    What salt for popeye?

    sometimes bringing the temp to 80 helps them heal. When my fish got Popeye (didn't act sick) and finrot i raised the temp to 80-82 F and that helped a lot. As well as almond leaves. And Most helpful tip!!!!!! sometimes Popeye can be caused by an internal issue. sounds crazy but maybe try...

    Ghost shrimp bioload

    Great! i got a 10g but it leaked so i ended up just getting a 20gallon tall. I have 4 ghost shrimp (one died because of age) and 4 platies, 1 dwarf gourami and the snail. I can tell its so healthy for the snail because there's a distinct line in his shell growth where the color is darker and the...

    Male platy bullying female

    I have 3 female platies and 1 male at the moment. For a few weeks I've noticed one female has been getting chased and bullied by the male. Ive watched carefully to make sure she wasn't losing any weight and making sure she ate. I noticed it started right after she gave birth. Im not sure what to...

    Cataracts in betta fish? Or Bac/fungal infection?

    Not sure what it is. He could use a little immune boost from some medication from recovering from fin rot and age. But today one of his eyes looked off. Not poped out or anything. But it looked similar to when he had Popeye in Febuary and he was healing from it. Hes in a 5 gallon tank currently...

    20 gallon stocking

    yeah I'm totally fine changing water though. But that's a good idea. once everything in this tank dies off (i bought everything at a big name pet store so i know the breeding isn't fantastic) I want to have a serious heavily planted tank., id consider current planting light since they haven't...

    Platys not eating!

    UPDATE: The fish ate yesterday and today. I think this they understand the concept of food on the surface yet. But they're been active and munching on my plants and the biofilm. I gave them some sinking shrimp pellets this morning and they ate it by the time I returned. I put a piece of balanced...

    AquaClear HOB filter?

    I saw a few videos on this filter and really enjoy the fact it comes as a '3 stage filtration' filter. With a lot of room to personalize your filtration needs. I currently have a 10 gallon topfin tank with the topfin silenstream 10 power filter. there's not much room in it for 3 stage...

    Anyone Tried Alder Cones?

    SunGrow claims that they prevent fungal infections. However they are super expensive and I'm on a budget with my fish keeping (I mean with extra things not with anything i seriously need). I already use almond leafs and i enjoy them in both of my tanks. But i am trying to breed some ghost shrimp...

    Platys not eating!

    never heard of vinegar eels! I noticed a few minutes ago they are munching on the plants in the tank so I'm not super concerned. They seem to just be settling in now.

    Platys not eating!

    I’ll try that! At the pet store I noticed that they just feed the fish with the vacation feeders on the bottom of the tank so they may be looking for things in the bottom. That’s all they have tried to eat so far. I think a few are visually impaired because they don’t seem to notice the food...

    Platys not eating!

    Well my water is fine. I’ve cycled tanks before and used things and filter media from a very strong cycled tank. My pet store just got them and a few are pregnant.
