    How to remove parasites and disease from tank

    I don't want to get into the details here - it's been a long and lengthy thread elsewhere. Basically I am dismantling the tank of death for awhile. I have some nice plants, driftwood and moss balls. If the tank is infected with disease or parasites is there any way to truly rid these things...

    dismantling - need guru advice

    Hoping the Fishlore Rockstars can help me out. (edit - holy moly this is a long post but couldn't figure out how to say it all faster) I wasn't sure whether to put this in the water subtopic, or the fish disease subtopic as I don't know what the what is going on with this tank. I will try to...

    Betta poop (what should it look like?)

    I have had this guy for a few weeks. He is usually super excited to eat and rushes over when I open the hatch. He gobbles anything up instantly. For the last few days he has seemed disinterested in food and hasn't even come over when I get near the tank. I haven't seen him poop in person. I...

    Brown algae everywhere

    I thought my plants were dying because they were turning brown. On closer inspection I realize they are just covered in brown algae! I added an Anubias less than two weeks ago and it's starting to get some spots too. Then just in the last few days I am seeing all the corners of the tank turn...

    White filmy stuff

    *edit "WHITE filmy stuff" I just noticed this in some airline tubing. It's on the stone as well (tubing and stone currently not in use). When I bumped the tubing some sloughed off and is floating around in the tank. Is this normal? I just turned the pump on and it looks like a...

    Stagnant surface issues

    I have a planted 10 gal. Fully cycled. Aqueon filter and hood (it came with incandescents which I've replaced with color max florescents) Current inhabitants are a male betta and 3 Amano shrimp. I have noticed the surface doesn't get much movement from this filter. I tried adding an air stone...

    Buying first Betta - questions

    I have a fully cycled 10 gal with sand substrate, live plants, moss balls and driftwood. (currently no fish, been dosing ammonia daily to keep cycle going) I'd like to add a betta and later some snails and maybe try shrimp (knowing they might get eaten but worth a shot). I have been doing lots...

    Another 10 gal question

    Hi! I have an uninhabited and fully cycled 10 gal with live plants, driftwood and sand. I have had endlers and shrimp in the past. I would like to have a shrimp colony but really want to have bigger fish this time - even if just one. The little guys get so lost in the tank and they're kind of...

    Incandescent bulbs and bubbles

    My hood came with incandescent bulbs. I've ordered some CFL's to upgrade. I just added a bubble stone to the tank and after remembered there was a note in the hood manual that the bulbs aren't recommended for use with bubblers. I'm assuming because of the effervescence on the surface hitting...

    Filter cleaning question

    Quick filter cleaning question. (Sorry to dump this in beginner area, I could swear there was a cleaning/maintenance subforum but I can't find it on the app.) I have a 10 gal tank that's been set up since March (cycled since April) with an aqueon filter. I am going to change my filter cartridge...
