About Me

  1. My Betta is looking rough. Everyone else is fine. I moved her to a bucket. I have salt and the med trio. I could really use some help, as I haven’t used medication before, besides trying salt once.
  2. Hi All: I have problems with my tank, cant figure it out. LFS doesn't know, planted tank forum no help.. Maybe you can help. Might be a bit long to describe.... Tank is 14 months old. Cycled fast. Dirted, planted tank. 32 gal but a bit shallower so say 27 gal. Generally looks beautiful. Fluval plant 3.0 light. fluval 207, heavily planted, aerator, generally stays 77F, slight bit of fluctuation. Have had a bunch of different fish, mostly Scarlet badis, and returned some fish due to incompatibility issues (I returned halfbeaks, bumblebee gobies, peacock gudgeons). Now have a few silver kuli loaches (3), one Annandale loach, 4 ember tetra (just lost one to the weird sudden bloat), about 8-9 exclamation point rasboras, and now down to only 4 scarlet badis. Had up to 13-14 badis, breeding successfully many times over, now Ive lost almost all, all my females gone, my big male has a poor pale color rather than the super bright red they normally had. A few months ago bought 11 (wild caught didn't know at the time) green rasboras (Sundadanio). They were amazingly healthy, got fat, then precipitously died in a matter of weeks. Possibly for them it was the hard water.. They had a bit of ich but that cleared up fast. The badis are my biggest concern. Bumblebee gobies were tail nipping so I got them out. Still, randomly they decline. Some get bloated, many others start by getting raised whitish patches, but not as bright as ich, typically they lose much color, then die. Usually still aggressively feed up till they get bad. My last big female badis was too bloated for several weeks or more.. tried to get her to eat frozen daphnia but she wasn't too into it, then she vanished and a shrimp was eating her the next day. One occasional symptom is the fish will flick as if rubbing their sides.. not common but has happened. My last female badis was doing this a bit at the end .. I feed live black worms that I keep in a separate tank, in RO water and feed them boiled organic broccoli, squash, which they devour. Some sediment in that worm tank gets in during feeding.. I also feed live or fresh dead baby brine almost daily, frozen adult brine and frozen daphnia. Hikari micro pellets for those that take it (tetras and rasboras and loaches only). LFS people say my fish are "spoiled"... Suddenly in the last month or two Ive lost a ton of badis. Always had a slow trickle but many breeding so they were replaced... Ill attach a current badis with a spot on face, and water test result. Water always has zero N so dont ask, no I dont have Chlorine or ammonia or Nitrate or anything. I also have Neocardinia shrimp doing well and Amano shrimp, many snails.. all good. My thoughts: -I put a rock or rocks in there that is leaching something I cant test for.. Tested most with vinegar first, so not sure that it. -I have a piece of wood that is leaching something.. Mostly manzanita but some is mystery driftwood (mostly small pcs) that I previously boiled for hours. I do have a fair bit of tannin build up either from soil or wood. -Ive introduced a disease, bacteria, or parasite by feeding live mosquito larvae or live daphnia I get from local ponds.. Dont really do this often at all but used to a bit more often (still rare, haven't in a while so its odd the die off has increased). -My organic potting soil is too deep and is gassing something; I do *still* get bubbles if I prod the soil with tweezers. LFS recommended I put carbon in the fluval, so I did, chemi-pure elite. That seems to take some of the tannin out but its only been a couple weeks in there. current little male with a spot. Last female shortly before dying, Aug 23. Bloated. Death of a male shortly before that... got bloated fast. General tank look typical water test Thank you for any wisdom and for reading
  3. I made a rookie mistake and introduced Ich to one of my display tanks via some plants that I got from Petco. I have removed all of the fish, and they are being treated separately in a hospital tank. I cranked the temperature in the display tank up to 92, hoping to kill the Ich without killing my BB. Does anyone know if this is an effective method, and how long I will need to keep the temperature raised to ensure the Ich is gone?
