    Would anyone be interested.....

    In reading the rough draft of my species profile for Storeria occipitomaculata (red-bellied snake)? Once I'm finished writing it of course. I would just love to get some thoughts and opinions on how I could improve it from members on here before I submit it. It's one small part of a much larger...

    Snail ID and questions

    I recently got a lovely surprise with my elodea plants, anyone know what kind of snail this is? I'm thinking ramshorn. Will it reproduce in my tank? I literally know nothing about snails. So far I only see the one but I really don't want an infestation since the tank is only 5 gallons. No idea...

    Cloudy eye not responding to salt

    I recently got a new betta almost 3 weeks ago. She has just stopped glass surfing, but during the first weeks she would flash and glass surf constantly. I tested the water and everything was good. I noticed after a few days of having her that her right eye was starting to become cloudy, from...

    Gender Confirmation

    I recently bought a koi betta that was labeled a female, but the more I look at him the more I'm starting to think he's a dude.

I was devastated as he was my first fish and I had him for almost 4 years. After staring at the empty tank...

    Injury or External Parasite?

    I'm not sure if my betta injured his gill plate or if there is an external parasite on it. I'm leaning towards some kind of parasite since I've dealt with scrapped scales before and it looked different. What do you guys think? So far all I've done is a 50% WC and added 2 tablespoons of salt. I...

    Hi!

    Hey everyone! I have a betta named Spike and he's my first and only fish which I've had for almost 3 years now. A true pandemic fish lol. I've learned so much during my fish-keeping journey and I can't wait to learn more. Here's a picture of the old man:

    Tips for Changing Substrate in Tank

    I want to switch to a darker substrate and I came across this in my research: "Because changing gravel can be invasive, it's advisable to move the fish into a temporary holding tank. If you don't have a spare tank, purchase a 10-gallon tank. It only costs about $10 and can be used as a hospital...
