    There is an API master test kit that you can get that tests for Ammonia, ph, high ph, nitrate, And nitrite. You will need to call your local water provider or get the API GH test kit to find out your GH. (General Hardness) 7 pellets sounds like a LOT to me. I feed mine only 4 a day and they are...

    Are you sure on that? If that is true, then why does my test kit specifically say you need to test for all of these water parameters? (Including the ones you said, were not) From all my experience, they are water parameters and for the purpose of this case, may we please just call them water...

    If anyone tried to raise clown loaches in a 50G tank, they would soon find out why that’s not such a good idea... I have seen some “Show size!” (As my LFS puts it) Clown Loaches that are over 8 inches long! They can grow to be very large. Have you considered maybe a school of Cory cats? About...

    Is this normal?

    That is actually really cool that they accepted him! That’s quit abnormal. I have never seen it personally with these 2 species, but I didn’t once have a single zebra danio in with a group of neon tetras. It was working for a bit, but then they got territorial over food and I had to remove the...

    No, when someone says, “What are your water parameters” they mean what are your ph, Nitrate, Nitrite, Ammonia, GH, etc. readings. Did you read up on how to properly cycle a tank? If you didn’t, here is a helpful...

    The OP said he is ordering the test kit. Should it come in soon @scowt23? If so, as soon as you get it, test your water. Your betta looks pretty bad, I’m not going to lie. @Deanasue is the betta illness expert here on TFF. She can spearhead this much better than I could. :)

    Here are the requirements for tiger barbs from SF: Temperature: 20 – 26 °C pH: 5.0 – 8.0; commercial strains tend to be adaptable, but acidic to neutral conditions are recommended for wild stock. Hardness: 18 – 357 ppm. Wild fish will do best towards the lower end of this range. So it seems...

    Hello and welcome to the forum! :hi: First off, nice tank! Secondly, your parameters seem to all be in check. Are there any sharp decor pieces that he could have scratched himself on? Did he look bloated in any way?

    Filter Question

    Can you adjust it? If you can, try to angle it either up, or off to the back of the tank. (So the flow is against the glass, not right down the middle).

    Nitrogen Cycle

    I was just pointing out that a typical basic freshwater tropical tanks ph should be at 7.4-7.8. :)

    Are you sure that’s actually fin rot? I can’t tell from the pictures. He is definitely a crown tail, and they naturally have that look to their fins. Im not saying it isn’t fin rot, I’m just saying it might not be. What are your water parameters? Does the tank have a heater? How often do you do...

    Well if the pit put was so strong, the male guppy that is closest to it would be struggling. When they swim in front of the outflow, does it seem like they are struggling?

    Any chance of a picture of said filter and tank? (Just use the "Attach Files" button below)

    Nitrogen Cycle

    Also don't forget to have your other parameters in check! Nitrate 10ppm and below (Should never be over 20ppm), Nitrite 0ppm (Always, anything over that is harmful to fish), and ph 7.4-7.8. I recommend keeping it at 7.6. :)

    Filter Question

    So the GPH of your filter should be 264.17. For a 105L tank, that seems a bit much to me. Are you saying that the intake (Is sucking fish up?) is to strong? Or the output is to strong? (As in there is so much a current.)
