I figured as much. He could be fighting, but more than likely its a wound to his pride. Will probably heal on its own.

I have a red devil and a blue johanni in a tank in my living room. The other day my boyfriend asked me if fish usually respond to laser pointers. I thought he was nuts, but shined the laser pointer...

Are these fish new or have there been recent changes. It looks a little like the fin rot that some species get temporarily when they get moved. If its that I would just watch them, no need to treat...

Wait till they breed, the larva are fun little buggers to watch. They require a certain mass to breed. They don't seem to like to have to look too hard for a mate. Tank raised young are also less...

A few nerites and a uv in the filter line will take care of it without the chemicals. Erythromycin should be ok on the CRS short term. A UV off a site like ebay isn't that expensive and will help...

Assassin snails work good, spixi snails will eat most other snails and their eggs. The spixi eggs are huge (so are they making for easy removal). Also you can reach higher concentrations if you...

I will tell you that on the end the petco sand will turn white/clear. Giving the tank a speckled look for all black go all florite or blasting sand or whatever.

How long have you seen it and how many? New conditions tend to trigger molting. If it's been more than a day or two then I might be concerned. How's their behavior? Are they still active, and...

Spirit snails will eat ramshorn but not mts too. Maybe they taste really bad. I know they could be a pain to chase under the substrate.

I'm starting to really hate cichlids. They are hard to figure out. At least this one doesn't spend all his time hiding in a corner of the tank.

As to what type of tank I'm going for, no clue....

lethal spore forming bacteria

Anyone ever deal with one with shrimp? If so, how did you finally get rid of it? If you want more info see my post under parameters. They are a bit tougher to get rid of than a regular bacteria.
