    Hi, I'm new to planted aquariums and haven't had rasboras before. I have had 10 Harlequin Rasboras for just under a month now. They have been doing really well, but I just noticed that one has growth on its mouth and another has a white fin on one side. I'm not sure what this is or is causing...

    Hi everyone, I setup this 10 gallon tank about 2 weeks ago. I tied willow moss to the wood, placed in the tank and planted dwarf hairgrass and AR mini at the same time. I noticed white fuzzy growth on the wood that I had seen before in my other tank and thought it was just fungus that grows on...

    Hello, I recently started a 2.5gal tank with only DHG. I am using ADA Amazonia and a Finnex Stingray with 10hr photoperiods. Everything was going great, but now what appears to be fungus (white fuzzy stuff) keeps cropping up on my DHG. I spot treat it with hydrogen peroxide, which works well...

    Hi, I just set this tank up a few days ago, it has a dirt substrate covered with gravel, several days ago I noticed the white stuff on the gravel. I also see that the water wisteria in the back is not growing well and see that it is taken over with the stuff also. There are no fish in the tank...

    I recently started up my first planted aquarium and one of my plants have what seems like a white fungus or aglae covering it's leaves. Even my Hair Grass has it too. I was trimming my Hair Grass today when I noticed it and I bumped it with my finger. Instantly, all of the gel substance...
  10. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Long story short: found out my Betta has a fungus and quarantined him out of his 6.6 tank that he shares with four snails. My question: do I also have to treat the 6.6 tank and how do I go about doing that? Thanks to anyone that can shed some light for me.
  11. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hello Everyone, I recently added my two african dwarf frogs to my planted tank. The tank is fairly new but I have kept the frogs in a smaller tank with no filtration for many years so I figured I was safe. The new tank is a 10 gallon planted tank with eco complete as the substrate. After...

    Hi everyone, I have a new tank that is cycling at the moment, it was filled last Thursday so it's on day 5. It has large pieces of driftwood and is about 60% planted. We have noticed that over the last 2 days there is some cloudy white-grey slime growing on the wood and it is become quite...

    As the title says my nano tank that has been fully cycled for over a month (no fauan just carefully measured pure ammonia noms for the BB) has had a hick-up and is no-longer fully cycled. About 2 days about I put a piece of manzanita branch in the tank. The branch has been de-barked...

    Hey y'all, We have a tank that contains a single male golden gourami, and it's been established for a few weeks now. Planted, etc. Less than a week ago we put a piece of manzanita wood from a LFS that we'd soaked for a few weeks and removed as much of the tannin as possible. I tied a few java...

    I have 3 neons and 3 male guppies in my 10 gallon bare-bottom quarantine tank. The neons came with the tank when I bought it used 3-4 weeks ago. A few days ago I noticed a faded spot on the body of one of the neons. It has since grown larger, and now there is a second and third spot (one on the...

    I'm not sure what to do with my fish because I'm not exactly sure what they had. I was treating them with Microbe-lift Herbatan and took the carbon out when I originally thought it was ich, but then my fish started to pile up on top of each other on the bottom in the corner of the tank. Their...

    I got some Bloodfin Tetras from Petsmart the other day. 9 of the 10 I got look great, but one of them is unusually thin and his mouth is oddly shaped and red. When I was in the store I looked at the health of the fish I bought pretty closely, but I'm not sure if he had this when I bought him or...
