    "Gray crust" on angelfish. Columnaris? Cotton wool disease? Treatment options?

    I have some mostly good news. The "crust" is all but gone practically overnight. The evening prior I decided to add a half dose of Seachem Paraguard (so as to try and not harm my snails) and when I looked in this morning the afflicted angels looked about as good as new with maybe the slightest...

    "Gray crust" on angelfish. Columnaris? Cotton wool disease? Treatment options?

    Considering it's only a couple angelfish that are affected and most others have been in the setup since January with no issues, I doubt it has anything to do with the source water. I can think of one other thing. About a week, two weeks ago? I added some Controsoil to the substrate in the hopes...

    "Gray crust" on angelfish. Columnaris? Cotton wool disease? Treatment options?

    I checked the water parameters, everything is 0 across the board and PH is around 7.8-8.0 (a bit high I'm aware but all the fish present haven't been bothered by it, it's just a couple of the angels). And the water is from a well, it never has any chemicals to begin with (and even then it's...

    "Gray crust" on angelfish. Columnaris? Cotton wool disease? Treatment options?

    I've had a group of angelfish for a little under a month. They went through quarantine just fine but within the past couple days I noticed a gray sheen on a couple of their bodies. Wasn't sure what it was but now it's developed into a full crusty growth, and I'm not sure what it is. To make...

    My tank is doomed...

    I ordered some Ich-X as I've read it doesn't harm plants or invertebrates, but it won't get here until Monday and I'm afraid the heat treatment did more damage than the parasite... Woke up this morning to a dead neon tetra and corydoras, and all the neon tetras in general look about ready to...

    My tank is doomed...

    Fixed the siphon problem (I need to use a solid hose and not those stretchy ones as they don't add enough pressure), completed the water change, temperature is hovering around 82F and I added a cup's worth of salt while installing a sponge filter both for extra bio filtration plus it adds some...

    My tank is doomed...

    I'm genuinely regretting having set up this giant fish tank. It's been disaster after disaster and now everything's on the verge of falling apart. Even as I'm trying to service it with a water change the siphon isn't working properly despite me just yesterday getting a new connection part...

    My tank is doomed...

    I do have Seachem Paraguard, but idk if I have enough as I already used half the bottle trying to get rid of ich that was on quarantined fish that went through treatment for an entire month and SOMEHOW wasn't fully eradicated as I've come to find out. I'm convinced I'm dealing with the most...

    My tank is doomed...

    All I have is a 10 gallon, which would not work for 50+ fish. No other extra tank for snails either.

    My tank is doomed...

    Despite all my efforts, all my quarantining, all my careful planning, ich got into my main 125 gallon tank. It's full of snails and live plants so I can't use any sort of medication so I started cranking up the heat and basically have to pray that my months of work and hundreds of dollars worth...

    Any ideas on what strain this guppy is?

    There is. It's a bright cream color with black dots scattered throughout and bright red streaks on either side. Considering it was a random offspring from a store tank though, he's most definitely a mutt. But a gorgeous one all the same.

    Any ideas on what strain this guppy is?

    Upfront, I know these pics aren't the best but all I have is a mediocre phone camera that doesn't track moving objects well before I get any "Post better pictures" comments. Anyway, this guy ended up in my tank as a stowaway when I bought a couple mystery snails. Yhey were in a tank with tons...

    My luck finally ran out (ich)

    I ordered some Seachem Paraguard today (apparently brick and mortars don't sell it period which is a little annoying). Also took the best pics I possibly could of the spots I'm suspicious of. I don't know what the weird squiggly line on the second fish's tail is. It's been there for a while...

    Just when you thought their lives couldn't get any more miserable...

    Also, was at the store again today for different reasons and grabbed a snapshot. Apparently I was incorrect, the beaming lights are below the cups, so it's that much better. :rolleyes:

    Just when you thought their lives couldn't get any more miserable...

    I've seen a video from China where they quite literally were boiling a dog alive in a cooking pot, it was still barking. Remind me again why a country that's too barbaric to even bother killing their food first has way too much control of the world stage...

    Just when you thought their lives couldn't get any more miserable...

    I didn't grab a picture as I was in a hurry, but in one of my local PetSmarts they apparently updated the infamous "betta cup" section, for the worse. Now each individual betta has an extremely bright LED light beaming almost point blank over their heads. So bright to the point you can...

    Unpopular Opinions (fish related)

    Speaking of giant tanks, I've always seen having a 150-200+ gallon setup only to have one big fish as a total waste, especially if it's something like an arowana that only inhabits one layer of the water column. So much potential for any variable number of combinations, the sky's the limit, and...

    Ever been tempted to "bend the rules" a little?

    You know, add fish that don't fit compatibility-wise one way or another and generally isn't a good idea but you want to throw caution to the wind for once anyway. I'm feeling that way with discus. Kind of want to just get one or two and put them in my 125 gallon community. Except there's a...

    What Fish Do You Regret Buying?

    My 4 three-striped dwarf cichlids (Apistogramma trifasciata). Was not the dwarf cichlid species I was even aiming for in the first place (Borelli or Panduro) and only went with them because I thought they were the only ones in the store that had females, only to at this point think that at most...

    My luck finally ran out (ich)

    Pics won't be of much help. The dots are so small that you could barely see them against the bright silvery bodies of the hatchets. However, there is now a new problem I just noticed. There's several hatchet scales that have floated to the bottom. My best guess is they're coming from one that...
