    Hole in tetra

    I didn't really notice it till it was too late. So no time to qt, plus my qt tank isn't in an operable state atm :/ but as for the water change. I just did about a 50% and filter maintenance. So i guess I'll see where it goes

    Hole in tetra

    What is that? Should I be worried for my other fish now?

    Hole in tetra

    I had a tetra that looked deformed. Well it died today, upon closer inspection, the part that looked like it sunk in, was a literal hole in its stomach. Nothing there. What could it be?

    Should I dose nitrates?

    If you add nitrates then they will just keep going down again. Until you reach the point if too much for them, then it will just increase and be like adding poison to your tank, so I'd avoid it

    Should I dose nitrates?

    They are lower now because the plants use them. I would never purposely add nitrate imo. Use normal ferts, and new plants are known to look bad for a while ball mine yellowed and died then regrew after a bit.

    White worm

    No pic. But from googling it, id say nematode is what it resembles. I only saw one. Searched for a while and it seems clear. Where do they come from? I just noticed they are all over the glass tops. What the heck

    Deformed tetra

    They all eat normally. I dont see any fighting. And they all look faded because this picture was taken during a water change, they always fade during them.

    White worm

    I just sucked a little white worm out of my tank. About a quarter inch long. It was wiggling along the surface. Anybody know what it is??

    Glo fish discussion

    I have 1 yellow/green 1 red 1 orange 1 purole and 2 pink tetra glo fish. I love mine. Active, bright, look awesome under moonlights. The other varieties dont do much for me. But the tetras are great, and just as hardy as a normal skirt tetra.

    Common pleco bein a jerk

    I am fully aware of the size issues. I didn't buy the pleco. I had a 6-7" one that i already rehomed, this one is 4-5", and eats an algae wafer a day. I have yet to find a home for this one, and the local pet store doesn't take fish..i'll probably get something like ottos instead of a bn, plecos...

    Common pleco bein a jerk

    My common pleco keeps getting snails in corners, and then running at them and hitting them, backing up and doing it again, or just wiggling his tail pushing them in the corner really hard. What gives??

    Major dropsy

    The fish seems to be recovering! I have it in my ten gallon qt tank with a good amount if salt. It's not as bloated and its scales are going back to normal.
