My betta fish is not eating. I placed a holiday disk in his tank for food while we were away this weekend.. Just got home and the water was extremely cloudy


I hope you did a big water change right away. The very first thing to do, any time there is a problem with water for fish, is to change at least half of it right away. If you have dip strip tests, test some of the water you change to find out if any readings are too high, but do the change first. If you don't have tests, you should consider getting some, they are the only way to tell if the water has too much ammonia, nitrite or nitrate for fish safety.

Cloudy water often means a bacterial bloom has happened, which isn't always dangerous to the fish. But sometimes they can be the result of a rise in ammonia. All fish produce ammonia as part of their respiration and all organic waste, which is broken down by bacterial action, also produces some ammonia.

For the future, It is MUCH safer to simply not feed your fish if you are going away unless perhaps you are trying to raise valuable fry. But most tanks of fry would also probably survive if their tank is provided with large masses of live mosses and floating plants. These provide minute food resources, infusoria, bacteria, algaes, which fish can pick from the plants. Plants, of course, need enough light so they don't die off.

For sure, unfed fish will get hungry, but healthy fish will not starve to ***** in a short time. Most fish can do fine for a week and I leave mine for two and three weeks if I must and so far, nobody has died. During an emergency, my fish survived for over a month without any attention at all, far from ideal but it could not be avoided. Those fish were living in a heavily planted tank and the plants provided food resources. It also contained shrimp and live scuds the fish could eat, though they didn't eat them all.

Even an unplanted tank, if not over-stocked, should be ok, unfed, for 5-7 days, so long as the fish are all healthy and similarly sized. Tiny fish are likely to be eaten if their tank mates are big enough and hungry. If possible, put the tank lights on a timer so the day/night cycle continues while you are away. Full-time darkness won't kill them but is probably not much fun for them, either.

Fasting fish also helps avoid potentially serious water quality problems that uneaten food and fish wastes may cause in a surprisingly short time. Many keepers fast their fish routinely, one or two days a week, which is thought to mimic the erratic availability of food in the wild.

Having living plants in the tank is very useful; they use up ammonia and nitrates and provide interest, shelter and resting places for the fish. Water changes serve to keep all toxin levels at safe levels. Nitrate should not test over 50 ppm at most, 10-20 is best. Ammonia & nitrite should always be ZERO. If any levels are over these, big water changes are the only remedy.

Any fish's tank, including that of a Betta fish, should have a filter of some kind. If it does, changing 50% of the water weekly is what I have found works out for the best. Filters convert ammonia and nitrite to nitrate, the least toxic

Sadly, it's still popular to keep Betta fish in bowls without filters. It's a long way from ideal, but if water changes are done diligently, the fish may be ok, though it often ends up chopping a year or more from their life span. Without a filter, 50% of the water should be changed THREE times each week. That's a lot more changes than most advisory sites will say, but fresh, clean water is the single best friend any fish will ever have living in captivity. Make sure the fresh water's temp' is within a degree or two of the tank's temp' when you change it. Use a siphon or turkey baster to suck up fish waste from the bottom at least every other week, if not more often. Don't remove the fish when you do these maintenance tasks because that can be a lot more stressful than leaving it in.

Never feed Betta fish any more food than they can consume within a maximum of about ten minutes. Many of them tend to be very slow or picky eaters, so they need more time than most other fish species. Remove any uneaten food after a half an hour.

What order do I put replacement filter media into the frf-1919 aquarium filter?