  4. Hey! I really need some help please! My Betta fish developed a cotton-like spot next to his eye over 2 weeks ago but it faded in about 3 or 4 days using only methylene blue. A couple of days later he developed a white spot on top of his head probably due to an injure, and he stopped swimming… Now he remains still on the surface to catch some air and he hasn't eaten in about 2 weeks. I thought he might me suffering from Columnaris or Saprolegnia so I treated him with SulfaPlex and KanaPlex separately but none of them seem to work... So, I added some activated charcoal to my filter to remove the remaining SulfaPlex from the hospital tank. However, the white spot on my Betta's head has grown a little and the cotton-like spot next to his eye has reappeared (picture attached)... I'm almost certain it's fungus, but I don't know how to treat it since the SulfaPlex treatment did really nothing. I've had my fish for about 8 months. I actually rescued him from a previous owner who didn't really care for him. His usual tank is 5 gallons, it's fully cycled and the parameters are fine but right now he's in a 2 gallon hospital tank. I usually do 25 - 40% water changes every week. I had recently added a new plant but my snail ended up eating all its leaves, leaving some sharp branches, which might be where my Betta injured himself. But what I'm most worried about is the fact that he hasn't eaten in a while and that he stays at the top of the tank. I watched the video on the Aquarium Co-Op channel on how to treat fungus with aquarium salt, but do you guys think it’s gonna be ok for my fish? I mean, due to the fact that he might be really weak at this point for not eating in weeks.
  5. I brought 6 Julii Corydoras home from my LFS yesterday, put them into quarantine, and fed them live bloodworms hoping to fatten them up before medicating. One had what I thought was an injured Pectoral fin and possible injury to his swim bladder. I put him into a separate nursery tank I was preparing that had already been medicated with Methylene Blue, hoping to prevent infection. This morning he had passed away, and I noticed that a few of the other Corys now had large portions of their fins missing and fraying. Other than the damaged fins, I have not seen any signs of the remaining 5 acting unusual. They are resting together in their shoal and traveling up to the top of the tank for air. I am guessing this is fin rot, but I have never dealt with this before with my livebearers. The picture I added is the one who seems to be in the worst shape. His entire tailfin has completely frayed away. I have added aquarium salt to their tank at half the usual dose; although, I know there is conflicting information about how sensitive to it corys really are. On hand, I have the Quarantine Trio, Methylene Blue, API Aquarium Salt and Malachite Green. In the past, I have known people to use Maracyn 2 for Fin rot, but I can't find it anywhere at a reasonable price or that could be shipped to me in time. Will regular Maracyn work? Should I go get Malefix from Petco? Water Parameters: pH: 7.2 Nitrates: ~15 ppm Hardness: ~200 ppm Nitrite: 0 ppm Ammonia: 0 ppm KH/Buffer: ~40 ppm Water Temperature: 79.1F
  6. Hello! Need help identify what’s going on with the left fin of my pearl gourami. When he is looking at you it’s the fish’s left fin. You can kinda see that there looks to be some kind of swelling? It’s kinda pink where the body connects to the fin. The other side doesn’t have it. He is swimming fine at the moment but I want to identify and treat as soon as possible if it’s an issue. Thank you everyone for the help!
  7. Hello everyone, Can someone please confirm if my betta has columnaris? I have only just stopped treating him for fin rot, but just today I notice there is white stuff coming out of his mouth. It also looks like he is discoloured underneath (can be faintly seen in the second image). He has also just gone off his food and is lethargic. I have treated the tank with aquarium salts and primafix (this stuff). The last fortnight I did 100% water changes and dosing with primafix and salts to treat the fin rot- which finally seemed to be getting better, and now this! I appreciate any advice as this is a very new hobby. Thank-you
  8. 2 of my 3 nerites have been at the top of the tank for the last 2 days I moved them to clean the tank and when one was going back up to the top I noticed some white growths on its side. I've been battling with this tank to give the snails the correct water conditions because one of the snails has bad shell erosion I've tried putting eggshells in but not sure if it's working I've dosed equilibrium in the past and have wonder shells as well but my water is pretty hard so I don't use those often. My GH is usually around 200-300ppm KH between 40-120ppm oh is 7.8 0 ammonia 0 nitrite and 40ppm nitrate everyone else in the tank is super happy my platys can't stop having babies and even my aenues corydoras are mating now so I'm quite frustrated at the trouble I'm having with these snails.
