    What is this ?

    I got me some Metro from a Vet. near the house. He sold me some 250mg tablets. I crushed six of them and threw them in the tank, I'll continue to treat for three days and see what happens. I never had Hexamita before, am I doing this right?

    What is this ?

    I'm going to get the first I can get my hands on, but would prefer Metro. I'm convinced it is hole in the head. Really sad, I have this guy with me for about ten years already, I'd hate to lose him. Going to do everything in my power to save him.

    What is this ?

    This is a green Severum, it has some white stuff on the body. I have tried treating for fungus with no results. It looks like white spikes sticking out from the body. Can someone tell me what it is and how to treat it? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hello Everyone

    Hello Everyone

    I'm not a new member, but have not been here for a while. Yes, still have my tanks and fish. Glad to be back.

    Can I have more bottom feeders?

    Either that or re home the pleco. I think it will outgrow the tank, if it hasn't already.
