Can I use one of those reverse osmosis water filters to clean the tap water prior to putting it in the tank? I have heard some places sell osmosis water but if I could do the process myself it may be a good way to clean the water.
I shall change some of the water in the meantime using the Aqua Safe.
Well this morning the redness doesn't seem to have gotten worse. I added a new rock cave for him to hide in an the loach has repossessed it.
He is a the bottom but is the right way round and I also noticed that the water has gotten clear overnight. He was quite alert and immediately came up to the glass to see me when I came into the room. I will monitor him closely again today and change some of the water. As the syphon has still not arrived I will take it from the top of the tank unless.
I have got some parts together to assemble a water butt. Had been meaning to do it for rainwater to water plants with. Can I use rainwater in the tank without having to dechlorinate? I don't think the rain is too acidic here but can't say for sure without collecting some and testing it but at least it should be free from chlorine.
Also would Stresscoats ability to restore protective slime mean that it could also protect against fin rot?
The Stress Coat + has just arrived. Does anyone know if its okay to add it to the tank straight away considering that it already had Aqua Safe. I could do a partial water change say 20 liters and put double the dosage ie 5ml for 20L as it says "Double the dosage to replace slime coat and to repair damaged skin and fins." I have added a few tall plants as well so it could be a good chance to get this water up to scratch. New heater also arrived as well as ornaments. What a lucky day, I just hope its lucky for Poseidon as well!
Just wanted to get your opinions on "INTERPET - ANTI FUNGAL AND FINROT". Poseidon looks a bit redder today despite the fresh water and Stresscoat so I rushed out and got this medicine for him. It says it's harmless to fish and the guys in the shop said I can add it to the tank without quarantining him. Have not put it in yet until I can verify it's the best remedy. Thanks.
