    Fin rot or fin nip

    Thanks. I am setting something similar with my other guppy too. I created a separate guppy tank and these can go there but I am afraid transferring them now if they have fin rot. I don’t have a quarantine tank but don’t mind setting something up in a small bucket.

    Cycle help - confused :-/

    Hey there - I recently cycled my tank and I can share my experience. I did a fish in cycle which I guess you have to do now that you have 6 fish. I started with Seachem stability and prime but frankly Idid not have any success. Then later out of desperation I used TSS+ and my tank was cycled...

    Sterbai vs. peppered cory

    Hi all I am planning to get around 6-8 Corydoras tomorrow. I had almost made up my mind to by Sterbai cories but I was reading up online and somewhere it said they are less hardier and die if the conditions are not optimal. On the other hand peppered cories are very hardy and are best for new...

    What’s happened to my angelfish fin

    Yes I do have lots of driftwood, nothing I would say is very sharp but could be a mishap! He seems to be fine otherwise. Does this heal ever or will stay like this for ever. Sorry how do I make sure it does get infected, do I purchase some medication. Also do I quarantine him

    me too but just fear they would be aggressive towards Cories who are bottom dwellers too

    Yes Apistogramma hongsloi look wonderful. I will definitely will look into them. Thanks for the suggestion. Well I don’t plan to breed them so it’s a good thing the cories will eat their egg. Is one Bolivian ram enough or do I need to get more.

    I read some stories about rummy nose fin nipping, I always thought they are the most peaceful fish...lol

    Thank you very much for your feedback. My angelfish (2) are small for now maybe 1.5-2 inches so that way they are staying away from the 2 rummy nose. Also my rummy nose school with my 3 danios. I love some of these suggestions, rainbows could be great and so would Bolivian rams. I am a bit...

    It’s a 40 gallon tank, yes agreed I love rummy nose and definitely need more rummy nose. I had a few more but unfortunately they died not sure why the ammonia was 0, I heard they are delicate fish hence I am being cautious there.
