How old are my pakistans???

I`m trying to guess the approximate age of my three full-grown pakistans. I got them in 2008. They were almost fully grown when I got them. (Approx 12 cm). They have maybe grown 1-2 cm since then, but not more. Does anyone know how old they might be? I`ve read they are slow in growth, but I really d...

Levamisole dosage calculator.... Where is it??

Hi!
The link to Chefkeiths dosage calculator in the article about Levamisole seems to be broken or not valid. Does anyone know where, or if, it is located somewhere else?

Kind regards

What is the active ingredient in the med you are using? Do you perform thorough vacuum cleanings?

Kind regards

Interesting :D That would mean that Algae growth is a good thing?? (I lOVE algae, so that would be good news for me). I never do large water changes, so I`m on to a "good" thing here??:D

Thanks for all the answers :D I`ve been away on tour again so I haven`t been able to respond. Of all the suggestions, I can rule out a couple. One of the very few advantages of living in Norway is that our tap water is probably the cleanest in the world. So there are no issues with water changes and...

Why the hell...

do all my tanks function better the less water changes I perform??? I travel a lot and have long periods away from home. When I come home all parameters are fine, and no fish have died. I have to add that my tanks are major over-filtered, but still....???? Even Nitrates are really low, the less wate...

I also noticed a growth spurt after medicating for skinny disease (Alternated Levamisol, antibiotics and Prazi). I think part of the story about "Loaches are slow growing" can be translated to: "Fish with low level infections and infestations of bacteria, parasites and other issues are slow growing...

Skunks and Hillstream?

Hi! I have a 120l Skunk tank with 9 skunks. This is the tank with the most aeration and circulation of all my tanks. I was wondering what you thought about the idea of adding a Sewellia Lineolata (or 2) in this tank?? I know that skunks can be quite feisty buggers, but has anyone tried this combo? S...

Yeah! I was quite amazed myself. It was kind of a fishy version of Lazarus comeback :lol: I`ve never seen such a bad case of Ich ever before. Either personally or in pictures.

A happy ich story!

Just wanted to share this little story. 2 weeks ago I got a major outburst of ich in my q-tank. Totally my own fault, (but never mind that :oops: ). Anyway; in the tank there were 6 clowns, 2 striatas and 2 newly purchased kubs (the reasons for the outburst). Because of work I couldn`t monitor the t...

I always find it difficult to say when they have had enough :oops: I have some special hi-protein pellets which make them all bulge up a lot when they get it. Including this big one.
