    My deformed swordtail!

    I went to pets at home a few weeks ago, it's the type of pet shop that you see sick fish constantly and they either don't know they're sick or don't care, with the odd dead one floating about. I don't usually buy fish from there for those reasons, but I was having a look at the swordtails, and...

    Thanks :) I hope so too, though I'm very doubtful as she seems to be getting worse by the day

    Mystery problem - please help :(

    It's growing up over her eye, or beginning to, and it's spreading all over her face. She's just the same as yesterday unfortunately. I have a breeder box the floating ones, my only problem with that is she is 3 1/2 inches long, last time I measured her an she would have problems turning around...

    Also to say about you DG, sounds a similar situation with not knowing how to treat, I hope you find a way of helping him and he doesn't deteriorate :)

    Mystery problem - please help :(

    Money is an issue to an extent, I will go to pets at home tomorrow and see what I can find filter wise to fit in the tank, it's so small, I will need to find a small heater too I might already have one though. I don't feel comfortable euthanising her, I ask myself whether she has any hope of...

    Mystery problem - please help :(

    It is bothering her, very much so. Her face has become distorted and very white, it looks like she has blisters on her face, I don't know how better to describe it. I don't like euthanasia either, I'm sat here watching her trying to decide what is best to do, I've spent a lot of time and money...

    Mystery problem - please help :(

    I really need some help deciding what to do. This Molly is still the same, her face healed over white, and now looks like it is blistering, she is being picked on constantly by the other fish, and is staying in one place, her body is bent and head sloping down and she's breathing heavily. She's...

    Zodiac loach

    He does chase them all over, up to about half way up the tank, so say at feeding time, the fish are always being chased away and I'm noticing it more and more as time goes on..so he's now doing it at any time basically. I think I should rehome him - sad but he's gonna have to go I think

    Zodiac loach

    I have a zodiac loach in my 39g community tank, he was given to me by the LFS as a mistake (should have been a zebra loach) he gets on really well with the loaches and seems happy but he guards the whole bottom of the tank as his and will only allow the loaches to swim by the bottom. I regally...

    Plant/lighting

    Co2 isn't an option at the moment as I can't afford it, excel, is that available in the uk or is it best to get it online? I'm happy with the bulbs I have now, I may decide to change them further down the line but not yet. Thanks for the help!

    Mystery problem - please help :(

    Yes that's right sorry the scales raised, fell off and have left this, and it's only on the right side of her face. Yep also to the salt it's aquarium salt I got from my LFS. I tried treating with internal bacterial meds, it made no difference. Thanks for your help

    Plant/lighting

    Apologies if this is in the wrong section. I have a 39 us gallon planted tank, I use flora base and I have two 39w t5 max light bulbs which are on around 10 hours a day. I've just added some new plants, but my ultimate question is what kind of lighting is this? Med/high? Am I right in working...

    Mystery problem - please help :(

    Update; I've been treating with melafix, and salt, her face looks as though its trying to heal but it's becoming very white and lumpy, with a red undertone to it, I can't get great photos but I have a few. Her appetite is brilliant and she's very active, like the lethargy I mentioned before has...

    Is it just me?

    I'm glad I'm not the only one, and I've yet to experience one leaving the nest, my daughters only 2 1/2, she talks to the fish as well :)

    Is it just me?

    I quite often find myself talking to my fish like I do my daughter, dog and cats, I find I get funny looks like I'm crazy, I wondered if I was the only one who ever does it??!

    Mystery problem - please help :(

    Thanks for replying, no it's not fuzzy it looks as though the scales are falling off and white scar tissue is underneath, it doesn't look infected. She didn't injure herself as farad I know, the scales started raising and falling off its been on going for a few weeks and I've tried treating and...
