    Hello all, My betta fish has had an eye that is slightly red and the tiniest bit inflamed. It has been like this for about a week or two now. His health seems perfect besides this. My ammonia was around 0.25 for a few weeks despite doing daily 10% water changes. I was using prime the whole...

    Fish Twitched When Adding Paraguard

    So basically I have been treating my betta fish with paraguard for the past 9 days. Initially he was very lethargic, scratching against the gravel and had some fin rot. He immediately bounced back after I started treatment with paraguard. He has way better energy, is no longer scratching and I...

    Tap Water Ph Drastically Changed

    My tap water pH has been 6.6 since Ive had my fish. Today it is reading 8.0. I called my water district and it is supposed to be 8.0 apparently. I read smart water has a pH of about 6.8. Is it okay if I use smart water for water changes? It is supposed to have electrolytes such as potassium...

    Could This Be Ich?

    I noticed a tiny white spot on the top of my betta today. I don’t know if it is ich or not. While it looks like it I am hopeful it is not for several reasons. I have been doing daily 25% water changes until my tank cycles. My tank still has traces of methylene blue in it. From my calculations...

    Methylene Blue And Herring (possible Interaction)

    So I just came across a possible interaction. I was treating my betta fish with very low dose methylene blue (5% of recommended dose to add to tank) for 4 days after receiving him. This was because he was exposed to high nitrite and ammonia levels, his cup even had algae when I bought him. I was...

    Trying To Remove Methylene Blue

    I am trying to rapidly remove methylene blue from my tank as I ordered a sponge filter that is coming tomorrow. I have an activated carbon filter cartridge that came with my tank. If I float this in the tank, will this still soak up some dye? It has been sitting for a few days wet in a ziploc...
