    Question Gas Bubble Disease


    0 Not allowed!
    Here's a new one...
    Does your tank have lots of bubbles on the sides or top?
    You and your fish may have Gas Bubble Disease.
    It's like having the Bends for a diver when there's a sudden rush of too much oxygen. Uncomfortable for the fish I would think.
    To test for this gather water from the tank in a jar with a lid. Screw the lid on the jar while still under water. Make sure its full to the top. In a while *(no time frame was given to me at fish store) open and see if there are lots of bubbles on top. If there are...too much oxygen. To remedy...do something to lessen oxygen. Shorten the drop from the lip of the pump/filter or remove or shorten your bubble wall.

    That is interesting, Lynn. I get bubbles immediately after a water change, but it goes away very quickly.

    too much protein in the water (from food particles) can cause some bubbles at the top of the water also....

    I did this to see if that was the problem in my 20 gallon tank and especially Groucho a Red Wag Platy. Waited about 20 minutes. NO bubbles. Seems to me that it would affect ALL of them though. Anyway. The pet store had just gotten info in on Gas Bubble Disease and thought I'd share.
