Headless Bloodfins

I have a 30 gallon setup and I started with 9 bloodfin tetras, nothing else.

The first one to die looked like it had broken its neck. They are a skittish group so I didn't think much of it. It...

Alright, did the water change and added a carbon insert to the filter. Didn't disrupt it too much, just made sure the carbon covered the top of the return on the AquaClear filter. I hope this is...

It is in fact kanamycin, however on the bottle it recommends a treatment every two days until symptoms disappear, up to three doses. Nothing about continuing a treatment.

That's my point though, it's hard to determine what is going on. The fish that died was a new introduction, so it could have been a number of things, but that one fish is the only one I've lost...

I only have two tanks, the 20 and a 5 for a betta. I don't really have anywhere else to put him. I could swap him out with the betta I guess, but then I'd potentially have contaminated two tanks...

So it is definitely mouth fungus? I mean, the guy who looks like he has something going on is acting fine, as are all of them. The one that died was younger and recently added, so that could have...

I've noticed one of the danios has a white bit at the end of his lip. I was worried it was mouth fungus, so I bought some Kanaplex, but I haven't added any yet. I was using Pimafix as an herbal...

Yeah, the danios are all over the place, and I try to do about a 20% change every week or so.

I just lowered the temp last night so I'll observe them this evening and see how they are doing. ...

I guess it is a bit warm for the danios. For the bloodfins I've read 70-80 F works. But I don't see the harm in lowering it down to ~74.

I try to keep it around 78 at the moment. House gets...

When you say adding more isn't going to be bad, you mean once I return the danios?

See, this is the problem. No matter the size of the tank, you can always go bigger, and there's always the guilt of not providing the fish with more space!

Seriously though, I'll be setting up a...

So you think taking those new danios back is the best option? I hate to do it, but I think it may be the best option. I just can't see cramming more fish in there as being a positive thing.

Wow, those are pretty. I imagine I'd never get to the point where I'd ever even know about cool species like these.

I have a 20g high with an aquaclear 50, heater, etc. When I first set it up I had 3 bloodfins, shortly afterwards increased to 5.

I bought a trio of Pearl Danios because I wanted a dither fish to...

I did a series of substantial water changes. The ammonia was sticking at 4ppm, the fish were acting funny, and I'd had enough. I got the ammonia down to .25 ppm. ...

Shrimp & Leaves

I know almond or oak leaves are beneficial for shrimp in a variety of ways, but do you need to remove them after a while or will the shrimp eat them?
