No, not swimbladder.
Just the way they show their personality.
Only need to be careful for when they discover how to spash.
Of course, the...
My goldies do that when they want attention.
Do you use test strips or a liquid test kit?
Sometimes they do that.
Just make sure you keep the water healthy.
Can you post a picture?
It could be a genetic issue.
How long have you had the tetra?
What type of meds are you using?
When a tank is cycling, usually you'd want to do daily water changes.
When using meds, you may...
Is it the white bump on the edge of his fin?
My fish get those on occasion. No need to medicate or quarantine. Just make sure you keep the water...
I have not seen that before, but if it isn't damaging the tissue and the tail is growing, it could be just healing. I would just keep the water...
Those do look like assassin snail eggs.
I hope all goes well.
Keep us informed.
I generally don't recommend any salt or chemicals until figuring out what the cause is. It usually causes unnecessary stress which can weaken the...
What food do you use and have they changed their recipe?
How long have you had her?
Glad to hear all is working out.
See ya 'round!
Oftentimes, when a fish becomes pale, it is due to stress.
At this point, keep an eye on her.
Not only is she fighting the fungus, but the...
Hi GopiPriya and welcome to Fishlore!
I'm sorry to hear your mollie is a bit under the weather.
Can you give us some details about the size tank,...
Hi OneEvilChicken and welcome to Fishlore!
You can add the plants at any time.
The types of plants depend on the look you want. The amount also...
Welcome to Fishlore!
I don't have that set-up but it doesn't say what type of filter they use.
They just say D and E cartridges. I...
Hi redbuttonone and welcome to Fishlore!
Has your CO2 reading changed at all?
Your suspicion sounds fair.
I couldn't say for sure. Maybe you...
Glad you were able to figure it out.
I noticed there was no rhizome, but thought maybe your thumb was covering it.
If you find anubias at Petco,...
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.
If your nitrates are 0, your tank is most likely not cycled.
How often do you change your water and...
I'm sorry to hear your girl is ill.
Did this start before you left for the week or after you came back?
Did you have anyone stop by to feed them...
Hi Felurian and welcome to Fishlore!
Sorry to hear that your little guys might be ill.
Please post your ammonia, nitrite and nitrate readings so...
Try it with the numbers you have first.
If all are getting along well and you feel you have a good balance, leave it.
Do you have live plants in...
Don't worry about the nitrites being 0. When your tank is cycled, they will always be 0.
It looks like your fish has gas.
He's probably been gulping air due to the ammonia in the water. Sometimes they just gulp air anyway....
Share a pic?
Well worth it if you do. The fish love it and live plants help balance the water chemistry.
Java Fern, Anubias, Wisteria and Anacharis (if you...
You have room to up those schools to 10 each.
Will you have live plants?
Sorry that he's a nipper.
The article is very unsure of their theory.
Breeding and raising goldfish myself for 20 years, I can tell you...
Can you post a picture?
Glad for the little help I could offer.
Not necessarily a species only tank, but since they are a bit on the aggressive side and they prefer...
I can't think of any for a 50 gallon tank.
I'm not sure how Cories would handle the Saulosis and the ones that come to mind need larger tanks....
I'm glad she's ok.
Sometimes fish just have funny little quarks.
One of my goldies used to like to sleep with a pebble in his mouth. It was...
I would say to forget the Polits and go with a school of synodontis.
The Polits are too aggressive.
Saulosi - 2m-6fm
Synodontis - no less than 5...
She's a beautiful fish and that is a perfect name for her!
Thank you for the picture!
They do love anacharis, but I can't find any for sale around here. A lot of states banned it because it is such an invasive plant.
Hi Pikaranchu and welcome to Fishlore!
Yes, fish-in cycling is very dangerous and inhumane. Most people, myself included, end up doing it...
I'm glad to help!
I only feed this food and sometimes some fresh veggies.
I have a garden outside and started throwing some torn bits of dandelion...
How big is the tank, what kind of lighting do you have and what is the temperature?
Also, what fish do you have in the tank and do you use any ferts?
It's been a while since you posted this. How is she now?
Maybe she swallowed some air before you started watching her.
Or, did she eat something...
Hi Lechocolat and welcome to Fishlore!
It doesn't look like fin rot. Goldies get those spots every now and then.
The only problem I see is the...
Hi VickyB and welcome to Fishlore!
I'm so happy to see that you want to give your babies a healthy diet! I moved away from flakes and pellets...
There are a lot of pages that have slightly different information regarding tank sizes. I stick with the Fishlore information, especially when it...
Can you tell us how old the ones that died were?
Does the package the wafers are in say anything like "promotes clear water"?
I lost fish due to...
Check your tap water.
I suspect your tank is uncycled and the Nitrates are in your tap.
Hi Sammyyy. I'm sorry for your losses.
I see you have a Ram, so your tank must be healthy, but can you please post more information about your...
Hi Harlequin and welcome to Fishlore!
Your stocking list sounds great for a 30 gallon tank, but I see that your tank is only 20 gallons....
There are many different ways to go about CO2.
There are a lot of DIY setups.
Can you post a picture of your tank and list the plants you have...
Both are peaceful fish.
The only problem I see is that they will be competing for the same area of the tank. Both are mid to top dwellers.
It sounds like your tank isn't cycled yet.
You should pick up some Tetra Safe Start and follow the directions on the bottle.
If they were in a mixed tank, they are most likely pregnant.
Platies are almost always pregnant...
