  1. Had to euth my first guppy. Also, I have a tank bully. Help?

    So I'm pretty bummed. We just humanely euthed my first guppy. He was a beautiful yellow cobra guppy with a long flowy tail.

    He got some sort of fungus (I think) and his head and one eye got pale...

    We picked one up last night that fits the whole intake. So that should fix it.

    I also found out the filter I have is good for 45 gallon tanks. Mine is a 15 gallon column tank.

    It might have...

    I don't think so. They all look fine and have been acting normal. All the tetras were normal this morning, all bunched together, eating normal.
  4. Filter too strong?? 2 tetras and a snail down.

    Alright, so exactly a week ago I posted about a tetra getting stuck in my filter intake and dying.

    Today another has gotten the flush because of the filter. Last night the filter sucked the snail...

    He was definitely alive when he went into it. Because he was alive when he came out.

    He was actually stuck in it though, not just stuck to the side. Part of his tail fin LOOKED like it was stuck...

    Thanks guys! He didn't even last 10 minutes.

    As far as I could tell they were all doing fine. I just tested all the levels today and they are fine. All the other fish are fine.. And he was fine an...

    Neon Tetra Got Stuck in Filter.. What Now?

    So I make a habit of counting my fish every time I pass by. I was missing a neon tetra so I looked everywhere. They like to hide in the house but he wasn't there. We found him stuck to my filter...
  8. I might have spoke too soon! One of my poor...

    I might have spoke too soon! One of my poor little neon tetras got stuck to the filter :scry: We went to go remove his body and when I turned the filter off he was alive still. He's swimming around...
  9. Well it's been three days and I haven't had to...

    Well it's been three days and I haven't had to change the water. The ammonia has dropped. I've got some nitrates and no nitrites. All the fishies are happy and well, they are loving their bigger...

    Water has been cycling for 48 hours prior to test. It is just so mind boggling.

    But we figured something out. Tetras are in there now along with half the old gravel and an old decoration.
    ...
  11. We tested a bottle of spring water, because we...

    We tested a bottle of spring water, because we thought maybe the kit was defective, and it tested at 0. I tested our smaller tank and today it's closer to 1 than 0.5. Which is good timing I guess....
  12. I just talked to a guppy breeder and now I'm...

    I just talked to a guppy breeder and now I'm confused again. He says no prime because it starts the cycle to day one. He said to not touch my water or anything for 30 days. But that doesn't make...
  13. I've got prime in there currently. I used it to...

    I've got prime in there currently. I used it to dechlorinate. Should I put more in? What about after 24 hours? The tank isn't going to cycle in 24 hours? I think I'm misunderstanding you. Because my...
  14. Ammonia in brand new water is at 0.5. What should I do?

    I decided to test my new water before adding fish for giggles and it is reading 0.5 for ammonia. I just tested my tap water and it is at 0.5 for ammonia. SO that obviously must be the problem.
    ...

    I'm a notorious overthinker! I'm definitely overthinking it all. I just don't want any of the fish to die :/ I have two of the prettiest guppies. I wish I would have got better info before getting...

    They are neon tetras. I'll look into getting more. Basically we got them to cycle the new tank. But it looks like I'll be cycling with all of them.

    The new tank got set up, filled, and...
  17. I thought SafeStart lowered the ammonia...? Huh!

    Hm I figured it was a bit too quick. But I didn't get a water test kit until two days ago. So I was hoping I missed the nitrite spike.

    Alright I won't vac the gravel then. Good call. Wasn't sure...
  19. Awesome! How come I haven't heard about this...

    Awesome! How come I haven't heard about this until now?! I'm definitely going to pick some up on the way home. And it is fine to put in a cycling tank?

    Oh I know. It has been a week and they seem...

    I'd like to say that was a lot easier than I thought it would be. But I don't want to jinx it... But seriously. If that was it I will be thrilled.

    I've been waking up in the night to check on my...

    I'm doing the big change tonight and hopefully that puts it down to 0 ammonia.

    Once it is down to 0 and I have nitrates would that mean the cycling is done?!

    If it is done that means I managed...
  22. So. My latest water sample came back with...

    So. My latest water sample came back with nitrates.. Does that mean my tank cycled? There is just so much information to take in, and the current article I'm reading says that once Nitrates are...

    In regards to the 50% water change.. Since it looks like I'll be putting them all in the new tank, should I put the old tank's water in the new tank? It'll fill less than half of it, so would the ...

    I'll look into the Seachem, thanks. I'll find a bigger filter as well. Didn't know about that!
  25. Dang. We just lowered the pH this week. But since...

    Dang. We just lowered the pH this week. But since we will be moving them all to the new tank I guess that doesn't matter anymore. I'll avoid it with the new tank.

    I'll put the old filters in. As...
