  1. A lot of Aqua One Canisters are hard to get the lid off eg, Cf2200 Cf2400 etc, this might also apply to some other similar Canisters. I bought one the other day and spent two days pulling and tugging and pouring hot water on it, to no avail. All of a sudden I had an idea, pressure. I took the hoses off and stuck a garden hose in one of the holes and when it was full, blocked the other one with my thumb and off she came as simple as anything. Don't forget to undo the latches first, and don't do it in your lounge room, although it doesn't need much pressure. You can probably leave the hoses on as well if you can get the garden hose into them.
  2. Hi all - need a little advice. A week ago, I noticed my large boy pepp had a gold shimmer running down the edge of the top caudal fin, a small patch on the rear of dorsal fin, and his body looked "dusty" He was also breathing quite rapidly. Thinking it was velvet got some Waterlife Protozin. As I have some juvie corys, and some cory wrigglers,I was advised to use 1/2 recommended dose for twice the dosage period I have just finished Day 6 - and "its" still there, although he is no longer breathing rapidly. I have yet to find it on the other three pepps, 11 cories,50 wrigglers, 18 tetras and one lonely apisto -although sterbai colouring makes it tricky to see. Was advised to treat in main tank, keeping all occupants in, as velvet is a parasite with three stage life cycle. Should I continue the dosage for another 6 days? Should I up it to 3/4 dose? Is there a better treatment? Could it be something else? I've scoured the net and can't find anything that resembles it, other than velvet.. Or have I just caught him on the way out to the disco? Water parameters all 0 for nitrite/ammonia, 5 for nitrate. PH @6.8 Tank up and running for 9 months. No recent aquisitions - other than cory spawns. Last death was around a month ago - rummy nose went tail up over night - no visable symptoms of illness. Temp steady at 26.5 Water changes weekly of 30% with aged and treated water. Same day, very week, piped out, pumped in. 4 fter planted 280 litres filtered by Eheim 2217 & 2213 with powerhead and sponge filter. Any help would be appreciated 'cos I'm a bit :boggle: :worry: :perplex: Please help me help Stan.
