Red face Greetings!

Hello fellow fish fiends!
I'm fairly new to fish keeping, I have a 30l biorb for tropical fish.
I currently have 3 fish and a frog.
My frog however has a fungal infection in his leg and I have been treating him for a few days with little or no effect..
If anyone could help I'd be much abliged!

Aside from that, I am a female vehicle mechanic, I enjoy playing the guitar and gaming

Thanks!

Hi and welcome!
Guide to Starting a Freshwater Aquarium
Here is the beginners guide.
What kind of frog? African dwarf frog?
Some more details will help us help you.
What are the other fish?
What are your ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and pH?
Is the tank cycled?
How long has it been set up?
Can you post pictures of the frog?

http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...ml#post1774638
As for the ph and nitrite etc, I don,t know specifically, but I was told the nitrite was really high, so I have been using water treatment to push the cycle forward.
Please reply on the above thread if you can help
Thanks!

Just an update on the types of fish I have.
I currently have one asian glass catfish, one molly, and one black ghost knifefish.
If anyone has any advice in caring for these species please post
Thanks!

Ok. We have some big problems here. Glass cats are schoolers. They require large schools in order to feel safe and not stressed. They have been known to die of loneliness if kept alone. A school of glass cats needs a 30g minimum.
Mollies need a 20g long tank minimum.
Black ghost knives grow to be massive. Over a foot long. They need large tank ranging from 75g upwards. They are all wild caught and some can be hard to feed. I'm sorry to tell you that not one of your fish are suitable for your tank size. They all need to be rehomed or have their tank upgraded ASAP.
30L is 8 US gallons.

Hmmm. Ok well regarding the schooling catfish, I had read as much, but the shop attendant assured otherwise...
And i was also informed (as well as having read) that fish will only grow to certain sizes depending on the size of their environment?
A lot to think about!

Could you possibly list fish that are suitable for my 30l tank??
Thanks!

Trust me, I do now!
Sadly a little late for my froggy...
I'm even considering taking my current 3 fish back and doing a month cycle of the tank before putting any in...
Or is that too radical??
