    OK, so I'm new at fishkeeping. And my corycats got it on because I found eggs in the tank!!! I'd love to have babies catfish but I don't think I'm ready yet. I think I'm gonna let natural selection work it's way and leave them in the tank as is, but if they do hatch I really need help. I've got...

    Dwarf Gourami Swim Bladder Disease and Bent Tail When Trying to Swim

    My Dwarf Gourami has been sick since the 13th with what I believe is swim bladder disease. I isolated him in a quarantine tank and he seems to be doing a little better (at the start he was laying on the substrate sideways and could not swim upright). Now he can at least stay upright while...

    Fungus on Severum fins?

    Hello all! I noticed a few months ago that my severum has some white spots that are identical on both sides of his fins (left and right on his side). I thought nothing if it, but it seems to have grown in size. One side is more on the fin while the other one is floppy. I’ll try to post a...

    betta help

    Hi! Can anyone please help with telling me if this is a fungal infection or HITH or something else? I’m not sure what it could be and I want to treat it accordingly. I noticed a small patch on his head and the next day this is what it looked like. He is starting to swim around less but he is eating.

    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?

    Found worms?

    I am just setting up a new bristle nose breeding tank and as I was moving wood and plants from my old tank I found these. I have no idea what they are. Are they parasites or unsafe? Are they safe for fish?

    Why does my Fluval 50 just not filter water?

    I noticed today that my fluval 50 just wont push out water. I see the water in the tube, I hear the motor going, but no water.
