  1. Thank you everyone for your comments. I'll water change today and consider adding some hungry fish to the tank.
  2. Hi - I have a 2 gallon planted tank, under-gravel filter with no fish. I had a few lamb-chop tetras that I removed to another tank about 3-4 weeks ago. Today, I added some tap water and saw these little worm-like things swimming in the water. There are really a lot of them but you can't really tell by the picture. Can anyone tell me what it is? I have the same plants in my 10 gallon with about 13 fish and I don't see these worms in that tank. I appreciate any help with this identification!
  3. Thank you, this morning it doesn't seem to be as fat so it's probably bloated. I'll watch out for any changes.
  4. So, did this little fishey eat all the flake food today and no one else got any or is something else going on? I would appreciate some help with this diagnosis. Their abdomen seems to be swollen and I'm not familiar with Rasbora's breeding habbits. I did read they lay eggs but I'm not sure there are eggs in their abdomen. Please and thank you! The picture is the best I can get.
  5. I started my first fish tank when my son was in kindergarten because his teacher had one. Intrigued, I went to the pet store and purchased a 10 gallon with everything I needed, or thought I needed. Well over time, fish came and went some lasting longer than others. I cleaned the glass, changed the water and even bought a live plant. Well, since that plant (from the pet store) came with snails I figured I was done. I had replaced the live with the plastic once again and had one living fish left and that was after a few years of just watching the one fish swim around, alone, lonely. Then I was inspired once again (don't know how that happened) and I thoroughly cleaned the tank, bought a few Rosy Barbs to keep my one fish company and even bought several live plants (from Aquarium Co-Op) because in searching for live plants the internet directed me to Cory and Murphy. After falling in love with Murphy I purchased several more live plants, lost the barbs (and the one fish) and bought Lamb chops and Black Skirt tetras. They all seem to be much better. I even started a small tank my son bought while in college (2.5 gal) and put live plants in there (Water Sprite) with more Lamb chops. It's a really fun hobby for me now. I test the water, change the water and love to watch my fish enjoying their space. For my birthday my husband bought me a 20 long that I haven't set up yet because were re-doing the living room and there's no place to put it right now. But when the time is right, you can bet I'll be looking at this forum for inspiration. The photos are the 2.5 gallon with the water sprite that I bought in early July 2020, it's September now and they have just gone crazy in there! (First pic is before thinning and second is after) I took some out so I can see my Lamb Chops and put them in my 10 gal.
  6. I have pictures on my computer and phone. What app is appropriate to use?
  7. Hi - I can't seem to upload a profile picture. It's too large and I don't know how to reduce it. It doesn't change when I click or double-click on it. I'm in the infancy stage with a forum.
