You did mention plumpness.
What does their poo look like? If its long and stringy and kind of white, it may be a parasite, which you could treat with something like PraziPro.
Have you not seen...
I do know that Costco also sells mattresses, if you know what kind you want you may find a good price there. I know their product warranties are pretty amazing.
If you can get a photo that would help.
Is it possible you have Buenos Aires Tetras?
Some fish do fertilize internally, (see cory fish reproduction) but I do not believe tetras as a general rule of thumb do.
Bloodfins do not have any stripes, they are a white/silver body with red...
Try googling for parrotfish. There are several shades of the blue-green that some of them come in. Some more blue, and some more green, but pretty much all rather vibrant.
I would not recommend chemicals like PH down, especially for this issue. These type of additives to tanks tend to cause more of an issue with instability and ph swings than help overall water...
:fishgreen:Do you have a moment to talk about the Parrotfish?:fishgreen:
So a few years ago, I got to go Snorkeling in the Virgin Islands and I saw these vibrant turquoise fish:...
One thing to consider that I have found to be an issue when I was getting pandas is the change in ph from the store to my home.
The store had them in a very low ph, and my ph was higher. It was...
Apparently the Medaka did have to adapt to the low gravity environment.
There's quite a few pictures and notes available at this link:...
Happy Pi day!
Ok so this is a short one.
:goldfish:Fish in Space :fish:
I am assuming most of you know that fish have had a turn at being astronauts, and there is an aquarium on the...
That article does not do a great job of supporting its hypothesis.
While I have not ordered from them, one of the senior members has always has nice things to say about them.

There is the same risk in small as there is in big.. just on a less amount of water scale.
If the tanks are supposed to have braces and do not, then I'd skip them. Many of the smaller tanks do...
I think some sponges and jellyfish have them beat for oldest animal. I'd not be surprised if there were plants older. Certainly there are several billions of years of known horseshoe crab existence...
Their bellies should look normal flatish/slightly rounded if they have eaten recently.
This low quality photo is mine to compare normal pleco belly:...
If the issue is the math of diluting out something toxic in the water (ammonia, Nitrite, nitrate) the math really doesn't need to be that hard and you don't have to really go into variables.

Dosing enough to remove all ammonia will stall your cycle, the BB colony will need some of the source to grow.
Your best bet is to just monitor and do the size of water change you need to keep the...
If you get mostly hard to peel peas, up your cook time 10-20 seconds more.
Some fish are a bit picky at first... kind of like a kid with their veggies. But a couple weeks or so and they...
If you want to protect your 55g, set up a QT tank. Doesn't have to be massive, a 10g is probably sufficient, and you can cycle it using media from your main tank filter. (or run a small filter...
Yes, green peas. If you click on the Pea sign in my sig it should take you to a photo tutorial for how to feed that I made.

If you are feeding pellets and you want them to sink faster, soak them a bit first in a small bowl of tank water and then dump them in.
I have a designated plastic bowl that was a gravy container...
I do blanch peas to make them a bit more mushy... but my plecos seem to like their veg on the harder side. They eat the zuchinnis skin as well.
I normally just feed potato raw. Its just a spare slice from cutting them up for mashed.
:fish:Horseshoe Crabs Save Lives... maybe even yours!:fish:
First of all I need to start you out with the fact that horseshoe crab blood is blue... like Aunt Beru's milk blue! And that is NOT the...
Well MSU has some great tips on drying herbs, which I would think would apply to leaves as well:
