    Hi everyone, This morning all looked OK. I've had one cory on 3 day quarantine so far for some fin issues on dorsal and caudal fins.

    Betta fish fin’s look a bit tattered

    Hi! I just got a Betta fish about a month ago and have a 2-gallon tank with a filter and heater. I don’t know if I’m imagining it, but I feel like my Betta’s fins are a bit tattered. I thought it might be the plastic plants nipping them, so I just took them out and maybe that will help. Based on...

    Do Charlie’s fins look normal?

    Hi there! I’m new to fish keeping, but I recently saw Charlie at Walmart and I couldn’t leave him there. He is now my baby and lives in a 5 gallon, heated, and filtered tank. I let the tank sit for a couple days to try and cycle and have been adding Stability from Seachem to help it, but I added...

    Concerned about Discus Health

    Hi, About three months ago one of my discus accumulated so many little black spots that he effectively half turned black. Apart from the visual deformation there were no changes to his appetite or behaviour around the tank, consequently I put the change down to a very severe and sudden case of...

    Betta's Fins Drastically Decreased in Size?

    Hello! I'm new to this forum. I have a half moon betta fish that I've had about four months now. His fins were huge when I first got him, so much so that he seemed to have difficulty swimming. He was very beautiful; this was one of the reasons I picked him out! His first month or so went great...

    Betta's Fins Disappearing?

    I recently moved my lovely little betta to my 10 gallon, since no one was going to be in it anymore. He seemed quite happy with the larger switch and was relatively fine for a while. Recently though, I've noticed that his tail was ripped to shreds, all the way down to his body. I checked to see...

    I have a 5 month old female hi-fin molly that has been deteriorating over the past couple weeks. She's gone from being active, always swimming with my tiger platy and female guppies, to staying by herself with her fins clamped at the top of the water. Her swimming is becoming more shaky with...

    Gourami Got Stuck In The Siphon

    I was holding the bucket as I had to use a smaller length of tube to siphon the water due to my father placing my regular tube elsewhere. As you can imagine, holding a bucket with one hand when it's quickly filling with water isn't a good idea, so I was shouting for my mother to quickly come and...
