    Help New Fish, Sick Fish And General Cure

I just said 20 bc glass cats need atleast a 20 gallon. All i have cycled is a 5 gallon that I use as a...

    Help New Fish, Sick Fish And General Cure

    Ive got an airstone up and running and the guppys love it! I just finished the water change. Did about 50% and am keeping the lights off so they can relax. I can already see the rest of the glass cat crew and my honey g swimming around the tank! All seems to be calm at the moment. Thank you...

    Help New Fish, Sick Fish And General Cure

    A week ago today I brought home 4 glasscats and when I transferred them into the community tank I noticed one lost half of his antennae. Looked this up and found sometimes it happens (due to a number of reasons) and they will *hopefully* grow back. The next day all of my fish are acting weird...

    What's Up With Shy Guy's Fin?

    I can do that! He will spend a little vacay in the nursery. Hopefully the fry don't mind (5 are 1 month and 2 are 4 days old). Most are big enough he won't eat them I just hope they dont pick on him too. I was thinking about just transferring the 5 bigger fry to the 29g. Do you think that would...

    What's Up With Shy Guy's Fin?

    That is what I was afraid of. Poor Shy. From what i have observed everyone is really easy going. Sometimes the 3 adult female guppies get sassy with eachother, I just added a male but he's still kindof young. I've never seen anyone go after him. I feel so bad. I have him, adult platy, 2 platy...

    Hi all! Just sat down to visit with the fish babes and noticed my calico molly Shy guy's right fin looks odd. Way smaller than his left and shrivelly. Any help on what this could be? Treatment? I tried to take a picture the best I could. Thanks for your help!

    Can I Make My Fry Feel Safer In The Breeding Trap?

    I wasn't so sure on jumping into plants because I wanted to focus on getting my tank cycled and then my fish acclimated but my lfs owner gave me some bunches of Water Sprite and it just floats around on the top and is super low maintenance. I've had a couple batches of fry and they LOVE the...

    Help Water Sprite Browning?

    Anyone out there who can help me? I don't want to lose my plants! Are they just having a moment? Do I trim the root? Are they done for? I really dont want to keep a dead plant in the tank, bur if I can save them that would be ideal.

    Catching Guppy Fry

    Hi! Congrats on the babies!!I recently had my first experience with fishing fry out of my 29g and into my 5g nursery. I put in a floating plant meant for fry to hide in and filled a cup with water from the tank and waited for them to hid near the surface. Then I used my small net to get them...
