    Fish And Tank(s)!

    OP please do some research on the nitrogen cycle and how fish produce a harmful chemical called ammonia. Get some water test kits to test your tanks so that you can see for yourself. It would be like us living in an invironment where the air constantly burned your skin. I can assure you that...

    Film On Top Of Water In Betta Tank

    That great to hear! I’m glad. I was recently having the same problem with floating plants blocking the flow.

    Should Retail Stores Such As Wal-mart Get Rid Of Their Live Fish Section?

    I feel that even if an employee was knowledgeable, most of the Wal-Mart shoppers don’t/won’t hear what the employees has to say. There’s is too much contradictionary information out there and let’s face it if a bunch of people say it’s ok to put a gold fish in a 10 gallon and 1 knowledgeable...

    Picky Angel Fish

    Mine didn’t like pellets at first either, they would eat them and spit them out. So I started soaking them until they got used to them. Now they’ll eat them without having to soak them. I give mine a variety of things similar to Katie although I’ve never tried the earthworms.

    R.i.p Mr. Meeseeks. Hello _____?

    Rip mr.meeseeks he was a beautiful fish. You won’t be able to tell his exact age, unless the store you got him from knows anything. However, it takes bettas a year to be full grown. If he’s still on the small side than he’s under a year. If he’s active still than he’s not old yet. Beyond that I...

    Betta Jars?

    I would do it in the way I saw a YouTuber do it. A 20 gallon or larger tank for the females to live in a sorority together. And a 20 gallon long tank divided into 5 gallon sections for the males. And at least another 20 gallon for the babies to grow out in. I would remove individual fry as...

    Where To Buy Gourami Online

    I’ve done it, it’s not too bad. I ordered plants from Yunney, but he was on vacation, so it was definitely a test in patience. The wetspot is an actual store in Portland though, as opposed to a hobbyist, so it might be a bit easier to order from them.

    Where To Buy Gourami Online

    Aquabid has some. The only thing about aquabid is that you need to be careful about who you buy from read reviews. Also when buying off aquabid you settle payment privately with seller after winning.

    Tiny White Bugs

    Yes it’s a cyclops, they are very small about the size of a grain of sugar. I just have a good camera and the black background helps them show up better. If they swim in jerky movements kind of like squid they are cyclops. I’ve seen many posts on here with people having them and most are in...

    Betta Fish Noob Question I

    Thank you I will do that. I pulled up a rock the other day and he wedged himself in between it which might be how he damaged his fins. I will do a water change tomorrow and fix it so he can’t do that anymore. I will put the betta hammock back in, but he prefers to hang off the the floating...

    Betta Fish Noob Question I

    Haha I think it a common title to make on here. Ya he doesn’t really use it, he prefers to smash his face into the floating plants. I think I may skip on the salt for now and start daily water changes. I’m not sure about what anti bacterial medication I should even give him as I don’t like...

    Betta Fish Noob Question I

    I’m not new to keeping fish, but I am new to keeping bettas. A little background info before I get to my question. We’ve had our betta for about two weeks now. I transferred media over from my main tank over to our air driven corner filter and assumed the tank was cycled. We ended getting a...

    Hey just curious, but do they look like this? I found one of these guys the other day in our Betta tank. I included both pics so you could get an idea of its size. I also found what looks like a tiny worm:

    Advice On What To Do With This Snail

    I thought I’d update on my snail; if anything just to be helpful haha. Peanutbutter the snail (our other snails name is jelly lol) hasn’t reattached to its shell as far as I can tell, but it can pretty much do all the same things any normal snail can do at this point. However, it really couldn’t...

    My Daughters First Tank!

    Lol she really did pick all that stuff out herself. Besides the plants which I pulled from my tank for her. She picked the dragonstone out at our LFS because she liked the name. She wanted black sand though and I told her it would be cheaper if we used stuff we already had. I think it’s cute she...

    Ya maybe when she gets a at least a 20 gallon and has way more plants, but I didn’t think so. I’m going to look into the polyurethane.

    Would that work in a 10 gallon?

    My Daughters First Tank!

    That’s interesting I’ll look into that. Thank you! It’s her tank and she picked out the decorations and background herself, it would be sad to to have to tell her no on the cave.

