    Help Betta Has Severe Fin And Tail Rot!

    Also best to keep him in purely clean water for now as the medication and salt can add stress to an already stressed fish. The fin rot will clear up by itself provided the water is clean.

    Will This Work For My Co2? Dont Wanna Gas Fish"?

    I would put the diffuser in separately as the ph change may not help the bacteria in your filter if you hold it directly in there.

    Pico/nano Tank - 20L (~5 Gallon)

    Cut down the toadstool coral, give the sand bed another deep clean, secure some of the loose structures on the live rock with reef gum. Remove a couple of frags that haven't recovered. Fresh phosban! Remove as much green hair algae as I can, manually. Try to remove some of the green star polyp...

    Nano Iwagumi Planted "serene".. That's The Goal!

    I would put these closer together, and I think it needs some smaller rocks at the base as 'detritus' to give it a more natural look <3

    Pico/nano Tank - 20L (~5 Gallon)

    It's certainly on the mend! :D Just wait until it's in its full glory though!

    Pico/nano Tank - 20L (~5 Gallon)

    The colours are a little bit weird, but here it is as of 5 minutes ago - I still plan to empty the tank this weekend if I can and do some major works.

    Bumblebee Goby Need Help

    Need stable salinity (1 tsp/litre salt, small water changes) and small feed - like strained cooked egg yolk, microworms, BBS

    Pico/nano Tank - 20L (~5 Gallon)

    Another small update; chaotic week leading to no time to do work over the weekend! My new zoas closed up a bit, hopefully it's just something in the tank (chemical warfare) that has bothered them.

    Water Colour Is Gross

    It may also be the actual tank glass, as cheaper glass has a greenish cast.

    Pico/nano Tank - 20L (~5 Gallon)

    Small update: I pulled the skimmer and cleaned it; the intake was clogged. I noticed the pump wasn't working either, and ultimately found it was unplugged! :O Lots of debris flying around the tank now!   Now thing seem to be settling down :) I will be pulling the rock this weekend, removing and...

    Pico/nano Tank - 20L (~5 Gallon)

    You're on the money - it's the same with salt. Because it's such a small tank, I buy 4 litre bottles of distilled at the shops. I mark a line on the side of the tank so I know how much to top up. I top up daily and a 4 litre bottle normally lasts a week or two.

    Pico/nano Tank - 20L (~5 Gallon)

    That's a beauty of a betta cube! I love it Nick   I'm happy to share my saltwater noob learning anytime! It is really enjoyable and the challenge stepping up from fresh is a lot of fun.   In hot weather, I use a surface fan that screws onto the side of the tank. I have it plugged into a timer...

    Pico/nano Tank - 20L (~5 Gallon)

    I will next month; I'm going to concentrate on getting the tank 100% first. I would hate to lose any more fish!

    Pico/nano Tank - 20L (~5 Gallon)

    I'm lucky to have a great LFS; picked up fresh seawater and some new zoas for the tank to replace the two colonies that are gone. They agreed that it was likely stirring up the sand after so long may have contributed to the fish issues, although they did point out the corals were unaffected, so...

    Flowerhorn And Pleco

    Possibly. Flowerhorns definitely are a quite agressive fish. Generally there shouldn't be an issue until they get to a more decent size - chances are however that by that time your flowerhorn will be very used to the pleco and hopefully they will coexist in the tank. You will always have to keep...

    Help A Novice - Why Won't My Plant Grow?

    I would second the earlier suggestion to look at your lighting - chances are that the LED you are using isn't suitable for plant growth.   If you have a good LFS, duck in with it and have a chat with them. Be careful they don't just sell you something expensive for no reason - lighting suitable...

    Flowerhorn And Pleco

    You should be fine, the pleco is a solid size and will cope with any aggression from a young flowerhorn.

    Pico/nano Tank - 20L (~5 Gallon)

    Update: The generator did what it needed to do and the tank was happy when I came home :)   Stirring up the (filthy) sand on the bottom must have loosened more organics than I expected, with algae rising quickly in the tank over the past week. I've just replaced the carbon and nitrazorb and will...

    Zombie Gourami Jumped Out And Now Has Skin Peeling

    If you run carbon then you'll want to treat him in a hospital tank instead, they are pretty easy to set up - a small hob with some media, heater, and medication :)
