    Help my fish are dying

    Help my fish are dying

    What are your tanks water readings? Also try a search on doing a fish less cycle. Take a little bit longer. Cost alot less than replacing fish. AND best of all NO DEAD FISH! Try giving us a little more infromation about where you are in the cycle and how big is this tank?

    can a mod move this to the approperiate area? Isolate the infected fish in a seperate tank so that the infrection does not spread to other healthy fish. Do a water change on the orginally tank.

    fast fish

    I actually disagree with durbkat a bit. It is not nessarly that your fish are unhappy some fish, such as silver dollars for example, are simple fish that are continual scared stupid. However I do agree on the point it that it may be due to not enough hidding spaces, but I have continually seen...

    I have 2 of the most beginner questions ever

    Alkalinity is a measure of the buffering capacity of water, or the capacity of bases to neutralize acids. Measuring alkalinity is important in determining a stream's ability to neutralize acidic pollution from rainfall or wastewater. Alkalinity does not refer to pH, but instead refers to the...

    Silver Dollars Darker Tail Edge?

    The silver dollars I'm keeping around 4 years old and a little under 6" and for the past year or so they have developed a black edging on the caudal. The younger two maybe 7 months or so and about 3" do not display this. And more resently they appear to have what I'm guessing is an uneven slim...
