    Hello fellow fish and aquarium lovers! So in the past few months I've been in a horrible burntout, which does not excuse the fact that i have been neglecting my betta fish, but it does give the reason as to why. I will start off by saying that my betta lives in a fully cycled 5 gallon tank...

    The water is cycling now. This started because my daughter’s Betta was mean to her mystery snail. So things have…escalated. It’s a 10 gal tank.

    I've got an issue with finrot in my 12.5 for a while now. And it seemed to be in the mend in the first infected neon tetra who had it in his tail.

    I think I may have mistaken fin rot for coloring when I bought this little guy a week ago. It hasn’t worsened at all, but I’m not sure if it is fin rot. Could someone help me?

    I noticed that my otocinclus's sucker mouth seems to have algae or something stuck in it. There are just little green specks all over his mouth that I can see on him. Is this something that I need to worry about? If so, what should I be doing?
