    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...

    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

    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...

    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...

    Could Water Change Be Killing My Fish?

    I fed my Betta last night... he was looking good, swimming good and eating good. Woke up this morning and he was on the bottom of his tank, his body curved into a tight 'S'. he tries to swim, but you can tell he's not in good shape. I'm assuming fish TB... but things seemed fine until 2 days...

    Strangeness.... Cichlid (Blue Ram) Issues

    ok... my blue rams have never been the most active since I got them. They mostly liked to hide in or behind the cichlid cave. I rarely saw them except when it was feeding time... and even then they'd wait until I was well enough away from the tank before they'd sally forth. but at least I'd see...

    Do Assassin Snails Eat Algae?

    I was wondering if Assassin snails eat algae? I moved my two assassins into my Blue Ram tank, with 8 of the pest snails from my other tank.. once those are gone... what else can I feed them? Bottom feeder pellets? Will they eat food the rams drop? Will they eat algae?

    Blue Ram Cichlid And Assassin Snails?

    Would blue ram cichlids eat assassin snails? I'm unable to order more assassin snails from anywhere. My LFS can't get any in, drs foster and smith doesn't sell them, and online the only one selling them on ebay doesn't have a great feedback ratings... lots of negatives... and the other place...

    Which Would Kill More Unwanted Snails?

    I have over 200+ bladder snails in my tank. I got one assassin... obviously a snail that eats one snail a day isn't going to help. Still waiting on a delivery of more snails to my local pet store. (they're having a hard time getting more assassin snails in.) I was thinking of adding Panda...

    Would Blue Rams Eat Assassin Snails?

    Here's my problem. I had an explosion of bladder snails in my molly tank. I originally was going to buy a few panda loaches, but I chose this assassin snail from the pet store because it was cute and I was told it would eat a good number of snails. One snail however is not going to do the trick...

    The Panda Loach And Snails

    I have a 20 gallon tank with 2 mollies and a few x-rays. I brought in some live plants, and then the snail population exploded. (I'm assuming they're bladder snails), the largest ones are not quite as big as my pinky fingernail. They're pretty small. I've tried lettuce. I get rid of a bunch...

    Bladder Snails Out Of Control

    Ok, I have an explosion of what looks like little bladder snails in my molly tank. It started with a few and have turned into hundreds. I've tried to pick them out by hand, got rid of like 100 only to have 100 more replace them... I've vaccumed them up and shook them off the decorations, I've...

    Cichlids And Fry.. But Not Their Own.

    now, I know that dwarf cichlids like my rams, will rear their fry and protect them into adult hood... what about the fry of OTHER fish? The female molly in my main tank is ready to blow... and I was curious if (under the right conditions, such as, the Rams are finished with their antibacterial...

    Mysterious Scum On Tank. Can't Get Rid Of It...

    I can't remember if I posted this question on this forum or not, but I still don't have an answer, so I'll post here in case I didn't and someone has a suggestion. I have a tank that when I got it, it was in nasty condition. It took weeks to get it clean. I used bleach, boiling water, and...

    Which Medication To Use?

    Ok, Wilder has been helping me diagnose my new blue ram who had two white, fluffy cyst like bumps on his anal fin and tail fin. We've ruled out Ick because the spots haven't spread I've ruled out Camallanus because there are no signs of Camallanaus We've kind of ruled out fungus We've kind...
