    Transparent White Specks on Aquarium Glass

    Hello, I just got Ich (verified,) and have moved my fish (6 white skirt tetras) from their 20L to a 10g hospital tank. This will be their home until the Ich is gone from the main (now shrimp only) tank. I'm beginning to notice these on the tank glass. Any idea as to what they may be? From what...

    Betta Hospital Tank

    Hi there everyone! New to the community but not quite new to fish keeping. I am setting up a hospital tank for my betta who is having swim bladder issues from poor water quality and possibly the unsoaked pellets I was feeding.

    Oscar Trauma

    Please let me know if this should go somewhere else, but I wanted to thread out what we did when our juvenile unnamed red oscar jumped out of our 6 foot tank and hitched a ride with my dog. I mentioned it in my 227 system discussion but thought it may be of help here. I had to pry him out of my...

    Setting up a hospital tank for fin rot

    I think my betta may have fin rot as his fins are looking pretty ripped around the edges. Im doing regular water changes and using aquarium salt first. I know I can get medication if this doesn’t work, I was thinking of moving him to a smaller hospital tank if he doesn’t improve. Do I need to...

    Hospital tank size?

    So my betta, Ender, has some bad finrot and his hospital tank is 5 gallons with a filter and heater. And now that I see other people who are treating terrible illnesses, they point out that having a smaller hospital tank helps more with recovering. I've also been doing 50% to 80% water changes...

    Can a sick fish infect snails?

    I'm thinking of putting a snail or two in my second tank which I use to hold sick, injured, or pregnant fish. Is it fine to add some snails to clean up a bit even if I have a sick fish in there?
