    Warning, dead fish! https://imgur.com/a/LY9TGqL My very active and seemingly healthy Blue Ram died within three days of what began as slight lethargy. It ended with a day and a half of staying hidden at the substrate, with a short, wild and wobbly set of bursts around before falling over. I...

    Hey everyone, I have a 20 gallon planted aquarium that I set up in August and for some reason I can't seem to keep the fish alive. I've tried oto and cory catfish, platies, mollies, and guppies. One of the platies was actually pregnant when we bought it and it gave birth to several fry, 2 of...

    Hello, I upgraded my 40b tank to a 75 gallon tank about 2.5 weeks ago and I'm slowly losing fish to, presumably, some sort of disease. One of the fluval 406's was running on the 40b tank before upgrading so, the 75 gallon tank is cycled. The tank is heavily planted as well (plants came out of...

    Two months ago I bought 3 Metae (Bandit) Cory's. They sat in a QT (55G) with 9 other fish for 5 weeks. Upon putting them in their new home (29G), the were all dead within a week (which was 2 weeks ago). I can't seem to pinpoint why either. Tank Setup: Moderately planted. 2/3 of the tank has...

    Hello all, I want to warn everyone about Hikari sinking wafers. Both the shrimp and algae wafers seem to be killing my kuhli loaches. I have tested this several times. If I feed the wafers, I will find dead Kuhlis the next day. Sometimes several. I didn't realize it at first, so I started...

    I have a 46 gallon bowfront that is well established and heavily planted in dirt with gravel cap. I have/had 10 neon tetras, 4 black neons, 5 otocats, 2 albino Cory's, 2 angels, 5 shrimp and lots of snails. My problem is that I am having a bacterial bloom that seems to be pretty bad and I seem...

    We support and take care of our own: I sell on TPT and I buy on TPT. If I cannot find it here, I check our sponsors first before hitting the web. So, imagine my surprise when I stumbled on Cardinal Tetras right in my own back yard: in the sunny San Diego, for the paltry $1.49 per beautiful...

    So I noticed the dog was eating cat food all the time and I decided to try an experiment. I got out the milk and poured myself a bowl. It tasted like boiled diapers in a burning garbage-can full of racoon hair, but I didn't throw up or die. So like a week later I had to leave town for a few days...

    Summary: Fully cycled tank was introduced plants first, then fish, then cherry shrimp. A few weeks later, plants and shrimp are thriving; but the guppies are dying one at a time every couple of days. I've now replaced all of the original fish, and 3 of the 4 new ones have died as well. 5G...
