I am getting ready to start a program for my girls called The King’s Daughters program and its a book by Diann Hagee. I am trying to get the same program for our guys but i am needing different topics. I need to put together a workbook. with study guides for them and everything. Thanks for your help.

How to fix my ammonia and save my fish?
I have two lion head goldfish in a 38 gallon tank. I got a filter by aqueon its the 55/75 for 90gal tanks and I have two air bubblers airating the tank. One is calico orange black and white and one is all white except a little black on his back fin. Lately the white one has little greyish black markings around his face and top fin and I’m afraid it is ammonia burns. I bought ammo lock by api and added the proper dose yo the tank after doing a 35% water change. Two days later I checked the ammonia with the water test and my ammonia was at 4!!! I went back and got seachem water solution for chlorine ammonia to try to fix it. My nitrates and nitrites are at 0 and pH is about 7.2. I did a 75% water change and added the seachem stuff. How am I doing and what should I do?
Okay so just to answer some people.
I cycled my tank for 2 weeks because that is what the pet store lady told me. I understand I should have done it longer, I have bought API’s Stress Zyme which adds bio cultures and I have been doing 30-20% water changes with a gravel vacuum every 5-6 days. I got my tank and set it up on April 13th.
Also I know that Ammo-Lock only makes the ammonia “safe” for the fish but does not rid of the ammonia. I have bought seachem’s prime 2 days ago, when I did my 75% change I added it to the new water.
I tested my water’s ammonia today and it dropped to 2 which is a good sign.
So some people say don’t add any more chemicals and junk but what about the prime for dechlorinator and ammonia remover?
Also I changed the water on thursday 75% so today would I do a 20% then?

The first thing for you to do is understand how something like ammo-lock works. It does not remove ammonia from your tank. What it does is turn free ammonia (toxic for fish) into ammonium (non toxic for fish). However, ammonium is just another form of ammonia. As a result, after using ammo-lock there is still ammonia in your tank – it’s just that it is not longer toxic.
This means that most ammonia test will still test positive for ammonia, even after using ammo-lock.
Best solution here is to go back to basics. Use water changes to get your ammonia readings to under 2ppm. You are currently cycling your tank (if you don’t know about the nitrogen cycle in a tank get researching now as it’s going to be invaluable knowledge for keeping fish). As a result, I find it good practise not to let ammonia levels get too high, regardless of what product I am using to keep the ammonia is the safe form. You are going to test your water daily and change water if the ammonia reads over 2ppm. Also be aware that some ammonia-locking products need dosing regularly to be effective (even if you are not changing the water).
At every water change use your preferred chemical to lock the ammonia. Ammo-lock is a good one. I personally use Seachem Prime as that also gets rid of chloramine and chlorine in the new tap water and (at double dosage) will help you through the nitrite stage as well.
Keep this up daily. You should start to see your ammonia levels slowly reduce on their own. As they do so your nitrite levels will rise. Keep the regime up to keep nitrite under 2ppm and treat with something like a double dose of Prime to keep the fish safe during this. Within a couple of weeks you should see the nitrite levels go down and nitrate levels rise.
Once your tank regularly shows zero ammonia and zero nitrites for a few days in a row you can move to a maintenance schedule. Test twice a week (for safety) and change about 30% of the water once a week to keep nitrate levels below 40ppm.
Edit: whilst there are some really excellent pet stores out there the majority are pretty useless when it comes to fish advice so I would always double check what they say against a reputable source. When i first started keeping goldies I used Wet Web Media (web site in which expert fishkeepers give advice out) and a book called Fancy Goldfish by Erik L Johnson. Both were invaluable in helping me.
What you are seeing below is that fishkeepers everywhere all have a slightly different way of doing things though all agree on the basics. Some of the guys who have answered would not use an ammonia neutralising chemical but would rely on daily water changes to keep ammonia levels very low to try and keep the fish alive and healthy while the tank cycles. There is nothing wrong with their suggestions, they clearly are experienced fishkeepers who know when they are talking about. Personally, I find seachem prime to be an excellent product and as the fish are already in the tank as it means they never have to deal with even low levels of ammonia which can stress them out. I would suggest using it daily at the right dosage as an additional protection measure against the ammonia. I would also keep amonia below 2ppm which is still quite high but would reassure me that it wasn’t so high that the Prime couldn’t take care of it all. In addition, very high ammonia readings (even of ‘safe’ ammonia) can stalll the cycle process. Using that I would ditch the ammo-lock as you don’t need both. I also have personally never found anything that effectively cycles a tank quicker than time so would also ditch the Stress Zyme – however, I’m sure others have used it and believed it to be beneficial. I think ot encourages Stress Coat (the slime) on fish which adds to their protection, but Prime also does that as well so again I would consider it redundant.
If your ammonia is 2ppm today then just dose with Seachem Prime but don’t change any water. Test it tomorrow and if it’s above 2ppm then change some. If it’s not then don’t – just dose with Prime. In the meantime, also start testing for nitrites as they will be the next hurdle.
Once the tank is established you will only use Prime for the new water and won’t have to dose every day but while you are cycling a daily dose will deal with the new amounts of ammonia being produced.
Keep editing if you have more q’s and don’t lose heart… You have a big tank and filter for these two fish and so have already got much more right in taking care of them than many, many other people did when they started (myself included). Get over the cycling process and you can start enjoying your little pets much more!