  9. Hi, 3 days ago I purchased 10 Glowligh tetras from a pet shop. Upon arrival at home I noticed one of them had some white spots on the tail and some white on the fins. Another one had some redness on their stomach which now turned into what's seen on the photo, I assume fungus? I'm not sure what the disease is and what medication to treat it with. Water parameters are all perfect. As of now in the house I have: Seachem's Prime, Stability, Clarity Interpet's Anti Fungus and Finrotn, Interpet's Aqualibrium first aid salt additive, AllPondSollutions Aquarium Rescue, King British Disease Clear and King British White spot Control Since I don't have a hospital tank and other fish now started showing some white on their fins I will be treating the whole 58L tank at once. The two fish with the most visible symptoms are in the photo. Any help is much appreciated
  10. I have had 5 corydoras in Quarantine for a month now. They have been treated with 2 rounds of paracleanse. They have been growing well and no longer have swollen stomachs. Went to go get them to move to my main tank and found one looking like the picture below taking its final breaths. obviously transfer is on hold. Remaining 4 look fine swimming around. There are bladder snails, MTS, and mystery snails in the tank with Java fern and hornwort. Nitrate is 20-30 temp 78 kH ~3 ammonia and nitrite 0 gH 7 pH 7.8 What could cause this? What do I need treat with again to clear the remainder in quarantine? thanks
  11. I am at a loss. Water quality spot on, temp 78, excellent filtration, two air stones, calcium, salt,weekly water changes,etc. In the past two and a half weeks I have lost 8 guppies from my 29 gal tank. I treated once with melafix and lost 3 of the 8. My fry is unaffected. One Cory lost part of his dorsal and tail but growing back and doing well. Lost some beautiful fish. It does look like a fungal issue. The fins look as if they disintegrate. Any suggestions.
  12. Over the past week or so I have lost all but one CPD. Every day one or two would die. I did the med trio on the entire tank and they kept dying all week. I continued to feed normally half the week. This morning I fed the two that are left with my normal food, but had not been feeding recently and almost immediately the remaining adult CPD began the twitch of death and listing that was the sign I recognized all week at the sign that the fish wouldn't make it til the next day. Is it possible that my putting wet fingers in the food over a couple of months would cause it be poisonous? All other fish shrimp etc. have been fine??? I looked at the remaining food on a white plate and don't see anything obvious. I see all over the internet people loosing all their CPDs one at a time and so bummed this keeps happening to people. Thanks All! Chris
  13. Hello everyone - I'm looking for info regarding freshwater diseases, treatments, quarantine protocols, etc. Does such information exist here as a "sticky" or elsewhere? TIA
  14. First post here and it’s gonna be a long one because I want to give as much info as possible. I've been having a strange issue with my pristella tetras in my planted community tank. I first got them in mid December of 2020 and I want to say it was early February when I first noticed some small dark patches on one of them; It didn’t look like any diseases I’m familiar with and it was only one fish, so I just assumed it was some natural variation in color or scars I hadn't noticed before, but after a week or so the patches were bigger and it started swimming strangely so I moved it to my 10 gallon quarantine tank where it died the next day. It wasn’t until April 14th that I noticed another pristella tetra with similar patches, this time with a growth on it’s mouth and a small chunk of its tail missing. I immediately scooped the fish out and stuck it in a little 1 gallon quarantine tank. The main tank had already been treated with ICH-X as a precaution after I moved in a new neon (for just a few minutes) that had been in quarantine without noticing it’s ich, so that medication doesn’t seem to have an effect on whatever this is. I did start treating the pristella with KanaPlex in it’s quarantine tank, but that had no effect either. I never did see it eat after removing it, and it eventually started to swim very weakly/float around and died on April 28th. The same day that the second fish died, I managed to catch and quarantine a third pristella tetra that I noticed has the same dark patches (noticed maybe 5 days prior, but it was exceptionally hard to catch compared to the others), so far this one is alive but not eating and occasionally swims kinda weakly. I haven’t treated with anything since the meds I have on hand don’t seem to do anything, and I can’t for the life of me figure out what the issue is. The black patches start out just looking like pigmentation, but after a while they seem to turn into raised bumps. My many google searches show nothing that looks the same except for occasional forum posts much like this one where people are confused