    Hi there! This morning I was feeding my fish and noticed that one was seperate from the school. This ember tetra is seperate from the others, opening and closing it's mouth very rapidly, seems paler than the others, is mainly staying in place instead of swimming around the tank like the others...

    My betta has had these two white spots (strangely, almost symmetrical) on his head for at least 5 days, likely more. The one on his left side seems to be embedded, while the one on his right side is sticking into the water a bit. He is eating fine but is sticking to the top of the tank a lot...

    Hello Everyone We're new to fish parenting and need some help. We bought a little Betta from a fish shop last week. When we got him home we noticed some white discolouration around his mouth. We're wondering if this is a sign of a disease such as ich or similar. Or maybe the white colouring is...

    Hi, Bottom line up front: 3 year old 40 gallon breeder started with 15 males/15 females cherry shrimp. I purchased from SoShrimp and the product was good. This tank's numbers grew in sync with available life cycle information. Hundreds of shrimp in a few months time. They are on the...

    Hello! I noticed a white spot near my Cory's tail last night and am trying to identify the problem. I believe it looks larger than ich. It is slightly raised and does not appear to be fuzzy. The fish is acting completely normal and has no other spots. I see no signs of disease on any of her...

    Hey everyone, I started my aquarium about four months ago, and everything has been going great until a few weeks ago. I have (had) two German blue rams, 15 Cardinal tetra's and 5 Otocinclus. It all started with one of my tetra's getting white spot. I treated with Esha exit, but to no avail...

    About a week ago I added 3 Otoclinus catfish to my shrimp tank. They been very busy and doing a great job. Middle of the week, I noticed one that had a fussy white patch by this tale (circular). Today, it looks like a second one has a small one starting on his head. Any ideas? 10.8 gal tank...

    Hey guys/girls, So my male scarlet badis has had this growth on his lip, but its recently become quite large and stayed this way for the last 1.5 months or so (see attached pics). The closest thing I could find in the fish diagnosis guide is columnaris or mouth fungus, but it doesn't look quite...

    Hey everyone! I joined this group in hopes to find some answers to my questions. I have been in the fishing hobby for about 7 years. I have had mostly had gravel aquariums with fake plants and goldfish, so it was not very hard to maintain. Awhile ago my son fell in love with a female crowntail...

    So my sister has goldfish at her work. And over the last few weeks that've been developing 'red sores' that have gone from bad to worse. I first asked her to clean the tank - such as doing 30% water changes every so often for a couple weeks, clean the filter and ensuring proper water...

    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...

    Title says it all. I'm hoping someone can ID what is going on with my plant. I purchased an Anubias about 3 months ago and have it in a 5 gallon solo aquarium. I do not dose Flourish and I do not use Co2, and use the standard LED lights that came with the tank. I'm noticing on all but the...

    Curious if anyone has any long-term experience with the disease. I've had my betta (Manny) for over a year – bought/rescued him from Petco – and I soon realized, though new to aquariums, that something was wrong with him when I brought him home. For context, he's always seemed healthy, no...

    A while back I posted on an unknown issue affecting my java fern: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/23-algae/1038897-just-when-you-think-youve-seen-all.html Though I was unable to identify what it is or even whether or not it is in fact a disease (someone familiar with marine algae supposed...

    I'm hoping someone can help me diagnose an illness with my tropical catfish. He's a 13” Pleco (I'm not sure the species), 15 yrs old, who seems to have some sort of infection (see pictures). Details: My pleco has some white sploches on his stomach, at the base of his fins, and around his...

    In a certain thread about overfeeding, I mentioned that I was guilty of overfeeding my Angelfish. So I decided to fast them for two days and it was there I realised one of my Angels contracted the dreaded dropsy. All the symptoms were there - very bloated belly, popeye, difficulty breathing...

    I took a gamble, ordered some fish online, and put them right into my main tank (20H, should've QT'ed). They were apparently healthy last Thursday when they arrived, but over the weekend I started losing fish. The victims have white around their mouths, get sluggish, and stop eating. They die...
