[Another question is, have you ever seen danios or tetras covered in sand? Not me. I've never seen those fish dig for food either. I've seen loaches with a little sand stuck to them, but I've never seen mid-top dwelling fish covered in sand. That`s a good point. It`s basically Loaches I have seen t...

We have a few really advanced catfish-people in this country, so I`m not surprised :) I`m not on that level I`m afraid, but I really look forward to meeting you all :D

My experience exactly! Especially my Clowns are constantly covered in "White spot". I`ve learned now to distuinguish between the parasite and sand, but the first times I saw this I was scared stiff. Just last night all my clowns were covered with "white spot", this morning, they were all fine. My gu...

Hi Mark!
Probably a stupid question; but do you have fine graveled (white sand) in this tank?

In my country it`s not legal, but I have gotten it sent twice, and theres been no problem with customs. I would guess it`s not legal in the UK either. Sometimes one has to take a risk to save the fish.

I used both Maracyn 1+2 together.

Hi!. You can order Maracyn online from Petco.com I live in Norway and have a similar problem with getting meds, but online purchasing works fine. I have also just finished a cure with the combo flubenol/Maracyn. The fish showed no sign of gaining weight after the dewormer cure was finished (3 rounds...

Yeah! It`s pretty remarkable. I`ve spent 6 months or so, trying to analyze - and get hold of - the right meds. Once i got it all, the cure is simply a miracle - THÀNKS TO ALL YOU PEOPLE ON LOACHES :D :D Chefkieth: I think I`ll follow youre advice. The cured fish will enter the main tank tomorrow. Th...

Ok! I might have a go at this :D But another question has come to mind; I looked into the q-tank tonight and I noticed something remarkable. I have treated the fish with 3*flubenol and 1*maracyn 1+2. I saw yesterday that finally all but the last clown were totally fine. Gaining weight and feeding ha...

I suppose so. Any hints on how? I find it a bit difficult to imagine the tiny one getting enough food with meds with 8 clowns, 7 striatas and 6 dwarfs to compete with. But I`m willing to give it a shot, I just don`t understand how to accomplish it???. Also; the meds are powder, how do I mix it into ...

Skinny after treatment in Q tank

Hi! I have 2 clowns and 2 dwarfs that I am treating in a q-tank. So far everything looks fine. I have done 3 flubenol treatments and I`m about to do a second round of maracyn 1+2. The fish are gaining weight and I`m expecting a full recovery :D But; looking into my main tank I see one more clown whi...

Just a little comment on snails and loaches.... I have several tanks with different botiine species and I consider myself a loachaholic and I`m proud of it :D However; my initial interest in Loaches came about because I had a snail problem! I then started to read about these fish (primarily here on ...
