    Fin Rot Is Back Again

    I tested my water yesterday ammonia 0 nitrites 0 nitrates between 5-10 (color is in between). If it’s not fin rot I don’t know what it possibly could be. His fin edges are curling up and blackened, and he is loosing big pieces of fin at a time. I’ll go try to take some pictures. Could it maybe...

    Fin Rot Is Back Again

    I have been fighting fin rot with my betta for months now. He got it very bad about 4 months ago and I mostly cleared it up with API fin and body cure. By mostly I mean his fins were not dropping off his body anymore but he hasn’t had any regrowth that I’ve noticed. I’m doing the same treatment...

    Is 82 Degrees Going To Harm Adfs?

    Okay thank you both! My betta seems to be loving the higher temps right now I was just worried about my poor frogs frying in there. I’ll keep an eye on it for sure and move my tank (its right next to a poorly insulated window right now) if it starts getting any higher than 82.

    Is 82 Degrees Going To Harm Adfs?

    My tank has a heater that normally stays at 79 but living in south Louisiana is making my tank spike as high as 82 throughout the day. Will that high a temp cause damage to the frogs? It seems to be leveled out at 80/81 for the most part and 82 at the highest spike. When it gets that high I...

    Fin Rot Advice

    My betta got fin rot about a month ago and I treated with just aquarium salt. I caught it very early so I thought all was well and good. About a two weeks ago I upgraded from a 6 gallon to a 10 gallon with 3 African Dwarf Frogs added (not my choice in buying- I took them from a friend because...

    Bacterial Problems In Tank?

    Yes I’m sure it was bacterial. He was losing his fins day by day with black spots on other parts of his fin. I treated him and he seems to be doing better. He was in a smaller 6.5 gallon and the filter on it was awful so I think that’s what caused it. My tank is kept a little warmer at 79 degrees.

    Bacterial Problems In Tank?

    First two are my biggest guy Kermit. Last one is one of my smaller frogs. I think Kermit has it the worst though so if he’s okay the other two should be fine.

    Bacterial Problems In Tank?

    Yes I just went through treatment for fin rot with my betta. It happened before I got the frogs (only about 2-3 weeks earlier though) so I was worried I could be having more bacterial problems. I was wondering if maybe somehow it was transferred to my new tank. My betta just got switched to the...

    Bacterial Problems In Tank?

    Is it normal for all 3 to spontaneously get it though? I’m a bit overly paranoid because I’m new to frogs. I also just had the bacterial problem with my betta. What would be signs of any type of bacterial disease on the frogs if not the bumps?

    Bacterial Problems In Tank?

    This week I got 3 ADF from a friend. They have been doing pretty well from all I can tell. I woke up this morning and went check my tank as usual and noticed raised white dots on my frogs. From a quick google search it seems like a bacterial infection. I’ve been having problems with this in my...

    How To Tell If Adf’s Are Doing Well? & Feeding Concerns

    I’m worried about their weight now. I only have one frog that looks like the proper weight. My other two are much smaller and skinnier. They are a lot skinnier than they look in the pics. I’m going to go get the food you suggest to see if they are more interested than the pellets. I do have...

    How To Tell If Adf’s Are Doing Well? & Feeding Concerns

    Two days ago a friend of mine went and got 3 ADF for her tank. The poor things were being terrorized by her other aggressive fish and the store they came from wouldn’t take them back without something wrong with them. I offered to take them before they were killed so I now have the 3 ADF and my...

    Cory Catfish And Gourami Stocking?

    I’m definitely not ready to try any badis. I know I’m not skilled enough to care for them properly. You definitely have me sold on a sparkling gourami tank though. Your tank is incredible! What types of plants do you have? I’ve always wanted to do a really densely planted tank like that but...
