    Angel Issues

    I'm sorry to hear its frustrating when things like this happen. Keep an eye on the remaining angel and reply if he goes down the same path. I'd do a 50% water change for good measure since he has passed.

    Angel Issues

    Hi, it may be a good idea to turn down the flow of the tank so that the ill angelfish isn't stressed out and tired. I would recommend varying your fish's diet, try frozen foods my community tank loves Hikari Micro-pellets which are a good quality food. It is weird that your fish are developing...

    Spots On Tail - Is This Normal?

    They look fine to me just like tail foldage or whatever. If its been several weeks and nothing has changed with the fish I wouldn't stress too much. I'd wait for some other members to comment on the situation though before making a decision to move him. Thanks

    New Fish Missing Piece Of Tail

    Hi there, Make sure the fish is eating, try feeding fatty protein foods like frozen blood worms to fatten him up. Keep an eye on his tail and make sure that it doesn't get infected with something like fin rot. I'd probably do 25% water changes daily to heal the tail faster. Thanks

    Stress Or Sick? Rainbowfish

    Hi, I would definitely suggest pulling the fish out and treating it in quarantine, the worst thing that could happen is more fish becoming infected. I'm not sure what the disease is but it seems bacterial.

    Harlequin Rasbora Dietary Needs

    If you diversify a fish's diet they will be healthier and better coloured. I would strongly recommend Hikari micro-pellets, an average flake food and a live or frozen food for harlequin rosboras.

    Question Ammonia Not Lowering

    Do 50% water changes everyday until the ammonia reaches 0.25pmm. Monitor your levels closely as you don't want them to rise. By rushing the cycling process it can be tricky to keep fish healthy and the media cycled. Large water changes don't allow bacteria to settle yet are needed for the fish...

    At What Point Does School Size Not Matter So Much Or Is Too Much?

    The more fish you have in a school the better behaviour you'll have. You can never really have too many in a school unless it starts affecting the biological processes.
