  1. Hi everybody. I am having an issue with my 4 comet goldfish. Last week I noticed that they had started to develop a white line down the edge of all their fins. One fish in particular is in a bad way with ripped fins and white mucus looking stuff on him. And I noticed this morning a patch of what I would describe as hemorrhaging on body toward tail. All fish had clamped fins, not interested in food and listless-staying on bottom. I do a weekly water change of 50% and gravel clean sand. Tank is a 280 Litre running a 500gph canister, has good surface agitation and 3 airstones running. The 4 goldfish are the only occupants. I am at a loss for their sudden demise.The only thing that has changed is that I borrowed their light for another tank and so the algae that was in tank growing on back wall and rocks has all died off. Is it possible that this die off is the cause of the sickness? The tank was dark for around 3 weeks. with light only from kitchen window. That is also why I did not notice the deterioration until I put a new light on tank. I did water changes for 3 days of 30% and went over sand really well. I have added aqaurium salt and am using melafix for the fin damage. 2 of the 4 seem to be responding and are swimming around but still not actively looking for food. However my biggest and sickest fish does not seem to be getting any better. I have him in an isolation chamber in main tank with an airstone as the others were nipping his tail. He only has one arm - he is called "flip" (which is how he was when I bought him) and so he is really struggling as his remaining flipper has been affected by whatever this is attacking him. I have been up most of the night looking at websites trying to identify problem/cause. It does not look like ich. There are no little white spots. Nor is it like a fungus. More like a whitening of the mucus membrane. He also has a cloudy eye. I am thinking it may be a parasite of some sort. Was thinking of treating with malachite green and formalin as a last ditch effort to save my flip. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Hi All. Great price on a quality Skimmer. Today only - Age of Aquariums - Deltec TC1655 Ben
  3. This lemon peel that I collected around two years back has always been a little pushy, but wouldn’t harm a fly, it has no interest in corals at all, so over all, its been a good reef pet. That made me work quite hard to make sure it survived this massive damage that the poor little beggar has been through. This is a pic of it at its worst bleeding profusely, its now doing great in its own tub with a chelmon it likes to make believe its in charge of,lol, it cant even swim properly, but hey, it has forged its place in my hobby. I don't usually get attached to any reef life these days, but this little toughie is a little different.

  7. So I somehow managed to all but melt my Val in my 4f fresh water. Light was off almost 24 hours because of flood blackout, when I turned light back on almost all my typical cheapy val had melted from the tips to over half way down each long leaf. I checked the PH it was just over 6 (not sure how my fish were alive), fixed the PH, put some of those plant tablets under the now half dead val forest and am now waiting. Temp is a consistent 25-26, PH now normalized 6.7 and duel T5 about 14 hours a day. I also turned off the air attachment on the in tank filter just in case the excess oxygen was starving the plants of Co2. I also dosed with excel carbon and liquid plant food/trace elements. I also pulled off all the melted/dead parts of the leaves so it didn't spread and didn't waste its photosynthesis energy on repairing and focused just on growing. So far after two days there hasn't really been any improvement I am trying to save them because Val isn't actually cheap where I live, the shops here gouge because there's no competition ($250 pep bn, $20 4cm clown loaches, etc). I live in Port Macquarie NSW, moved here from Brisbane about 6 months ago. Is there anything I can do to save these plants? I have other plants like swords, blyx, etc that are perfectly fine but the val just absolutely disintegrated in less than two days? Thanks in Advance! (first post )

  13. Ok so today was WC day (water change every Saturday for me) and I got to thinking about how a forum member helped me to do my WC using a hose to drain & refill the 6 foot tank and how much easier it now is to do rather than carting buckets all through the house and courtyard. So I got to wondering what tips and ideas others may have to make keeping an aquarium easier? One I can offer is what do you do with all the old bubble bendy bubble wands? (such as the Bubblio ones)? I keep them and when I am aquascaping, I cut a length off the old wand and wrap it around the stem of the plant. Gives me a chance to move it around it in the tank without it floating to see if I like the position before planting. I remove the wand before planting though. Another tip given to me through the week by a friend is to use Viva Paper Towel to wipe the inside of the tank glass - even under water - if you fold it up into a pad it does not break up and it's great to remove any film of the inside of the glass. It is better than using a magnet which causes debris & any algae to float around in the tank or maybe settle elsewhere in the tank. Using the Viva Towel (I suggest that one as it is the strongest) stops the stuff from floating about then you just discard.
