    What worm is this?

    No, right now it’s just a bladder snail tank. Is there a parasite remover I can put in that will kill it?

    What worm is this?

    I am terrified of worms so I really don’t want to catch it. Is that the only way to get rid of it? What would happen if I just leave it?

    What worm is this?

    I know it’s a little hard to see but can anyone tell me what worm this is? Or how to kill it without killing my bladder snails. Thanks

    Bladder snails keep dying

    I just got home and tested pH. It’s at 7.6. I don’t know the GH or KH. It’s a planted tank so they eat decaying plants, algae (though there isn’t much) and I put fish flakes in every couple days. No temp changes. The heater keeps it at 78 F

    Bladder snails keep dying

    I have a 5 gallon tank that was going to be for a betta but I decided to just do bladder snails. I’ve noticed in the last couple weeks they aren’t as active and yesterday I noticed a couple dead ones. They aren’t old. I tested the water and it was 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and just a little nitrate...

    Why did my betta die? Water parameters included

    Thanks for all the info! There are still a few small bladder snails, I’m assuming they won’t produce enough ammonia by themselves but do you think it would work with fish flakes and the snails combined? We’re not planning on getting another betta soon so we just want to keep the cycle going...

    Normal Betta Behavior?

    Thanks for the help! He is in a 5 gallon with many plants, a rock, and a small place to hide. We began the cycle a week before getting him. After a week many suggested that we do the rest of the cycle with the fish in. But we have been testing the water everyday to make sure the water is safe...

    Normal Betta Behavior?

    Hi, my sister got a betta a couple days ago and I’ve been helping her with everything because this is her first aquarium. But I’m more of a goldfish person so I really am not sure if this is normal behavior for a betta. Today, we noticed the betta takes a lot of naps throughout the day. And by...

    Is my tank cycled?

    I could be wrong about it being 20. I know there are nitrates present but I was having a hard time determining what number exactly based on the color chart. We didn’t add any fertilizer. Could anything else make the nitrates go up? I really appreciate the help! The plants had a black pot...

    Is my tank cycled?

    We were going to do the fish flake method but when she bought plants we noticed a bunch of very small snails on the plants. I don’t agree with cycling with snails, personally because I see it as inhumane but we didn’t know what else to do with the snails. We are just planning on the one betta...

    Is my tank cycled?

    My sister started cycling a 5 gallon for a betta a week ago Saturday. We are using nite out II and the special blend to help the cycle. I tested the water Monday (two days after starting up the tank) and it was 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and 5ppm nitrate. I’m not sure how the numbers were so good so...
