    Freshwater Identification

    Hi everyone!! Does anyone know what kind of fish this is? I had this fish 4/5 years ago and it was one of my favorites! I’m having trouble figuring out what kind of fish it is :( it was see-through but you could see all the organs, and black eyes. Anything will help! Thank you!!

    What's Growing On My Driftwood?

    It looks like little mushrooms so that's what I was thinking but here is another picture. Does that help identify it? I just finished a water change so the water is a little clearer, hoping you can see better!

    Pleco Floating On Surface - Help!

    Pleco Floating On Surface - Help!

    I just did 25% water change 4 days ago. I change 25-30% weekly. There is no carbon filter right now due to the medication. He is not swimming. He is just floating on the surface of the water. The tank has been established for over half a year.

    Water Change Killing My Ghost Shrimp

    I recently set up a new 10 gallon fish tank for my beautiful butterfly betta (fully cycled.) He has lots of friends. 2 cory catfish, 1 ghost shrimp, live plants, and a little snail who I just noticed the other day (must have hitched a ride on one of the plants). Yes, my betta is super laid back...
