    Livebearer white tail disease?

    Hi all, After a few years I decided to convert my 30 gallon gourami tank into a livebearer community tank. I re-homed the last surviving gourami and added 4 platys, 9 guppies and 8 tetra. Stupidly I didn’t quarantine in any way and now regretting it (I’m not an experienced fish keeper I’ve only...

    Molly with white spots. Is it fungus?

    Hello all. I noticed last night that one of my full black mollies has some "faint" or "soft" white spots on him. At a glance, it does not look like ich like I experienced before, these seem a tiny bigger, and it's kind of fainted (the picture below doesn't make it justice). From what I saw...

    New Fish and Shrimp and Fuzzies

    Hello everyone, thank you for taking a look here at my situation and giving me opinions. A few days back I got some new fish and set up multiple tanks anew in addition to adding to one of my current tanks. The only problem is with my betta and by extension my new shrimp. Originally the betta...

    Problem with Neon Tetra?

    Hello, I added 11 neons to my 30 gallon about 2 weeks ago and I noticed a day or 2 ago that one fish has some discoloration around its belly and near the dorsal fin. It's not acting unusual, eating fine and showing no other symptoms. The tank also has 5 cherry shrimp and several live plants...

    Flesh eating bacteria???

    Title is an attention grabber, I know, but I am back again after having minimal issues with Grosso! (insert massive sigh here) I got sick of the 10 gallon shortly after experiencing back to back canister issues and it almost killing him, so shortly after I upgraded to a 36G and things have been...

    What in the heck happened?

    So this morning I noticed my betta was missing, but I didn’t have time to look for her until after school. It appears as if she is attached to the driftwood by some sort of fungus. Does anyone know what this is or how it happened? I don’t know if she is dead, but I will update in a few.

    The best brand for fungus medicine that won’t kill my elephant snails???

    My fish recently had a bit of a stress with a water change after I left my tank a little too long before cleaning. My water is perfect but I think it stressed them out a bit. One of my endler guppies appears to have tail rot from what I can determine and a couple of my glow light tetras have a...

    Fungal bloom from new driftwood took over tank

    I added a large piece of driftwood to my 10 gallon tank. It grew the usual white-clear fuzzy fungus film, but instead of just sticking to the wood, it seems to have taken over the entire tank. It's all over my plants and the substrate. A couple of my plants died because their stems rotted. This...

    Should I treat for fungal

    A couple of my females are starting to look a bit beat up. I think it’s from the males harassing them to much. I also notice the females going for each other. I did have a 1 to 3 ratio but some died from old age(Nothing was wrong with them). There is a lot of female juveniles growing up so in...

    Betta White Growth

    Hi, First time here and was hoping for some help with my Betta. He unfortunately wasn't that well taken care of for a while and developed a large white streak on his underside that I wasn't initially sure what to do with. I increased frequently of water changes (once every 5-7 days with his...

    Betta fungal infection isn’t responding to treatment

    I initially did a salt treatment in a quarantine bucket, but didn’t feel good leaving him in a bucket that I couldn’t hide from inquisitive toddlers, so I moved him back into the tank and started an anti fungal treatment. I have been adding treatment every day and changing water every other day...

    Can I treat for fungus with a holding female?

    I’ll start with TLDR: -Can I use an anti fungal treatment with a currently mouth brooding female, and clown loaches and a pleco? -Can I also use salt with these species to enhance treatment? -Should I just improve water quality and see if the small amount of fungus on one fish goes away...

    Driftwood Fungus is taking over my tank!

    Hi! I have a piece of driftwood that grew driftwood fungus almost immediately about 6 weeks ago. I looked around online and was told to leave it be and it'll go away. Well, it hasn't gone away and has now appeared to spread to my plants. I also have a very thick biofilm that my 3 gardneri...

    Fungus, Ick or something else??

    1 of my black mollies has some weird disease. Just noticed it this morning. All the other fish in the tank look fine. At first I thought it was Ick but then noticed it is actually bumps on his tail but only 1 side. Seems to have white spots on his body & his color is not as black. Water...
