    Honey gourami with black face/chest?

    Possible fin rot?

    Hello all. Two weeks ago I noticed my serpae tetra was missing part of their tail and had some white. I quarantined it and dosed with paragaurd for 10 days. The tail began to grow back and some color was back, so I put it back in the main tank. I'm noticing some of the white is returning. I know...

    Nerite snail pooping nonstop?

    Hello all. I have a 5 gallon planted tank with a single betta in it. One week ago, I added one nerite snail to clean up some of the biofilm and plants. Within 24 hours, the entire bottom of the tank was just snail poop. Probably 40-50 pieces. I figured he probably ate so much the first day, it...

    Mixed reviews about Petsmart plants ?

    Hello all. I am currently planting a 5gallon betta tank, and came across petsmarts tube plants. I only do tissue culture plants because I don't want pests.

    Sex of my pearl gouramis?

    Hello all. I had 2 (what I assumed) female gouramis since July. They get along well, and were sold to me as females, but I did not realize back then that sexing them is rather difficult. As they grow, I am noticing some differences in their fins, and was wondering if one might be male. I have...

    What could be making a whistling sound in my aquarium?

    Hello all. For the last day and a half, I have been plagued by and on and off whistling noise coming from around my aquarium. Now, I am not 100% sure this is from the aquarium, but I have no idea what else it could be, as it is the only thing in that area. I have a 20 gallon with a HOB filter...

    55 gallon tank stand stability?

    Hello all. I have a 55 gallon stand on a metal stand I purchased from petco since July. It has been stable. I just read a horror story about someone's tank exploding from an uneven stand and it got me thinking. Using a level on the top of my tank, it is completely level. Although, I remember...

    Best ich treatment for rummynose tetra

    Hello all. I picked up 6 rummynose tetra from my LFS today and put them in my quarantine tank. I am aware that these guys are very sensitive, so I made sure the tank was cycled and had Indian almond leaves in it. Two fish had red marks on their side, possible from rough handling of LFS. Within...
