25-27C

it might be best not to buy any more fish till the amonia and nitrate are dealt with & the tank has been clear from all disease for at least 4 weeks.

after that, chose fish carefully & do not but any from an LFS that has diseased tanks or dead fish in ANY of the tanks. if you still want guppies after that, i can easily sell you some of my home bred fry who i can guarantee will not bring in anything nasty as none of my tanks have had any disease in over 4 months.

Nitrate readings of 10 is not bad and won't hurt the fish, But you do need to get the ammonia down, even while treating the fungus. The ammonia is doing damage to the fish.

I would suggest daily water changes along with treating the fish. A salt bath is a good idea as mudskipper suggested, you would be able to do that in a seperate container then put her back into the main tank and not treat the entire tank that way.

in aid also to help get rid of white spot keep your tank light off
and also up the temperature by a couple of degrees, this speeds up the life cycle of the parasite and kills it, keep it higher temp until the white spot has gone then reduce it back slowly...

trust me trade secret and this works !!!

akasue wrote: ok Ive tested my parameters nitrate was 10, amonia 1.2, nitrite 0 and ph was 9. My female guppy has overnight got fungus on on side, she is hanging around the filter but she isnt hiding, will the high ph be causing the problems? Had the guppy about 6 weeks? she was fine yesterday, been keeping an eye on her after I lost all my other guppies.

the high pH will cause the ammonia to have a greater effect on the fish, the fungus will likely be caused as a secondary infection to ammonia burn.

the fact that you have nitrates means you have some working filtration, to remove the ammonia I would personally do water changes, this will also help lower the pH.

the female guppy died after I moved her into her new tank, the male guppy has gone missing from the main tank, I noticed a bite out of his tail yesterday and today he is gone I cant see him anywhere. The sucking loach is my main suspect at the moment, I seen it having a go at my sailfin when its got too close and Ive seen it chasing the tetras around the tank also, Something looks like its had a lttle bite out of the plecos tail

Ah - you have a sucking loach with bettas?
Ah.
I'm not really surprised then - if it sits still long enough these vicious little loaches will "tidy" it up. Whoops.
I don't really recommend them in a tank with delicate or slow moving creatures, unless they are quite big.
They try to eat each other on occasion too...
(Not my most favourite of loaches...)

If you want a loach just to clean the algae off your tank, I advise Hillstream loaches - they are friendly, keep out of the way of other fish, and won't fight. And they are highly amusing to watch. Veritable Hoovers - my mother's is called Dyson - he's done that good a job!
