It looks bacterial for sure, I just want to know what was in the eSha so I can know why it didn't work.
Thanks for the prompt reply and the lesson in bacteria. It's always neat to learn something.
According to the leaflet eSHa 2000 contains the following:
per 1 ml eSHa 2000:
6,3 mg Ethacridini lactas
3,2 mg Cuprum 2+
0,26 mg Metylorange
1 mg (ad aqua <- don't know what this means, but it's stated this way on the pack) Proflavin
Sorry about the measurements being in litres and grams. That's how we roll here in Europe :) CONSULT FORM
How big is the tank? - 120 litres Is it uncycled or cycled? - I'm not sure what this means? I have a filterbox with filters and air (co2 I guess)? How much water do you change and how often? - It varies a bit. Usually 1/4 every two weeks or 1/3 every three weeks. WATER STATS Please try to answer these to the best of your ability. If you do not have a test kit, please bring a sample of tankwater to the nearest local pet store. They should test it for cheap, but most of the time free. Write the actual numbers down, don’t take ‘okay’, ‘low’ or ‘fine’ for an answer. Temperature: - 25 degree celcius in the far end of the tank pH: N/A Ammonia: N/A Nitrite: N/A Nitrate:
I haven't tested the water recently and I haven't got any testkits left.
I hope the information was helpful.
