    Algae overtaking filter!

    No, i'm going only betta for now. I have a cory, but he's dying. Right now, I only have one cory and one guppy in that tank. I used to have three guppies and two cories. But most of them died. I really can't handle more than one fish for now. And bettas are much more easier to care for and...

    Ammonia Resistant Gravel?Nitrate Resistant Gravel?

    A long time ago I was at a fish store, and I saw some gravel labled "Ammonia Resistant Gravel" and "Nitrate Resistant Gravel" and that kind of stuff. Does anyone have any info about this stuff? Just curious...

    Algae overtaking filter!

    I've lately been having some algae-like stuff growing in my gravel, on the glass, in the filter, and on the plant's leaves. It's also ripping apart the filter sponge. It's all brown now, with a stinky smell and looks ripped up. I've asked about this already, and was told that it was brown algae...

    Constipated Betta?

    I have two different brands of pellets. I'm pretty sure that they are for bettas, cause there is a big picture of bettas on the label. I feed him three pellets every morning at 6:00 AM, and then use the other brand of pellet at night at 9:00 PM, three pellets. So I alternate from day to night...

    Crabs and Turtles?

    I occationally see a small crab or turtle for sale. I was just wondering if they are good pets. Are they easy to care for?

    Constipated Betta?

    I see strings of red poo all over the place. It's very red. And it's been like that for a week or so. I feed him betta pellets. But i've never had a problem with them before. Could it be that the food is expiring? Or some other reason? Thanks!

    Cleaning out the tank and starting a new one...

    The whole sponge is somehow brown and torn up. It used to be white. I think that changing the filter media would be a better idea.

    Cleaning out the tank and starting a new one...

    That's right. The whole tank is basically falling apart. Crap and debris is really starting to build up, brown algae is in the gravel, on the plants, and completely overtaking my filter, the guppies and cory all have ich, the cory's barbels is missing, and it's just too much, really. So i'm...

    AHHH! ICH!

    Oh, and is you said ich is in every tank. Even tanks without filters? Like the one my betta is in right now. Hardly any oxygen. Less than a gallon. No filter. Can ich live there? And can they live in those little dinky cups they have in the LFS? Does ich need oxygen?

    AHHH! ICH!

    Well, I don't have a heater, so it gets pretty cold sometimes. Maybe that could be the problem. My betta doesn't seem stressed. He still eats. And my guppies are still eating too. But moving him to another tank would problebly stress him out. I don't know. I heard that they spread fast. But only...
