    2 HMPK's?

    Is there any chance that 2 female HMPK's from the same pond could coexist in the same 20 long? Or should I not even bother trying? Decently planted and dark with tannin.

    Defective White Clouds?

    A few months ago I got 12 White Cloud Mountain Minnows. 8 of them died, one after another (as in not at the same time), the same way. I'd see them start sinking when they weren't swimming, their back gets kind of an angle to it (normally a nice curve, but then their tail starts to droop down)...

    Dwarf gourami build yes/no?

    Here's what I'm thinking: 3 dwarf gourami (1m 2f) in my planted 20 long with female leopard endlers. I'm hoping they eat the fry... Is the grouping right? Are they ok solo? And if they don't end up liking it there, could they (it) move to my 29 with the male endlers wcmm and cory's? Side...

    Before I get a Gourami...

    I want to make sure it'll be ok even if the rest of my plan doesn't work. I have a 20 long that I put about 8 female endlers in. Those 8 have turned into about 20, so I want to put a fish in there that will eat the fry. I have my eye on an opaline gourami. Will an individual be ok in a 20...

    What type of betta loves eating fry?

    I separate my male endlers as they show their sex, but I have 3-4 females who have been impregnated, and they're demonstrating that they are capable of continuing to reproduce. I'm getting a new batch of fry every few weeks, and I'd like to bring the dynamic into balance. After reading up, I...

    Mail order betta needs help

    I got a betta from ebay on Wednesday, he'd been shipped on Monday. Put him in a 5 gal well cycled planted tank, he swam around, then just started trying different hiding places. I covered the sides of the tank and turned the light off. Its been three days now, and all he's doing is hiding...

    Crazy ecosystem idea...(?)

    I have two competing ideas for my next tank, someone please tell me if I'm just dreaming. Generic plan: 1" of topsoil, covered in 1" of coarse sand. Good surface area for microbes. Crazy plan: 1" topsoil, covered in 1-2" of .25 - .5" gravel. The size of the gravel will allow shrimp to live...

    Inducing birth in live-bearers?

    I have an Ender's Livebearer who's been pregnant for a few weeks. She's in a 5.5 gal with about 10 other immature Enders. She and maybe one other female are mature, the others are still less than 1". The last week or so she's been getting more reclusive, not really coming out for feeding...

    Endlers & WCMM fry?

    I've heard that most endlers won't eat their own young, but will they eat other fish fry? I have maturing endlers and some of the males are large enough that I'd like to take them out of their nursery tank and put them in my main tank, which has a few white cloud mountain minnows. However I...

    Question Fish floating heads up and dying one by one

    I got 12 white cloud mountain minnows yesterday. After 5-6 hours I noticed one staying near the surface, its tail would sink down, it would swim and right itself, and repeat. After a few hours it seemed to get stiffer. Eventually it started sinking like it was paralyzed, it would give a few...
