    White Threads On Glass

    Some background in case it's useful. the tank has been running for ten months now. The Mopani wood has been in since the start with no ill effects. Boiled and soaked etc before adding. I had a loach which used to hoover up all sorts of detritus around the tank and the threads have only appeared...

    White Threads On Glass

    Thanks TCamos and Guppylove for your replies, I already cleared all the glass after taking that photo so can't tell what the end of the threads look like now. I'll check some of the other photos I took and see if anything shows. I thought I'd have noticed the little balls on the ends if they...

    White Threads On Glass

    For the last two weeks I've had little white fungal looking thread streaks on the tank glass.They seem to be a central mass of white threads with very fine hair like outgrowths. None of the fish have fungus and the only unusual reading on testing has been high Nitrates. Here's a pic with a ruler...

    Is My Balloon Molly Ready To Give Birth

    Well yesterday was the 15th day of captivity and she looked no nearer to being a mother than any other day. When I came home she'd escaped from the isolation tank. I'm not going to put her back in. The babies if she has them will have to survive by themselves. I've plenty of plants and they may...

    Is My Balloon Molly Ready To Give Birth

    No Peaches, I've never bred them before, I've never intentionally bred any fish before and this girl just got pregnant without any involvement from me! Nature goes on regardless..........   She's still not given birth and I'm so guilty about her being in the isolation birth tank...

    Is My Balloon Molly Ready To Give Birth

    Still no sign of any babies, though earlier she was wiggling rapidly nose down and sort of shivering so maybe that's a sign. This will be her third night in jail but she seems happy enough.   Oddly, earlier on today one of the guppies joined her in the little tank. No idea how it got in, can...

    Is My Balloon Molly Ready To Give Birth

    Yes she certainly is Ash, but I'm anxious to know if she's near enough giving birth to be in the isolation tank where I put her. Am I causing her unnecessary stress by separating her too early?

    Is My Balloon Molly Ready To Give Birth

    That's a pity, I'm not a member of any photo sharing sites. I managed to attach pics of a sickly gourami some months ago, looks like the rules must have changed.

    Is My Balloon Molly Ready To Give Birth

    I have a Balloon Molly who I put in isolation 48 hours ago because I thought she was getting ready to drop her babies. No sign of them yet and I'm worried I've put her apart too early and now she'll get stressed.   I've forgotten how to attach pictures, maybe I need to post this first then amend...

    How Do I Use Filter Wool?

    I've added filter wool to my Stingray filter, in the areas where the carbon filters would sit. I'll give it a couple of days and see if it makes any difference.

    How Do I Use Filter Wool?

    Opinions please. I'm a newbie with tank set up using a fishless cycle started in July and finished in early September. I've got a 54 litre tank with a Stingray 10 filter. the fish are healthy but my water keeps clouding up. I'm doing a weekly 60% water change and alternately rinsing one of the...

    Fungussy Gourami

    Latest Pics of the Fungussed one. He's all better now, I ran some carbon in the filter for three days. decided not to add any Melafix as things seemed to be going well. He continued to improve and now I can't see by eye much of a difference between him and the other two. He is also now...
