saweverything Our gold fishes react the same way, also when i had neon tetras parang nahihilo and usually it's because of water change. And as with my experience, eventually they die.

anzenxxii nakupow. na-overdose ata ng gamot yung BGK mo. sensitive sa mga gamot ang scaleless fish like BGK. normally enough na ang salt and increased temp of 30-32C for ich eh. WC immediately, increase water temp to 30-32 if may ich pa, then provide proper aeration.
malamang po sa overdose ng medications rin kinamatayan ng dating BGK mo sir. please note po sir na lahat ng scaleless fish ay sensitive to any medication.

dark_knights_99 nasabi na nya lahat ng info.
word of advice nalang, kapag may isda ka na scaless dapat iwas ka sa paglagay ng mga gamot coz nakakasunog ng balat ng isda yun (knife fish, lungfishes stc.) best was to treat scaless fish is put salt and use heater in your tank.

Marcel Actually. Hindi gamot yung StressOut eh. Parang vitamins lang siya. Nakasulat sa bottle promotes healing of wounds. Linagay ko na nga half-dosage nung nakaindicate sa bottle eh. Meron na ho ba nakatry sa inyo nitong StressOut ng Angel Drops on a Black Ghost?

OMGFISH Make sure u check your amonia, nitrate, ph level, etc. Also how much do you feed him and the stress out I believe is the trickit. Never trust anything in your tank unless if it is the fish, water, conditioner, food, and some small decorations. Don't like really big decorations as they are hard to clean. Sometimes hurt the fish. And also has chemical damage in ur tank. Good luck though. Also suggest to take the stress out stuff out. If u want him to calm down put him in a dark room for a while. Or the tank without the light itself. Good luck

Bardledoo taken from some page i read about the black ghost.
Owners should be careful when medicating their fish tanks with Black Ghost Knife Fish inside. Since the fish are scaleless, they react differently to medication than fish with scales. They are more sensitive, so the doses of medication should be halved as to not endanger the Black Ghost Knife Fish.

Bardledoo maybe it would have been bether to djust raise the temperature to get ridd of ich, i have gotten ridd of ich by doing that on other fish earlyer, runned 48 hours so the ich died, then i set temperature back to normal and within a week all ich is gone, it would be some left on fish after 48 hours also probably but it will be dead and fall off within a week.
probably not safe to raise temperature eather but maybe bether on this fish than the medicin.

Marcel Hi. StressOut is like a vitamin solution. I've already made 2 50% water changes 8 hours apart. To lessen the StressOut on the water. Still moving about though. I really hope he survives this. I worked too hard to rid him of the ich, just to be killed by some bad vitamin product in the recovery process.

teddscau It could be the StressOut, but he might have got a secondary infection. He could have a number of problems. Flukes, velvet, etc. Maybe you should dim the lights in the tank to help calm him down. I'd like to get one of those cute ghost knives but I have too many tanks. By the way, do you feed him live foods? It's risky feeding with those. It's best to feed frozen, freeze-dried, and pelleted foods to decrease the risk of disease. Do you have a good hiding place for him? He might be outgrowing it or something.

Marcel Hi Ted. Yeah, that's possible. I did feed him live blood worms before the Ich breakout. But the Ich he got from a new fish I put into the tank. I was so confident about the fish store I bought it from (which I bought most of my fishes all my life without any problems) I forgot to isolate them first.
But the mebendazole and metronidazole solution also cures parasites, so I'm guessing the tank is free of these diseases. And also the other fishes don't have any problems.
Yup, he still does have a lot of hiding place, and when I turned off all the lights, the behavior didn't change.

My name is ANTONIO MAGNO CARRANZA JR. I am the blogger behind www.pusangkalye.net
My blog covers travel, events and photography but I categorized it in topblogs.ph
as a photoblog as I see it as the center of my expression for blogging.
I have been blogging since 2008 but I haven't started photography on dslr level
until April last year. That makes me a newbie in both. What I have is the
love for photography which compliments my blogging. I am
sure most of you here are the same.
I am a member of several facebook groups for bloggers like
Pinoy Travel Bloggers and United-Bloggers and so I thought of creating a group
exclusively for Philippine photobloggers. I hope that it could serve as a venue for
us to share our ideas and skills in both blogging and photography.
It doesn't matter if you own a tumblr or blogspot or wordpress account as
long as you are a photoblogger.
Compared to other categories in topblogs, our group is relatively small. Through this
group I hope we could transcend boundaries and eventually encourage others to start
their photoblog as well. It is my hope then that you join us.
if you are interested, please find me in facebook and leave
a simple message with your
blog url so that I can include you.
Looking forward to meeting you guys.
PS: ito yung link ng group.
and here's my fb link
kakagawa ko palang group so we are still gathering members.D:
