Kuhlii "filtering" sand?

Hi! Just a quick question. Do the Pangio Kuhlii "filter" the sand through the gills like for instance Corydoras? My reason for asking is that I have never seen my kuhliis do this. I`ve seen them dig in the substrate making the sand go "everywhere" :lol: But not sand actually passing through the gill...

A short update on this case. Maracyn 2 was administered into the tank yesterday. Here is the result. Looks better don`t you think? This is obviously not the same fish as in the previous photos, but this fish also had similar symptoms. http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm81/tender_8/Pbedringensvei.j...

Do clowns eat dead snails?

Hi folks! As the subject says: do they eat dead snails? I was just wondering because my experience is that when I drop quite a big handful of Trumpets in my tank, they seem to go after the ones that move. They check out most of them, but they seem to overlook the ones that are just lying still, and ...

Hi!
It`s usually called "greying out". It`s quite normal. They often do this in various situations. Exitement, fights, etc. Nothing to worry about, I would say :)

I have to rectify some of the info I gave you. The dewormers that have been used is Flubenol and dewormer from RMD. Active ingredient is Piperazine. Prazi has nor been tried in this case. It is mostly fry which are attacked. Only one adult and this is a Corydoras cf. burgessi. In fact, the fry were ...

Hi Diana!
No. The fish died yesterday evening, so no autopsy has been performed.

Yeah. It`s Kusuri Wormer Plus I also have. Great med. I`m awaiting a shipment of Levamisole from Charles Harrison. But now were getting a little off-topic here concerning the skinny cory`s :wink:

No it`s not Olga. I don`t know what nick she uses on CW, but definetly not that :D Yeah, I know it can be tricky with skinny. My few cases have all been resolved once I illegally got hold of the right meds. Flubenol and Maracyn. Whether these cases can be solved I have no idea about. But I think it`...

Yeah, she`s a member, so I`m convinced she`s posted it there. But skinny on fish is likely to need the same treatment, whether it is Cory or Loaches isn`t it?. So I was hoping on some hints from you skinny-experts aswell :)

It is always "dangerous" to pass on second-hand info as facts, but she`s not a member here so I will try the best I can. This is going on in three different tanks with fry. C.Metae and C.green Lazer fry. It is not every fish but quite a few. Some of the grown-ups has also developed this problem. (I ...

Hi Mick!
I don`t think disposing of them is going to happen. Also, it is important to try and resolve the issue. It would be useful for future spawns and to widen the knowledge of illness/treatment.

C. Metae fry with Skinny Disease? A BIT URGENT!!

Some fellow aquarists in Norway has started to encounter some coinciding problems with Cory fry. To me it looks like Cory with some sort of Skinny Disease. First the fry seems to be totally emaciated. I know they have tried different dewormers like Prazi and Flubenol, but to no avail, so far. Having...

Damnit :evil:
Because of a family-situation I have to cancel my trip to the get-together tomorrow. :( :(
Anyway; I wish you all a great day, and I will try to make it next time.

Kind regards
