    Okay, thanks for responding. I poked it some more. I'll change the water again when I get home. I do have some MTS in the tank. Maybe I didn't get enough of them. I could order some more. The film could be from the veggies I've been giving the snails as they were nibbling the plants. The readings from my last test were Ammonia 0, Nitrites 0, and Nitrates 20ppm. I just panicked because there is so much gas build-up. I've got a cup of duckweed coming in the mail. I hope it arrives soon. I'm still waiting for the other plants to process and ship from Sweet aquatics. I've been smelling the tank. It doesn't smell bad, I'll keep you posted

    That too bad...I would keep doing some water changes and add more stem and floating plants...along with some MTS and try to save it..its normal to have some bubble come from the substrate and not all bubble are bad either...its normal...the film may be normal organic substance too and the system needs more time to mature/balance itself....

    Hey, I just wanted to thank you for helping me out with my NPT. Sadly lots of gases built up I guess after my water change last night. I discovered whitish film in places on top of the substrate. When I started poking around, bubbles kept coming up. I can go poke some more and I know more will appear. I've poked so much, the water is now cloudy. So I guess I have to take it down after all. Thanks again though

    Silverfang sent me your way--could you please PLEASE read my post in the Disease section about my handsome man Grebby? He has dropsy, and I can't let him go easily. He's eating, his ammonia was a little high but is back to 0 now after a water change. He's such a good fish. Thank you.

    Hi, I have been referred to you to see if you have ever seen a white mass on a betta gill? I posted some pics in the section for emergency illness if you can take a look and let me know. Fish seems in good health other than that and I'm trying to find out if there is anything I can do to help him. Thanks so much in advance. Karendawne

    OFL, I need some wisdom based on experience. My Kessler has some ragged fins. He does not have any black or brown on the edges. actually they are white. I have never seen him bite them, but it seems he is as the ragged edges happened over night. I have quar. him in a small tank with salt. He looks good, is blowing bubbles.and eats well. Do you have any idea why or how to correct this?
