    Aggressive Penguin Tetra

    I have 4 hockey stick tetras in my 40g tank.. 1 is larger than the others - was the only one of my previous group to survive a heater malfunction. He basically now rules the tank.. He likes to nip all the other fish, and only lets certain fish into the middle of the tank. He thinks it's his...

    Guppies With Dropsy

    I don't know about furan.. I have some anti bacterial food.. Maybe I should try that for a few days.. I stopped feeding them frozen bloodworms as I thought that might have something to do with them being constipated/having dropsy.. They like to munch algae wafers, and I crunch up seaweed for...

    Jellybean Parrots?!?!

    I wouldn't put one in a tank under 33g. They are generally aggressive, so shouldn't be in community tanks.. If you get 2 males, they will probably fight, if you get a male and female, they may breed.. They're only compatible with similar tempered cichlids.. The size of your tank is very...

    Need A Couple Bottom Dwellers

    We don't often get quality rams around here.. It's quite risky buying them, as they usually die pretty quickly. I do have a bristlenose pleco, but he doesn't really count as he spends most of his time munching driftwood. I think I will go with cories.. Couple different kinds, then add some...

    Need A Couple Bottom Dwellers

    The only kind of loaches we get around here are yo yo loaches (I think).. I am quite interested in snails, so loaches of any kind probably wont work for me. Someone local is selling blue and pink ramshorn snails, so I'll have to pick up a couple of each and let them multiply.. I just don't...

    Sick Glo-lites

    Ahhh.. That makes sense.. I finished the 5 day medication cycle.. 3 of the 5 are still alive, and are sympton free. No more yucky white under their skin. So I guess the treatment was successful to a point. Have to do a 40% change today to get the meds out of the water. Thanks for your help...

    Sick Glo-lites

    They were dull at the store.. I have a feeling they had just come in.... I don't ever check my parameters.. I do more than enough water changes to have to worry.. I did a 40% before I put the first ones in, 40% the next day as they all had died, another 40% a few days later when I got the new...

    Sick Glo-lites

    I've had horrible luck with glo lites lately.. Bought 6, they all died overnight.. Was given 6 more, within 24 hours their bodies were very white. It appears to be under the skin, so I'm thinking bacterial.. At the same time, I wonder if it might be some sort of weird fungus. I bought some...

    Old Betta Going Blind?

    I don't think I'm going to treat it.. I'm quite sure it's not any type of disease/sickness. He's been acting like a weirdo, but he does still come up to the glass when I feed him, and he does eat.

    Old Betta Going Blind?

    It's only his pupils that are going white.. He definitely can still see, but probably not that well..
