    Is my guppy pregenat??

    The guppy does look pregnant and so if she gives birth in your main tank, your fish will probably try to eat the little guppies but if you give the guppies little decorations for them to hide in, they should be safe.

    Stocking for 5gal

    Hi! Okay so I would suggest if you wanted to put a Pygmy Gourami in that five gallon, it might be a teensy bit small but if it was by itself it might be okay. (I mean you could definitely also have a Nerite snail but no other large fish.) But as stated before, a betta would also be fine! Maybe...

    Battle of the Glofish! Danios vs Tetras vs Barbs? Who is best?!

    I would definitely go with the Tetras because they are truly hardy. I have had very bad experiences with the Danios. Though, I have had a Glofish Tetra for months and months!!!!

    Is this a male Bumblebee cichlid?

    Yes, this is correct. So males are probably more yellow and brown. Is there a way you can compare it to another bumblebee (maybe even a female). Though, I am very sure that is a bumblebee.

    Molly fry tank has ich! Help!

    That is awesome! Anyway, you should search online for ways to identify ich. Also, FishLore has a page on Ich. I have heard they first start to appear on the "pectoral fins." Also, they might swim as if their fins are uncomfortable. Does any of this sound familiar?

    No- I'm sorry I'm confused as well. I truly think it will be fine. The employee I worked with might have misread it idk. She said it was a little low and it should be fine in a day or two with Prime. Thanks, tanksalot.

    Awesome. Yea- your ramshorn snails will be fine. I actually do not know how much or when and I do not want to give you a wrong amount. Hmm... you also want to be doing a lot of water changes. So you might want to research that. And so are you very, very sure you cannot raise the temperature...

    Hi! Okay so I had my water tested and my pH levels were low-ish. (It was more of a orange/yellow than a dark orange.) So I have Prime and I will definitely use that and after I use my Prime and let it cycle, I will have to, of course, so about a 25% water change. By the way, this is a 40 gallon...
