    Help Why do my dwarf cichlids always get sick???

    If you are comfortable setting up quarentine, I would put the ballon ram in her own tank. Idk what to suggest for treatment though except very clean water and perfect parameters/conditions and Boyd liquid fish vitamins in the water. She needs attention though. Maybe she would benefit from a...

    Should I buy another guppy?

    Guppy grass! It can be planted or float, and it's nice and delicate for docile fish. Perfect cover for babies too! Guppy grass She might not be up to giving birth if there are lots of nitrates. You don't want to see nitrites or ammonia at all in a cycled tank.

    Average Neocaridina Cost?

    Blues are usually more expensive, I think I paid 10$ for a lot of my blue types. I say 7-10$ for blue.

    Should I buy another guppy?

    Ok well get a test when you can and try to keep nitrates under 10ppm. 20ppm is ok, but when they get up to 30 or 40ppm, a water change is in order. Fyi, a 50% WC will bring nitrates down 50%. So if they are 40ppm and you do a 50% WC, you will be left with 20ppm nitrate. All this assuming...

    Should I buy another guppy?

    Ok that's good it's a small pleco, but still a little large for a 10g. Have you tested nitrate lately?

    Help Why do my dwarf cichlids always get sick???

    Idk if this is a real problem, but I would alter their diet. There seems to be a lot of protein and freeze dried foods. And i'm not a fan of Hikari anymore. When you feed the FD foods, do you moisten them first? FD and frozen food only be fed a few times a week as a treat. I prefer to feed...

    Should I buy another guppy?

    What type of pleco? It depends on your water quality, if there is a lot of nitrate, it's possible she won't feel like having babies.

    How deep to make substrate for Anubias Nana?

    I have a bunch of anubias nana and petite in my 5.5g. I don't have any fish, only some snails, so I just rested the plants on the substrate and the roots anchored into the substrate. They are about 1/2 inch to an inch off the substrate. Here's a pic for you to see In my 90g, I just fit them...

    Best Dirt To Use When Dirting A Tank?

    Haha thank you! I get a lot of compliments on that plant. It was 13$ to buy and took a long time to get established, but once it did, well, wow! I gave it some root tab and it exploded. It's about 5 years old as well now.

    Best Dirt To Use When Dirting A Tank?

    Hi! I use large bio rings to anchor my stems. I wrap in floss to cushion and keep it snug. Like this And here's my 5 year old fully dirted 90g (with 3 adult BN plecos!) I'm wanting to convert my 120g to dirted when I see how easy this 90g is, but it would be a big deal to do since the tank...

    Confirmation of internal parasites?

    If she doesn't hold on, and there is a parasitic infestation, you'll want to still treat the other fish. Sorry about any confusion and i'm hoping for her and the rest! My fish lasted 2 years before I noticed with callamanus, so it could all go ok :)

    Love your scape! It looks like a painting ;) The buce and renekii really compliment the desert vibe. Did you get helferi as a recommendation? I know you got your plants already, but it does match your scape theme very well. Downoi 'little star' Helferi Maybe for later ;) It's good to see...

    Confirmation of internal parasites?

    Good idea. I was trying to figure out what we all were suggesting and why. I guess I got the Metro wrong! Well, unless it's Hexamita, I don't think the metro is needed. The mebendazole or albendazole are actual dewormers like Levamisole, flu and fen. I just see the latter more available for...

    Confirmation of internal parasites?

    Metro is not a dewormer. It is an antibiotic and helps to treat Spironucleus (an anaerobic parasite), that's why Metro treats it. But it won't help with worms. To treat worms, a dewormer is absolutely needed. Levamisole, flubendazole or Fenbendazole in the feed. Maybe I've been lucky, but I...

    Confirmation of internal parasites?

    Unfortunately Prazipro hardly touches nematodes. It won't eliminate a worm problem. You are right about the metro. A fish needs to eat the Metro. In cases where the fish definitely has Hex, the meds need to be administered via syringe. And I agree, unfortunately it doesn't sound great for the...

    Confirmation of internal parasites?

    You mention a concave stomach for the one that died. I know he wasn't eating, but it takes a while to get a concave stomach look. Now the other ram purchased at another store is acting weird. I would suspect an internal parasite. There are 3 types of internal parasites: PraziPro treats...

    Help Three Tanks Affected, Swollen Head

    Great news :) When you provide great water quality and nutritious foods, it doesn't take long it's true! My electric blue ram lost her tail completely to nipping and then finrot, it was eroding the flesh! It healed up in a week, totally healed in 2 weeks, grew her whole tail back perfectly...
