    White Type Of Fungus? On My Neon Tetras

    I just had a little bit of inflammation on my betta's gill, and used Paraguard to treat him. It's a good all-around antibiotic that's good to have in the future. :>

    Pest Snails?

    If you want a cool addition to your tank and aren't overstocked with fish, an Assassin Snail is a fun tankmate for a 20 gal! They munch on the smaller pest snails, but seem to leave fish alone. I haven't put them with any larger snails like Nerites or Mysteries, so I can't really vouch for them...

    Corydoras Has White Fuzzy On Head

    Hello! So my Cory Cat, Wreck-Gar, was getting a lesion on his face that looked very similar to hole in the head. However, when I treated him for it, the lesion seemed to close up and grow out into a white poff. I tried to gently remove some of it with tweezers, but I think it's firmly rooted in...

    Is My Betta Sick?

    So after reading through this, I'd like to ask you if the sponge you used was a dish sponge. If so, I would take it out, as far too many dish sponges are made with an antibacterial or antI mildew agent that can harm your fish. A good replacement for it would be a sponge intake cover such as...

    Betta Questions

    Marimos are a type of algae that originate in Japan from the currents rolling algae along. They are beneficial in the way a regular aquarium plant is in the fact that they take nutrients from the tank and filter the water a little bit. They also put oxygen into the water for the fish. They...

    Best Sufrace Plants?

    Water Sprite is a fun plant! Makes a lovely canopy at the top and grows pretty fast. Roots are present, but good for catching particles that shrimp can chow down on.

    All About Copepods!

    Yes, Cyclopoida! They're so cute. ♡ How do you sex them? It makes sense that their population would slow with no addition of food. It's cool to think about stuff like that! :> Also update: I found a small worm that I'm pretty sure is a Planarian from the movements. I know they feed on the...

    All About Copepods!

    Hello! So I recently changed the substrate for my 2.5 gallon tank to start keeping plants. I switched to Fluorite by Seachem and purchased at LFS. I got everything set up and the dust was just settled when I noticed a small buglike creature skittering around my tank. Turns out it was a Copepod...
