Lol! That's a conversation my husband and I are on opposite sides of. We had an ich outbreak immediately after getting our first 3 fish. We didn't quarantine the next ones because we didn't have an available tank. Now we're figuring we have it, may as well use it! It's either that or or put...
Hey gang! I have a 10G tank that no longer has occupants since moving all the fishies to a 20G. Want to use the 10G as a quarantine tank. It's an established tank with completed cycle. Since there are no fish producing waste to feed the BB, do I need to put food in it occasionally to keep the BB...
Update! She was gravid! Two days ago, two of her tankmates (which I'll now assume are male) started chasing her something fierce. All of a sudden, today, she's skinny! So either she had the biggest poop ever, or she laid her eggs. I'm gonna go with the latter.
The five Glofish tetras on their own would have been pushing the limits of a 10G tank. Adding everything else probably shocked them into a new cycle. I agree with Crimson_687, a bigger tank is in order.
What is the water volume of the tank? 10G
How long has the tank been running? Since August
Does it have a filter? HOB
Does it have a heater? Yes
What is the water temperature? 80° F
What is the entire stocking of this tank? (Please list all fish and inverts.) 5 Glowfish tetras
My poor little Glofish tetra has been rather bloated for a while. At first, I thought maybe it getting ready to lay eggs, but it's been weeks now. Still swimming and eating, not sluggish or hanging out near the filters. No pineconing of the scales. Her (?) right side seems bigger than her left...
We've been battling green water in our 10G freshwater tank for a couple of months. Finally got a UV filter and it did wonders! Now my question to you folks that have UV filters, do you run it all the time or only when there's an issue?
