    Tank Mates for Multis that will eat eggs/fry

    A bit of backstory... I have a 46 gallon bowfront tank that's been housing a multi colony for about 5 years. I started off with 4 F1 fish from a local store and 4 fish from a local fishkeeper's colony. In those 5 years, the colony had grown to at least 50-60 fish, but I've noticed a few fish...

    Fungus or parasite? Maybe columnaris?

    I'm having a heck of a time with my 72 gallon community tank the last few weeks. I lost two ember tetras to some mysterious color fading and lateral line darkening, 2 sparkling gouramis to a pinkish white spot on their head just above their mouth (I asked for advice on the forum, but didn't get...

    Water Wisteria edges of the leaves have been turning brown and curling

    I have had water wisteria in my tank for about 4 months. Since I added it, it has grown from about 4" to about 18" in height. Just recently (within the last week or two) the edges of the leaves have been turning brown and curling. I tried rubbing the dark spots off, and it seems like some of it...

    Amazon Sword Leaves Thinning

    I've got a few different Amazon swords in my 72 gallon tank, most are fine, but two of them have leaves that are thinning and turning brown, but the veins are still green. They've been in this tank for maybe 5-6 months and we're purchased in the plastic tubes from Petco. None of the other swords...

    Is inbreeding a problem?

    I have a 46 gallon bowfront tank of neolamprologus multifasciatus that has been running for about 5 years. I started with 8 fish from 2 different sources, now there are at least 50 adults. I’ve noticed that several of my fish have what appears to be facial deformities or possibly old injuries...

    6.6 Bookshelf Aquarium Dark Green Algae - nutrient imbalance?

    I have a 6.6 gallon bookshelf aquarium that is struggling with what looks like dark green algae at the edge of plant leaves. It's been running for 4 months with plants, I added shrimp 2 months ago, and 6 pygmy corydoras and a nerite snail 1 month ago. I use remineralized RO water for 20% weekly...

    Sparkling Gourami - Hole in the Head???

    I have a sparkling gourami in my 72 gallon community tank that has a pinkish white spot on her head. She's swimming and eating just fine, but I'm worried she's got a bacterial or fungal infection. The tank at 0/0/0 - the life plants eat up all of my nitrates and I also add additional nitrates...

    Oto with damaged tail

    I picked up 2 Otos yesterday for my 29 gallon tank and I noticed that one of them is missing part of his tail. He's super active, eating fine and not acting strange. Should I just leave it be and hope that it regrows now that he's in nice clean water or should I add anything to help him recover...

    Bolivian Ram Female?

    I have a single Bolivian Ram living with a variety of small fish (pygmy corys, sparkling gouramis, ember tetras) in a 72 gallon tank. I'd like to get another one, but I'd like to confirm that she's actually a she. I reviewed the sticky on sexing Bolivian Rams, but for some reason the photos...

    Missing Male Peacock Gudgeon/Goby

    I've got a 29 gallon tank that's been running for about a month. I cycled it with seeded filter material in the HOB, a sponge filter than ran in one of my other tanks for a few months, bottled bacteria, and live plants from my other tanks. I added ammonia before adding any fish and tested to...

    Ember Tetra faded color, not eating

    I have a school of 16 ember tetras in a 72 gallon planted tank one of them has lost his color, hangs out near the top, and won't eat. He also opens and closes his mouth non stop, it's not like gasping for air, just opening and closing his mouth. He's been like this since yesterday. I did a water...

    Cherry shrimp turning opaque and mottled

    What's going on with my shrimp? He's a cherry shrimp in a 6.6 gallon planted aquarium with 5 other cherry shrimp. He's been in there about a week. His body is getting mottled and opaque. Is he getting ready to molt or is there something wrong with him? Ammonia: 0 ppm Nitrites: 0 ppm Nitrates: 0...

    Water Change when Rocks/Decor increase pH

    I have a community tank set up where I use remineralized RO water. The aquarium has some rock I bought at Petco that was marked Seiryu, though I understand that it is unlikely that it is actual Seiryu stone. I soaked the stone in a bucket of white vinegar to dissolve as much of the calcium...

    29 Gallon Tank Peacock Gudgeons & Forktail Rainbows

    I've decided that I'd like to keep peacock gudgeons and forktail rainbows (p. furcatus) together in a currently unoccupied 29 gallon tank. The tank has pool filter sand substrate, medium density planting, a pile of dragon rock off to one side and some driftwood. How many of each species should I...

    Stocking several tanks, 6.6, 29, 72 all with nano/small species

    I've currently got a 72 gallon bowfront (sand, planted, with driftwood and rocks) running with a variety of small species. They're all pretty much leftovers from other tanks (a variety of 5-29 gallons) that I combined about two years ago into my largest tank. I was dealing with some medical...
