  1. Hi friends!! I got a little herd of 10 lambchop rasboras in the mail on Tuesday. My husband floated the bag and then plopped them in the tank almost as soon as they arrived on my doorstep. I lost one on Thursday (it was looking suspect on Wednesday...pale, not eating, not schooling...no other visible signs of illness). I lost one on Friday (it was looking similarly suspect...so, I moved it to a quarantine tank and started to treat with Maracyn...it died ~ 15 minutes after the move). I've got a funny looking one today (Saturday)...he's sticking with the group sometimes, and sometimes I lose him, only to find him by the filter by himself later. He did eat the krill flakes with the crew this morning and will randomly pick back up with the school. I did a 20% water change today after checking the water parameters because the nitrite tube wasn't perfectly blue (it was close...but not perfect) and seeing the funny acting rasbora. Prior to that, I did a 25% water change on Wednesday after the death of the first rasbora. I added 15 mL of BB (Fluval's BioCycle) on Friday after I pulled the second sick rasbora and 10 mL of BB today after the water change because my tank is so new and I was worried it could be an issue with the cycle. My water parameters before my water change today were: Tank size = 20 gallon long - started on March 13th (1 month, 4 days ago) pH = 7.4 (steady) Nitrates = 10 ppm Hardness = 9 dGH (steady) Nitrite = less than 0.25 ppm (this prompted the water change) Ammonia = 0 ppm Alkalinity = 4 dKH (steady) Water Temperature = 78 degrees Fahrenheit (steady) I will happily accept any and all advice!! I am a newbie and I know it! 😜 I didn't quarantine because the source is a trusted source and they were the first non-invertebrate additions to my new tank (well...them and my new corydoras...the corys are doing great! I love those little water puppies!).
  2. I have 2 Harlequin rasboras that have each turned up with a tiny white speck on their lower lips. Water is changed weekly (25%). Gravel is vacuumed bi-weekly, at which time the spong filter also gets cleaned. Ammonia is 0, pH is steady from week-to-week at 7.2, nitrate (20 gallon planted tank) is steady at 20 ppm, temperature 77 degrees. The other 5 rasboras and their tank mates (5 ember tetras, and 3 albino corys) all look fine. Any idea what this might be?
  3. We've had these rasbora's for about 6 months. This afternoon we just noticed this on one of them. Is this cotton mouth? sorry for the blurry photos, these guys are difficult to get a fix on. A couple questions: - I read that the bacteria that causes cotton mouth is present in all aquarium. If this is the case what is the point in separating it? - I have Melafix and Imagitarium bacterial infection remedy, I can dose the whole tank with all the fish or the fish separated out into its own tank. Would either of these medication be a good idea to use? Tank setup: 20 gal long, planted, inert substrate, medium light, no CO2 parameters - tested yesterday: 0 ammonia and nitrite, 10 - 30 nitrate (depending on fertilization and water changes), 7 PH, 6dgh and 2dkh. temp: 78f
  4. Howdy, I have a 5.5 moderately planted tank with 8 neocardina shrimp, 6 exclamation point rasboras, 6 strawberry rasboras , and a variety of snails. The back and sides are planted, and the middle and front is fairly open. The tank is about two months old. I started off with just the shrimp and the exclamation points, but the fish seemed really shy and spent most of thier time huddled in the back of the tank. I thought maybe 6 was too few, so I wanted to get them some more friends to reduce their stress. When I went to the LFS, they didn't have any exclamation points in, but they had a bunch of very cute and very active strawberries. The shop employee said that the strawberries would shoal with the exclamation points, and they would get along just fine, so I brought them home and added them to the tank. In general, the strawberries have been much more active than the exclamation points, but I have seen them mixed together and swimming around. The last few days, I have seen a few of the bigger strawberries chasing and nipping some of the smaller exclamation points, and one was even nipping at some bladder snails. Is there anything I can do to ameliorate this? Everything I read talks about how strawberries are peaceful community fish, great with shrimp, not aggressive, etc. Do I just have a particularly rowdy group?
  5. So I have a 75 gallon heavier planted tank with cardinal tetras, ember tetras, and some rasboras. Want to add to it and had some suggestions of rainbows and Bolivian rams. Would Bolivian rams and rainbows work with my current fish? I know anything is possible I’m just nervous of getting them and waking up and all my tetras and rasboras gone with the rams and rainbows with full bellies . I guess I’m looking for possible reassurance that this combination is doable 😂

  10. My rasboras aren’t looking too good - can I get help diagnosing if this is ich or velvet? And if velvet, how to treat? First noticed they looked bad Nov. 24, and did a water test. Parameters were as follows: ph 7, 0/0/20, temp 75. The spots look much smaller, more dust than salt-like than what I've seen as Ich on my neon tetras (different tank) in the past, but as the fish are smaller I decided to try it anyway. That same day I started dosing IchX once per 24 hours with a 30% WC. I raised them temp to 80 as well, and blacked out the tank for 72 hours in case it was velvet and that could help. There doesn’t seem to have been a huge improvement in that time period (This evening I will be doing dose #6). No deaths have yet occured, but the rasboras seem to be slowing down and looking more worn out, though they are still chasing each other and the tetras. Only my rasboras seem to be affected. Can anyone help? Tank inhabitants: 18 neon green rasboras, 8 adult ember tetras, 3 baby ember tetras (born in the tank a few weeks ago), 6 sterbai corydoras, 3 gold laser corydoras. Recent tank history: I added a school of 10 rasboras and 3 gold laser cories (that I road tripped to the coop to get!) to the tank about 3 weeks ago. They had been in qt in a densely planted 20 gallon for 3-4 weeks with qt meds and no signs of illness. The tank's temp had previously been set to 80, and I reduced it to 75 when adding the rasboras and laser cories. Since adding them, they have been sparring non-stop and have kept the ember tetras hiding in the plants around the edges of the tank. I went to remove the obviously unhappy tetras and noticed the rasboras are in rough shape and I hadn’t noticed before. For now, the tetras are staying in, but I will remove them and try to reduce the angst in the tank amongst the rasboras if possible, especially if this stress was part of what led to the disease. If this level of chasing is normal, that would be good info to have too. In the past, when I got my first school of 8 rasboras, they started as a much larger number and I lost a lot then too. Are these fish just super crazy delicate and get sick every time another school is added? I love their color, but the sickness is stressful! More Tank info: 40 gallons, sponge filter, heater, live plants, petrified wood rock, play sand and eco complete, driftwood and fake decor hobbit hole. Set up mid summer - the ember tetras have been in it for most of that time, and have been spawning and the babies doing fine throughout all of this. *Tank looks slightly cloudy in pic, this is just the bright light. Thanks for reading to the end, and for any help!
