I've been cycling my 4' tank for the past 6 weeks so not far off ready. So far my stock list is 2 Blood Parrots, a Rainbow Shark, a Pleco and a few Corydoras. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on any other fish I could add as dither fish?
Thanks in advance for any replies
I believe my BP Dewie is in trouble. Almost three weeks ago Dewie started to rearange the substrate in the tank and act as if it was going to lay eggs soon. I have seen this behavior before and thought nothing of it. The egg tube appeared normal and the behavoir looked as I had seen before. The problem is the eggs never came and now the tube looks like a clear pea size bubble. Any answers as to what maybe going on would be greatly appreciated.
I have an ich problem in my tank from Saturday and i think its is still present... I bought this medicine called "Rid-All anti-ich"
i did everything the bottle says and it said it "should have of killed the ich parasites within 24 hours and if ich is persistent then 3 days at most"
This is a really stupid question but Can ich be seen with the naked eye or do you need the aquarium light to see it??
i can only see the spots if my aquarium light is on is this normal??
i bought 4 tiny cichlid buddies for my parrots. I have 80 gall tank i have now 4 parrots and one ruby shark and one pleco.

I would like a little help deciding if my purchase of 2 sweet black baby blood parrots was a mistake , I really would like to keep them.
I was told that my 36x15x20 tank which is 47 gallon acrylic would be large enough for them as adults,
but after going online and reading posts on different web sites it seems that a 55 gallon is the smallest size you should have to house them. I would really like your help on this.
