    White fungus on guppy

    So I put the second dose of erythromycin in last night before bed. Again, she is better and eating again. I'm glad but worried at the same time. Nobody else in my aquarium has these symptoms. If it was culmanaris you would think other fish would be ill by now. It's been days. I believe I know...

    White fungus on guppy

    Oh, I have a good description of the fuzz. You know when you put new driftwood in a tank and it can get that strange looking clear fuzz? It looks EXACTLY like that. Like you can see through it. Before today, it looked more opaque and was causing her mouth to swell open. Now she can't eat again...

    White fungus on guppy

    Thank you everyone for your help. I'm sorry I haven't gotten back on. I had an overnight wedding to attend to. When i came back this morning she looked a lot better after leaving EM Erythromycin and aquarium salt in the tank and was eating. I was so happy. Then, about 8 hours later she is now...

    White fungus on guppy

    I tries to upload a pic but it said it is too large. From the side it is white. If I look at her from the front it looks pink but I am thinking that it's a sore. I'm guessing she became injured somehow. No other fish have this in the four days since I found it so Im guessing she was injured than...

    White fungus on guppy

    Hello. I have a sick guppy. Four days ago I noticed she had very white lips. I did a large water change and watched her and the other fish for 24 hours. The next morning when I woke up I noticed that her mouth looks swollen and still white. I decided to start treatment with Marycin 2 since its...

    Strange cycle issues

    Thank you Colin for your reply. I use an API master test kit to check my water. My tap water doesn't have any nitrates in it, that's why I was surprised to see them in my tank. I have been feeding a little heavier because as you know, guppies are piggies and I worry that the babies aren't...

    Strange cycle issues

    Hello. I have been doing a fish in cycle. I bought a 36 gallon bow front and added fish after 24 hours. I didn't know about the cycle since the petstore told me to do it that way. I've been set up since April 3rd. I didn't see any ammonia until 3 weeks ago. It hits 1ppm per day and I change...

    Male guppies chasing one female

    I just did some research on scholarly articles and now know the reason why they are pursuing her like they are. Male guppies tend to favor large females, virgin females, and females in their receptive stage. She just gave birth 4 days ago so therefore receptive. The other two new females are...

    Male guppies chasing one female

    I think I may have to do that. I really didn't want to though. Everyone was fine before I added her. The males only spent a small majority of the day chasing females and it was divided up between the 8 females so it wasn't bad at all and everyone seemed happy. Why is it just this female they all...

    Male guppies chasing one female

    Also, I left out the most important part even though it's probably obvious. They are all trying to mate with her. She is now laying on the bottom of the aquarium so they can't get under her. I do have live plants for her to hide but she won't use them. Also, she is the largest. Not sure if that...

    Male guppies chasing one female

    Hello again everyone. I had a ten gallon tank that just had three females in it. It's been hard to keep that tank, plus my 36 gallon tank, plus my 5 gallon fry tank so I decided to move the three females to the 36 gallon. One of the females is my favorite since I've had her the longest. I drip...

    Mouth bacteria?

    I already have three tanks set up and don't have a hospital tank. Which i will get next time I buy fish in a few months. I bought this fish yesterday and didn't notice the problem. Should i take her back to the fish store and tell them to take her back? Also, I dont think it's culmanaris as it's...

    Mouth bacteria?

    I tried to upload the photo but it's too big. I know there is a way to make it smaller but I have two new babies and the husband is not with me today so I don't have much time on my hands. She is worse today. The mouth bacteria is bigger for sure. I think I see it on my elephant ear guppy now...