  11. Hello everyone, I am seeking any advice pertaining to a massive Rasbora die off in my 29Gal tank. My water parameters are: 76.5 degrees F, 0 ppm ammonia, PH: 7.4-7.8, 0 Nitrite, and 10ppm Nitrate. Food once a day: Sera San nature color flakes, live black worms (for the baddis), Some additive foods every other day (pick one): baby brine shrimp, blood worms and frozen brine shrimp I dose my tank with Seachem Florish Excel (1cap/day) and Seachem Florish (1 cap/ week). Symptoms: -white fins (different for each fish some dorsal some one side some tail etc.) -white spots on the sides of body -eyes popping off on the dead fish -isolation, and occasional belly up, then they flip back to normal and continue swimming -flicking against leaves, wood and walls Back story: About 3 weeks ago I was at a boring point with my tank. Went to the store and wanted to change things up a bit, guy at the store suggested 3 pea puffers and 3 scarlet badis... for a community tank (horrible idea in hindsight) I added the fish to my heavily planted tank comprised of (a lot of guppies 20+, 5 juli corys, 3 brocci corys, 15 harlequins, 13 neon tetras, 4 otosinclus cats, 5 amano shrimp, and 2 nitrite snails, and a lot of pest snails) the idea was to have the pea puffers and baddis feed on the pest snails, and help keep the guppies under control. Everything seemed great for the next week. Then I went on a 6 day vacation. Came home to 5 dead Rasboras all with bite wounds, and 1 dead guppy. The Rasboras that remained seemed very stressed, some bite wounds and fin rot, and white patches... I immediately did a 90% water change, returned the pea puffers in exchange for 3 more harlequins (13 total now) then did a 50% water change the following day. Went to work the 3rd day from being home and after work found 2 more dead Rasboras (not the new ones). Did a massive internet search to find that it could be bacteria Columnaris. Went to the local fish store to ask their suggestion; they recommended seachem kanaplex treatment + mixing it into the frozen brine shrimp food. In all 9 fish have died... 8 harlequins and 1 guppy (likely from birth while on vacation). The seachem kanaplex treatment says to stop after 3 treatments...the third treatment was 24hrs ago...so now I don't know wether or not to do a water change or to keep the treatment going...? Last night I finally got some aquarium salt to supplement the treatment but came home to another dead one today. I am down to 5 harlequins and 3 of which have white spots still... Will all my fish die from this? Am I treating properly? Also, will the aquarium salt kill off my plants? Im stressed, my fish are stressed, if someone could help that would be great.
  12. How does one successfully treat velvet? So far, I have tried IchX for a week with no success. (Thinking it was ich, before determining from pics and good local lfs employee that its actually velvet) Lfs has recommended copper safe (I have a cycled bare qt tank to use) set temp at 80F, cut the lights, and I’d add some aquarium salt too. Lfs said to dose the copper up to 1.5 ppm and just leave it. Can anyone who has successfully cured a fish of velvet provide any experience or advice? The fish in question are neon green rasboras and the school size that remains was still a significant investment and just feel sick that I might lose them all. I have a previous post titled “Ich or velvet? Neon green rasboras not doing well” if you want more background on my situation. I can update that thread with what I try and if it works as well. (Still new to forums, so want to be sure I do it right 😅) Thanks in advance for any help!

  15. Hi fellow hobbyists! I was wondering if any of you have experience with Exclamation Point Rasboras? I had a school (11) of them in a 20 gallon long with Endlers and a few neon tetras. They were hiding a lot, and getting outcompeted for food, some of them didn’t have great color which indicated to me some stress...I’ve moved them now into a 10 gallon on their own (except for six habrosus corydoras). Heavily planted. In my office with less traffic. My tanks have moderate hardness (kh and gh 100 ppm) from crushed coral, pH 7-7.5, nitrites 0, nitrates between 20-40 ppm. Attached is a pick of the tank they are in, with the med trio running in it to make sure I haven’t missed anything. They still are very shy, any advice to help them feel more confident and lower stress more? Maybe more of them? Thank You all!!
  16. Will Harelquin, Espei and Hengeli Rasboras all school together if I get ten of each?
