my new crowntail has what looks like tiny little worms or similar on him. I thought they were tiny bubbles at first, but noticed they are tiny short stringie white things! Is this white spot or some sort of parasite? Which medication should I be using?
He is very healthy, flaring and eating, so whatever it is doesn't seem to be bothering him just yet...!
I have this cute little air pump here doing nothing, so am going to set up a sponge filter in my betta tank (which is minus a betta at the moment!). Just wondering if anyone knows whether it will be gutsy enough to run a sponge filter with, or whether I am better off getting rid of it and getting something more powerful? They only cost $5 to buy on the net so I can't imagine its very strong... (not sure how much is enough!)?
ok, I don't know if my betta ate it, or he just left it somewhere, but my albino cory is minus one eye, and just has the .. cavity there.. its like something out of a horror film!
what happened to my lil man!
and you turned it off for a few hours a day (ie when in the lounge room trying to watch a movie!) would it be a problem? or do they need to be on 24/7 ? I want to put one in my betta tank in the lounge room to ease how many water changes I'm doing, but the noise is the problem! I could leave it on all day from 6am till about 7pm... then would want to turn it off for a bit.. if it isn't possible, i just wont get one, or consider moving the tank :-0
Big thanks to Calla who gave me my old tank back, this is it so far.
Just wondering what anyone suggest in terms of more decoration/ornaments/plants etc.. and stocking suggestions.
I was given some free albino convicts (in pic) however I don't really want them long term.. will give away to someone who wants them -they will grow too big for this tank anyway! They are too aggressive to put anything else in there with them.
I want something with a fair bit of colour in there.. This tank is in my office -which doubles as my room away from the world to do meditation and relax.. so I want something very colourful and pretty!
Any ideas (or fish available for sale) let me know!
