  1. Since i last posted here my 55 gallon has turned green. And i do mean GREEN. I am not enjoying it one bit. But i think my fish are. So i am leaving it until i can stand it no longer. I actually even bought a jumbo bottle of prazi to help with the clean up process when the time comes. I had wondered before if i had green water or not. No question about it now. Suki. Always curious to what is going on. Potter. He isn't enjoying the green as much as everyone else. But i am hoping he will with some time. Mooshu. She is definitely hoping for food. And Luna. I can see her growing everyday.She is the reason the water is staying green.
  2. I have a floaty fish in another tank. Should i try adding some of the green water to his tank and see if it takes over there too? I have plenty lol. I am adding some other green pics to my blog section if you are interested.
  3. Thank you. I feel better. I was just fixing to whine about the redness some more. Lol. I will let it go and concentrate on the positive. But i have one more question. Could it be salt sensitivity. It looks the slightest bit redder today and the water is perfect. I'm wondering now about the salt.
  4. Thank you. I looked at them a lot myself and then all of sudden he just kind of stuck out amongst the rest. I did get lucky didn't i ??? He really needs to breed more of these little beauties.
  5. Lol. Thank you so much. I REALLY like this little fish. And if i can ever cure him of being a big chicken i will LOVE this fish. It is a pleasure to watch and i really hope i can keep him alive to reach his full potential. I think he will be a sight to see. Thank you. I am actually relieved to hear that redness takes a while. At least i am not behind schedule. And thank you so much for the help.
  6. Yes the fins are white. And i wasn't really worried at first because i thought steady water changes would clear it right up. But it has been a week since the ammonia spike and there is no improvement yet.
  7. 0 ammonia,o nitrite and 5 nitrate on my QT tank this morning before water change. Fins are still red. I will post pics sometime today when the water clears from the buffer.
  8. 0 on everything. I did an 80 percent water change again today. I tested the ammonia tonight to see if i needed to change it again and it was still zero so i am leaving it until tomorrow.
  9. Thank you. The spots are already looking better. I'm starting to wonder if they were there at all but my hubby saw them too so i know they were. I see one or two more. But he has weeks of salt left to go anyway so all should be fine. But what about blood still showing in his fins. That showed up after my ammonia spike and we have had about 4 or 5 days of perfect water and it still looks red.
  10. Well as much of a pain as this green water is. The benefits are undeniable. It honestly seems that Luna is getting larger before our eyes. I am not going to show pics yet because the before and after pics i believe are going to be amazing. And yes the water has turned bright green. And I am having to change some out every 4 days just to be able to see the fish. Just letting you know i am still suffering through for the benefit. Of my babies.Lol.
  11. Thank you guys. And yes he is eating great. But i can tell ich itches. He swims really fast and dives sideways trying to scratch though. I will start twice daily water changes tomorrow. Whats the life cycle like of ich? How long does it usually take for it to start dieing off?

  13. Well do to my carelessness. We have a case of ich. General tension in my house and my fish is suffering because of it. The story goes Kimono is still in quarantine. I have been taking everything very slowly since i got him. I left the salt at .1 trying to give my cycle a chance to really kick in before i upped it to .3. So he stayed at .1 For about a week. The first several days everything was great. Readings were perfect he was doing great and salt at .1. Then......i skipped a 2 days of testing. Out of the blue ammonia at 1. Totally my fault. I was too confident in that cycle holding. So where i am now. 3 days ago i check and find ammonia. And blood in fins. I do a major water change and up the salt to .2. Another water change the next day. And everyday since. The ick started last night. Another major water change today and upped the salt to .3. And temp to 80. So just to clarify this. Water changes everyday. Temp 80. And salt at .3. By the way I'm crying. I just lost Sushi and this stuff is scaring the crap out of me. Help me.
  14. He is just absolutely beautiful. What a lucky find!
