ang kaibahan lang po eh yung pump eh pahigop imbis na palabas....
ok naman po yung panala nya, araw-araw ko po pinipiga yung foam every time i change water para maalis agad yung dumi also to avoid clogging....
yung canopy (yun nga ba tawag dun? lol) i already painted black narin po yung inside (kasi black lang yung available na paint lol)
hanggat maaari po kasi ayaw kong gumastos if there is alternative naman... kung mapapansin nyo po puro D.I.Y. gamit ko lol....
Hello eto nanaman ako... I think my fish is sick. The blood vessels on his fins are very red and the base of his fins/tail looks really pink. He looks lethargic. He just sits in one corner of his tank. He's still eating which is good pero he just sits there.
I noticed this a week ago and i thought that he was just sleeping more because it's winter and there's less light. I changed the 30% of the water on the Sunday. He's became a bit more active pero by Friday, he's the same. So I did another 30% change. Last night napansin ko mas malaki na yun splotch of red sa fin nya and i did another 20% change.
What do you think is wrong? I will post a photo later. I might also show it to my local shop to see if i need medication.
he's the only fish in that tank. I'm going to the pet shop tomorrow. If he's sick i really feel bad.
here are the photos:
possibly septicemia? he's swimming around at the moment. pero fins are still quite red.

@slice: try mo search sa net yun mypalhs.com, marami dun mga taong me experience sa goldfish..
Thanks. I will ask din there.
I went to the pet shop today. The girl gave me tri sulfa and made me buy that gravel vaccuum cleaner that rage mentioned. She gave me a full lecture on how to take care of the fish and how to clean the tank.
Dapat talaga namimili ng binibilhan ng fish. Kasi yung binilhan ko before nagmamadali lang makapag benta.
minsan sa pinanggalingang tubig din iyon. tapos maihahalo agad sa tank water mo sa bahay without proper acclimation. kaya nagkaka-hawa hawa ang isda.
tip na rin kung bibili ng bagong fish, before ilagay sa community tank mo sa bahay... how to quarantine:
1. kumuha ng balde, punuin halfway ng tubig mula sa gripo.
2. ilagay si new fish sa isang garapon (depende sa fish size) with plastic bag water.
3. itubog ang garapon sa gitna ng balde for 15 mins, make sure na mas mataas yung garapon sa level ng tubig sa balde. the idea is pagpantayin yung temperature ng both types of water... iwas shock sa isda.
4. itapon ang 30% ng garapon water, salinan ng tubig from balde para mapuno muli ang garapon. the idea is to acclimate the fish with new water. leave for 5 mins.
5. do step 4 again, this time at 50%. leave for 5 mins.
6. then lagyan ng methylene blue yung garapon water as indicated sa label. leave fish there for 3 hours or half a day.
when joining new fish to community tank, just do steps 4 and 5 using tank water, or until halos malabo na yung pagka-blue ng water sa garapon. then isalin na ang isda sa tank.
this is what i normally do. it may or may not work for you, kayo na bahala.
I meant walang instruction whatsoever. We initially got a fishbowl with our fish and was told it will be enough for 2 orandas. Only to find out later on that 2 orandas need at least 30 gallons of water double filtration etc.
I accept that as a buyer, i have the responsibility to do research etc pero pag sinabi sa iyo sa fish shop that this set up will be ok, you would think you can rely o that.
This new shop that i go to, i tried buyig another fish and the person refused to sell me a fish kasi nga daw my tank is too small.
Anyway, just ranting and sharing what i learned since i adopted Ponyo. I'll update you guys kung ano mangyari. Hopefully he will be fine.
@slice: atleast ngayon narerealize mo na rin yan, dati ganyan din ako nun baguhan pa.. yun pag research yan yung exciting sa hobby. yung ibang di nakakaintindi, sinasabi madali lang mag alaga ng isda.. pero para sa akin, sa simula pa lang e mahirap na.. it involves a lot of planning.. minsan kahit gusto mo yun particular na isda e di pwede for some reasons like wala ka pwesto, bawal sa pinas, pagagalitan ka ng misis mo kasi masyadong malaki yun aquarium, malakas sa kuryente yun filter mo, etc..
Yep mahirap talaga mag alaga pero worth it naman.
Ponyo looks better. Fins are less red and he was swimming in his tank when i woke up. I will have to do a second dose on saturday but he's made progress. Thank God.
mag iistart ka ulet mag set up ng biological filter nyan.. since some medication can kill the beneficial bacteria in your tank.
This is my filter. I took out the carbon cartridge when I
Medicated. So i guess i just put it back in?
How often do you need to change the filter medium? The lady said the carbon cartridge needs to be changed every 6 weeks. There's a foam filter as well but she didn't say anything about changing it.
ngayon pagbumibili ako check ko na maigi... fins, fish lice, white spot, aggressiveness, alertness, breathing pattern.... at minsan naiinis na yung tendera sa tagal ko pumili tapos pag hinde ko type hindi naman pala bibili... hahaha....
can you post the full view of your tank pls...
habang ginagamot mo yun isda mo, dapat walang activated carbon kasi iaadsorb nya yun medication mo.. after ng treatment, (pag magaling na yun isda mo) kadalasan nilalagyan ng activated carbon para i-adsorb nya yun natitirang gamot sa aquarium.
yun changing ng filter media, yun activated carbon kasi, ginagawa ko after 2 months, hinuhugasan ko mabuti, tapos binababad ko sa araw e ng 1 day, tapos ibabalik ko lang ulet.
yun foam filter, yun iba binabanlawan ng tubig mula sa aquarium para matanggal yun dumi.. tapos babalik lang nila.. ginagawa yun para di mamatay yun beneficial bacteria (BB) sa foam, kasi kung tap water, me chlorine, mamatay yun BB..
personally, pag maduming madumi na yun foam ko, tinatapon ko na kaagad e.. kasi naglalagay ako ng ceramic rings/crushed coral/gravel as additional filter media, which serves as home for BB.. kahit na itapon ko meron pa ako colony ng BB.
kung nagtreat ako ng buong aquarium, linis lahat yun, tapon yun foam, bilad sa araw yun ibang filter media, 100% water change.
i'm taking care of bettas and some died because they started developing white fungus which are coming out of their mouths.
q: any medication for that?
