My fish hit its head on the tank and the skin is a bit falling off and under its white. Will it be okay?

I'm a bit worried. Will it heal back itself? Or do I have to give it any treatment? Anything natural, I have at home, if it needs treatment?

Rough White Buildup around my fish tank?

I had a beta fish for a couple of months, and every time I did a water change, rough white residue was on the lid and around it on my desk. Sadly he has passed away and the white rough residue is on my wall and every time i try to clean it, it comes back.  If anyone knows how to clean it properly or if you can tell what it is and how it happened as well as preventing it. Please comment.

I have a question about fish....I don't know if anyone can answer it though... I found a fish once while fishing in southern Indiana, it looked very similar to a pike, I was fishing with a dry fly on the top of the water, the fish went under it and sucked it in. Does anyone know what kind of fish it was. And I already know it wasn't a catfish.

Instructable wanted &quot;How to build a Fish Tank&quot;

I have been browsing through all the fish tank instructables and I thought that they were rather rubbish to be honest.... I want an instructable to build a decent tank in a rectangle shape with the dimensions of Height: 12" Length: 20" Depth:14" (Dimensions do not have to be followed but appreciated if they are and dimensions do not include lid space) If there is also any specific thicknesses needed for the tank to hold the capicity of water this would greatly appreciated if stated. I would also like the person who choses this project to use links to websites for the materials/tools (preferably English GBP currency) Any links to what types of fish are work well together would also be a bonus. Thanks in advance to anyone who will write the instructrable for this.

Fish Curry

Ingredients: Servings: 6-8 Units: US | Metric 2 lbs fish fillets (best with tilapia) 2 tablespoons garlic paste 2 inches gingerroot 5 teaspoons mustard seeds 4 bay leaves 1/2 tablespoon coriander powder 5 medium shallots or 2 medium onions 7 red chilies 1 tablespoon cumin seed 3 teaspoons turmeric powder 3 tablespoons salt 2 big tomatoes oil, to deep fry fish 3 cups water Directions: 1 In a grinder grind the onions, ginger, 2 bay leaves, red chili, mustard seeds, cumin seed all together. 2 Preserve some cut pieces 1 cup) of onion. 3 Cut small pieces of tomatoes. 4 Make small pieces of fish fillets, about 3 inches in length. 5 Clean them properly if you are using the whole fish and make it into small pieces. 6 Take a big plate, put the fish in it and sprinkle 2 teaspoon of salt, two teaspoon of turmeric powder and the garlic paste. 7 Mix all of them properly. 8 Allow to marinate for 1/2 hour. 9 Take a pan or a wok (preferable), heat it and put oil to deep fry the fish. 10 Once the oil is much hotter, fry the fish, 3-4 pieces at a time, 3-4 minutes on each side. 11 Keep all of them in a separate plate. 12 When all the pieces are fried, clean all the black residues from the oil in the wok with the spatula and put 2 tablespoon of fresh oil in the it. 13 Then put a pinch of cumin seed, a pinch of mustard seed, 2 red chili, 2 bay leaves, a pinch of aniseed (all together is called panch-phoran) and allow them to splutter. 14 Then put the cut onion pieces and allow it to just a little brown. 15 Then put all the ground paste,tomatoes,left over turmeric powder and salt to taste. 16 Keep stirring it until the paste becomes a little brown (it takes around 10 minutes). 17 You can also identify it by looking at the wok, that the paste will start leaving the oil and paste will now no more stick on the wok. 18 The paste is now perfectly fried. 19 Now pour 3 cups of water to it, or as much thick gravy you want. 20 Once the gravy comes to boil, start dropping the fried fish pieces and allow to boil for 15 minutes. 21 Switch off the gas. 22 Use coriander leaf for garnishing. 23 This dish should be served with fresh steamed rice and squeeze some lime some juice on top.

I have an injured goldfish, what happened, and how do I care for him? Answered

I have a single goldfish, around 4 1/2 inches long and two high ( including fins). He is in a five-gallon tank with a short, long fake rock and roman ruins, as well as a pipe leading up to the filter. These do make it a little cramped, but it doesn't seem too bad. I just noticed that he has scales sticking out of his side, which look like they're being pushed out by a translucent-ish shpere, which was large and round a little while ago, but now looks a little deflated, and almost clear in one spot. I just changed his filter, put in the proper amount of stress coat, and am planning to clean the tank shortly. What's going on, and how do I remedy it? It's pretty urgent, and any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
