I am not new to fish, but I am new to LARGE tanks I recently aquired a 300 gal aqurium to good to pass up. It took a little doing to get it in the house, but we got it set up. I have a Texas cichlid I have had 5 or 6 years in a 55 and he despreatly needed more space. I had been looking for a100 to 125 when I stumbled on the 300. The tank came with a peco approx 8 in long, my Texas is approx 10 inches. They were fine and I added a salvinea --sp? all was good. A week ago a friend gave me a yellow tiger Oscar approx 10 inches and what he is calling a Jack Dempsey (unlike any I have ever seen befor) approx 14 inches long. My PH and ammonia are great, the temp is a little cool, today I noticed "Jack" has a white fungus looking "ickish" looking something on his nose and one fin. What can I do tonight to help him, raise the temp, add salt, isolate him? all I have availiable is a 10 gal (if he would fit)? Then what do I need to do or what product do I need to get to clear up the problem before it gets worse. HELP Sue in Texas
