    Well I did this and he stopped breathing after about 40 minutes. I do hope he isn't in pain anymore. Thanks again to everyone for the advice. I'm sure Ignatius appreciated it too.

    Yes I've tried fasting as well as peas to see/confirm it was a tumor. There really was no difference it his energy sadly. I'm going to research the clove oil method a bit more then go to my health store and get it. I feel really bad for him

    I'm Not Sure I Can Help My Betta Anymore

    Thank you, I will definitely look into it. Agreed. I will monitor him for another day to see if he swims around/actually seems interested in his surroundings & me. I'll update this post when I come to a decision. Thank you all.

    Setting Up A Fancy Guppy Fry Tank

    I once had a 2.5 gallon hex with the same bulb screw in thingy. I've found that certain pet stores carry replacement bulbs that work for the fixture it's supposed to go into. I forget how many wattage mine went to but I believe it was somewhere around 3 maybe? So maybe if you could find a bulb...

    Setting Up A Fancy Guppy Fry Tank

    Not too sure about the filter, but a 50 watt heater should do fine in an 8 gallon. I personally love black or natural colored gravel for my darker colored guppies And depending on the age difference between the two broods will tell you if you can put them together due to sizing, etc.

    I'm Not Sure I Can Help My Betta Anymore

    Hey guys, Sad update on a betta I made a post about several months ago. My very first betta Ignatius is doing very poorly. He won't actively swim anymore, but will only move for food. He always stays in the corner of his tank, breathing very heavily at all times. I have noticed that...

    Update: He ended up passing but I'm not quite sure what caused it. There doesn't seem to be any abnormalities besides his stomach being very white.

    Well not good news! I just found one of my fry on the verge of death and not quite sure what to do. He was stuck in my sponge filters flow so I scooped him out. He is just barely breathing. Any help would be appreciated

    Need Urgent Help With Guppy Babies

    Thats how I feel with my 6 out of 14 guppy fry that have survived. It seems that feeding several times a day and water changes every other day keep them really active and growing/coloring up quickly.

    Is My Tank Cycled/ Nearly Cycled?

    That could possibly cause the floss to turn dark quickly?

    Is My Tank Cycled/ Nearly Cycled?

    Sorry if I missed where you were talking about it, but is there carbon in your filter?

    Guppy Fry Keep Dying

    I did have an issue with it in a five gallon a few months ago. I'm not too familiar with it so I'll research it a bit more when I'm off work.

    Guppy Fry Keep Dying

    Thankfully nothing wrong with their eyes or stomach. And whenever I find a dead one, the only thing I see wrong is that their color is completely washed out and it looks like they've been dead for awhile, even though I count how many I have every night so it had to have died that night.
