Is this fish is ill ?? if it is then how can i cure him. it may happen if he eat more food as my pet shopkeeper told me to give a pinch of food
Please help me soon I am so scare
You added fish way to fast. How big is this tank?
You need to let your tank cycle. This can take 3-12 weeks. The ammonia in your tank is buring your fish.
Tank is 10g. So now tell what should i do ??
Could you show me a picture of this "Tiger Fish?"
I would get all of the fish out.
Cycling can be done with fish. You need to do a water change, 25% about 3 times week to prveent levels of ammonia and nitrites from becomeing toxic.
Add dechlorinator every time you do a water change and your fish have a descent chance of surviving the cycle none the worse for wear.
Thanks for such a nice quick reply from all of u. As i am using internet from my office. Tomorrow I will bring my all six fish picture so u can well help me more. :)
I don't want to let my fish die.
Are these Tiger Fish Tiger Barbs?
I persoanlly would do a 10-20% change every day untill your levels die down. Thats what I did, and the cycle went by really fast.
i don't understand what u tell in above sentence
It is okay to change water twice a day(i.e. every 12 hrs) or only Once a day.
Good job. Your Tiger Fish are Tiger Barbs. One of my favorites. :) Once you are done cycling, I would get 2 or 3 more, because they can get very nippy in small groups.