Firstly, stop adding chemicals. It’s like putting a band-aid on the problem. Was your tank cycled before you added the fish? In case you don’t know, this means adding an ammonia source and allowing your tank to run for about 6 weeks so the nitrifying bacteria have a chance to colonise. If you didn’t do this then there is your problem. If you did do this then something has caused you to loose your cycle. Have you done any big water changes or changed your filter media recently? Either of those things could have done it. Your tank is big enough and you have a strong enough filter so I don’t see either of those things being the problem. Do you use a gravel siphon to do 30% water changes every week? I would stop adding the chemicals and continue with the partial water changes until your ammonia comes down. There’s not much more you can do.

Emergency fix is to change more water. Change 50% of the water, and 50% of the ammonia is gone. Repeat as needed.
The ammolock simply converts the ammonia into less toxic ammonium. This is useful because it then harms the fish less. It don’t however make the ammonia go away.
Also, feed less. The more the fish eat, the more ammonia they will produce. They will be fine on 1/2 rations for a few weeks while you get the tank under control.
Long term you need to get the filter cycled. This means growing a population of bacteria in there which “eat” the ammonia, and convert it into nitrate, which isn’t very dangerous to fish. DO NOT change the filter media. If the filters get clogged, just rinse them out in old tank water so they flow properly again. If you see the filters getting grey and slimy this is a GOOD thing. That’s called “bio-film”, and it contains the bacteria you need
They tank will naturally cycle over time, but it may take 2 to 8 weeks depending on “things”. Keep changing the water to keep the fish alive while this is happening.
Have a read here, it explains how the whole ammonia / bacteria / cycle thing works.
You need to get the aquarium working as a natural ecosystem, with things in balance. You can’t get there by dumping in more chemicals. It takes time.

I am desperately looking for a spirit medium thatdoes free readings. Does any one know of a legitimate medium?
I am looking for someone that truly has the gift and does not use it for monetary gain. Is there anyone out there that is truly genuine? I am grieving over the loss of my 21yr old son. I have no peace, I just want to know the truth of the circumstances that lead to this, no matter how good or bad the info may be. I would like to make contact with him. Thanks for the help.

Idk about spirit mediums, but you can Google psychics in your area and im sure you will get more than one choices. They usually dont cost that much.
My best wishes to you and your family
May you find peace

You don’t want to mess with spirits as there are good and bad spirits. God forbid if you attract bad spirits the outcome will be horrible. Better to consult an astrologer
