    Help Shrimp Babies On The Way

    So I look in at my tank with my 7 cherry shrimp in there, and ones going ballistic, doing parkour laps around the tank. I look into this and find that it could either be unwell or unhappy, or a pheromone high male shrimp looking for a mate. I'm not able to sex him because one, he's moving too...

    Question Can I Put Shrimp In My Fry Tank?

    To preface this, I want to say that my fry tank is very small, it's only about 6l. Its not even there to grow the fish up completely, I have a spare fish tank currently being lived in for my larger fry. My fry are swordtails babies, so they're larger at birth than other fish. The tank has an...

    Help Why So Fat?? Zebra Danio

    Does this Zebra Danio look eggy to anyone? Or is it something more sinister? I'm asking because I have had cases of dropsy in that tank before, which I haven't had in a while after doing some good maintenance on the tank, it's made me a bit paranoid. Is this an eggy female, just a fat fish, or...

    Question Fat Cory, Sick Or Gravid??

    Yesterday I've bought 3 bronze Corydoras to deck out my new 65 l aquarium. I was going to get four, but for now they must share the tank with a smaller bristlenose, and I felt it was unfair to keep 5 catfish in one new tank. When I move Mildred (the bristlenose) out, I will hopefully buy them...

    Question When Do Swordtails Get Their Colors?

    I know for the most part that they come in relatively quickly, but I have also read that different colours take longer. I was wondering if anyone had a rough time frame for each colour? I've got 4 little swordtails that were born while I was away, 3 are covered with black spots, and are turning...

    Red Patches On Betta Fins

    Could someone please tell me what my poor boy Soc has? He has always had some red tint in his fins, but these bright red patches are new, and, well, patchy. He's probably about a year or so old. I can't tell you what my parameters are, but I've just done a full clean on his tank, so if there...

    Mating Display??

    I'm just curious about one thing, I've been watching my male guppy when he interacts with other fish, and when he's following a female he's interested in and gets right up close, he clamps his tail in tight. It's not a permanent clamp, and it's only when he's very close to a female, so I believe...

    Body Flukes?

    I bought some female guppies for my males a little while ago, and I put them in a small tank I have for quarantine. The guppies seemed fine, except I came home today to find one had clamped her fins. Not to the point of pintail, but compared to how the others had theirs spread, it was extremely...

    Am I Being Paranoid Again? Pregnant Fish

    I got a bunch of platies from a pet store, we bought them as feeder fish so they were super cheap(Mum's idea) and also super young. We initially lost quite a few of them, because we hurriedly put them into a new tank that hadn't been cycled properly(we had to set up the new tank to separate my...

    Callamanus, Anything Else?

    So recently I've found callamanus worms in my angelfish. Luckily he was the only one of two fish in the tank who actually showed these worms, the second being a medium ish bristlenose catfish. He was also treated, just in case Because Australia doesn't have any fish dewormers with Levimisole in...

    Dumb Question

    Can guppies and platys crossbreed? Because if not, I have some very silly male guppies to break the new to...

    Algae Out Of Silk Plants?

    I've gad some silk plants in with my bettas for a while, and I cleaned their tanks today, and one of them is looking pretty grotty. I scrubbed it out as best as I could, but it still looks quite gross. The fake plant isn't too old and I don't really don't want to throw it out, but without any...
