LisaBoBisa Posted October 11, 2021 Share Posted October 11, 2021 I need some serious help with this new 30 gal. tank I inherited from my sister-in-law before she moved. It began as a goldfish tank, but is now only guppies. We still have the goldfish (Buckets) but had to buy a new tank for him because the guppies started eating him alive when I stopped feeding them to try and get them to eat on the algae. Next the guppies killed the mystery snail and stressed two zebra niriates enough to make them go belly up. Luckily they where alive when I found them and are living peacefully with Buckets. I want to get more algae eaters but am scared they will get eaten too. Here is what I am doing: -There is one olive niriate that is doing great in there along with a ton of bladder snails working overtime on the problem. -I dose Easy Carbon as recommended every other day -I turned the lights down to 8hrs a day from the 12 it was at. -I stopped feeding them, they seem more interested in eating ANYTHING besides algae including the weak ones. It has been over a month doing this and it is worse! I do have the other 30 gal, with the goldfish, should I swap the guppies and the gold fish and add the algae team that way? I’ve included pics of both. Thank you for any advice ❤️ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
