    Oh good, glad to hear he/she (not sure) has a good chance of being okay. It's swimming around okay so I'll leave it be.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    missing tail fin, euthanize?

    I have a 30g freshwater tank I have had for at least 3 years with no recent changes. I went on vacation for a few days and now one of my lemon tetras is missing its entire tail. Do you think this...

    fish "swimming" end over end

    One of my female Black Phantom tetras cannot swim correctly at all. She literally goes end over end and doesn't seem to have any control, although she seems to move her tail strongly in her sad...
  4. Cool, thanks.

    Thanks folks. I won't worry about him--he's much too big to get his silly self up to the impeller so he should be good. I didn't think I wanted a snail but now that I have him I find him very...
  5. mystery snail: is he stuck on filter intake?

    I'm going away for five days next week and I'm worried about my mystery snail. Every now and then I find it on the filter intake tube and I'm not sure if he can get himself off once he's on there so...

    I'm thinking I'll just keep using mostly RO with some tap water and collect it over a few days. It's not that bad--I'm just a whiner and was hoping to be able to simplify the process.

    Regarding softener working properly--I had the entire system checked and the RO membrane replaced a few months ago so, in theory, it should be working properly. The water is very soft and it becomes...

    Sadly, that is running through a softener. I'm assuming we would have to eat our water with a fork if we didn't have the softener.

    water test results, opinions please

    A few weeks ago I posted when I lost nearly half my fish after an enormous algae infestation that I stupidly treated with Algaefix. In the process of you folks helping me I was whining about water...

    Mmm. Makes you want a cool glass of water from my tap, doesn't it?

    I'm guessing that 540 total dissolved solids in the tap water makes it too high to use for my tank?

    I was careful to add some tap water even when I was using the RO water because I know the fish need the minerals. My RO water is not perfect either as I had a...
