    How long has this fish been trapped in my plants??

    My threadfin rainbowfish are extremely skiddish, and apparently when they get scared they nose dive so deep into my valisneria that they get stuck and can't get out. I lost (they literally disappeared) one fish a week or two ago, one fish two and a half days ago, and one fish just today a...

    Corydora with injured pectoral fin and white area on his body?

    Update: My cory does seem to be healing slowly (black stripes coming back on the edges, more iridescent color in the white spot) . I'm no longer convinced that the wound was ever infected, but the antibiotics are at least keeping it from becoming infected. It's also becoming more and more...

    Corydora with injured pectoral fin and white area on his body?

    Aquarium salt dehydrates fungus or parasites, causing them to die. It works because the fish is generally less sensitive to the salt than whatever is infecting them. I've never owed saltwater fish, but I believe you put them in freshwater when they get infected. This kills things by...

    Corydora with injured pectoral fin and white area on his body?

    Of course. I meant that I may switch, not do both at once.

    Corydora with injured pectoral fin and white area on his body?

    Thanks for the detailed answer! My LFS only had Erythromycin, which is an antibiotic. I dosed his tank with that this morning. Interestingly, he wasn't acting sick before the treatment so it's difficult for me to tell if he's feeling better. I might be able to get Pimafix soon and I'll try that...

    Corydora with injured pectoral fin and white area on his body?

    My false julii corydora is injured on his left pectoral fin. About a week and a half ago he got both his pectoral fins/bones lodged in the aquarium background and couldn't move. He was so stuck that he couldn't even shake the shrimp off of himself and I had to pry his left fin free. His fin...

    Goldfish tail bleeding (?) with possible fin rot

    Excess mucous makes a lot of sense. I didn't know that! I'll keep it in mind if they ever get hurt again. Thanks for the suggestion with the salt. For non-metric people like me: 1 tsp per gallon is about 1.6 tbsp per 20 litres. Even though that's less than what you suggested, it does seem to be...

    Goldfish tail bleeding (?) with possible fin rot

    This is posted on behalf of my mother. I moved out 4 years ago but I am still caretaker of her fish. I haven't seen the fish in person, but I have some pictures. 10 days ago (Tuesday) my mother sent me this picture of my oldest goldfish: He clearly had torn his tail on something (even though...

    DIY Cement Background won't stop raising tank pH

    As a last bit of information, I did experience another pH spike a week or two later from my CaribSea Eco-Complete substrate (it seems my tank is cursed when it comes to these things). It was pretty significant, but none of the fish seemed to mind at all. In researching a bit more, I found this...

    DIY Cement Background won't stop raising tank pH

    The Krylon Fusion does actually seem to have solved the problem! Shortly after my last post, the water in my tank got very cloudy and disgusting. There was clearly a bacterial bloom that was probably the cause of the pH spike. I emptied the tank, rinsed it, and refilled it completely. I also...
