    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...

    I have 5 little panda cories in a 20 gallon planted tank along with a group of celestial pearl danios. Yesterday when I fed them I noticed one pretty much turning into a torpedo. It was swimming along the front of the tank corkscrewing. I set up a QT for it, about 3 inches of water deep, put a...

    Hi All, Just bought 4 new baby angel fish for my 65Gal. Once I put them in I noticed that my rainbow fish are showing symptoms of Cotton wool disease and my Siamese algae eater is looking a bit lethargic. Just looking for some advice on whether I should treat the whole tank or pull them out...

    Hello, So, here is the story. I have a planted peacock Cichlid tank. About a 10 days ago or so I noticed that one of my most active peacocks was being lethargic and was often hiding under rocks/driftwood. A few days later I noticed that a few other guys had a minor case of "sunken stomach". I...

    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...

    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...

    Hello, I just recently had a molly with fungus and a minnow with open sores/missing scales and treated the tank with Fungus Guard. The molly lost the fungus and the minnow died a couple days later. I did 2 treatments worth = 3 tablets for 30 gallon for 4 days, 25% water change then retreated...

    I think my fish have flukes. They are not moving and breathing heavy. They also have a tiny white spot on their heads and scratch on their head and eyes. I also noticed white specks on the glass. I'm thinking it is fluke eggs but not sure. What do you guys think? Is there any natural meds for...

    On Monday I added 3 otos to my 20g long semi heavily planted with new plants that only had a betta (recently moved out 3 other otos to a different tank when new plants arrived for 20.. original otos are fine). I stupidly decided to not quarantine the new otos, and to put the HOB that was on my...

    Hi guys The Kissing Gourami in my 55g planted tank isn't doing too well. He hasn't been eating much for two days (if anything) and he's just hugging the bottom of my tank. It also looks like his mouth and head might be infected with something and his lips look swollen. No other fish are...

    Two weeks ago one of my male kerri tetras suffered too high of a dose of flubendazole (whoops) in quarantine and didn't take it very well (symptoms were lethargy and fin rot/nipping from his tank mates). I did frequent water changes, didn't observe signs of nematodes, and eventually moved him to...

    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...

    today i saw my little cardinal tetra acting weird in the tank. I took a closer look and found that half of its body had lost color and his two front fins were the only thing propelling him. I suspect he is paralyzed, but what could have caused it and what can I do????????? Any help appreciated.

    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...

    I have owned guppies for a few years now, and last night, my fish came down with an odd disease. Thier pectoral fins, normally spread gracefully, are now drawn together into little rectangles, and have taken on a thick, cloudy color. Their tails aren't out to thier full spread either. They swim...

    My grandmother has a 55gal upstairs and one of her rummy-nose(spelling?) tetra's has a bizare growth on it's nose. She keeps insisting that her red-tailed shark bit it and now the growth is it's infected. I however don't think that is the case but either way she has no clue how to treat it. . ...

    I introduced 6 Neon Tetras 2 days ago. However, they are not acting right. They are starting to look disoriented when they swim. :o They swim with no direction and sometimes in a corkscrew type pattern. After, they look exhausted and settle on the bottom of the tank not moving :(. I am a newbie...

    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...
