  • Dear Colin,

    Greeting from Greece. I was wondering if i could ask you some questions referring to Blue Guramis breading.

    How can i know when a female blue Gurami is having eggs?
    How often do they produce eggs?
    Is there any method to make them produce eggs and be ready for meeting a male?

    Thank you very much
    Dear Colin

    I got a recommendation from a forum member about a big problem I have in my cory fish room. Please see link to the post below. Would really appreciate some advice. Thank you!

    Hi may I ask you questions bout my crayfish. Water parameters and weekly water changes are done. But my crayfish havenā€™t been eating, or occasionally will eat peas but not pellet food. Thereā€™s white tiny worms that look like threads in the water and heā€™s been having Long stringy poop, may I know whatā€™s the cause? Or is anything wrong?
    I just now put black paper on the back and 1 side of my Killie tank. Instant positive change ! You always say to do that. Keep saying it.
    Colin is an absolute beast when it come to fish! He knows so much, and willingly shares it! He also manages to give his advise in a very friendly way, which can be tricky over just text were itā€™s really easy to come off as condescending or rude.
    Hi do you have any advice for operation on tumors? You've recently responded to my threat (thank you again) but I've seen videos of people preforming surgeries and removing the tumor. If so what products do I need to make the procedure safer?

    There is no safe way to operate on a small fish. You need an anesthetic like MS222 (from a vet) and a clean area to work. If you give the fish too much anesthetic you kill it. It would be very risky because the tumour is located near the brain and the labyrinth organ. Even if you remove the tumour from the outside of the fish, there could still be some left behind in the bone and it will simply grow back.