    My Daughters First Tank!

    I thought I’d share I think it turned out pretty good. Its a 10 gallon with a black background, eco complete substrate, (we had it already so we used it) some dragonstone, and I’m not sure what the wood is I’ve had it a while. For plants we have Anubias Nana, Anubias Nana pinto, Narrow leaf Java...

    Dropsy? Or Fat?

    That might be too much. They only need about 4-5 brine shrimp a day and only 2-3 blood worms each. You might also want to introduce some frog pellets in for some added nutriention. They’re opportunistic eaters in nature so they will stuff themselves. You can target feed with a pipette if you...

    Dropsy? Or Fat?

    Definitely watch how much she eats though adfs can get fat. Females are only supposed to be about 25% larger than males. Here is a picture of an obese adf: And here is one who is ripe with eggs: I hope this is helpful

    Dropsy? Or Fat?

    Your frog looks like a healthy female to me. They tend to look much chunkier than the males. If you can see behind the armpits males have little nodes there which appears that your frog does not have, so there’s nothing wrong it’s just a lady frog.

    Treating The Main Tank With Metronidazole

    You would have to buy enough medicine to treat the entire tank. It would be cheaper to treat a smaller tank than your 50 gallon. I’d move the fish to a quarantine, but you can soak food in metronidazole and treat your main tank that way as well.

    Fish Worm!

    Right now just two mystery snails and two female angel fish. I’ve been debating on rehomeing one of the angels because they are a couple and terrorize anything I put in there with them. I’d really like a school of sterbai cory cats. For now Im just enjoying collecting plants

    How Can I Get Rid Of Cloudy Water?

    Cloudy water usually means a bacterial bloom which is a good thing if you’re cycling your tank. It usually goes away when your tank is done cycling.

    Fish Worm!

    I don’t think that’s a Camallanus worm. You would have seen more in the belly when you cut the fish open. I’ll admit I have no experience with Camallanus worms personally, but I do know that they are described as being thread like. Camallanus worms are actually white in color but they turn red...

    Are you sure that came out of the fish? The color seems too dark to be a camallanus worm. @bizaliz3 ?

    Angelmania Fish - Yes Or No?

    Apparently they have changed it, but yes that is weird. I wonder why they only offer free shipping with money order or check only?

    Angelmania Fish - Yes Or No?

    I’ve never ordered from angel mania, but from what I’ve heard they only accept money orders unless they’ve changed that. They often do give you extra angels though. They do have some pretty ones

    Angelfish Sick?

    I understand, you could use a plastic tub if you need to as long as it’s food grade and strong enough to hold water. Having that back up will take some stress off your shoulders. Good luck

    Angelfish Sick?

    I’ll leave the diagnosing to @Aquaphobia but I do recommend a quarantine tank if you can manage it, doesn’t need to be very big 10 gallons or less doesn’t need to be an expensive setup either. It’s a way more efficient to medicate especially if the meds are expensive or if they mess with your...

    Just Out Of Curiosity, Do Sterbai Corydoras Eat...

    Ya that’s interesting they do sift through the sand to find food and spit the sand out. My angel fish will eat the poop and spit it out and a second later forget it’s not food and try to eat it again and again lol.

    Just Out Of Curiosity, Do Sterbai Corydoras Eat...

    Haha! I don’t know about that, but they do tend to root around a bunch maybe they’re causing the poo to fall deeper into the gravel?

    Anybody Knows What This Plant Is?

    Advice On What To Do With This Snail

    I got a much better picture just now and it’s worse than I thought he seems pretty content in the box for now I put in some floaters for some shade but I think it’s annoying the poor thing that it can’t climb up and get them.

    Advice On What To Do With This Snail

    About two weeks ago my little wild type snail stopped being active. I thought that something happened to scare it and it was retreating for a bit to heal. It stopped going up the glass and looking for food and was either very tightly in its shell or it kinda just hung out with its face poked...

    Do Mystery Snails Eat Red Root Floaters?

    Automatic Lights With Day, Night, & Lights-out?

I’ve adjusted the daylight colors to my liking and I have it on the timer so that it ramps up over a 20 min...