about dark patches on their fish and nobody is able to give a concrete diagnosis; seems like it’s only tetras but that could just be a product of my search terms. It just seems really strange to me that it’s happening to so few fish, only the pristella tetras so far, and so long after getting them. The aquarium is a heavily planted low tech 55 gallon kept at 75F, weekly water changes of 50-70%, weekly doses of Easy Green and SeaChem Flourish Potassium. Ammonia and nitrites always test at or near enough to 0 ppm that I can’t tell the difference, nitrates hover between 10-20 ppm depending on how long since the last water change, PH is 7.5. Tank stock is 4 pristella tetras (originally 7), 6 neon tetras (more in the quarantine tank until I figure this out), 7 siamese algae eaters, 3 clown plecos, 1 otocinclus, a few dozen endler/guppy hybrids, and a bunch of cherry shrimp; everything else seems perfectly healthy including the remaining pristellas. I feed New Life Spectrum flake food, Hikari micro pellets, Fluval Bug Bites pleco formula, Hikari algae wafers, and Ocean Nutrition instant baby brine, no live foods ever. No fish have been added to the main tank since December other than the one neon for a few minutes and all issues that it and it's quarantine tankmates had have since cleared up. I have added new plants multiple times since first getting the fish so maybe something hitched a ride. Other examples of people with similar looking disease problems, the third link has multiple people reporting similar symptoms: http://www.wetwebmedia.com/PristellaF.htm http://www.wetwebmedia.com/FWSubWebIndex/BlackNeonTetF.htm https://www.aquariacentral.com/forums/threads/anyone-able-to-identify-black-spots.133788/ I don't have pictures of the first fish, so I can't compare to the other 2 and I guess it is possible that what it had was something completely different, which might explain the gap in time between them, but if memory serves me correctly it looked pretty much the same (with the base of the tail being the most prominent dark area) and in the third link above people mention months between infections. It might be worth noting that I had a skinny female guppy die the other day, but I would just assume that was from old age, I can't keep track of all their ages, but there's been a population in there for years so that happens every once in a while and it wouldn't be unusual for them to waste away a bit before finally dying (it had no other symptoms and all other fish seem fine). Any help steering me in the right direction would be appreciated.
  15. A few weeks ago, I posted a topic on here and we diagnosed that the white stuffs on the fins are some type of Stalked Cilliates parasite. So I spent 2 weeks treating the tank with Paraclancse and IchX (after a couple weeks of salt treatment then Maracyn and IchX) but I got very little result. One of them did get better but for the other three not too much. Their tail fins are somewhat rotting as well. They are still super active and agile. Anyone know anything about this or anyways to treat this? I have attached videos of them. Not sure if they are very clear like the last post. They are super camera shy https://imgur.com/gallery/PLkO82J
  16. Jeepers... a double hit. Delivered to me via friend from LFS, so I did not view myself, not that I would have seen it in the fish stores tanks. Very easy to see in substrate free quarantine tank. Has anyone had success with treating this fungus and parasite? Here is an article that suggests Kordon Rid- ICH for the fungus. I have ICH-X, Paraguard, and Malachite Green in my arsenal. Salt baths for the Scutariella? I'm not holding my breath for cleaning them up, as I know shrimp are sensitive not only to some meds but large water changes. Probably will end up getting a store credit, but not replacing these imported shrimp from the same store. Lucky for me I quarantined them. https://aquariumbreeder.com/ellobiopsidae-or-cladogonium-ogishimae-green-fungus-in-shrimp-tank/
  17. Hi all i have a 36 gallon bowfront. I had moved a new pearl gourami in and he had immediately shown signs of fin rot and fungus. I got the quarantine Trio to use on my fish. I have 3 problems 1. I started off using Pima and mela fix but then found out they are not good for labyrinth fish due to the tree oil. After 2 days i stopped using this i started doing daily water changes until the quarantine trio came in 3 days later, so 3 straight days of water changes after i stopped dosing pima and melafix 2. Ich-x says to do a water change before every dose, but Maracyn says to not. In aquarium co-op’s video it said they go great together so I tried it to urgently help my fish but now am not sure on what to do. 2. After 2 days of medicating the Ich-X and Maracyn without water changes, my loach of 6 months and Gold Nugget Pleco of 7 months were dead. What is happening??!! I just want to save my tank. I have no money for test strips as that money went to the quarantine trio. Now 2 fish that were perfectly healthy are dead. What the hell aquarium co-op?!?
