    Aggressive amano shrimp

    Hi all, I have kept shrimp for years now and have just come across some very aggressive behaviour from my amanos. I recently added some lampeyes to the set up and it appears that one or two of the shrimp have been predating them. I've not seen this before, and did inquire with the shop before...

    NT Labs Swimbladder treatment - warning

    Good (or not so good in my case) morning all, I had a poorly red flame tetra, there was something wrong with his swim bladder. Ignoring my instincts, I treated the tank with NT Labs Swimbladder treatment yesterday and this morning 7 out of 10 of my wonderful fish had died. I feel awful. It was...

    When a fish is poorly and won’t get better

    Good afternoon, I currently have a tetra that is poorly, can’t swim too well now as he appears to have a bit of a curve in his spine. Breathing gets very rapid when stressed and trying to swim in the open tank. I have isolated him in a small see through box that sticks on to the side of the...

    Anything More I Can Do?

    Hello friends, I just wondered if any of you have had experience with old fish. I have a moonlight gourami who must be about five now and for the last two weeks he's been pretty up and down. I've found him on the bottom of the tank quite regularly unable to swim, I noticed he had a torn fin so...

    Scales Going Black

    For a while now one my killifishs tail has been turning black. It's doesn't look good but she is fine, swimming fine, eating fine. I've checked tank water and thats fine too. It may be due to stress as the male killi is always very randy and takes it out on the girls. I think i may have to...

    Fish To Join My Big Tank

    I am currently wanting to put a shoal of tetras in my big tank and am looking to do this at the weekend. My question is do any of you have killifish that are in the same tank as some tetras. I've read there is a risk of the killifish eating small fish and would not want this to happen. I've put...

    Pop Eye Gone Bad :(

    I wonder if anyone can advise me on anything i can possibly do to help my fish. My golden panchax has had a dodgy eye for about a month now, she has been herself during this period with no lack of appetite or anything. I have been treating it with melafix but this doesn't seem to have helped...

    Pop Eye

    I posted a few weeks ago now about my golden wonder panchax having a huge eye. I've been doing regular water changes so the water is clean and also medicating the tank with melafix. I'm pretty sure that the eye is not used anymore since it's moved with the bulge behind it. She is still the same...
