    Question How Do You Quarantine?

    I’m planning on getting 2 african dwarf frogs (NOT african clawed frogs) to add to my 10 gal planted tank with my betta. I want to quarantine them first to make sure they don’t bring in any diseases, but I don’t know how to quarantine even a fish. I know you put them in a tank by themselves and...

    Help Betta With Red Streaks And Finrot

    Please help me!! My Betta Bruce started showing red streaks in his fins today.

Tank parameters are 6 ph 0 ammonia 0 nitrates 0 nitrites. I...

    Snail Not Moving

    I acclimated him for at least 40 minutes. The betta took one big strike at him but left him alone after that. Pretty sure he thinks its a rock

    Snail Not Moving

    The snail has passed unfortunately. I think he just died yesterday as he had a small odor then but it has only gotten much worse and his trap door is quite open. This is the second snail i have gotten from that store, and considering all of them seemed sick and unhappy i just decided to save...

    Snail Not Moving

    I never mentioned nitrites because in my research it said they were sensitive to high nitrates & i know ammonia is what killed my lest snail. I do have a lot of plants in the tank and i feed my betta once or twice a day and he eats all of it. I use the liquid test kit. I used to use test strips...

    Snail Not Moving

    I test before and a few hours after. I tested before i added the first one and everything was 0. Did a water change, tested the water the next day, everything is still 0. This happened last time i cycled my tank I wasnt getting any nitrites or nitrates but the ammonia consistently became less...

    Snail Not Moving

    Hes in the tank with my betta who is NOT happy about a tank mate. Hes much too big for the betta to eat or even hurt when hes in his shell. I tried poking his trap door to see if hed retract and he didnt and it is slightly open which is strange, my ramshorn always retracted a bit.

    Snail Not Moving

    I figured he was still acclimating, but i wanted to make sure. I have kale but not zucchini would that work? At what point should i be concerned?

    Snail Not Moving

    I purchased a zebra nerite snail yesterday but he was sitting on the ground and wasnt moving then and he hasnt moved at all since yesterday. I poked his trap door yesterday and he retreated a bit so I know hes alive, so how can i get him to move around? I have no nitrates or ammonia and i do...

    New Stock Suggestions

    I recently had to euthanise my betta (rip anubis) and i now have an empty 10 gallon tank. I want to make it a mini community tank with some different shrimp and small nano fish. I like endlers and thought some different colored ones would look cool. Any thoughts?

    When Should I Euthanise My Fish?

    Ive been using stress coat the entire time I had him. Ive been using more and it seems to be helping him heal. What do those meds do?

    When Should I Euthanise My Fish?

    The pineconing is only on half his body and seems to be going down. It used to be on his whole body. He just ate some blood worms and hes mostly responsive to things outside the tank when before he wouldnt respond at all. I dont want to get my hopes up but it seems like hes recovering.
