  1. The medicine has at long last arrived!!! Express shipping was SO not express! We now have the Kanaplex and MetroPlex and even found some Epsom salt. What should we do first? Should we dose them together? I am beginning to also suspect that food may be part of the problem as well. She is still eating and pooing just fine but on the days when we fast her she seems to be more active and less "floaty". Not sure what other food we could get for her though. This one has worked the best by far until now. Any suggestions would be awesome! Thanks.
  2. Will do. She is definitely not better...just hamming it up for the camera. Or excited that both her people were hanging out with her. We have been working WAY too much! Lol. She also knew food would happen eventually.
  3. A new development.. video attached. on body near tail on right side, she seems to have a white fuzz or something..
  4. Ok. We will wait on the other and try to find some Epsom salt tomorrow after work. The other has been ordered and should be here by January 3rd (I'm hoping sooner!)...couldn't afford to expedite the shipping any more than we did.
  5. I was able to find API General Cure at my local pet store. It has 250mg Metrodidazol and 75mg Praziquantel per packet. While we are waiting on the other, should we try this?
  6. Ok. I will see what I can get ordered as soon as I get some more money coming in...silly Christmas! I'll order 2 of each as soon as I can. Is there anything we can do in the meantime to help? Should we feed her less/differently? Add Epsom salt? ... Also any idea where we can get ammonia? Sorry for all the questions!
  7. Yes. She is acting like she wants to bottom sit (actually fairly normal behavior for her unfortunately) but can't because she floats up when she tries. I'll try to get another video up tonight if I can so you can see it. What kind of antibiotic would I need? Don't think I have much on hand and usually have to order it due to the pet stores not carrying much where I live. Let me know and I'll see if I can find some and get it ordered/buy it asap. Just want her to be ok again! I would get Seachem Metronidazole and Kanaplex: http://www.petmountain.com/product/multi-purpose-aquarium-medications/11442-503346/seachem-seachem-metronidazole-marine-freshwater-medication.html http://www.petmountain.com/searchx/0/0/1/1/?s=kanaplex&g=SEARCH I'll try to order these asap. How much of each do I need? Just one of each? Are they similar to MetroMeds? I've been meaning to get those on hand for some time but am not sure where to order them either.

  9. Oh and we are going out for groceries. Should I try to find some Epsom salt? Certain brand I need to look for?
  10. Tank is filled to within about 2 inches from the top. I'll work on getting a photo up! Poop is looking pretty normal. Tried a couple tiny pieces of edamame the other night and found green poop about a day later--maybe going through her a bit slower than normal I guess. Haven't changed much in the diet. Usually just do the hikari sinking pellets, fast her on average once a week, and add in peas when we make them as a treat. Just feed her once a day and not very much (pinch of the hikari, 2-3 shelled smooshed peas).
  11. Hey. I'm posting tank and tap parameters below. Sorry it took me so long to get to this! Its a crazy busy time of year and I work retail so its been a bit insane. I am not totally certain what we were treating her for with the Maracyn (believe it was maybe a cloudy eye or bottom sitting issues) (may have also been treating the other fish (now deceased) that was in a hospital tank with that.). It is not in the tank now at all. I'll see if Josh remembers when we did that and which fish it was for. I believe Josh did a water change the day before yesterday so salt shouldn't be in there now (or if it is just a little). I think her buoyancy is having issues but not sure if we can do much to help. Please let me know what to do next. Tank Test Results: (Using API Drop Test Kit) Temp: 74.7 F pH: 7.4 (maybe as high a 7.6 (color is hard to read) Ammonia: 0 ppm Nitrites: 0 ppm Nitrates: 10 ppm Tap Water Test Results: pH: 7.6 Ammonia: 1.0 ppm Nitrites: 0 ppm NItrates: 5 ppm Thanks so much for helping!
  12. Oops! Not sure how that happened! Should be visible now I think. I'll get to the tap levels as soon as I can. I have to work tonight though so it might be later before I can get to it. Last time I checked them they were pretty closely matched if that helps.
  13. Hi everyone. My black moor, P-body is acting strange. Not sure if its swim bladder or something else. We have done a water change recently. Thanks in advance for any advice you can give! Let me know what other info you need! Wanted to get a video posted as soon as I had a chance. Floatiness seems to be getting worse... Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) 0-0.1 ppm * Nitrite Level(Tank) 0 ppm * Nitrate level(Tank) 30 ppm * Ammonia Level(Tap) haven't tested tap in a while but can if necessary * Nitrite Level(Tap) * Nitrate level(Tap) * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.6 * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API Drop Kit * Water temperature? 77.5 F * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 27 gallons (April 2013) * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Aquaclear 50 and Aquaclear 70 * How often do you change the water and how much? 60-70% about every 4-5 days. * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? 3 days ago * How many fish in the tank and their size? 1 black moor (P-body) * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Prime * What do you feed your fish and how often? Hikari Fancy Goldfish Sinking pellets (1 pinch-soaked before put into the tank) Nightly, Peas Occasionally, Repashy Occasionally * Any new fish added to the tank? No * Any medications added to the tank? A little bit of salt a couple days ago (15 tsp)--thought it might help. * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. 2 rounds Prazi in a couple years. Salt and Maracyn have been used for various issues including bottom sitting episodes, has been many months since the last of these treatments. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? None * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Going vertical often and floating in a strange way, frequent runs to top to gulp air and release bubbles...floating behavior is the worst, was bottom sitting prior to floating funny but this seems to have replaced that. She is eating fine.
  14. Awesome! Should we do just one dose or follow the whole dosing schedule? There is salt in the tank already. That is ok to leave in correct?
