Re: Figure 8 Puffer won't eat

can't say much without knowing the details, but getting rid of that ammonia is a MUST!
whatever is causing it could well be the root of the problem.

Re: Leopard frog tankmates?

you keep contradicting what you say. If you had done your research, you would know that a leopard frog needs a semi-aquatic environment, and that a 20g long tank is not nearly big enough to provide that. I am fully aware that leopard frogs are semi-aquatic, and am also aware that this is about fish...

Re: Leopard frog tankmates?

Thanks! I have plenty of experience with pets, and wasn’t planning on getting the frog any time soon, and have already done plenty of research towards the matter. The tank I’m getting is more than enough space for one frog. Anything I do when it comes to pets involves extensive research. I was just...

I'd further research the info in this link, but just wanted you to realize that there's more to keeping these animals than just expecting them to have any kind of life in a small tank full of water.

Re: Leopard frog tankmates?

I'd suggest that you get some valid advice from someone experienced with these amphibians as far as stocking, necessary space, territory, feeding, humidity levels, ventilation, temperatures, water quality, potential health problems................ Avoid the mistakes that you are making with your oth...

Re: My Green Terror Lost An Eye

This is a 60 gallon aquarium, but it is a balloon green terror, so has plenty of swimming room. Thanks, sorry I missed that in your opening post. I'd say that you have an overstocked tank full of aggressive fish. I just spent 5 minutes on "google" to determine that. There may be "plenty of swimming...

Re: My Green Terror Lost An Eye

How long does it take for a Jack or a Leporinus to bite out an eye, no time at all. If it's damage inflicted by other fish, it's not popeye. As I said before, a damaged fish will be picked on by the others. And the injury may lead to infection. For the sake of the fish, get it out of there. IFit's p...

Re: My Green Terror Lost An Eye

Any fish, especially ones that tend to be aggressive, may cause an injury.
After that, the aggressor or any of the other fish may pick at it relentlessly.
About all you can do at this point is quarantine the injured fish & treat with melafix or pimafix, or whatever else is appropriate.

Unfortunately, as I found room for a 10g I had tucked away, I had no time to set it up as the poor puffer has already passed on... :cry: Sorry you lost the puffer, but in the future, please don't allow a situation of harassment or any other stress affect the lives of your fish or pets.

Re: Puffer Upside Down

ammonia level is posted in original thread where? I don't think the 500g tank is over crowded with 5 fish and 2 eels I do. There's obviously something wrong, and as in almost all cases, it's probably water/toxin related. I see no reference to ammonia levels, and your nitrate level is off the chart!...

Re: Puffer Upside Down

tank is overcrowded.
copper may also be the issue. many puffers don't do well with chemical treatments.

Re: Tetras fighting each other

they are schooling fish and would probably do better with 5-6 of them.
what size tank?
what other fish are in it?
