    Pleco Pickle

    My pleco has a weird white slightly raised patch. It's not cottony, so it doesn't look like fungus. I tested my water levels and they are perfect and my other fishies look fine. Does anyone know what this could be? It looks like a little zit or something. DJ Fresh

    Broken Filter?

    I'm not sure if my filter is working properly, there doesn't seem to be a current and there is a film on the surface of the water. Can anyone give me some insight? I'm not sure if it's just a slow moving filter or if it's totally broken.
