    55 gal tank stock

    Thank you! Our pleco is a bristlenose sorry I couldn't remember the name but as soon as I saw it I noticed it was the same. I'm so bad at remembering some of these names (especially when it's a fish the kids pick). The albino shark must not be called that per say. I know at the store they said...

    Platy or Swordtail What do you think?

    Pregnant Swordtail?

    She is a lot smaller than the swordtail we already have which surprised us. She looks maybe a little boxed to me but I'm a first timer and have no idea. I think she looks more today than yesterday.

    Pregnant Platy?

    Thanks! I am such a newbie to this but it's super exciting. She still swimming around as normal I would say and still eating. Should I wait till she isn't doing those to put her in a breeder box? The box we have connects to an air pump so she's getting fresh filtered water in the box.

    Pregnant Platy?

    I grew up seeing pregnant Molly's but never a platy. First question is does our platy look pregnant or just fat? And second, should she be going into a breeder box or do we have some time? This photo was 3 days ago (Dang its hard to get photos of fish )
