    Orange Seamed Plec Being Molested By Guppies

    Yes - they're pulling it off him before it has a chance to come out.....   There's plenty of room in the tank by the way which is 30g with 2 male and 4 female guppies - 3 skunk corys and the plec.  The tank's also planted with plenty of hiding places....   The plec doesn't seem bothered but if I...

    Skunk Cory Turning White

    Hi there fish folks....   I installed 4 skunk corys in my 125l fish tank 2 weeks ago....   The tank has now been running for about a month with a few guppies and a plec.   One of the skunks appears to be losing its colour and not as active as the other 3 - please see pic.....   The ammonia in...
