I think my Dwarf Gourami has Dwarf Gourami Disease, but I’m not entirely sure. He was being bullied by the other fish in my main tank, so I moved him to a 10gal quarantine tank. He doesn’t have much of an appetite but he is still semi-active (he mostly sticks to the bottom of the tank and...
As said before, raise the temperature in your aquarium as this stops the ich from reproducing. Make sure you do this gradually, only raising it by 1 or 2F each day or else your fish will become stressed. Get aquarium salt too.
Is your tank densely decorated? They could be hiding, or if they died their bodies could be stuck.
I’ve heard that plecos are also known to eat dead or dying fish. But that depends on the size of your pleco.
So my tank recently had an ich outbreak. I took out all the fish, and left it running for about 5 days at 80F. I noticed that there were many ich cysts inside the tank so I emptied it out and it’s been dry for a day now. When would you say I could re cycle my tank?
Thanks. I can't find the exact numbers, but apparently we have 'soft' water, and since I've had my tetras for a year and a half now and they've been thriving I think that I might just stick with getting the Gouramis.
I have a 25gal tank with a pleco and 6 neon tetras. I was wondering if I could get 8 mollies and 2 dwarf gouramis to add to my tank? If so, how long between adding them should I wait so I don't upset the tank with too many new fish at a time? Thanks
Hi, and thanks for replying!
I haven’t tested the water yet, and I will do so soon. However, I was able to count and I have about 4 danios and about 5 Platies, give or take a few. There used to be more, but 1 or 2 always seem to die when I go on holiday . The Platies also had some fry while I...
Hi, so I’ve had my 40L (10 gal) tank if a couple Platies and Danios that get along just fine for a few months now. I started to notice that the tank looked a little... empty. I already have many plants and decorations inside, but it just looks like the ratio of fish to tank space is pretty low...
