    New tank for babies

    Hi All I had 8 fry in my main tank so I quickly ordered a new tank so I could separate them..

    Pregnant Dalmation Molly

    Hi unfortunately I only have the one tank. When I bought the fish there was no mention of having a male and 2 females or the fact they were live bearers. I bought them for their colours. I think I may have to let nature take its course with the fry

    Hi Everyone

    Thanks for this I have test strips, and test water weekly and I think it is fully cycled now the nitrates and nitrites have been 0 or just above for a couple of weeks now. I also do a 25 to 30% water change and gravel wash weekly I'm hoping I'm on the right track

    Pregnant Dalmation Molly

    Hi I'm new to fish keeping I am guessing from other posts I have read that she is heavily pregnant, she has looked like this for a week now I thought the fry might have appeared by now. Is there anything to look for that might indicate they are imminent? Thanks in advance
