    glancing/flicking/internal paracite

    Thanks to Butterfly and Chickadee, but she did not make it. So sad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a feeling that she was sick before I got her. Anyway, I will keep the water up at 82 to make sure to kill off anything that may be lurking, watch the rest closely. Probably not get anymore for at...

    glancing/flicking/internal paracite

    Thanks you guys, I just think that I have one sick fish. Tried the water change, tried the meds, tried the temp increase(82, and it is still there) and am sticking with my normal lighting schedule, which is usually from the time it gets dark until time wake in the AM. But for my betta tank I...

    glancing/flicking/internal paracite

    I did the water change.  Is it possible that she could be pregnant?  I got her from LFS in community platy tank w/males and females. None of the other fish are showing any other signs of stress, since the last dose. How do they act if they are pregnant (platies)? She is eating just fine...

    glancing/flicking/internal paracite

    So when it rains it poors I guess. Thought all was ok now with the cotton off. But shortly after one of the platies started glancing/flicking on a plant. Then shortly after the other did and so did a couple of the guppies, the angel then started glancing. **Went to the LFS...they suggested...

    New guppies...couldn't wait

    I have reservations about letting the angel eat the fry. I dont know, but i guess it will probably happen anyway. Soon my season will start. I am a landscape designer and horticultural specialist, so when the weather breaks I will not have time to breath let alone trying to seperate the fry. I...

    good non-carbon filter

    Is it a regular sponge or is it the bio-sponge (the type that you keep in the filter that collects all the good bacteria). I've seen two types the one I have in which is a meshy sort of material, and then the type that looks like what you wash the dishes with. And can you keep this in if you...

    it's cotton--help get off

    It seems to be cotton, it is flopping around alot more than it was earlier and if it was fungus wouldn't it be staying in one place? **But How can I get it off her.  Do I keep he in the net and try to pick it off (gently), or do I just wait it out and see if she gets it off by the morning, It...

    it's cotton--help get off

    She has calmed down, but now she is just being very still and staying in one spot, and the cotton is just sort of floating there.

    it's cotton--help get off

    It is cotton on the guppie. It is hanging on by a thread, but wont come off. But she is starting to get stressed because it is starting to loosen up and float around by her face, but won't come off. Any ideas on how to get it off. Dont want to freak her out anymore but she is starting to do...

    good non-carbon filter

    I was wondering. Is there a good filter that does not have a carbon media. That does just as good at keeping your water clean and as quiet as a Whisper filter. Reason why--If you have to medicate and each time either remove or take out the carbon filter...cant that get a little expensive, and...

    cotton or fungus

    I will keep on watching him.  No hospital tank, unfortuneatly no room. He is still acting ok though.  Like you said if it starts getting bigger or redder I will medicate. I checked petsmart, very limited on the Omega One at the particular store, also 0 at petco, and very limited at LFS. I will...
