could it possibly be it just caught its self on the wood. ?
keep a close eye on them,and see if there is any change
in their behaviour.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I would keep a watch on your angelfish and red-tailed black shark. They may just be harassing each other without you looking at them.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

i aint got my red tail shark anymore sold it lol. the info at the bottom has changed now but still got the angel fish in it. ill change it at some point

i was watching most of last nite and i didnt see anythin that i havent seen before. the angel fish follows the discuss around anyway and they get on fine.
just got home today from work and the mark has got bigger. my old man may think it could be some sort of fungus but ive never seen or herd of a fungus that is that fast in growing. im not realy sure wat to do casue if i take it out it will proberly die. plus my other tanks have mollys ready to give birth.

any1 have any sugestions
