    What Can I Mix With Guppies?

    Oh great - that was more than I was expecting! My son will be happy! Should I buy them in stages? It's just that I'm pregnant and due on Thursday so I'm a bit pushed for time! Lol! What would you guys recomend adding first? I don't want to ammonia bomb the tank!! :crazy:

    What Can I Mix With Guppies?

    Hiya! We've got an empty 50 Litre tank at the mo (fully mature filter) and I'm just wondering what I can have in there...? My little boy really wants Guppies (the tank was his b'day prezzy) but I'm just wondering what I can mix with them? Can I mix Neon's with Guppies? Any suggestions would...

    What's Happening To My Guppy?

    Yeah it is hard, I didn't think I'd ever get so attached to a fish to be honest! Lol! :blush: It was so sad but at least I know I did everything I could of to try to save him... -_- The others all seem to be in good health so here's to hoping I don't have to do all this again any time soon!

    What's Happening To My Guppy?

    Just to let everyone know that Blueberry is now part of the ocean in the sky... :( He was getting more and more distressed as the day went on today so we put the little guy out of his misery by putting him in freezing cold water - Wilder was right, it seemed instant and I left him in there for...

    What's Happening To My Guppy?

    My son is only 4 so I'll probably get away with telling him that he's gone to live at the fishy hospital - he knows Blueberry's been poorly so I suppose it won't be a major shock for him! I'll post when it's done - thanks so much for all your help over the past couple of weeks! :flowers:

    What's Happening To My Guppy?

    What's Happening To My Guppy?

    Is that painful for the fish?? :unsure: I didn't really know of the most humane way to do it...? If I fridge cool the water for a long while and then add a heap of ice cubes would that be ok?? Aww - I feel awful about this... :-(

    What's Happening To My Guppy?

    I was hoping it wouldn't come to this but I don't think it's fair to let the little guy suffer any more... :-( What's clove oil, where do I buy it and how do I use it??? ????

    Guppy Tail Badly Damaged

    The tail damage was so rapid - one night I noticed a tiny hole in his tail, by the morning it was a complete rip - by that night his tail started to shred and now he only has half left :( I fairly sure my little guy has an internal infection of some kind - I don't think there's much hope...

    Guppy Tail Badly Damaged

    Looks like something similar to what I'm dealing with Hun - my male guppy's lost half his tail now! :( I'm not very experienced so I can't really advise you - wait for Wilder to come online! ;) Good luck! :good:

    What's Happening To My Guppy?

    The last dose of the Anti Internal Bacteria med was 6 days ago - the instrustions say I can add another dose after a week so I'm thinking I may try one more dose... :unsure: I know I've done what I can but he seems so content - he's eating and swimming normally, he's not hanging around at the...

    What's Happening To My Guppy?

    Hiya! Blueberry is still with us - eating, swimming, still bloated, I haven't really seen him pooping and missing nearly half his tail! -_- I've just done another water change and it looks like one if not both of his eyes has "popped out"??? :unsure: Obviously I'm taking this as "not...

    Poo!

    Hi There! I'm by no means an expert so you might want to wait for once of the more experienced guys to pop in but I believe white stringy poo usually means internal parasites! I think you should probably invest in some Anti Internal Bacteria Meds ASAP! Good Luck :good:
