    X-Ray Belly Tetra Turned All White...

    it's a 30 gallon tank... there are 5 other x-rays with him, no his color hasn't returned yet, I left the light on all night to see if maybe it was too dark and the sudden change in light scared him. Tested the water this afternoon, Everything seems good, pH is a little high, but not excessively...

    X-Ray Belly Tetra Turned All White...

    I have 6 x-ray belly tetras, they're about 2.5, 3 years old. When I woke up this a.m. and turned on the tank light, one is a pure milky white color. I don't see any fungus, I don't see any nodules like ich or anything, I don't see evidence of worms or parasites... he just is a completely milky...

    cool. My brother found the cause of the leak(s). He found 3. Our petstore didn't have anything to repair it, so they have it on order. Should be in by Wednesday (monday at the latest) My brother thinks he can repair it when it comes in. Thank goodness. Unfortunately the tank isn't new. Bought...

    My Beauties

    Everything seems to be in working order, the filtration/airline and such. It doesn't seem to be escaping that way. But I don't see any specific leaks, I've emptied it a bit more than half way, and there is still water leaking out, so I think it's near the bottom. I'll have to find some aquarium...

    My Beauties

    the gourami's get along fine. I haven't had one issue. Granted I have a total of 8 fish in a 75 gallon (or did, now I have 4 in 2 30gallons until I can fix my big tank once I find the leak which I still can't seem to find) so there is more than enough room for them to get away from each other...

    My Beauties

    As soon as I get it re-set up definitely. This afternoon I had to separate them into two separate 30 gallon sick tanks because I noticed my tank water level seemed to be lower than it should be since I had just cleaned the tank and re-filled it. then I noticed the floor behind it is wet. so...

    My Beauties

    well I was trying to post some pictures of my blue ram which is a new world cichlid, but I had to edit the post to remove those pics cause they came out really bad and this is what I was left with. (I originally meant this to be more about my blue ram and how well he's been doing lately). I have...

    My Beauties

    these are a few of my new guys. I couldn't get a good photo of all my beauties, because they were swimming around too much and the pictures came out blurry. Ever since bringing these dwarf chichlids into my tank, my blue ram (not pictured. He was one of those that wouldn't sit still long enough...

    Moving Fish Tank When Moving

    ahh I didn't even think of that... keep the water in bottles or buckets and then reintroduce once settled. okay that makes more sense. I was just panicked when I realized, if I do get to move, what do I do with my little fish... Now I'm not as panicked should all go well and I move.

    Moving Fish Tank When Moving

    I am going to be hopefully moving (if all goes well) into a new house. I have 2 fish tanks. One has mostly rainbow and x-ray belly tetras and the other has a few varieties of dwarf cichlids and 1 blue ram. How would I go about moving the fish? cause I'll have to move the tanks to the new place...

    Kind Of Strange Blue Ram Question...

    okay... this is a serious question... I had 2 German Blue Rams. They were a gift from my mom because she knew I always wanted a tank with Blue Rams. (She bought me a tank as well). I have to admit I wasn't sure I was ready for them because they are difficult to keep, but I was kind of stuck at...

    Assassin Snails... I'm Assuming They Eat Flesh?

    I know assassin snails eat other snails... so I'm assuming they eat flesh too right? cause last night I found my oldest molly dead at the bottom of the tank. She was old, but it was kind of sad because I had her for so long. But I was out the door to an appointment... and I figured I'd clean her...

    I Don't Know What's Gone Wrong...

    Quick update... I did a second dose of this declouder medicine (It says it's safe for all fish and plants, both fresh and salt waters)... and when I checked this A.M., the water was crystal clear. Clearer than it's been in a while actually... and my Ram and the snails don't look any worse for...

    I Don't Know What's Gone Wrong...

    I used some medicine that is used for clearing water cloudiness and when I woke up today there was a marked difference. I just don't know if the water change helped more or the clarifyer. it says to redose in 24 hours if issue is better but not completely gone. So what I may do is add a little...

    I Don't Know What's Gone Wrong...

    I usually clean my tanks 1 to 2x a month depending and that's seemed to work for this long. But one of my tanks, my blue ram tank, decided to start acting up out of no where. After one cleaning, within 3 days, the water became a crayon green... and you couldn't see through it. I immediately...

    High Water Temp - How Long?

    as long as you keep the bubbles going then you should be fine. Temp wise... you can't kill Ich with temps under 86f unfortunately. At I think 80 it speeds up the lifecycle of the ich... at 83 it makes it harder for ich to attach itself to a host, and at 86 it can start to kill ich. again... you...

    High Water Temp - How Long?

    empty a bit of the water out as well... that will help the aeration flow through the tank easier. that is why your fish could be acting weird. if you have the tank at normal levels (IE filled to the top or near the top) there may not be enough aeration in the tank which is making it hard for...

    High Water Temp - How Long?

    when I did a heat/salt treatment for my mollies when they had ick/ich... I kept the water temp up 2 weeks. (not sure what it is in C, but I had my tank up to 86 degrees f.) I emptied half the tank so the filter waterfall would splash more... and added an extra air stone for better aeration to...

    Fish With Single White Spot And Another With Mouth Disappearing

    I'm not an expert so don't go by what I say... but because I have two sick fish I've been doing a lot of research. I'm thinking it sounds like it could be flukes or Glugea and Henneguya. Fluke symptoms - The fish scrapes itself against objects, rapid gill movement, mucus covering the gills or...
