Just came across this thread that i started months ago - out of the anubias, hornwort, cabomba & elodea i started with...the anubias & elodea survived my snails! the hornwort & cabomba were all eaten...

I upgraded to a 65g tank yesterday that is about 4-6in taller than my old tank -my eheim filters were already on top of bricks because the tubes were too short - but now the filters...
thanks for the ideas - i'll look into the bigger pipe & the clay a little more (i read that its pretty cheap)
Thanks! I'll ask around - funny enough i searched google but never thought to actully search if there were bigger pvc pipes LOL
I've thought about the rock & silicone idea...i'd rather use something...
My pleco (Peru) is rapidly reaching 10in & will be in need of a larger cave probably by the winter.
I have been searching for DIY ideas but haven't found anything good.
I have a container that i've been using so he hasn't come out of water.
Should I add any aquarium salt to the hospital tank?
I'm not sure what will actually help
Has anyone had a fish this...
he's doing worse than he was when I found him 4hrs ago. He cant swim but is breathing (laying at the bottom of the breeder) & moves his side fins a little if i hold him up.
I did a 5min...
my pearlscale goldfish Ben (who is about 2 yrs old) got stuck sometime this morning behind a cave & piece of driftwood! from the damage im thinking he was there for quite some time.
he is in...
ya dropsy is a difficult one to deal with. I would say in terms of prevention the same old advice - keep the water in great condition, fast the fish one or two days a week & feeds shelled cooked peas...

wow looking good - i am so glad u have posted pictures of the growth rate! I am always wondering when my little black ranchu/lionhead will have wen/head? growth, he's still under a year old so i hope...
my fantail is 2yrs old now. When i got him his body was about an inch and a bit long. Now his body is just over 3in long - with his tail he is over 6in in lenght...& he's kinda round.
no...i should - mostly bc i'm curious too, sadly it didnt even occur to me & i have the test kit under my main tank!
me too - i never thought of it that way either & never really thought fish could fart
omg its true!
its the goldfish that do it & from what i can tell i've only seen the one's i know are boys do it
wow so this is kinda normal?
I agree I saw them for the 1st time a yr ago in one store - i had no idea people actually bought them!
Then when I started working in a school the room i was given had a fish tank & this frog...
Seriously...do they fart or have a fish form of diarrhea?
Every now & again I notice explosions of 'stuff' in the tank - it looks like stirred up poop, or spit up food. Except it happens when...
sounds like a good plan
i did a little reading to jog my memory of why i thought the frogs with my fish was a bad idea...they will get eaten...or fat...either way not a good outcome!
bigger tank for the little...
so the unsettling feeling i had when i saw this cube with live frogs wasn't without reason!
thanks for the link!
Ok so here is my next question - since i really dont like these frogs living in a little cube & would rather have them in my tank...
I have fancy goldfish - some rather large - some small & a 9in...
I have a wild creations ecoaquarium that i am taking care of for the summer, it has 2 african dwarf frogs in it.
It has some kind of special gravel, a rock & a bamboo stalk. For the last 3 months...

I think try salt in the tank with your pleco Lab Rat & see if that helps before you do anything else & maybe think about meds - if you havent tried that yet. yes Peru's growth had nothing in it...

its been 5 months since the growth was removed & its still looking good!
Peru is still growing about a half inch a month & is now a little over 9in. About a month ago he started eating out...
