    Nerite snail... dying??

    I did several water changes to change the water then popped in a small filter full of carbon and ran that for several days before getting the snail. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk

    Nerite snail... dying??

    I am trying to use a small kids size glass for growing algae but nothing is coming of it. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk

    Nerite snail... dying??

    So, not that long ago I posted about buying a nerite snail from the local petshop where the others were dead or dying but.... I wanted to give him a chance. The first day he zipped around eating everything in sight. After that he slowed down but he'd more or less be in a different spot every...

    Molly chasing tail? has white spot

    I've had great results in the past with with spot treatment. That should work well for you. Your mollies would really benefit from a larger tank, 20 liters is much too small for mollies. Overcrowding and stress from confined quarters can weaken them and make them more susceptible to catching...

    New sad snail

    My tank is recovering after meds for months, the meds have been cleared and my remaining plants cut back but thriving. I'll have to check my GH test to see if its still valid, I can't even remember the last time I tested that. My test may have expired. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk

    New sad snail

    Ooo thanks! That sounds like good advice. I will try algae wafers first. I should be able to grow algae im the sun too. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk

    New sad snail

    Recently had to give up and admit defeat after a long battle with velvet. My two remaining occupants of my tank are two amano shrimp. I went to the pet shop the other day looking for more shrimp to add (they had none)... but spotted a tank with dead or dying nerrite snails. I bought the...

    I think my Betta is sick, but I don't know how to treat him.

    Adding a link I came across suggesting something called cauliflower disease... something I've never heard of. https://www.reddit.com/r/bettafish/comments/4a8bfx/is_this_fungus/ Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk

    I just wanted to suggest you repost this topic in the tropical emergencies section so you get more responses. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk

    No, fungus is definitely more fuzzy. I'd be more concerned that what you describe is either an infection or tumor. I'm not experienced with those. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk

    It is not ick. Ick is a peppering of white spots over the body the size of grains of salt. Is the growth white and furry? If so it is a fungus and fungus meds would help. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk

    Betta cannot sink

    I'm not an expert on fasting them, but you are still over feeding him. I'd keep fasting him though. Think of your betta's stomach as the size of his eye. He only needs to eat once a day. Presoaking pellets for a few minutes helps too. I usually feed about 4-5 pellets a day (my choice is...

    What is the most humane way to cull guppies?

    Any non deformed ones I'd advertise and give away free. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk

    Starting over, sort of

    That's about what I am thinking too. I was considering changing the substrate as well. Velvet was nasty! Everywhere I read recommended meds and said this was so common and eady to treat. I tried three different meds and during most of it a complete blackout and nothing touched it. I never...
