    Is this popeye?

    I put the black moor in the hospital tank for his eye. I thought it was popeye at first, but now I wonder. He has been dosed with Maracyn & Maracyn II. Could this be a tumor? These pics were taken 4 days ago and the eye is even bigger now.

    White cloud after every gravel vac

    I vacumn my 75g tank all most every week. Sometimes I skip a week on purpose, but not to often. Some weeks I take about 50% of the water, other times about 30%, mainly depends on how dirty the gravel is. Within a few hours after vacuming, I have a bacteria bloom causing the water to turn cloudy...

    Sick Gold fish

    Tiny is a small fantail about 2" inches long, nose to tail fin. He was a really tiny guy when we bought him over a year ago. He's always been healthy, active and a voracious eater. About 2 weeks ago I noticed he was always at the bottom of the tank, sitting on the substrate. His respiration...

    Tannin staining tank glass

    I boiled my driftwood numerous times until I wasn't getting much brown water. I added the driftwood to my tank and after a week or so the water starts turning brown. I'm running a Fluval 405 with carbon & a Tetra 30-60 with carbon. 50% water changes clear it up, but the upper corners of the tank...

    Hospital tank empty, now what?

    As some may know, I recently upgraded from a 20g tank to a 75g tank. I left my cycled 20g up to treat the Professor, a bubble eye that had fin rot. He is healed and now in the big tank with his buddies. The 20g is still up, but fishless. I plan on getting a couple loaches to keep my current...

    Question Tank cycling with media from cycled tank

The 20g tank has an Aquatech 30-60 and I'm going to use that filter along with a 2nd Aquatech 30-60 until I can afford a quality...

    I currently have a 20g tank with an Aquascape 30-60 HOB filter. There are 3 average sized goldfish, 1 weather loach & 1 small pleco.

    20 Gallon Tank Bubble Eye has pimples that explode

    OK, maybe that title was a bit dramatic. We were given an established tank with fish. I didn't want them, but was overruled by the wife. However, once they were here, I got really attached to the fish and enjoy having them. We have a Pleco, Weather Loach, 2-Fantails and 2 that I'm not sure...
