  1. Can a beta and 6 green neon tetra live together in a 10 gallons or it’s too small? Thank you!
  2. I have green neon tetra that are sick. They have white parasite visible, fuzzy part, etc. I have treated them with maracyn, ich-x, melafix, paracleanse, salt, levamisole… nothing work. I removed my plants in the aquarium to try salt again. But I am wondering if my plants are contaminated or dangerous? Should I let them soak in a container for a bit before I use them in my other tanks or just throw them away for better safety? Same for my chola wood?
  3. My green neon tetras an not doing any better. Really hoping for some insight @Cory I have a community tank. Population : 1 honey gourami, 10 green neon tetra, 10 chili rasbora, 7 false julii cory, 4 nerita snails. Cycled, planted, temp about 75, ph 7.6, kh 4, gh 11, 0/0/(between 0 and 30). WC + gravel siphon every week or 2 weeks depending. On the first week of june, I noticed 3 of my green neon tetra had white patches on their tail. Just some kind of discoloration but no fuzziness. Then a kind of blister appeared on the top of the head of one of them, as well as a white fuzzy patch behind it’s dorsal fin. They all still swim and eat. And none of the other fishes caught it. I treated the whole community tank with Maracyn + Ick-X, nothing happened. I then moved then 10 hreen neon tetra to a 2 gallons hospital tank. I treated them with salt (1 tbs/gallon) and supratect (some natural meds based on garlic) + 50% wc every 2 days (and redosing salt) for 2 weeks. No improvement but it didn’t get worst either. I was suggested kanaplex which I ordered but won’t get for 3-4 more days still. Meanwhile I tried Melafix and the symptoms on my fish got much more worst. More fuzzy patch appeared. The anal region of the fish with a blister on its head is red, the blister is red and white. One fish that only had mild symptoms now is covered with fungus and seems deformed. I am starting to wonder if it can be curable at all or if I should put them out of their misery. I moved them in a quarantine 10 gallons. Some of the other fish are starting to get cotton mouth so I am treating again with Maracyn + Ich-X until I get the kanaplex. At this point, should I sort the sick fish vs the healthy one or just keep treating them all? And just to top the cake, one of my otocinclus in my 20 gallons community tank is having fungus on one of its pectoral fins... So I moved him with the green neon tetra. It’s upsetting because the main cause of these diseases seem to be water quality but I do 30% wc + gravel siphon at least once a week. I may overfeed but my corydoras eat the remains and there is never rotten food or anything at the bottom of the tank. Starting to think I am a bad fish keeper and should just quit the hobby if I cause them more harm then good no matter how well intentioned I am.
  4. I have a community tank. Population : 1 honey gourami, 10 green neon tetra, 10 chili rasbora, 7 false julii cory, 4 nerita snails. Cycled, planted, temp about 75, ph 7.6, kh 4, gh 11, 0/0/(between 0 and 30). WC every week or 2 weeks depending. On the first week of june, I noticed 3 of my neon tetra had white pathches on their tail. Just some kind of discoloration but no fuzziness.

I am treating them with salt (1 tbs/gallon) and supratect (some natural meds based on garlic) + 50% wc every 2 days (and redosing salt). It’s been 2 weeks and there is no improvement at all. The symptoms are the same. And the other fishes still healthy. What should be my next step? Any other treatment I could try? What about the 8 healthy tetras? Do I still leave them in the hospital tank? I feel bad treating them as they are fine, but as they are schooling fish, is it ok to separate the sick ones? Won’t they be stressed to only be 2-3 in their tank. I think I accidentally caused this problem - I stupidly cleaned my HOB filter while it was still running and when I pulled the last one sponge, a huge cloud of gunk spilled in the aquarium which instantly became brown. I did a WC right after but the problem on my green neon tetra appeared few days after. If someone could help, I would really appreciate. The fish seem to eat and swim just fine. How long do I keep trying to heal it? Do I give up and euthanize him? Or as it does not seem contagious, I give up and put him back in the community tank? @Cory
  5. 20 gallons Population : 1 honey gourami, 10 chili rasboras, 14 green neon tetras, 7 false julii corydoras and 4 nerita snails. pH 7.6. Temps about 75 F, 0/0/20, gh 8, kh 4 My green neon tetras used to eat everything. Now, the only food they will eat is frozen food (blood worm, daphnia, brine shrimp). Any other food, they won’t even take it in their mouth and spit it - at best they push it with their nose... 😲 They won’t even eat bug bites from Fluval. I feed my fish a variety of food (flake, pellets, frozen, freeze dried) and each of these at least 2-3 different kind (like I have 3-4 kind of pellets, etc). I used to give frozen food only once or twice a week but now I give some max every 2 days, not wanting them to starve. But do you have any suggestions how I can get them to eat dry food again? Thank you!
