    My Panda Cories had babies!

    We've got seven danios, 10 harlequin rasboras, and six horned nerite snails in the tank with them. They're smaller than our snails! Thank you so much!! I don't know why I'm so excited and happy about it haha

    My Panda Cories had babies!

    Today my fiancé and I found four teeny tiny panda cories in our tank! They're so cute and so small! At max they're half an inch long. We weren't trying to breed them, but apparently the miracle of life can't be stopped. However, our tank is only a 20gl and this brings our number of cories to 11...

    Columnaris?

    Earlier this week we noticed white stringy stuff on the side of our tank. The next day it was all over the gravel of our aquarium. We had a panda Cory pass away about a day after that. Earlier in the year we had an outbreak of columnaris, but mostly saved our tank. We removed the infected fish...

    Panda Corys

    This is a picture of my gravel, is it too rough for them?

    Panda Corys

    Thank you! As a side note, would it be difficult to replace our current gravel with sand? Would that disrupt the ecosystem to take everything out and start over? Boyfriend is wanting fertilized substrate too, I haven't looked into it but it fertilized sand a thing?

    Panda Corys

    We have gravel, which looks smooth to me but I'm not a fish so I don't know haha. Before we put the heater in the temperature was around 74-75F, so I can just turn that off. Parameters are 0, 0, 20

    Panda Corys

    We're looking into adding some Panda Corys into our 20 gallon long. We've got seven danios and ten harlequin rasboras in the tank along with a few nerite snails. I'm hearing that they're very sensitive fish, is this true? We do weekly water changes and vacuum the gravel, but that's about as much...

    Totally baffled

    We treated with tri-sulfa last week and it hasn't gotten any worse or hasn't spread to other fish. How do I know when he's cured?

    Totally baffled

    20gl, all water parameters perfect, temp 75F We have a long finned leopard danio with his mouth stuck open. He's been like this for two weeks now, and it's not getting worse, he's swimming completely normal, and he's eating just fine. None of my other danios have been affected. We had an...

    Feeling defeated, desperately seeking advice

    Good news! It turns out what I thought was columnaris is just a case of lockjaw. Our danios decided our cherry shrimp are snacks and he went and got his jaw stuck. We're going to give him another week of rest with just the danios in the tank and then go ahead and start trying to add new fish to...

    Feeling defeated, desperately seeking advice

    Haha thank you. I'm now thinking it might not be columnaris that my danio caught; instead of the mouth disappearing it almost look like there's a bump on it. They're still active and eating so that's a good sign. Either way, we're treating with tri-sulfa and hoping for the best. We're still...

    Feeling defeated, desperately seeking advice

    I don't have a heater in my tank because I read that they like cooler temps so it floats around 72-76 degrees Thank you again for y'alls advice. I know it's my fault for not checking the bloodfins thoroughly or putting them in a QT. It looks like the columnaris has spread to our danios. We...

    Feeling defeated, desperately seeking advice

    They do know. In the beginning they would tell me all the numbers, now that I've gotten to know them they either give me a thumbs up or tell me when something is wrong. Today I specifically asked for ammonia reading. Right now I'm just desperately tired of constantly losing fish. I think I'm...

    Feeling defeated, desperately seeking advice

    I do appreciate everyone's concern. We need to invest in our own testing kit. I trust our LFS 100%, they have had no qualms about telling us something is off in the past

    Feeling defeated, desperately seeking advice

    While we don't have a testing kit of our own, we get our water checked every week at our LFS which uses the API water testing kit. They told me today that ammonia is 0 and that nitrates and nitrites are "well within desired parameters." They know me by name now, and they're just as baffled about...

    Feeling defeated, desperately seeking advice

    I'm not sure if I'm posting to the right forum, but I'm seeking general advice and encouragement. We've had the worst luck. We feel miserable and defeated. We set up our tank in early June and we ignorantly thought it was going to be a piece of cake. We set up our tank, we did a fishless cycle...

    Considering Harlequin Rasboras

    I have definitely learned my lesson on using a quarantine tank. It was a horrible experience and we really thought we were going to lose our whole tank. Are there any diseases or infections that rasboras are prone to that I should know about? Our tank water is consistently healthy so I'm not...

    Considering Harlequin Rasboras

    Hello all. My boyfriend and I have been reading about rasboras and I was hoping for some opinions. We've got a 20g long right now with six danios (three are long-finned) and an accidental female guppy. We introduced a school of bloodfin tetras a few weeks ago but they had columnaris and had to...

    Stocking ideas freshwater aquarium

    Okay we have done a complete re-do of our plans haha. Again, right now we've got three zebra danios, three long finned leopard danios, and one baby guppy. The plan now is to add a school of bloodfin tetras and a school of diamond tetras. Does that sound right? Any obvious mishaps I'm missing...

    Considering Golden Rams

    I have fallen in love with golden rams and am very interested in getting some. We've got six danios and a baby guppy, and we're planning on adding some tetras in the future. We've got a 20lg. Really I'm just looking for some information on them. Do they need a school, or certain types of water...
