    KH & GH

In the past I’d only ever tested ammonia, PH, nitrite & nitrate but recently I decided to test KH & GH as I’ve had a couple of guppy deaths. I’ve read various articles but honestly I’m still none the wiser on what safe...

    Should I put bloated guppy in an uncycled QT tank

    Thank you for your response! Just did a bit more research into prolapses and definitely looks like that. Do you know if a prolapse can cause fish to swell like that? Or is the prolapse more likely to be a symptom of something more sinister?

    Should I put bloated guppy in an uncycled QT tank

    Hiya! This morning the little guy has something hanging out of him. Can’t tell if it’s where he poos from but it’s definitely near. Is this likely to be worms? Also do you know if he’s likely to survive long in this condition?

    Should I put bloated guppy in an uncycled QT tank

    Also none of the fish do white stringy poo. I was always conscious of checking for that but all seems normal! I only feed 3-4 times a week at the moment . Is this an issue ?

    Should I put bloated guppy in an uncycled QT tank

    Than you so much! The water test kit I use is the NT labs chemical testing kit, never used the strips as I’m aware they’re not great. I was always told that doing too many water changes is bad for the fish, so slightly alarmed by the suggestion of every day…have I been given wrong info in the...

    Should I put bloated guppy in an uncycled QT tank

    The last few days I’ve noticed my male guppy’s belly is very bloated. I know this could be dropsy or constipation but there isn’t really any way of telling. I don’t know if I should leave him in the main tank with his shoal and take the risk that it’s just constipation or move him to my second...
