    More help sexing Rams please…

    Hi guys, Please can I have some help sexing my Rams? I have numbered them to make it easier. I think 1 is a male and the rest are females although 2 has male potential.

    Platy fry and Pygmy Cory

    Hi guys, Are Pygmy Corys safe with my platy fry? The platy fry are 2 weeks old and swimming freely. I have 5 Pygmy Cory that I’d like to put in the same 10g tank (temporarily) but don’t want to lose the platy fry. I can’t imagine a Pygmy Cory would eat a baby platy but I don’t want to risk it...

Well the Dalmatian spotted one and the blue/orange one (no idea what there actual colour variants are called- sorry) look to be pregnant. However, they have been like this for a good 3-4 weeks now. Is this normal? All my...
