He has Ich probably from those damned diseased infested Petsmart goldfish...Poll: Pets you have?


I noticed it this morning, he is a red-bellied piranha but when his tank light clicked on this morning his belly was white (a symptom of the parasite) and he was swimming around listlessly bumping into things. Poor piranha, he had a tough life. After I brought him and his 7 brothers and sisters home 8 years ago his left eye was immediately eaten by one of his siblings. (earning him the nickname one-eyed-willy) I did not think he would survive but not only did he endure, he killed all the other piranha in the tank.

Fucking Petsmart...if they would just keep their feeder fish holding tanks clean this could be prevented. I plan to build a holding tank for the goldfish - this way if there is an outbreak it only kills them and I can dole out the feeders a few at a time.

the classic GIMP - you know, on a leash with a ball gag in the mouth

My Gimp is on a P3 with 256 Mb RAM by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #7 Thu Oct 27, 2005 at 09:21:31 AM EST
But maybe you need some sort of metaphorical leash and gag if it's on a newer system.

I killed my two prized clown loaches when I bought some new (ich-carriers) fish from PetSmart and didn't quarantine them first.

Live and learn bitches.

NOOO!!! by coryking (2.00 / 0) #6 Thu Oct 27, 2005 at 09:17:59 AM EST
You too?  I had to "put down" two clown's because of ich.  I had those guys for years and they were my favorite fish.  Dunno who was the carrier though.

Ich sucks...  Good luck to the author!

These guys were 3 or 4 years old and were getting to be a rather healthy size and were just beautiful until the ich did them in. It was my own fault though, I never should have added new fish to the tank. The whole thing made me sick.

Warmest regards,
