    Ammonia Resistant Gravel?Nitrate Resistant Gravel?

    A long time ago I was at a fish store, and I saw some gravel labled "Ammonia Resistant Gravel" and "Nitrate Resistant Gravel" and that kind of stuff. Does anyone have any info about this stuff? Just curious...

    Algae overtaking filter!

    I've lately been having some algae-like stuff growing in my gravel, on the glass, in the filter, and on the plant's leaves. It's also ripping apart the filter sponge. It's all brown now, with a stinky smell and looks ripped up. I've asked about this already, and was told that it was brown algae...

    Constipated Betta?

    I see strings of red poo all over the place. It's very red. And it's been like that for a week or so. I feed him betta pellets. But i've never had a problem with them before. Could it be that the food is expiring? Or some other reason? Thanks!

    Cleaning out the tank and starting a new one...

    That's right. The whole tank is basically falling apart. Crap and debris is really starting to build up, brown algae is in the gravel, on the plants, and completely overtaking my filter, the guppies and cory all have ich, the cory's barbels is missing, and it's just too much, really. So i'm...

    My plant is reprodcing?

    Well, when I first got the plant, out of the many stems with big flat leaves, it had one stem with a small lead all curled up. Over time, the leaf slowly opened and revealed some sort of seed stick. It looked like a corn cob. The "kernels" were falling off from the bottom up. Now, part of the...

    Interesting way of disposing a dead fish...

    Okay, I thought of this myself. I don't know if it works or not, or if it even makes any sense. It just popped into my mind one day. When a small fish dies, get a flower pot. Put some soil into it. Drop the fish in. Put another layer of soil in. Then, plant a flower seed. Then, put more soil in...

    AHHH! ICH!

    I've lately been seeing some white specs on my guppies. It's ich, right? Well, i've been thinking about making that tank a home for my betta instead of the guppies, but this ich just ruined everything. I see little specks in the water, too. No cloudiness, but if you look really closely, you can...

    Betta Flaring

    Here it is. He's a normal betta. He was in a cup when I got him. He was for my birthday. I heard that the LFS said that "He can live in a cup. Very simple. You just have to do water changes every week. But even if you don't do a water change a month, it's will okay. Feed him a few pellets once a...

    Algae growing on the leaf and gravel??

    I'm asking this question here only because this is the only place where you can post pictures. It would give a better description of my problem. Through the last few days, i've seen some red stuff growing on my plant's leaves. It got worse day by day, and it grew more and more. It also is...

    Fat Betta

    Okay, my betta used to be crazy for food. Once I drop those pellets in, he gulps them all up within a few seconds. But lately, he hasn't been very interested with food. When I put the pellet in front of him, he sometimes acts like he doesn't see it and continue swimming. I keep moving the pellet...

    Putting in FREEZING cold water...

    My female cory got swim bladder disease. At least it looks like it. For the first few hours, she could still move around and search the gravel for food, but after a few hours, I found her upsidedown and not moving in the hidey hole. I thought she was dead, but she keeps squirming and wiggling...

    Cory spiraling and sideways?!?!

    A female cory keeps swimming around in the gravel sideways! Although she still searches around in the gravel for food, she does it lopsided. When she swims off of the gravel and up, she does clumsy spins and spirals down as if she couldn't control her balance. What's wrong?

    Cories and cabbage

    Well, I feed cabbage to my betta and he loves it. And since I heard that cories were omnivores, I don't think that feeding them flakes and bloodworms every feeding is that good. Will they eat cabbage? I heard that if you rip a big chunk of cabbage and stick it on the bottom of the tank, a pleco...

    Cories and beneficial bacteria

    Cories seem to dig into the gravel a lot. I've been wondering if they will harm the beneficial bacteria clinging onto the gravel. Will they harm the bacteria? How about if the bacteria is just starting to grow and cycle? Thanks!

    Killing a guppy humanely...

    You can look into my other post here about why I want to do this. He is not swimming, is ALWAYS on the top of the tank, gills and mouth always open, not eating, and the others seem fine. He's been like this for two days. I think he is going to starve himself if this continues for a few more...

    Cory Catfish

    I have a 2.18 US gallon tank with a small filter, and three fancy guppies. I really would like some cories, but i'm not sure if there is enough room. I have live plants, and I use liquid plant fertilizer and Tetra Aquasafe. The plants I have are those ones with big spade leaves, one on each...

    Guppy not swimming!

    I got three fancy guppies. I got a two gallon tank, and a small hang on filter. It was uncycled. And I just learned about cycling back then. So I was told to do daily water changes. I did. And i've had them for a week now, still alive. Today, I stirred the gravel around, and I saw a lot of poop...

    Crooked spine on a guppy...

    I got three male guppies in a two gallon tank. One has a crooked spine. His spine area is slightly bent downward. He's also a bit fat on his tummy area. Could this guppy be a pregnant female or something? He swims fine, and is eating. Also just as active as the other two. But this one sometimes...
