    Why is my fish skinny?

    update: He took a turn for the worse and now cannot stay upright. I expect him to pass soon because this is exactly what happened to his partner. I still don’t know what’s wrong. I stopped metro and started kanaplex when I saw him going down hill but looks like it’s too late. I’m going to be...

    Why is my fish skinny?

    He has been eating though, which is why I feel like it’s not malnutrition causing the skinny belly. I’ll try feeding bloodworms again once i’m done with the metro since mini wafers is the food I combined with the meds.

    Why is my fish skinny?

    10 gallon(just for quarantine), he is alone used to have a partner but she died, i feed mostly pellets/wafers(he doesn’t like most frozen food), he always eats if i feed dry foods(he will spit out frozen food).

    Why is my fish skinny?

    I got this juvenile Bolivian Ram almost a month ago and it is still skinny. I have treated with praziquantel and am almost done with a 10 day metroplex treatment and haven’t seen improvement. I never saw stringy white poop though so I’m thinking it might be bacterial. What else besides...

    Hygrophila leaves turning brown with white/clear fungus

    Thanks for replying, it’s not slime because the brown does not come off when I rub it. I hope that it is just adjusting but seems like leaves would be going transparent instead of just brown if that were the case.

    Hygrophila leaves turning brown with white/clear fungus

    I got several new plants for my *cycling* fish tank around 2 weeks ago. I purchased an amazon sword, vallisneria and hygrophila. They all started melting at first, but after a trim the amazon sword and vallisneria improved. The hygrophila however is still getting more brown leaves daily, I trim...

    Which filter for 20 gallon?

    Now I’m scared haha, that’s why I’m so hesistant to switch from Aqueons because mine has served me well in my 10 gallon for a year. How has yours ruined a tank?

    Which filter for 20 gallon?

    I plan on: 6 cherry barbs, 6 panda corys, 1 honey gourami, and possibly some swordtails/mollies. Is cleaning the aquaclear time consuming? Also I’ve seen a lot of reviews saying it won’t start up on its own if the power goes out but will run dry, has that been true for you? 6 cherry barbs, 6...

    Which filter for 20 gallon?

    I recently set up a new 20 gallon tank and it’s still cycling at the moment with an Aqueon 20. However, I realized ~2 weeks after running this filter that one with a larger capacity would be more helpful. Now I’m trying to decide between an Aqueon 30, Aquaclear 30, or Fluval C3 if I decide to...

    Opinions on this stocking plan?

    Ok I would like to keep all males but multiple male swordtails with no females will fight from what I’ve read, and if I got females there’s a chance they could already be pregnant. I may just have to not get one

    Opinions on this stocking plan?

    Would it help to add a molly since they are also livebearers but supposedly cant breed with the sword?

    Opinions on this stocking plan?

    From what I’ve read they should do fine as long as I have a big enough group of barbs. I will likely add another gourami if I drop the swordtail

    Opinions on this stocking plan?

    Noted, and it’s a completely new set up. The 10g had a suspected mycobacteriosis outbreak so I cannot transfer any fish over sadly. Also I read on several sites that a male swordtail would do fine alone and multiple males may fight. I don’t want a female because I don’t want any fry.

    Opinions on this stocking plan?

    That’s a big water change to be doing weekly. Tank is 78°F without a heater, I’ll get one if needed. Substrate is sand.

    Opinions on this stocking plan?

    I have a 20 gallon tank cycling right now and I’m really excited to be able to have more fish than I did in my 10g once it is established but of course I don’t want to overdo it. Here’s my current idea: 6 Panda corys 5 Cherry barbs 1 male Swordtail 1 honey Gourami 1 mystery snail I have an...

    Diagnosis for my dead danio-mycobacterium?

    Is there any way to disinfect the filter, decorations etc? I’ve heard bleach or vinegar may work but not guaranteed. I’d hate to have to replace ALL of my equipment if I can’t successfully disinfect it...

    Diagnosis for my dead danio-mycobacterium?

    Alright I plan to set up another tank while I let the infected fish live out the rest of their lives in the old one. How can I prevent the same situation from happening with the new tank? Or is that impossible to avoid if a store sells me infected fish
