    Show me your tanks with Glofish

    Thanks! My kid actually had a super-bright-neon Glofish tank for quite a while—we went all-in on the decor. I think that’s why I’m thinking of a more naturalistic tank or monochrome color fish this time.

    Show me your tanks with Glofish

    I’m converting my old BioCube 29 from saltwater to a freshwater tank with Glofish tetras. I’m not sure if I want to do only Glofish or others too, and I’m undecided on what colors of Glofish tetras I want. One of each? Keep more of fewer colors? I don’t want it to look like a total kiddie tank...

    Is This Goldfish Sick?

    Thank you, all!! He’s in the big box pet store, so I’m hoping that if I bring him home, he’ll color up some and look healthier. (Thanks FrostedFlakes and Addie42 — he does look like he’s seen some stuff ) From looking at these pictures again, I just noticed one of his eyes is all black and the...

    Is This Goldfish Sick?

    HI all! I’m peeking back into FL to ask some goldfish keepers if a fish I’m considering is sick. I don’t know much about normal vs unusual goldfish coloration. Is this coloration normal, or are the black/gray “freckles” and blackish-gray patch on the head indications of a disease? Thanks...

    Sick Angel— Can You Tell What’s Wrong?

    Thank you, Francine! I hope she’ll be OK. She’s one of my favorite fish! I also have Metroplex which I heard can work? I’ll have to look into hole in the head more. I hope maybe she just spazzed out and ran into something and she hasn’t been feeling well while she heals from that.

    Bubbles/air Sacs On My Pearlscale’s Backside?

    Just an update in case anyone is looking for this in the future: I put the little guy in a hospital tank with Metroplex dosed per label instructions. I changed most of the water every other day before I dosed Metro. The water was heated to 79-80 and had a filter and air stone. After a course...

    Sick Angel— Can You Tell What’s Wrong?

    I just got back from a 16-day trip. The morning I left, I saw that my angelfish had a gash or hole in her head. I hoped it wasn’t hole in the head disease, but there was nothing I could do just then. We just got back from the trip and I’m relieved that my angel is still alive and swimming, but...

    Bubbles/air Sacs On My Pearlscale’s Backside?

    I just popped back in to check the thread, thanks for the replies all. The bubbles went down for a week and then have come back again! The tank isn’t planted, but I’ll look into gas bubble disease.

    Bubbles/air Sacs On My Pearlscale’s Backside?

    HI Fishlorians! I was looking carefully at our two ping pong pearlscales tonight, and I noticed one of them has several strange bubble-looking, air-sac type of things on its backside, by the vent. I’m attaching some pics with arrows pointing to the bubble/sac things. Also, here is a video...

    Can Anyone Sex These Rams?

    HI all I’ve been looking for a Bolivian ram for a while and found these two today. I was originally thinking I would get one, but if these two are a pair I wouldn’t want to split them up. Can anyone sex these? Is it a male/female pair?

    Please Help Id Betta Weirdness

    HI all, I'm helping my dad with some water changes at his house today. He mentioned his betta Staffy has been lethargic and didn't eat today. I found where Staffy was hiding and saw he has this terrible looking whitish stuff on his underside. Is it fungus? Or could anyone please make an ID...
