    How to stop tail biting?

    Hey guys, I'm at my wit's end here; it seems like no matter what I try, my boy keeps ending up with torn fins. I've come to the conclusion he must just be tail biting. I've never physically seen him do it, and I watch him like 80% of the day, but I have seen him turn around and be able to reach...

    Do nerite snails eat diatoms?

    I've heard that they eat all kinds of algae but I just wanted to see if anyone had personal experience with controlling brown algae/diatoms bc I'm having a small outbreak in my 10 gal and a nerite is the only type of dude small enough to add to my snail family without overstocking

    Do you dilute methylene blue before swabbing?

    My fish has pretty bad fin rot and I read that using meth blue to swab wounds directly can be helpful to heal fins and detect exactly where the infected areas are. I'm already about to treat in tank with antibiotics and I don't wanna stress my fish any more with baths or anything but I thought...
