    Help Bolivian Ram Sexing?

    Help How To Get Fish To Eat New Food?

    So I've realized that I've always been feeding my fish flakes and sometimes blood worms. I wanted to try out feeding Omega One Mini Pellets to my fish, especially because I've recently bought bolivian rams and read that they like them a lot. It's been almost a week now and when I try feeding...

    Help (identify This?) Disease Has "eaten" My Fish From The Outside!

    Well, do you think I should just euthanize it soon? It hasn't improved since the time I first noticed symptoms. by "sloughing off" do you mean that it's going away? It doesn't seem that way to me.. If not, unfortunately I think it's best I euthanize so theres no chance of it spreading to my...

    Help (identify This?) Disease Has "eaten" My Fish From The Outside!

    I need help identifying this disease that my dwarf gourami has had for about 2 months. I was told by a forum member that the disease was Lymphocystis, and that I should keep him until the disease affects him badly. Well when this forum member helped me out, the disease originally appeared as...

    Question How To Feed Freeze Dried Brine Shrimp?

    I'll try that, thank you. Someone else said that they put a piece in a cup that has the aquarium water in it, then they pour a little bit at a time. That worked quite well for me :shame:

    Question How To Feed Freeze Dried Brine Shrimp?

    I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, but how do you guys prepare and feed your freeze dried brine shrimp to your fish? I originally dropped the whole cube thinking that it would break apart on it's own but I realize that's very wrong. I have the omega one freeze dried cubes and...

    Help Strange Growth/lump On Gourami!

    Sorry for not replying until now. Thank you very much. I think I will keep the fish for now. But I cannot tell if it's getting better or worse... the large lump is no longer bulging out as much, and it seems that theres a tiny hole or dot in the middle. I'll attach a pic. What do you think?

    Help Strange Growth/lump On Gourami!

    Thank you. If things do get worse I may euthanize it. But I should not be worried about it spreading correct? I should just try to keep my water levels under control?

    Help Strange Growth/lump On Gourami!

    Yes he does seem pretty bloated. It's hard to take a good picture because he moves around a lot, and he seems to act healthy. (Swims a lot, comes to the surface for food, etc.) Should I possibly try treating with melafix as well as do water changes? And what do you think about aquarium salt...

    Stocking Suggestions - 36g Tank

    I did realize that.. he's probably much more than a few years because I got him when I started the tank, unfortunately I did not know how much they grew since I was pretty young. I wish pet stores would be honest and point out on how much they grew before someone would buy it. And where do you...
