dead fish

  1. Penn Plax Cascade canister filter = dead fish?

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I cleaned out my tank and pruned back some of the plants, sucked the gravel, and changed the HOB filter elements. Tank also has an undergravel filter. A pair of discus in the tank spawned (on the heater which obviously was not a good choice) the next day, so things must not have been too "off"...

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium

    Tropical Fish Diseases
    Hi everyone, this is my first time posting but I've been a long time lurker. I've set up a heavily planted 10 gallon aquarium. I used to have 3 kuhli loaches and 6 pearl danios in it, but when I added a dozen sakura cherry shrimp to it, the danios would aggressively tear at any of the shrimp...

    Tropical Fish Diseases
    I have a 30 gallon set up that has been going for a little over a year. Things have been going well recently except a few fish have come down with the same symptoms...

  5. Tank Extinction and Current "Disease"

    Livebearers
    About 2 years ago, the tank I have labled as saltwater was freshwater and had started with barbs. The barbs weren't working for us, so we waited a little longer and then bought 3 mollies, 1 male (seemingly a cremecicle lyretail, according to petsmart), and 2 females (a black one and a sliver and...
  6. Everything Dying in Biocube

    Beginner Saltwater Aquariums
    I have a 29 gallon Oceonic Biocube that seems to be a death trap. When the Scooter Blenny died I was thinking starvation, then I fought a Mantis Shrimp for the remains of a healthy Tailspot. At that point I believed the Mantis was the problem so he was removed. Within days the Saddleback...

  8. New Tank - Fish Dying

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    Hello all, Brand new to this forum, glad to find it. I've had a Betta for a while now in a 1 gallon tank, I bought him at a Petsmart and upon doing a bit of research I found a 1 gallon was WAY too small for him. We'd been talking about getting a 'real' tank, so Friday night we went to an...

  11. My filter is making SO MUCH noise; one fish died?! HELP PLEASE

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I'm super busy tonight and I came home from school to a dead Australian Rainbowfish and a really loud filter. I changed my filter and added more water into the tank but this didn't solve anything. The biowheel seemed to be moving somewhat slow. I took a cup and scooped water and poured it into...
  12. Dying Fish...

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I have a month old aquarium, so I guess you could say it is still a "new" tank. It's a three gallon tank. I originally tried to start off with some easy fish because I am new to the fishkeeping hobby. I got two glofish and a dalmation molly. The molly had babies, but I got rid of all of them as...

    Cichlids
    It's obviously too late for this to help due to the fact that I woke up this morning and my green terror that I purchased on thursday was already dead. I'm trying to figure out why it died so I don't go throwing another $20 down the toilet...literally. I have a 45 gallon hex tank housing a very...
