  1. Hi guys. I have 5 Trifasciata rainbowfish all of which I bought at roughly the same size. 2 have developed skinny heads, one worse than the other. The other three fish are very healthy and growing well length and width. There is no obvious (to me) signs of worms, being no stringy faeces, no discoloured faeces and no change in eating habits. They don't get to eat as much as the other guys because they are smaller but they still have a full stomach after feeding time. There is one black khuli loach in the tank also. I've got some photos here. I was planning on using metro on them but after looking into it I really don't know what I'm doing so I'd like to ask your advice on what product to use. I was also going to do a salt bath but that's not really effective on internal parasites. I'd love your help guys, he's a healthy fish in all aspects other than being thin. He still eats very well so i'm confident a treatment in his food will work well.
  2. Hi guys, I'm hoping someone might be able to help me out. I have a sick juvenile Red Scribbelt Discus. He/she has turned really dark and has some kind of white patch on its side, eyes have gone slightly cloudy, not eating and looks quite skinny. He isn't hiding and is hanging out with his other discus friends but is showing a bit of aggression every now and then. He's also not darting or scratching himself and doesn't appear to be gasping. Ammonia 0 Nitrite 0 Nitrate 5 Ph 7 I've been mixing the food up a bit. Tetra colour bits, Tropical flakes, pellets, Frozen discus food - frozen bloodworms (feeding these as treats only), frozen brine shrimp. Feeding four times a day, alternating food types at each mealtime. Tank is planted, with 2x dwarf gouramis, 9 neon tetras, 5 harlequins, 2 corydoras, 4 other discus (all appear to be healthy), 2 small bristle nose. Doing 40% water changes 3x per week or when needed. Tank is 160L. I have upped the temp from 28 degrees to 30 and added salt. Also added a worming tablet 48 hours ago. We don't have a fish vet in tassie, otherwise I would've consulted them..I've only had him for two weeks. He doesn't look so good
  3. Hi, Around a year ago I bought 3 congo tetras, 2 females and one male. The male died quite a while ago and since then the females just haven't been happy. They seem stressed and do not look well. I keep them with much smaller peaceful tetras and the water is fine and all that stuff I just know they aren't happy as they are now. I don't know what to do with them, I don't think I am providing a happy environment for them I would happily sell them to someone but I do not want to sell fish that I do not think are well.... What should I do? I don't have another tank to put them in to rehabilitate them and make them more happy. I don't have the room to buy more of them so they have friends to school with. I feel like a bad person... what should I do?
  4. hi guys i noticed this morning that my turtle wasn't swimming around in is tank like he usually does every morning and i when i fed him he didn't want to eat he was just sitting there under the water in the same spot not really moving and when i got home from school he still hasn't eaten the bit of food i had put in the morning and almost looked dead so i pulled him out and he is moving but not like he would before. Any idea on what this is i don't really want him to die! thanks will get pics up really soon
  5. Hi all, I was just wondering if someone could help me out. I have a peacock that seems to be rather unwell. He is one of our first fish and was originally the dominate male, however since setting up our new tank just under 2 months ago he has become sub dominate. Since moving to the new tank he has started to be picked on, however now they are picking on him worse and he has started to swim as you can see in the video below. They aren't overly agressive towards him, however they do like to have a go at him fairly regularly. Last weekend when there were a large amount of fish that passed away due to water quality we had done a small water change and smashed the new water with prime, since that day this peacock has been acting weird. All the other fish seem fine, however they become very skittish after the water change as well. We did a big water change last night and stripped the tank right back to give it a good clean and all the other fish seem fine now. When we cleaned the tank we moved the peacock over to another tank so he wasn't stressed out by all the fuss in the main tank while cleaning. He seemed to sit on the bottom on his side for a couple of mins, then swim around (normally) for a while and return back to the bottom. Once we finished cleaning the tank we returned him to the main tank and he seemed to swim straight to our large venustus trio (biggest, least agressive fish in the tank) and swim (the same way as you can see in the video) around the tank with them. I am not sure if this is for protection or something ..... it is really weird. I was originally thinking he may have had his gills burnt with the poor quality water last weekend, however all the other fish in the tank are fine so I am not sure what is going on. Anyway, here is the video - If anyone has any advice or an idea of what may be wrong with him it would be greatly appreciated if you shared it with me. Thanks, Regards, Ryan
