    Snail might be dying

    I'm trying to figure out if the nerite snail I got for my 3-gallon betta tank might be dying. Ammonia: 0.25 (a false reading as my 10 gallon is also this way and has been for months), Nitrite: 0, Nitrate: 5. He was allowed to float in his bag for about 30 minutes for temperature adjustment, was...

    New fry, unsure who mated?

    I have a 10-gallon tank with a number of fish in it and just found a small orange fry. I'm completely lost as to who may have mated. There is a female swordtail, a male mickey mouse platy, a male yellow snakeskin guppy, a male(?) pink tuxedo guppy, a female albino cory, and a female peppered...

    Small black bugs in 3 gallon betta tank

    I went to do a water change and clean up any debris on the bottom of my betta tank today and found these small, black bugs (dead, from what I could see) on the gravel. The newest thing in the tank is some Monte Carlo I had shipped to me but I didn't see any bugs on it when I got it. Not sure...

    Monta Carlo on driftwood?

    I got a small bundle of Monte Carlo to go in my betta tank but I'm getting mixed messages about how to go about placing it. Can I attach it to Mopani wood with a thread and have it sort of carpet on that? Or does it have to be in the substrate? I have sand substrate and am working on getting...

    Fuzz on Albino Cory Catfish How Can I Save Him?

    I have a 10-gallon tank that was mostly cycled but still has a very stubborn 0.25 ammonia level that won't drop. I check the levels every other day and add Prime every other day with 30-50% water changes once or twice a week depending on the nitrate levels (nitrite is at 0, nitrates are between...

    What is this fuzzy stuff on my tank?

    I have a 3-gallon tank that's still cycling with a betta, 2 nerite snails (I might move one to my 10-gallon because they make a mess), and an Amano shrimp and some dwarf sag. Ammonia is at 0.25, nitrite bounces from 0 to 0.25, nitrates are between 5 and 10. I do water changes every other day and...

    Male guppy laying on bottom of tank

    I've had three guppies in my 10-gallon tank for well over 4-5 months and one died mysteriously (found him stuck to the filter overnight) while another I noticed was laying on the bottom and on top of decor gasping before dying this morning. The third guppy is now doing the same despite having...

    New subwassertang questions

    I got two small one-inch bundles of subwassertang for my 3-gallon betta tank so I could get some shrimp and have a place for them to hide from my betta if needed. And I was wondering if there are any suggestions on how to keep it still? I want to attempt to get it to carpet on the sand substrate...

    Trouble cycling

    I have a three-gallon and a ten-gallon tank. Both were set up and "cycled" or so I thought before fish were added. When fish started dying in the ten-gallon, I discovered that I had been missing a test that looked at ammonia (I was new to fish and oblivious that the 5-in-1 test strips missed one...

    Carpeting plant suggestion 3 gallon

    I have a three-gallon tank with a betta and two nerite snails but was hoping to be able to introduce a ghost shrimp or two to better help me clean the bottom of the tank. I have sand substrate and a number of decorations but was thinking that I should offer the shrimp more places to hide should...

    Brown/transparent and black aquarium plants

    I got three aquarium plants from Petsmart a little over a week ago and the leaves have been changing color and I'm trying to figure out if they're dying or if I should be trimming the leaves or changing anything. Two are in my 10 gallon tank. An anubis and amazon sword. The amazon sword is...
