    Help Ich Treatment Advice Needed

    We're about 2 weeks into ich treatment. Should we clean the sponge filter? Rinsing it in tank water would not be helpful. Should we actually remove and clean sand substrate? Should we leave silk plants and other decorations in the tank? Also, when a fish is showing shimmy behavior, fins all...

    Important Ich Losses

    Disappointed. Lost 7 cardinal tetras and 1 platy due to ich. Had raised temp slowly to 86, added pure kosher salt at the onset and then began API ich removal medication. The fish were covered with white spots and struggled to stay swimming very far off the ground. Have one platy that has it...

    The white specks on my tetras and platys (only fish I have) look like ich based on pictures I've seen. Read in an article on fish forum to treat: Remove carbon from filter. Raise temp slowly to 86. Add salt with no additives at 1 teaspoon per gallon. What else should I do?

    Help Filter Died And It's Sunday Night!

    Greased the impeller with vaseline. Have had to clean out impeller several times. We have sand, but don't move the sand around... Just bought this in Feb. Do you think the vaseline is just a quick fix? Should we buy a new filter?

    Help Filter Died And It's Sunday Night!

    We found our fluvial 30 for our 13 gal tank bit the dust tonight. We have 4 cardinal tetras and 1 dwarf gourami (gourami brand new). What do we do overnight until morning when a Petco or PetSmart opens? We do have a Aqueon 10 gal unused that came with the aquarium but no beneficial bacteria in it.
