I noticed some spots last night that may or may not be ich. I decided I'd rather treat it than let it get out of hand if it is in fact ich. I'm slowly bringing up the temp.
I'm not new to the hobby, but I am new to treating fish health.
20 gal planted tank (annubia and java fern)
aquaclear 50 filter
weekly 30-40% water...
Another dead kuhli loach body just appeared!
Not sure how long this one was dead for, but just two days ago I saw them all out and about looking healthy. The dead body was already shedding skin.
Well my cories seem more active since I started feeding them 3 pellets a day (1 morning, 1 afternoon and 1 before bed). So have the loaches.
Aside from that, it doesn't sound like I am doing much...
Thanks for the tips. I have read those stickies and many more to do research. When I first set up my 10 gallon tank, I did a fishless cycle. That tank is set up in another location now. I used a...
This past time I gently squeezed out the 2 sponges in tank water in a bucket taken out during a water change. Next time I plan on just replacing the filter sponges. However, I do have bio pellets...
I'm using Nutrafin Aquaplus water conditioner.
And for all 11, I was using that much because I thought I could see a lot of residue hours later. I have yet to find an answer as to how much I...
Although I've been running this tank for a while, I'm obviously a beginner since I can't figure out what is going on, so I'm posting here.
My fish keep dying. I check my tank every day, and I'm...
Thanks for the tip. I dropped a some shrimp pellets to try to get the ammonia up and the cycle going and I'm testing.
As for the ADF, I started treating for infections with API Melafix and I started...
I have 3 ADF that have spent the past month barely eating (they are so skinny I can't believe they are still alive) and spending 90% of their time at the top of the tank. I am new to ADF obviously....

The last of my fish died tonight. I tested the water - 0 ammonia. Not sure what is going on... Maybe some sort of chemical made it to the water? Or everything got so sick it died even...

Did another 25% change last night, ammonia was 0. Was about to go do another change... betta died. Frogs still alive, so are my snails and my 3 last rummynose tetras. This is so sad. I just now...

Two more tetras floating in the tank.... Found the third frog, they are very much awake right now. My betta found a little hole in the back of my driftwood to hide in. I'm worried about the little...

Just walked into my house to notice two of my rummynose tetras are dead and my crowntail betta doesn't look right. He is quite skittish, only moves in short bursts and likes to lay at the bottom of...
Do you have nerite snails? They leave single white eggs all over the place. It won't harm your tank, and they do disappear after a while.
Thanks for all the advice!
After doing a fair bit of reading, I think I will probably go with an AC20 and I will piggyback the intake tubes and use prefilter sponges.
I think this will be...
I have a 20 gallon high low light planted (java fern and anubia) tank I would like to stock with the following:
6-8 stop light tetra
3 nerite snail
I currently have an...
Thank you all for your input!
I will work on finding an Aquaclear 50 before the tank fills up. I've been doing some reading, and some would recommend adding a 20 instead of...
I have a 20 Gal high cycled low light tank with java fern and anubias nana attached to 2 pieces of Malaysian driftwood (and one miniature piece near the foreground for another anubia). The...
I just did a 30% water change then another 30% water change. The poor thing isn't looking good. It looks like it is gasping for air and I can see its gills. Maybe it was a fungal...
I just got the water tested. I believe the reason for which the nitrate is at 0 is because I have a lot of plants in the tank and a very low bioload for a 10 gallon tank. I have verified that the...
I have a 10 gallon planted cycled tank.
3 otto, 5 nerite, 1 assassin snail, 2 RCS and 1 betta.
Ok this is what I have:
To answer the aforementioned questions:
- It seems to be a mixture of black lava rock and standard black gravel. (it was given to me by my brother and he got it from an...
Sorry I forgot that I did make one last change - Since I had my aquaclear20 filter running with the same filter cartridge for the past 5 months, I took out the carbon out of the filter ( just cut...
Fully cycled tank (with currently a 0 for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate).
Planted tank with 1 betta and 1 assassin snail.
About a week ago I got a very nice new plant that is very...
