    Correct dosage of Melafix for my 3 gallon tank. Safe for plants? Should I do my Bettas treatment in a seperate tub?

And what the correct dosage to use jungle fungus clear in a 3 gallon of it is better to use that. Help asap! I...

    Electric Blue Jack Dempsey Sick?

    I just got home from work today I have a 29 gallon with one firemouth, two blood parrots, and a EBJD and I noticed he was hiding a lot yesterday and today I see him at the bottom of the tank laying on the sand and I saw him doing a roll on the sand almost equivalent to how a gator does that...

    Melafix Hoax?

    Hello everyone! (wow, I'm back? :oops:) After (almost) finishing the first semester of year 2 in my aquaculture studies at Dalhousie, I've found I've learned more about finfish and shellfish than I've bargained for, and a notable subject has crossed my path while caring for my own fish that I...

    Betta - Fin Rot?

    Hi everyone, My roommates and I got a betta fish about 2 weeks ago and we're worried he might have fin rot but we're not sure if it's that, him tearing his fins, or just normal. He's had the white tips on his fins since we got him and he has a bigger split in his top fin that's improving now...

    New 125 gallon tank, lost 5 fish in 3 weeks

    So I recently bought a used 125 gallon tank. Cleaned it up real nice with zero chemicals. Transferred majority of water from my 55 gallon tank (cycled) and still using the same cycled filter on my 55 so I know I have plenty of beneficial bacteria. I did add a lot more decorations, but dunked...

    Betta Exposed To Melafix

    Hi Everyone!   I have two tanks: a divided 5.5gal with two male bettas and a 20gal community tank with a female betta. About a month ago I treated both tanks with Melafix. I noticed my bettas becoming more lethargic, so I researched "bettas and Melafix" and sure enough I found information saying...

    Betta Emergency

    I have a betta fish named Jeremy.  He accidentally snagged his back fin on a broken glass stone.  I didn't realized the stone was broken before and I removed it from the tank.  His back fin was ripped so I got some Melafix at the pet store.  I gave it to him for about a week and his fin is doing...

    Corydoras Nearly Dead?!

    So I bought 4 new Corys (pretty sure the shop advertised them as Corydoras sp. columbia). And the past few days one in particular has been looking off - paler than normal, and noticeably smaller in size than the others. Yesterday when I looked in the tank it looked dead - was upside down on the...
