    Weird gunky white stuff...what is this?

    Weird gunky white stuff...is this ich? My 55 gallon with 2 bloody parrots is in trouble. All of a sudden last night before I went to bed I noticed weird gunky white stringy/fuzzy stuff covering both of my parrots. It lined their gills and eyes and fins. There's also some on one of the logs in...

    New blood red parrot cichlids! Need tankmate ideas.

    My 55 finished cycling a week ago so today I went to the fish store to finally stock it. :] Originally I was going to stock it with a pair of angelfish, some silver dollars and some corys, but I ended up falling in love with the parrot cichlids. They were just so cute. I wound up buying a pair...

    Suggestions for my new tank?

    I just got a 55 gallon tank for free from Freecycle. (It has a leak but I'm fixing it.) In the meantime, what do you guys think I should put in it? I was thinking some types of cichlids, though I've never owned any before. What do you think would be a good stock for a beginner in that respect...

    Funny Cute or strange?!

    Since my female betta and albino cory were all alone in my great big tank since the rest of the fish died, I decided to get a couple more corys so the albino wouldn't get lonely once my tank stabilized. And what did I see when I turned the light on this morning? All four corys burying under...

    Mass fish death...

    So, I did a 50% water change yesterday because I was vacuuming the sand in my tropical community. I do this every time I'm cleaning the sand, and figured this time would be no different. I went out of town last night and came back tonight. ALL of my fish, save one cory and the female betta, were...

    Shredded fins.

    One of my male bettas, Coppy, has shredded fins. When I turned on the light this morning his tail fins were in tatters. I just did a water change two days ago (and unfortunately I'm out of test kits so I'm not sure what the levels are, but they were normal last I checked). I have no idea what...

    Molly burned?

    Is it possible for a heater to burn fish? I came home last night and when I was feeding the fish in my tropical community tank I noticed that the rubber bottom of the heater had come off. I put it back on, then noticed that my dalmation molly had a lot of whitish tissue around her eye and...

    What happened?

    My boyfriend's sister-in-law has a 10 gallon tank. She had a glass catfish, a pleco (not sure what kind, not too well versed on plecos - he was spotted and his back fin looked like those little mohawk tufts on trojan helmets, if that helps...), 3 cherry barbs and an african dwarf frog. She had...

    Which fish is the culprit?

    In my community tank I have a dalmation molly, 2 black mollies, 2 glo-fish (1 red and 1 orange), 2 red wag platys, 1 dwarf coral platy, 1 female betta, 1 albino cory cat, and 1 angelicus botia. They all get along really well; never had any aggression problems in the tank with this combo. They...

    What do you do when the power goes out?

    So, this is something that's admittedly never crossed my mind until now. What do you do when the power goes out? How long can fish live without their water being aerated?

    update on old jimmy

    Jimmy is doing MUCH better after his altercation with Coppy. He seems to be making a speedy recovery. He has gotten his appetite back completely and his wounds are healing. He's swimming around very well and his fins have come unclamped. He's already sick of the breeder box; he dances around...

    Seriously injured betta So I was out later than usual tonight and missed my fish's second feeding, and I came home a few minutes ago and found that Coppy jumped the divider and got to my old betta Jimmy...well, Jimmy lost. He's still alive, but he's sitting at the bottom of the tank, very slow...

    Sick bettas, possibly?

    I received two male half-moon bettas in the mail yesterday, a copper butterfly and a blue butterfly. Both seemed very healthy, good color and activity, etc., when I opened them up. However, the copper has some white spots on his head. They're hard to take pictures of and in the photos I was...

So still very new to this. eek. Anyway, I've grown very fond of bettas, and I'm looking to house multiple ones...
