Re: internal parasite for l46

I tend not to mix meds. While some may be fine together, others may not. As a rule I do not want to use two different medications to treat the same problem at the same time. I will use the one that is best suited to the situation. This may be as simple as if the med can be fed it if has to go in the...

Re: internal parasite for l46

Seachem Paraguard is for external parasites. PraziPro may help as it works on some internal parasites. Prazi Gold could also help. Metrodinazole would be best if you can find it. Feeding it works best so if the fish are not eating, I would go with one of the other two above. In the states I can find...

Re: internal parasite for l46

Its is hard to give a good answer without more information. For one, what medications can be found varies from country to country. Because the is no location information supplied by ystan, it is impossible to suggest a med. Next, a bit more information would be helpful. I have a variety of medicatio...

Re: Panta Nouri Carnivore

I have not seen this food in the states. Since the site is not in English I cannot read it unless i run each page trough Google Translate.. That said, I have a hard time believing the claim that only things a fish encounters in its natural habitat are used. The only way this could be true is if ther...

Re: Belo Monte Dam

Brazil just took steps via CITES to make it harder for zebra plecos to cross borders. This includes those tank raised. Because Brazil bans the exports of zebras, they are permitted to request that they be added CITES Appendix III. Basically, what this does is to requires all signatories to the the C...

Re: Belo Monte Dam

Did anybody really think it would not go this way? Brazil may be one of the most corrupt nations in the eastern hemisphere.

Re: First spawn

If you can do so w/o damaging the bigger one, yes. One thing to realize here is that there are any number of reasons an egg or eggs may not be viable. While we may not see this sort of thing, the dad knows. His jub is the keep the eggs aerated and to remove unviable ones so they do not cause harm to...

Re: First spawn

First, congrats on the spawn. it should be the first of more. There are no rules for this stuff. Different breeders use different approaches. basically we use what works for us. First spawns often do not work out well as the dad is so new. The eggs may be out because the dad knows it is bad and inte...

Re: Looking for zebs

I hate to say it, but fish stores are usually the worst place to buy zebras. Their mark-up is nuts. Zerbas are pretty easy to find from breeders in the states. If you have $450 and shipping their are a pair on AquaBid right now. I do not use Aquabid for personal reasons. I contacted the seller and t...

Re: all but 3 fish died overnight during a storm.

Try loosing 24 zebras 2 inches or more overnight. Then try not having the least clue what caused it.

But things like that, after I get over the initial upset, just make me want to try again but even moreso than before. At least I have well water so I never need to dechlor.

Re: Hi from Scotland

Welcome to the site and the wonderful world of zebras. As to the fighting, this will only happen in relation to spawning. Male plecos are territorial. So in a tank with multiple fish there will be a process of working out a pecking order to see who gets to claim the best cave. Females will also work...

Re: 10 x 3 year old zebs

When forced to do best guess I hope for the fish to be as old as possible. I want to be able to see odontile growth or the lack of any or much. I will also look at head shape. However, the origin of the fish is also something I would use to influence my decision. In the wild males are collected in a...
