    Black Algae

    I recently switched my pale yellow bulb to a brighter white one since the previous one stopped working. I've noticed that the white gravel is turning black and there's black algae like growth on the tank wall. I think it's because of the light so I intend to change it back to the yellow one. Now...

    What fish is this?

    Woah okay had no idea about the aquarium fish diseases. I'll try to find where she was brought from and until then will feed the variety you've told me.

    Is This For Real? Fish Coming Back To Life...

    Did that with a platy once and it did "come back to life", but unfortunately wasn't able to survive for long.

    What fish is this?

    I do soak the pellets, but they still don't really sink.. I've soaked them for even ten minutes or more. They float on the top unless I press them- then they sink. Does this mean the pellets I have are low quality? Thank you for the info on her feed. I'll try checking out some fishing equipment...

    Peeling backdrop

    So I removed the wallpaper, but there are these glue spots. Is this glue harmful for the tank water or my fish (in case they nibble on them)?

    Peeling backdrop

    Hey, I don't know if it's an emergency or not, but my aquarium's wallpaper's peeling. I never noticed it even though I try to keep a close eye on all that's going on in the aquarium. What's worrisome is that there's space between the sheet and the glass wall of the aquarium and my platy...

    What fish is this?

    Thank you for the reply. How many times a day should I feed it? This photo was just before I fed it, it looked rounder after that. I feed the platy once a day. Is that enough by the way? The platy aren't skinny at all and are active throughout the day. They got swim bladder problems when I fed...

    What fish is this?

    So, recently somebody brought this little dude/dudette and gifted it to us. I have no idea what breed it is, and I think the person who brought it has no idea either (I think they caught it from some river, but I'm not sure). It's super shy and for some weeks I thought it was a bottom-feeder...

    How to introduce new platy

    So I got a new mickey mouse platy and I want to add it to my redwag platy aquarium. > That's all right, yes? They are platy after all, so the type shouldn't matter yeah? I had to get one in an emergency for an event, so I bought it from a nearby store. The living conditions of the fish there...

    Fat, resting Red Wag Platy

    I'm not sure where, in my area, I'll be able to get a water sprite, but I'll add more plastic ones– and definitely try to keep the tiger barb away :X

    Fat, resting Red Wag Platy

    Oh gosh, okay, thank you. I saw some videos online and yes, she's behaving just like an expecting fish. I searched up about the fry and have a rough understanding of what I need to know. I should protect them or separate them from the mother fish when they're born, but what about the other...

    Tiger barb looks a bit fat..

    One of my red wags became fat almost overnight. I didn't notice it growing fat at least, and I try to observe any changes in them as best as I can. I observed my tiger barb and it's a bit fatter than before too. Is it just me being paranoid or is it something more? Is it overfeeding? Though I...

    Fat, resting Red Wag Platy

    I noticed today that one of my red wags is looking pretty fat and has been resting at the back and bottom of the tank since morning. It does move around the tank occasionally and has eaten as well. Is it sick or just expecting? I searched up online and found similar questions. One's red wag died...
