    Whirly Disease or Swim Bladder

    I have a Oscar fish who has gotten pretty bloated as of the last month. He behaves normally, eats normally, etc. Today he was very sluggish, but ate normally yesterday. Fasting did not result in bloating going away, tried this for 4 days without food, then a week at 30% feedings, and then 70%...

    Honey gourami turning white?!

    Morning everyone, I turned on my tank today to see a (maybe?) very sick dwarf honey gourami. I noticed his colour was fading about a week ago but I assumed it was to stress from a large water change (half the tank) due to one of the fish eating and killing a tetra (ammonia had spiked slightly...

    How long has this fish been trapped in my plants??

    My threadfin rainbowfish are extremely skiddish, and apparently when they get scared they nose dive so deep into my valisneria that they get stuck and can't get out. I lost (they literally disappeared) one fish a week or two ago, one fish two and a half days ago, and one fish just today a...

    Fish Sick. Possibly graphite??

    Early this morning I noticed that my betta fish had a grey streak going across the side of his body that was not there before.

    Glofish swollen belly?

    Hi friends - I have a freshwater tank that’s been pretty stable for a while. We have four glofish and four tetras. A few weeks ago the blue glofish got a swollen belly (see pics). She was still peppy and energetic so I though maybe she had eggs? But it’s been this way for a few weeks at least...

    Molly in danger

    Alright, so I wake up in the morning one day and find one of my mollies(potentially interbred with swordtails/platies) has a gill problem. So, I look at it and say it’s due to fighting. Later on I see some problems with the small fish; she has gotten visibly bloodier and her gill plate (or what...
