I have a Nimbochromis venustus who has been bullied by another male. All because of a female livingstoni, which I thought was a male. Since then I have removed her from my aquarium. The nimbocromis had a mark which looked like something was under the scales. A few weeks later a red lump has appeared can anyone help with the diagnosis. Is this lymphocytosis ..read more

Apistogramma Trifasciata - Possible worms?

Hey guys. I haven't really posted anything, but I've recently bought a couple of Apistogramma Trifasciata, which have just spawned, and although I chose the healthiest in the store the male was pretty thin. I've been feeding them heavily for a couple of days now, and I can't help but fuss over his state. What possible signs of parasites can you see in this crappy, best-I-could-manage photo? It was taken just after he arrived, so he's fatter now, but honestly not a load. Is this regular... Apistogramma Trifasciata - Possible worms ..read more

Does this look inflamed. One side of the fish seems to have exposed red gills. Why does it look like the gill cover is deteriorating. Fish is acting normal. If an infection. can I use SeaChem MetroPlex. Options. Should I treat the hole 90 gallon tank. I noticed another Ellioti had a similar issue. Would a small seeded sponge filter work in a 9 gallon tank. Will the fish eat if I put a tank divider in and soak the food in the 90. I see people treat for 4 days doing a 50 % water...

My rainbow is in a 40 gallon with divider with a Nicaraguan cichlid. Rainbow was great this morning all colored up and active. I just checked on him and get ready to put him in the HRP 75 gallon when I noticed he wasn't really moving too much. Nicaraguan is fine and active. I gently tapped on glass and the rainbow swam but I noticed a mark the size of a nickel on his left side towards the rear of his body. Looks like a bruise or something. It's a bare...

Peacock female hurt her eye 1 week ago. She had a little white spot on eye, but eye was clear. Two days later, it got a little cloudy so I removed her to a Q tank. Question... Is this normal after an injury? Or is it getting infected? Complete eye lense is slightly cloudy, swollen, and now today, 3 days cloudy, she seems to have these little black spots/marks around outer ring of hurt eye. Is she healing, or is this getting worse? Not sure exactly what to do. I currently have her in salt... Eye Problem -suggestions ..read more
