  1. Thank you Jeana He’s been a permanent floor wriggler for about 6.5 years (I think)
  2. Thanks guys. This is the best photo I could get
  3. Hello everyone, I haven’t been around for quite a while (as you can tell by my Xmas profile pic!) due to illness, but I felt I owed it to my little wriggler to announce his grand old age on Kokos. This place saved his life quite a few years ago and he’s still soldiering on to this day. I wish I was well enough to do more for him. Happy 9th birthday Googs ❤️ I will try and take an updated photo at some point

    Goodbye Luka

    He was such a beautiful boy. RIP little one
  5. Thank you. I have been a member of this forum since 2010/11 My tank size is approx 27 US gallons. I have 1 smallish fish. and I have done a 100% WC change. As stated. Epsom has always cleared up his blisters. But I appreciate you taking the time to respond. As he has not had a blister for a long time, I thought I had made a mistake with the Epsom dosage, hence my post.
  6. Thanks so much Taryl for getting back to me. So, just to make sure.... that's definitely ok for litres (not US gallons) for 9 days? i'll have to do a DD thread when I return, but I'm hoping 100% clean water and Epsom will be a good start for now...
  7. Does anyone know if I can leave Epsom salt in the tank for 9 ish days at the dose of 1/2 tsp / 20 litres? i added it for a blister but I will be going away soon... 😱
  8. Actually, he's very adept at zooming around the tank via wriggling His fins are also fine. His swim bladder is just deflated which means he doesn't have any buoyancy, so he's in constant contact with the tank floor. He's survived this way for 6 ish years. It is a little sad but he seems to be fairly stable, stays the right way up and can still feed himself (with great enthusiasm!) Fins crossed he keeps hanging in there Lighting might be an issue but I shall take a video soon Thank you again for all the birthday wishes
  9. I've also weighed him. August 2012- 23g Now- 92g Doesnt seem like much for 5 years but I think that's pretty good for a fish that appears stunted Hopefully that's not all eye weight!
  10. I've not been around very much, but for those of you who remember Googles, he's made it to eight years old today!! My fishtank light is broken and so photos have been a little tricky, but here are a couple...
  11. Sneaky Boy (snail) died today
  12. I realised today that my large nerite snail is about 5 years old. How long do the usually live for? Google is telling me different things
