    Hob Filter For Cory Tank

    Just wanted to thank all of you for your help. I visited a semi local small aquarium shop this weekend. They had a tidal 55 in stock. Even unboxed it and measured the intake for me. It's going to work for sure. Love supporting any local non big box store, so I went ahead and purchased it. Thank...

    Seeding Quarantine Tank & Hexamita

    Thank you so very much. Will get the tank seasoned before adding them. Happy to hear they're not prone to hex. My bristlenose has never had it either. As for the angel and the heat, he wouldn't eat anything, not even his favorite frozen foods. A reputable online angel breeder advised me to...

    Seeding Quarantine Tank & Hexamita

    DoubleDutch Hi. I was hoping you could read my post. You are very knowledgeable about Corys. I think they're so awesome. Don't want to unintentionally hurt them.

    Hob Filter For Cory Tank

    I was looking at those online. My 20 long is just 12 3/4 inches tall. Plus I have to subtract from that for substrate. Would you happen to know the total length of the filter with the intake tube?

    Hob Filter For Cory Tank

    Will be setting up a 20 gallon long tank to house 6 to 8 cories. The tank is only about 12 inches tall, so I'm a little confused about the 160 to 200 gph suggestion for HOBs, and the length of the intake tubes on these larger filters. Right now I'm looking at the Fluval C3, rated at 153 gallons...

    Seeding Quarantine Tank & Hexamita

    I have 60 gallon established tank that houses 2 angelfish and a bristle nose pleco. I've had the angels for 3 years. They had hexamita when I first got them, and it has showed up a 3 or 4 times over 3 years. Each time they were treated with metro and then symptoms were gone. I'm assuming...

    Angelfish Fin Rot Fungal Or Bacterial?

    Yes, thanks again. Came across your post from 2017 explaining the difference between bacterial and fungal fin rot. Found it to be very helpful.

    Angelfish Fin Rot Fungal Or Bacterial?

    Hi again everyone, I'm reasonably sure my angel has some saprolegnia on his fins. Even though my camera doesn't pick it up, my daughter assures me the circled areas are hairy, fuzzy. I read that when saprolegnia begins, first there's a tiny white circle, and then it expands and fuzzes from...

    Angelfish Fin Rot Fungal Or Bacterial?

    He's such a good boy. Held still for a picture. It looks better in some ways. Really skinny though. I think it's going to break off again soon. The bottom circled white dot on the fin tip is where it broke off the first time. Then there's a section of what I think looks like normal looking...
