    I bought a dozen CPDs from a LFS and started quarentining them after drip accimating. This morning (three days later), I noticed three fish with bouyancy issues -- two floated and the other sank, seemingly outside of their control -- which died a few hours later. I now have a fourth fish that...

    Yesterday I noticed my blind female betta was laying at the bottom of the tank a lot, not moving, and when I prompted her to move, she swam funny in small bursts so I assumed she had swim bladder disease and didn't feed her. I told myself if she still had it the next day I would feed her some...

    I've been trying to keep shrimp but they always keep dying. The shrimp simply stops moving, and then is dead. Happens very gradually over the course of a day. I know the shrimp is dead because it literally just falls on its side or up side down. After some time, if they are well hidden and I...

    Hello All, About 3 weeks ago I moved into a new home. I had to completely breakdown my 50 gallon to make it light enough to move. I caught all the fish and put them into buckets with airstones. Removed the plants and most of the substrate and drained the tank. The new house was only 15...

    Hello! Experiencing some issue with my monte carlo, Micranthemum Tweediei. Don't know whats going on, but I can tell you all the rest of my plants are taking off at a high rate, specifically my Dwarf Hairgrass(Parvula). The DHG is shooting all over the place and looks fantastic. My monte carlo...

    Hi guys, I have been in the aquarium hobby for 8+ years and in the planted tank hobby for about 1.5 years. I have tried so many different things and I feel like I am still coming up short. I find that no matter what I do: 1. I can't keep groundcover/carpeting plants alive for more than a month...

    Hi All, I am fairly new to aquariums and I have a 20 Gallon Long planted community tank. Thank you everyone for your help! I first got about 25 PFR's last Friday, 9/8/2017 and allowed about 3 hours for them to get acclimated to my water by slowing adding my water. Once they were in the tank...

    Hello everyone, this is my first post to the planted tank and it stinks that the first post isn't a happy one! Tank is a 10 gallon from walmart. Backstory: I've had this tank set up for about 6 months now with previous tenants that move around to other tanks in our house. Most recently there...

    Hi, I've been having some difficulty keeping anubias alive in my planted 20g. I buy them as these large, beautiful 12" plants and the leaves seem to melt off within 2 weeks of being in the tank. The base where the leaf was connected to the rhizome is squishy and foul smelling; the leaf itself is...

    I have a 20 gallon long freshwater planted aquarium. I've had it for about 7 months and plants have constantly died in it and the last plant renaming is some Green Temple. I have eco-complete substrate, pH is a bit high at 7.6 and I'm working on lowering that but it doesn't seem to ever go down...

    So I have a 13 gallon tank with some marimo balls and a moss tree (made with sand blasted manzanita and xmass moss) and eco complete substrate. The filter is a hob with a sponge. My shrimp were doing ok but recently I have been having one die over night for the past 3 days. Water Perimeters...

    Hey guys! I bought 2 RCS from my LPS a couple months ago and since then, they've been happy and active (even reproducing twice), until now. Over the span of the last two weeks I have found 3 dead shrimp laying on the substrate with what looks like no legs, just the body. The first two I...

    My tank has been running for about a month now, and I planted it pretty well within the first week. At first, everything was doing great. My plants were growing very nicely and looked nice and healthy. Over the last couple days I've noticed lots of brown leaves that looked like they might have...

    The past two nights I have been having my tiger shrimp die. It's been one each night and I'm not sure why. My levels haven't changed or anything. We got them about a month ago, we were thinking maybe they were sick? But would it really take this long for them to start dying?

    I've had small clusters of DHG planted in my 10g tank for at least of month and I've only noticed negative progress. Many of the leaves turned pale and disintegrated. However, there are still small clusters remaining in the substrate, but there has been little to no progress in terms of growth...
