Tank is a 29 gallon...2 Goldfish (3 years old).
Presently, I'm running an Emperor 280, but because one of the fish appears to have ich and possibly tail rot, I purchased an Emperor 400, which has 2 Bio-Wheels.
I need to get their water cleaned up...water changes aren't cutting it.
I've been performing 50% water changes every 3 or 4 days, adding aquarium salt and StressZyme.
I've been re-reading every post on this forum...there's some fairly contradicting advice here.
Someone said to stop using StressZyme...that over-conditioning of the water is not good.
So...I've discontinued using it for a while.
FWIW: I have well water, not municipal water.
My question is...the newer, larger filtration system has 2 bio-wheels. Can I simply begin running it with no ill effects on my fish, if I switch out one of the new Bio-Wheels with the 'seasoned' wheel from the smaller system?
Because I'm confused about how to treat Fussy for ich & tail rot, I now have on hand both Mardel Maracyn AND Ick Clear Tank Buddies. I haven't used either yet. I'm just hoping the larger filter and the water changes accompanied by salt treatments will help him.
Below are a couple of pics...what do you folks think?
Healing tail rot?
