    The bloaty one is still alive, and still hiding in the cave. The book I got from the library suggests that bloated belly with no other symptoms could be overfeeding. Today is their normal fast day...

    Well, 7 tetras came out to feed this evening, but one looked awful. Bloated belly, wide body, even its eyes looked bulged out. Off to the library to look for a book on fish illnesses...

    This batch is from two different stores. I get that they're $2 fish and I probably shouldn't get too worked up about it, but they're my favourite. :( It's hard to enjoy them lately because I...

    Losing neon tetras :(

    4 neon tetras have died since the end of April and a fifth seems not long for this world. I'll start with the water parameters and tank setup.

    Here's a picture of the tank:...

    Two more corpses this morning - a second neon and a cory cat. One of the 5 remaining catfish isn't looking too good either. He's just lying around, doesn't swim away even when I wave the net around...

    Really? How does one dispose of tiny fishy corpses then?

    And yes, I will sure keep a closer eye on my water parameters for the next little while.

    Hmm. Never mind, he's dead. Saw him drifting during the water change, so I netted him. He didn't move. No thrashing when out of the water, nothing. We gave him a burial at sea.

    I've double-checked...
  8. Oh crap, swim bladder disease I think

    One of my neons is lying on the gravel on its side, and occasionally tries to swim away but does so upside down and kind of spazzy. Isolate and treat for swim bladder disease, or just flush? And do I...

    Re: tank placement, I live in a townhouse. There is no location that's close to a water source AND close to enough electrical outlets AND quiet enough for fish. So I went with quiet + electrical...

    Yeah, we fishless cycled it before adding anybody.

    50% water change every week sounds like a bit of a pain in the rear, and will involve a lot of bucket carrying. (The fish tank is not anywhere...

    My filter is the Penguin 200 - claims to be rated to 50G. So it's almost big enough. :)
  12. Incorrect advice from LFS fouling up my stocking plan

    Re-posting from my cycling discussion (which went off-topic) in hopes of getting more visibility.

    So the original plan for my new 29G was: 9 neon tetras, 7 bloodfin tetras, 3 guppies, and a dwarf...

    OK, I know the "1 inch of fish per gallon" is a sketchy rule at best, but:
    9 neons = 9 inches
    3 guppies = 6 inches
    1 dwarf gourami = 3 inches
    7 bloodfin tetras = 14 inches
    3 cory cats = 9 inches...

    We did an 80% water change which brought the nitrates down from over 100ppm to basically unreadable levels.

    Update for the bored: still in the process of stocking the tank. Last weekend we picked up 3 guppies and 5 neon tetras to start. Last night I went out again wanting to buy more neons and a drawf...

    Honey Badger, hahaha thanks for that.

    Lady Hobbs, my husband came out of the downstairs bathroom holding the little test tube and yelling "It's blue! We're gonna have a baby... I mean, a fish!"

    Turns out boiling it and then disgustedly leaving it to sit in the hot water overnight was the ticket. Whether it stays down, I guess only time will tell. (If it floats up again, slate floor tiles! I...

    Wood decorations floating

    How can I make my nice little rosewood branch quit floating? I've soaked it for 4 days and it still hovers. I soaked it in some hot water a few days ago, and I think maybe that helped a little? I've...

    I have to share with people who will understand. :hmm3grin2orange:

    First indication of 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, high-ish nitrates. (40-80ppm-ish? We just did a 50% water change 2 days ago.) It's...

    Once the tank is cycled, I think the first bunch of fish will be a handful of guppies and a small school of cory cats. Then, I think I might go with a dwarf gourami instead of a honey gourami. I've...
