    Gourami Fin Rot or Fin Nipping?

    Oh no...... I don't think I can return the tiger barbs because it's definitely been past 30 days- It's also definitely not in me to euthanize the fish and I doubt my parents would let me anyway. Is there really nothing else I can do? I'm really regretting getting the tiger barbs now

    Gourami Fin Rot or Fin Nipping?

    How much space do tiger barbs require? I was under the impression that even 20 gallons would be an ample amount of space for 6 tiger barbs, and thought I had plenty of extra space for other fish.... :oops:

    Gourami Fin Rot or Fin Nipping?

    Thank you for being direct first of all, I know this is a mess of a tank and I'm just trying to salvage it at this point. Right now, the molly is safe and even pushes the tiger barbs around a bit if they get too close because they're really small when compared to the molly. Unfortunately I do...

    Gourami Fin Rot or Fin Nipping?

    Now that I think about it, I don't have any extra tanks and thought I couldn't move the fish anywhere else because I didn't have any spare heaters, but I do have multiple 5 gallon buckets that I could maybe put outdoors in the shade to keep the temperature up? If it was confirmed to be fin rot I...

    Gourami Fin Rot or Fin Nipping?

    Thanks, the reason I was mainly concerned was because of the prior molly death and how the gourami seemed to be fine for a month. It felt like too much of a coincidence for the molly to die and the gourami to suddenly get "nipped" within the time frame of a week. Really hoping it isn't a...

    Gourami Fin Rot or Fin Nipping?

    I used to do water changes once a week last month, but I've recently switched to once ever two weeks where I change about 30%-40% of the water because the tank is pretty understocked. As for the matter of nitrates, nitrites, and ammonia, I've begged my parents to get a testing kit, but they say...

    Gourami Fin Rot or Fin Nipping?

    So... This has been a really horrible year with my fish tank stocking. My 30 gallon tank has 6 tiger barbs, 1 Dalmatian molly, 4 albino corydora catfish, and a dwarf gourami. There's a little background to how I ended up with this mix of fish. At first, I wanted a species-only tank with tiger...

    Corydora Catfish Acting Weirdly??

    Ohhhh... That seems like a good theory. But it's been a little more than two weeks since the fish have been in the tank and the only species affected is the peppered corydoras. Even the albino corydoras and tiger barbs and fine and active.

    Corydora Catfish Acting Weirdly??

    I put in a really big piece of driftwood that they can sit inside but only 1 of them used it. I checked up on the tank an hour later and one of the corydoras was dead (again with its eyes pecked out). I never see the tiger barbs bully the corydoras enough to kill them; its always just a speedy...

    Corydora Catfish Acting Weirdly??

    ? Thank you for your input! I've heard similar things but I don't think I can give the corydoras away now in the current situation for the reasons mentioned above. And I don't think I can just let the peppered catfish die at this point without doing anything. They were fine for about a week, I'm...

    Corydora Catfish Acting Weirdly??

    I have a 29 gallon semi-planted tank. We cycled the tank then put in fish about 3 weeks ago. We put in 2 albino corydoras and 3 peppered corydoras and only realized that they had to be in groups of 4+ of the same type after we got them. By then it was too late, and due to the covid-19 situation...

    29 Gallon Tank Stocking

    I think my final decided tank stocking so far is: - 5 Tiger Barbs - 2 Green Barbs - 5 Corydoras Would this work?

    29 Gallon Tank Stocking

    I went to a pet store yesterday with a sample of aquarium water and they said that the ph was 6.2 - 6.8.

    29 Gallon Tank Stocking

    I finally found my water hardness (?) on the website. I'm not sure whether this means I have hard or soft water though.

    29 Gallon Tank Stocking

    Wow thank you for that much information. Awww, I was really looking forward to the tiger barbs. I don't think any fish stores near me have five band barbs. :( Would 7-9 rasboras or skirt tetras work instead? I'll have to ask my dad about the water provider later today, but I've been letting it...

    29 Gallon Tank Stocking

    I've been cycling a 29 gallon tank for over a month because I couldn't decide what to put in it. I think my final choices might be: - 5 to 7 Tiger Barbs - 2 Gouramis - 4 Platy Fish Would these fish work together peacefully and if they do, what should I feed them?

    Goldfish Fin Rot?

    These were the only pictures I could get after 15 minutes of taking pictures and filling up my storage data..... They’re really bad, I’m sorry! :(

    Goldfish Fin Rot?

    She gets really excited whenever I go near the tank, because she thinks she’ll get fed. I tried to get a picture this morning, but you couldn’t see anything. I’ll try again in a few hours. Sorry! I’ll try to change more water daily. The temperature now fluctuates between 78 and 80 degrees...
