    Tropical Fish Diseases
    I noticed yesterday that one of my keyhole Cichlids was lethargic and sitting alot near some bog wood. It was quite darkly coloured and had turned red near the base of its pectoral fin. As a precaution I set up a quarantine tank (only a small Fluval edge I am afraid) and have moved it into...

About a week ago, I transferred him to a new 2.5 gallon Mini bow with a filter, heater, thermometer, gravel, cave, silk plant, and a gravel siphon. It's at 80º F. The hood has a 15 watt incandescent...
  8. Lethargic paradise fish

    Hi, I've got a great little paradise fish called Garfield (because of the orange stripes). He lives in a 5L (1.5G) bow with two plants, one in a pot and one on driftwood. I've since found out this bowl is on the small side, but he was happy enough there. I change 50% of the water once a week...
  9. Pygmy Cories lethargic since introduced Endlers

    Hi, I have a relatively new aquarium (35l, planted aquarium, 2 1/2 months old, 20% water change once a week). In mid February we introduced 5 pygmy cories (not sure of sex, think 3 females and 2 males), and they were fantastic. Swimming all over the tank, playing together, and vacuuming the...
