    Red mark on Platy

    Thank you - not sure if this is a daft question. Should I still feed the fish tonight or give them a break tonight??

    Red mark on Platy

    concerned it might be more than a missing scale. Fish has been quiet since the weekend but this is the first day of seeing a physical problem. Also now just staying at the bottom of the tank. With the julii corys and bristlenose salt still best over the melafix and primafix??

    Red mark on Platy

    Nope got rid of two male platys that were being a nuisance and a couple of guppies. That was a couple of weekends ago. This has developed today. No sharp objects or decor. Even got the fluval heater because it was fully covered to reduce risk of burns etc. Got live plants so no plastic. Tank is...

    Red mark on Platy

    Come home to find a red mark/sore on one of my platys. The others are also quite skittish. It's unusual for them to be hiding. I have melafix and primafix in the cupboard. Is it worth trying these? I lost a Cory on Sunday but wondering if maybe due to these being new fish that ? readings are...

    Have I got this wrong??

    After a day, two male platys and two guppies that seem to be the problem will be going back to the store Saturday Last male platy seems pretty chilled out and the other guppies are also fine not showing any interest. When these go back will have 7 platys and 5 guppies. Can anyone recommend...

    Have I got this wrong??

    Definitely 7 guppies in there, not wrong about that ;) Read platys were ok tank mates with guppies? The three I've put in the box seem to be the trouble makers. Rest seem to be doing ok now?

    Have I got this wrong??

    Doesn't look like she's about to drop fry or am I wrong? Thought the black would be further back?? The two bad males and guppy have gone in the naughty box for now and everyone else is getting on so may look to re-home these three. Shame as they are beautiful blue.

    Have I got this wrong??

    Got my tank cycled and added 7 male guppies and a mix of 7 platys. Turns out 3 males for 4 females. Two of the males have been constantly chasing one of the females all the others have been left alone. I’ve gone and bought 2 females today to try and up the female numbers. They still seem...

    Too much ammonia??

    Did have a wobble in the middle I must admit lol Sorry one more question, when the fish do arrive is it worth putting any medication in there for stress or anything??

    Too many fish too soon??

    I must admit that is what I was reading this morning from the cycle link as I printed it off. Just wondered if was widely used. Wouldn't go 100% straight off
