    Hi everyone, I have Jungle and Italian Vallisnaria in my natural/Walstad tank. It's been doing fine. In the last 2 weeks, I had to treat my tank with meds for possible columnaris. I have a clown pleco with a white patch on his back. I treated with kanaplex and Furan 2. Yesterday, I realized...

    Hey everyone! I have a juvenile EBJD that seems to be really sick :( Initially I thought he had internal parasites but now I'm not sure. Could it be bacterial? It started with him swimming erratically and crashing into things violently. Then he would come out at feeding time but wouldn't eat...

    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...
  5. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I just medicated my tank for a short while and have found a sort of residue on the water surface - nothing alarming but it is noticeable. I have a spare eheim carbon pad which I could use temporarily however there is a lot of contrasting opinions on whether it will remove plant nutrients and...

    This might be a stupid question, but it's such a controversial topic I just want to make sure: is it safe for me to treat my betta's minor fin rot with Bettafix? I used to have two Endler-Guppies in the tank with my Betta and the larger Endler always had a knack for nipping and bullying his...

    My German Blue Ram has had a cloudy eye and protruding white mass for some time now (see pictures). Two weeks ago I posted asking for help on the issue and decided to treat with herbal tonics (pimafix and melafix by API). After the recommended dosing I saw no change so I purchased some...

    Curios what all people keep to treat their fish? What do you use for all newly acquired fish in quarantines as a general "get rid of any nasties"? What's your main "medicine cabinet" for fish issues contain? Have you found the products you use noticeably helpful or just not seen anything go...

    Hi everyone, I have a sick juvenile salmon red rainbowfish in a 600L planted tank with lots of driftwood and good hiding spots! I just tried for ages with a large and small net but no luck, she hides at the back of the driftwood. Can't catch her when feeding, she's too fast. Any ideas? She...

    Well I made a huge mistake and have had multiple fish deaths since adding new fish 7 days ago. :( I don't have a QT and have only the 55 gallon tank. I have lost several of my established fish that were in this tank for 14 months. I have heard the warnings and kept telling myself I would set...

    Hello; I want to make a thread where members can speak of chemicals that they have found to do better than what they have expected of them. I know a majority of members negatively view chemicals but in some cases they are a last resort. So this is in hope of making cluster of information on a...
