    Medicated Tank And Adding New Fish

    Hello! I recently had an ich outbreak in my 20 gallon community tank. I lost all but 2 fish, 2 neon tetras. I've medicated the tank with Ich-x, and continued medicating for 3 days after the last symptoms disappeared. I chose to medicate the entire tank because I did not have a...

    Ich... What To Do With Tank And Remaining Fish

    One more question...the 2 tetras are doing great. All signs of ich is gone from them and our tank water has never looked better. I've medicated for 4 days past the last symptom, and was planning on doing a water change and putting the carbon filter back in tomorrow. But, the tetras are seeming...

    Ich... What To Do With Tank And Remaining Fish

    Thanks! Does Ich-x hurt moss balls? The snail and the moss balls are currently residing on my kitchen counter in a jar. We start showing our home next week, and I'd rather not have them out if its safe to put all back in the tank! Thank you! Thank you so much!

    Bacterial Or Algae Bloom?

    Thanks, all! I just took all decor out and vacuumed the gravel really well and changed out some water. There was a lot of gross hiding in the rocks under the decor. I'll plan on trying 50% weekly water changes and reducing the lights. And I'll keep the green machine in mind if it's still bad...

    Bacterial Or Algae Bloom?

    I turn the lights on around 7 am and shut them off about 6 PM. Just the light that came with the tank hood. Lately, though, I've been leaving it off. It doesn't get any direct sunlight, but there is a window in the room. I dont use any plant fertilizers. The LFS told me the moss balls would...

    Bacterial Or Algae Bloom?

    I have an Aquaclear 50, and I also put a sponge around the intake. I was changing about 8 gallons a week. Lately though, I've been changing out about 3 gallons every couple of days.

    Filter Upgrade

    Thanks. It is cycled. We have a candy stripe pleco, 4 platies, 2 mollies, 5 neon tetras and a honey gourami. We've had it running for almost 2 months. We started with a few fish and have been adding every other week with no problems. The only issue I've had is some brown algae that I cant seem...

    Filter Upgrade

    We bought a 20 gallon tank with included filter at Christmas time. It was for my kids, but it's now mine. Ha! It's been running fine, and our fish tank is now fully stocked. When I enter everything into Aqadvisor, I'm told that i need to get more filtration. I am brand new to this, and have...

    Bloated Molly

    I called and they said they'd do an exchange. We aren't close to the store, so I'm betting we will have fry before I can exchange the fish. My girls are mortified of the thought of other fish eating them. I'm hoping they dont pay close enough attention to notice what's going on!

    Bloated Molly

    Oh man. I was hoping to avoid my little kids having to see the fry being eaten. But, I dont want (or have room for) more fish. Do LFS generally take fish back? Or would that not be the best idea? The fish get along well....I'd hate to exchange her for a male and throw things off.
