Re: Puffer seem sick

Good news! Scardy and his 2 molly buddies are doing great! Seem to be 100% back to normal. Just waiting for their normal tank to finish cycling then I can put them back. For plants and having the aragonite sand, do I just get some of the little plastic pots to plant them? Or will they root into the ...

Re: Puffer seem sick

Quarantine and the metroplex/focus seem to be working. My GSP and 2 mollies seem to be almost back to normal. Once their tank has cycled, they should be at full strength. Scardy, my GSP, has even started coming out to say hi every time we go near him.

Re: Puffer seem sick

My puff and molly are in quarantine, I have started treating them with seachem metroplex and focus. I have taken out the gravel substrate in their normal tank and added bio-active nature's ocean argonite sand. Will be using the method in the link to cycle it and hopefully all will be well for me to ...

Re: Puffer seem sick

I have my last puffer and 2 mollies in a quarantine tank. Hoping to do a clean and fresh cycle on their tank to see if I can save them. So far, I lost 2 puffers, 1 molly and all my nerite snails. I am changing substrate to natures ocean sand. Hoping that helps.

Re: Puffer seem sick

I am using aquarium gravel. I don't stir it all up, but I clean around around and under decor.

I just lost a Molly. I have no idea what else to do. My puffers are hiding and not wanting to eat. And they are sunken in around their front fins. I am afraid I am going to lose them all...

Re: Puffer seem sick

Yes. Salinity is 1.014.

Update: I lost 1 puffer, the smallest, and all but 1 snail. Mollies are acting like nothing is wrong. I have been doing daily water changes and nitrates are down to about 30, will keep doing them.

Re: Puffer seem sick

I did a 30% water change 2 days ago and a 30% last night. They seem more sick now that I have done water changes. I am very worried about them. I know they are very sensitive fish. If I have had them for 6 months, would I have known if they had parasites or could they have gotten them from the ghost...
