    Feeding Frequency

    For Ranchu that are over year old what is the feeding frequency? Twice daily or just once day is suffice? I am feeding Thera A 1mm pellets in morning and night or gel food at night. Temperature is around 75 degrees tank is heated indoor.
  2. Thai SVR Red/white Ranchu 3.5 inch for sale. Local pickup in NYC only. PM for more info.
  3. Can't seem to find find potassium permanganate for sale in the USA as koi or goldfish medication?
  4. What is good mechanical filtration for 90 gallon tank? I have good biological filtration in place already using ATI V sponge and Aquaclear 110. However I need to clear up the water and get waste out of sight.
  5. At what nitrate level is harmful to fish? My nitrate is 5 ppm but my ammonia and nitrate is zero.

    Feedings after 1st year

    I have SVR-Ranchu kept indoors and they are now past 1 year old. I am happy with their developments how often do I have to feed them now? Can they be fed once a day or they did they still need to be feed several times a day? At what age can they be be feed once a day?
  8. Update I treated the fish with Prazi (got idea from another forum) and it worked. Fish is back to health and the cracks on the head has healed. Perform 90% water change and one treatment of Prazi-pro that lasted 4 days. Fish got better after two days.
  9. Wen and head on one of my ranchu is crackinng all around. As if the body is growing bigger. The side cracking is long almost straight line. One top of head spacing of small gaps. What disease is this? Fish not swimming much or eating.

    Good swimming around and eating. Not sitting anymore it was the prazi treatment that was making it sit.

    Shakaho was right, the fish treated and doing better on it own. It was probably sitting on bottom due to the medication treatment.

    No now but it was .3% for about a week, last week. I was treating Acriflavine ms combined with salt last week to treat some fungus issues. Thanks for letting me know this is how prazi works. I'll let it alone for few more days and see. All other fish doing fine so this one must have more serious fluke issue.
