So I have a 46 gallon bowfront tank that was having a problem with BBA, and noticed after my last water change that the side seam was starting to separate. I freaked out and drained it halfway to...

Go to a dermatologist! They see this everyday, and there are a lot of medications out there to take care of acne. I imagine they'll start you off on an oral antibiotic to get it under control, then...

They are REALLY good at hiding, so they may be in there somewhere. Another possibility is that they have climbed out of the tank. Back when I had ghost shrimp with my betta, they all eventually leapt...

Mine are definitely mid dwellers, however I've lost a few to jumping out of the tank so if your tank isn't covered I'd be wary. Also like was mentioned before, I don't think a 30 gallon is big enough...

Mine does the same thing. I thought he was dead the first time, with his tail plastered flat against the prefilter. But he swam to the surface for some food when he saw me staring at him. I guess...

I had camallanus worms that came in with an infected celebes rainbow and spread to the rest of my fish. They really suck. Prazipro won't work, but I was able to get rid of them using fenbendazole....

Perhaps a temperature change causing the container to contract/water to expand? Maybe watch and see if the water level rises and falls depending on the time of day/room temperature.

I've never had a rimless tank, and I can't say how common it is, but I have read and seen on here where some people with rimless tanks keep the water an inch or two below the edge. When guests are...

Oh wow...poor thing. Good luck getting him healed up. I had a hard time figuring out what I was looking at, but once I turned my laptop over it all made sense lol.

It is kind of fun, I think, to...

I've been reading up on live foods lately and have wondered about scuds too. The main thing that has made me think they weren't a good idea is that I've read they will eat plants. You can find...

It may be so opaque because of the number of ph drops you used. Three seems to be enough in my drop checker. You only need to add enough to give it enough color to make it easy to see. The more drops...

If I remember correctly, I did ~50% water change before starting the second round. The nitrates were pretty high at that point, as this was a decent sized goldfish in a 10 gallon QT tank. I suppose...

In my experience corys are pretty hardy. However you do need to keep an eye on your water quality because poor conditions will cause their barbels to fall off. They seem to prefer fine sand, but many...

Lol...if I had one at home EVERYTHING would make it's way under it. You're taking the pics by holding your phone to the eyepiece? I'm surprised how well they turned out if that is the case!

Metricide 14 is 2.6% gluteraldehyde, and excel is 1.5%. The easy dilution would be to just mix about 50% water and 50% metricide 14. That'd get you to about the proper amount. This is the way I do...

With riccia you don't have to do much beyond providing lights and water. It's a real weed IMO, and seems nearly impossible to get rid of once it's in a tank. Luckily it's pretty small and easy...

I agree. If you had a higher hardness the color would be more intense, simply because you had a higher proportion of test liquid to water.
