    Ich? Velvet? Flukes? - what is this?

    Did a fresh water dip for 5 min and if anything made it worse, before the dip you didn't see anything other than what looked like ich on the gills but after the dip there is all this stuff - can someone shed some light on what this is? These guys are in QT and the white dots just started to be...

    Fritz Turbo 900 and Nitrites

    I have two QT going and I put in Fritz Turbo 900 yesterday because my nitrites were a little high - it's a new QT and has fish in it, looks like it had not cycled 100% yet. Anyway, I put in the Turbo 900 and my nitrites shot through the roof, I know have 1.0 when I had .25 yesterday. I'm...

    Is this ich or something else?

    For anyone interested; .35 -.40 does great at killing ich, does not completely eradicate velvet. I was hoping not to have to do .5+ but looks like I don't have a choice. I've seen people having to treat to .7 which I think is too high and probably fatal for some fish. Seachem instructions of...

    Is this ich or something else?

    I don't think it's ich, doesn't look like it. You all may be right that it's velvet but man, it's been almost a month since the hermit intro...strange. But anything is possible. Treating with Cupramine daily until I get to .4-.5 - don't want to do it too abruptly so hopefully they'll make it...

    Is this ich or something else?

    Yeah, I'm not draining 500G or removing 400lbs of rock. It is what it is. The cupramine should take care of it. It's a fowlr system anyway and will never be anything else.

    Is this ich or something else?

    No new additions. Last addition was 3 weeks ago and it was a hermit crab, which whatever this is probably came along in the shell of the crab as the tank was fine before then. Given the timeline I don't think it's velvet, I think it's either ich or some bacteria infection but I decided to...

    I don't think it's velvet, they'd all be dead by now. Velvet would pretty much kill everything in 24-48 hours.

    Fish are eating well and they are no twitching or flashing or hitting against a rock, etc. So I'm not sure if it's ich or something else. If you look at his tail it looks like something else but I'm not sure?

    New Ecotech MP60 Issues

    Just received this yesterday. 24 hours later the dry side fell off (thank gosh I was hanging the wire) and the wet side wouldn't turn/spin by hand, hard as a rock. I just took the wet side apart following their utube video instructions and here is what I found - looks nothing like the video...

    Anti-vibration Pads for in-sumo use

    Thank you all. I went to bed bad and beyond, picked up a coupe of small silicone pads, cut them up, put them under the pump and under each corner of the skimmer cone and it is much better. It's silicone but it's red, I would think it wouldn't leach anything into the water?

    Sand clumping up...

    What's a good thin sand to use that won't leach anything into the water? The batch I have in there now was live sand but I don't want to buy any live sand as that will probably just end up crashing my tank, hear many nightmares due to dead bacteria in the sand, etc. Any particular brand of...
