Hi All;
Extremely new to this forum... Didnt know there are so many experts here on goldfishes...
I have a 3 feet tank. read in previous posts that a sucker will not clean up your tank.
My walls of the tank is coated with a layer of slime, not algae... how do i go about removing that? it blurs the tank...

And, if i put stones/ pebbles (gravel) in the tank, how big the size of gravel I should have? I refer small stomes that can let the fish gup into their mouth, and spit out... is it advisable?.. as i read in previous threads that its not wise as it chokes and result in death of fish... But small pebbles at the base (abt half inch of height) looks good.

And how do we clean the poos trapped between the gravel? mine is a overhead filter...
Need advise,.. thanks in advance..>>>

Sucker will not eat shit,but helps somewhat to clean your tank.A single pleco can easily keep a 4 ft tank free of algae.I dont know what you meant by slime on your tank,but getting a magnetic cleaner should do the job.

Advisable not to have any gravels,whether big or small.Difficult to clean, maintain and a breeding ground for parasites.Go for bare tank.

Thats why you should go for a bare tank.Plenty of examples here:

Hi cpiw2002;
You are really helpful.
Had not bought any gravel/ stones till date.

I currently have
a Overhead filter.
15 GFs. (ranchus/ lionhead.. ryuukin etc)
2 airstones.
Water change 50% every 2 days.

Overhead filter
A type which it will create strong current in water. Had used a stopper to block the hole of current blowing out from.

Problem:
Goldfishes keep dying. 2 weeks back, dead a black butterfly tail, without any reasons. Last nite, another same breed dead, without reasons as well.

What could be the reason?
I didnt monitor any PH/ nitrate/ nitrite or whatsoever. Is is necessary?
Sorry, I am quite new in GFs.
If monitoring of PH/ nitrate/ nitrite/ ammonia.. or whatever that I may need to monitor, please kindly advise me how?

Thanks

Hi puppies,

I had just replied to another forumer who is also using a 3ft tank and most of your queries can be found there.

http://www.RafflesGold.com/forums/index.ph...T&f=5&t=2101&s=

The most obvious problem is your stock level of 15 goldfish in a 3 ft tank.Not more than 3 please.I think you just broke the record of have the most crowded tank.Your new tank has not cycled,the pH had crashed and ammonia had risen dramatically.

Spend some time reading the old threads for all the info,and also on fish quarantine.

Hi Desireless;
I have read many of your threads and reples ...
I knew you are very well versed in the knowledge of Ammonia and pH controls.

1) How to test pH? (understand that its a pen like equipment?)
2) How to test ammonia? (no idea)


What equipments and cost how much?
And i uses Overhead Filter. Wat is Bio-filer? does it mean that only Bio filter needs to be water buffered?

For pH yes, best to buy a Test Pen. Result is almost instant. I have not been using it for a very long time, ever since I started buffering my water. But it is still good to have one handy. It is quite ex... about $40 for a cheap one. But it is worthy of the money spent.

For Ammonia, you can buy a test kit or you can alternatively go for the cartoonic "Ammonia Alert" by Seachem. About $8.90 from Darwin, $9 from PetMart. But again, once your tank is cycled, there is hardly any need for this because it will always be yellow(safe) colour.

Puppies,
you need to read and read and read and read this forum, and FAST!!! all your questions are standard questions which answers can be found very easily in this forum.
To make your life easier here is your reading list:(search on the following topic)
1. Ammonia!!
2. Nitrites
3. Nitrates
4. PH

Read them in that particular order and biofiltration is a process that involves number 1-3

Ya,not surprising.
For my case a 2 inch pleco is doing the job for my 7 footer.Problem is most of them when they grow larger tends to bully the goldfishes so when that happens I just discard them and replace with a new smaller one. tongue.gif

fishes all grasping for air on sunday and monday, but tot they are hungry.
similar to last time when i was away for 3 days. the only same action i did was dose with 30 drops of genesis........in abt 100 litres of water.
and in green water.

my immediate action save 2 fishes but one died.

could it be overdose of genesis??

Quite unlikely Genesis leh... I usually use one drop of Genesis per litre --> Kiasu. So far my fishes still ok.

When you see your fishes gasping for air, there's somethng quite wrong with the water. Did you have a pH crash? Got buffer or not?

Yo Puppies, have a read on the Nitrogen Cycle here:
http://puffernet.tripod.com/nitrogencycle.html
http://faq.thekrib.com/begin-cycling.html

To put in simple terms, a cycled tank should be able to do this:

Ammonia (from fish) --> Nitrites --> Nitrates

The arrows represent the work of the Beneficial Bacteria (BB). 1st arrow is the Nitrosomonas Bacteria that converts ammonia to Nitrites. 2nd arrow is Nitrobacter Bacteria converting Nitrites to Nitrates. The end product of the Nitrogen cycle is always Nitrates.

