IM using the API freshwater test kit...amonia, nitrites, ph, and nitrates...the tanks have been running for well over a month now...we just moved, and everyone was healthy and happy...now we move...and it all goes down the drain. They have been eating...till today...i tap on the tank and they will get up off the ground and rush over to where i feed them...the calico didnt do this today. They do look like the picture u posted, but only the big calico has this. the other four are covered in slimy whiteish film...not thick...but enough to dull their color...and that is the golfish tank. i know they need a filter...but i havent been able to afford them one...they were in a 10 gal aquarium, and i was enlightened that that was too small for them...so i moved them to this one once we got moved. i will be getting a filter asap...
The guppies, im pretty sure that i have figured this one out...im pretty sure they have mouth fungus, and a body fungus. some of them have even started getting black on the edges of their fins, and in the rays of their tails...sometimes the guppies will swim for hours chasing the current of the filter...
one of the neon tetras seems to have what looks like Brooklynella hostilis as have a few of the previous guppies that died. they would get a white spot like that...then the half moon somewhere in their body which would then be replaced by what looks like crusty or fungus...or something...it obviously hurts them as they dont want to move the affected area.
