    Obese Rosy Tetra

    I think the other is a male...I wonder if she lays eggs every once in a while and they get eaten? How would I know if she were about to lay?

    Obese Rosy Tetra

    I have one obese Rosy Tetra in a community tank. I do not overfeed and my other fish are normal. This growth has been long term and did not happen quickly - this fish acts normal but wow...it's fat. Any suggestions or does this look like something other than a fat fish? I can't really put the...

    Ram Pair Aggression

    I have a breeding pair of German blue Rams alone in a 12.5 gallon tank. They currently have many 5 day free swimming fry and were excellent parents, taking turns and never eating young. Today the female decided to be very aggressive to the male. I out him in a breeder box to hang out for a while...

    German Ram Fry Spots

    I don't think I've lost fry and they each only have about one white spot. The tank temperature is currently 88.5. I read ich dies at 89.5 but I'm worried about having it that hot for these little babies. Any suggestions on max temp for ram babies?

    German Ram Fry Spots

    I have about 100 free swimming fry (day 4 of free swimming) and notice they all have at least 1 white speck in them. I have previously had some ich in this tank and I'm wondering if it is ich or if ram Fry typically display white speckles as they grow. If it may be ich, can I use ich-x in a tank...

    Help Sexing Crs

    I'm new to Crystal red shrimp and would like help sexing a few of mine so I can get better at it myself. First off, are these old enough to sex? I think the first image is female, second male, and I can't tell with third and fourth. Thoughts? Thanks!

    Badis Curling And Acting Weird

    Thank you - definitely looks like whirling disease. I've never seen it either but the timeline of it sounds right and all symptoms are same. Very strange!

    Badis Curling And Acting Weird

    Hi, one badis in my tank has been having a rough two weeks. Isolated, dark in color, not eating well. I've done some isolation and various medications as well as solitary live brine shrimp feedings. Now he seems to be having involuntary body curling and tipping over, not able to freely swim and...

    Pea Puffers Kill Dogs?

    I have an open top timeless tank. Occasionally fish jump out and get eaten by the dogs. Recently I had a pea puffer disappear and he may have gotten dumped outside with the aquarium water. Question...will a captive breed pea puffer kill a dog if eaten? Answers from expert with knowledge of...

    Ada Aquasoil Disaster

    It is still very much in pebble form and not a mud. This is the Amazonia II Powder form, I should have mentioned that. Is it possible some batches are just bad? My friends who use Aquasoil were shocked at how the water looked from filling my not rinsed, DSM tank.

    Ada Aquasoil Disaster

    Filling with plastic wrap covering the bottom and the carbon in filter helps. The cloudiness is still there a bit but looks like a week or so will fix it and let plants root more. My original cloudiness was more like soup so now I can see through the tank and things are much better. Edit: 3...

    Ada Aquasoil Disaster

    Cloudiness didn't clear in 4 days. Washed it and it's the same as when I didn't wash it. The filter is small and not agitating the soil. I also tried leaving it with no filter. I'm going to layer black sand on top of the plastic layer on fill doesn't work. Maybe the issue is that it's a nano...

    Ada Aquasoil Disaster

    I did a dry start with carpeted plants. Once I flooded (very slowly) the cloudiness even with rooted plants persisted so long I decided to rip out the plants and wash the Aquasoil as a last resort. Now I am flooding again and the water is so dark I can't see through it. Even 20% water changes...

    Fuzzy Spot On Cory Head

    He and 2 other Cory's have been in there for a few months happy. Update is bad...didn't make it through the night. Tested the water and nitrates were high with no great indication of why...I do water changes every week but it's possible the stress guard and Seachem crystal medication we're too...

    Fuzzy Spot On Cory Head

    They have always been really short...they may be worn down but I want to say they have always been like this. Possible hes deformed because his body is also stubby. Tank is planted and substrate is black fluorite sand.

    Albino Cory Lost Tail

    After one weekend away I came home to an albino Cory completely missing his tail. This fish is crazy energetic to start and this hasn't changed him other than making his resting positions weirder. I haven't seen any revrowth in 3 weeks. Anyone have ideas on the cause? I assumed it was a hungry...

    Plant Edges Brown With Patchy Green Spots

    Okay thanks! Fluorish tabs. I have a comprehensive fert in the mail now but if you think it's multiple deficiencies, I'll stop agonizing over trying to pin down just one. Thanks!
