  2. Heyo, I ordered these Julii Corydoras but the website doesn't say if they're true or false Juliis. I personally can not tell from these pictures, can anyone identify them?
  3. Pop quiz! What are these brown tendrils? Not really a quiz because I don’t know the answer. 😊 I’m having trouble finding information. My searches keep turning up brown algae but the pictures I see don’t really match. What do you think? 🤔 Thank you!
  4. Hello! I know most of my goldfish breeds but I just cannot seem to place this beautiful fish that caught my eye at the fish store the other day. The owner said she was a ryukin but I don't believe him, seeing as she doesn't really have an upper hump at all. Is she a fantail or veil tail? Or something I'm just not seeing? She didn't really look like an oranda to me... Thank you all!
  5. Hello! I'm having the hardest time trying to find out what kind of longfin bristlenose pleco this is. Any help is much appreciated! Also if you have any tips on identifying fish please leave them below! Thanks! -Scott L.
  6. Hello everyone, a couple weeks ago I got some floating plants from the co-op. I thought it was just going to be water lettuce, nope there are two other plants and I don't know what they are. I think one of them is frog bit? I don't know which, but my gut says so. I need help identifying both planted circled with red. Also I don't know if the larger plant is a floater or not, the roots are a lot longer and the leaves are pretty big, I just left it floating because I don't think it would hurt anything. In the second photo, you can see how much bigger the roots are compared to the plants that I know are floaters (but don't know the name of). Thank you. PS. I know there is a ton of algae, I'm working on it
  7. Found this cool little guy on my glass. It moves like a snail, but has no shell. It also has a clear jelly-like substance encasing it. I’m curious if anyone knows what it could be. It’s very large compared to the copepods also present in this tank.
  8. Hi all! I’m trying to identify this tiny baby snail that hitch hiked into my tank, I do have nerites laying eggs and have yet to see any hatch but I’m almost certain this isn’t a nerite based on the foot and it appeared just after adding salvinia minima. Anyways, since the photo is a little hard to make out, it’s mostly transparent with brown speckled from the tip of the spiral which does protrude out not in like a ramshorn.. I’m guessing and hoping it’s a mystery snail but also just have no idea. I want to properly care for it not eradicate it but if it’s a pesty type of snail I do have assassin snails too to keep a population under control. https://ibb.co/HrczqJD https://ibb.co/swsdpZg https://ibb.co/tzqYNvb https://ibb.co/0q6FJLp https://ibb.co/6v2L9GY thanks for any help!
  9. 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
  10. Different Size leaves on each stem, each vine is about 8 inches. Found a little hole in the wall fish store, and they had this plant in one of their setups. The owner didn't know what it was took it in on trade, I have 20x 6 to 12 inch lengths of this. It doesn't look like Anubias so I have no clue. It was deep dark green, but must not like my water just yet.
  11. Bought these at my LFS and they were labeled as Gold Clown Barbs, but not finding them under that name on the internet. Pretty cool looking, with shiny interlacing scales that the pic doesn't do justice to, and an orangish belly on the males I imagine. Wish I new what they actually are.
  12. We didn't see the differences when we picked him up, he was all alone in a tank by himself in the corner, as were two others, so we foolishly "rescued" all three. And when we got him home and got a real good look, we didn't think he'd make it through the night. He seemed smudged and his eyes were sunk in! But he did, then a week, then a month, and more. He's doing well with our other "rescued" false jullii now regrowing their barbels in a quarantine tank. He's active, but not as strong yet, and has remained smaller. Anyone know what he is? I've looked at pictures online of different corydoras but haven't yet found something that seems to match all three of his "racoon" mask, the large bluish dots near the tail fin along with his dark dorsal. And that's ignoring his odd little eyes. Someday we'd like him to have his own kind to swim with, if we knew what to look for. Much appreciated if anyone has suggestions.
  13. This is my first forum post 🙂 Can anyone help me identify what kind of Corydora this is, please? I live in Seoul, and I saw this guy in my LFS while looking for Brochis multiradiatus for my goldfish tank. The corydora in the picture measures about 3 inches from the tip of its nose to the base of the caudal fin. I looked at a corydora chart I found on Google but am still having trouble identifying it, so I have come to the fish gurus and Nerms here. PS: I uploaded the original picture, but the preview I saw here kept showing it upside down. I eventually just screenshot it, cropped it, and uploaded it (which is what you see here).
  14. I have been looking around but can't find anything.
  15. I got my plants in the mail, they look wonderful, thank you to cory and his team. I also got a little buddy in the mail that I'd like to be able to properly take care of. Can anyone tell me what kind of snail this is?
