      You know when you said your pleco died? Well there goes mine too. Found him about 10 minutes ago. I say 5 on the thread because at the time I posted that thread we did find him 5 minutes ago.

      Ooohhh my pleco seems to be sick, eating algea and wafers but something isn’t right on his or her belly. Yesterday he was out literally all day.

        I saw your post but don't know much about plecos, my one died. Hopefully someone else might know, or have you tried asking on one of the specialist fish forums?

        That's the difficulty I don't have space for a spare tank. I thought that neon was brave.

        Is there nowhere you could temporarily put a storage box etc, just for a week or two until the ich is sorted? You only need one plug socket (for a filter) since danios don't need a heater.

        Unless I shifted a few things of the chest of drawers at the end of my bed. There are plug sockets there at least one socket is free as there is also an extension with a few plugs in.

      Well that one guppy still has ich. You wouldn't think it. He's acting normal. My cousin came at weekend and wanted to see the fish she saw him and said why has that one got little white spots what are they so I said a pain the neck that's ich aka white spot. She asked what that was so I said a parasite. He will be called Lucky me thinks.

        Good that he is hanging in there, and that none of the others have got it. I assume you're still continuing with the meds?

        Meds will continue til I completely get rid of it so til I know the parasite is dead meds continue. Caught the zebra danios nipping guppies fins. So need to do something about that. I don't have space for another tank.

      Spotty you little devil. Thought he was dead but he moved. I doubt he'll last the night though sadly. Hang on if you can little one I'm trying to get rid of ich.

      My fish tank seems to hate me.

        I did exactly as I was advised on here. First thing I do is go and check the water.

        I don't know if this is an option for you but, when we kept tropical fish and bred guppies, we could take a sample of the tank water to our local Aquatics shop and they would test it and make any recommendations they thought were wise.

        I have a testing kit @Sweety but might try that.

      One dead guppy the runt aka the smallest one with no signs of illness and one guppy with a case of ich/white spot so checked the water quality again even though it was fine recently and everything fine except the ph, far too high so that is currently being sorted.

        Hi Danielle, I just replied to your thread about the ich. Sorry you lost a guppy. What is the pH reading?

      Followed all your advice. Thought one of the new guys was dying last night, he was lay at the bottom but today he is very active.

        Have you done tests for ammonia and nitrite? That's the first thing I do when there's any hint of a suspected problem, just to rule out any water quality issues. If anything is irritating the fish it can cause them to dart around, so being active doesn't necessarily mean all is well - it's best to test just to be on the safe side :)

        Sure have and all fine thankfully. Got a new testing kit. Everything is colour coded so to speak on this one which for me is better. Better safe than sorry. This is the same guppy we thought wasn't going to survive his first week. At this rate he will be called Lucky.

      The new fish seem to be doing well so far, Alvin when I get their food is the first to appear, the others including the 2 girls when I lift the smaller lid they go and hide til tonight actually I did it quietly and they stayed near me. So doing that quietly now. Forgot how fast zebra danios are. The 6 of them tend to stick together which I know they like to live in schools. The girls stick together too.

      Just wanted to say thank you for all your help with setting up my fish tank. It is now fully stocked and I'm loving it. Without your advice and suggestions I don't believe the tank would be half as good as it is, I have learnt loads over the last few weeks and will no doubt have more questions in the future for you. Thanks again

        No worries. It's an addictive hobby isn't it! I knew nothing about fish a couple of years ago, but have learnt so much from here and other forums :)

      I love your avatar! My two 4 and a half month old kittens are obsessed with my tanks and do that as well haha :-D thanks again for your help with my balloon mollies xx

        No worries, sorry I couldn't help more with the mollies. Yes Pebbles (my cat) loves my two tanks! I bet your kittens are really cute when they do that :-)

      Hey Naomi. You recently welcomed me to the forum and also mentioned if I had to have a kitten and if perhaps I could think about getting a cat and from cats protection or blue cross. Well you got me thinking a lot and as you quite rightly said the kittens may not know when to retract their claws being so young and an older cat used to around children wold be a lot more suitable.. Well I've been in touch with cats protection and left my details for a call back and hopefully they can visit me and get the ball rolling for me to adopt a cat. Sorry I'm waffling on a bit but I wanted to say a huge thanks for making me think straight. Definitely interested in adopting an older cat now and may look at adopting a kitten when my children are older.big thanks again Naomi.. MWAAH
