    Tric

    So what a way to start off the cold season than with tric yeah . Pond has just decided to have a bad day . Found tric on 3 fish not massive amounts but enough to bug the hell out the fish . And massive drop in pH and jump in ammonia. I have being using a fair bit of st of late with the water boards doing 5x chemicals. This will be my first time with pp how do I keep it purple for 4 hours just worried about there still being amounts of st in the pond ?

    The ST in the pond already will ‘consume’ PP initially when you put it in so the water will go brown and not purple to start with. If I were you I would get an ORP meter so you can put the exact right amount in and keep it there for the 4 hours. Otherwise you risk underdosing or overdosing with PP.

    I can’t see very well what those pics are of. Looks like a fleshy mass growing on your fish?

    Whereabouts on the tail? Is it anywhere near the anus?
