    strange egg/ white thing in my aquarium

    What is this thing in my aquarium? It is white with a goey outside, at least that is what it looks like. Kinda like a chicken egg with no shell. I have 1 male betta fish, 5 cherry shrimp, 1 mystery snail, and 1 small common pleco in my 29 gallon aquarium. ( The PetSmart label said "small" pleco...

    What is this on my BN Pleco?

    Hi, So I recently noticed some white cotton-ish growth on my male BN, around his gills - started on only one side and then quickly became evident on the other side too. I immediately took some photos and went to my LFS who suggested its probably a fungus (i suspected this!). I purchased some...

    Favorite Weird Thing

    I'm just wondering what everyone's favorite "weird" thing about fish is. Weird is obviously subjective so share what is weird to you not weird to the forum necessarily. Mine would be that I like to poke my finger in the top of the tank and let my Angels and Gourami nip at it.

    Size Comparison

    So I was looking at fish tanks to buy yesterday in a 400 gallon fish tank popped up. I can't afford it and I don't have room for it but I still decided to look at the listing because I was interested. The very last picture was the guy showing how big it is. I definitely understand how big it is...

    I just wanted to share this picture of my snail. I thought it looked pretty interesting. Snails are weird little guys. And he is alive, saw him moving around not long after I took this. He just wanted a rest lol

    What is my shrimp doing? Is he/she ok?

    So, I've had a red cherry shrimp for a little over a month now. It molted after the first 3 days, and again 3.5 weeks later, after moving to itw new tank. Normally very active, and still somewhat active, but has started a behavior that it wasn't displaying previously. I'm not sure if it is male...

    New to triops

    My triops are about 8 days old and I see little trails like a zen garden kind of thing in the sand. Is this a bad thing or just something they do?

    Possible Parasites In My Tank, Need Some Help!

    So Im back again with yet another problem... *sigh*   So the other day I flipped this piece of driftwood (which looks like a dead tree) upside-down, and I noticed an odd piece of white cobweb-type material covering the base of the tree 'trunk'. The next day when i looked at it, the white was...

    Is It Supposed To Be Like This?

    Hello all!   So I bought a heater today to help nurse a sick Betta to health, and the heater I bought is a Marina Submersible heater, 25w. I noticed at the store that all of those heaters seemed to have some type of padding in the bottom where the actual heating area is. Im guessing its for...

    Weird Firemouth Cichlid Sore?

    Hey all!   So I noticed this morning that my Firemouth Cichlid, who is a beautiful male i named Susan (XD), has what looks like a white blob/sore thing around the anal region. What on earth could this be? I've never noticed it on him before. I'll upload a picture of it, its a little hard to see...

    Okay.. What Is This..?

    Hi all,   I have been performing a fishless cycle on my 25l tank now for 5 days.   Here is the thread covering it, to date, with all water levels and details etc etc.    In a nutshell:   Added a 1/2 dose of tetra safestart then added 3ppm  of ammonia.   The following day the ammonia level was...
