    Emergency, lost two mollies

    I second the advice above, do a WC and double the Prime. Would you be able to get a picture of the bodies? What other inhabitants are in the tank, and how have they been affected, if at all? What temperature is the tank at? If you've got the time, see if you can fill out the emergency template...

    Guppy Fry Color?

    Hey, congrats on the fry! My platy fry are all born a faint shade of yellow, some paler and some richer, regardless of what they turn into later (red wag, iridescent, twin bar), so I assume yours will color up later too.

    Polar Blue Parrotfish laying egg

    Hello, welcome to the forum! It's great that you recognize that you probably won't be able to care for all those fish and are planning on rehoming them. Back to the topic, though - as for the eggs, this might seem harsh but I really think you should consider freezing/destroying them ASAP...

    310 gallon build and 55 gallon quarantine tank

    Woah! I'm excited to see that pack of clown loaches! Are you getting small ones to watch them grow or going straight for adults?

    Came across this site( a lot of info)

    This gives me a pretty skeevy feel. On the home page, the author says he's a "degreed chemist" with 43 patents, but doesn't provide a C.V., and then proceeds to defend himself for not providing proof of his claim – something he's constantly calling out others for. I don't want to discount him...

    10 Gallon Tank 10 gal stocking with very chill betta

    Gorgeous betta! Love the different shades of blue :) I'd actually just pick one of the tetra species and get 6 - different species of tetra might not school together, making them more stressed. Besides, 6 of the same species will look cooler than a variety pack haha.

    I don’t go anywhere without my pet goldfish

    Hello, welcome to Fishlore! I've never kept goldfish, so I'll leave health/maintenance advice to a more experienced member. One thing you could do to keep them "entertained," though, is use a laser pointer to play with them. Fish will follow lasers much like cats. I also find that my fish like...

    Anyone up north ever try an ice aquarium?

    I'm curious, what's an ice aquarium? I've never heard of them before.

    Tank in the Garage

    Hello! I'd recommend keeping it inside the house, if at all possible; a 25w heater likely isn't going to be able to heat 5 gallons to a habitable temperature if the ambient is 2C.

    Name my corydoras!

    I'm impressed that you managed to get pictures of all of them sitting (relatively) still! Here's a couple of names I came up with – (Animal themed) 1. Peacock 2. Penguin 3. Capybara 4. Orca (for his/her self esteem!) (Mineral themed) 1. Bismuth 2. Flint 3. Shale 4. Feldspar

    Ulcer? "Bleeding Heart" Platy (pictures attached)

    Update: Looks like it healed itself. I'll be releasing her back into the main tank this weekend. My guess is that a scale got forced off somehow (bacteria? something physical?) causing the round red mark, and then the fish regrew it. I've been keeping an eye out for symptoms in other fish, but...

    Axolotl fungus

    Hello! I've got a couple of axolotls that have needed salt baths before, so I can help you out. Couple of questions: how old/what size is your axolotl? Is he at a healthy weight? So long as he's not very young or very sick, these following instructions should work. For salt baths, make sure to...

    Cats and Fish

    Oh man, I remember you from that thread a while back about whether anyone has ever found a partner on Fishlore! Sorry to hear about both you and your roommate ): Would it be possible to make or buy a wooden canopy? I think one of those would be strong enough to hold a large cat, depending on...

    BettyBrown922 Interview

    Congrats on the new job! Sorry to hear about the rasboras, hope they end up doing well. Got a couple of follow-up questions for you, if you're willing to answer- How'd the nickname Viv come about from Rob? What's your username origin story? How long ago did you get Scott and Joe? Any favorite...

    Small Guilt, flipped snail over

    A bit gross, but a few weeks back I was doing a WC for my axolotls Big Gray, Vaccine, and Chris, and I felt one bump hard into my fingernail and dart away. A couple moments later I saw that there was a small glob of something under my nail and realized that it was a chunk of axolotl skin! I...
