worried about Tatsu PLEASE READ :(
« on: August 19, 2010, 05:24:43 PM »

'm really worried about Tatsu Sad his pectoral fin looks like its split and he's a little less active and not eating as much Sad and one of his scales looks like he rubbed it off Sad he still comes up to the front of the tank ... But it looks like both pectoral fins have white spots Sad I don't know what to do Sad how do I treat him? And there are two oto's in the tank so I'm worried it might hurt them... Should I isolate him? Everyone else seems fine though I'll treat them all Sad I had an ammonia spike yesterday so I did a huge water change ( 30 percent) and added amquel plus to protect my buddies Sad

The parameters are horrible Sad ammonia 1.5 ppm, PH 8 ( which is normal here ) Nitrite .30, Nitrate 5ppm. Everything was 0 when I put him in a week ago and the tank had been cycled Sad I had goldfish in it ( which I know you should never use to cycle but yeah ... ) and got rid of them because i couldnt handle it and moved Tatsu into a bigger tank and got him a few buddies. everyone seems to be doing fine just a little lazy good color no fading like they will when they stress. The amquel + neutralizes everything so as bad as the parameters are it wont hurt them. I posted pictures of my oto's to show that even they re fine .. I dont get it.

Can't really see your pictures.

Are you still using the the glass beads as your substrate or are there any gravel on the bottom of the tank. I didn't see any gravel from the pictures in your previous posts.
What type of filter are you using (brand and model #) and are there room for biological media in the filter.
In a such a small setup as yours, either the filter or substrate has to be the right type for the tank to cycle properly or else your water parameters will never be stable.

Elli, I cannot open the links, my pc sais the link appears to be broken.

Your tank is undergoing another cycle because you added too many fish at once. I thought you said no more fish with Tatsu in the tank, I am afraid to think it is overstocked again Huh Hope this is not the case.

How did you go with the move?
