Re: [AquaticLife] Rock work

 

Hi Donna

We're stuck between Mbuna and Peacocks. Seems the Peacocks are less aggressive but take longer to color. Soooo. I'm open for suggestions. I really don't want problem children.
What kind of stocking ratio for a 55 gal 4' tank

Thanks again
Harry

I keep Malawi, Tanganyikans and Victorians. Which Africans will you keep as rock requirements differ?

I will probably start the rock work for the cichlid tank next. I bought a selection of small rocks to start with.

I bought 2 bags of sand but it was so dirty I was afraid to use it so I've got "Cichlid sand" coming.

I've seen people use the plastic deflector grate used in recessed light fixtures in the bottom of the tank to protect the glass and distribute the weight. Is this advisable or is it unnecessary ? Seems if Cichlids like to dig that wouldn't be a good idea.

Never have done any rock work other then a couple of rocks in a tank because I liked the looks of them.

Thanks for any help

Harry

P.S. ,

Thanks for the help on the quarantine tank Donna

Re: [AquaticLife] 29 gallon

 

Hi Andy,

  I noticed that the water test readings you posted yesterday gave zero for NO3 & the same today. If you have living creatures in a tank then there will always be some NO3 reading because it is organic waste. Could it be that you are using an out of date test kit & are you leaving it 10 minutes before reading the results?

They also need a good shake before use. Once you have added 10 drops of bottle 1 then give bottle 2 a good shake for half a minute before adding 10 drops to the tube. Then give the tube a good shake for a minute or more & then let it stand for 10 minutes. Before reading it give it another shake.

Re: [AquaticLife] Quarantine Tank

 

Thats what I was thinking Ray. I think I'll leave it running and keep it cycled in case I need it in a hurry. I have it set up away from the other tanks and I'll monitor its progress.

Thanks again Ray

Hi Harry,
 
I can't be positive as I don't know these hobbyists' intentions who keep their quarantine tanks dry up until the time they need them.  But as those tanks wouldn't be cycled, I feel that your keeping the tank cycled is the best way to go.  My take on the people who keep a dry quarantine tank is that they may not want the extra work of keeping this tank cycled with adding bottled ammonia every day as they may need to do so for an indefinite/unknown period of time -- like 6 months, or 9 months or . . .
 
No, I don't pre-treat new fish for any possible ailment they may be carrying, although adding some salt (about 3 tsp. per gallon on average, depending on the species -- and progressively, as 1 tsp. per day over a 3 day period) certainly can't hurt and can only be a benefit.  The exceptions to this would be Bettas and any scale-less fishes such as Catfish and Mormorids (Elephant-Nose, etc.).  Many fishes can tolerate more salt, but you'd need to find out first if those you're quarantining would be comfortable with more.  At the end of the quarantine period, the salt must be reduced just as gradually as when it was added, by first making a 1/3 PWC the first day, then a 50% PWC the 2nd day and finally a 75% PWC on the 3rd day -- if adding 3 total teaspoons of salt at the beginning.  Much less salt than this and it really doesn't do much good against any diseases that would ordinarily be effected by salt.  Keep in mind though, that when using enough salt to affect disease bacteria, it may affect the nitrogen-fixing bacteria similarly.  Keep in mind too, that there are many pathogens which wouldn't be affected only by salt, although it would help with those issues that are -- but possibly at the expense of affecting the cycle too.

Morning Ray
I am setting up a quarantine tank with its own separate set of of equipment, net water changing hoses and what not.
Back when I was raising  Koi I was a stickler for quarantining  new fish but got lax with the indoor fish, never again.

I always had a 500 gallon tank going for new koi or ones the need some extra care.
I've read on a Cichlid forum or two the people don't keep hospital / quarantine tanks going, they keep them dry until right before they need them, which seems counterproductive to me. I have mine cycling right now with a ammonia cycle going. Am I think wrong?

Do you do any prophylactic treatment to new fish. I read using salt is best and not using salt is the best way. As usual on the internet there is only one way to do something but its 25 completely different ways .

Thanks Harry
