    Guppy Pregnant Atleast 28 Days, No Fry.

    Hi again, One of my female guppies is quite pregnant and I'm starting to worry a little because she still hasn't given birth. I bought her pregnant, so I can't give the exact amount of days, but for the duration I've had her, she is atleast 28 days pregnant. She is much larger...

    Male Guppy Distressed

    About 4 days ago I added two females and 1 male guppy into one of my 10 gallons. Everything was fine for the first two days. Yesterday I noticed that the male was breathing much faster and his tail was slightly clamped but not fully. Today when I turned the lights on he's only resting on the...

    Female Guppy Tail

    Hey everyone, So today I went to my lfs and got a couple guppies. After letting them acclimate for about an hour and releasing them, I noticed one of the females' tails looked a little lower/"limp" when compared to the other female I just purchased. It's not too noticeable, but I'm just...

    What Are These?

    I purchased some cabomba from my lfs today, and as I was putting it in my tanks, I saw these two little things crawling on the paper towel. I smushed them just in case cause they were really quick, and it sounded like they had a shell of some sort... Any ideas would be appreciated. These were...

    One of my bettas has these two bumps that appear to be bulging out on one of his sides. I thought it might be a swim bladder issue but he always swims completely center balanced. Any ideas?

    Best Way To Transport 4 Whiteskirts

    On Saturday I plan to take 4 adult whiteskirt tetras to my "lfs." Not exactly too local which is why I'm concerned. It'll be about an hour drive and their age difference might take affect. Two of them are going on about 6 years old and the other two are maybe between 1-2 years. I was wondering...

    Betta Bulbs

    Alrighty, so I bought a pack of Betta Bulbs at petco just to see if they would do anything. And oh did they. They have grown about the height of my tank and I think it's safe to say they've taken root. My question is, should I remove the actual bulb or just leave it in there? Imo, it kinda...

    What Is This Wormlike Thing In My Tank??

    Okay so I'm very creeped out in the fact that I just saw these small worms attached to what looks like a bunch of dead duckweed leaves. They're swimming on their own, they're not on a fish or anything. I've never seen or heard anything like this and I'd like to know if it's a parasite or not...

    Need A Second Opinion

    So one of my female glofish had fin rot so I put her in her own tank with some meds. It seemed to have helped with the inflammation, but her fin never grew back. She was doing fine for about a week or so after the treatment was finished, but now she has it again and it's really bad. She swims in...

    Can Rcs Live With Glofish?

    Just curious if I could put a few RCS in a 10 gal. that has 3 very old glofish in it. There are several hiding places including pvc connectors, fake plants, and I have a marimo ball on its way. Any insight would be great.
