    Help Apistogramma with possible hole in the head disease?

    Thank you for your responses! I'm giving him mostly flakes and frozen foods and sometimes when I put cucumber or other vegetables in the tank I'll see him pick on some of that too. I think it's a pretty varied diet. I'll move the females in the quarantaine tank too and just hope this med works...

    Help Apistogramma with possible hole in the head disease?

    Hey thanks for the reply! I'm from the Netherlands and it's almost impossible to get antibiotics here without a doctors recipe. I've bought flagellex, which is actually available from fish stores and on the package it says it's for hole in the head disease. One more question: he's in a...

    Help Apistogramma with possible hole in the head disease?

    Dear all, Today I noticed that my apistogramma cacatuoides male has developed a white spot on his head between the eyes. He's looking rather lethargic and is spending most of his time at the bottom of the tank. Also his mouth is in a half open position all the time. I've never encountered this...

    10 Gallon Stocking Ideas

    I love some of the ideas Cory mentions in this video: Also this forum has a page for fish/invertebrates that can be put in a 10 gallon. I'd suggest you look through it and pick out which fish you really like. Then after that we can help you with the numbers and what can be put together with...

    Question Adding Betta Into Shrimp Tank?

    I'm always suprised when people say betta's are very aggressive. They really aren't it's just up to the owner to make the feel comfortable and they can go along with nearly all community fish/invertebrates without any problems. Where I'm from all betta's in stores are in community tanks with...

    Question Adding Betta Into Shrimp Tank?

    Hi! 1) As said above we can't really predict what will happen. All I can say is that my betta lives with 6 amano's without any problems. Even the small ones I added only 2 weeks ago..he never really cared so I personally think betta's can go with most shrimp, especially amano's which do not...

    okay. Thanks for the information. I'll do 2 water changes a week, 2 salt baths a week and I'll try to find some Lavamisole at my LFS

    Shell Rot And Salt Baths

    I'm doing a water change as we speak. I just used regular table salt as I read that the type of salt doesn't matter much. I did let the water cool after mixing the salt but it was a bit warmer still than the aquariumwater so that might've contributed to his weird behaviour too. Lavamisole is...

    Shell Rot And Salt Baths

    You can see the picture now right? Brown spots on both claws and it's now also starting around his head and under his belly. On his right claw you can see a piece of it's outer shell missing like something took a bite out of it. if you need more pictures let me know.

    Shell Rot And Salt Baths

    Hi! So I noticed brown spots on my crayfish a couple of weeks ago, mainly on his claws. First I did not think too much of it but as it became worse I saw it looked like his outer shell got eaten up slowly. I did some research and I'm pretty sure it's shell rot. I used the salt bath method on...

    At What Point Does School Size Not Matter So Much Or Is Too Much?

    you can use Aqadvisor to estimate how much fish can safely live in your aquarium. It is better than using the one inch per gallon rule which is seriously outdated. School size always matters since the fish you described live in much bigger schools in the wild than you could ever throw in an...

    Show off your fish tank!

    Did some changes to my 50 gallon, also added the melanotaenia praecox (dwarf neon rainbows) and within a week they became one of my favorites, so much fun to see them school and watch them interact with each other.

    55liter Guppy Tank Overstocked?

    If you do not want a million fry in the future you indeed need to remove the males or the females. Most people will go with just males because they're simply prettier. You can try to see if your local fish store wants to take them from you. I wouldn't keep the fry, maybe the most beautiful male...

    You may be right, though this one used to be orange too, their color gets more intense as they grow older (and get the correct nutrients of course)
