  1. Plants
    Greetings all, I have a relatively new West African Killifish/ADF tank with (what used to be) a large assortment of small Anubias variants. Over the past month or so, one by one they have been succumbing suddenly to rhizome rot. Each one maintains perfectly green leaves but the rhizomes are...

    Hello, So i have scoured far and wide to no avail! I am trying to figure out what this area is on my moss. I'm not sure what type of moss it is as i don't remember. This area started a couple weeks ago and has slowly expanded to about the size of a half dollar coin. I have tried to suction...
  3. Fish
    Hey so I have a Geo tapajos that has open sores on its head with white fuzz coming out. The root cause I'm sure is that I was a lazy/foolish aquarist and was overfeeding without increasing the frequency of my wc's and of course that's when fish get sick. I quarantined him in a ten gallon I had...

    Just picked up a submerged Nymphaea lotus bulb from the LFS, but I'm nervous about putting it in my tank since it has some brown "fuzz" on parts of the bulb.

  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I was wondering if this white fuzz probably fungus thing would be okay for shrimp/snails. It's only covering this one rock decoration and doesn't seem to be present anywhere else. The rock is in an empty fish tank that I bought used and I have been running for a little while. I've added a tiny...
