Re: Dojos' holiday dialog

Hope they help & I can't wait to see your kiddos!

Re: Stress kills - and the fish don't like it either.

Can I ask for an update here? I'm going through the same crud - treating 3 ity-bity baby clowns & 5 tetras for Ich, in a 30 gallon, fully cycled QT tank (we just upgraded to a 75 for our bigger loaches/other fish, so the tank was a perfect place to OT some more). We bumped up the heat & were trying ...

Re: Caring for 5 SUPER TINY Clowns - HELP!

It's definitely icky ICH! Only a few more spots, but we did a big water change (30%) & a massive gravel vacuum. I didn't wan't to change too much of the water because of the salt we were trying (added slowly & want to remove slowly as well). We also very slowly (over a period of 3 hours) added the R...

Re: Caring for 5 SUPER TINY Clowns - HELP!

So, I had an entire tank with Ich once & it was terrible I ended up losing all of them (introduced it with a moss ball - didn't realize they had some fish in the tank - let alone fish with Ich). The fish I lost were goldfish - cold water & despite aggressive treatment it just got worse & worse & it ...

Re: New home, new water

Aww... Nancy, I'm so sorry you lost your Yoyos. =( I'm also confused as to why this is happening 3 months post move, because I'm not personally aware of how pH & Nitrates could have anything in common? Do you have any live plants? You may want to consider adding some of them to help with the Nitrate...

Re: Caring for 5 SUPER TINY Clowns - HELP!

That gives me some hope, redshark! Thanks. Food wise: I'm doing a mix of frozen blood worms, baby brine with spriulina, & some "immune boosting" flake food. I just put a tiny bit of each into a little medicine cup with tank water until it's thawed/waterlogged then dump it in. The tetras are usually ...

Re: Caring for 5 SUPER TINY Clowns - HELP!

Lost another one this morning. The tiniest one. =( Feeling discouraged, but going to keep at it. The others seem vibrant, but I'm learning not to take this for granted, because the two that died went from healthy looking & active & even eating to dead in a few short minutes. I really am doing everyt...

Re: Caring for 5 SUPER TINY Clowns - HELP!

I definitely think that adding a few more hiding places is always a good thing, too! There are at least 7 in there now, but for such young, shy fish I think you're right. I actually already have some PVC that I can cut, sand, wash & throw in there. I'll do that today! I've started my regular QT dewo...

Re: Caring for 5 SUPER TINY Clowns - HELP!

So, at this point, 3 of the little loaches seem to have settled in quite nicely, they're schooling together & dancing up & down the side of the tank. The 4th is sort of MIA. I'm pretty sure he's hiding in a pirate skull cave that I provided for them, but I was kind of bummed not to see him/her schoo...

Caring for 5 SUPER TINY Clowns - HELP!

Hi there, Well, we have had ultimate success with moving everyone over to the new tank & we figured since the old tank is already cycled & fantastic & ready to go, why not use it to QT a couple new loaches?! So, we were looking at the LFS & OMG, heartbroken over the SUPER TEENY TINY baby clowns they...

Re: My Clowns are FIGHTING! =(

Thank you so much for the reply! They really seem to have settled down a lot. Now their little battle wounds just have to heal up. I really think all of the aggression was related to the fasting. I thought that since it would probably be stressful for them to have their tank moved that it would help...
