    Who is this visitor?

    Hello all, I sat today next to my 29 gallon aquarium and noticed near the heater there is a strange intruder. I have never bought a snail, so I’m wondering how he got into my tank? My only guess is when I bought the plants for my aquarium he must have been in one of the pots. Can anyone...

    Plant Identification

    My dad got this plant from Petsmart and it wasn't listed what type. Anyone know what type it is? Next week I may put in a half root tab next to it. It does have some black algae on it, if anyone know how to remove that I would be thankful. Or if anyone knows what type it is, I think it is Black...

    Algae Identification

    This black algae has been in my dad's 55 gallon for a long time. Algae doesn't bother him, but for me it does. I was wondering if it is bad for anything. Anyone know what type it is? (I think it may be black beard algae)? What would be the best way to remove it, maybe hydrogen peroxide bath? I...

    Plant Identification

    My dad has a 36 gallon and 55 galllon tank. In the 36 there is one lonely plant and I have no clue what it is. It is also pretty torn up from cichlids biting it. I am going to ask him to transfer it to the 55 community for a better life. Anyone know what type it is?

    Corry catfish black spot

    I just got albino Corry cat fish from petco. They got a brand new shipment, and within about 4 hours at home 2 of 6 passed away. They seemed healthy and active like the others. They each had two black spots above the eye brow. I would love to know what it could mean. Should I treat the other fish?

    Dwarf Gourami Fungus Please Help!

    Sick Bristlenose Pleco

    I bought a bristlenose Pleco three days ago. I put it in and it seemed fine, just a bit shy. On the first day it wasn’t eating, but it would move around the tank and suction into different walls. That night I measure the pH and it was a bit high, 7.4. I put pH down in it and measure the next day...

    Not Sure What my Fish Have and How to Help :((

    I have a few mollies in my main tank & a couple weeks ago I noticed that my white/silver molly had some red right above/kinda in his mouth & sort of between his eyes. I honestly wasn't too sure if it was just the lighting (he kinda changes colors in the sun) or maybe he had fought with one of my...

    Springtails are driving me crazy

    So I have been at college and come back home every weekend to clean the tank. I let my mom feed the fish and when I went to clean the tank yesterday, I noticed a food pellet on the glass surrounded by bugs. I realized I have probably close to about 100-200 of these in my tank now and have been...

    Cancer / Tumor

    Hi, my butterfly telescope has a white tumor on her back fin. It started off small, and some advised to leave it alone unless it was harming her. So I left it alone for about 4 months, but now I am coming to the sad conclusion that it will not stop growing. I am not sure if it is possible or...
