    Betta Staying At The Surface?

    Betta Staying At The Surface?

    Hello :) I bought a little female crown tail Betta fish. All she does is float at the surface of my aquarium, or rest on the bottom/plants/decor... She's in a 5 gallon aquarium with 3 baby platys (they're not even an inch long yet) and 6 pygmy corys. The tank is cycled and my other fish are...

    Could Anyone Tell Me What These Plants Are?

    Hello :) I bought 3 plants from my local fish store. The names of the plants weren't listed, just said "Assorted plants". They didn't have a Co2 system set up for them and they didn't have a very huge selection of plants. So I'm assuming that all of their plants are pretty easy to care for? lol...

    Kuhli In Shock?

    Awh :'( poor little guy... I don't know much about Kuhli loaches so I don't think I'll be much help, but I hope that he gets better soon!! I shake my fist at the person who tried catching him >: (

    Nano Planted Tank

    Wow no posts yet? o. o Planted tanks don't need a Co2 set up, it just depends on the type of plant you get :) For example, if you'd like high light plants, then you'd probably want a Co2 system. All the plants that you have can live on low light and liquid fertilizer just fine ^_^ I personally...

    Planted Nano Tank Suggestions?

    Hello :3 I've never had a planted tank before, and I'd like my next tank to be a 30g planted tank for when I finally get a larger place (then hopefully later on get a 70g :P). But for now, just to experiment and see what I'm doing before going all out with a large tank, I thought I'd try...

    Is My Gourami Sick?

    I'm sorry your Gourami passed away :( *hugs* But it sounded like you took good care of him and loved him to bits! :)

    Is My Gourami Sick?

    :( I'm sorry your fishy isn't well. What are your water parameters? Is your tank fully cycled? Do you know how old he is? He doesn't have swim bladder because swim bladder makes the fish float and it's hard for them to sink. I don't mean to scare you, but my guppy was acting the exact same way...

    Guppies

    Do you mean that they are flashing? Like they'll rub up against something and make a quick flicking/turning motion? My guppies use to do that, there was a bit of ammonia in my tank, and even the slightest bit of ammonia will make fish flash. Do you see any red lines on your fish? Or discoloured...

    Platies Have Clamped Fins?

    Okay, thank you very much! :) I'll keep an eye out for any bubbles or other external parasites.

    Platies Have Clamped Fins?

    They do dart around sometimes... but not all of them, and they don't do it for very long. So should I not get any anti-parasite medicated food? Or do you think it might be a good idea, just in case?

    Platies Have Clamped Fins?

    :') Nope, none of my fish look thin, they've all stayed the same size : ) Just the other day they're poop was extremely healthy, but now some of their poop (not all of them) looks a little off (white and thin), but I am feeding them peas. I have not lost any fish with curved spines. And yes...

    Guppys And Salt?

    You can keep Mollies and Guppies together in the same tank :) I don't believe Mollies NEED salt, salt is really just used for when your fish is sick. Like if they're clamping their fins or have a bacterial infection. Guppies can handle salt as well, I've used salt for my guppies and platies when...

    Platies Have Clamped Fins?

    Thank you :) That list will help me a lot! The only thing I've noticed is flicking, rubbing and darting. I've been examining their bodies but I don't see any of those other signs... Do you think I should buy some anti-parasite medicated fish food for them? Two of my platies are still clamping...

    Platies Have Clamped Fins?

    :( Hmm... My platies are still clamping their fins... and now all of my fish are flashing... I'm not sure of what's going on D: I'm really worried.. I just did a water test and I have: 0 Ammonia 0 Nitrate (weird that it's 0 now) 0 Nitrite and my pH is 7.2 They don't have anything on their...

    Is My Platty Pregnant?

    Looks preggers to me :o If she's not pregnant then she could be bloated. If she is pregnant keep an eye on her gravid spot, it should become darker when she's about to give birth :) Do you see any dark spots in her belly?
