    Strange Yellow Balls? Plant Seeds?

    I keep seeing these yellow balls on my substrate. I first thought it was out of the Colombo root tabs capsules that I buried because the Kribebsis has been digging. However, I keep seeing more of them. They also look too big to be from the capsules. Is there a possibility that they could be...

    Cardinal Tetra - Is This White Spot?

    I’ve owned these tetras for about six months. I posted a couple of months ago about this tetra that has a wonky shaped tail but never really worked out what is causing it. Tonight, I have noticed a white stripe on the same tetras head. Is this white spot? The fish seems to be swimming round as...

    Trouble Feeding Kribensis.

    Hi, Sorry if this is in the wrong section or has been discussed before. In one of my tanks I have a dozen dwarf neon rainbows, 5 otocinclus and a female Krib. I am having trouble feeding my krib. Whenever I feed flake, bloodworm, tubifex etc. it all gets devoured by the rainbows before it gets...

    What Variety Of Anubias Is This?

    I bought this anubias a few weeks ago. The people in the shop weren’t sure on the variety but thought it could be lanceolata or congensis. It’s the one with the two big flowers. Does anyone have any idea? Thanks.

    Green Algae And Diatoms At The Same Time.

    I seem to have green spot algae and diatoms at the same time. I am quite new to planted tanks. The thing that confuses me is that I thought that green algae was caused by too much light and diatoms were caused by too little light. However, I seem to be getting both at the same time. The diatoms...

    Dwarf Neon Rainbow Fish - Erratic, Skittish And Strange Behaviour.

    Yes it is. I tested that water last night before a 50% water change. PH is around 7.2 and nitrates were around 20. I find the strips hard to read with specific accuracy. PH is standard for what I get out the tap. We had family round on Saturday and around 8 people sat at a table not far from...

    Dwarf Neon Rainbow Fish - Erratic, Skittish And Strange Behaviour.

    Thanks. I have been using the fertiliser for about 6 weeks. I decided to temporarily stop using it and did a 50% water change. The strange, skittish behaviour is still going on. Could anything else be causing this?

    Dwarf Neon Rainbow Fish - Erratic, Skittish And Strange Behaviour.

    I have owned my 12 rainbows for about four months. They are usually very confident fish that even come to the front when they see you to take food. However, over that past few days they have been acting odd. They will stay in the same spot in a very tight shoal, occasionally darting from one end...

    Attempting To Breed Praecox Rainbow Fish. Does Inbreeding Exist In Fish? Is This The Correct Way?

    Thanks for the advice. Will definitely be trying this over the next few weeks. As for food, would this stuff be suitable for the first few weeks/months...

    Attempting To Breed Praecox Rainbow Fish. Does Inbreeding Exist In Fish? Is This The Correct Way?

    If I was to hatch the eggs through floating a Tupperware box in the tank, would it be safe to do this with the lid on the Tupperware box? I'm not sure how else the box would float. I would be taking the lid off at least once a day to feed them and change the water anyway. I'm not sure how else I...

    Attempting To Breed Praecox Rainbow Fish. Does Inbreeding Exist In Fish? Is This The Correct Way?

    That sounds amazing. How do you get the Tupperware container to float? Do you put a lid on it with air still in there or would this starve the water of oxygen? I’ve 4 male Praecox rainbows and 8 female rainbows in a tank trying to collect eggs from. However, there’s a female Krib in with...

    Attempting To Breed Praecox Rainbow Fish. Does Inbreeding Exist In Fish? Is This The Correct Way?

    I have kept fish for a long time but have never attempted to breed before. I am planning on attempting to breed my dwarf neon rainbow fish and currently have a spawning mop in the tank in the hope that I will collect some eggs. My first question is: I bought all the fish at the same time from...

    Are Kribensis Fry Easy To Re-home In The Uk?

    I've been keeping fish for about 7 years. However, I've never tried breeding fish and would like to try. I currently have a pair of kribs in separate tanks. I'm thinking of putting them together and attempting to breed them. My only concern that is if the spawn is successful then I will be stuck...

    Kribenses - Long Streak. Parasites? Should I Be Concerned?

    I’ve owned this female Krib for a few months. Tonight I noticed a long streak coming from her. I know that this can be a sign of parasites. Should I be concerned and should I do anything? It’s kind of white in areas but dark in other areas. Could anything else cause this? Other than that, she...

    Sick Cardinal Tetra? Terra Disease?

    The wonkiness seems to have faded ever so slightly. But he is definitely still wonky when compared to the others. I don't currently have any test strips. But I do weekly water changes at 50% and have a fluval 406 running on a 200 litre tank. I know that the ph coming from tap is somewhere...

    Best Budget Led Lights For A Planted Tank That Are Available In The Uk.

    Hi, I was just wondering what suggestions people have for budget LED lights that are sufficient for decent plant growth. I currently have two planted tanks running using Reasejoy LED lights that I bought from Amazon. The one I have in my 120cm tank seems very powerful and very suitable for...

    Sick Cardinal Tetra? Terra Disease?

    If you look closely at picture 3, you'l notice that it is in a wonky shape. It's probably not as obvious in the picture as in real life.

    Sick Cardinal Tetra? Terra Disease?

    One on my cardinals is looking wonky. Everyone including him looks healthy other than his wonky shaped body. I’ve owned these cardinals for about 4 months. I bought I dozen of them them and 3 died a few weeks after. Then another 3 died a few weeks after that. This is the only fish I don’t seem...
