Rebuilding after ick and fungus

I have a 75 gallon lake Malawi tank. I bought 8 juveniles from a local store about 3 weeks ago and within a few days had a severe ick infection and also a fungal infection that wiped out 6 of my fish. I only had 10 in the system at that time b/c it was a newer setup. Ok, so I started treating with a...

pics for egg problem or whatever it is

Here are the best pics I could figure out... The stuff in question is on my fingernail... Sorry for the poor image, I had to crop the image down to get it to fit the parameters for the upload. There is a whitish translucent slime with some orang tinted material in the middle (very small specs). This...

Egg problem again

Okay, so I posted about some egg-sacks in my 26 gallon tank a few weeks ago. I have since started a 75 gallon tank and had originally 2 Malawi Cichlids in it. I went to the local store that I started going to a week ago on Friday and bought 8 small juveniles. I was out of town last week and my wife ...

Rocks

Hey, I wanted to check on something about rocks. I know Pam is on her trip, but hopefully we can figure this out anyway... I live an area where farming is huge and due to this, there are massive piles of stone laying all over the place. I have taken some of these and scrubbed and sandblasted them to...

thanks again

Pam,

Have a great time on the vacation... I have been to Guyana and loved it, hope to make Brazil someday. Be safe and all that and I will be sure to be in contact in the future.

Thank you again,

colony fish and food

Hi again Pam, I am continuing research for my 75 gallon which is still in process of being set up. I want to start looking for the types of new fish I can add when I get everything ready. I currently have one male psuedotropheus sp. Acei (yellow tail); One Jewel, I cannot find the scientific name (o...

filters

Hey Pam, I started a topic a few days ago about filtration. One of teh things you suggested is to check the canister I had and see if it works. It was a Fluval 400 series and unfortunately, it didn't even power up so it is in the trash. The other thing i was wondering, if I go with a top mounted fil...

id continued again

Pam, Thanks for the info and the links. On the darker one, they are definitely spots and not solid stripes at this time. I know that as he matures he will develop better coloration and it will be easier, so for now I will continue searching... The links that you gave me are fantastic too, I did see ...

help with id cont.

Ok, So I was able to edit the images and attach them. The light blue one with stripes, maybe a kenyi? The other one is the one that I am really wondering about. I cannot find anything that looks like him, I know he is a juvenile and that with maturation comes better coloring and what not, but I am h...

Info on setting up a new tank

Hi Pam, I have a 90 gallon tank with oak base and canopy in storage. I have not tried to set the system up because when I bought it (for only $350) it came with a really old canister filter and I don't even know if it works. I have my fish in about a 29 gallon tank and they seem to be happy, but I a...

Thank you. i do have a catfish, I don't remember what species... I know it is a really cool fish though. I did not even think of that. I will get the tank cleaned and take care of this. Thank you for your quick response.

Cichlids and breeding

Hi Pam, I need to know about cichlid eggs. I have an Acei and a Jewel, both adult about 1 year old. I recently was adding some cover to the tank and found masses of very small orange eggs in a slimy mass, but not all in one area, they are dispersed throughout the tank in the gravel. I am not sure if...