  18. Hello. I have noticed a white clumpy spot on one of the skirt tetra fins about a year ago and weirdly enough, it didnt spread until recently and only to the other fish of the same species. It doesn't look fussy and only on fins. I have been treating them with Maracyn in combination with IchX and got no result from it. Now I have been doing salt bath with 1Tbsp per gallon for about 2 weeks and still no result. Some of the white clumps did go away but they leave behind red patches on the tetra fins. I would love to get some idea on what this is and how can I treat it. Below I've attached a link to the video. Link to Video
  19. Anyone know whats going on with my salvia? Some of them turn white or maybe have white mold or something growing on them? To be safe I cut out the white leaves but I'm wondering if I should be concerned.
  20. Okay, so over the past few months, my fish have been healthly, but I always noticed them rubbing their sides against the sand (guppies, cories, and algae eaters). I also had a bristlenose pleco and a pearl gourami in the aquarium, but they didn't rub themselves against the sand. Two days ago, the pleco suddenly died, but everyone else in the tank was fine. Just yesterday, the gourami stopped eating and only swam around in a small area in his aquarium. Yesterday night, I noticed something hanging out of him that wasn't feces. I think it's a parasite. Does anyone know of any medications I can use to get rid of this parasite? I watched a video by Cory on Fritz Paracleanse, but it is not at my PetSmart or PetCo. Would you think it would be at a local store (I live nowhere near the Co-Op)? Also, if not, are there any other medications to try? And are they fry and egg safe (I have guppy fry and cory eggs)? Thanks.
  21. Hi everyone! This my first post here, sadly it is about a fish disease :(. The symptoms are flashing, "yawning" (ie gulping water as I understand), and this mysterious growth from a single point on his head. This just started about two days ago with the flashing. I just noticed the growth today. Eating normally, fairly active, have done 25% water changes the past few days, no other inhabitants. I've included pictures of the growth (in the last one it looks like there is a white spot on his left fin, that is not present anymore, maybe something in the water). Here are my water parameters. Unfortunately I do not have a kit to test my water for hardness and kh/buffer. Is that recommended? : pH: 6.6 Nitrates: ~2 ppm Nitrite: 0 ppm Ammonia: 0 ppm Water Temp: 82 F Thank you everyone in advance!!!
  22. My dwarf gourami has been acting strange for the past two days and today he has stopped reacting to me outside his tank. All he does is float now, even lets the (not too strong) filter output push him around. He has a very slight spine curve when he moves but not as severe as some pictures I've seen. His fins look fine but he looks a little paler than usual. Stomach is definitely bloated and he is just floating around. He is not upside down although sometimes I see him lean sideways. It is just him in a 10g cycled tank with some mystery snails and shrimp. Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 10. All other parameters good and what he is always used to, so no changes. In the time I was typing this I watched him sink down to the bottom but quickly fight is way to the top again to float. I have done some research and tried to feed him a boiled frozen pea a few times, but he did not eat it even if I held it right in front of him. I have not fed him for two days at this point. I love this fish, can anyone help!?
