    Please help!

    My guppy hasn't been right the last day or 2. I've just found him like this with something hanging out. I don't know if he's constipated, swim bladder, dropsy, can anyone help? I'm on my way out to get some Epsom salts, can I try anything else?

    Poorly guppy 😔

    Hi all, This little guy was being picked on by my other 4 guppies. I've removed them from the tank but he's like this now. Is there anything I can try to help him? Can he be saved? Hate seeing fish suffer. He is hiding away and isn't swimming correctly although he is eating.

    What is causing this algae?

    Thank you all for all your advice. It's genuinely appreciated and taken on board. There's a lot of knowledge here which is great! To get the worst of it under control we boiled and scrubbed the lava rock and got the worst of it off, and cut down leaves on plants that had it on. We are hoping to...

    What is causing this algae?

    What is causing this algae?

    Thanks for your help. I didn't mind it too much in the beginning, but it's beginning to take over and spread to some plants which my husband isn't happy about! I'm surprised bleach would be ok to use, do you mean just every day household bleach?

    What is causing this algae?

    Thanks for the advice, we only have the one 90l tank so no cross over. Have you had any success with getting rid of it rather than preventative. I know you said it's a pain, but have you had any success?

    What is causing this algae?

    Can anyone help with this? I've got a well established tank but a black algae seems to be taking over the lava rock. There's small spots of it here and there but the rock and surrounding gravel seems to be affected the worst. Any hints on what it is and how to get rid of it greatly appreciated...

    Hi all, Am a newbie here after some help with my platys. They appear to have a white fungus on their tail fins which I have been treating. However they haven't picked up at all. One now looks like she can't close her mouth and is gasping. Can anyone help with a quick acting remedy? I hate...
