Another ill female betta #2
Hi folks,

Recently lost a female betta, and now another is going the same way. Photos below.

She isn't eating, hiding or either laying.on the bottom or floating at the top. Shares her tank with tetra, shrimp, and ottos. 60litre planted tank, water parameters fine.

Any ideas? There isn't an open wound etc.

Thanks in advance

Dead female betta #3
My female betta has been very still for a few days now, not eating, and hiding etc. This afternoon I found her dead. She is housed with two other female bettas, and black.phantom Tetra, plus some algae eaters.

On fishing her out, I noticed a white lump on her her side that I hadn't seen earlier.

Has something bitten her or is it something to do with how she died?

Any advice welcome.

Thanks.

TEST KITS #4
Hi folks,

Just wondering what people are using for water testing. Currently use the API master test kit, and feel sometimes.the results aren't overly accurate (ran the same test 3 times with 3 separate results)

Suggestions welcome:)

Consistently high Nitrates #6
Hi folks,

I've a well planted, cycled tank. A mix of tetras, female bettas and ottos. I added ferts capsules and its caused a huge nitrate spike. I've carried out water changes and removed the capsules but cannot get the levels below 80ppm.

I know levels should be below 40ppm but is there allowance for the ferts?

I've not used the capsules before but tried them for some of my thick rooted plants.

I also dose Flourish excell and neutro T, which I was told to do in addition.

Guidance welcome and appreciated.

Re: Fish cycling cock-up! #7
Are you adding bacteria? I used seachem stability and it supported the system to cycle within a few days. I dosed it for 7 days. I now have two.well cycled tanks.. however like an idiot, I added the wrong ferts and now have a nice nitrate spike..

Good luck!

Re: Any advice welcome - Diatoms ir dying? #8
Hiya,

Thanks for the chart, really useful useful. Neutro T was recommended to me, but it doesn't have a list of what it has, so investigating that to figure out what's missing. I do use liquid CO2 and I have used a plant substrate.

My water parameters are fine, so presume diatoms are because the tank is still new..

Thanks again

Any advice welcome - Diatoms ir dying? #10
Hi folks,

I've got a month old tank, 60litre, running a Fluval U2 filter. It's a 6500 warmth LED, on around 10 hours per day

Ive a range of plants, but some really don't look too great. Unsure if it's Diatoms or the plants are dying . Main 3 I've issues with are

MICRANTHEMUM UMBROSUM - leaves browning
ECHINODORUS ATLANSBERG - leaves going almost paper thin
ALTERNANTHERA ROSAEFOLIA - rusty orange colour and slits in leaves.

For my 60L, I dose Neutro T and flourish excell daily. I've 6 Black Phantom Tetras, 2 female bettads and 2 albino corydoras.

Any advice welcome, please and thank you.
