    Sick Molly

    HI guys Sadly my favorite Molly has come to the end of her life. She has dropsy and is extremely pineconed. The fish are all now pecking at her as she's just so ill. I really need to know how to euthanize her. I have clove oil but I've seen mixed reviews on it. Some say they suffer but I...

    Fish Id... Tetra?

    Sorry for taking so long to reply. He's very stressed so is hardly staying still. He needs a school of tetras with him. I have him in a QT at the moment with just the Cory's.. he does have a red analfin

    Fish Id... Tetra?

    Thank you both so much. I thought it was a Tetra from when I first saw it. I'll see if I can get any more. Will it be okay with any similar tetras or will it need to be with the same species?

    Fish Id... Tetra?

    HI guys, I bought some Cory's from my lfs today and I got an added extra. Another fish. I think that it may be a Tetra. Maybe a phantom but I'm not sure. Just wondering if anybody knows what it is. Obviously I only have 1. So will need to get more if they are compatible with my fish... It...

    Unexplained Corydora Deaths

    ssferret thank you so much for your reply. My tank is already cycled so I shouldn't be having the problems with the ammonia or the nitrite, my nitrate levels are so high because of my tap water :/ However for a new fishkeeper you are very well informed. I do a 50% change once a week or 2 25%...

    Yes the tank is fully cycled. Had 5 guppies in it before being QTd and they were in there 6 weeks, and before that it was cycled for 4 weeks so yeah it is cycled. The nitrates are in the tap water. I do have a nitrate remover filter which I filter the water thought before it goes into the tanks

    Unexplained Corydora Deaths

    No, only the albino one ate some. Think a black one ate 1... But there's not really much more I can do... It's not my fault is it... Do you think it's come from the LFS or it's something I've done?

    Unexplained Corydora Deaths

    I have 3 other tanks and all of the fish are doing fine in them. My Cory's in the 60 gallon are fine too. I just gave the QT Cory's some blood worms. Sadly the black Cory did die. That's 3 today alone... I done a water change yesterday however I will do another one just to be on the safe side...

    Unexplained Corydora Deaths

    A mix of these both Some of the Cory's are now not able to swim and lie on their side. I really don't know her I have done wrong.... Shall I move them over to my 60 gallon? I'm not sure what to do... Think one of the black ones has just died too

    You see the albino Cory in the pic. It's like him. But then one of my bronze ones is lying upright in a tree... I'm not sure if air seems to be coming out of his gills. Maybe ther s too much oxygen in the tank?
