    Gourami developing large sores and scales disappearing?

    Hi all, I am afraid yet another issue has arisen with my last remaining dwarf gourami. She had begun to bloat quite a bit a few weeks ago, but she fed and swam normally.

    Dwarf Gourami losing scales

    Melafix Hoax?

    Hello everyone! (wow, I'm back? :oops:) After (almost) finishing the first semester of year 2 in my aquaculture studies at Dalhousie, I've found I've learned more about finfish and shellfish than I've bargained for, and a notable subject has crossed my path while caring for my own fish that I...

    Recovering from a disaster

    A while back I forgot to turn off the heater during a water change - I caught it pretty quickly but the shock killed most of the fish in the tank. Looking at the heater filter cord and all the other cords around it - they basically melted. Then, around the same time, we were working on my new...
