I have found out that my pangasius catfish has "boils" .... I really need your  help on away to get rid of these boils .... he has about five ... and keeps  getting more everyday .... I am not treating his water ... I am keeping him in a small tank though .. so as to prevent my other fish from getting these "boils". Is there something I can treat him with ... or could they go away???? I  need a reply as quickly as possible .. I feel as if he is not going to make it  for long. Thanks for your help ...

Reply. Hello again Anonymous, I recommend that you immediately give your Pangasius Catfish the Recommended Treatment every day until it improves and the boils are gone.

Click here for the details about the Recommended Treatment.

I also recommend that you double that amount of Aquarium Salt in the Recommended Treatment to two Tablespoons of Aquarium Salt per each five gallons of water in your hospital tank.

You can do this because a Pangasius is very tolerant of Aquarium Salt. If you have other fish in your hospital tank, you will have to be cautious about the amount of Aquarium Salt you put in their water.

Click here for more about Aquarium Salt.

The Recommended Treatment is a simple but very effective treatment. Other more exotic drugs, that are usually more expensive, are really a shot in the dark.

I hope the Recommended Treatment helps your Pangasius.

I saw 2 fish from 2 different breeders at an auction site and I really wanted them both, so I made a huge mistake by getting them both because I only have 1 quarantine tank. They did both arrive on the same day which was yesterday, and I acclimated them slowly to the quarantine tank but it was not until a little later that night when I turned on the tank light that I noticed that the Zebra pleco was covered with ich.
 
He was sent overnight delivery but I guess the shipping stress might have been to much. Anyhow I ask the breeder what to use for ich with the pleco but the medicine they told me to use I cannot find in 5 different stores, and some have never heard of it. One store talked me in to getting Formalite III with malachite green and formaldehyde. He said it was safe to use with the catfish if I only use 2/3 of the recommended dose.
 
I was very worried about using malachite green with a catfish. After putting it in tonight the fish seem a little worse and I am noticing a few spots that have now infected the Betta, did I make a bad mistake again with the medicine I bought? If I did, can you switch medicines after starting one? I hear that is very hard on the fish to switch during treatment?
 
I hope it is OK to come to you especially because I did not buy the fish from you, it is just that I have found your site very knowledgeable and I get so sad when the fish get sick and die and I really need someone very knowledgeable to help me. These fish were very expensive also to me especially the Zebra pleco, but the financial loss is not as important to me as loosing the fish. I thank you very much for any advice that you could give.
 
                          Thanks,

Reply. Hello Aundrea. I recommend you give your Zebra Pleco. the Recommended Treatment every day until your fish is cured.

Click here for more about the Recommended Treatment, which has six steps, and you should do all six exactly as listed.

Part of the Recommended Treatment includes adding Quick Cure to the water each day. It sounds like Formalite III has similar ingredients, but I've never tried Formalite III.

I know that Quick Cure works well to cure ick, and it's available in many stores that sell pet fish, so you should have no trouble finding Quick Cure.

Hello again, sorry to bother you with another question, but I just can't seem to find the answer anywhere, and you guys have the best website there is, and you've helped us more than you can know. I wrote you the other day about our male betta, our first, and he's doing splendidly, at least we think so. He's in a 2 gallon aquarium, alone, with a filter and bubble stone (you told me I ought to take them out - more on that later!) We also have a little cave he loves to go it (we bought it at Wal-Mart) as well as an aquarium plant, very small.
 
We bought the big box testing kit and test the Ph levels at least 2-3 times daily, as I've begun to realize it changes quite rapidly. It was dangerously high yesterday, 8.6, and after the required 4 drops of Ph down it went to 8.2. The lowest we've gotten it is 7.8 (tonight). Fishy is eating and seems very happy. What do you think can be causing these wild fluctuations?? We promise we're not overfeeding him.
 
