    Paradise fish staying small?

    I have a male and female paradise fish in a large heavily planted tank. They have had babies once but I didn’t intervene or take them out. One of the surviving fry is now about half of his mom’s size and lives in the tank too. My question is, I’ve had these guys for like a year and they are...

    The shark, Krib and a Dempsey died. The loach was eaten by the knife fish I believe he said. I've offered to test his water with my kits and he's not taken me up on it. he's not done a water change even after the death in the tank. It's kind of a hopeless situation

    Can Anyone Id This Fish?

    Someone I know caught this off the coast of Florida and is trying to ID. A commenter said it appeared to be an aquarium fish. I was wondering if anyone knew for sure? They were stopped by fish and wildlife who let them keep it because they had no clue what it was either. Thanks!

    Fungus Or Bacteria?

    When you look closely at it, does it appear that the scales are missing right there? Or is there a whiteish haze over the top of the scales?

    Betta And Friends In A 10 Gallon

    Hi! Each betta has a different personality. Some can have tank mates, others can not. You could try a few and see how he acts, but be prepared to remove them immediately and return to the store if he doesn't approve. If he shows signs of flaring and being stressed, get them out. I second the...

    Sick Tetra & Being Bullied

    Do they have places to hide in the tank? Also,the otocinculus doesn't belong in a ten gallon. He should be in more like a 30 gal.

    Been A Few Weeks Things Have Settled Down

    Your white cloud minnows prefer colder water than your tetra and barbs. Keeping them in warmer water will shorten their lifespan.

    Platy With Cloudy Film On Eye! Please Help Asap!

    I would rehome all the platy or take them back to the store. Getting rid of a few of each kind of fish doesn't fix the issue of the species needing two different kinds of water to thrive. I would suggest purchasing an api master test kit. It will give you enough chemicals to test for years and...

    What are your water stats right now? You'll need a test kit. Ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate readings would be helpful. A lot of us use the API master test kit. Did you do a nitrogen cycle or just let the water run for 6 weeks? Thanks

    Divided Tank For Bettas

    I hate to say this because I know your heart is in the right place, but you won't be able to rescue bettas. In reality, if you buy 10, they say we sold 10! Let's replace them with more! There will always be a steady stream of bettas coming in. My suggestion would be to call or write a letter...

    Is She Pregnant?

    Is it possible to get a pregnant female betta from a pet store? If so, does she look pregnant? She's getting more and more rotund and the others bought at the same time are not.
