    Heater Shocked And Killed Angelfish?

    Thanks. I did remove it and toss it. That particular heater came with a tank I bought a few weeks ago and since it was a 250 Watts I thought I'd use it. It had a minimum and a maximum line on it so I don't think it was supposed to be submerged but the water was over the top :-( at least when I...

    Heater Shocked And Killed Angelfish?

    I have been doing 50% water changes every Monday for the past year and never had any issue. I use warm water from the tap and put a thermometer in my bucket before I put it into the fish tank to make sure it's the same temperature ( I learned from my very first water change about that big...

    Heater Shocked And Killed Angelfish?

    yes I yes I have been running scenarios through my head of what could have happened and I just feel bad like I failed him. :-( yeah the first thing I thought when I saw the fish floating was where the heck did that come from I don't have any White fish? Then I looked around the tank and...

    Heater Shocked And Killed Angelfish?

    On Monday I did a water change and for the first time I forgot to flip the wall switch off which goes to an outlet with my power surge where everything is plugged in. I did a 50% water change, the water fell way below the heater exposing it to the air while on .When I filled the tank back up...

    Brown Water?!

    Tank is 65 gallon. To be quite honest I have a brand new test kit that I used in the very beginning last year a couple times and since my readings were always spot-on, I've just been changing my water every week and never had an issue until this week. Like I said the only thing I could think of...

    Brown Water?!

    Oh no. I just remembered i put 3 peas in the tank for 3 days. The old angelfish i just got had swim bladder, i was told to give her peas for 3 days. She is doing fine now, so far. Sorry that might have something to do with it...oh boy. My tank is a retirement home of unwanted fish Should I...

    Brown Water?!

    Brown Water?!

    No. I have a large Cholla log that has been in my aquarium since day one a year ago. It's just baffling me why it's turning that color and I'm wondering if anyone else has had that problem using cichlid pellets?

    Brown Water?!

    Bare bottom, angel fish, blue gourami, pearl gourami, honey gourami, and a few fish i'm not sure what they are. I took them in yesterday. Never had anything but a crystal clear aquarium until the feeding of the chiclid pellets.

    Brown Water?!

I changed my water Monday. This morning, Thursday,I noticed my water looking brackish. Does cichlid pellet food change...

    New To Me Pleco

    Well I finally found a local pet store that is an FWL designated local "drop off" for large fish. He will be going in their pond while they have customers who want large Plecos. He was beautiful to watch gracefully swimming, and I think he is extremely happy in his new pond.

    New To Me Pleco

    After weighing the replies here from you trusted members I believe keeping him in a tank especially if he can get up to two feet is mean. I will do some research and find out if there is anyone that has a private pond that would be happy to have him. Thank you everyone for your input I know what...

    Yes the tank he is in is 16 in across the front and he touches it front and back laying down. I'm not very good at measuring but that's how I figured he was that long. Ok. Thank you

    I do agree. He is at least a foot now. He was in the 30 gallon i bought. He is in a 46 gallon bow front now but i feel he needs a much bigger space. I am looking at a 260 gallon tank. Do you think that would be cruel to keep him in?
