  1. Small Eggy Smell In Tank

    Betta Fish Care
    A couple of months back, I had a similar issue take place for my two past bettas, Atlas and Donny but I never realized the smell until it was too late and they passed away from some fungus. I recently placed my fish, Cleo, into an aqueon 2.5-gallon tank and lately (from my paranoia) I smell...
  2. Does anyone have experience with Silicone plants

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So I bought a Silicone plant online, and for the passed few days I'm been soaking it in hot water, in hopes to get rid of the silicone smell. I've even soaked it in vinegar. Does anyone have experience with silicone plants? Will the smell be harmful? I want to be absolutely sure before I put...
  3. Silicone plants

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So I bought a silicone plant online, for an aquarium. When I got it, it has that siliconey smell. I soaked it in hot water for a few hours, and even soaked it in some vinegar, but the smell is still there. Is it okay to put in the tank? Will the smell be harmful?
  4. Nerite snail folded himself in half...?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Vern's been chugging around the bottom of the tank for the past couple days, but then yesterday I found him upside down on the bottom. I turned him over and he crawled off, seeming fine. then this morning he was on his shell again. I turned him over. He latched onto a marble and perched there...
  5. Strong Soil-Scented Water

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So, maybe two days ago, I started noticing how Draka's water started smelling a little like garden soil. I didn't think much of it, as everything in her tank looks fine (apart from the white-ish fluff that I figured out was harmless, but I'm still working on getting rid of). Then, maybe a day...

    Okay, so I got my fish I few days ago and when I opened the bad of pebbles I got it smelt kinda funny so I rinsed them and then put them in the tank. It has been about two days and now the whole tank smells like the pebbles did. Should I be concerned for my fish?
  7. To anyone with Aqueon Mini Bow Aquariums or Aqueon filters

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    My new Aqueon Mini Bow Aquarium is all set up and has been running for about a day. The filter seems to have an odd wet dog/sulfur-like smell. Is it normal for this filter to smell this way? My fish is not in the tank: just rocks, a heater, water conditioner, and a couple of decorations.
  8. New Tank - Weird smell?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I set up my new Aqueon 2.5 gallon tank today. The heater and filter are on. Shortly after I got everything set up I started to notice a weird musty/rotten egg smell. Could it just be from the gravel? I added water conditioner/dechlorinator, but the other tank I have doesn't smell like this at...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi all, I have had my little guy Sunshine for about 2 months now, this is my first post. I have become quite nervous over the past week, the water in his tank has developed a mouldy smell. I know the water itself smells because it smelled in a clean cup when I was changing his water last...
