Interesting the method you use to add in the fish. I was advised ages ago to change it to the method you use to adding about two glasses of water into the back. Then leave the fish in the bag for 15-20 minutes. Any advice please?

What I do is acclimate them for a little while, then I get my net and my bucket place it over it and do the same method as well. It's to prevent death because of oxygen mixing with ammonia

I think so many are nervous to keep discus because of the stigma behind them when it comes to care level. Some newer videos on discus could help change that once again for your newer subscribers. They are beautiful fish 😁

Joey if you heat the room not the aquariums why do you put them in the tank to acclimate?
The king of DIY
The king of DIY 3 ամիս առաջ
For the video and educational reasons. I just do the acclimation like everyone should instead of custom to my set up. If I didn’t, I get hundreds of comments that call me names and I have to reply to them all stating “I hear the room and not the tanks”... even though I have said it countless times 😂 . Keep in mind, I’m going into my 13th year of making videos. I know exactly what is going to be said most of the time. Yet... sometimes if the video is too specific, I don’t get any comments and the video performs poorly due to lack of engagement. So at times I will purposely leave out something, say something or pronounce something in a way that gets the comments section flooded.

Jennifer Bingham
Jennifer Bingham 2 ամիս առաջ
@Akumagits ok, so you basically cant get fish meds in Canada. Who in their right mind would make a vet appointment for a school of tetras? I can understand doing that more if you have a large fish that is in need of antibiotics. But let's face facts, the vast majority of fish keepers are not going to be running to the vet with their fish. Yes misuse of antibiotics is bad, but you are not going to run into too many issues of that, at all with fish.
Akumagits 2 ամիս առաջ
@Jennifer Bingham once again, incorrect. you can get medication for pets. you just need to go to a vet to get a script. misuse of antibiotics is very bad.

If anybody rinse their bags and use them again. Because that's what I do I rinse my bags out several times and then we use them again when I go to the store. Just to save plastic. By the way I know those plant roots on the back of your tanks. Mine look the same way too

Ok @the king of diy, I do not understand why you are perpetuating the fallacy that one can not get medications for fish in Canada. Health Canada's orders are that antibiotics for fish, and other forms of pets, cannot be sold in Pet Stores. You need to get a prescription from a Vet. Unregulated use of antibiotics is very bad. While I do think it is very admirable that you are promoting an alternative to antibiotics that is readily available for sale in LFSs. You are doing everyone a disservice for promoting this line of thinking, and not explaining to people why.
Akumagits 3 ամիս առաջ
@Jennifer Bingham yes if raising the temperature and the addition of salt doesnt show any improvement. I mean do you not go see a doctor if you are ill?

There is 100% cross contamination even if you dump the fish store water. The fish themselves will already be infected with parasites, fungus, bacteria, etc., so it makes no difference mixing the waters. It's crazy to me that people still believe this nonsense.

agreed. which is why he’s quarantining them and adding that medication.
Jennifer Bingham
Jennifer Bingham 3 ամիս առաջ
It's more so that you dont know the exact ammonia levels, in the bag water. With dumping 10 bags of discus in the tank, that's a whole lot of pet store water going into a tank. If I was introducing 1 or 2 small fish in a small bag I have just temp acclimated and dumped. I dont do it for any reason other than that. Of course the fish themselves would already have a parasite or other nasty on it. That's why he said quarantine like 5 times.

why was the bucket he was putting the water in look so dirty? or was it just the angle of the shot?
Elijah Protzman
Elijah Protzman 3 ամիս առաջ
they probably medicate their water causing it to turn brownish at an angle. sometimes when i get fish from my LFS the water is yellow.
Jennifer Bingham
Jennifer Bingham 3 ամիս առաջ
Maybe the bucket was a little dirty? It did look a bit dingy, but if he is using it for fish only it's not gonna matter a whole as the fish aren't sitting in that water.

Jennifer Bingham

@Jason Archer I can understand that. Trying to get them in fresher water without shocking them. I have never kept anything I didnt plop n drop.
Jason Archer
Jason Archer 3 ամիս առաջ
@Jennifer Bingham well in my research, and not so much my experience, invertebrates can be much more prone to shock resulting in a fatality during acclimation. The only issue I run into personally, is I typically have to order mine which sit in a bag for 2ish days. By the time they get to me I'm split between an aggressive drip acclimation or the aforementioned plop and drop.
Jennifer Bingham
Jennifer Bingham 3 ամիս առաջ
I truly do not know about shrimp at all. They are not something I have ever really been interested in keeping. I did not know that you have to drip acclimate shrimp. I have watched a gazillion videos on fish keeping and many of them have shrimp in their tanks. Out of all of them, none of them treat their water changes any differently because there are shrimp. Would the drip acclimation be for shrimp only tanks specifically? I enjoy learning something new.
Elijah Protzman
Elijah Protzman 3 ամիս առաջ
drip acclimating shrimp is the only way to go. even water changes should be dripped in.

Here's one for you Joey. My old lady just brought home another "parrot" fish. I seen it and nearly jumped out the window. She brought home a dang flower horn........ so I thought. She tells me it's a parrot fish. I quickly pointed out the body colors (typical spotted with the red, pink, blue) and told her she really fd up. After doing a quick search......kirin parrots are real! Hybrid parrot/ flowerhorn! The holy grail in my little fish bubble. What do you know about these fish? They are also referred to as bonsai flowerhorn.