I noticed these rapid fluctuations began when I removed the filter, after having received your wonderful response to my question. I panicked and put it back it, worried about Fishy. He truly seems to be happy, not at all anxious regarding the current made by the filter. It's very small, of course, to accomodate the small aquarium. One last question, since it fluctuates more than once a day on occasion, is it safe to keep putting in the 4 drops of Ph Down?? (The most I've had to do is twice in one day, but I worry about fishy!!!) Can you help us???
 
Once again, thank you so much for such a tremendously helpful site.
Most sincerely,
Lauren K.

Reply. Hello Lauren, we appreciate your comments. Thank you for your compliments. I'm glad you measured the pH in your water, because a pH of 8.6 is too high for a Betta.

Your plants should not be causing your pH to go up, if anything they might cause it to drop slightly.

I recommend that you begin changing 20% of the water each day in your aquarium. Use bottled drinking water to replace the water that you remove. Do not used distilled or de-ionized bottled water.

Remove 20% of the water in your aquarium each day and replace that water with bottled drinking water. Lets calculate how much water you should change each day.

You say your aquarium has 2 gallons of water, which is 8 quarts, or 16 pints, and 16 pints x 20% = 16 x 0.2 = 3.2 pints. rounded down to 3 pints.

So remove 3 pints of water each day from your aquarium and pour 3 pints of bottled drinking water back in.

If you do this and your pH stays above 8.0, then something in your aquarium is causing the pH of your water to increase.

It could be some gravel or a rock, containing minerals that dissolve in the water and increase the pH. You should ask yourself if everything in your aquarium was made and labeled for use in aquariums.

Problems like yours have often been caused by putting something in your aquarium that was not made and labeled for use in aquariums and fish bowls.

I would recommend that you avoid using the so called pH-down chemicals. Use bottled drinking water, and find out what is causing your pH to go up. I think it is probably some gravel, rocks, or perhaps a sea shell.

Just found your site and love it. My question is Two of my goldfish have swim bladder. What can I do to correct this
 
TM
 
 
 
Reply. Hello TM, your Goldfish are probably swimming erratically, and as you mentioned this is thought to be caused by swim bladder problems. Possibly a bacterial infection in the Goldfish's swim bladder infection.

I recommend that you immediately add Aquarium Salt to your water. Add one Tablespoon per each five gallons of aquarium water.

Each day remove 20% of the water from your aquarium, and replace it with tap water. Every fifth day add more Aquarium Salt.

Click here for more about Aquarium Salt.

Do you have a layer of gravel that is more than 1/4" thick? If so, it may be contributing to your fish's problems.

Use a  Gravel Washer to clean the gravel, then start removing the gravel until it is less than 1/4" thick, or remove all of it.

Click here for more washing gravel.

Do you have an undergravel filter in your aquarium? It may also be contributing to the problem. Get a filter with a BIO-Wheel.

Click here for more about filters with BIO-Wheels.

Here is a radical treatment that might help your Gold Fish. Increase the temperature by 4 degrees F. for two days, then lower the temperature back to where it is now.

Repeat this cycle every few day; two days of warmer water followed by two days of cooler water. If the swim bladder problem is caused by a certain bacteria, changing the water's temperature may hinder that bacteria.

That is why our bodies run a fever, when we are sick, to hinder the bacteria that are responsible.

You should be sure that you feed your Gold Fish food that is labeled for Gold Fish and not for Tropical Fish. Gold Fish do not properly digest food that is made for Tropical Fish.

Click here for more about feeding fish.

Also feed your Gold Fish a few freeze dried blood worms each day, and if you can find live Black Worms, feed a few of them to your Gold Fish every other day.

Click here for more information about feeding live Black Worms to your fish.

Hi I have a question to ask I have a 10-gallon and a 29 gallon tank going containing several types of fish, Some of these fish have grown quite large since I  bought them.
 
