I wanted to say that everyone did a great job on the online Extravaganza! The speakers were awesome as always and I enjoyed the vendor promos and interviews as well.

Congratulations to the fish show winners also!

Re: Air pump

Ernie, if you are considering getting an air pump from Jehmco I highly recommend calling them and talk to John as he can give you the correct air pump to use as well as the size of the PVC you will be running in your fish room. Before calling him though you will need to know the height of your tanks...

Re: PLEASE HELP

No problem!

A nitrate level of zero usually means the tank isn't fully cycled.

What test kit are you using and are you sure it is within the expiration date?

It's difficult to see if the redness around the pectoral fin is just redness or a growth, can you tell which it is?

Re: Are cichlids known to be jumper?

Yes! The fish will chase each other the length of the tank and the fish being chased will often jump to escape.

Re: Cockatoo is lethargic, not eating, hanging out on side of tank, looks skinny... I have attached a pic.

Need more details to help you.

How long has the tank been set up and how long have you had this fish?

Post aquarium test results for pH, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.

What are you feeding?

Any other tank mates? Do they also have similar symptoms?

Re: Please help!!!

Well it would be helpful to have the proper test kits if you want to know your water parameters especially if you are a new hobbyist or your tap water fluctuates throughout the year. How many fish are in this tank, how large are they and what species are you stocking? It is possible as the fish matu...

Re: Please help!!!

Sorry to hear of your loss! You should have a reading of zero ammonia, zero nitrite and some level of nitrate over zero in a cycled tank. Do you only have the ammonia test kit and if so, what was the PPM reading you got? How much water do you change weekly and do you use a water conditioner that tre...

Pool filter sand is a cheaper option than aquarium sand though it usually only comes in white, off-white or tan colors depending on where you live.
