    Zebra Danio Injury? Disease?

    Hello, 1 of my 6 Zebra Danios has had a few issues the past few weeks. I noticed a white spot on its mouth, at first I didn't do anything as it was going down fast, a few days later the white spot had completely gone. No other fish in the tank had got it either. A day later, I noticed a lump...

    Sick Cichlid: any idea what this is?

    I was doing a water change yesterday on my cichlid tank (75g, with 5 African cichlids, not 100% sure of specific fish names) and I noticed this little guy. I quickly got him out and placed him in a hospital tank. Before I did my water change the parameters in the 75g were: Temp: 80 F (26.6 C)...

    Terrible fish injury

    During the night one of my fish tore into my badis badis. The whole side of his face is practically gone. Surprisingly he is alive and eating a little bit. I moved him to a more peaceful tank. I’ve been using melafix. I’m wondering if there’s anything else I should do? How often should I do...

    Fish stuck to filter

    i just found my livebearer stuck to the filter intake, so I turned it off and he floated down from it. He was in shock for a few minutes but now he's swimming around again at almost full health, even eating food. The only thing now is that, since his rear fin has been slightly torn up, he's open...

    Unknown Disease / Injury In Blue Gourami?

    Okay, before I post anything, please note that I know how stupid I am for having two Gourami's in a ten gallon. I know I should get a 20 gallon, but I didn't have enough money to get it, and the needed equipment, like a filter, heater, and decor. So please do not even think of saying anything...

    Please Confirm My Diagnosis

    Hello everyone,   In my community tank I have a bala shark with what I believe to be an injury on its nose. Other family members state it was not there two days ago. The injury is about 2mm wide. If I had to describe it, I would call it a burst blister. Opinions sought and much appreciated.  ...
