    Chillers & canister filters

    For reference, this post is about axolotl's. So I just found out you can attach a chiller to a canister filter. Can someone dumb it down for me to attach this chiller to a Fluval 207? I have a 40 gallon breeder and plan to get the attached chiller but I was expecting to have to buy a pump and...

    Ammonia stalling?

    Not to be dramatic but that sucks haha, I guess I’ll just keep my eye on them and keep testing. I’ve never had the test do this to me before. Thanks

    Ammonia stalling?

    Why would ammonia stall out? I have a 40 gallon breeder home to two 5.5in or so axolotls and the ammonia will not go below .05-.15ppm (it’s not quite that definite green of .25ppm but not that definite yellow of 0ppm; I’ve attached a picture to show - the left is the tank and the right is the...

    Bolivian ram

    Do Bolivian rams absolutely need a 2nd of them? I don’t want to get a pair for the aggression but I’m worried 1 will get stressed alone?

    Paraguard treatment

    I’m closing in on a paraguard/stressgaurd treatment on my tank (finally!), but I wanted to set up a QT tank with one of the filters I have in that tank where I’ve been using the meds. I’m fine with manually doing water changes in the large tank to remove the meds but the QT tank is where I want...

    Last one...hopefully...paraguard and stressguard

    How long does it normally take to treat a tank with a disease? As of Saturday 4/18, I’ve been treating my tank with paraguard and stressguard for a week and I’ve seen some improvement (I STILL don’t know what it is), more improvement than I had seen with the kordon rid ich and raising the temps...

    Ich treatment with med and high temps?

    Just got home and saw this. Idk what it is but that sure isn’t “salt like spots”

    Ich treatment with med and high temps?

    However my angels are vicious when they are laying eggs (I still believe it’s 2 females - one is too young and no eggs have become fertile/they eat them too early to see if they do become fertile but the 2 batches they have laid have been infertile, leaving me to believe 2 females). And the...

    Ich treatment with med and high temps?

    At this point I don’t know what to do other than to stop ich treatment, do a water change and add in paraguard and stressguard. They DO have some type of spot on them - I’m just not confident it’s ich. The ich med isn’t doing anything and the 86+ degree wasn’t doing anything either, and it’s...

    Ich treatment with med and high temps?

    I learned this too however I feel confident about it being a fish bringing it in, if it is ich. I don’t think the fish were stressed out by any means before this but it could’ve impacted whatever it going on. However I’m going to start using paraguard and stressguard and hope for the best.

    Ich treatment with med and high temps?

    I have both stress guard and salts so would doing both be ok?

    Ich treatment with med and high temps?

    I unfortunately don’t have a quarantine tank, hence me treating the entire tank as it is and how this came to be - I don’t have space for even a 10 gallon quarantine tank. If it is bacterial, I did an entire dose with microbelift artemiss (I believe this is bacterial). Either way, the only thing...

    Ich treatment with med and high temps?

    I don’t have a good picture or video of the tetras but the tetras look like ich to me. I’ve attached pictures of the tetras from about month ago (and one of the angel, where I said the spot was larger and had gotten smaller). I’m still seeing similar spots on one of the tetras and maybe some...

    Ich treatment with med and high temps?

    I haven’t added fish since maybe beginning March, who I believe brought it in (clown pleco). Haven’t added any new plants since January? Maybe February. I have over 20 live plants in it. I was told raising temps was better than any other method with live plants and scaleless fish and to leave...

    Ich treatment with med and high temps?

    It’s only been past 87 for like 4 hours. 85.8-86.4 for the last 4-6 days. They weren’t acting up until the 87.3, they keep coming up for air/staying near the top of the tank. I’ve been treating with kordon rid ich before I even started the temp, about 12 hours before. And have been doing water...

    Ich treatment with med and high temps?

    are we SURE ich can be treated with high temps and meds? i've been working on both these methods, at the same time, for almost a week now and i've seen next to no improvement since starting it... I turned the temp up to 86+ degrees (it’s only dropped to 85.8 once) 6-7 days ago and I’m not...

    Gravel to sand

    That’s what I’ve read too, but I was also told that if I don’t do 100%, the gravel may take over the sand. I’m not sure if that would be ONE WEEK but still

    Gravel to sand

    I should’ve clarified I’m also using kordon rid ich plus. I’m not using just the temp. Jeez, if I just use temps, people tell me to use more. Just use meds, I’m doing something else wrong. Sorry, I know you weren’t ridiculing that but I’ve been trying to cure this for like a month and finally...

    Gravel to sand

    I’ve decided once I cure these fish of this ich (if that’s even what it IS, (side note - I’m sure it IS it, I’m just dramatic) I’ve seen no progress, even with the temps up to 86+ in the past 3 days, it’s only gotten worse within the fish and from what I understand, it shouldn’t get worse -...