Not so simple.I have not used this Ocean Free thing,but I think these are zeolites.A waste of money,actually.They will adsorb ammonia,but once their capacity is reached it will no longer function,and you have to re-charge them.Worse,if you add salt to your tank as advised by many LFS owners,the ammonia will be leached back out!
I have 5kg of good quality zeolites sitting in my store room,give away also nobody wants.

I think you should not try to rush things and anyhow listen and anyhow buy things,be patient and read and understand more.You will get confused taking advise from everywhere especially LFS owners.

For your present setup shown it is advisable that you:
remove the gravels

You MUST:
Reduce the no. of fish

All you need is:
1)anti chlorine/chloramine for use during water change
2)pH buffers eg baking soda
3)maybe some ceramic or sinster glass for cultivating beneficial bacteria(place them in the OHF)


That all.Do that first then slowly read thru the topics.You will understand later.

Thanks.
for 1) Anti-Chrorine/ Anti Chromaine... think I ill get a bottle of Interpret ? (forgotten the number) I saw it in the shop just now. Hope thats ok...
for 2) Where to get baking soda? Provision shops? What must I tell them? How do they look like? and do the Baking Soda colors the Water? When must I use them?
for 3) Ceramics? You mean those cylindical white little tunnels? But I just bought the above,,, can i use this for a few months first? Or i should throw away this?

Oops,I forgot.
pH test pen.Monitor the pH levels for the first few weeks and once you get the hang of it and know the pH levels before and after water change you can do without it.

Very easy to understand one.. You no need to know much about the indiviudual terms in the Nitrogen Cycle. Just know how the overall nitrogen cycle works. The important thing is how to manage your tank to be ideal for your fishes. Your tank is just too over-stocked.

Hi ;
According to advice;
1) I had a Anti chlorine and chromaine when i start off this hobby.
2) Bought the Round cylindrical ceramics and put in my OHF already.

Mext issue: pH!
Understand that pH had got nothing to do with the ammonia/ nitrire/ nitrate cycles (correct me if i am wrong)... but how do i know my pH is correct and stable? Can I just buy something to let me control the pH rather than getting a test kit?

Sodium Bicarbonate is Baking Soda. It is different from baking powder.
IPB Image

It creates a "pH buffer" in your water... meaning it "locks your pH" so that the pH do not swing so easily

cpiw... rather than locking your pH, coral chips and shells brings your pH up. So be careful about that.
Puppies
Loicks pH?
then i must ensure my pH is at a suitable reading before locking right?
If not suitable, then need to adjust rite?
So how to adjust since its locked?

I saw some medicines in aquarium shops...got <<pH UP>> and <<pH Down>>
Do i have to buy both types?
pengsan....

How do you guys do to maintain pH?
Help please... I am knocking off at 1730hrs to buy whatever you guys recommend and go home and pour...

Roger.
I cant confirm,but there is a difference using coral chips and oyster shell.
Coral chips will continuosly raise the pH over time to level 8 or 9 if you do not perform water changes.
Oyster shells on the other hand is said to have a saturation point of about pH 7.5; that means if the pH is higher than that the shells will not dissolve further to bring up the pH.
I have one compartment coral chips and 2 compartment oyster shells.My purpose is not to bring up the pH but rather prevent the pH from dropping.I guess with 80% weekly water changes these items will have insufficient time to raise pH to very high levels.
My method is not a recommended one for most people,as you need lots of space to house the shells.
From my observations when I measure the pH levels weekly previously (only do it once in a blue moon now),the pH level will increase by 0.2 or 0.3 over a period of 1 week.
So suppose my tap water is 7.5 the pH will be about 7.8 before I perform the next water change.

No need, no need!!
All that you need is already mentioned by Desireless an myself earlier.
Our tap water ranges from pH 7 to 8,suitable for goldfish.Just go get the baking soda to buffer the water,thats all.

Ok, Thanks.
So I will be getting from Sembawang later... found their website and located their locations in singapore.

So when do I need to pour in the Baking Soda? Every day? Every water change?
or how frequent?

And wats the amount to put for a 3 feet tank?

Do you have to go through all these "word scruntinizing"?

The word "lock" is easy to understand. Especially for a newbie. You can throw in all the scary scientic terms for all you want and guess what strange ways some newbies will understand them as?
