    Food Dump

    Edit: It solved itself already haha. It's clear and stable again. No fish deaths or signs of trauma! Hi everyone. I have a 20 gallon tank with a few different breeds of fish in it. Yesterday while I was out of my room where I keep the tank, my 4 year old volunteered to feed the fish and dumped...

    Sponge filter crushed guppy

    I currently have a 20 gallon. It's stocked with 9 harlequin rasboras (they've been there for a little over month), a male Betta (2 weeks), and as of this morning, 2 female guppies (not even a full 24 hours). The male guppy who accompanied the females was tragically crushed under the brand new...

    Hi from the US

    Hello. I am pretty new to fish keeping, but it's been my new obsession. I just got my first fish yesterday after cycling for a few weeks. The thing that bought me here was 4 of them dying within that first day. It was pretty depressing. Anyways I'm here to learn more about being a fish keeper...

    6 New Zebra Danios, 3 dead, one not swimming well

    Hello I am new to fish keeping. I purchased a 20 gallon tall tank a few weeks ago. Today I bought 6 Danios and put them in. Within the first hour 2 we're dead. They were swimming with their nose to the surface and eventually sank down and didn't go back up. The third died the same way a few...
