    Question How To Stop Fin Biting?

    I also have a fin nipper. I’ve found doing frequent water changes helps him heal up much quicker but as soon as his tail regrows to a certain length he just nips it back again. I’ve looked at tons of threads on here about changing their environment, giving them “toys” (mirror or Betta buddy...

    Even Cories Are Colourful

    I love peppered cories they probably have some of the best iridescence. My Orange Venezuelan cories are starting to show their blues and oranges they’re juveniles now so they’ll get even brighter as they mature. My Neon Gold stripe cories (cw10) also have some nice colors. Very gold and green.

    Question Epsom Salt And Aquarium Salt Together?

    I just wanted to give an update. So I continued to do epsom salt baths and finished treating him with the antibiotics, the eye still looks the same. I moved him out of qt because it never got worse and the other two fish never developed any issues. I’ve decided to name him Lops. Lol. After I...

    Help Weird Bump On Swordtail

    Saturday my boss and I noticed a strange bump on one of the swordtails. It looks like it’s under the skin and is causing a few scales to stick out. I don’t know if it’s an injury or like a tumor or cyst. I don’t think it’s a disease but I don’t know I’ve never seen anything like it. The fish is...

    Growing Vals In Sand Substrate?

    My Val also grows like crazy in sand. I’ve never used root tabs or liquid fertilizer with it, but I keep goldfish lol. I usually have to thin mine out every now and then so they still have a spot to sift through the sand.

    Question Epsom Salt And Aquarium Salt Together?

    The other two are larger goldfish so I can’t really go by the size of their eyes. They both have even eyes and I haven’t noticed them change one way or another. So I’m assuming they’re fine. All of their issues are gone except the mysterious white patch on ones tail. I did go back on the site to...

    Question Epsom Salt And Aquarium Salt Together?

    I have no idea what’s going on with it’s eyes. The one that looks smaller now than the pictures online to me looks normal. So I don’t know if it had pop eye in both eyes and one got resolved and one is getting worse. No idea, the right is getting a little bigger each day. I did an epsom salt...

    Question Epsom Salt And Aquarium Salt Together?

    I’m going to change their water tonight, do you think the bath would be good to do or should I just redose their antibiotics. The eye looks a little bigger today too.

    Question Epsom Salt And Aquarium Salt Together?

    Hahaha I figured it was a typo. It was goldfish island. I ordered from them once before. That time one fish came in with ammonia burns and lice. I thought I’d try one more time because they got in all these beautiful butterfly telescopes. But nope...never again.

    Question Epsom Salt And Aquarium Salt Together?

    I just didn’t know if putting it in fresh water with the epsom salt would be a shock since they have salt in the qt tank now. I’m not ready to take the salt out of the tank because I saw that one of the goldfish had some ich spots, very minor it’s already cleared up. I planned on leaving it in...

    Question Epsom Salt And Aquarium Salt Together?

    Currently I have a new goldfish in qt that I think has popeye. The qt tank already has 0.1% salinity. I was reading that an epsom salt bath could help draw the fluid out and I wanted to try it. I’ve been reading some mixed opinions on mixing them. Normally I would just scoop out some of the...

    I Need A Mystery Snail Expert

    I Sometimes keep mystery snails in my qt tanks to keep the cycle. I recently got a bunch of guppies and didn’t pull out a few snails by accident. Right now the guppies are just being treated with salt. So far the mystery snails are doing well in the water with salt. The reason I didn’t remove...

    Ammonia Testing

    I recently thought I lost my cycle from an API ammonia test. It looked like 0.25. Unfortunately I thought I lost my cycle in a 100 gallon tub with goldfish so I was changing 50 gallons of water daily and dosing with Seachem safe. I tested a well established tank and got the same reading. I...

    Bettas Missing Tail And Vacation

    I think silk plants or live plants would be better just in case it is those plastic plants causing damage.

    Stocking Suggestions For 225 Gallon Cold Water Tank? (fw)

    Are those temperatures mainly just for summer? People keep goldfish outside and they can tolerate fluctuating temps. I know when treating for ich people will crank the temps up on goldfish really high like above 87. I personally don’t have any experience keeping them in that range so I can’t...
