    Fin Rot Is Back Again

    I have been fighting fin rot with my betta for months now. He got it very bad about 4 months ago and I mostly cleared it up with API fin and body cure. By mostly I mean his fins were not dropping off his body anymore but he hasn’t had any regrowth that I’ve noticed. I’m doing the same treatment...

    Is 82 Degrees Going To Harm Adfs?

    My tank has a heater that normally stays at 79 but living in south Louisiana is making my tank spike as high as 82 throughout the day. Will that high a temp cause damage to the frogs? It seems to be leveled out at 80/81 for the most part and 82 at the highest spike. When it gets that high I...

    Fin Rot Advice

    My betta got fin rot about a month ago and I treated with just aquarium salt. I caught it very early so I thought all was well and good. About a two weeks ago I upgraded from a 6 gallon to a 10 gallon with 3 African Dwarf Frogs added (not my choice in buying- I took them from a friend because...

    Bacterial Problems In Tank?

    This week I got 3 ADF from a friend. They have been doing pretty well from all I can tell. I woke up this morning and went check my tank as usual and noticed raised white dots on my frogs. From a quick google search it seems like a bacterial infection. I’ve been having problems with this in my...

    How To Tell If Adf’s Are Doing Well? & Feeding Concerns

    Two days ago a friend of mine went and got 3 ADF for her tank. The poor things were being terrorized by her other aggressive fish and the store they came from wouldn’t take them back without something wrong with them. I offered to take them before they were killed so I now have the 3 ADF and my...

    Cory Catfish And Gourami Stocking?

    I only have a 10 gallon but would love to have 4-5 Cory catfish and one dwarf gourami. With my tank size is it possible to have that combination work? If not what are my stocking options for either a Cory tank or a dwarf gourami tank? It seems like every site I go to for research has a different...

    Is This Fin Rot?

    I made the mistake of doing a 100% water change since my tank was cycled and i thought it would be okay. My betta was completely lifeless laying on a plant when I came home when he normally swims to the front of the tank and all over when I get home. I assumed it was from the water change...

    Stocking Suggestions For A 10 Gallon Tank?

    I’ve only ever owned betta fish and guppies so I don’t know what works well in 10 gallon tanks. I’ve been thinking about just getting a divider and having two bettas but I already have a betta in a separate tank so I’d like something else. I want to stay away from guppies. I really like...

    How To Change Filter Media Without Loosing Bacteria On Cycling Tank?

    My filter cartridge has been used for about a month and a half now and it’s to the point that the filter is struggling to push water through it because it’s so dirty. I’ve tried just cleaning it a bit in tank water but that’s not working. I’m going through the end stages of finishing my cycling...

    Should I Be Doing Water Changes While Doing Fish-in Cycling?

    I’ve been using Tetra Safe start and have read that when using that for fish in cycles I should go 14 days with no water changes. I’ve also read that Dailey water changes should be done to keep ammonia levels from being deadly. Which is the best way to go? I’m working on cycling a 6.5g with only...

    Ammonia Levels Won’t Drop

    Hello! I am beyond struggling right now. I just got into keeping fish and unfortunately thought I knew what I was doing from when I was younger but was of course wrong. I now know about cycling but can’t seem to get my ammonia levels down. I started with a male betta in a 2 gallon bowl. He...
