    Really hoping this is April Fools.

    Help me choose a canister filter? :)

    I had a SunSun and its flow rate was appalling. It held up for a couple of years, though. I have a Fluval 306 now and I love it.
  3. Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) 0ppm * Nitrite Level(Tank) 0ppm * Nitrate level(Tank) 20ppm * Ammonia Level(Tap) 0ppm * Nitrite Level(Tap) 0ppm * Nitrate level(Tap) 20ppm * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.6 * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.6 Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API master test kit * Water temperature? unknown, probably around 60ish * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 10 gal quarantine, 2 days * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? there's a small filter, no idea what turnover * How often do you change the water and how much? have been changing 100% every day I was trying to upload pics but my internet is so slow that it isn't happening. He has a tiny white spot on his dorsal fin as well as one on his tail. He has spots on his wen too but they look like growth to me. He has breeding tubercles on his opercula and rays so they could possible just be tubercles too. (?) He's eating fine but he just can't get off the bottom without lots of effort. He was fasted yesterday, eating again today. His mum had endless swim bladder problems too, in case that's relevant. On hand I have erythromycin, flubendazole, dimetridazole and some packets floating around which I think are triple sulfa. I ordered epsom salt (will be here monday) as something leaked all in my old bag. I have sources for a few other meds if needed. Thank you! * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? today (technically yesterday, lol) 100% * How many fish in the tank and their size? just him, oranda/fantail mix about 3" long * What kind of water additives or conditioners? seachem safe * What do you feed your fish and how often? sinking pellets, small amounts a few times a day, usually supplemented w/ veg * Any new fish added to the tank? - * Any medications added to the tank? no * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank.Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. none * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? white spot on dorsal and tail fin and wen growth spots (?) odd stringy poop * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? stuck at bottom
  4. I loooove the "fancy orange thing" You also reminded me that I need to weigh my fish!

    Is it true?

    "Normal" lifespans vary so much. My mother has a 13 year old single tail and some cousins of mine had a weird looking singletail with a wen that lasted nearly 20 years. Even then a fish can die of "old age" at just a couple of years old.

    Am I right in thinking you have a trio?? They say thank you! They're pretty loveable, aren't they?

    ^^ Actually now I've taken a second look, they do look like lionheads.

    They're really great pets! And they both say thank you.

    I thought I'd share my rabbits with you all. Sorry about the black and white, I couldn't seem to fix the saturation! Briar, my 6 month old Netherland Dwarf. And Marley my four and a half year old mongrel.

    I think you should kidnap those ranchu for me... Everything looks really good there, though.

    Annoyed with reoccurring algae/diatoms

    That's quite heavily stocked. More water changes would probably help. Also land plants with their roots submerged would help use up whatever the algae is using, e.g nitrates.

    Robin Ryukin and Randy Oranda

    I really like Robin's shape. Both look great though.

    Googles Update

    ^^ It looks a lot like wen tissue to me as well. Also, I'm not sure about fish but eye lenses do (rarely) dislocate in other species. They can also get cataracts.
  14. I noticed you're in the UK. All Pond Solutions sell canister filters for reasonable prices. https://www.allpondsolutions.co.uk/aquarium/filters/external/ They also sell on amazon.

    Tank size...

    I ordered a 50L tote after. It'll do until I can bring myself to spend £80+ on a 20 gallon tank!
