    Endler fin nipping or fin rot?

    I hate to be that person to post this probably the millionth time but I’m just stumped after researching and watching my fish like a hawk. I have 3 male endlers livebearers currently in my 29 gal with neocaridina shrimp and nerite snails as the only current inhabitants. They are in a...

    Endler jumped out, what now?

    I got 3 male endlers last week and quarantined (still am) them in a makeshift 13 gallon sterilite storage container, seeded sponge filter, heater, and a few large plastic decor (included floating plastic plants for cover). No lid, since in my mind having the 3 inches below the top of the...

    New endlers swimming in place, seem stressed

    I bought 3 male endlers today who looked healthy and from an LFS that quarantines sick fish, and acclimated them to my tank water (floated them in the bag for a few hours and then slowly started adding water). I did a WC on my main tank to steal about 5 gallons of the old water to add to the QT...

    Explosion of detritus worms yet no fish food

    I set up my first ever planted tank almost a month ago and it’s now fully cycled but in a waiting period (waiting for my plants to root better and grow taller before adding fish to give them cover). Only animals I’ve added are 2 nerite snails that are exclusively subsisting on algae and biofilm...

    What type of deficiency is this? Stunted Amazon sword

    Hi everyone! I’m scouring the inter webs and am having a hard time finding the answer to this. I have ADA aqua soil and dose seachem flourish comp twice a week. I also added those pill supplements that come with aquasoil like root tabs around my plants. I added this sword plant about 3 weeks...

    Sterbai Cory + Planted Tank

    Hi everyone! I have a question I’m having trouble finding an answer on… I’m establishing my first planted aquarium and it’s not crazy heavily planted but there’s pretty much plants rooted in almost all the surface area of the aquarium. They’re still establishing so theyre pretty susceptible to...

    Forgot S Repens in cup for a week, worth keeping?

    Hi everyone! I got a question that I seem to not find any answers online for… I bought a 1 2 grow tissue culture cup of s repens. Due to me being extremely busy, and a bit careless IMO, it essentially was forgotten in the cup for about a week (or 2, I don’t remember). The top leaves looked fine...

    New tank, new plants, new leaves dying

    I'm currently in the process of cycling a new tank with ADA Aquasoil for the last few weeks and added a few plants, including an amazon sword and a couple valisnerias. After 2 weeks of quarantine and a very quick bleach dip, I went ahead and planted them. I know melting is expected at first...

    Cycling new tank with aquasoil, have questions

    Hi everyone! I have a few questions with a lot of conflicting answers on the interwebs so I figured to ask here… I’m starting to (fishless) cycle a brand new 29 gal tank and figured there’s no easier way to cycle a planted tank than just having the aquasoil doing all the work. I started dosing...

    What is this in my new tank?

    I just started this new tank a few days ago and started cycling it. Recently added aquasoil and a few plants (after weeks of quarantine and a bleach dip). The soil has settled today but some of the particles have stayed floating. I just saw this today floating among the particles. It looks like...

    Wondering if Cardinals would like my water hardness

    Hi everyone! I’m trying to decide whether cardinal tetras would be a good fit for my tank. I have a 29 gal that I’m setting up (don’t worry, adding everything after the nitrogen cycle finishes). I was so excited about the stock I decided on but then I tested my tap water, pH of about 8, gH of...

    Is this stocking good for a 29 gal, heavily researched

    Hi everyone! First post I’ve done here in years, SUPER excited to get back into the hobby. I’ve been doing a maniacal amount of research for the fish I want to keep in my new 29 gal (low tech planted) after it’s finished cycling. I’ve come up with this list from my researchand AqAdvisor. I know...

    33 gallon community tank ideas - high pH!

    Hey FishLore people! I recently obtained an old 33 gallon tank from a neighbor and want to turn it into the beautiful community tank I've always wanted. I know that there are so many fish to choose but I realized my pH is a very limiting factor. I have a pH of 7.6-7.8 and I want my fish to lie...

    Bad bout of SBD :(

    My delta tail betta has been a little over a year with me in his cozy 10 gal tank. I noticed over time when I brought him home that he has clear swim bladder problems. He used to float and now tends to sink. His attacks come and go. There was a whole month where he was grounded (gravel-ed?) and...
