    Pipe Maintenance Affecting Water?

    So about four weeks ago I was changing my water like normal and noticed that there was a slight cloudiness and a white film on the glass. I was a bit concerned but assumed it would right itself with the next water change. To cut a long story short, next water change made it more cloudy. Then...

    Is Euthanasia Best At This Stage?

    My betta has been ill for weeks now. At first we thought he was bored/lethargic so we tried to treat him for that by moving his tank decor around and giving him Indian Almond Leaves but there was no improvement and I saw he had a brown underbelly where he is normally black. A few days ago I QT...

    Contaminated Bloodworms?

    I've just been woken up at 1am by a splash and a flop and had to put one of my fish back in the tank. After doing that and taking a second to panic I've since noticed my tank smells like death, my fish are freaking out and are all so pale they are nearly see through. My guppy females are all...

    70g Stocking Update

    Tank is 70g (280l) and 4ft in length. Other measurements have been hard to get because it's sunken into the stand with a wrap around wooden hood. Moderately planted and kept at 78f. Filters are a canister with the same specs as a Fluval 306 (it's a UK "own brand" filter) and a Fluval U4 internal...

    Fish Or Snail Eggs?

    So far the only eggs laid in (or rather on) my tank have been Nerite eggs that are solid white and wholly ignored. These on the other hand seemed to have markings and as soon as they were covered by the water again, they were spotted by a Guppy who promptly ate them all up like they were...

    Saprolegnia? Columnaris?

    Long story short, I had a fry tank and my fry have been nearly entirely wiped out in 48hrs. Upon removing the bodies, most of them look like they are fluffy. Since they died in such a short window, logic told me it's not decomposition yet. So I googled and it fits the bill of something called...

    Guppy Holding Onto Fry?

    Just wanted to ask for some opinions on one of my girl guppies. All of them came to me pregnant and have been in the tank nearly a month. She was the biggest of the group, both pregnancy wise and length. Almost all of my other girls have dropped and some are even pregnant again but she seems to...

    Colouration Or Velvet?

    My not so little anymore bristlenose Pleco seems to be changing colour. Sometimes he is pitch black almost, other days he turns a medium brown. I was putting it down to changes in mood or lighting but an offhand comment made me want to check in; "he looks like he's covered in sand". Which sent...

    Tank Cycling W/out Filter?

    So I set up an impromptu fry tank when one of my Guppy girls gave birth early and the filter hasn't arrived yet, which is fine, I committed myself to daily PWCs. However when I tested the parameters to see how much ammonia I had, I was a bit surprised to see no ammonia but some nitrites...

    V's Fry Tank

    Seeing as all my Guppy girls are pregnant (no shocker there), and one gave birth last night, I'd keep a diary of sorts for the comings and goings in my fry tank. The plan is, nature will take its course when they give birth but any I spot, I will save and raise in order to sell or trade or give...
