    What should I do?

    From the start of this year, I realised it has been quite busy juggling school work, my own life and taking care of my fish tank. However, I simply do not have time for cleaning and maintenance of the fish tank and it is not turning out the way I initially wanted it to. Even after 4 years, I...

    Fungus growing on wound

    Previously, I have posted that my gourami had a wound on him and now it is growing fungus. Can I use API Fungus cure to treat it? Should I start using something to let it heal quicker? My water quality had actually become a bit worse because for a period of time I ran out of bacteria to use.

    Won’t eat food

    I have a female nothobranchius flammicomantis been eating anything I have given it. She had always avoided feeding and always hid out at the other parts of the tank. I thought it was okay as I presume they are not restricted to feeding at the top part of the tank. I realised she was much thinner...

    Killifish swimming at the base of the tank

    Killifish likes to hide and the bottom of the tank and almost hugs the substrate. Is that normal behaviour? My first time keeping them and I have read that they are usually like top dwellers.I also thought they wouldn’t stay at the base so much as their mouth is pointed upwards so like feed from...

    Floating corydora?

    My corydora has been exhibiting weird behaviour. He has started to hover around the middle area of the tank and is moving slowly. Is this a swim bladder issue? Has anyone encountered this before? Thanks.

    Setting up a planted tank

    Hi, I have a tank already set up but it is not planted in anyway (as in the plants are not in the substrate). It has been running for about a year and I am planning to change the substrate to the Fluval plant and shrimp stratum. However, I do not have a separate tank to store the fish and can...

    My cories schooling in groups of 4.

    I recently just got four more corydoras to help complete a school in my 20 gallon. At first all 6 of them were schooling together quite a bit but after a few days I realised some of the corydoras started gathering in a group of 4, while the other 2 were elsewhere in the tank. Is there any reason...
