    Sick Dwarf Gourami

    Sorry for the long post... I, as the title states, have a sick DG... I just recovered from a strong bout of depression and had neglected my tanks until Sunday. When I went to my tanks I noticed that one of my Cory Cats and a guppy died. I tested the water to see what I was dealing with and had...

    Oh probably... wouldn’t be surprised... I don’t even know what type of ailment that would even warrant shots

    Pets You Would Never Take To The Vet

    Nowadays I wouldn’t take any of my fish to the vet... but when I was a kid, my father was huge into aquariums, and the first time he brought me fishing he let me keep the first fish I ever caught (was just a sunny of some type). I named him “Cookie Monster” and absolutely loved him. Sadly...

    My 75 Gal Leaked... What Should I Do?

    I got real excited for my new 75gal, but I had a nagging feeling that I should do one more leak test as I only did the previous test for 3 days... luckily I listened to that feeling. I don't know where the leak is coming from, my guess is the bottom since there wasn't any water on the sides but...

    Question About The Water Level In My Tank..

    Increasing the water level will decrease the amount of splashing. I, personally, keep my water level at the height of the output of my HOBs, and slightly higher than the output for my internal filter (note: this is the TopFin Internal Filter that has a spreader bar), this keeps the surface of...

    Setting Up A Fancy Guppy Fry Tank

    I don’t know how many gallons per guppy is recommended, but I’ve heard 1 gallon per guppy. With guppies, you can keep either gender separate. Most people prefer keeping only males because they tend to be more colorful and you don’t need to worry about fry. If a female has already had fry once...

    Can A Fish Recover From Swim Bladder Issues Within A Couple Hours?

    I performed a major clean and WC last night since I'll be leaving for a week and I don't want our pet sitter having to worry about anything other than giving the already sorted and labeled food, and making sure the filters/heaters are working. After I was done, one of my Cardinal Tetras seemed...

    Is This Fin Rot?

    Yeah, he doesn't sit still very often so it's really hard to get decent pictures. Doesn't help he's on dark substrate haha. So fins regrow clear, not pigmented?

    Is This Fin Rot?

    A couple days ago I rescued Onyx, a black betta, from Petsmart. I know that he has probably had fin rot in the past (if not currently) because his fins are all ragged, but I noticed that there are clear patches at the edge of his fins and was wondering if that is also fin rot or something else...

    I'm Just Not Sure What To Do...

    It's highly likely that they died of old age. I believe Pictus Catfish live 8-10 years. So if they were 6 years old when you got them, then they would have been 10 years old when they died. Sushi's probably trying to get over the death of his friends (as NavyChief said). But if you want to give...

    Recommended Gph For A Wet/dry Filter?

    I've recently acquired a 75 and I am planning to have a Wet/Dry filter in a 30gal refugium. So, I've been looking online for what the recommended GPH of a Wet/Dry / Trickle Filter is, but I can't seem to find any answers... I did see one site say x6 - x7, but I haven't seen anything to back that...

    75gal Stocking Ideas

    Thanks for the reply! So 79F is the recommended temperature for the tank then? What would you suggest as the stocking order? I’m assuming Cardinals should go in first since they are the smallest, and leave the GBRs and Upside Down Cats for last?

    75gal Stocking Ideas

    I recently got permission to put a tank in the main room of our house, found a great deal on a 75gal and the perfect place to put it. Now I just need to get it cycled. In the mean time I would love to figure out the stocking. This is going to be in a reasonably lit area (a good amount of...
