    Friends/family/whatever Keeping Fish Incorrectly

    I was just wondering if anyone else has this issue with people they know keeping fish but not knowing/caring enough about them to really take care of them. For example: My ex boyfriend was there when I got my 20 gallon and decided that he wanted to get a 10 for himself. No problem there, 10...

    I Lost My Bichir Today

    I'm so sorry. I recently lost one of my cories and it broke my heart (and the other cory was also heartbroken), but the good thing is that now we know how to fix our mistakes and prevent them from happening again.

    20 Gallon Stocking, Lots Of Questions

    If you can you should definitely get both. I have both and I love watching both of them. One of my danios sometimes likes to pretend she's a cory and will swim with them.

    Help My Glofish Danio Is Swimming Weirdly

    First off I'm sorry if I seem a little panicked, it's because I am. I was scrubbing algae off the glass with a toothbrush and everyone looked normal. Then one of my fish starts swimming on her side, twirling as she swims, doing all sorts of weird stuff. My first thought was swim bladder...

    I Just Euthanized My Fish

    I don't really know how to start this. As the title suggests I just had to euthanize one of my fish and I know a lot of people are like "who cares? It's just a fish!" but they're not just fish to me. I call them my children, I talk to them, even throughout the whole process of euthanasia I was...

    55 Gallon Tank 55 Gallon Stocking Ideas

    I've always loved how they have such personality. Every time I go to the pet store they follow me around the tank. And I didn't know some of them like to be pet, one of my bettas sometimes likes it, but he can be moody so sometimes he wants to be loved on and sometimes he comes and bites me.

    55 Gallon Tank 55 Gallon Stocking Ideas

    After looking at a bunch of other fish, I think I'm going to stick with the blood parrot. I don't know what it is, but it's just something about their cute little faces that makes them so cute to me.

    55 Gallon Tank 55 Gallon Stocking Ideas

    I think that would look really pretty, but I have to find something to live with my danios since I already have them. I haven't thought about them. I'll definitely have to look at them.

    55 Gallon Tank 55 Gallon Stocking Ideas

    I've been looking around at some different things and I still haven't decided exactly which fish I would want. Could I maybe try electric blue acara? And if I did decide on a firemouth or a blood parrot, which one would be better?

    55 Gallon Tank 55 Gallon Stocking Ideas

    I've thought about maybe doing angels, but I was worried the danios might nip or stress them with all their zipping around. I definitely want a dwarf gourami, but I'm planning on that for another tank, so I wasn't going to do that in this one. I haven't looked at opaline gourami, I'll have to...

    55 Gallon Tank 55 Gallon Stocking Ideas

    So I somehow managed to get my parents to let me get another 55 so I can move my giant danios from the 20 (I was a dummy and didn't do enough research before getting them). I've had a couple ideas, but I'm very indecisive so I keep changing my mind on which fish to get. I was thinking about 6...

    Question Is My Glofish "pregnant" ?

    She's slimmed down since last night, so I think she may have just been constipated. It was the green zebra danio that I thought was looking fatter and the red zebra danio I thought may have been male. I forgot one of my skirt tetra is a Glofish too, so sorry if that was confusing.

    Question Is My Glofish "pregnant" ?

    I noticed she was getting rounder a while ago, but recently she's gotten really round. At first I thought it was just constipation, but she's been pooping like normal and it hasn't gone down yet. I have another Glofish, (I know I need more than two, I'm working on moving fish to different tanks...

    Best Food To Feed Betta Fish

    My bettas actually don't like bloodworms all that much, but they love their pellets. I feed them omega one betta buffet (the pellets, I think there's a flake one too but I don't feed them flakes), and hikari betta bio gold and they seem to love those.

    Help Is It Time To Euthanize?

    Right now she's in a heated and filtered 2 gallon because it was the only spare I had for quarantine. Water temperature stays at about 78 degrees Fahrenheit and I'm about to test the water when I get home so I'll let you know in a few hours. Thanks for your help.

    Help Is It Time To Euthanize?

