    Bloated Gourami

    I have a male dwarf gourami named salsa, and recently he has grown very bloated. It seems more concentrated on his left side. I don't think it is iridovirus, because he has no discoloration or spots, or constipation, because whenever I feed him he poops it out a couple hours later, and when I...

    Need help with Dwarf Gouramis please!!

    I have a large community tank, water parameters are good, just did a partial water change a couple days ago, and most of the fish have been happy, healthy, and active for months. I added 2 black mollys about a week ago, I only quarantined them three days (apparently not long enough) and...

    So I've been working on my newest project which is a 75 gal planted tank over the past few months. So far, everything is going absolutely wonderfully and apparently a little too much so!

    Guppies seem afraid of new Tank mates

    EDIT: 30.05.22 So, I am not sure if the tetra has/had lockjaw in the firdt place? Is there perhaps something similar to lockjaw? When we got him, his mouth was wide open and he could only move it a little bit. Now after a week of treatment, isolation and a clean hospital tank, his mouth can...

    Opaline/blue gourami male bring aggressive or is this natural

    We not long ago got 2 opaline gourami. One female (pearl) and one male (opal). Male seems to chase the female around a lot. It is more around feeding time. I don’t know if he does it at night, or if it’s just when he thinks there is food. Is there any advice or signs to look for? the stuff...

    COLOSSAL Amount of Stringy Poop

    First off wow, pretty sure my fish is going to die. Based on the rate of excretion it looks like this happened over the course of a few hours. He is acting normally otherwise. I confirmed it is poop and not a parasite. I'd like to know if this is constipation and if so what treatment is...

    Dwarf gourami with pink swollen lip

    The other morning I noticed a pink fleshy patch on my dwarf gouramis mouth and I thought it was from a fight. The day before I also noticed that one of my fish got attacked and had died so I assumed it was from that. It’s been a little under a week and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better...

    Dwarf gourami ate all floater plants

    My tank currently had 5 corys, 2 otos and 7 neon tetras. Added a dwarf gourami a couple of days ago, a surprise gift from a family member who found out I had the tank, and thankfully it seems it's a good match for all the other fish. However, I had water sprite and some other plant I don't...

    Will these fish fight? help with stocking 55 gallon.

    Ok, so I’m pretty new to fish keeping and I was recently given a 260 litre/ 55 gallon tank. I’ve been playing with a few ideas but have settled on stocking with fish on the larger side. I am not sure if this will work as the gouramis may fight but any help would be greatly appreciated. I have...
