    Help Goldfish With Strange Lumps On Lip?

    I'm definitely no expert in fish disease and have unfortunately some good experience with a limited amount of diseases mostly occurring to me in the past few years. I had these lumps only one and it randomly happened on 2-3 of the neons. My only suspect was possibly from a higher level of...

    Help Alternative Way To Catch Fish Babies

    I had success with floating plants. I also have a "glass shrimp catcher" that I ordered online from the UK. It looks kind of like a little glass oldschool Tabasco pipe. I would corral the babies using it. Worked like a charm. I also have used plastic clear cups or the cups they keep...

    Help Goldfish With Strange Lumps On Lip?

    Can you compare to older photos of your fish and see if you notice them? I'd monitor and see if they grow. I've only had one experience with cyst lumps that grew over time on the lips of my neon tetras. All I can say is that the experience didn't end well and I never got a cure/full diagnosis...

    Homes Found For The Fish! Thanks!

    Hey there! I actually live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago about 45m-1hr out. The bristlenose in my 75g tank just passed and I would be interested in taking your neighbors. I may also be interested in the angelfish. How large is he? Do you know his temperament? Pictures would be wonderful...

    Help Urgent: Pleco Not Eating For Over A Month!

    Final Update: I did a 50% pwc on two days ago and he was rather active and actually out and about. I checked on him yesterday and saw him on the substrate and thought I saw a little white patch on his head. I couldn't really tell, so I figured I'd check the next day. So tonight I went to check...

    Help Urgent: Pleco Not Eating For Over A Month!

    I'll try anything at this point. I've had him for 2 years and he's always eaten. This was the last photo I was able to get of him on the tank wall. I believe this was about a week ago. Def not thin. There's nothing in the tank but him.

    Help Urgent: Pleco Not Eating For Over A Month!

    Yes. I've tried both cucumbers and brussel sprouts. He use to eat an entire cucumber chunk in less than 8 hrs. Now they're just sitting there and I pull them out when they begin to rot and break down. Not a single munch on them. I've left them for up to 48hrs

    Help Urgent: Pleco Not Eating For Over A Month!

    Really?!? They just sleep like that and rise from the dead lol! That's insane! I've never seen him do that. Well that makes me feel better! He's still not eating anything I offer him though. I got nervous he was on a fast decline

    Help Urgent: Pleco Not Eating For Over A Month!

    Ok now something is SERIOUSLY wrong... Yesterday I went over to check up on my pleco and he was dead! He was laying belly up under his driftwood not attached. I ran to the front of the tank to get a better view then saw he was perfectly normal. I went back to the side of the tank and thought I...

    10 Gallon Tank Half Of Cardinals In Qt Dead

    I currently have 2 tetras in my main 20g that these guys will be going to. 1 neon and 1 cardinal. The neon is the last survivor of a horrible cyst disease I was never able to treat. He just never got infected. The other neon was the last survivor of the group waiting in my QT (prior to the group...

    10 Gallon Tank Half Of Cardinals In Qt Dead

    UPDATE: Another cardinal dead! However I finally saw symptoms of disease! One of the cardinals has white fuzzy patch on its side. It's swimming in place and looks odd. The second cardinal doesnt have any white patches but his coloration is weird (not seeing any red underbelly. Possibly a little...

    Amazon Sword Issues

    Thanks Mak! I trimmed all of the dying growth off of all my plants this past weekend. The two smaller swords were moved towards the front and their root tabs were moved as well. I'll put some root tabs in more often and see if it helps. If not, I'll definitely look into other methods. These are...

    Tank Keeps Crashing

    So I found the issue. You said you did a filter change, which can cause loss of cycle or a mini cycle. The beneficial bacteria needed to turn ammonia and nitrite into nitrate lives in your filter. By replacing any cartridges, you're throwing away all of that good bacteria. You should never...

    Help, Think My Fish Got Ick

    Glad to know everything is on the rise! I'm going to add a few things incase you need it in the future. Heat treatment for ich should be done for no shorter than 7 days and should be continued for at least 4 more days after all signs of spots disappearing. I never use salt. There's huge...

    10 Gallon Tank Half Of Cardinals In Qt Dead

    Yeah they're usually washed out but these ones were more pale than normal. Having the light helped but since the one is more pale than the others it worried me. Esp since I see no other sign of disease.

    10 Gallon Tank Half Of Cardinals In Qt Dead

    My coworker recommended this place to me since my normal store which is much further away hasn't had them in stock in a while. I paid 2-3x the price for them and i'm real disappointed half of them died so fast. Also no refund or returns on cardinals. Yay. I think I'll stick to my regular store...
