    Help Let's Play Pin The Illness On The Fish.

    Hello there, A couple of years back, I had a half moon Betta (red-pinkish (color) that had similar “velvet” issues with yours. He started to develop gold metallic coloration on his body but he didn’t seem like he had a problem at all. However, he died off after a few months. I think you do...

    Help Male Fish Won't Stop Harrassing Female

    Hello there, Not a gourami expert in anyway whatsoever so anyone feel free to correct me. As far as my knowledge goes, the male is the one supposed to guard the eggs and not the females. On that note, do you see any eggs in the tank that might explain this? Or is it literally just the male...

    Possible Fungal Infection On Empire Gudgeon

    Alright, thanks for that. I don’t have stress coat on hand but I’m dosing with Seachem Prime everyday to keep their slime coats up.

    Possible Fungal Infection On Empire Gudgeon

    Hey there, I do have staple meds on hand. It's good to know the difference between a wound and a fungal infection however, based on the 2 pictures, would you say that my Empire has a fungal infection or simply just a wound? Again, it's been white since the wound first appeared which was after a...

    Possible Fungal Infection On Empire Gudgeon

    Hey Guys, Recently when I was doing a water change, one of my Empire Gudgeons scraped himself badly on a piece of the rock work. The wound was already white to begin with and isn’t fuzzy. It just appears to be a normal flesh wound but just white. I was thinking the possibility of a fungal...

    Faulty Test Kit?

    Hello, Personally, I haven’t had any experiences with faulty test kits. I’ve used Tetra test kits and Seachem test kits and haven’t had any problem before. Are you sure you dosed the correct amount of test solution in according to the instructions? Also, are you sure that you tested for...

    What Tetras To House With Empire Gudgeons?

    To be honest, I wouldn't classify Keyholes as just mid-water dwelling fish. Like most other cichlids of similar size, they tend to hang out in the mid-bottom section. What size is your tank? Personally, I would get a Kribensis if you want a fish you want to see more. Empires are fine too, but...

    What Tetras To House With Empire Gudgeons?

    My Gudgeons tend to hang out in the bottom regions of the tank but occasionally come up when it’s feeding time. I haven’t had any snails in with my Gudgeons before however, I don’t think Gudgeons are big fans when it comes to eating snails. But if times are desperate I won’t be surprised if...

    What Tetras To House With Empire Gudgeons?

    The biggest Empire is maybe about the 3-4 inch mark. Quite a decently sized adult. I'll try looking into the colombians but as I said before, I rather have limited options when it comes to fish so I'll see what I can find.

    Empire Gudgeon Situation

    Hello, I don't really understand why the Empires started snacking on the Embers. It started when I introduced 7 more into the tank and ever since, they've been snacking on the Embers every night/dawn. The Embers are quite tiny in comparison to the biggest Empire. And that particular Empire can...

    Empire Gudgeon Situation

    Hey Y’all, As I’ve previously stated on my other threads, I’ve been recently encountering several problems with my group of Empire Gudgeons. A week ago, I had 3 Ember Tetras in the tank along with the Empires and they were just doing fine. I decided to add more Embers and the following...

    What To Feed Empire Gudgeons

    Hmmm, I'll try giving that a shot if I can get my hands on it. I ordered a tub of NLS Thera A Pellets, they should accept it otherwise, yeah. The thing is, I've read online that most Empire Gudgeons aren't picky eaters. I guess that isn't the case with my group?

    What To Feed Empire Gudgeons

    Hello there, I’ve had a group of Empire Gudgeons (3 Males and 1 Female) for quite some time now. The thing is, I’ve only been able to have them eat Frozen Bloodworms and only one type of dried food. Which is Hikari Sinking Wafers. I’ve tried feeding them a variety of flaked foods, other pellet...

    What Tetras To House With Empire Gudgeons?

    Alright, thanks for the input! Well, I’ve had my Empires for almost a year now and I can say that they’re very picky about food. I’ve offered them a variety of dried food and the only one they accept is Hikari Sinking Wafers. They accept live foods like bloodworms most of the time though! You...

    What Tetras To House With Empire Gudgeons?

    Hey there, When I said tetras, I meant a group of schooling/shoaling fish in general. I live in Indonesia so my options are quite limited when it comes to fish and Candycanes are included. Personally, I was looking more towards Cherry Barbs because their crimson coloration fits very well with...

    What Tetras To House With Empire Gudgeons?

    Hello there, I have 4 Empire Gudgeons (1 Female 3 Males) in a 25G. I used to house a group of ember tetras with them for the past year or so but most of them have died off already. Most likely due to an auto food feeder incident that happened while I was out on holiday. Essentially, I went to...

    Help Molly Pregnant Or Sick?

    Hello, thanks for the response. When I say parameters, I refer to the ammonia, nitrite and nitrate levels in the tank? Correct me if I'm wrong but your planning to do a fishless cycle but the tank alreadu has fish in it? The 1.5ppm reading of ammonia may be causing the molly to act that way...

    Yeah, black skirts tend to be super nippy and they often nip at corpses as well.
