    20 Gallon Tank CPD Deformity? Can I help him?

    Sooooo I’m still hanging on to this little fella … if / when I’m sure there are no parasites I might just dump him in with the others and cull any fry who may survive. I’m in Canada and it’s really tough to get fish meds here (if anyone has any tips on that - please do DM me!) so it’s not just...

    20 Gallon Tank CPD Deformity? Can I help him?

    this is mostly a question for the other healthy CPDs, but will I have fry survive in a tank with kuhli loaches, otos and a betta? I am kind of hoping not to end up with 1,000 fish like you do with guppies, endlers and such….

    20 Gallon Tank CPD Deformity? Can I help him?

    The others look normal and have been fattening up / colouring up nicely (but I will keep a close eye on them since if it’s parasite, they all probably have it …) Ok I know this might be annoying since I already received good advice from smart and experienced people but… I did manage to get some...

    20 Gallon Tank CPD Deformity? Can I help him?

    I’ve been pining for some CDP for a year now and finally picked up 6 yesterday I’m going back soon for at least 4 more. One of the little fellas seems to be skinnier and shaped differently than the rest. He is keepning up with the others just fine, and he is eating. I don’t think he’s sick...

    Documenting Dragon Eye / Diamond Eye / Snake Eye

    Yeah, I was super into bettas 10-15 years ago and had never heard of such a thing. When I got back into the hobby earlier this year, I had never heard of it either. It’s sad but from what I hear, they can live relatively normal lives. But ideally, breeders would selectively breed to prevent...

    Documenting Dragon Eye / Diamond Eye / Snake Eye

    Alright, been awhile since the last update. Little fish man has not been cooperating with the camera. So much so, I only have one eye this time, the other eye has stayed about the same. As you can see…. the condition has advanced quite a bit since July :( Quality of today’s photo isn’t great...

    A bug??? Please what is this

    Hey StarGirl, Do you think plants would survive a bleach bath AND alum dip, similar to what’s described here? Dipping you Plants for Snails/Algae: Dips using Pot. Permanganate, Bleach, Alumn. Ive pretty much decided to do a complete tear down and start over with a new tank, new substrate, new...

    Snail infestation… please give me hope lol

    I am tempted to do this, but I have 8 kuhli loaches. I’ve never tried, but I imagine that netting them not just once but twice (once to take them out, again to put them back) is going to be a task in itself those guys are wild! I do plan on replacing my current substrate with Stratum...

    Snail infestation… please give me hope lol

    Ah, good to know! My betta loves to eat them after they’re crushed, I’ll leave just a few for him and pull the rest out!

    Snail infestation… please give me hope lol

    I don’t really need help … just hoping to find someone to commiserate or maybe give me hope for a snail free future. I went away for a week and left a fish sitter in charge with all the instructions. I had a small snail infestation at that point, and had reduced the problem to occasional baby...

    Losing scales? Changing color? Something else?

    Thank you!! I am about to go away for a week and while my fish sitter is great at feeding and monitoring, I really don’t want to have them dealing with a sick Photo on the left is July 25. On the right, today.
