  1. Ok, thank you Helen. I will up my WC's
  2. It was red before, that blood thing for like a month. I figured fresh water and a lol melafix would clear it up. Then the next day (two days ago) it doubled in size and is all red. Would salt help relieve the edema?

  4. It's still terrible. I dont want to touch her, she is a squirmer. And i dont want to hurt the eye by accident or stress her out further. I posted a concern about her eye being cloudy before. Maybe this is related somehow. The water Params of tap are all zero, same ph.
  5. There is a lava rock in the center with a live plant attached to it. The rock is about 13 cm in diameter. There are some plants in there too growing in the sand. I will post pic tomorrow. It is very late.
  6. Did a large water change so the water Params may not be what was goin on in the tank before. Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) 0 * Nitrite Level(Tank) 0 * Nitrate level(Tank) 0 * Ammonia Level(Tap) not done * Nitrite Level(Tap) not done * Nitrate level(Tap) not done * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.6 * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) not done Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API * Water temperature? 74 * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 56 gal. 3 years * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Eheim 3e Pro. I forget the numbers after, it is the bigger one * How often do you change the water and how much? At least once per week and >50% * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change?

Melafix * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Did salt tx about...6 months ago I think. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Red sore on bottom of fish from bottom sitting. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Bottom sitting.
  7. I believe i have a very bad case of pop eye in my moore. Here eye is completely red with a pustule of red at the bottom. It is also about 50% larger than the other eye. Doing water change now....help
  8. Me neither! I kept checking daily at raingarden to make sure he hadn't sold her. Cant wait to see what colors she turns.
  9. It's been quite a long time since I've posted any videos. Both of my original Orandas died and so Koko and Lucy are no longer with us I didn't give up and got 3 new fancies and a rubber lip pleco. No real major problems yet (knock on wood). By the way, this filter rocks!! I kinda wish I had the smaller one to compare it to because this one might be a bit too much current. Anyways, here's the video. Please excuse the audio and video quality, it was taken with my iPad. Also, need a vote. Moore's name: Flower (like the skunk from Bambi) or Chloey.
  10. Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) 0 * Nitrite Level(Tank) 0 * Nitrate level(Tank) <5.0 ppm * Ammonia Level(Tap) (Not done) * Nitrite Level(Tap) (Not done) * Nitrate level(Tap) (Not done) * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) Ph: 7.6 * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) (Not done) Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API * Water temperature? Thermometer met algae magnet. So, I'm goin off of the temp setting of heater in aquarium. About 74 degrees. * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 56g. About 3 years * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Eheim huge...um Eheim 3e 2078 * How often do you change the water and how much? Lately, once a week between 50 and 60 percent. * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? 50% Tuesday. And 100% a week before that. * How many fish in the tank and their size? 3 fancies- Ryukin, Oranda, and moore between 6-7 inches I believe. And a small rubber lip pleco * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Prime. Sometimes use seachem flourish * What do you feed your fish and how often? Fed twice a day. In the morning pellets (hikari lionhead pellets) and in the evening repashi soilent green (soon to be replaced by super green). * Any new fish added to the tank? The moore and the ryukin are the "newest" addition to the tank. About 5 months ago-ish. So, no not really. * Any medications added to the tank? Presently, after the water change there is approx 1/2 tsp/gallon of salt in the aquarium from the prior 1 tsp/gallon tx. * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Salt, 3 rounds of Prazi, used melafix for the moore a few months ago-her eye seemed a bit red. All tx's lasted about 1 week. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Just white spots that pop up here and there. Sometimes the oranda gets them on his wen but I assume that's just wen growth. Occasionally, I will see the white spots on the moore. And it's hard to tell on the ryukin because of her color. The moore has a cloudy eye and was lethargic prior to the salt treatment. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc. The moore and the oranda sometimes bottom sit at night. Steve from Raingarden said that a strong filter like I have might cause them to bottom sit so that they can rest. I don't know if that's true. They come up to eat though.
  11. Hmm. Here's the link again, the above isn't working for some reason. It's hard to photograph.
  12. Here is the link. The eye is her right. The spec is her left top dorsal fin -http://youtu.be/I85oEZzM2U8-
  13. Hi everyone. Not near the aquarium right now so i will post Params later. So, for a few weeks she was bottom sitting. I wasn't sure if it was because of the current in the tank as she would still eat. Then I was watching her and I noticed 1 or 2 specs of "salt" on her. And at least one of her eyes were slightly cloudy. We did a 100% water change that day because we needed to move the 56g aquarium. (3 fancies in it btw). I added 1tsp/gal of salt to the aquarium and she has been a lot more active. I still see the 1 to two specs and her eye is still a lil cloudy but better than before. So...now what? Meds i have are melafix, medigold, metro meds, salt, and this ich cure all stuff which only seems practical for smaller tanks Tank is 56 gallons. 3 fancies: 1 oranda, a ryukin, moore and a small rubber lip Pleco. Tank has been goin for about 3 years. Did a 50% water change today after allowing the salt to work for 1 week. My dslr crashed on me so if ya'll want pics it will be iPhone quality. The one or two specs will be hard to photograph i think. Thanks!
  14. Should I wait to see if it gets better or give her something for it? I don't recall her having a red eye before but i could be wrong. It's possible that she scratched it on a rock. I have melafix and medigold on hand. Water Paramus were good when I last checked a few days ago. I just did water change so a measurement at this time would not be accurate. Thanks.
