    Red streaks on danios

    I’ve never had these problems before, my tanks have always been great other than a few years ago when I made newbie mistakes. I’ve never seen this before! They aren’t swimming erratically or anything, just getting these red streaks. I got them barely 24 hours ago, from my understanding even if...

    Red streaks on danios

    I’m going to be honest, I don’t have a test kit. I just ran out I was going to get some next week after I got paid so I’ve been bring my water every few days to the lfs. They said I had perfect water conditions and they haven’t steered me wrong in years. I just got some more pictures... the dead...

    HELP FISH SWIMMING WEIRD MIGHT DIE

    Yes the tank was cycled and I got the water tested right before I got him. Water was at 77.2 Fahrenheit. My lfs has no explanation when I brought him in so it seems to be a mystery

    Red streaks on danios

    I’ll attach a picture but I just got danios yesterday, but they have red streaks on their bodies! Not all of them but at least 2 and 2 already passed... at first I thought ammonia poisoning but they aren’t struggling to breathe or go up for air nor are they at the bottom of the tank.. they just...

    HELP FISH SWIMMING WEIRD MIGHT DIE

    They can be but what confuses me is he didn’t look at all like he had ph shock or ammonia poisoning.

    HELP FISH SWIMMING WEIRD MIGHT DIE

    Update: he died. I’ve been watching his so carefully and within an hour he stopped swimming right and died... because of the kind of fish he is I’m not sure the store will do anything about it

    HELP FISH SWIMMING WEIRD MIGHT DIE

    I just got my water tested yesterday before I got my electric Blue ram (all at my lfs who has never steered me wrong)- he’s now swimming all sorts of ways. He’s having trouble staying above the gravel too. His colors are perfectly fine other than some white around his belly but that might be...

    29 Gal Cherry Barbs Stocking

    The dgh is 12, not as bad as I thought it was and I just have the imagitarium water conditioner to treat it, but by the bath water I just meant it tested better than water from the sink. We have an extra filter for our shower idk how that works tbh but our tap water can taste like iron a lot...

    29 Gal Cherry Barbs Stocking

    Yes I intend to keep the 10 gallon. It's very relaxing to watch them all swim around and I love having something to care for. I'll move the mollies into a bigger tank for sure thanks

    29 Gal Cherry Barbs Stocking

    Thanks!!! I dont really trust employees anymore so that advice is helpful. I can definitely upgrade for the mollies, should they just go in the 29 or bigger? They seem super happy and content in the 10 gallon I wouldn't have known that. And any suggestions on hard water fish other than guppies...

    29 Gal Cherry Barbs Stocking

    Idk about the hardness then, I'll get it tested today but I put the water conditioner in, aquarium salt, and ph reducer in the tap water before water changes in my 10 gallon. My Molly's and guppies do fine. My filter in the 10 gal has a bio maxx filter in it with a fine sponge and a carbon...

    29 Gal Cherry Barbs Stocking

    The ph before I put the reducer in is usually about 8. I havent tested the hardness, the store never directly told me the results they just said it was pretty hard. I have to use water from the bath not the tap bc its filtered more and ik we have lots of problems with metals in the water. When...

    29 Gal Cherry Barbs Stocking

    Hi! So I'm pretty new to this and I have a 10 gal going strong rn. I made a deal with my boyfriend that at the end of the semester we can get a 29 gallon, which we are researching how to stock. We really want cherry barbs - as many as we can with maybe a centerpiece fish. I have no idea what to...
