    This is extremely stressful. Now out of my three survivors, one is on the ground not moving again. I went on vacation so I couldn't monitor the water everyday.

    Cloudy eye and white face on green terror?

    Hi! My green terror hasn’t been very active today and has been sitting at the bottom of the tank. Upon closer look one of his eyes appears cloudy and half his face has turned white. Any clues what this could be? Could this be illness or maybe from fighting? He has a small red mark in his eye...

Didnt lose that many fish tbh. Anyway so I'm back on track and my plants look like crap to say the least...

    I got 4 Panda Corydoras for my sister yesterday, 3 of them are around an inch long, very nice fish.
