  1. While feeding this morning, I noticed my electric blue acaras eyes looked to be a bit bigger than normal. Not sure if I’m just being paranoid but does this look like pop eye? If so what should I do for treatment?
  2. Just did, everything feels smooth from the inside as well.
  3. This was an upgrade from a 55 gallon. I did everything in one go. I used an automatic pump to drain 80-90% of the tank water into a large tote. Put all my fish into the tote. Swapped all decor and plants into the new 75 gallon. I also put the same filters from my 55 into the new tank. Used the pump to fill the new aquarium with the old aquarium water and topped off the rest as I would a water change.
  4. The outside is completely smooth, I’ll make a mark with a pen. Thanks
  5. I have a 75 gallon from aqueon that I got about 2 years ago. I moved my light towards the front of the tank and noticed what looks to be a crack or scratch but can’t tell. Before I have 75 gallons of aquarium water ruin my home, should I be concerned?
  6. Thank you! Do you think adding a third would do more harm than good?
  7. I’ve had these two Acaras together for over a year and a half now. My Electric blue has a fin that is completely torn up. The Blue Acara has no fin damage, although he is typically the one being chased. I don’t have a second tank to separate them. I do not want to rehome either of them now that I’ve had them this long. I’ve tried adding more hard scape for areas to hide but they are always together. I’m 99% sure they are both males since I’ve never seen eggs but they do show breeding behavior a lot. They are in a 75 gallon with 8 skirt tetras, 4 pictus cats, dwarf gourami and a super red pleco. I don’t think I have the room to add any more or even if that’s a good idea. What can I do to tone back the aggression?
  8. I originally had 4 total. The second I put them in they all were aggressive with each other. I think they just bullied each other to death unfortunately. Once I was down to one I decided to let him live out his best life without buying anymore. He was fine very active, even seemed to school with my skirt tetras a lot. Not to sure what made him pass though, he was healthy before I left. 🤷🏻‍♂️
  9. Just saw this today when I woke up. My guess is it’s remains, any thoughts?
  10. I just got back from a 5 day vacation and can’t find my tiger barb anywhere. It was the last survivor from the school I had a few months back. I had an automatic feeder set at the back of my lid while I was gone. Tank has been well established for over a year. I tested water immediately, Ammonia and nitrites are at 0 ppm, nitrates are at 10 ppm. I checked the whole surrounding area to see if we had a jumper no luck. I have a pre filter sponge so no way he’s in the HOB. tank is a 75 gallon stocked with; 8 skirt tetras 4 pictus catfish 2 Blue acaras 1 super red pleco 1 dwarf gourami
  11. I have a 75 gallon with 2 blue acaras, 6 black skirt tetras, 4 pictus cats, dwarf gourami, 1 BN pleco. I’d love to get another cichlid if possible but wanted to see what my options are before I blindly go into my LFS. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated!
  12. Yup these are the same two. The flashing has me more concerned with an illness rather than breeding. I don’t see any ich no other fish are flashing but my EBA does have some notches in his fins.
  13. I have two blue acaras. My EBC has been flashing and my blue acara recently did it as well. No new fish have been added for months. I’ve only seen my acaras flash, never any of the other tank mates have done it. I don’t want to jump to treating for a parasite if it’s not needed. I don’t see any signs of ICH on anyone. Do these guys look healthy?
