Rupert dropped my perch in last night, they looked pretty happy in their new home. I had about 2-3mm of algae around the sides of the tank, this morning, my tank is still green, but there's no visible growing algae. they cleaned it all up overnight.

I gave them a little bit of feed this morning, about half a measure of what Rupe recommended, they have now eaten that as well.

Will check my water levels this evening before I freed again.

Goldies are all alive too, gave them some of the perch pellets to try :)

Glad to hear everything is well... and fish happy... :wink:

You should be gently bumping the Silver Perch feed up... watching for any ammonia spikes...

(They should be feeding well with the warmer water)

they've actually been feeding well, quite heavy. I have tested water and not a trace of ammonia or nitrites. I think the skyhigh levels i had in the initial cycle have made a lot of bacteria and they're smashing through the SP production.

Bit concerned now... just went to feed them tonight and just sat my chin on the side of the tank watching for a bit as they're still very shy and they were feeding well, and even finally coming up to the surface to feed(previously they've been snapping the pellets up when my pump outlet pushes them to near the bottom)

However, there seemed to be an awful lot of flashing going on. What are the chances it is caused by something other than ich and should i just wave bye bye to my strawberries and go buy some salt to smack it up to 5ppt?

how much salt do I need? the tank is an ibc and my sump is about half an ibc(as you saw). I'd prefer my tomatoes survive but don't really care about the other plants. I'll trust those with more knowledge to tell me how much salt to put in. I'd rather go heavy and make sure the fish are ok than go low and have them die anyway.

Also is just normal pool salt ok?

Sunray Pool Salt.... Bunnings... about $9 for a 20kg bag.... salt to 6ppt... your tomatoes and most other things will be fine... except for the strawberries... 6-7 kg of salt needed.... (if you include the sump)

Sounds like you got floating pellets??? While I have sinking. But just thought I'd let you know that I thought mine were flashing also, but seems this is just something they do at feed time, since they don't seem to flash at any other time. Perhaps in the excitement of feed time they do it to pick up little particles on the bottom.???

Have u noticed this with young silvers Rupe?

I think you might be on the ball there Dr Luke. I checked on them this morning without feeding and they're swimming around happily without a single flash. I'll get the salt anyway but I won't put it in yet. I'll also stop feeding for a day.
