My common pleco keeps getting snails in corners, and then running at them and hitting them, backing up and doing it again, or just wiggling his tail pushing them in the corner really hard. What gives??
My last ram is acting like the first. Sitting on the bottom, not laying, and can't seems to stay off it for very long. I noticed the blue face agassizi is also almost whipping him with his tail. And nipping. Is he being beat to death?
Update for those who have tried to help me figure out my plant issues before. SUCCESS. A local fish store told me to take out my purigen. (I have 200 gallons worth in a 75) turns out, it was the problem. I am dosing my normal ferts. Excel, flourish, iron, potassium, root tabs. And my plants are...
Second case of dropsy in one month
Glo tetra this time. Pineconing, bulging, eyes look like they are going to blow out if its head. I have a qt tank now, so I'm moving it there. What product can i use to treat it?
I have a serpae that is close to...

I did a big water change, and added back a piece of driftwood i had out to bleach for a while. And added like 5 new fish. And the day after, the entire tank is covered in white poop. Big white poop. Is this normal? i stopped using purigen as i was told it could be stealing nutrients from plants...
I just read that you can keep tetras with angels, but you cannot keep black skirts because angels will attack black skirts...why would they specifically attack black skirts? It also said cardinals are not good but neons are....is this article just false? It seems odd
My airstones keep making this obnoxious squealing noise and its driving me insane. Never happened before. Now all of a sudden i have to change to a brand new airstone every 12 hours or it starts squealing. Not the pump, the stone. Anyone know a solution?
I was netting a few neons for a quick move, and i noticed that two, once netted, floated belly up, for ten seconds, i thought i killed them. Heart attacks or something. But then woke up and kept going. Can you stun fish? Now one of them swims with its tail slightly above his head, and has to...
Does selectively breeding the prettier shrimp together, result in fuller colored shrimp? I got 12 small rcs from a guy, 5 bucks for all of them. Some are really nice red, some are practically ghost shrimp. I actually noticed one of the females has eggs now and a few are showing really vibrant...
Getting my hospital tank today. Using a sponge filter, my plan is i take a good number of the ceramic beads from my canister on the 75, (i have a LOT) and shove them inside the sponge filter. Will that work?
