    Fat Or Constipated Angelfish?

    Hello Is it a Female Fish? is it over 6 months old? Females will get fat with eggs about every 10 to 14 days, the larger the fish the fatter it will get. you may never see her lay the eggs, as other fish in the tank will eat them.

    Hi May be a silly question, but are your discus doing good in the current water condtios? If the answer is yes, then don't mess with the chemistry of your water. The more you mess with it, the more work you will have to do to keep it at a constant level. Stable condtions are much better than...
