    Annubia leaves turning brown?

    Hi all, does someone know what's causing my annubia leaves to turn brown? Tank temperature is 26 degrees C and I've never added fertiliser. Lights on about 8 hours a day. Thanks

    Bolivian ram compatibility?

    Thanks! Would you suggest a single male or female? I'd like a pair but I've read they don't always pair up so seemed less risky to just get one.

    Bolivian ram compatibility?

    Hi all, in my 23 gallon tank I currently have : 10 cardinal tetras 1 thick lip gourami 2 guppies I'd really like to buy a male Bolivian ram to complete my tank but I don't want to disrupt the peaceful community. Has anyone had any success housing a Bolivian ram with the above tank mates? I had...

    Frozen brine shrimp question

    Thanks! But my concern was that it was way too much and maybe just give a quarter of a cube?

    Frozen brine shrimp question

    Hi All, i have 10 cardinal tetras, 2 guppies and a thick lip gourami. I feed them half a frozen brine shrimp cube twice a week as part of my dry food rotation. My question is, is half a cube too much for the amount of fish I have? They seem to eat it all un about 5 minutes but the tetras bellies...

    GBR chasing cardinal tetras?

    23 gal. I ended up taking her back to my LFS as she started to bully my gourami and guppies today. I really liked her, was a tough call but everyone was really stressed and hiding. She just changed so suddenly which surprised me.

    GBR chasing cardinal tetras?

    Thanks all, yes she'd be about 2.5cm so i guess it could be a possibility. Do you know how long the behaviour could last?

    GBR chasing cardinal tetras?

    Oh I see thanks, but i thought it took about 6 months to reach maturity to lay eggs, she's only a few months old and still really small. It stresses me out when any of my fish are stressed. I do have lots of plants im caves and I'd say im under stocked for a 23 gal tank. Hopefully she calms down...

    GBR chasing cardinal tetras?

    Thanks John. No she's not doing that. And I don't think she's pregnant as she's only a couple of months old and she's the only GBR in my tank.

    GBR chasing cardinal tetras?

    Thanks. I tested my water and all seems normal. She's not gasping, just nibbling on the airstone, then goes and chases everyone. I have her a bit more good in case she was hungry but didn't help. I hope she calms down tomorrow, so strange to suddenly become aggressive after 2 months of being...

    GBR chasing cardinal tetras?

    Hi all, I have had a female GBR with 10 cardinal tertras for a couple of months now, and they have gotten along very well. But today I noticed the GBR chasing the cardinals around all day. Do you think something is wrong or that she is hungry and that's why? Should I take any action? She also...

(2) Currently have 1 gourami, 1 german blue ram, 2 guppies...

    Male or female Krib?

    Thanks all, yes i agree female as it has a very red belly that didn't show up in the photo and the males body look more torpedo shaped. The shop owner told me it was male though so i wasn't sure. I just have the one Krib with a female German blue ram and a thick lipped gourami. The GBR is half...

    Am I over stocked?

    Well I have noticed the new blue emperors chasing the cardinals around a bit actually, and my guppies have been hiding in the plants at the top of the tank. I hope I didn't screw up the peaceful community I had :(
