aquarium problem....Help pls.
Hi to everyone,
I had my aquariums (10 and 20 gal) last month.... and things are not quite good. 10 gal. is for the small fish like guppies and neon tetras, the 20 gal. are for my redcap oranda and pearlscale.
I had problems with maintaining my 2 aquariums water clear, good for me and my fish, I've already accomplished that.
But lately, some of my fish are not that energetic as my other fish, and after a day or two, I would see it floating and not moving (dead...huhuhu).
I've done the basic things to do, which I've read on the internet like don't overfeed them, replace about 10-15% of the aquariums water, and put anti-chlorine if the water is tap water, stuff like that.
I'm worried and sad to see my fish looking unhealthy and not energetic...=(
Can anyone give me tips or any internet links that I can follow......I would really want to maintain my 2 aquariums....but i'm not sure where to start.
hello and welcome.
what filters do you have for your tanks ?
do you know what the water readings are,
Re: aquarium problem....Help pls.
I see you're from Manila. I live in Iloilo myself. Nice to meet you.:) We'll try to help and hopefully you'll be able to solve your problems soon enough.
What size are these fish right now? Pearlscales grow to 5-6 inches max whereas orandas can reach 8 inches. A 20g, to be honest, is too small and can support only two pearlscales. How many times do you change your water and how often do you do that? How about the 10g?
For the 20g, the same food diet suggested can be applied. I would also like to know the number of fish of each species in there and their size. What is also the temperature? For this tank, a 20% daily water change shouldn't hurt or try doing it every other day.
Also, answer Willow's questions.:mrgreen:
By the way, welcome to Fishforum.com and good luck.:wave:
