    Endler fin nipping or fin rot?

    You wouldn’t recommend any medications or salt? Also, what does it seem like to you - fin rot or nipping?

    Endler fin nipping or fin rot?

    I hate to be that person to post this probably the millionth time but I’m just stumped after researching and watching my fish like a hawk. I have 3 male endlers livebearers currently in my 29 gal with neocaridina shrimp and nerite snails as the only current inhabitants. They are in a...

    Endler jumped out, what now?

    Well as I mentioned on my update post, the parameters are perfect (0, 0, 5) and there is a lid. The endler jumped out of an impossibly small gap. No clue why it would jump

    Endler jumped out, what now?

    Hey everyone, I felt like I should post an update. There was some noticeable endler aggression/chasing/dominance behavior (I've grown to accept it now) among the four over time but nothing too bad. They also ignored my shrimp which is great. The glass lid on my tank is pretty snug against the...

    Endler jumped out, what now?

    Here's an update: Thanks to Flyfisha and Turnkeyagenda24's insight, I decided to keep the two endlers and get two more. Everything's surprisingly gone well, no immediate aggression and they are all shoaling together, super cute! They haven't even bothered the shrimp so far. I also ditched the...

    Endler jumped out, what now?

    Thank you for giving your insight, definitely helped my understanding. Now that you mention it’s common behavior, maybe adding 2 more (bringing the number to 4) would be better? Can I add them to where they’re currently quarantined or should I wait now that they’ve established territory? Also...

    Endler jumped out, what now?

    Thank you so much for your detailed response. I definitely have learned my lesson, clearly just lowering the water line isn’t enough. To answer all of your statements (sorry this is long): I have them quarantined because I worry they may bring ich or other issues into my main tank’s water, even...

    Endler jumped out, what now?

    Thanks for your insight, had no idea the sponge filter was enough. I highly doubt these are true endlers as they were kept in a tank with guppies. The main tank is 29 gal and they were planned to be the first fish inhabitants (only 2 nerites and 5 neocaridina shrimp atm). I actually REALLY...

    Endler jumped out, what now?

    Yea I put the lid of the container on it but cracked a bit for air. Hope they don’t squeeze through the opening. If you can, could you share some insight on my other questions on the post- Should I wait before getting another one? Should I give up the idea of a third? If I do add a third, can...

    Endler jumped out, what now?

    I got 3 male endlers last week and quarantined (still am) them in a makeshift 13 gallon sterilite storage container, seeded sponge filter, heater, and a few large plastic decor (included floating plastic plants for cover). No lid, since in my mind having the 3 inches below the top of the...

    New endlers swimming in place, seem stressed

    If that’s the case, then I stressed them out. I have many artificial plants and rocks (in case they need meds) in their 10 gal QT. They seem to like the floating ones. They clearly still looked kinda stressed but aren’t doing that agitated swimming in place thing as much, but sometimes do a dart...

    New endlers swimming in place, seem stressed

    I bought 3 male endlers today who looked healthy and from an LFS that quarantines sick fish, and acclimated them to my tank water (floated them in the bag for a few hours and then slowly started adding water). I did a WC on my main tank to steal about 5 gallons of the old water to add to the QT...

    10 Gallon Tank Looking for advice after fish death

    Bettas come with a lot of diseases and genetic issues because of being so overbred/inbred for their tails and colors. And it’s all made worst by the cups they stay in for so long. Some fish are unfortunately genetically weak and there’s nothing we can do about it. There’s a possibility of some...
