    Sick Black Molly

    The photo you posted isn’t working for me, but at a guess maybe anchor worms could be the string thing you describe hanging from the gills? I would definitely quarantine off that one molly and try to get to the bottom of what’s making it ill, sounds like it may have some more severe underlying...

    Co2 For 55 Gallon

    I’m not too sure either and want to learn more, but my partner’s sister recently tried to add CO2 and nearly poisoned all the fish, so definitely be careful before you give it a go! We got them all out in time and only one seems to have become a bit disabled from it and the rest are fine, but it...

    Co2 Poisoning, Related Swim Bladder Disease?

    No, I wasn’t home when she installed it, so not sure if it was used incorrectly or if it malfunctioned.

    Co2 Poisoning, Related Swim Bladder Disease?

    A cannister of CO2, for the plants. The CO2 reading was off the charts when we rescued the fish out, we’re certain it was CO2 poisoning.

    Co2 Poisoning, Related Swim Bladder Disease?

    My partner’s sister had a CO2 poisoning incident yesterday after adding a cannister for her plants. Within half an hour all fish (9xguppies, 4x dwarf gouramis, 2x young bristlenose cats, tank 130L) were showing severe symptoms, some immobile, on theirs sides, floating belly up, or gasping and...

    Repairing Leaky 45g?? Help!

    I’m looking to patch up my 45gal that recently sprung a leak- need advice on the best way to go about that. Currently the tank is empty and dry sitting out the back, I’d intended to clean it out and then silicone over the leaky corner. Is it ok to do this or should I strip the old silicone? The...

    Safe Disposal Of Api Test Kit Chemicals?

    Thanks everyone! I guess it's not too bad to stick with dumping them down the loo

    Safe Disposal Of Api Test Kit Chemicals?

    How does everyone dispose of the used test kit chemicals? They seem pretty gnarly according to the safety sheets that accompany them, and I feel awful emptying them down the toilet (the best option I've found for now?) but I don't know what's the most appropriate alternative. What solutions has...

    Screaming Into The Empty Void Part Two: Epsom And Aq Salt Combined?

    I managed two baths today combing the multi cure and Epsom combined, but unfortunately he passed this afternoon. I'm really surprised I didn't have longer, he never fully pine coned like fish in the past have done and though he was lethargic he still pretty pretty aware and 'in there'. I wish I...

    Screaming Into The Empty Void Part Two: Epsom And Aq Salt Combined?

    I'll try and take some fresh photos once he's out of his Epsom bath, but these are from the last couple of days. I was suspecting the saddleback variant of columnaris because of the pale patch on his back, and also attached is a pic of some decor I pulled out that turned out to be coated in...

    Screaming Into The Empty Void Part Two: Epsom And Aq Salt Combined?

    He's in a roughly 31/2 gallon tank, with the usual schedule of water changes being 25% weekly, although since being ill water changes have been much more and I've done two just today to bring the salt down. Params are all zero currently but the tank was cycled before all the water changes took...

    Screaming Into The Empty Void Part Two: Epsom And Aq Salt Combined?

    I'm currently treating my betta for possible saddleback columnaris (??) using AQ salt, because I am in Australia and I cannot access antibiotics. He's spent a day in a 2tsp AQ salt per gallon of water concentration, but now I'm concerned about possible early stage dropsy. If it is the case, it's...

    Dropsy - Now What?

    Is that sodium chloride salt? Or Epsom salt? Are both appropriate for dropsy?

    My Male Crowntail Betta Is Turning White. I’m Really Worried.

    I'm dealing with similar at the moment, my blue betta went white on the fins and has a small white patch on the top of his body. A lot of people suggested marbling to me too but I'm sceptical and recently pulled out a piece of decor that turned out to be covered in white mouldy **** - now from...

    Turquoise Betta Fins Turning Pearly White

    That's what I'm hoping, that it just marbling and I get to watch him turn into a whole new fish lol, but I've never had any experience with it and I definitely wasn't expecting it from this fish. As far as my novice eyes can see it doesn't look like any disease I've heard of, and it started on...

    Turquoise Betta Fins Turning Pearly White

    Ok, these are probably the best I can manage, he is too fast and my phone doesn't focus any closer in. I also forgot to add he's a known fin nipper, so his fins are often really ratty (it looks terrible at the moment). Do you have any suggestions for an appropriate ratio of salt to...

    Turquoise Betta Fins Turning Pearly White

    For the last week I've noticed my betta's fins slowly turning white. First noticed it last Thursday (it's now Friday in Aus so just over a week ago) and it started as a small band at the top of his dorsal fin, and is growing into a larger patch (now takes up about 70% of dorsal fin and is...
