  2. Hi Everyone, just got some new guppy's and was wandering how long to quarantine them, before adding them into my main tank that has Endler's and some guppy's in it as well. Also how can I tell if the new guppy's have a disease that will wipe out my current population, (last time i introduced new guppy's, i lost 20 guppies, Out of 23), and how do I then treat them. thanks in advance for the help.

  5. <BR><BR>Hi team, I am wanting to buy a good medication for quarantining wild caught fish in. I used to use some great stuff that I think was called Monkeys Nuts but searching for that all I can find is literally peanuts. Can anyone remember what the best stuff was, or, what is the best stuff available these days? Thanks, Andrew. - Fishtraderlau in Blackwater...
  6. I am taking the advice of members on here and setting up a quarantine tank, I have been seeding an extra filter in a tank for about 3 weeks and being that it's only a small tank I am able to syphon water from the top tank to the bottom. Providing this tank has been cleaned thoughly before filling is this tank ready to be used? I'm only asking as I've read on here a few different theories on setting up tanks. What other measures if any should I take before using this tank? Please feel free to add advice no matter how basic it seems. You can teach an old dog new tricks. Thanks for reading :cool
  7. Picked up 5 tetras yesterday, all seemed fine in the shop. Put them in the tank when i got home and 1 really didn't look healthy after 30 mins, found him dead this morning. Another one had developed a spot on it's tail by morning. I have a 1ft tank, filled 3/4 of water from an existing tank and 1/4 new water. 3 sponge filters (1 been in a tank for a while, 1 in a tank for a week and 1 new one), no gravel. I set the temp to 26. I did have a light on the tank and turns out it generates more heat than i thought, got the tank up to about 28 I've got a picture from this morning, trying to get an updated one but they keep hiding from me! I was going to put some treatment in but held off, the spot seems to be shrinking so i'll give it another day. I don't have a reading from this morning since i locked myself out my place and was late to work, going to get some readings later but need to duck out quickly. So is that the right setup for a quarantine tank or did i stuff it up? I was told they can be hard to move and i'm wondering if it was that. Would the white spot transfer to the other fish if it didn't shrink?
