Neon Tetra problems already by Reel McKoi[_8_]
The 8 Neon tetras will not eat what I offer them. The platys and gouramies and one cory are eating everything. The Neon's just take the food in and spit it back out. One cory just hides by a rock. I've tried 5 different foods and the Neon's wont eat any of them. Suggestions anyone? --...

Melafix does not contain tea tree oil by Altum
I found the MelaFix patent and now I know why the stuff doesn't smell of tea tree. There's no tea tree oil in it. Everyone (Including Doc Johnson at KoiVet) just assumed that Melaleuca referred to M. alternifolia. I think it's a slightly misleading marketing ploy because people are so familiar...

Lost 3 of my Clown Loaches :-( by Gill Passman
I knew it was a possibility as I just couldn't get rid of the ich....the other two still have spots but I'm hoping that I can still beat it. I actually found out last night the probable cause of it's persistence...there was a small trace of nitrite although the water had been testing negative but I...

I would love to have a moonlight system in my tank. by [email protected]
I've been thinking that it would be cool to have a moonlight light in my tank. I am not sure if freshwater fish care for it, but it would just add a bit more realism to the tank for the fish. :) And I could sneak on them and see what they are doing, especially the crabs and shrimps. :) The...

Humanely kill a betta? by Renee
One of my bettas is clearly near death, but has remained in that state for over 2 days. He's lying on the bottom, and I've thought he *was* dead at least 4 times, but he frantically rouses himself when I go to scoop him out. Gulping desperately at the surface, then sinking and lying on his side...

Cycle sped up by heat? by RedForeman
Setting up the new 55g, I filled it, put in heater, connected canister filter with stock media, let it run for a few days to clear the flourite cloud. When it was clear, I continued to stir up the bottom a bit to keep it from worsening later... 5 days later, heater was tested, turned on, raised...

A tank in my cubicle?? by steve
Oh no, I'm in deep now. For a couple of weeks I've been pondering the idea of a small desk top tank here in my cubicle. There aren't any logical reasons why not to have one, and I can probably avoid the illogical reasons if I'm discrete. Anybody else have a desktop fish tank next to their...

pick 2 types of fish by NetMax
Imagine your local radio station runs a contest to pick someone to stock their new lobby aquarium, and a chain fish store has agreed to supply the fish, gravel & rocks, and as many fish as you want (within reason), but only 2 species. Imagine you won. It's a 5' 100g freshwater tank, lit, filtered...

A quick question about small Oscars,... by Papa Red
Just how quickly would an Oscar that is currently only about 2 to 3 inches in size, out grow a 30 gallon aquarium? I am thinking about purchasing one, and placing him or her into an aquarium that is currently equipped with both a Dolphin 200 and a Whisper power filter 20, to help keep it clean. ...

55 gal. filter by lonerider
Hi, I have my 55 gal freshwater tank set-up with a penguin bio-wheel 330. The output and intake sits off to one side because of the tank support in the center. The other side of the tank seems pretty calm and un-disturbed with the plants not even moving. I feel as though it just isn't enough for...

Water Changes and Nitrate by David J. Braunegg
My ammonia and nitrites test out at zero, so my bio-wheel biological filter seems to be working well. I'd like to figure out how often to perform partial water replacements based on the nitrate levels. At what level of nitrate should I do a water change, and what level should I try to bring...

I saw a beautiful red betta in the pet store yesterday and brought him home. He was in tiny cup (less than 8 oz.)! I immediately put in him in a half-gallon clear glass jar filled with some bottled drinking water, and added some aquarium salt (equivalent to 1/2 tsp./gallon) and AquaSafe (1/4 tsp.)....
