    Fin Rot Is Back Again

    I tested my water yesterday ammonia 0 nitrites 0 nitrates between 5-10 (color is in between). If it’s not fin rot I don’t know what it possibly could be. His fin edges are curling up and blackened, and he is loosing big pieces of fin at a time. I’ll go try to take some pictures. Could it maybe...

    Fin Rot Is Back Again

    I have been fighting fin rot with my betta for months now. He got it very bad about 4 months ago and I mostly cleared it up with API fin and body cure. By mostly I mean his fins were not dropping off his body anymore but he hasn’t had any regrowth that I’ve noticed. I’m doing the same treatment...

    Is 82 Degrees Going To Harm Adfs?

    Okay thank you both! My betta seems to be loving the higher temps right now I was just worried about my poor frogs frying in there. I’ll keep an eye on it for sure and move my tank (its right next to a poorly insulated window right now) if it starts getting any higher than 82.

    Is 82 Degrees Going To Harm Adfs?

    My tank has a heater that normally stays at 79 but living in south Louisiana is making my tank spike as high as 82 throughout the day. Will that high a temp cause damage to the frogs? It seems to be leveled out at 80/81 for the most part and 82 at the highest spike. When it gets that high I...

    Fin Rot Advice

    My betta got fin rot about a month ago and I treated with just aquarium salt. I caught it very early so I thought all was well and good. About a two weeks ago I upgraded from a 6 gallon to a 10 gallon with 3 African Dwarf Frogs added (not my choice in buying- I took them from a friend because...

    Bacterial Problems In Tank?

    Yes I’m sure it was bacterial. He was losing his fins day by day with black spots on other parts of his fin. I treated him and he seems to be doing better. He was in a smaller 6.5 gallon and the filter on it was awful so I think that’s what caused it. My tank is kept a little warmer at 79 degrees.

    Bacterial Problems In Tank?

    First two are my biggest guy Kermit. Last one is one of my smaller frogs. I think Kermit has it the worst though so if he’s okay the other two should be fine.

    Bacterial Problems In Tank?

    Yes I just went through treatment for fin rot with my betta. It happened before I got the frogs (only about 2-3 weeks earlier though) so I was worried I could be having more bacterial problems. I was wondering if maybe somehow it was transferred to my new tank. My betta just got switched to the...

    Bacterial Problems In Tank?

    Is it normal for all 3 to spontaneously get it though? I’m a bit overly paranoid because I’m new to frogs. I also just had the bacterial problem with my betta. What would be signs of any type of bacterial disease on the frogs if not the bumps?

    Bacterial Problems In Tank?

    This week I got 3 ADF from a friend. They have been doing pretty well from all I can tell. I woke up this morning and went check my tank as usual and noticed raised white dots on my frogs. From a quick google search it seems like a bacterial infection. I’ve been having problems with this in my...

    How To Tell If Adf’s Are Doing Well? & Feeding Concerns

    I’m worried about their weight now. I only have one frog that looks like the proper weight. My other two are much smaller and skinnier. They are a lot skinnier than they look in the pics. I’m going to go get the food you suggest to see if they are more interested than the pellets. I do have...

    How To Tell If Adf’s Are Doing Well? & Feeding Concerns

    Two days ago a friend of mine went and got 3 ADF for her tank. The poor things were being terrorized by her other aggressive fish and the store they came from wouldn’t take them back without something wrong with them. I offered to take them before they were killed so I now have the 3 ADF and my...

    Cory Catfish And Gourami Stocking?

    I’m definitely not ready to try any badis. I know I’m not skilled enough to care for them properly. You definitely have me sold on a sparkling gourami tank though. Your tank is incredible! What types of plants do you have? I’ve always wanted to do a really densely planted tank like that but...

    Cory Catfish And Gourami Stocking?

    It’s not my first tank but I am still very new to fish keeping. I currently have a 6.5g set up with a single male betta. I’ve been having his tank up and running for about 3 months now so I’m familiar with cycling. I had my 10g set up and cycled ready for fish but I ended up taking it down...

    Cory Catfish And Gourami Stocking?

    So my 10g is too small to have just cories in also? If I could keep 5-6 cories by themselves I could make a nice planted tank. I have an empty 10g right now so I’m looking to get that filled with something before getting any bigger tanks.

    Cory Catfish And Gourami Stocking?

    I only have a 10 gallon but would love to have 4-5 Cory catfish and one dwarf gourami. With my tank size is it possible to have that combination work? If not what are my stocking options for either a Cory tank or a dwarf gourami tank? It seems like every site I go to for research has a different...

    Is This Fin Rot?

    So it does look like fin rot? I wasn’t sure if it was or not. His activity level has picked back up So I’m not as worried as I was. I think that 100% water change might have shocked him in some kind of way. Maybe just the stress of the move or maybe I did something wrong. I’m going to start the...

    Is This Fin Rot?

    I made the mistake of doing a 100% water change since my tank was cycled and i thought it would be okay. My betta was completely lifeless laying on a plant when I came home when he normally swims to the front of the tank and all over when I get home. I assumed it was from the water change...

    Stocking Suggestions For A 10 Gallon Tank?

    I think the sparkling gourami are very pretty. How do you even start doing a planted tank? What plants are good for beginners? I’ve never had a planted tank but I think they are beautiful. I’d love to try. Also is there a ratio of males to females for gourami ? Is there anything you’d suggest...

    Stocking Suggestions For A 10 Gallon Tank?

    I’ve only ever owned betta fish and guppies so I don’t know what works well in 10 gallon tanks. I’ve been thinking about just getting a divider and having two bettas but I already have a betta in a separate tank so I’d like something else. I want to stay away from guppies. I really like...

    How To Change Filter Media Without Loosing Bacteria On Cycling Tank?

    My filter cartridge has been used for about a month and a half now and it’s to the point that the filter is struggling to push water through it because it’s so dirty. I’ve tried just cleaning it a bit in tank water but that’s not working. I’m going through the end stages of finishing my cycling...

    Should I Be Doing Water Changes While Doing Fish-in Cycling?

    I’ve been using Tetra Safe start and have read that when using that for fish in cycles I should go 14 days with no water changes. I’ve also read that Dailey water changes should be done to keep ammonia levels from being deadly. Which is the best way to go? I’m working on cycling a 6.5g with only...

    Ammonia Levels Won’t Drop

    Unfortunately my local stores only carried the test kits that go by the the colors. Every ammonia level reading has come up as the darkest “danger” color. My other readings on nitrite and nitrate have come up in safe coloration, although I have not been testing those as often as my ammonia levels.

    Ammonia Levels Won’t Drop

    Hello! I am beyond struggling right now. I just got into keeping fish and unfortunately thought I knew what I was doing from when I was younger but was of course wrong. I now know about cycling but can’t seem to get my ammonia levels down. I started with a male betta in a 2 gallon bowl. He...
