    Favorite Fish Died - Now Partner Is Dying Too? :(

    Did a 50% water change last night with another dose of ParaGuard. Today the hole is almost closed. The circumference of it has turned white again with a small red streak in the inside, the signs of healing. The upper part of her body still looks like it may turn into another lesion, but no...

    Favorite Fish Died - Now Partner Is Dying Too? :(

    Well I gave her another paraguard bath last night for an hour, and when I went to drain the water I noticed almost like a 'scab' of scales on the bottom. Don't know if that was good or bad. The hole looks cleaner and lighter, but now it looks like another one is starting just above the first...

    Favorite Fish Died - Now Partner Is Dying Too? :(

    That was my biggest wonder - fungal or bacterial. I'm in the States so I can get it, just ordered it thankfully. Only thing that sucks is its going to take 5-7 business days since they didn't have it Amazon Prime :/ Hopefully it'll work, in the mean time I'll stay with paraguard til it shows up...

    Favorite Fish Died - Now Partner Is Dying Too? :(

    Forgot to add, Angelfish now has a clear but white discoloration on all fins - not raised, not cottony, not ick. The only way I can describe it is, its like Scotch tape? The normal, christmas present type that is slightly white. But she did freak out like a dog when I pulled her food jar out...

    Favorite Fish Died - Now Partner Is Dying Too? :(

    Unfortunately I can't isolate her - The only empty tank I have is a 5 gallon which I did use to give her the bath, but she couldn't move the whole time :/   The 20 gallon is *sigh* quarantining new baby angelfish from the same parents as her. Kinda put the cart before the house, but I really...

    Favorite Fish Died - Now Partner Is Dying Too? :(

    Thank you, I did some research and seems dropsy causes raised scales and can be fatal pretty quick. :/ I really don't know what else so I'll keep playing Clue until I find out     But I think I'll use this as my update journal incase anyone else has this problem.   Yesterday I gave her a 1 hour...

    Good Substrate For A Planted Aquarium?

    If you mean normal sand as in playsand, yeah I've used that too lol Just rinse it really well. I would recommend dosing liquid ferts then, and root tabs.  daizeUK, not to change the subject, but do you use anything special to hold down your plants? My cories dig mine up regardless of how far...

    Good Substrate For A Planted Aquarium?

    I use Seachem Onix Sand. My tank is heavily planted, but I also dose liquids and have Seachem root tabs under my swords and vals. No Co2. Plants are thriving. I have an old picture somewhere in my posts, but that was like 8 months ago. My tank is covered now, so you can see how it looks lol I...

    Jumping In The Deep End!

    Those all sound like good ideas. Im going to check my lfs out (after it finally stops snowing) and see what shipments they have available. I remember seeing a couple rams in the back area, Ill have to check them out also and see what kind they are. I know my options are limited due to tank size...

    Jumping In The Deep End!

    I've thought about it - however I can't heat my tank to the required amount due to my corydoras. The tank sits at around 75-76 F right now, with a constant pH of 7.6, and I heard they like 5-6 :/ They are beautiful though!

    Jumping In The Deep End!

    Ok, maybe its not really a 'deep end' - but its new territory for me :) I had plans to start a cichlid only take, but due to increase in work related activities, I ended up scratching the idea of having another tank! Maybe after college... hmmm.. Anyway, now I am left with my good ol' 45 gallon...

    White Covered Hole In Tail

    My honey gourami has a hole in his tail. Like, I can see the other side of the aquarium through it. It started off as a white dot, almost like ich but only in the one spot. It kept growing and started to look like pimple. The other side of his tail wasn't affected until it started to get bigger...
