Just had another thought - have there been any roadworks near you? Every time the roads dug up around me,the tap water is appalling for about 4 days after.

If possible probably try to isolate the female to stop further spread but still keep the UV on in the main tank so it can hopefully kill the rest of the disease/infection left in the water.

ive just been doing larger water changes than normal and after a closer inspection of the glass i have alot of small ... what looks like minitures spiders crawling along the glass .... i think this maybe the problem ... but i dont know what they are .... ive looked at the fish and cant see them on the fish but tbh i did have to look very hard at the glass ..... can anyone identify what they are so i can get the right treatment to kill the little f***ers ive only got 1 bn still infected with the sores as ive unfortunatly lost a pair so far .... ive used myxazin which had no effect and now using protozin as advised by lfs ....

any help in this matter asap would be great as dont want to lose all 3 pairs .... all thats in the tank is 2 brown breding pairs and breeding trio of albino corys

PostSubject: unknown spiders in the bristlnose aquarium   Sun Apr 17, 2011 10:36 pm

did not know you had installed a Uv peter, how long you had it, where did you get it from and waht price.

I been thinking of one for my new set up...

hope you get those spiders identified, always nasty when you find some thing in the aquarium that should not be there..

regards

I would dose your tank with some aquilbrium salt, you can use it with other meds, it is a natural antiseptic so should help the sores.
I use it in my tanks all the time, at a dose of 0.1% ( 1 g for each litre of water) I've not had any issues since I've been doing it.

Although the BNs are freshwater fish the low dose/percentage won't hurt them at all.

Cheers Jon

Good Day - lol!

Peter - your tank is a well Planted, I was wondering if you were dosing any fertilizers/neutrients to the tank or do u have any fertilized soil in the tank , Excess dosing of nutrients can also be the case since this is affecting the skin of the pelco. Just a suggestion . do keep us posted .
