    Hurt Neon Tetra

    Hi everyone, One of my Neons in my community tank isn't doing too good. Its tail has been completely bitten off by my Paradise fish. Usually, the Paradise fish is pretty calm but if it gets startled, it sometimes has a bit of a chomp. I'm guessing that's what happened because the Neon's tail was...

    Setting up my 40 gallon

    I have had my Paradise fish in the 20 gallon for two years now, but I can see he needs a larger tank as he has grown a lot. this is half the reason for me buying the 40 gallon. for his whole life, the male paradise fish was kept with a variety of other small fish. he was raised with White Clouds...

    Setting up my 40 gallon

    Ok, I will do some more research before finalising my stocking choices but thanks heaps for the information! I will make sure to look out for some water sprite at my LFS, I am definitely keen to try this plant out in the new tank.

    Cool, thanks for the response. Hopefully, it all works out but as you said, I'll make sure to have a back up plan

    Setting up my 40 gallon

    So I've got a few small tanks at the moment, nothing bigger than 20 gallons though, and I have decided after thinking for a long time that I want to get a 40 gallon and use it as a peaceful(ish) community tank. I just have a few questions regarding the tank equipment and stocking. 1. I have a...

    Need help with Betta breeding

    Ok, thanks. I've made infusoria before so that should be easy. It really shows how small betta fry are considering they can't even eat baby brine shrimp!

    Need help with Betta breeding

    Hi, Thanks to the both of you for the reply! I am very surprised by how the genes of one fish generally dominate the other, that is very interesting! For feeding the babies I will probably stick with micro worms and baby brine shrimp as I personally find them the easiest. again thanks for the...

    Need help with Betta breeding

    So I have bred and sold a few types of fish over the past few years but I wanted to try something more challenging as I have some extra time to do so in the near future. Breeding Bettas has been a dream of mine ever since I got into the hobby and now that I am educated on how to do so and I have...

    Veil Tail Betta in 45gal

    Thanks for the response, I am thinking now that it might not work... the Livebearers that I will have in the tank are Guppies, Mollies and Platties and they are all quite colourful so if the theory that Bettas don't like colourful tank mates is true, it might not work. My Betta can be a little...

    Veil Tail Betta in 45gal

    So I've had plans to make a 45gal community tank and I wanted to move my male betta from his 6gal planted tank to the community tank. The 45gal would have small fish live livebearers and tetras and from what I have found, I think the Betta would do great in the larger tank if I set it up right...

    Infection causing dropsy? Please help! Video link attached

    yep, that sounds like it could be a blockage in the digestive system or swim bladder disese. I completely agree with Colin for ways to treat your fish so I would just listen to him.

    A couple questions about Betta breeding

    Thanks heaps for the response Colin! I sure did learn a lot reading it and if I do decide to breed my Betta, I'm sure I will be referring back to this post.:) For fry food, I have some experience with infusoria, would this be all good to use? cheers.

    How much do you feed? since neons and Rasboras have small stomachs, they can be easy to overfeed and it can block up their digestive system.
