    Looking Into Live Plants

    Looks awesome! With the sand/top soil how do you keep it clean of fish poop? Or does it just clean itself? With my gravel I use a gravel vacuum on occasion (1-2x per month) to keep things relatively tidy

    Looking Into Live Plants

    I have had a 10 gallon freshwater tank that's been running for a little over a year. Currently it's stocked with 2 creamsicle lyre-tail mollies and 2 corydoras julii catfish. I have aquarium gravel, an ornament and some plastic plants in there. The past few months I have been noticing this...

    Sick Black Molly

    So based on the photo above I have two female mollies ;D I did the weekly water change yesterday actually and I thought you weren't supposed to change the filter? I ran into a bit of water quality issues doing that in the beginning of my tank and just recently put a sponge in there instead of...

    Sick Black Molly

    Just posted the photo as a single reply so hopefully that works! I keep the tank around 78*F so I'll try raising it a few degrees. I got the fish around the beginning of December so not all that long ago and the store tank was labeled as them being male, I bought both of my black mollies as a...

    Sick Black Molly

    I have a Black Molly that seems to have a recurring problem with being sick. About a month and a half ago I had to treat my whole tank for fungus (the cotton like stuff). I used the API Fungus cure. A week after the tank was cured this same black molly got the fungus again, so I treated the tank...

    Fungus Problem

    Okay here's an update: I went to the pet store today and picked up an API freshwater test kit, some ammonia remover (just in case) and a filter sponge What I've done is put in the filter sponge into my filter and removed the felty filter with the carbon. I tested all the water parameters with...

    Fungus Problem

    Hmmm okay so maybe my filter isn't working properly? And I don't think I can just remove half of my filter. Its one solid pouch with a plastic frame it clips on to and there's a slit in the middle that you pour a little package of carbon into. If I removed half of it it wouldn't clip into the...

    Fungus Problem

    The filters I use are for the silent stream 10 filter and the package says to change them every month. They are a white felty mesh with a pouch in the middle that you pour the carbon in to. I've read about tank cycling and thought it was odd to change the filter (ruining the cycle and all)but...

    Fungus Problem

    I've had a 10 gallon freshwater tank set up for about 2 months now. I've currently got 2 black molly's, a rock shrimp and 2 red mickey mouse platy. Last week I noticed that one of the black molly's had cotton disease. I treated the tank with API fungus cure as per the directions on the package...

    New Freshwater Tank

    I just picked up a 10 gallon Top Fin tank starter kit (heater, filter, light) at Petsmart today. I've got it all set up and running with the appropriate chemicals in the water and everything. I haven't added fish as I understand that it needs to cycle first I have a few questions about it...

    Sick Betta

    Unfortunately after spending the money on the meds I can't afford a test kit (broke student problems). I use Marina Betta pure water which says on the label that it removes chlorines/chloramines and heavy metals from tap water. The fuzzy patch is on his other side but he won't turn around for me...

    Sick Betta

    My Betta is really sick and I need to know if what I am doing will make him better or if there is anything different I can do. I have had him since september and he was always very lively and never had a problem eating food. I keep him in a 2.5 gallon tank at 80F with a light/heater, I do a 20%...

    My Betta is sick please help

    Unfortunately I don't have a test kit or a filter, just a heater. I usually keep my tank at around 80F. Prior to him getting sick I did 25% water changes every week and once a month I did 50% changes once a month. Here's a picture of him, his top fin used to be spread out and his tail used to...
