  1. Hi! It has been so hectic. I’ve been working 50ish hours a week 6 days a week haha. I went ahead and ordered the dimillin that I linked. It sadly won’t be here until the 14th at the earliest. Im just going to keep up with water changes while I wait. How should I go about diluting it and what should I use to dilute it? Chemistry and I were not good friends so dilution calculations aren’t my strong suit hahahaha
  2. Okay! I’ll see how the rest of the metro treatment is and if needed I’ll get the dimillin
  3. Okay! Should I order that? I wouldn’t be sure how to dose it. I guess 1/10 of a teaspoon? Should I wait to see how the metro does over the next few days do you think?
  4. I can’t seem to find it online. All I found was one that treats 500 gallons per teaspoon for ponds. Dimilin-X Koi & Goldfish Treatment: Anchor Worm Fish Lice Flukes diflubenzuron https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IW8YT3A/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_bi95Eb6VJ0HCF I’ll keep up with the metro and see how they do for the time being. Should I salt at .1% maybe?
  5. She didn’t handle the first salt dip I did too well when I treated with them prazipro before the Paragaurd and metro. Other than bottom sitting from time to time she appears to be acting normal. My baby oranda like to sit in the plants but they both come out almost immediately for food. I’m so confused as to what they are as well. From what I see in person it looks like fluke irritation form what I’ve seen in the past.
  6. i believe we did about 8 days of the Paraguard and i believe today was day 6 of metro. I forgot to log the first day.
  7. Hi! I’m so sorry for touch a delayed response. I was waiting for the meds in the mail and I have a new job now. It’s been hectic here haha. Today is day 5 I believe (dosing every other day) and she’s still bottom sitting. No ulcers, just the red spots still and bottom sitting.
  8. So far I’m not really seeing any kind of improvements and she’s still bottom sitting intermittently
  9. Hi guys! I hope everyone is well and staying safe! it’s been a while since I made a tank post. I still have my 55 gallon. I just got a new light for it. It’s a fluval LED. I can control it from my phone. It’s super cool!
  10. I definitely will! he might have been wild caught I’m not sure. When I get another I’ll ask the distributor. My BN definitely was captive bred. Right in my tank! 😂 She has to be at least 2-4 years old now. The BP Pleco I had for probably about 4-6 months before he passed. He was just starting to not hide as much too
  11. So a new issue is starting. What I thought was a female oranda is a boy! He will not stop chasing her trying to breed I woke up one morning and BOOM his pectorals were covered in breeding tubercles 😂 also, my blue phantom Pleco passed away. I’m not sure why, my bushy nose is fine. Today was the first day of medicine. It got a little delayed. Hopefully it works!
  12. Not that often. Right now it’s 77 and she seems okay. I’m just waiting for the medicine now.
  13. My tank is at 78 and she seems to be sucking air at the top. I have two air pumps connected to my tank, (Fluval Q2 and Q1)so there should be plenty of oxygen. Should I lower the temp?
  14. Yes, the Pleco and oranda are new. I added the oranda in around December and the Pleco I think around January. Okay, sounds good! Thank you! Should I remove all the salt and prazi in there before treating I’m assuming? Best to do a 90% back to back WC? I’ll also turn on my UV sterilizer for the time being too until I can get the Paraguard to help remove the prazi too. The seachem brand right? I just ordered it and it won’t be here until the 17th
