Hi, I searched the forums for this topic?!

A baby guppy has now 3 big black spots on one side and three in identical position (symmetric) on the other side, is he sick?

Thanks

Well my young guppy was not immuned to the sirens' song; today, new colors...he's a shiny bugger, already dancing for the ladies.
I'm gonna call him Travolta.

Fudge wrong picture

Haha yes, that was my coordinated phase, when the white belt matched the white shoes, my wife likes purple, so without any idea I could decorate the tank properly, I started buying pink and purple decos...so now it<s my experimental tank. i just dropped a branch of photos in there to help with ammonia and ambiance.

That's awesome! He is still a tiny little fella but has a tonne of pride and colour already! Just wondering, How much did you buy yours for?

WARNING...Totally off topic

I am curious as to why the water level is a few inches below the top rim of these tanks. I actually see that quite often and was wondering if there is a specific reason for it. I keep my 55 and my 5.5 filled all the way to the bottom of the band around the top and wonder if I shouldn't fill them so full.

I was just wondering if it depends on personal preference or if there is another reason for it. Maybe to keep fish from jumping out, maybe?

For me, It's for two reasons

  1. They water evaporates very quickly because of the rapid water surface I have so I can lose an inch in a week.
  2. I am breeding air-breathing snails for the pea puffer I am getting soon and they appreciate the ease of access to oxygen!

Fair. I unfortunately have to sell him (he was born not bought into my tank) and was wondering about price.

We're actually looking into getting another tank in the next few months, hopefully a 75 gallon, then we can move one. For the most part they're vertical, head up tail down sometimes they'll be slightly slanted. My husband said late last night he saw one swimming back and forth around the other one just for a few seconds, he thinks it they could be wanting to mate?

Tried to get a good pic, the scratches are on the camera

reason no 1, arm space when i dive into the tank the water rises, reason no 2 some fish breathe from the surface and i am planning on gouramis and just got into the habit, reason no 3 since my tanks have to have lids, it allows thehouse plants space to grow outside of the water
