    Canadian fishkeepers, help! Can you buy meds from ebay?

    She probably has some sort of gill flukes. She has difficulty breathing and seems stressed, yet there are no external symptoms (aside from her swimming up and down the tank relentlessly when I'm there) and she eats well. My conclusion would be gill flukes. But i might be wrong. 29 gal, 0 ppm...

    Canadian fishkeepers, help! Can you buy meds from ebay?

    There is this law in Canada that prevents any medication, even meds that don't have antibiotics in them, to be sold unless you have a vet prescription. I am very poor and i cannot afford such a thing. Have you canadian fishkeepers ever tried getting meds from ebay? Does it cross the border? Is...

    29 Gallon Tank Help!! Convict gasping for air with very good water!!

    My cichlid was getting really white around her gills so i was scared it would be an infection of some sort. There was no fuzz or anything inside of her gills or anywhere on her body, so i gave her a little bit of salt as a preventive mesure.

    29 Gallon Tank My convict has something above his eye

    My convict is eating, my water parameters are 0.5 ppm nitrates, 0 ppm nitrites and what seems like 0 ppm ammonia (I can't tell if the color is yellow enough but it looks pretty yellow so I'm assuming its 0 ppm). I have not seen him flash or gasp for air. Fins are not clamped. Active. But there...

    What is this, white film on wood?

    I'm panicking. This is probably not algae: this looks like mold! There is a white film forming around this piece of wood I bought at a petsmart. I've only been running my tank for three days. How do i make sure my tank is safe? I only have ammonia, nitrite, nitrates, ph, high range ph and...

    29 Gallon Tank How can I tell if my tank is cycled?

    The problem I have is that I don't have ammonia to put in my tank. I only have fish food in the form of flakes. I also borrowed someone's filter cartridge that came from their axolotl tank, and i added what seemed to be live bacteria + a substrate that was advertised as having helpful bacteria...

    29 Gallon Tank My hang on thne back not working help

    I hate this thing. I tried to start it up once but it didn't have water in it. Then i put water in it and it was good, but out of the blue it stopped working. The water was still in it, there was nothing stuck, and everything is plugged in. I know this isn't a problem about electricity because...
