I hope it works on the eggs! I dosed it twice and I actually dosed it pretty high.
I'm actually curious now if Clear Water can be used as a medication for fish since it contains PP. But I would be afraid to double dose it with fish and I actually don't think it would be strong enough to do anything.
It can stain, though. I dosed it again today just in case and I actually found another snail but he was in bad shape. I also accidentally fell asleep so it was in there for a few hours. I hope it doesn't harm my plants 0_0
I'm glad the Jungle Clear worked. I may need to use it soon. I'm thinking of just getting rid of all the leopard ramshorns. Their shells are brittle and they're so small. They never grow. :/ The pink pearl ramshorns I have are twice their size. I dunno. Snails. I'll just have to dose the tub and run because I don't wanna see the convulsions.
Hi there. As far as I can tell, that jungle clear water did a great job getting rid of snails. However right after I added it, two snails appeared out of nowhere. I believe they were trying to get to the surface and out of the water, but they made it halfway up the side of the tank and started to like, convulse. They were stretching out, doing all sorts of strange movements and pulling in and out of their shells. I had no idea it was possible for a snail to actually look like he was in so much pain.
I couldn't help but cry, lol, but both were gone after a few minutes and I went to change the water in the tank.
Does he actually literally stand on his tail or nose, down on the bottom of the tank? It's not quite so bad if they're vertical in midwater but when they just stand on their tails leaning on the side of the tank, it's bad.
Oh hurray for the loaches! That's awesome! Can you post the video somewhere?
Thanks. Bahari does that kind of often, floats vertically or stands on his tail on the substrate. He's done it for quite some time, now, but he can still hold himself horizontally if he tries.
I have exciting news that I just wanted to share, lol. I fed my brothers loaches NLS pellets today and after awhile they came out and were very active looking around for food even with the tank lights on! I got some videos, one was of his black loach (Frank) doing what looks like breakdancing, lol, and his Kuhli loach (Claudio) creeping in the background, lol. Its the first time I've seen them out long enough to really get some good videos!
As the internal organs start to shut down, the ability to regulate the swimbladder is either compromised and/or fluid buildup causes the swimbladder to compress so it doesn't work (something like that anyway). Either way, when a fish loses the ability to stay horizontal, it's a very bad sign.
I'm not all that familiar with plecos either. But from what I've seen with other suckermouth fish, it's possible the gilling is related to their suctioning food from surfaces or suctioning onto the glass. My otos seem to have heavy gilling when they're stuck to the glass. I do know that because they're nocturnal, it's normal for them to be really skittery under light.
I hope so.. His color also looks a little off or different to me, but of course I really can't get a good look at him because he usually hides in the car cave when the lights are on and he hides from me when I come near the tank. He'll come out when the tank lights turn off but of course he scurries off to hide when I try shining my keychain flashlight at him so I can get a better look.
I feel like I may just be overreacting since I know nothing about plecos. I've never had one of my own in my life, but his seems spazzy and twitchy and when I caught a look of him when he was on the front of the tank, he looked like he may have been gilling. That part in the picture right below his mouth and directly above his fins was contracting quickly (like deep, heavy breathing). I'm just not sure if those are his gills or if it has something to do with when he sucks on things (or whatever they do, lol).
I know he (she?) isn't my fish, but I want him to be okay.
