Looks like water marks from "hard" water.
How is the aggression from the other fish? Any chasing or posturing?
What color is the background and the substrate?
Dominant male on left, subdominant male on right...
It could be the start of something bad, so try something mild lik methylene blue or Seachem Paraguard in a gallon of water in another container like a 5 gallon bucket.
Put 1 ml of methylene blue. ...
Take a cup of water (or a gallon) from the tap, use an airstone with a pump in it, and then test the ph of the water in the cup.
Have you tested the GH and KH of your tap water? It may not be...
Why do you wait to dose the age water with Prime? Why not dose it while filling up the bins?
It has everything that you need. You can get it for $125 at Big Als http://www.bigalspets.com/classic-canister-filter-with-media-2217.html.
If you want it even quieter, you can have the spray bar...
Plywood is actually quite strong. Look at all the DIY aquariums. Many use plywood. I doubt plywood would be used as an aquarium if it were crappy and couldn't be used for 300+ gallon tanks. It's...
Slap wants 100K posts before 2016....
That's good until someone wants to use the ice for their beverage. LOL
What fish are showing signs of distress while the temp of the tank is at 80F for a few hours?
So if your cold tap water is 84f, and yet your aquarium is around room temperature of 80F or lower, why not keep it simple, and just let the water sit in 5 gallon bucket overnight in the same room as...

A red tail barracuda is a difficult fish to keep due to the need to feed the fish live insects/fish. Also, due to their skittish nature, I wouldn't keep one long term in a short tank like a 75g. It...

A 4 line pim catfish will work with the EBJD, just be aware they are nocturnal, and make spook the fish at night with the long barbels.
If the EBJD is your centerpiece fish, I wouldn't put in...

I haven't read anything to indicate that the speed at which the ich goes through its life cycle process is affected by any medication. If anything, the recovery of the fish from ich is faster due to...

Seachem Paraguard has been confirmed fine for cories and plants. I would start at half a dose first, and then work your way up to full dose.

I would use Seachem Paraguard. I have not had this destroy the bacteria in an established tank.
I don't see how any medication is faster than heat and salt considering that when the ich is in the...
1. Disconnect the hoses from the canister. Make sure the output hose is empty.
2. Make sure that the canister is empty of water.
3. Open the valves over a bucket.
4. Suck water from the INTAKE...
Is the room completely dark? I can see the BGK being able to get at the algae wafers before the other plecos.
Based on the TDS out of your tap, I'm betting you have pretty hard water (GH). How much salt are you putting in that's causing your aquarium TDS to be at 1400ppm?
You have a significantly large...
Before you start adding crushed coral, and even salt, you need to buy a GH/KH liquid test kit, and, you need to test the following on your tap water and your fish tank:
KH (you might need...
You don't have to trash the driftwood, you can soak in bleach solution, soak in prime, rinse in old tank water, and boil if you want too. Or you can soak with hydrogen peroxide a few times.
First clean the spigot from where you get your tap water with alcohol like rubbing alcohol. Use a damp cloth to wipe just the inside of it. Then test for nitrite. If it still tests for nitrite,...
If you are not sure of the cause for dropsy, then treating the tank will nearly kill the cycle. The cheapest solution to sterilize is to bleach the tank. The next cheapest solution to sterilize is...
You can add the bag of fluval later when you clean the canister some months from now..

Is pool filter sand your substrate?
