The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS.

      i have a 10 gallon tank with 3golden wonder killifish, 5 bumblebee gobies, and 6 dwarf puffers, 3of the dwarf puffers i got today and they are very thin, im using api general cure and when i read the directions, it said add in one packet per 10 gallons, wait 48 hours then add in more, but does it mean add in more without removing the rest so id have 2 packets in? Thanks

      This pet store, though extremely good, has a high amount of livestock because people buy products online, but only buy livestock in person and, as such, they might not have noted they weren’t eating, I mean the pufferfish poop isn’t white or stringy so idk, I’m sure general cure won’t harm them though

      The medications degrades over time, therefore, you add in the same dosage after 48 hours in order to maintain the correct dosage of the medication. (In this instance it's the metronidazole that degrades.) What I do in this instance and do a 25%-50% water change on day 3, add in water conditioner for the new water, wait 1-2 hours (the longer the better), and then add in the full dosage of the medication. So it looks like this:

      day 1 - api general full dosage
      day 2
      day 3 - 25%-50% water change, add water conditioner, wait 1-2 hours, add in api general cure full dosage
      day 4
      day 5 - repeat day 3 instructions
