floaty oranda, thoughts on treatment please

3 posts in this topic

Hi, I have a floaty oranda so I moved NipChee from a 75 gallon into a 20 gallon long tank last night with 5 gallons of water. He/she seems to have a bit easier time with the swimming but will still be on the side or back more often than not. I've done alot of reading on koko's so I will start duckweed and homemade gel food for floaters. I guess I'm asking if anyone has any experience with the 2 diet changes, any thoughts if NipChee will be able to go back to the 75 gallon or will it be better to keep in a shallower water level permanently?

I apologize but I can't copy and paste, the nitrate is 20, ammonia & nitrite 0, ph 7.5, weekly changes apx 30%. NLS algae max soaked in seachem nourish. Thank you for any input :)
