Got sent this question and figured I’d post a video answering it. Tank changes are the answer to fixing your cloudy fish tank water and I give some possible reasons why it may have happened. Let me know what you think.
Alright. Before I say screw it and throw in the towel….. again…. anyone have any ideas what this is? It has killed 2 of my Dalmatian Mollies and is now getting her. Afraid it’s going to kill all of my fish. How do I get rid of it? What do I need to use? What do I need to do? The last Dalmatian to get it, someone said to use Primafix. We stopped halfway through it because we started losing fish every day. Should we use it again. http://bettafishcaretaker.com/
I couldn’t get a pic of her other side, but the other side is worse. I can’t really see any thing in the pics! What are the symptoms? How long has the tank been running? Water parameters? this is our tank 🙁 water tested perfect not that long ago.. need another test.. tank has been up for about 2 months. She has a bump on her side and her scales look pinecony around that spot.
Looks like dropsy to me since I think I can see pine coning. More pictures please. Does anybody have thoughts or recommendations on this bump on my Blue Dwarf’s mouth please? I thought it was looking better but it does not go away. He is acting just as happy and social as ever. He lives in a 36 gallon with just 6 tetras right now. I have a few more tetras and 2 cory catfish waiting in quarantine to join, and their time is up but I do not want to move them until I have solved this mystery. Thank you!
So goldfish jumped out of the tank this morning and got carried around the house by the dog. It’s missing a bunch of scales and fins aren’t in the greatest shape but apparently he’s still alive. Anything extra I can do to help him? Wow, and he’s still alive ? I have no suggestions other then keep him alone and have him recover if possible if not you must stop the suffering I guess.
No need to treat anything at this point. Just keep the water clean. Don’t treat for anything you don’t have. Medication will only add to the stress of an already stressful situation. A MEthylene blue bath will help deliver extra oxygen to the blood and will stain any places the slime coat has been removed. It’s a wonderful blue liquid that is used for ammonia and nitrite burns as well as used in place of QT when new fish are introduced. It will help him recover more quickly, and as the world has said.
Clean water and frequent partials to keep mineralization and dissolved oxygen levels up. Epsom salt helps draw out liquids, so mainly useful for bloating and fluid retention. If you want to use AQ salt in the methylene blue bath that would be most helpful rememdy over Epsom.
