PSA! The only time I’ve been misguided by Seriously Fish

My gorgeous goldeneye cichlid (nannacara anomala) pictured below was added to my 55g community tank after being rescued from the depths of my neglected quarantine tank. I had long assumed all of the fish within had died, which is why I waited months until I decided to tear it down. Lo and behold, as I was scooping dead plant gunk from the 2 inch tall, mulm infested water, my cichlid comes flopping out with it. I felt awful for my poor guy and also felt grateful now that | could give him the life he deserved: a large, planted, community paradise. I fell in love with his gorgeous color, confiden ..read more

What do you think is wrong with this discussion? We purchased it from a LFS and it looked like this when we got home. There has been no improvement nor decline but just curious what's wrong with it. We don't think it gill flukes since it eats well and doesn't seem to "itch" it.  ..read more

Nerite Snails are too effective!
Aquariumcoop Forum
by
10h ago
After i cleaned up the Algaepocolypse of Neglect there was still a bit of GSA hanging around, so i added 10 olive nerites to the tank since the ramshorn snails didn't seem to eat it.  They did such a good job on a big tank that they starved out the ramshorns! I've picked out a dozen dead big rhs in the last 2-3 days.  I didn't dose anything outside my regular fert schedule & my local water is extremely low on metals, so i doubt it's a toxicity issue. Plenty of calcium, etc. All the other flora/fauna are fine.  Still several small guys, so I'm hoping they make a mild comeback ..read more

Broken impeller shaft on Fluval 407
Aquariumcoop Forum
by
10h ago
I did a filter clean on my Fluval 407 tonight, and managed to snap the impeller shaft. Pretty low odds of it happening and I'm really surprised I managed it.  I tried another shaft from another filter I had, but didn't fit. I've since ordered another impeller assembly, but it won't arrive for a week. So I've put the sponges into bags and placed them into the tank. I've also put the media containers from the filter into the tank as well. I've setup a small internal filter in the tank with very limited sponge media inside, just to keep some water flowing in the tank until the new impeller a ..read more

Confused about minimum tank size
Aquariumcoop Forum
by
1d ago
So I want a short body flowerhorn. They get up to 8 inches. The general consensus with google searches/forums is that the minimum tank size is a 55. However, the minimum tank size for blood parrots and fancy goldfish is 29 gallons. Both of these fish are short bodied and max out at about 8 inches so I assume they have similar waste production as a short flowerhorn. The minimum tank size for a REGULAR flowerhorn (75g) is 4 times the length of the fish in length, and 1.5 times the length of the fish in width. A 29 gallon is about the same proportions for a short body, and 30Long is even larger p ..read more

Sick Mystery snail?
Aquariumcoop Forum

1d ago
Greetings fish friends,  One of mystery snails has been laying on the ground half out of her shell for the past few days. She's not dead- I've seen her extend her breathing tube out and will slightly pull into her shell if i reach in the tank.  I've had her a few months and she has been super active until recently. The mystery snails  have been doing some heavy breeding lately- i think she is the one who's laid 3 clutches in the past 3 weeks (two have hatched!).   Tank: - 20 gal planted (amazon frogbit/ floating water wisteria) a few hillstream loaches and a couple gup ..read more

Chili Rasboras, help please

I really love these guys.  I had ten in my planted tank that were doing quite well until the tank crashed and I lost them.  After doing a huge 95% water change and getting the tank stabilized, I tried to reintroduce 20 more.  But they just started disappearing, like half of them after the first day, another 5 the next day.. and so on.  I've got one hardy survivor now. The tank hovers around 7 to 7.5 pH (the water is hard with a lot of buffer).  There is a small UGF with a powerhead that gives circulation, but unless they are directly in the first part of the stream it ..read more
