    Help Does Lucky My Puffer Have Some Sort Of Illness?

    That wouldn’t cycle the tank. Water has very little beneficial bacteria. I assume you are getting very lucky with your fish as 99% of the time all of your fish would’ve been dead by now. Please take my advice of what I said and get a test kit and dose accordingly with seachem prime. Once the...

    Then I would do what I said to do, get the test kit to figure out what’s going on because it doesn’t sound like internal parasites.

    Mut Cichlid?

    Lol, I’ll be honest. Couldn’t remember if it was labrodomis or labrochromis.

    Looks like a almost pure yellow labrodomis. The vertical stripes appearing and disappearing is normal

    Help Does Lucky My Puffer Have Some Sort Of Illness?

    Sounds like it isn’t cycled and that’s causing them to have stress and not eating. They require mature tanks and because they are sensitive. Because your tank isn’t cycled yoost likely either have ammonia or nitrite in the water column which is a contributing factor in their deaths since they...

    Help Does Lucky My Puffer Have Some Sort Of Illness?

    I wouldn’t treat them unless you know that’s what he has. What are you offering him to eat? How old is the tank? Does he have a sunken belly? Does he have white stringy poop?

    A school of Khuli loaches, habrosus cory catfish, or pygmeus cory catfish. Those would be my picks

    Help Does Lucky My Puffer Have Some Sort Of Illness?

    Oh I know. I meant they wouldn’t die like he said. I feed mine blood worms (frozen), brine shrimp (frozen), blackworms (live), the occasional bladder snail from the high tech tank, ghost shrim(live), and brine eggs. I see variety as best whether it’s frozen or live both give a lot of natural...

    Duration Of Light For Tank With Two Led Fixtures

    I have a fluval 3.0 planted and a finnex Ray 2 on my high tech tank and I run it for 10 hours. I use more CO2 and ferts but see very good growth and little algae. But you could cut it down to 6-8 hours. Lighting planted tanks is more about intensity of the light versus duration. Short high...

    Help Does Lucky My Puffer Have Some Sort Of Illness?

    They don’t require snails to their diet. Pea puffers are the only puffer species that don’t have the tooth overgrowth problem. This honestly sounds like internal parasites to me. They’re often wildcaught and wildcaught fish are at a much higher risk of developing internal parasites than captive...

    Colour Change On Betta. Should I Be Concerned?

    Betta genetics have a gene called the marble gene that causes color change with age, I would get your water tested at a local fish or pet store they usually offer free water tests and if everything comes back good than it’s just natural color change.

    Question Nitrogen Cycle In Acidic Water?

    Not in aquariums it’s basically impossible to plant it enough to make it 0 ammonium and ammonia. And if anything causes a increase of ph the ammonia would instantly become toxic to the fish. So you can set up a blackwater aquarium but you need to be 100% sure the ph never raises and plant it a lot.

    Question Nitrogen Cycle In Acidic Water?

    It doesn’t at the low ph ammonia becomes ammonium which is abasicallg harmless to fish and then plants absorb all the excess ammonium before it can overload the ecosystem. Above 7 ph ammonium becomes ammonia which is deadly which is why the nitrogen cycle exists.
