    Hi there! This morning I was feeding my fish and noticed that one was seperate from the school. This ember tetra is seperate from the others, opening and closing it's mouth very rapidly, seems paler than the others, is mainly staying in place instead of swimming around the tank like the others...

    I want to get a pair of rams for my 29g tank. Now, I have 12 black neon tetras in that tank. Do you think I can add the pair into the tank? Or do I need to move some of the tetras to another tank?

    Hello PTers, I have long been part of this forum, but I don't believe I've ever actually posted in here. So forgive me if I am posting in the incorrect area. With all of your suggestions, and long time reviewing, and a bit of trial and error (ok lots of errors), I have successfully been able...

    I need some help identifying a disorder. I have a small school of glowlight tetras that I have had for about 4 years now. Everything was great, until about a month ago. I noticed the lowest ranking member was hiding a lot, swimming erratically and losing weight. I thought it was due to...

    So my apartment is getting treated for bedbugs next week. I've been living here for almost 3 years with no problems, and now it feels like my life is over. But anyways, the landlord has exterminators coming in to do a spray treatment. My question is, how do I prepare my aquarium for this? To go...

    Hi all, I have a 65g moderately planted tank that's been running for about 2 months or so. Currently, I have 6 Cory Cats, 9 Neon Tetras, 1 Betta, and 9 Red-Eye tetras. All of the fish are pretty happy with each other, except the Red-Eyes keep nipping at each other. At first, I only had 6 of...

    Hi, I just wanted to tell you guys a weird story that happened many years ago. We had a few serpae tetras, one of which kept getting fatter. Instead of laying eggs, one day the tetra was dead, the belly ripped open, and 1 baby fish was swimming around. Perhaps a cm long. No eggs, no other...

    I have 10 Ember tetras in a 12 gallon tank (with some ramshorn snails..) would it be possible to keep neocaridina without problems? I would want the colony to grow. :nerd:

    Hi everyone! I'm hoping to set up an aquarium in the fall - it'll be my first time doing so. I'm so excited! But I need some advice. I've come up with a list of things I'll need, and I want to make sure it's going to work out - I'll include it in the bottom of the post - but I had a few...

    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...

    Hi All, Need some advice on the best way to get rid of detritus worm infestation. Two weeks ago my last couple of zebra danios died abruptly in my 10g tank, which was heavily planted with java moss and other assorted aquatic plants, and has been established and running for nearly 2 years. Did...

    Hello, I recently got some cardinal tetra. The first couple of days everything was fine, but now they're breathing from the surface. I lowered the temperature and put on some extra oxygen. The nitrite is low and it's about 24celcius in the tank. Any idea what the problem might be? They don't do...

    Looking to get some thoughts on my current stocking and see what else is out there! Let me know what you think! I'm pretty happy atm, but always good to hear thoughts/suggestions. I've got two 406's on a 75 gallon tank, pressurized CO2 and med/low LED lighting. Picture link in signature (75...

    I got these 8 Red Phantoms for my 37 gallon 1 1/2 months ago. Only other fish are German Blue Rams but they never seem to care about the Phantoms. They happily swim around the tank... until you get close enough to see them, then they just hide behind the plants. Its frustrating because they are...

    I set up a new planted Fluval Spec V aquarium recently and went through a couple weeks of cycling (which I am sure still wasn't enough). I added 5 neon tetra this past Saturday and they are staying a group of 4 at the bottom not swimming around, with one off to itself, and they are moving their...

    As title says, For the first time sense I have had my tank set up the tetra's seem to be attracted to the overflow. I have a home made Durso set up so they seem quite content. .. I am wondering if there is a way to keep those ""and other"" smaller fish from getting in, without disrupting and...
