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...
You are all so right and I should have known better than to test the water before asking questions.
PH - 7
nitrate: Almost a 0, I had just done a fairly large water...
I have a 10 gallon tank
Fully cycled and running quite well for about 2-3 months now.
1 betta and 1 assassin snail.
On and off problems with phosphate being the cause of algae...
So here is where I stand:
My tap water is fantastic, no traces of ammonia, nitrIte nor nitrATE.
My nitrATE levels in the tank are great.
I got my phosphates tested and they were extremely...
The tank completed its cycle two weeks ago. I did a 90% water change. I was planning on doing a 30% weekly water change (has been done once).
I will try to stir the substrate without bothering the...
Hello Aquarium lovers! I have learned that you like as many details as possible so here it goes!
I'm starting to notice a bit of an algae issue with my tank. It 10 gallons, is fully cycled...
Lady Hobbs, wouldn't the apple snail make a quick enough snack out of my plants?
Seb's fish, do you mean have 5 female bettas in the tank at once without separators? I would consider that but is...
My betta used to be in a small tank with bad conditions. After almost dying and suffering from fin rott, she got moved to a freshly fishless cycled 10 gal planted tank. She is happy, swimming around...
You were right! I took your advice and kept going. I just came home tonight and tested the tank - 0 ammonia and 0 nitrITES. I'm doing the "24 hour test" to see if I was really getting the right...
