Re: Sand as a substrate.

You can take the fish out, put them in a bucket with an airstone, heater and things to hide in, and remove the substrate. Turn the filters off, so you don't get the stuff in the filters. Add the sand, wait for things to settle, turn on the filters and put the fish back. If I were to take that route...

Sand as a substrate.

I have an unusual question for you guys. Is there anyway of changing or partially changing the substrate of the fish tank that I already have up and running? I'm sure that I would have to remove at least 50% of the water to even attempt it. I would really like to have some sand in there for them to ...

Re: Treating for parasites.

That website looks promising, but I can't figure out where to order it. I guess I call the phone number.

Re: Treating for parasites.

Ok. I'm relieved to get a response so quickly. The package says nothing about using caution with certain fish. I'm a little frustrated about that. Have you had luck treating for this before? It looks like they have cws. Is that bacterial? I hate to think I'm treating them for the wrong thing!!

Treating for parasites.

I suspect that one or two of my loaches have a parasite of some kind. I bought API general cure ant-parasitic fish medication which should take care of it, but what I was needing to know from you guys is if I cut the dosage in half like with ich medicine.

Re: How Fast Do Clowns Grow?

I'll try to post pictures of my fish soon :) They're my pride and joy. Thanks for the other pic your fish. They look very happy and healthy. I hope to feed earthworms to my loaches when they get bigger...they may be a little small for that right now, what do you think? I just wish I didn't feel so e...

Re: What subtrate should I use when I setup my new tank?

For some reason I thought using sand instead of gravel would be more work (not sure why), but it almost sounds easier to work with than gravel. I can't wait to try it out! My poor loaches are trying their best to dig around and aren't having alot of luck :( They still try anyway though lol :lol: I'm...
