Title: 200L fluvel community tank. × 7L beta tank + 44L breeding tank.
Post by: grandmst on March 03, 2014, 08:26:41 am
Hey guys and girls.

already have another tank thread on here but I might as well start again considering my tank situation changed a lot today.

200L

Nice :)
Is the plant (variegated) on the left of the bigger tank real? If so, take it out, pot it up and put it on a windowsill before it rots in the tank.....(dracanea - or similar spelling - I think).

Front left just behind the camper van, often sold as aquarium plants but they just like moist atmospheres will rot down in a tank

Others will confirm, but he may be a common or one of the other larger plecos in which case he'll outgrow your tank :(

I'd like to see a better pic, but he could well be a common - up to around 24" when adult, and they do grow quickly.......

Hey guys.

I recently got some danios and one this morning seems to have what I can describe as a fish bone sticking from the side of its mouth.

Also he looks like he can't close his mouth, you can just about see it if you soon into the picture, i'm not sure if I should catch him and gently remove whatever it is.

Danios are always up to something. I would leave it a while to see what happens before trying to remove it (I can't actually make anything out in the pic), as that can often end badly.

I think he has some sort of moth rot the poor bugger, I've isolated him with some plants to rest under, as he is not looking to great

Melafix and crushed garlic to stop secondary infection, it may clear up, especially if it's from fighting other danios.

Recent bought two Bala sharks or silver sharks. My plan is once they are bigger to get a dedicated tank for them and the plecs due to size.

More plants...is that a glass heater? If so it needs a guard in case he decides to cuddle it, which they tend to do.
You either have a giant tank, or a small man is trying to catch the fish........ ;) *grin*
