    :-( My fish are dying...

    I am sorry that you are losing so many fish, it is so hard . I just recently lost my bala and that was hard! From what I understand most aggressive fish are so when the light is off and no one is looking. Maybe try removing the dwarf gourami, out him into another tank and see if there are...

    Strange Behavoir in Obviously sick Bala

    What if I do treat them and everything is normal? Will treating them make things worse?

    Strange Behavoir in Obviously sick Bala

    I feed them Tropical Premium Flakes and Complete microgranules (alternating). I actually did not even realize that there was a problem before reading that the color was not right, so I have not tried any meds at all. I am pretty sure that they have had this color for a very long time now.

    Strange Behavoir in Obviously sick Bala

    I lost my bala today, he sure hung in there for a long time. He was not well though so it is a good thing. I read in another post about white poop, this indicates a problem for sure? If they are pooping white what needs to be done? Thanx

    Strange Behavoir in Obviously sick Bala

    Thank you very much. Yeah, I think that he is in pretty serious shape. I just wish that there was something that I could do for him. The fact that he has lived this long would tell me that it is not a contagious disease. I have not quarantined him is this a fair assumption?

    Strange Behavoir in Obviously sick Bala

    Thank you for your response. I have one other bala and a red-tail and a swordtail. I am thinking about getting a 125 gal as well, I just don't want to do it if they are both going to die on me. The only other problem is that he is not eating at all as he does not seem to have the strength...

    Strange Behavoir in Obviously sick Bala

    For the past four days it would seem that our bala was going to die. About 4 days ago I noticed our oldest bala (about 4 inches long) swimming upside down and vertical looking like it was going to die. We were sure that by morning he would be gone. The next morning we were surprised to see...

    betta Went Into Slow Mode

    Thank you everyone so much for your kind words. ITA with you Neen, my fish tank is sitting here empty and it is sooooo hard to see it!! I am not too sure if I want to get another one now as it seems silly but it is too hard to watch them die first off and then when they die that is the worst...

    betta Went Into Slow Mode

    Thank you so much for your words of encouragement but whenever a fish dies I wonder what I did wrong. How can you tell the age of the fish? Do the Petstore people know this?

    betta Went Into Slow Mode

    There are no other signs at all, sometimes I find him at the very bottom other times he is at the very top stuck in the corner. I feed him blood worms once a week and pellets the rest of the time. He is the only one in the tank, maybe he is lonely? I am not sure at all how old he was when we...

    betta Went Into Slow Mode

    I have had a betta for about 4 months and he seems to be going into slow mode. He stays mainly in the corner of the tank (10 gallon) at the very top with his face stuck right into the glass. He was eating but today he doesn't even seem interested in that. I did the tests and here they are...

    How can you tell when fish are sick....

    I definetetly change more than 3 gallons at a time. I do around a 30% each time that I do a water change. I check my nitrates weekly and they are always around 5 with ammonia and nitrites being 0. I was told to hold off on doing them weekly as this may not be good either. So I am just not too...

    How long have you had your fish for?

    Thank you everyone for your information! It is good to know that I am not going to have funerals for my fish every few months! Although at the rate that I am going with fish that seems to be the case for me!
