    Show off your fish tank!

    My 17 gallon. Thinking about doing a rescape since everything was just sort of tossed in originally. But totally overwhelmed by the thought of it.

    What is going on with this guppy?!?

    Someone on a local forum was giving away red mosaic guppy juveniles and I offered to take 8. After getting home, I realized she gave me way more than 8 (22!!!!) and along with the juveniles, she gave me some fry and this giant thing. I’m assuming it’s a female, but I’m not totally sure. I’ve...

    What kind of algae

    I have these little Pom poms of algae all over the seiryu stone in my tank. It isn’t on anything else. What kind of algae is it and is there an easy way to get rid of it? I honestly like the look of it, but it seems to be growing faster and faster lately and I want to know how to treat it before...

    Why are my puffer always hiding?

    I have pea puffers. When I first got them they loved bloodworms. They would chase them around on my tweezers. But lately they won’t come out when they see me and don’t seem to care if a bloodworm drops past them. I’ll have to try brine shrimp. Not sure where to get them. How do you store them...

    Why are my puffer always hiding?

    That’s how I used to feed them, but they don’t even come out for bloodworms on tweezers anymore. So they’re stuck eating whatever baby ramshorn and bladder snails I can pick out of my other tanks.

    Why are my puffer always hiding?

    Mine unfortunately never eat off the bottom, at least I’ve never seen it. I haven’t even considered adding shrimp to help clean up. Do the puffers not care about them? I had a large mystery snail in the tank and they at his antennas before I could remove him. So I’ve just assumed they’d eat any...

    Why are my puffer always hiding?

    Mine are both male as well, but they seem to hang out with each other a lot. I originally had three males in there, but they bullied the third one and never let him eat. I moved him to my community tank where he is happily living. What/how do you feed them? I can only feed mine snails now since...

    Why are my puffer always hiding?

    I’ve had two puffers in my sons tank for 3 months now. At first they would come out to eat when I would feed them. But now they are constantly hiding. My son doesn’t bother them, the tank has hiding spots, live plants, black background and lower light, but I’m not sure what else I can do. I’d...

    Is this honey gourami a female?

    I bought this honey gourami yesterday under the impression that she was a female. I already have a male, but he was looking lonely so I wanted him to have a mate. But over time this fish has darkened in color and I’m convinced anymore. this is my other honey gourami. I’m 99% sure he’s a male...

    Can you determine the sex of my puffers?

    Everything website I’ve read is a little misleading, some say females have more vibrant spots, while others say males do. I figured I’ll just post a photo of my three, let’s call them 1, 2, and 3 from left to right. 2 is definitely rounder, with more yellow. All three have some variation of eye...

    What happened to my plants!?!

    It’s on white most of the time, but he wanted the option to have colors. I told him leaving it on rainbow probably stresses his fish out, so he listens. There’s 2 java ferns, some pogostemon, an anubias, some valesneria, and now these crypts, but these are the only ones that have shown any...

    What happened to my plants!?!

    Thanks everyone. They’ve definitely “melted”. I purchased these as tiny baby plants from petco and put them in my main tank where they’ve been thriving. But I have a nice light, soil and dose with ferts regularly. This is my 4 year olds tank and he wanted “rainbow” lights so he picked a $15...

    What happened to my plants!?!

    Three days ago I put these crypts into my sons tank and they looked amazing, now they look like this. I was under the impression they didn’t need anything special as far as light or anything. they came out of my main tank where they were doing amazing. Do they not have enough substrate? Please help!

    Why do my shrimp hide endlessly?

    I second this. I started with 14 shrimp in my 17 gallon community tank with guppies, neons, embers, and cories and it would take me hours to find them. Now I have over 100 cherries visible at any time and they could care less about the fish.
