    Fin ray count

    This was used to express how many caudal fin rays there are in a fish. The highlighted part. What does this mean?

    Hara jerdoni feeding

    I have read that they are susceptible to nitrate spikes so I only got them after I was satisfied with my water parameters.

    Hara jerdoni feeding

    I have 6 Asian stone catfish or anchor catfish and I was wondering how to find out if they have been eating well? I have a yo-yo loach, four sterbai corydoras and one pleco, I was told the yo-yo loach could fit in a 20 gallon and live on its own, however I have recently found out that the shop...

    Red sore on gourami

    The dwarf gourami has died already. I think it was because I only cleaned the tank every two weeks and coupled with the fact that I had ran out of bacteria. The high ammonia levels might have been the cause of this and for the infection of the wound.

    Fungus growing on wound

    Maybe constantly as in twice a day? He isn’t looking too well now though.

    Fungus growing on wound

    Oh ok, thanks. But his wound is still there and I was thinking of using melafix to treat the wound. How long should I be giving salt baths to the gourami? Can the medicine be harmful to the fish?

    Fungus growing on wound

    Um actually I had separated the gourami when I gave it the salt bath. Could I just buy the medication as a precaution? Would constant salt baths be okay for the fish? Thanks in advance.

    Fungus growing on wound

    The salt did make it go down a little, so I should avoid the medicine? Let’s say I still use the medicine, should I separate the fish.

    Fungus growing on wound

    Sorry that I have so many questions but what about the bloating and my gouramis huge belly, is it just being fed too much or something else? Is the reddening on the lips a sign of something?

    Fungus growing on wound

    When I add in the medicine and all, can I separate the fish from the rest and also give it a salt bath? How long should I give the salt bath to it for?

    Fungus growing on wound

    Oh ok thank you. I am planning to use some Melafix and maybe some fungal killer too, is that okay? Now there is a white stringy thing coming out of the wound.

    Fungus growing on wound

    I do not know what it wrong with it. I am really hoping it is not the dwarf gourami iridovirus but I cannot really identify what is wrong with it. There is this red marking on its lips. I have given it a salt bath, 5g/litre

    Thank you for the advice. What does excess mucus look like?

    Fungus growing on wound

    Previously, I have posted that my gourami had a wound on him and now it is growing fungus. Can I use API Fungus cure to treat it? Should I start using something to let it heal quicker? My water quality had actually become a bit worse because for a period of time I ran out of bacteria to use.

    Red sore on gourami

    Hi I think I may have a reason. The ammonia has not fully gone down. However the last time I had tested the water there was zero ammonia, zero nitrites and Low nitrates
