    Guppy Or Dalmatian Molly Fry??

    Yes it was definitely a molly fry but definitely born from a guppy which is why she died. Way too big for her. Upon further inspection one of the mollies was definitely a male. Little one was thriving until I messed up and did 50% water change and didn’t realize my heater had died, so lost all...

Didn’t realize til too late that my heater died and lost all of my fish but one to the shock of big temp drop. Have one Dalmatian molly left who seems to be slowly dyingand now has developed this weird fungus...

    Guppy Or Dalmatian Molly Fry??

    Just really examined the mollies and they’re def female. Wondering if the guppy just died before birthing any babies and maybe one of the mollies was pregnant. One of them has been hanging out by the heater a lot. Neither one looks pregnant to me? Mystery baby

    Guppy Or Dalmatian Molly Fry??

    My grey with black tail guppy died during birth. Didn’t realize she’d gotten any out and then saw 2 a week later. It’s a little more than two weeks now and there’s only one left, but it looks more like a Dalmatian Molly to me. Are some guppies spotted at birth?

    Male Guppies Harassing Male Swordtails

    Well my poor swordtails finally were harrassed to death. So upset that I didn’t just flush the two harassing guppies but couldn’t bring myself to do that to a living little fish and so now I have two dead swordtails. One had been hiding for weeks and barely eating. He died on Saturday. The other...

    Male Guppies Harassing Male Swordtails

    Also, I’ve had the females for about a month now and only one of the males seems to show interest. I was told it’s because they aren’t bright pretty colors. Just grabbed six of whatever females Petsmart had to help the poor swordtails. Didn’t realize the male guppies would be picky!!!

    Male Guppies Harassing Male Swordtails

    I am new to this all. Had the same goldfish for 2.5 years Ann he just got too big for the 10 gallon tank. I upgraded to 20 gallons and didn’t know about cycling the tank. He died two days later. So I tried to get some colorful, what I was told were peaceful, fish to enjoy the newly cycled tank...

    Male Guppies Harassing Male Swordtails

    have had 3 male guppies in tank with 2 male swordtails. Thought the harassment may be the other way around since the swordtails are the larger fish. It’s been more than a month and the two swordtails now hide most of the time. One in rocks all day and night and the other in the plants with very...

    Male Guppies Harassing Male Swordtails

    I just realized I said the swordtails were flashing, I used the wrong term!! I meant pacing or just swimming quickly up and Dow the side of the tank. They’re not rubbing or banging into anything. They are still eating very little and swimming up and down non stop. The male guppies seem to have...

    Male Guppies Harassing Male Swordtails

    I have been testing the water at home with tetra 5 in 1 strips. And took to store twice after the glofish died, but realized they’re using the same strips! When the goldfish first died I tested with same strips and it was high in nitrites and now no nitrites or elevated nitrates so quality has...

    Male Guppies Harassing Male Swordtails

    Thanks so much for the info. A separate tank isn’t really an option, financially and space wise. I thought stress could cause flashing, but if not can I treat the whole tank? Def no ich, tho the glofish does have an odd growth on one side, on gill, behind eye not really sure. I’ll attach a pic...

    Male Guppies Harassing Male Swordtails

    And do what with them? I have no other tank. I was hoping there might be something I could do to help them adjust to being in the same tank. Also why are the guppies not interested in the females? They are very small, could they be too young?

    Male Guppies Harassing Male Swordtails

    Im new to the fish keeping world. Had a comet goldfish that I bought for my son for 30 cents for two years. He was outgrowing his 10 gallon tank so I upgraded to 20 gallon, stupidly without cycling the new tank.... he died two days later. So now with a brand new 20 gallon tank that I had...
