wipeout

Postby pandacory » Thu May 30, 2013 8:50 pm

I have had to dismantle my tropical tank, all except the 4 oto's and the female apisto died of white spot on the weekend.I took the tank apart was to get all the dead fish out. The oto's don't seem to be effected by it, but the apisto has a few grains on her. but she seems to be holding on.

Oh dear. Not good news. Some fish are hardier than others. Fingers crossed for the survivors.
Do you know what set off the white spot?

I have an idea what caused it Caryl. I read a post on here a few weeks ago about 1 of the members had a piece of bogwood that grew a white furry algea. I had 1 that did the same thing and like him I cleaned a couple of times but it kept coming back. He had an outbreak of white spot so he got rid of the wood and I have done the same. This particular piece of wood didn't sink when put in the tank at 1st, it took a couple of hours. I put that down to it drying out to much and air got in it. Maybe in hind sight it was something more malicous, we will never know for sure.

Well good news is, the female Apisto survived the outbreak. She is doing fine and slowly getting stronger. She became clear of spots a couple of weeks ago. I kept the meds up for a further week, to ensure the pests had been eradicated. She has got a new set of tank mates to go in with her tomorrow. They have been in quarantine for just over a week. 6 lemon tetra and 6 silvertip tetra. End of the month I will get another pair of Apisto's to go with her.
Bad news is I lost 1 of my 4 oto's, but to be honest I am surprised I kept any of them, as they are such a weak fragile fish.

Fingers crossed the new ones settle in well and the problem has been resolved. Pics are required once they are in :wink:

Thankyou Caryl. I intend on getting another pair of apisto's. Also building a couple of caves in the back corners. I have to restock my Marine tank 1st though.

Thanks Sparky. Not finished yet but getting there. Neet the only thing I use for the plants is liquid ferts and root tablets and any natural food from the fish and nitrate/ phosphates in the water. I thought of Co2, but decided it didn't need it, as the plants are growing well without it.

Ady there are 2 type of anubias in the tank. The 1 on the left with the broader leaf is Anubias barteri Nana. The 1 on the right more slender leaf but pointier is anubias congensis.
