    Need help with my gourami!

    So a couple weeks ago one of my gouramis became severely bloated and was starting to pinecone. I tried to feed him peas, I tried Epsom salt baths for a few days, I did a course of prazipro and then a big water change to do a treatment of eSHa 2000. His bloat has gradually gone down but he is...

    Dwarf Puffer Terrorising Tank

    I’ve placed the big guy back in the 30L... he doesn’t seem too happy about it and is chasing the glass a bit but I’m sure he’ll settle. the other 2 males have had a few standoffs and fights since but they seem to go their own ways afterwards so hopefully they just need to establish a territory...

    Dwarf Puffer Terrorising Tank

    HI all, I have 4 dwarf puffers, I think 3 male 1 female.. not a good ratio I know but I read that a maturing male will release hormones to force the other to become female but that didn’t work. One of the males is big and round and the female a little smaller but the other males are around half...

    Dwarf Puffer Rescue!

    Sadly he didn’t make it, my guess is he had so much food too quickly and either didn’t have chance to digest or just couldn’t. It’s sad that it even got to this point the LFS asked if I wanted some more ordered in, no thanks, I’ll go elsewhere! Thanks for all of your concern

    Dwarf Puffer Rescue!

    I quickly realised how chunky my other little guys are. It doesn’t seem weak and is happily swimming and hunting, it’s also has a little snooze in the plants, it had to have been there for at least 1-2 months without food or a water change. Unfortunately It’s in the same tank with the puffers...

    Funny Funny, But Serious Question...

    So I got my puffers 2 weeks ago, the first water change was a traumatic experience to say the least, one of the baby puffers turned into a ping pong ball and it was terrifying. I think the reason this happened was because the siphon was scary and as the water level went down, the plants closed...

    Dwarf Puffer Rescue!

    HI everybody, Today I rescued a small dwarf puffer from my LFS, the tank was around 10 litres with 2 dead plants and 1 other dead puffer sucked against the filter and no lights, no snail even though there were loads in the plants below the poor thing... I had to take it and rehome it with 4...

    White Ball Inside Ornament

    HI all, I’m new to this forum and and have found huge amount of help so far while starting up my first tank. I have a 30L Biorb flow that has been cycling for around 2-3 weeks, about a week ago I added some live plants and I have spotted at least 5 tadpole snails that have found their way...
