THANK YOU SOO MUCH FOR TELLING ME TO CHANGE THE TEMPERATURE BACK TO 26DEGREES CELCEOUS 3 HOURS LATER BLAZER SWAM AROUND :') IT WAS LIKE A MIRACLE <3
thank you sooooo much
AND THANK YOU SOOO MUCH EVERYONE <3
i will really take extra good care of blazer now,i've totally learned my lesson of not being EVEN MORE observant of my fish when he was acting slightly less active,
he's finally showing signs of him getting better :)
okies so i'll add 1 more ml of the med tommrow and do the treatment for 2-4 more days to make sure the ick is clearly gone
(its like an every OTHER day medicion thing so yah)
IS THERE ANY THING I HAVE OR CAN ADD TO WATER OR DO TO ENSURE HIS HEALTH??
i do observe him alot and play with im in the morning n right wheni come home from school at around 4 pm and for about half horu to over an hour durring his dinner time.
THIS IS WHAT I DID BEFORE HE WAS SICK i know i have to make adjustments n such so plz correct me and tell me what to add or take out from his daily.weekly routine
~3 pellets in morning 3 pellets at night this is the food
(and probably not that important but his breakfast time is at 7:45-8:15am ish but it might be delayed by and hour or 2 on weekends because i sleep in and dinner time is 9pm something daily)
~i play and "observe" him daily during his breakfast,dinner and when i pass by him i get distracted n play or just stare at him :) and by play i mean I've actually taught him some tricks,like when i clap my hands and move my finger in circles he swims in a diving circle like movement.and another trick is when i shake my head he imitates me too and moves his head left and right
~i do 100% water changes every Saturday (I'M PRETTY SURE THIS IS WRONG NOW...SO WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?HOW OFTEN WHAT %? PLEASE TRY TO BE EXACT and go to like down to the very detailed details is possible)
~i add 1ml of API's stress coat to new water.which is about I'd say 1.5 gallons
here is link to the one I'm referring to and it has more info on it here in case u don't know much about it:
~the bowl/plastic cubed shape jar is about 1.5 gallon. heres are the dimension of his cube: 17cm x 19 cm
AND THAT'S THE WATER PART the part that i usually fill up his tank by
~and before (he got sick last Saturday) he only has a leaf hammock in his tank/container,that was absolutely it....
by the way,yes i know how people have cases of it's metal stem/rod rusting, I stopped using it last week when i saw it was getting brown,but about 3 days ago i email the company making it and they told me they had made new ones that has something added to the leaf that doesn't rust, and they're sending me a new one....eventually ~OH AND no heater or anything,the hammock was literally it, BUT NOW
there's a good homemade heater that's designed to be 27 degrees celceous (my dad knows his machinery and stuff so its safe) and it has no like pointy,sharp,edgy of anything like that that can harm my Betta's fins and bodyAND THAT'S BASICLY IT,MY WHOLE "PET FISH LIFE STORY"and I've gotten him on Monday September 5th,2011 (Labour Day)
~SO WHAT SHOULD I NORMALLY ADD TO HIS WATER DURRING WATER CHANGES?
~HOW OFTEN OF WATER CHANGES AND WHAT PERCENTAGE OF WATER CHANGE FOR MY SIZE OF TANK?
(dimensions again are 17cm by18/19 cm)can someone please also tell me if that'd be 1.5 gallon?more? less?
~what should i do if he's less active again?even the slightest bit less active? because i can tell pretty easily.and i do really take my time "observing him" and spend quite a bit of time with him daily
and the time spent is slit all throughout the day,when i wake up,after school,and my blazer's dinner time
~what should i do if there's also other changes that i notice about him?
by that i mean maybe some spots or something appearing on him.it might be an early sign of some illness or it could be natural but i want to be safe and know more of exactly what going on so the illness won't effect him that badly if I'd catch it earlier and treat him earlier
AND PLEASE ADD ANYTHING ELSE THAT I SHOULD KNOW
AGAIN THANK YOU SOO MUCH!!!!
