    Just Cause I'm Proud...

    So I compete with my dogs in a variety of sports. My youngest dog is a spazz who isn't quite ready yet and my old man is Very Retired, but my middle girl, the vizsla, is just an absolute dream of a sporting dog. By the time she was 18 months, we had managed her conformation championship (my...

    Best Medicine For Fin Rot?

    One of my guppies had a bit of a torn tail which I assumed was just because he'd caught it on something. I was dealing with an annoying algae bloom last week (my lights were on way too long during the day, it was wreaking havoc) and realised that he and another one of my pretty, flowy-tailed...

    Guppy Colours

    I finally decided to add a bunch of female guppies to my community tank. I'm not super concerned about being overrun by fry because they're currently all in with my rather voracious yoyo loaches, but I am going to be moving 4 or 5 of the guppies (probably 1-2 males and 3 females) over to my...

    10 Gallon Tank Stocking Help

    So I have a little 10g aquarium in my classroom at school. I have had guppies in it (4 males) and a yoyo loach. Everyone is currently in my home 30g tank. The guppies will probably return to school at the end of March break on Monday, although I'm still debating this as I love having them in the...

    Hyperactive Loach?

    It's my first time owning loaches and I must admit I adore them. I was wondering, though, are anyone else's loaches hyperactive? Gary, my original loach has grown immensely in the few months I've had him. He was active when he was a small thing in the 10g murdering snails for me, but now that...

    Shrimp Safe Tank Mates

    I've heard of a few people losing shrimp as fish snacks. I would like to have a few shrimp in my school fish tank with the guppies, but I'd rather if they don't get eaten. Are guppies and shrimp a good combo? Should I try something else?

    My 30g Is Now Complete!

    Due to some unfortunate circumstances, ie losing heat to the building at school nd projected -15C temperatures tonight, I precipitated the move of the residents if my 10g classroom aquarium to my 30g community tank. Some will return in a few weeks after march break when my classroom is not an...

    Help Tank Stand Options

    so we got 2 aquariums from someone, a 30g and a 75g. Neither came with stands. The 30g is taken care of, but I'm a bit at a loss what to put the 75g on short of buying a stand, which isn't a super affordable option right now. Every piece of furniture we own that is burly enough to take the...

    Question Aggressive Platy?

    In order to avoid endless fry, I decided to get all same sex platies. I ended up with all males (5). They're in a large tank and have plenty of space and since I have all male guppies in another tank and 0 problems, I just didn't think it would be an issue. However one of my platies is being a...

    Aquarium Size For Yoyo Loach

    So I went into a petshop the other day to get something to get rid of snails and they suggested a yoyo loack with the caveat that it'd get too big for my classroom aquarium, but that I could "bring him back". I wasn't super concerned since we were getting a new, larger tank for home (30g) and I...

    Hi, I'm New!

    Hi, I'm Margaux and I'm new to fish hobby. I research fairly obsessively and am lucky enough to have a mentor who I know through my other hobby, dog training and showing, who is helping me out with the basics. I started out with a 10g someone gave me for my grade 4 classroom with a couple of...