  23. Hey everyone, I have been in a battle against camillanus worms in my 55g for a few months now. This tank originally was fully planted with substrate and had two female black mollies, one male, one female dalmatian molly, and one male silver lyretail molly, and a group of 2 male 3 female panda guppies (who have all since produced a lot of fry), 2 mystery snails, and some malaysian trumpet snails. I first noticed the worms in a few of my panda guppies when they were coming out of their anuses, and I moved these fish to a quarantine tank. For a period of about a month and a half, I medicated both the quarantine tank and the 55g with thomaslabs fenbendezole (mixing it with the food and wetting with tankwater to soak it up), gravel vacuuming about 5 times a week, and for a while the 55 looked to be worm free until bloating and stringy poop in my mollies. When the everything aquatic levamisole flakes I had ordered arrived, I gave it about a week med free and then switched to 3 weeks of the levamasole, continuing to vac. My efforts to eradicate the worms from my 55g were a confirmed failure around this time, when I noticed one of the molly fish had camillanus coming out. At this point I figured it was necessary to temporarily remove the fish in order to take out the substrate (so that no more eggs would linger in the substrate) to do a more through de-worming. I moved the fish back (and the quarantine guppies-no reason to isolate them anymore) to the 55g when levels were appropriate (ph took a dip around here, I elaborate later, but the fish were reintroduced at about 7.0 down from 7.6 when I went from bare bottom to just some shells and coral on the bottom) and was finishing the 3 weeks of levamisole around this time, gave a week of regular feeding (2 times a day). The fish continue to show symptoms (increasingly swollen abdomen, stringy poop, a few with visible worms coming out). In the past few days, fish have started flashing, including the many molly, guppy, and muppy(?) fry, who have also been increasingly nipping at the fins of the bigger mollies. The tank is at this point bare bottomed with some shells, coral, and a few unpotted plants (for filtration and line of sight blocks) and 2 big sponge filters, one running through a power head, an airstone running. One black molly got her dorsal fin nipped bad by the fry, and I began adding instant ocean marine salt (5 tbsp per every 5 gallons) to clean the wound without introducing more meds. Over about 3 days, the wound area began to look paler than the rest of her, grayish like a small scuff (one which I have seen from aggression among these mollies in the past which healed quickly) from the fish biting one another at first, then a little bit more white as it spread onto her back in the next few days, sort of blotchy and inconsistent looking (unfortunately I didn't take a picture of this before she passed... she was the only fish showing any symptom like this until yesterday, when another black molly got a small dot like this on her back just below the dorsal fin). Last night, the fish with the wound died (the salt did not help), and another molly fish died this morning, this one showing no similar symptoms on her scales (she was a Dalmatian molly, so maybe the coloration impacts its visibility), though she did have an increasingly bloated stomach (probably worms she could not pass). The mystery snails also died, probably as a result of the fenbendezole, though the malaysian trumpets live on. Levels have been relatively consistent through this with the exception of PH, which usually sits around 7.5, took a dip to 6.8 when removing substrate, which I slowly worked back up to a consistent range of 7.5-6 with small pinches of baking soda in water changes. The water has also been increasingly cloudy the past week, probabaly because of a bacterial bloom which may have caused the wounded black molly to become infected (I am uncertain what happened to her, and its part of what I am asking you all for advice on). I know now that I should have de wormed all of the fish better before putting them in the display tank, but I was fresh to the hobby when starting this tank up... and this post is seeking out advice to cure my fish, not any scolds about quarantine tanking (I get the impression that most of the aquarium co op community congregates around frustration with the inconsistent fish police). I will upload a picture of the fish with the small blotch on her back once I can figure out how. Is there any other medication or treatment I should consider to get these fish to better health? Thanks for reading and your advice, Jake
  24. We have a Koi betta fish and is sick for some reason. The pictures of his current condition is in the attached links. He has a very swollen lip and holes in the fins. https://drive.google.com/file/d/19GWQrXi7A5ssy1wYk0-BAfduDWoz2kwG/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1h8dZDO7iwpheXCYqWYNdOXq8TRA137eF/view?usp=sharing What would you recommend us to do to save him? We just bought Microbe-lift Artemiss-natural expellant for bacterial diseases from Petco. We were advised to add it into our 4-gallon tank and change 75% of tank water for 3 days straight. Could someone give some advise? Thank you!
  25. My guppy had a white spot that is almost banded around the end of her tail show up overnight, I’m trying to identify it as it doesn’t really look like parasites but it’s also not fuzzy like the images of fungus I’ve seen online. She swims fine and still has a voracious appetite. In terms of things I know have changed, I added some crushed coral in because I had some of what I think was stress related deaths before I introduced these new guppies (a male and female killed eachother, and the second female died a few days later after looking stressed) and people on the forum recommended coral based off my water parameters (soft water and low ph). I added the crushed coral maybe 2 days ago with her and the male in the tank before introducing 2 new females, and did notice her rub on my anubias while I sprinkled it in, but she doesn’t do that commonly. If you guys have an idea on what it is and treatment options I would love to hear it, if needed I can try to set up an old 1.5 gal tank to separate her, but it would be easier to treat in the main tank, as I would need to cycle the 1.5. But I have live plants and cherry shrimp
