    Fat Female Honey Gourami

    I have one female and two male honey gouramis. I know this because one has become a pair and are constantly "flirting". Recently i noticed that the female is pretty fat. The male is not courting her and theres no bubble nest. I cant tell if its eggs, overeating, or parasites. Shes also...

    Help!! White Eyed Female Betta

    Help! I noticed tonight that my female betta has these white spots on her eyes... Everything I looked up said that it was because of bad water quality, but our water quality is fine... any other reason why she might be like this?? She's also more pale than usual, but looks otherwise healthy...

    Pregnant Swordtail... I think?

    I know nobody has answered, but I'm bumping this up because I'm very confused. She was looking very boxy, and we could finally see the dark black spot. We put her in the breeder, and in the morning there was just lots of poop, she wasn't boxy anymore, and the black spot was gone. We put her...

    Pregnant Swordtail... I think?

    She looks less "pregnant" now... perhaps she was just bloated?

    How do you get your Otto cats their algae wafers? My endlers are pigs!

    I have a 5 gallon with not so great filtration, and the algae wafers are usually all fully eaten in a day or two, so it shouldn't gunk up your tank. And well, your endless might be eating a lot but you still gotta feed your other fish!

    Help! Betta fry not eating microworms

    That's very strange. All of mine have taken to eating microworms. I know you've done your research and everything is probably correct, but I'm going to ask anyways. What size is the breeding tank? Did you test the water, if so, what is it at? (Nitrates, Nitrites, PH, Ammonia). Have you been...

    Betta Flaring At Other Fish - Community Tank

    That's what I'd figured, he's been separated and now lives with me until we can find him a good home. I wasn't sure since he didn't seem to be doing any other breeding behaviour.. I guess by adding the female, his hormones started acting up which would explain why he started acting the way he...

    Pregnant Swordtail... I think?

    So, this isn't my first pregnant fish, my first fry, or anything. I've successfully bred guppies and bettas. In fact, this isn't really even my tank. My boyfriend has a 10 gallon community tank, where we've determined he's got one pregnant guppy, and now what LOOKS to be like a pregnant...

    How do you get your Otto cats their algae wafers? My endlers are pigs!

    I've had otos with my bettas, and my bettas have always loved algae wafers. I usually put in 2-3 wafers on opposite ends of the tank (one on the far left, one on the far right, and one in the back). That way, the other fish will focus on one or two, and the otos will be able to have one all to...

    Male Red Elephant Ear Plakat Betta

    I have a male elephant ear betta that was given to me as a rescue, but I don't really have room for him. I have his tank with all his supplies, but I've put him in one of my own tanks so his tank is currently empty. He can come with all of it or not, it's up to you. I just want him to go to a...

    Cloudy Tank Water

    I've put sand in my own personal tanks before. It's possible that he put the water in too quickly, I can't remember, but shouldn't the filter have filtered it all out by now? If I had sand and there was some cloud in the water, I just ran the filter and it usually cleared it within a few hours...

    Companion for my betta?

    It depends on the betta, honestly. I've had bettas who've lived peacefully with cory catfish, otos, snails, guppies, tetras, and sometimes even as big of fish as mollies. But that was a rare case and I've NEVER seen a betta live with that many fish before. This guy was special. And even then...

    Cloudy Tank Water

    I'll take some filter media from my own tanks. I have about 4 of them hahaha. And all have always been healthy tanks. We'll try that, and hopefully it'll work. Thank you so much for the info!
