Hey All
I also can help with this in the cape breton area. I curretly run 4 tanks and have more than enough to help with. If anyone else is interested in helping with this project , drop your name on the list and we can make arangements to help people in each of our areas. just in case someone doesnt know what this is for, its to help start a cycle in a new aquarium or a new filter etc. this will help with the dreaded (NEW TANK SYNDROME)

I'm just barely out of the dreaded New Tank Syndrome (lol) but my little guppy tank is very well established, and if you give me more time, my cichlid tank will be too. It's not much, but I'll do what I can to help out too!

I usually always have lots of extra media (sponges/Floss) available.
Makes starting up a new tank a snap.

What should it say? Something like this?

"Starting a new aquarium? The Tropical Aquarium Club Of Nova Scotia can help! Skip the dreaded new tank syndrome with established sponges/filter media to start your tank off right.

Anything else I should say?

You know, I never posted it now that I'm reminded of it! Haha, I was waiting on confirmation on the wording and then forgot about it. If everyone's ok with the wording I'll post it today.

If anyone in HRM is offering...

Well, our tank is still cycling, I just did a 25% water change today, but we have an awful case of Ich, and we`re still losing fishies. (Down to one poor comet and a few tetras) I bought some Ich out (?name?) at Ruffins (the stuff that turns your water blue) and aquarium salt, which I`ve added after the water change. I was told to remove my filter insert from my biowheel, but after the water change, the water was really gunky, and I wanted to clear a little out, so I just put in a little ball of clean polyfloss. But I`m wondering if a little mulm, or floss or something would help, as I`m not sure if the biowheel has enough mulm on it yet to biologically help on its own. Any ideas? I could buy some new floss or a bioball for any trades. Or is adding mulm a good idea?

hmmm, alot of times ich is a result of the fishes immune system being down due to poor water quality. Having a take cycling could contribute to this if there was a heavier fishload then the filter can handle.

If you could find an old sponge from a good source and put it in the filter it should help with that. If you need one I have a spare sponge and I will be driving by lower sackville tomorrow evening around 9pm on my way to NB. I could drop a sponge off to you.

That would be great! I can meet you somewhere or give you my address, whatever is easier for you. I`m at the far end of Sackville, so I might be a little out of your way...
Grateful,
Rachel

Hello all,
Quick update...seems the water change and the meds are working! The water is clearer (? ammonia bloom?) and our little goldfish, the little fish that could, is swimming around, the white spots are reduced by about 50% Yea! The tetras seem happier too...
Good news!
