Re: Amazon Puffer- OK behavior????

LOL, no I missed that! I was thinking this was a 10g office tank. Please consider keeping a shoal of them together in the larger tank. Just be aware you will have to catch each one for regular dentistry. Rarely, can they be fed enough snails to avoid this in captivity.

Re: F8 Extremely lethargic after water change and salinity increase

Then it very well may have been a shock to his system, if you did such a large WC when he was used to the water he was in. I often do 75-90% WC but as long as it's done weekly, it's fine. My tank water greatly resembles my tap water.

Re: Amazon Puffer- OK behavior????

Your tank isn't large enough for a 2nd puffer. Actually, not really large enough for an active singleton.

Re: F8 Extremely lethargic after water change and salinity increase

If you usually do 5% (50% weekly is recommended but in a tank that small, I'd have done them 3x/week or more), then 75% definitely would have been a shock to his system. But since you said this was days ago, I'm not too sure that is the specific issue. More so, you possible disturbed the biological ...

Re: Amazon Puffer- OK behavior????

Sorry but all new messages must be approved by me, because of spammers. It would be nice if I had help running this site but alas, it's just me... :roll:
I wasn't referring to the tank mates he has in there--they prefer to live with conspecifics.

Re: Gsp sik?

I don't think bio pellets are the problem. I would do multiple water changes for the next week.

[welcome]
Feed 1x/day, skipping 1 day/week. You have enough fish there for a 55g tank. I do hope you upgrade. Just crack open the clam & let them go at it! Clean up any uneaten pieces, after about 15 minutes.

Yeah, I wouldn't dose vodka, are you having algae issues? I developed a safer method of dosing Vitamin C, instead: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=13501

Re: F8 Extremely lethargic after water change and salinity increase

5g isn't nearly large enough for this species, 15-20 is recommended. Although, I don't believe this is causing his problem. Is it possible he swallowed air? Can he upright himself at all? No need to add extra bacteria "booster" to an already cycled tank. Especially if the tank is BW, as that bacteri...
