    Hi all, my sparkling gourami lost her pectoral fin to what I suspected was fin rot, as I saw some dark areas on the ends of her tail fins as well. The fin will crumble off and try to regrow, but grows deformed and with extra fleshy stuff and it's been like this for at least 2 months! She eats...

    Hello, I am planning on purchasing some Otocinclus catfish and I'm setting up a quarantine tank for them. My concern is that my usual hospital tank is only 16L (4 gallons). Would this be large enough to house 10 catfish for 4 weeks? Or do I need to set up a bigger tank? TIA (Ps. I have...

    Hello, I just got 3 otos for my 15g, as well as 3 amanos. It currently has 3 ADFs (African Dwarf Frogs). I drip acclimated the amanos and put them in, which I read was fine, but nobody has given me a clear answer on whether these otos need to be in QT tank. Currently they are in a small temp...

    Today I received an online order of 10 assassin snails (to be distributed among our various tanks to help with pest snail problems), and a dozen rummynose tetras. Without thinking I tossed both snails and tetras into our 55 g QT tank. Now my husband and I are scratching our heads and wondering...

    Here's the story; I have been stocking up my 30 gallon with glowlight tetras as of late, 4 at a time and once per week, up to 12 tetras. (The tank already had 3 corydoras, 2 Amano shrimp, and 1 nerite snail, so I didn't want to overstock...) One of the tetras began lately swimming *quite* oddly...

    YouTube Link to my fish. Took the video in slow-mo so you can more clearly see the fins. The specific fins I'm concerned with are the tail and anal fins. The tail fin appears to be a complete fin but is clamped to more of a rectangle rather than a rounded fin. The anal fin almost looks like a...

    I got back into fish keeping a few months ago and have my first tank in 15+ years. I stocked a small school of otocinclus, but sadly, all but one of them died during a sudden ammonia/nitrite spike (after completing cycle; all other fish came through fine). Since the others died, the remaining...
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hey guys I have what look to be glass shrimp in a large pond near me and was wondering how I should go about quarantining them? What is the chance they will have something nasty? I was thinking of putting some in a week old empty tank for a few days for observation, then put some of them in my...

    I am using flubendazole 10% (from Doc) as a general de-wormer for new fish during their initial quarantine. I currently have 6 kerri tetras (Inpaichthys kerri) that have been in my bare-bottom 10 gallon quarantine tank for 5 weeks now. I followed the instructions on Doc's site...

    Hi all! I just brought home a cheap and used 10 gallon set-up with the intention of using it for a quarantine tank for my 40B (currently sitting dry). I mainly wanted a tank and lid, but the deal I found also included a shady looking heater, Whisper 10i filter.... and two male guppies and three...

    Hi all! I have everything I need to get my first display tank started, so now I'm putting together a supplies list for a quarantine tank that I'll be cycling at the same time. So far I am planning on purchasing: - 10 gallon tank (will be kept bare-bottom) - ATI Hydro sponge filter #2 -...

    I am setting up an 84G Planted tank. I have 2KG of bio rings 90% cycled (using ammonia in a bucket with a bubble) as nitrites are finally starting to drop. I seeded the rings with established media. These bio rings will be in a FX5 on the 84G tank. Im breeding CPD's which will be about 80%...

    Triple Q's in the title lol...:thumbsup: Generally when I get plants in I check them over and pick anything off that I see which is easier said than done depending on what you have. I know there are all sorts of dips you can use, traps, and well.. it's a lot to take in as everyone has a...

    I'm a relatively new aquarist. I have few white cloud minnows in one aquarium. I recently set up another 10 gal. aquarium with plants, and then on Sunday I added two new white clouds to it. My plan was to eventually keep all six of the white clouds in it and start some Cherry Red Shrimp in the...

    I bought two Otos two days ago and one of them is very hyper- he doesn't seem to be able to sit still for very long. He was active at the store, so I'm not sure if this is just part of his natural personality or if there's something bothering him. His tail is ragged, but I haven't been able to...
