  1. Past hour
  2. New Red cap oranda and moor are my joy and this Summer was a disaster as super heat conditions plus a cloud of material from our pine trees which shade our ponds created a special condition which produced in very rapid time ( few hours) a toxic milky white water . This killed many of my prized fishes. Now we restart with a very nice little group of red cap oranda , a few black moor and about fifty nice guppy from Israel and shir lanka. These of course are all inside acquariums. It is a few years since I visit shop and purchase new fish and I am impressed by the high quality of their health. So far only ick and of course the normal % deaths of guppy after travel. I hope that soon I will be able to provide more good news .
  3. Today
  4. Seeing these white fuzzy spots on my new fishes faces. I don't think its ick. Is it a parasite or fungus. Will general cure work? Tank is cycled. Temp is 68 F. .. Three 5 inch orandas All 3 fish seems to have 3 or 4 of the spots. Ick is smaller, these are fewer spots but larger Thank you

  11. Last week
  12. Lol this morning I told her it was 7:30AM. She said I know you can't see Well without your glass mom it 7:40 am not 7:30 am. The things I go though already. [emoji16] Sent from my VS995 using Tapatalk
  13. Today I made another gel food for all my aquarium inhabitants. The recipe is simple: pure Spirulina powder 2 Oz, approximately 50gr ; dry Gammarus Srimps 1 Oz, approximately 25gr ; 1 large tea cup/mug of boiled peas with the skin ; 2 tea spoons red paprika powder ; 1 tablet multivitamins ; regular plain gelatine. I blended all these ingredients with hot water (the quantity of the water must be 3 times more than the ingredients). And the most important, all aquatic inhabitants (fish, snails, shrimps) love the food ......well, so far
  14. I can't get over how big Justine is! She is a gorgeous young lady
  15. Angels Plus have just confirmed they don’t ship to the UK anyway
  16. I had to look up TAG, that’s amazing! She does look like a clever little sausage 😊 Sorry to hear she struggles a little in other areas but great that things are getting better
  17. Lol she has grown a lot and is very smart little girl. I haven't told many but she is tested as a TAG kid..... Meaning she qualified for higher learning level. She was tested in k and was at or above the 97%. But with that she does have some social issues, but getting better everyday. She just loved to help everyone she knows. Just a sweet little girl.

  18. I’m researching euthanasia and treatment options simultaneously. I’m obviously finding it hard to pick an option. He doesn’t even have a tank anymore and my partner has just accidentally broken the air pump
  19. I’ve just seen your reply. I was about to ask whether I’d be crazy to buy this medicated food and syringe feed him? https://angelsplus.com/collections/fish-medications/products/medicated-antibiotic-flakes I’ve syringe fed him before but that was with metromeds. I know you can’t tell me what to do. I’m just finding it difficult because unlike before, he’s moving etc (albeit not eating). Its hard for me to jump from no treatment attempts straight to euthanasia. But I also want to do what’s best for him. i noticed on one of my old dropsy threads (“nitrates in tap water to high” )that Epsom salt was recommended. ugh, I just don’t know ☹️☹️☹️
  20. What a beautiful little girly Without sounding like some kind of annoying long distance aunty, I can’t believe how much she’s grown! She was like a little cherub when I last saw her
  21. Here's my growing little girl.
  22. Sure have missed ya[emoji4] Sent from my VS995 using Tapatalk
  23. Honestly I don’t weigh or measure, I watch them carefully. Measuring is more important for surgery than euthanizing. I usually start with 1/2 teaspoon clove oil in a gallon of water and swirl it around. I add the animal and wait until they go still and their breathing looks a bit slowed down. Then I add another 1/2 teaspoon of the clove oil and wait until I see no movement at all, about five more minutes. I’d they’re still moving after 5 minutes in the little clove oil water bucket I add another 1/2 teaspoon, and continue in that fashion until I see zero movement. Then I leave them for half an hour to make sure all brain function has ceased. Oftentimies when they’re not moving their gills they are still ‘there’, just numb and with depressed respiration, so time is what helps them pass after that point. It’s very gentle but takes a little time. I’m sorry, I know it’s so hard to talk about when it’s a beloved friend Sometimes it’s the best choice though, especially if they’re not doing well and you don’t have the energy or ability to help alleviate it beyond What you’ve already done.
  24. Thanks Taryl. I was looking in the video and article section I think I’ll be doing it tomorrow. I’m unsure of both the sedation dosage and the euthanise dosage for a fish of his size. I think he was around 90g last year before he lost his pelvic fin. I can weigh him again if necessary