  6. Green neon originally had a fleshy pebble like mass near the gill and now has this little fleshy but jagged area. About a week ago I dosed salt for a couple days and the area looked better now it has this. No other fish at issue.
  7. Just noticed a pink to human skin tone mass on my green neon’s gill. No evidence of stress. Staying with the school. This is the biggest fish in the school. Have not observed any other fishes with this. pH 6.8-7, temp 75, tds 230, gh 2, kh 8, ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 5-10. Water change 2 days ago of 50%. I change water weekly. Have not used any meds in there in about 4 months.
  8. pH: 8.0-ish Nitrates: None (Went down from last change) Hardness: "Very Hard" Nitrite: None Ammonia: None KH/Buffer: Stable, hasn't changed Water Temperature 78-ish We culled this one tonight after noticing that the body seemed bloated and "fuzzy"... Not even sure if that's the right word to describe it. Hopefully the pictures help make this make more sense. We had 11 Neon Green Tetra (now just 10) and 3 Adult Male Guppies. We have Vallisneria, Java Fern, Java Moss, and a Cryptocoyne Parva for plants. We opted to cull after seeing how red the gills had gotten, it seemed clear that this one was not doing well. No other tetras look strange. No big behavior changes were noticed. Only thing we can thing of is that it's been longer between routine water changes than we normally go (things have been crazy and we got complacent). We had our usual amount of algae growth, which I think is why we didn't see anything sooner. We've previously lost a couple of neon greens to dermosporidium/dermocystidium (those terms seemed to be used pretty interchangeably when I was looking that up ages ago). That was back in December. Any ideas about what this was? We can't have a QT set up in our apartment, so we'd be medicating all remaining fish.
  9. One of my green neon tetras is pale and possibly slightly bloated (see fish in center of photo). The tetra has had this appearance for nearly a week, and its condition hasn't changed. It has been swimming fine and eating OK. One difference is that the tetra appears to be territorial or at least aggressive towards other neons when they come around, although the tetra does swim with the other neons. I hadn't previously noticed the aggressive behavior with any of the tetras. The tetra has been in the tank for about 4 months. All of the other tetras appear normal as do other fish in the tank. The water parameters are nitrate 10-20, nitrite 0, ammonia 0, pH 7.8, GH 143 ppm, KH 89.5 ppm. Does this tetra have the dreaded "neon tetra" disease? I've looked on the web for a comparable photo but haven't been able to conclude. Thanks.
  10. Should I be worried? He is acting normally. Tank has two sunset honey gouramis, one reticulated hillstream, six lamb chop rasboras, bunch of pond snails, ten cherry shrimp, three amanos. The tank is planted, and I include a pic to show generally the environment. Parameters: temp 78.4, ph 7.4, NH3 and NO2 0, NO3 around 5.
  11. Greetings! I am looking for a very peaceful community fish to go in my 20 gallons. I currently have 8 false julii corydoras and 2 nerita. I will also get 1 honey gourami. For the community fish, I really like the green neon tetra but I am reading mixed reviews about them. I know they prefer lower ph but Girl Talk Fish channel (Irene) kept hers in a ph of 8 just fine (mine is 7.4) Are they difficult to keep? Should I aim for something else as I am a beginner? If yes, any suggestions? I have to say most of the common choice leave me pretty indifferent. Thank you! Karen
  12. Hey all, We have a 15 gallon tank with 13 Neon Green Tetras and 3 Male Guppies. We've got a Vallisneria plant, a Cryptocoyne Parva plant, a Java Fern, and some Java Moss in the tank. Chlorine Level: None Nitrites: None Nitrates: between 0 and 5ppm (closer to 5 than 0) pH: 8.2 (which is a bit high, but that's been the stable reading for our tank for months) Ammonia: None Temperature: Between 78-79 Fahrenheit (Pretty consistent) We did a 25% water change (gravel vacc'ed and cleared some algae from the front and sides of the tank so that we could see the little guys) on Sunday and discovered a weird bump on one of the tetras on Monday during feeding. It's up near the front of the fish, sort of under the mouth. The tetra still appears to be swimming fine, came up to feed with no problems, and otherwise appears to be behaving normally. It took a while to get some decent pictures, but see the attached photos for the bump.
