    Hey guys! I have a juvenile EBJD that seems to be dying :( Initially I thought it was parasites but I'm not sure anymore, could it be bacterial? He isn't responding to meds. At first he would swim erratically and crash into decor and the tank glass violently. Then he started hiding a lot and...

    I seemed to have bought some infected Neon Tetras as my NTs have been acting strange and randomly dying despite near perfect water parameters. Last night one of my Rosy Tetras randomly died too. Other than sitting back and letting the strong survive is there anything else I can do? How do I...

  10. California
    So my DG (Dwarf Gourami) got a white patch on the sides of his body. In response, I added a couple table spoons of salt (aquarium salt) and raised the water temp to 78. The sides of the fish appear to be healing. The white stuff is disappearing, and surprisingly, I've got a huge giant nest in my...

    Today I bought 6 Serpae Tetra(sold as Red Minor Tetra) from Petsmart for a $1 a fish. Got them home, acclimated them by putting the bag in the tank for about 10-15 min, then dumped in about a pint of tank water, let sit for 10-15, another pint in the bag, then 10-15 and netted them into the...
