Re: *My* algae wafer!

Thank you redshark!
I was told they are a new variety of gold barb; they are more glittery. I wasn’t looking for them but fell in love with them.
They are very active and don’t take any s*+t off the Tiger barbs. :D

*My* algae wafer!

So I put this in a new thread. Just love the Botia Darios! I could watch my tank all day :D So I added the 6 new ones and my survivor to the 75g, 11 days ago. I’ve done the first treatment of levamisole and will repeat in about 2 weeks. Everyone in the 75 is doing fantastic; eating like champs. <br/...

Re: Levamisole

I will do that!

It’s also probably a good practice since I’m feeding more and there may be more waste than is optimal.

Happy Holidays to you also!

Re: Levamisole

That’s a crypt balansae in the photo. Also have amazon swords, crypt wendti, crypt willisi, and java moss in that tank. I do a 30% water change once a week and my nitrates stay under 20. I spent way too much time today watching these guys. They are active and out and about. I originally was waiting ...

Re: Levamisole

Thanks again! The levamisole that I purchased had the dosage. I gave the second half dose yesterday and will do water changes starting tomorrow. They are about 1 3/4 “ +/-. All are very active and eating well. I feed them twice a day and do a meal of frozen brine shrimp/bloodworms every other day. I...

So last night I got home from work (midnight as I work second shift) and turned on my room lights. They illuminate tje tank a bit and I was watching the Darios. I thought a couple of ...

Re: Levamisole

Thank you Nancy. I did purchase both levamisole and flubendazole. The flubendazole is coming from the UK so I haven’t gotten it yet. I may hold off on the Darios for now. They all look good and are eating; even giving the barbs a run for the money for the food. I did opt to put them in my establishe...

Re: Levamisole

Thanks Charles. That does make sense. Maybe I should hold off then. 3 of the 4 sids that I lost did get skinny and stop eating but as you explained it may have not been more stress than worms. The replacements I purchased were from the same group and are of great weight and activity. The same for th...

Levamisole

2 days ago I purchased 6 more Botia Darios to join my lone surviving one after my disastrous water issues. They are all doing well. However, I do want to worm all with the levamisole (including my sids as I have a couple that look thinner to me and Prazipro hasn’t seemed to help). The directions say...

I did do the second dose yesterday. And yes, the last two days, the skinny guys have become much more active.
