    Hello: I have a betta fish that I have absolutely no idea why it dropped dead. I need to disinfect the fish tank and then decide what other fish to put in. I have heard that people are using bleach for disinfection. What will be the ratio of bleach to be mix with water to get the best result but...

    Hi guys - my betta Levi recently passed away about 2 days after I noticed him pineconing. I now have a tank filled solely with live plants which I’d like to move to my goldfish aquarium, so that I can break down Levi’s tank and reduce the number of tanks in the house. Being that I don’t know...

    Hi everyone. Last night one of my Bettas died of fin rot. I got him from Petsmart last month. The fin rot worsened in this last week despite increasing water changes and using medication. Once the rot got to his body, he was done for. I believe the reason for this was because the Betta I had...

    I have a betta with a big rock piece (no rough edges), a few silk plants, and a betta hammock. He is currently dealing with velvet, so I'm going to quarantine him today. How do I disinfect his tank and decor safely? I know you can't use soap, so how do I make sure the medication and disease...

    Hi all, I am finally finished my "betta break" and ready to get a new betta (mine passed in the spring and it upset me quite a bit so I haven't had one since). Last weekend, I won a used glass 5 gallon aquarium in an auction and I am just wondering how I can disinfect it before introducing a...

    I currently have a male betta in a 1.5 gallon tank that stays roughly between 75-80 degrees with no filter or air stone. I use Zoo Med Betta H2O Conditioner and feed him two Aqueon Betta Food pellets daily, making sure he eats them instead of letting them fall to the bottom. These conditions...

    Hi. I had to euthanize my Asta due to suffering from presumed Mycobacteria infection. I'm pretty broken up about it. Now to the question of sanitization. I'm aware of how difficult it is to kill Mycobacteria. Not only does it sporelate, it has a waxy cell wall. I have googled ways to sterilize...

    My two and a half year old betta died last night of what I assume was Dropsy. My husband had been taking care of him for the past nine months while I was abroad and he had treated him with Maracyn Two once before, and it saved him, but two days ago he got sick again rather suddenly and we...

    So my fish... up and died, and I can't figure out why, but if I ever get another fish I DEFINITELY don't want that one to catch whatever he had. So that means everything I plan on using again has to be disinfected, but I don't know how to do that safely, or if I have to disinfect some things...

    I have two filters that I need to disinfect. I am not sure how to go about this by using chemicals, without ruining them. I would like to make sure I get them completely clean before ever using them again. I also have a glass heater and a ceramic heater, some rocks, and a few silk betta plants...

    Hello. First of all, I'm new to this forum, and I hope this is in the right section. If not, then please excuse me! I want to disinfect both of my marimo. I've heard that a lot of people use PP, but I'm on a budget. I think I heard of disinfecting it with salt. I don't have any aquarium salt...
