    Male platy bullying female

    I have 3 female platies and 1 male at the moment. For a few weeks I've noticed one female has been getting chased and bullied by the male. Ive watched carefully to make sure she wasn't losing any weight and making sure she ate. I noticed it started right after she gave birth. Im not sure what to...

    Cataracts in betta fish? Or Bac/fungal infection?

    Not sure what it is. He could use a little immune boost from some medication from recovering from fin rot and age. But today one of his eyes looked off. Not poped out or anything. But it looked similar to when he had Popeye in Febuary and he was healing from it. Hes in a 5 gallon tank currently...

    AquaClear HOB filter?

    I saw a few videos on this filter and really enjoy the fact it comes as a '3 stage filtration' filter. With a lot of room to personalize your filtration needs. I currently have a 10 gallon topfin tank with the topfin silenstream 10 power filter. there's not much room in it for 3 stage...

    Anyone Tried Alder Cones?

    SunGrow claims that they prevent fungal infections. However they are super expensive and I'm on a budget with my fish keeping (I mean with extra things not with anything i seriously need).
