    Betta fin rot help

    I’m just confused about why this happened in the first place. I always do weekly 30% water changes and he was totally fine until now. He also eats everything that I give him so I know there isn’t any uneaten food.

    Betta fin rot help

    Here is a picture of my tank. The temp is 79 degrees, he has no tank mates, and I use the api testing kit.

    Betta fin rot help

    My water parameters are normal so doing daily water changes seems unnecessary. Would the plant fertilizer cause a detritus worm spike due to high amounts of minerals? Also, I should point out that the amount of oxygen in my tank isn’t very high due to low surface agitation so maybe that could be...

    Betta fin rot help

    Hi everyone My betta Picasso has fin rot and A) I don't know why he has it, and B) I don't know how to help him. He is in an heated 5 gallon aquarium and his water parameters are perfect (ammonia-0, Nitrite 0, Nitrate-5, and pH 7.4). The detritus worms in my tank are suddenly starting to show...

    Fin rot? Fin nipping?

    Hello everyone. I’ve had my betta for a month and a half and his fins are starting to look weird. His 5 gallon tank is planted, is 80 degrees, has no sharp edges, has perfect water parameters, and it gets a 25% water change every week.

    Did my cycle crash?!

    Should i continue to add the seachem stability? I added 2ppm of ammonia yesterday and these were my numbers today. My ammonia was at 0, and these were my nitrates and nitrites. My ph also lowered back down to 7.2

    Did my cycle crash?!

    The normal ph in my tank is usually 7.2-4. I don’t know why it even went up. The only think that I added that I haven’t added in the past was seachem stability, which I added 2 days ago. I did have a large air stone that was running non stop for 2 days straight so maybe that is the reason for...

    Did my cycle crash?!

    Okay! I added some ammonia and I’ll see tomorrow if it brings the nitrites and ammonia to 0. When I change out the water, will my ph lower as well?

    Did my cycle crash?!

    I just redid my nitrate test and got this... what does this mean for the tank now? Is it cycled? also, my nitrites were really high yesterday and are now at 0... shouldn’t I add ammonia?

    Did my cycle crash?!

    I’ve been using the method on this site. I’ve just had to add a couple of snack doses because the bacteria that converts my ammonia grew quickly due to the fact that I added some seeded gravel from another tank. How should I lower my ph?

    Did my cycle crash?!

    Hello everyone. I have been dealing with really high nitrites while fishless cycling my 5 gallon tank. They’ve been really high for the last 3 weeks and I was getting frustrated. I posted on a forum 2 days ago about the problem and some people were telling me to buy seachem stability to help add...

    Help! Nitrites won’t go down!

    I really appreciate your time and help. Would you maybe know why my nitrites went up so high and maybe how I could prevent this from happening again after I do a water change?

    Help! Nitrites won’t go down!

    I am in stage #3. Because I already have nitrates, I don’t know if going back to stage #2 would be helpful. But I can definitely add 1ppm of ammonia and then just wait and see what happens
