My aquarium fish are not active and some are dying. Help?
Asked By l,Last Answer By Mr. Wizard At 2011.04,1 Answers

I tested the pH levels, nitrate, nitrite, Hardness, Alkalinity, and ammonia levels and all are normal. Some of my fish have died and the others are not active. They just stay in one spot and occasionally move around. I feed them twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening. Have any ideas why this is happening? Thanks.

What fish should I get for my 20 gallon aquarium?
Asked By Elenore Mari,Last Answer By Colby At 2011.04,1 Answers

I'm cycling a 20 gallon aquarium at the moment. Once it is done cycling, I'm planning to get 3 zebra danios, and 3 glofish. (They are the same fish, just the glofish's color is genetically altered, so they'll school). So, what fish you guys think would get along(and look good) with these fish without overstocking my tank? Thanks! All answers are loved!

Basics to beginning a fish aquarium?
Asked By Frawggy,Last Answer By Fallen At 2011.04,1 Answers

So as some of you've already heard and answered my earlier fish questions, here's the situation...

I only want a Betta fish. I'd give him a nice big tank all to him/herself I think it'd be nice a nice touch to have a mini aquarium on my desktop. I'm researching everything and have researched over and over the basics and the aquarium nitrogen cycle.... researched the facts on owing a betta fish thousands of times...
If I get a tank, it'd have to be around a 3.5 to 5 gallon tank. Correct me if I'm wrong, but these are the necesseties:
-3.5 or 5 gal tank
-Betta fish
-fish flakes AND bloodworms as treat
-API testing

Am I missing something? My brother had fish before but his filter was so noisy. Does anyone know of a fair-priced noiseless filter? And from everything here, cn you make an estimate of how much this will probably all cost? Easy 10 points :/?

Why do my fish keep dying ?
Asked By Sarah,Last Answer By catx At 2010.01,1 Answers

Hey guys.
Well i've had my fish tank for just about a month now. I was told to leave the tank for two days before adding fish, which i done. It's a twenty litre tank, i have gravel in it and a small plant (it's not real), which i rinsed properly before i put in the tank. I had five fish in the tank - three tetra's, a guppy and molly. They were all fine, but in the last two days the guppy and the molly have both died.
I've been changing the water once a week like i was told to, i've been taking out about a third of the water and replacing it. I've also been adding "water safe" to the tank to make sure there's nothing harmful in the water.
What could be wrong that's killing the fish ? I'm not sure if it's because of high levels on ammonia, or if it's something else.
Sorry, i know it's quite a lot to read, but if anyone can help it would be much appreciated :) xxx

Why do my fish keep dying off!?!?
Asked By maggie,Last Answer By Phansie Thirteen At 2011.04,1 Answers

I have a 10 gallon tank. (i have NEVER had this problem before.)
It has sand, a 2 live plants, some fake plants, a decoration, a filter and heater.
First time: I let it run for a day with some conditioner, and the next day i got fish. My issue, i was stupid and for some reason i bought fish.
I have another tank so i let the fish hang around in that one while the other one settled with my snails.
They all died the next day. Everything.
I took 50% of the water out, cleaned almost everything, and put it back with some aquarium salt. I let it run for 3 days, (pluss the week before that)
I took a sample down to my petstore, and they said the ammonia was sort of high. So i got a tester and 2 live plants that "eat" the ammonia.
I put the tester in for about an hour and checked it again, it said "SAFE"
not green at all. safe.
So, i put my fish in from the top tank.
Today? One died.
i have the sand that doesnt have any of that bad stuff in it to hurt the fish. So i don't think thats the issue.
I'm not sure if i should move my fish to the top tank or not.
Oh- and the fish are guppies. And aparently the store has had some issues with their guppies.
whats wrong?

HELP! my fish are dying!?
Asked By,Last Answer By ♣ALT At 2010.01,1 Answers

I just got home from being out of town for the weekend. I have a small tank with 4 fish a tetra, molly, platty and one other im not sure what kind. Usually when I leave I put a feeder in the bottom of the tank, its like a gel that puts food in the water i guess. Well I just got home and the platty was upside down gasping and the tatra is jumping around the molly is just laying on the bottom of the tank and the other one is moving really slow and has white fuzz on his face. They have a water fiter that pumps oxygen into the water as it cleans. What can I do now???

What would be a good starter fish for a 5 gallon aquarium?
Asked By -,Last Answer By lemonnpuff At 2010.01,1 Answers

I am disappointed about the fish I bought last week. I have a 5 gallon tank. I bought 3 dwarf gourami fish with the advice of a worker at a petstore. Sadly 1 is dead and 1 is about dead. I have one left. I am going to take him back since now I have heard that he will grow to big for this tank. Grrr I have read how to cycle my aquarium and plan on doing so for a few weeks. I don't want alot of fish but just a couple and I just want to know what I should get for this small aquarium? I like the tropical fish best. Should I add any salt to the aquarium when having these type of fish?
