    Betta Ich? Please let me know.

    I just bought a betta yesterday and I didn't notice until I had added him to my 29 gallon tank. I was watching him intently to see how he would do with my community fish and he was doing really well but then I saw this spot on him. I took him out right away, and now he's in a 5 gallon tank so I...

    White dots on fish, I don’t think it’s ich?

    Hi! I know I’m probably annoying with all my questions but. I recently got a new tank and the filter was very loud. The company sent me a new filter today. I rinsed it well and put it in to replace the old very loud filter. Directly after installing the new filter I noticed quite a bit of white...

    White stuff growing out of my fish!!

    Hi guys I have an Angel Fish and recently I noticed these white things on my fish. Immediately I though it must be ich, but I don’t really think it is. There might be a few very faint white spots on the fins, but the main thing you can see is the white stuff coming out of his head. Please help...
