I've rescued a sick discus from...

    I have two male dwarf gouramis. One of them has reddish lacerations around his mouth and the other has scrapes on his body. The one with the lacerations around the mouth looks like it might have hole-in-the-head, but I don't know if that is possible for anabantoids. Both of them are swimming...

    Today I noticed one of my bala sharks isolating. His mouth is gone and there is an open sore where his mouth was. All the fish in my tank are 3 inches or smaller. The balas will be moving into my friends bigger tank when they get bigger. What can I do to help him? Is this gonna affect my other fish?

    I have a female "marigold metallic Blue Hybrid" Platy that I bought from a breeder 4 months ago. She is one of two and was possibly pregnant when I bought her (breeder was unsure and couldn't guarantee anything.) The past 2 days she has been staying at the bottom of the tank most of the day...

The next day the comet...

    I have about 14 black and dalmatian molly's (thanks to ten 1-2 month old fry). We just had a massive power out due to Hurricane Irene, and I had to evac for the day - I was able to get a battery air pump, so everyone made it out okay. However now today I notice white spots on a lot of my fish...

    I started my original posting under the Goldfish section before I realized there was a Diseases section, so here goes: I suspected ich in my goldfish tank (55g) three days ago and started them on Kordon's Rid Ich+ about two days ago (first treatment was Wednesday, 6/1). They've gone through two...

    Hey guys! I wrote a few days back about my first tank, a 10 gallon with two goldfish. So far, I upgraded my filter to a whisper ex20, which isn't exactly silent but aside from that a great filter. I did two water changes in the first two days, around 40%, because the water was really cloudy...

I have four...
