  1. I was worried about HITH... Thank you for your response!!!
  2. Hi guys- Over the past three days or so the white, pimple-like lesions on the face of our Peacock Cichlid have worsened. Just recently, it appears as though the lesions are becoming reddened, possibly because of irritation or infection? They almost look like blisters??? Of course the first thing that pops up with any mention of white spots on fish is Ich, but I don't believe this to be that. Can anyone tell me from the pictures what we're dealing with here? Water Parameters- Temperature- 79°F Nitrite- 0 ppm, Nitrate- 30 ppm, and Ammonia- 0 ppm. Thanks guys! Note- no other fish are exhibiting any similar symptoms.
  3. Good insight! Thank you for the info. 😊
  4. I did not know that! Thank you for the helpful info. 😊
  5. Hi, I'm curious about whether or not a bonded pair of Apistogramma Cacatuoides could be broken up by another dominant male? And if so, would that male and female then proceed to potentially bond and spawn? Thanks!
  6. Thank you very much! That is exactly the type of image I was look for when I was looking for confirmation of eggs. And as it turns out we did get some fry!
  7. Thank you for your response including providing me with a link to your video (we watch your channel and love it)! As it turns out, our pair of Honey Gouramis successfully spawned which was exciting! Unfortunately we couldn't rescue many, and these fry really are extremely small! But when another one of our breeding tanks open up, it is our hope to do some more breeding of this fish!
  8. Thank you! We have successfully spawned livebearers and maternal mouthbrooding African Cichlids but have yet to successfully spawn and raise up egg laying/scatterering/bubble nesting species yet, so this would be very exciting!
  9. First, I want to say, good luck and thank you for your thoughtful response. I'm looking forward to reading about your future experiences. Yeah, that's what has me unsure. I have yet to come across online images that show clear eggs within a bubble nest. I'm mainly going off of behavior and the fact that this nest does appear to be different bubble nests we have seen in the past. I'll definitely keep a close eye out for changes and even fry though. Also we do have a confirmed reverse trio (2M:1F). I know this isn't usually the best it seems to be working so far and we have seen breeding behavior multiple times in the past months since we introduced them to our tank. I'll keep the post updated if anything changes! Thanks again!
  10. Hi, I've seen both of our male Honey Gouramis build many bubble nests but this one looks a little different. He also seems to be protecting this particular nest more aggressively than I have seen in the past. Does this nest have eggs? And if not, what should we look for in the future? Thanks!
  11. Recently I came across an article about Red Pest Disease, and I couldn't help but think that it caused the death of one of our Neon Blue Dwarf Gourami that we once had. From my understanding, VHS affects a number of species both fresh and salt, but I couldn't find a complete list. Furthermore, I couldn't confirm the Dwarf Gourami as one of the affected species. Much of the information out there for the Dwarf Gourami focuses on the Iridovirus. And while there is considerable overlap between the two diseases, there are some distinctions. The Neon Blue Dwarf Gourami in question lived for about six months in a 20-Gallon Long, Planted, Community Tank. This tank was well kept through the use of live plants, sponge filtration, and routine water changes and necessary maintenance. About a month before passing away, we had noticed that this fish had developed a red patch on one side of its body, up near the dorsal fin. He seemed in good health for some time after that too. If the red patch grew darker in color or larger in size overtime, it would have been minimal. Up until a few days before his passing, he continued to act and behave normally. Then almost overnight he seemed to have made a turn for the worse- lethargic, disinterested in food, staying at the top of the tank, frayed fins, erratic swimming, distended stomach bulging from both sides. At this point and to this day no other fish exhibited any similar symptoms and we have had not experienced any other casualties. Based on this information and the images I provided, what does it sound like to you? As I mentioned this happened in the past and I'm just here out of curiosity! Thank you in advance. 😊
  12. Thank you! I will give that a try.
  13. Hi guys, Just about a week or so ago I noticed that one of our female Red Top Hongi had started to develop some sort of white fungus or something that I have not seen before. It wasn't very noticeable at all, and at the time I just made a mental note and decided to keep an eye on it. Fast forward to this morning, and I am almost certain that over the past couple of days her condition has worsened. As you can see in the images, the area in question is primarily on the upper lip, and though I'm not certain, it looks as if it could have some dimension to it, as opposed to being flat up against the fish. But like I said, I can't get a good enough look or picture to confidently say to. The few Google searches I performed in an attempt to identify the problem led me to believe that it is either bacterial or fungal. Unfortunately, both require different treatment, therefore positively identifying the issue is critical. Based on the image attached, can you help me figure out what is wrong? Seasoned, 45-Gallon Tank w/ an overstocked population of Mbuna Cichlids. Heavy filtration, w/ mechanical, and biological that has proven to be able to handle the bioload. Water Parameters- Temperature- 79°F Nitrite- 0 ppm Nitrates- 10-20 ppm Ammonia- 0 ppm Thank you in advance ☺
