Actually, I think they have a central system that connects all the tanks so if you see one thing in a tank, they all have it. I asked her what they do with sick fish and they apparently have a tank...

Rosy barbs do love plants. They are herbivores. Grin. I do have them in my tank but I put more durable plants. It's a matter of experimenting with them to see what they eat. I do know that they love...

I moved one of my fish to a medical tank to keep his water fresh and used Epson salts. He did cure up but it took about a week to two weeks. I'd check your nitrates in your main tank as if it's high,...

Is it a powder like algae on the glass that easily rubs off? If yes, increase the plants so they eat more nutrients and leave it be. I've read on several websites that if you leave it alone it...

I agree with Frank. Cut the leaf off and increase CO2. You'll want to look into whether you have too much light or you're under fertilizing. I had a dickens of a time getting rid of black beard from...

I had one bulb before and the plants all withered away. That's why I ended up with a bigger bulb system. It's a decently deep tank and one bulb was making my plants just die. Three bulbs seem to be...
