Re: YoYo Loach Rescue!!

Thank you to both of you for your replies!! I dosed the tank with Levamisole last night because I feel like he just looks wormy... or heaven forbid... like he might have dropsy. Despite reading the threads on how to attach photos I still can't figure out an easy way to do that? However I can give a ...

YoYo Loach Rescue!!

Hi there... So, I've had so much success with my clown loaches since finding this forum & making it through my inital "learning curve" <eye roll> I really wish my LFS would have educated me properly PRIOR to selling me these babies, but at least I've taken the time to learn about them & care for the...

Making sure everyone gets enough (but not TOO MUCH) food!

So, I'm having a little bit of a dilemma during feeding time. All of my top feeder fish are OVER eating & I'm not sure my Loaches & Pleco are getting enough food. I use bottom sinking pellets which seem to keep the top feeders (tetras, guppies, & molly) away & give my bottom feeders a chance to eat,...

We had to euthanize our little guy. RIP Baby Bear - we're so sorry we couldn't make you feel better. =(

Re: Clown STILL SKINNY even after Levamisol, Maracyn/Maracyn

Man, my little guy won't really eatat all now. I didn't want to completely separate him but last night he was actually being bullied around for no reason by my other 2 loaches. So, I decided to use a live bearer net container thing to put him in but still leave him in the fully cycled tank with the ...

Re: Clown STILL SKINNY even after Levamisol, Maracyn/Maracyn

So, I did some more research & I decided on API's General Cure, which contains Metronidazole & Praziquantel. I just put in my second dose & my poor little guy hasn't really changed behavior wise (he's still eating but kind of subdued compared to everyone else), but it almost looks as if he's lost MO...

Re: Clown STILL SKINNY even after Levamisol, Maracyn/Maracyn

Thank you Diana. I will try what you suggested & proceed from there. Is it better to isolate him or to treat the whole tank? I figure if I isolate him it might be the death of him. He seems super happy schooling around with his buddies & if he's alone I'm afraid he'll just turn into a complete failu...

Re: Clown STILL SKINNY even after Levamisol, Maracyn/Maracyn

Hey thanks for the reply!! I'm beginning to think that another round of the antibiotic might be just what the fish doctor ordered. He does eat - in fact he's a PIG!! That's exactly why I'm still so worried about him being so skinny. Seems like with all he eats that he should be much bigger!! The oth...

Re: Remove carbon w/ Levamisole?

Baby Bear is like 85% better this evening!! SO STRANGE because all we did was change the water & add our regular dechlorinator & a little nitrifying bacteria. Also, we were gone for most of the day so I just left the lights off & let them fast & when we got home I turned the lights on to check him o...

Re: Remove carbon w/ Levamisole?

Yes, everyone else is fantastic! Looks like they're putting on weight & super happy & swimming all around. Even he's ACTING happy, which is good because maybe (hopefully) we've caught WHATEVER it is early enough to really do something about it... I think? We preformed a 30% water change & we're goin...
