    High nitrates, but water changes don't help. Any ideas?

    I have a 55G tank with plants and a bunch of shrimp and fish. All my water values were always stable, but I had to put in some Nitrofurazone and API Pimafix (separately, about a week apart) to try to fix some cotton mouth on a few of my neon tetras. Now I constantly have high nitrate values...

    Unusually swollen guppy!

Never seen swelling like this but she was eating and swimming fine until just this afternoon, now she is facing down..... The photo of the orange tailed guppy in plain background is...

    Goldfish Vertical!

    Can anyone give me insight as to why my goldfish is doing this?! The lil guy is hanging out in the back corner vertically. He is also breathing very heavily. He is usually very active. If anyone has suggestions to what is causing this and how to fix it it would be greatly appreciated! :)

    PLEASE HELP! Gigantic Molly Unexplainable - Photos and stats included

    Hey y’all! I consider myself pretty knowledgeable when it comes to tank things and what I lack knowledge on, Google to the rescue. But this one has me all sorts of confused. I “adopted” this Molly 3 months ago. My local fish store has a “Kae Tank” that he puts fish in that he can’t sell for...

    Treating velvet disease

    Hi all, I have just noticed a milky cloudy stuff partially covering the head of a guppy fish, it's also on the body and tail fin of my betta fish. They are also quite lethargic and are sitting on the substrate (especially the guppy). Though after some googling and youtubing, I'm pretty sure the...

    Filtering tap water

    Hello. I wasn't sure where to post this, hope this is okay. I need advice about filtering tap water. But first, I want to mention that yes, I know about RO water, but that is not an option for me at the moment. I really hope someone who has either dealt with this before or knows about it can...

    I Did Everything Wrong

    I started a new 15 gallon aquarium right at the beginning of September. I have kept aquariums off and on since I was 12 years old and I have never tried to update myself on new stuff as it came along- I just always did it like I did when I was 12- mostly it worked out (with some casualties...

    55g EBAs and Angels

    Hey all, I have a 55g tank that currently houses 2 male EBAs (still about 3in and 2in) and 9 black skirt tetras. I just picked up 1 Koi Angelfish (about the size of a quarter) to add to the tank but was wondering if I could get away with adding 1-2 more Angelfish? I currently have a 60g HOB...

    Hygrophila?? 🤔

    Any idea what this is? I bought a mystery bunch with all sorts of different plants ages ago and I've never worked out what this is... It didn't do well in the last tank I had it in, probably because of poor lighting and not enough nutrition in the gravel....so it's been pushing out all these...

    Recommended Filtration Media

    I have a 10 gallon freshwater aquarium that I am plan on keeping a few guppies and a couple of plants in. The filter I have is the Tetra Whisper IQ. I was wondering what the best media for mechanical and biological filtration would be in my situation. Most of what I've read has said that...

    Plants for 10 Gallon Aquarium

    I am trying to choose plants for my 10 gallon freshwater aquarium. The water I am going to be using for the tank has tested 0ppm for nitrate, nitrite, and chlorine. It tested somewhere between 150-300ppm for hardness and 300 ppm for alkalinity. The pH is somewhere between 7.8-8.4. If possible, I...

    Biorb questions

    Hey, I’ve just rehomed a biorb 15l freshwater tank with what I believe to be a female betta and 2 shrimp. They’ve lived in there for quite a few months but the owners are moving and can’t take them. I had a big tropical tank about 7 years ago but freshwater is different. This one little fish...

    What’s wrong with my endler guppy?

    I noticed at the weekend it was swimming close to the surface and not really moving around, the stomach seems very bloated and it’s swimming really strangely. I also noticed a few red marks on the tail, i can’t tell if it’s been ripped or whether it’s red spot? I tried my best to take some...

    80 Gallon, Lightly Planted

    I spent way too much money this paycheck getting this tank set up, but it is worth it so far. I have been running the filter on an established tank for over a month now and placed it on the tank yesterday, after adding my sand. I ordered some Seiryu stones and those have been placed, along with...