The goal for the filter would be to keep the water pump clean, so normally you would place the mechanical filter media where the water enters the filter. The water should not be able to go around it, but instead have to pass through the media. Mechanical filtration pulls out pieces of things. If you accidentally get too much food in the tank, and it makes it to the filter, this is what you want to pull out and clean at the faucet. Remove the debris, run some tank water through it so you remove the chlorine, then put it back in the filter.
Carbon/charcoal and sometimes white rocks called zeolite will be doing your chemical filtration, removing heavy metals, and other chemicals, so they can go next. The biological filter media is what is most important. Have this media - a large amount of surface area that water moves through, but will not get clogged up - next to the pump part of your filter. NEVER change these. These are the home for your beneficial bacterial cultures. Detritus (decaying organic material, solid waste, uneaten food, dead plant matter) and liquid fish waste become toxic ammonia. These bacteria consume the ammonia and turn it into toxic nitrites. Another bacterial culture living in the same place turn toxic nitrites into nitrates. Nitrates are plant food, here comes your algae if you leave your lights on all day but don't have live plants in your tank. Nitrates gradually build over time, and fish gradually become accustomed to higher levels of nitrates. This is why we do Regular Partial water changes, to keep nitrate levels low. If you don't do Regular Partial water changes, and suddenly change a lot of water, or add a new fish that doesn't get the long period of time to acclimate to these higher levels, fish can get sick and some may die.
Biological filtration is the most important thing in your aquarium, second only to water. Know where your bacteria live and DO NOT clean it, replace it, dry it out, bleach it, wash it under tap water, and so on. Just leave it alone the same way you leave your fish alone.
Fish can survive just fine without mechanical and chemical filtration, so there is really no need to continue to use those in your aquarium, other than keeping your money in the pockets of the people who tell you that you have to have them and you have to replace them. Any company that tells you the biological filter media must be replaced is lying to you and I would urge you to never buy their products again.
A bulk amount of carbon and nylon mesh bags can be purchased from any decent pet store or supplier, as can foam that can be cut to fit into your particular filter. Personally, I recommend not bothering with either of these, and adding more biological filter media in the extra space you now have. You can never have too much beneficial bacterial in your tank.

Cloudy water that stinks


1st priory is to save the fish !! move them to a new container consisting of half old water and half new water (declorinated) along with a small air bubbler !! this should help your fish to recover (don't use soap to clean out container it is toxic to fish) moist table salt is best to use for a cleaning agent and rinse well b4 putting fish inside

then ck to see if your aquarium is pumping water thru the filter and falling back into tank ( replace all the water in the tank 1st with two rinses ) make needed repairs to pump and or filter assembly (New filter cartridge) new pump impellers and cartridges are available for purchase for your aquarium from vendors that sell aquariums and allways ck the outlet the pump is plugging in b4 blaming a pump fail with a known good table light set to "On" they do go off once and an a while
verify that water chemistry is ok b4 retuning fish to tank and observe fish for strange behavior for next several hours ( upside down swimming, laying sideways )

Hey Manni, Fish can be tricky critters to diagnose at the best of times- and online is harder by far because you cant really watch the fish.
Can you tell me a few details so I have a better idea of the situation? What kind of fish is it, how long has it been sitting at the bottom of the tank and are there other fish in the tank with it?
The first things I would check are the Ph. levels, the algae level, temperature and if you have a filter/aerator that it isn't clogged and is letting sufficient oxygen into the water. If all these things are ok, we need to take a closer look at the fish itself.

Aquarium water is cloudy


This can happen and will generally clear with time, if you are concerned do a water change. I find that this treatment is more hassle than its worth, if you have a suitable filter seachem denitrate is a good alternative, or he aquarium pure balls.

Does an aquarium filled with goldfish need a filter?


Generally speaking, goldfish can survive in a fish bowl orsmall tank without a filter. However, ifyou have multiple goldfish in one tank, they would probably live longer andhealthier lives with a filter. Filtersare beneficial because they clean the water and keep it balanced. The fresher the water is, the healthier yourfish.b>

What is the difference between a filter and a pump in a fish tank?


A filter maintains a natural environment that for fish thatbalances the good and bad bacteria in the tank. Additionally, a filter can remove toxins, chemicals and other unwantedmaterials from the water. The filterworks by taking water in from the tank and returning it clean.A pump is just a pump. It pumps air into the tank and creates bubbles, and sometimes a current. It does not clean the tank or balance thebacteria and PH like a filter does.

WORX WG303 CHAIN SAW : WHAT TYPE OF OIL DO I PUT IN THE RESERVOIR?


Use regular bar/chain oil available at home centers, hardware stores, and saw dealers. Don't run things like used motor oil or similar which tend to plug the tank filter. Good luck!
