    Sick Pleco?

    Thank you, appreciate the nudge. I think I'll give the pet store a call, and transport him there (that'll be interesting). And I wasn't aware of those other species that stay around 5". So thanks again!

    Sick Pleco?

    Hi all, We noticed this today, and have had him for over 2 years. I don't recall seeing him look this way before. I think he's just too large now for the 29 gallon tank in that he started from as a baby from the pet store. Roger shares the 29 gallon tank with 12 Red eye Tetras, 6 Lemon...

    Gourami: Male Or Female

    Thank you for that feedback. We've had them for several months and I've never witness any abnormal aggression towards one another, the tank is large enough that they pretty much established their territories on one side or the other. I appreciate you explaining that behavior and confirming...

    Gourami: Male Or Female

    Thank you, that's what I thought too. Perhaps what I saw as courting behavior was establishing dominance behavior.

    Gourami: Male Or Female

    Hi all, I feel silly asking this with all the information on here but I'm at an impasse. We have the two gourami's below, and thought we bought males. I'm not so sure now after observing what appeared to be breeding/courting behavior yesterday. Can anyone tell by these pics which is which.

    Learning About Tetras And Sharing My Knowledge

    Hi all, when Jason and I first set up our aquarium, you all were a huge help. Thank you! Long story short, the overall consensus was the largest school most appropriate for our tank was Red Eyed Tetras, RET's. A couple of times a lemon tetra would get thrown in by accident when we'd go to the...

    Red Eye Tetra Schooling Behavior

    Oh, wow! Very interesting. I'll need to look online at some pics to figure out which ones are male and which are females.

    Red Eye Tetra Schooling Behavior

    Hi all, we have 14 RET's in a 29 gallon tank (well, actually 13 as we just learned that one of them, a Lemon Tetra, was mistakenly put into the mix when we bought them). We first had 7, then added 7 more a week or so ago. There are about 4 who hang out alone, by itself, and/or hide and will...

    Red Eye Tetra...different Than The Others

    Once I took the I saw more yellow, but I would have sworn it was clear, lol! :-) Thank you, that's what we'll do. Would a 10 gallon tank be large enough for her and 5 others? We have a 10g tank that's currently empty. 3 different websites said something different... 10g, 15g and 20g as the...

    Red Eye Tetra...different Than The Others

    Oh nice, thank you! Since it's a tetra, should they all be ok together?

    Red Eye Tetra...different Than The Others

    Just over a week. I'll take another pic when I get home, hopefully I can get a good one! How does this one look?

    Red Eye Tetra...different Than The Others

    Omg! We thought we had 14 RET's, or at least that's what we thought we were buying. It's clear, not yellowish and seems like it's part of the school. What do you think it is? Thank you!

    Red Eye Tetra...different Than The Others

    I think this one is a RET, but it looks so different than all the others without the black stripe on the tail fin, and instead a black stripe down the bottom fin with a bit of yellow. Thank you!

    Red Eye Tetra's Losing Black Stripes

    Yes! I turned the lights on at 6:00am and fed them, and they had no black stripes and even the red rings around their eyes were faint. It was the first time I noticed it. Now I'll be curious to see if that's typical every morning.

    Red Eye Tetra's Losing Black Stripes

    Thank you. Yes, they're just fine now. It was so odd that within 2 hours their stripes were back. We only bought them a few weeks ago so I don't imagine they're very old.

    Red Eye Tetra's Losing Black Stripes

    Hi there! It's a 29 gallon tank and has a pleco and a khuli loach. We're going to move the pleco into a larger tank. The goldfish in the pic is no longer in this tank. Very interesting however, I was about to take a pic of the RET's and their black stripes are back. So weird, an hour and a half...

    Red Eye Tetra's Losing Black Stripes

    We have 7 RET's and I've noticed over the past few weeks their black stripe on their tail fin is fading. Only one hasn't. Their eyes don't seem as red either. The water has been tested, and is healthy. They are relatively new but seem to have adjusted to their new environment and seem healthy...

    My Tank Feels Like A Ghost Town

    We no longer have the goldfish, but this is what all they have to hide in and behind.
