    Molly is pregnant? Need advice

    Harsh?  You think?  Thanks for noticing Vin!  But I did ask for advice, I didn't ask for people to be nice, just honest.  Although this website was to promote helping others, I'm not too sure that being so harsh has made me realize my mistakes.  I realized that prior to the insults.  First and...

    cleaning a 10 gallon

    thank you so much....I trust your word, honestly. It seems like most of the people working at the store are teenagers just looking for a job and they have all given me different advice. I didn't like the pH drops because it seems like all this time my fish have been fine. I did change the...

    cleaning a 10 gallon

    ok...I am getting some really mixed advice, but seem to trust you all more than my local aquarium store. I think they are giving me really bad advice, just to make me buy more **** when something goes wrong. They keep telling me I only need to change water every 3-4 weeks about 50%water change...

    Molly is pregnant? Need advice

    Like I said earlier omorrokh, I am new at this...I took the advice of the people at the aquarium store when we asked what we should get. We didn't go in there saying, "Hey, we want to breed fish, what can we buy?" I said, I want to get some good fish for my 3 year old, what do you recommend...

    Molly is pregnant? Need advice

    I went ahead and took her out of the net today, you should have seen her! she was like a "fish out of water" (forgive the pun) but she was so excited.... ;D The other fish were so happy to see her, she swam around like she had been gone, even though she could see every one, I know she is...

    can a fish NOT deliver fry?

    thanks guys...I think I will try taking her out today...I will let you know how things go. As of today, Saturday, she has still not had the fry and it has to have been at least 5 weeks now, I think too long, thanks, I'll keep you posted.

    Help with Mollie Fish !

    thanks 0morrokh...didn't know that...getting info from the local aquarium store about changing water every 3-4 weeks, but they are saying a 50 % at least water change...they never said anything about 20-25 % water change every week...YIKES...I wonder if that is why my molly hasn't delivered her...

    can a fish NOT deliver fry?

    ok, today...still no fry. She is digging at the bottom of the net like she wants to get out. I am thinking of letting her out, it has been almost 5 days now for her to be in the net and still no fry and it has been well over 5 weeks that she has been this big. I really think something is wrong...

    Plecostomus

    def. did NOT pay alot of money, maybe 5 bucks tops for the little guy, so not a zebra...people really pay that much for fish huh? like I said, this is for our little guy at home who is 3 so he can learn about the importance of a pet, but the more I learn the more I like it and am intersted in...

    Plecostomus

    similar but stripes not as big, of course it is a baby so they might get bigger...they stated it would only get to be about 4 inches so I am thinking clown...thanks again for all your help guys, I really appreciate it, cute pics!

    Plecostomus

    they said it was a clown...lord only knows, I am just going by what they are telling me, they could tell me it was a shark and I would believe them I am so new at this (ok, I wouldn't believe the shark business...but if they told me common or clown or whatever I believe anything...) I just...

    can a fish NOT deliver fry?

    Ok, I have posted before about my dalmation molly being pregnant, we have tried the breeder net, she has been in there now for over 3 days. Honestly it seems like she has been this big now for well over a month. Can something be wrong? She is eating fine, she seems well, can there be a problem...

    Plecostomus

    I couldn't get onto that site? ??? I know now it is a clown pleco, I will try and add the driftwood tomorrow.  Thanks for the advice, about the bigger tank...that just might be something later on when my boys are bigger, this was just for our 3 year old to learn about the importance of pets...

    Plecostomus

    OK...it is a clown pleco. They said it shouldn't get to be but about 4" long. Last night I watched it and it was very active at night so now I feel much better about the fact it is just resting during the day. Thanks for all you help!

    Plecostomus

    That is what the store said, Jack from Jacks aquarium said a 10 gallon would only take this smaller kind of bottom feeder, honestly I have no idea exactly what it is called. I have seen it out at the bottom and on top of the shark before, mostly at night. Is that when it does most of the "bottom...

    Plecostomus

    We just recently bought a plecostomus due to a high algae problem...he seems to be sitting on the bottom of the tank in this "shark" mouth that we have and rarely comes out. He seems very lonely, we have 2 female mollies and one male, should we get another plecostmous to join it? We only have a...

    breeder net verses breeder box?

    Any suggestions on the breeder net verses the breeder box. I bought a breeder net today for my dalamation molly that is about to have her fry soon and it just seems like a much bigger area than the actual box, (plus much cheaper). The box looked so confusing to me. Can you put more that one...

    Help with Mollie Fish !

    seems like you might be changing your water too much? Read that article great one! You should only be changing the water once a month! She might be aggresive because of all the water changes. They recommended to me having 2 females and 1 male because of the dominance. If you do have 2 males and...

    Molly is pregnant? Need advice

    Thanks, I am going to try the net for a while and see how this goes. I haven't seen any as of yet and I have checked the tank thoroughly...she seems OK so far in the net, eating fine, looks a bit lonely though. My only big dilemma is I am pretty sure the other female is pregnant. Can I put both...

    Molly is pregnant? Need advice

    10 gallon tank, it is cycled.  I just today bought a breeder net to see if this would help her in her expulsion of the babies.  She looks like she is going to blow any moment.  There are 2 female dalmation mollies and 1 male and we also have a mini plocostomus (sp?).  I just had no idea it would...

    Molly is pregnant? Need advice

    Just recently got an aquarium in January so I am very new at this. It was for our son because he loves fish. We bought 2 female mollies and 1 male (as recommended). One of the females looks pregnant but seems like she has been for a while now. Most sites are saying they should bear the live fish...