My question is the 10 gal. tank has cloudy water since I changed the filter 1 week ago, Now the 29 gal tank is developing cloudy water also and a amount of goldfish dung on the bottom, the 2 tanks do have rocks and pieces of glass you can find in those Betta, water lilly vases.
 
Now what did I possibly do wrong? I feed them 3 times daily I have algea eaters in each tank. I need to clear this cloudyness up before my fish die and I have alot of money invested into these tanks, Any advise you can give me I would definately appreciate, I would to start breeding Bettas but I have to straighten this out first.
 
Thank you,
Barb

I have some interest in breeding beta's but wanted first to keep them.  I got a Beta for my birthday in a one quart bowl.  I said to myself, this will not do. I remembered reading on your site about the Beta bowl set-up and recreated it.  I used cultured gravel from my existing aquarium, three ghost shrimp, and some live plants.
 
The beta started chasing, attacking, and killing the ghost shrimp.  I have gone through a total of eight ghost shrimp in a few days.  The last three I brought to work (where the beta lives) he killed before lunch time.  Needless to say, I am disappointed and open for suggestions on how to keep the ghost shrimp, or if I should just change the water more frequently and go without them.
 
I feed beta bites and freeze dried blood worms (alternately) with a little bit of frozen shrimp when I can remember to cut him off a piece before I feed my fish at home.  I don't think he's hungry, but I am conservative in my feeding.
 
Thanks for your help,
Richard
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Richard. Some male Bettas are exceptionally  aggressive, and will attack Ghost Shrimp and even White Clouds. It sounds like you have an exceptionally aggressive male Betta.

I think males like yours must live alone, though they will tolerate a Snail, and the Snail will do part of the scavenging work that the Ghost Shrimp were intended to do.

I will be going to Oceanside CA in a week and a half. Do you have a retail store or just a warehouse? The reason that I ask this is I would love to come and pick out a Black Crowntail Male Betta. Plus it would also save on shipping. So if you could give me some info that would be great.
 
Thanks a lot.
Kim
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Kim, thank you for your email. We do not have a retail store, and we do not permit any customers in our facilities.

Several people have been annoyed by this, and we apologize to them. But we are not insured for retail, we are not zoned for retail, and our staff is not trained for retail, but they are very well trained in caring for fish and properly shipping them.

Reply. Hello again. We recommend a big fish bowl that contains at least 1-gallon of water, and we think our 1.5-gallon fish bowl is even better.

Click here for more information about our Fish Bowl Kit.

We also recommend a thin layer of cultured gravel on the bottom of this bowl, and we recommend you remove 20% of the water in the bowl twice each week and replace that water with bottled drinking water.

Do not use tap water, distilled water, or de-ionized water in your fish bowl. Click here for more information about keeping fish in fish bowls.

I have had a Siamese Tiger Fish in the past. You say they are not necessarily a brackish fish and I was wondering if you had any insight into the problem I encountered. I had the fish for some time (months) and the fish started to have a film develope over his eyes and he appeared to have trouble seeing. The local pet store recommended increasing the salt content of my already brackish tank.
 
After doing this the fishes health improved and the film went away on his eyes. I am releived to hear the STF are not brachish, but confused when compaing this to my past experience. Do you have any insight into this issue? Thanks PS. I am interested in purchasing a small STF in the future, do you have a steady supply or are they hit and miss? I've had a lot of trouble locating them in the past.

Reply. Hello John, your experience with your STF makes sense to me. Aquarium Salt is a very good general treatment for infections.

A particular antibiotic effects only a small percentage of the bacteria that are present, but salt effects most freshwater bacteria.

In fact almost all freshwater bacteria are destroyed by a rapid increase in salinity.

You added salt to the water in your aquarium, and the resulting rapid increase in the salinity of the water destroyed the bacteria growing on your fish's eye.

Click here for more information about using Aquarium Salt to treat infections on fish.

All STF are caught in wild, and none of them are raised by fish farmers, so importing them is hit-and-miss, but we often have them.
