    So I cleaning my aquarium (freshwater) and dumped the water from my red water change bucket and noticed in the bottom of the bucket massive movements. They appear to be tiny bugs moving about, too small to make out with the naked eye. Then I stuck my head into my sump that I just vacuumed...

    I had 6 guppys and 1 Catfish Dwarf suckers in my 350 liter tank, one of my guppys are dead, another Guppy is swimming on its back, but killed it because it was suffering, 3 of them are very fat, and only staying at one spot, do they have parasites? I did put some new plants in a week ago, could...

    I have an empty tank from a recently deceased betta. She was dealing with inner parasites, and at one point anchor worms. I medicated for both but the inner parasites won. Recently hydra had also taken over the tank. First I got rid of the hydra by heating the tank to 104+ F for 2 hours...

    Snails, parasites, diseases--there are plenty of reasons to try and keep each tank contained from other tanks. I recently discovered hydra in 3 of my 4 nano tanks; the last remaining one is least maintenance due to the shrimp breeding colony that lives there, but you can understand why I...

    My female and male Krib pair wasnt eating and hiding way to much for the first 2 and a half weeks. I saw some white stringy poop so I treated the tank with API General Cure. Next thing I know, lots of white stringy poop and white things look like they were coming out of my female Kribs head...

    so my fish came down with white stringy poop about a day after I stopped a maracyn treatment for cyanobacteria. could stress be causing this or is it definitely internal parasites. unfortunately the fish passed away today so I am getting very concerned now
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello all! I am doubtful that I will get a quick response to this question, but here goes! I have concluded my dosing of No Planaria in both of my shrimp only planted tanks to eliminate Vorticella. It has been one week since I began treatment, and I dosed an extra three days, so six days total...

    So far my re-introduction to the planted tank hobby has had disastrous surprises. Here is what happened: I started my first tank (Tank 1) last month, 2.5 gallons. It's moderately planted, and it has more or less cycled successfully, and housed one rosetail betta fish. Then after 2 weeks) I...

  11. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I need guidance from an invert. master. A few days ago I discovered little white worms in my tank. At first I thought they were only on the glass, but with closer inspection I noticed them on my RCS's. I also have amanos in the tank, but they appeared to have no worms. I believe they are...

    I have a totally established tank thats relatively heavily planted & has some driftwood and rocks as furniture. I am definitely not a novice hobbyist. There are some whitish/greyish worms that I have been dealing with since more than a month now. When I originally saw them I thought within a...
  13. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Like the title suggests, is it possible to de-worm snails and shrimps of internal parasites? Thing is, I have a TON of ramshorn snails, MTS snails, scud gammarus shrimp, dwarf shrimp culls in a tank that I use to collect a whole lot of them when they overpopulate my planted tanks; it's a tank...

    For a while now I've noticed one of my balloon belly mollies being thinner than the others and sometimes swimming oddly, hanging out/swimming at the top of the water, having cloudy eyes and body on and off. Also, the other mollies as well as the one molly often have thin stringy poo. This has...

    My son's guppies have some kind of internal parasite (long stringy poop & 1 dead fish) and I'm treating the tank with API General Cure. My concern is that the meds clearly state to avoid contact with human skin and that it's a known carcinogen, so how do I make the tank safe for us to put hands...

    Hi. I'ts been a while since I've introduced any live plants to my aquarium. Fact is with college/work I had no time to take good care of my goldfish tank and went along with plastic decor for a long time. Now I wanna make the jump again to a planted aquarium. Now to the main point of the...

    My 55gall community aquarium somehow got infected with Camallanus Worms; I can see them sticking out of female angelfish butt. I haven't added any new fish in months and my guess is that the parasites were introduced with live food from Petland Discount. I did a quick research and ordered...

    Tank: Filtered planted 2 gal jar, Soil/sand substrate 6500K light above it. Holds PFR cherry shrimp and a bunch of snails These creepers don't bother anything, just hanging out on everything that doesn't move. They reproduce by budding, and as far as I can tell, are living off of...

    I need help! I lost all my fish in my 20 planted tank to ich while on a trip and my tank watching friend did not notice it in time. I did a water change and still treated the water with Super Ich Cure as directed even though there were no fish in the tank just to be safe. After waiting two...
