    Red Spot On Goldfish

    Thank you for the comment. I am quite proud of him or her myself. :) The spot looks a little smaller today. It's not raised any more so here's hoping. I treated with anti fungal medication.

    Red Spot On Goldfish

    My favorite goldfish has a sudden red bump that appeared. It honestly has the appearance of a pimple. I checked water conditions. Ammonia 0. Nitrate 20 ppm. Ph 7. Any ideas what it is? I think maybe its just a scrape. Pictures below. Sorry they aren't better he or she never holds still. Still...

    Betta Fin Splitting

    Thanks everyone for your advice. The loach was alone when I got him, but I can rehome him if that's for the best. As for the betta, still about the same, fins look terrible but he's swimming normal. I don't see anything that looks like infection or rot. Knock on wood. I think maybe he tore em...

    Betta Fin Splitting

    Yeah I will probably rehome the khuli. He's tiny at the moment. I will look through the tank to see what he could have cut himself on. Thanks for the advice!

    Newbie Here

    I always like live plants if you can get away with them since they help reduce nitrates plus they aren't as likely to hurt the fish as some of the plastics have been known to do. Good luck with your tanks!!

    Question Adding African Dwarf Frogs With My Betta

    I have 2 adf in with my betta with no issues. Any eggs will get eaten so breeding shouldn't be an issue. My betta leaves the frog food but some eat it so make sure the adf are getting some. And you said you had a low speed filter which is the other thing to watch for. Their little limbs can get...

    Help Additional Stocking For 15 Gallon Fluval Flex With Betta

    I have two african dwarf frogs in with my betta. Not everyone is a fan but they get along. Guppies that aren't too betta like are one option that I haven't tried.

    Question African Dwarf Frog

    They will eat things that fit in their mouths but they are very small. As long as they aren't tiny baby guppies I think they'd be okay. They don't make any noise. And they do seem to be social. I have two and they seem to hang out together quite a bit. Not sure how many, depends on your tank...

    White Pinprick Bumps

    One of my angel fish has little white pinprick bumps that come and go. They don't seem to cause any distress. No other fish are currently affected. I've heard everything from its a highly contagious terminal illness to its fish warts. Any ideas? Currently she has three near her eye. Previously...

    Something like an acara perhaps but you'd have to go 29. I have one that has spunk. And is gorgeous too boot.

    29 Gallon Tank 20/29 Gallon Fish With Spunk

    Honestly I know its not as exciting but a single fancy goldfish can be gorgeous. They are smarter than people give them credit for. Way easier than Oscar's.

    Please Help Me, Cycling

    Honestly I'd try finding a cycled tank for the fish. Sell back or donate to a LFS. Some will baby sit. But that fish will be too big for that tank regardless. Sorry to tell you. Then I'd let it cycle and do something else. Or get at least a 29 for one gold fish.

    Is This Ich Or An Injury Or Something Else?

    Can't tell from the picture but is it fuzzy? May be an infection from a scrape.

    Question Moody Fish

    Oh my yes. My angel fish are actually the least moody. But my bichir and fire eel pout. Occasionally Luna my blue angel decides she's gonna try starting fight. She's the smallest fish in the tank and luckily no one cares. Lol

    Blue Light Mode Affect Plants?

    Its never seemed to affect my plants. I don't think they absorb the blue light but don't quote me on that.