    This is the third time I've posted about this fish on here and it seems like every time she gets a little better she gets even worse. She's a bronze cory and she's had fin rot for about 3 or 4 months now. At first it was affecting her tail fin, then her dorsal, now her pectoral fins. She's still...

    Question Will My Goldfish Be Ok In This Tank?

    I have a bottle I got last week for my other tank and I put some in yesterday when I set the tank up. Yes, I do have a test kit and I was planning on testing the water every day or every other day. I don't have a python as they are kind of pricey and I doubt it would fit my sink, but I do have...

    Question Will My Goldfish Be Ok In This Tank?

    Ok, thanks. I have some tetra safe start, but I haven't put it in because I didn't know if I could with the fish in there. I tested and I have 0 nitrite, 0 nitrate, and .25 ammonia and ph is 7.6

    Question Will My Goldfish Be Ok In This Tank?

    I would like to preface this by saying I know about the nitrogen cycle and I know I should have waited and I know I'm kind of an idiot. Anyways what happened was I fell in love with a goldfish I saw and my mom knew how much I wanted him. I have a 55 gallon tank set up, but it's not cycled yet...

    Question Changing Gravel To Sand

    I did it and everyone is doing great other than being mad at me for moving them lol. The sand looks so much better than the gravel did, way more natural and of course my cories and kuhli love it. Thank y'all for helping me with this.

    Question Changing Gravel To Sand

    Thank you! And it's pool filter sand. Will the tub be ok for them if it's not cycled water? I could put some of the tank water in it if that would help. Sorry for all the questions, I just really love my fish and I want to do it whatever way is best for them.

    Question Changing Gravel To Sand

    I used to have some of that ugly blue gravel in my tank and I got tired of looking at it, and I have cories and a kuhli (I know she needs friends, we're getting them later) so I thought some sand would make it look nicer. So I bought some sand and it came today and if possible I would like to...

    Fin Rot Won't Go Away

    I have a bronze cory that got fin rot on her tail fin a while ago (maybe a month or so), and I separated her from everyone else and put her in a 2g quarantine tank. I know it's not the best size for her, but it is filtered and heated and it's all I have for a hospital tank. Anyways I ordered...

    Question How To Euthanize

    I don't know about melafix, but I've heard of people using clove oil with success and if I remember correctly the fish died peacefully in about an hour. I know they sell it at my walmart for about $6. There is also a product that I can't remember the name of but it is made specifically for...

    Help What Is Wrong With Cory Catfish's Fin?

    Just a little update: I am about to move her to a quarantine tank today, I would have liked to do it sooner but I was waiting on a heater and the water in that tank was way too cold without one. I've read a lot that going with a bare bottom is the best for a qt so that's what I've done. She is...

    Help What Is Wrong With Cory Catfish's Fin?

    This sounds like it might be the way to go, especially with me being so paranoid about giving antibiotics I'd rather not give her something if I'm not sure about it. Do you know where I might be able to find some?

    Help What Is Wrong With Cory Catfish's Fin?

    I do currently have one that is a bit nippy towards my other fish in the tank, though I've never seen him bother my catfish, he could have bitten her while I was gone or asleep or whatever. I have a new tank being set up and cycled to move him into so he won't attack my other fish.

    Help What Is Wrong With Cory Catfish's Fin?

    That could be possible, but wouldn't that bother my other catfish as well? Thanks for your suggestions, I really appreciate them. I've read somthing about salt and cories not going too well together, though and maybe I'm just paranoid but I am a bit scared that if I do something it could cause...

    Help What Is Wrong With Cory Catfish's Fin?

    I do think it's probably fin rot, I really don't know why else her fin would be deteriorating. I check on her multiple times and it seems like every time more of her tail is missing. I am still a bit confused on why it's turning dark, though. My other catfish's tail is perfectly in tact, no...

    Help What Is Wrong With Cory Catfish's Fin?

    So last night I was checking on my fish and inspecting all of them as you do, and I noticed one of my Cory catfish had a weird looking tail. At first I thought I was seeing things, but her caudal fin looks like part of it is missing and it's getting darker. She's been laying on the bottom of...
