Does he look like he has ascites? Or is he just chunky? Not sure if the dark is normal or not. I haven't had a good look at him. Had him for 3 months and he still hardly ever comes out from the back of the tank behind his log. Now occasionally he is up on the wood or on the back wall so we snuck these photos just to check on him and saw his belly and unsure if he is ok ..read more

Hello, my poor Bristlenose Pleco is bloated and has a prolapsed anus. Before I do an epsom salt bath, I wanted to make sure it’s 100% OK for Plecos. He’s not eating so I don’t think peas or epsom salt infused food will work. Has anyone had experience with prolapse and did your fish make it? link to photos ..read more

Hey everyone Not entirely sure if this is the right place for this question. I wanted to ask members if they use Almond leaves to improve water quality (the package claims to have beneficial ingredients that help)? Also do you use them for pleco and shrimp food as well as water quality? Would you soak the leaves in a bucket of water in the sun prior to adding to your aquarium or just add them straight in? If they are useful for water quality should you remove carbon? Some websites... Indian Almond Leaves ..read more

Hi there. My sister and I rescued a Pleco from our friend. He's been re-homed due to people not understanding how large common Plecos get. We don't know anything about fish but are determined to do right by this little guy. We've done a bunch of research on him and we know he'll need a larger tank but for right now we've used part of our tax returns to set him up with a 75 gallon home, it's the best we can do on short notice. I need help identifying what's wrong with Hank. He has what I... Rescue pleco. New to fishkeeping and need help identifying aliments ..read more
