    Tetra Safe Start, Prime, Vitachem, Garlic Guard... All of them staple things I keep in my fish cabinet. I consider Prime superior but I also keep Stress Coat in hand - Prime, because it is really potent and will get rid of any chlorine/neutralize ammonia, Stress Coat because it has the aloe in...

    Thanks everyone for the great responses. I really don't mind the way she is, at all. I enjoy hanging out with her, going to the theater, going shopping, to eat... etc. We have a great time together and I enjoy when I spend time with her.

    Is this Ich?

    Try to go to 80, never go above 82. Keep the water aerated to make sure there is enough oxygen. As soon as you notice the dots are disappearing, turn the heat back down.

    Is this Ich?

    I see the little dots. If it is, then it is a minor infection. Keeping the water pristine and turning up the heat a little should do it.

    Should I get a snail

    Watch out for the 2 mystery snails... I would go for one. Every single time I have had 2 together I have gotten babies. Yes, people say it is easy to find the egg clusters and remove them, but if one goes unnoticed, they hatch very quickly!!!

    Not fish related at all...(Please Help) HI guys! I know this may not be the best forum to ask this question, but I judge the people at fishlore to be very intelligent people, who I can be sure will give me an honest answer in this touchy subject. Besides, this is the only forum I am part of...

    Is This A Disease??

    I agree with everyone, it does look like some sort of fungus (very similar to what my gold gouramI developed when he was still alive). Keep him in pristine water. If he does not look like he is improving, then proceed to medicate.

    New Boy! :)

    It's funny, I was thinking about the "what if" I paired him up with my female, who is also black and blue (not shimmery blue, just velvet black and blue)... *sigh* we can dream right? ;D

    @ everyone - Thanks! HI Lucy! @ angel_scout - He is a rescue from a cup at petsmart... I was going to stop buying cup babies ever since I lost my last two in terrible ways. But the other day I had to take my doggie to Banfield at petsmart because she was sick, and while I was waiting I could...
