    New Here And New Fish Owner

    Welcome kelly. Yes male mollies can be very pushy/horny to their female companions. I would recommend adding more decor for shelter for the female to hide in plus getting another 2 females in another week or so the lone female does not get stressed out. Then you can also experience fry(baby...

    Fish Trouble

    It's generally not too good to have nitrates at 0 since this shows the presence of beneficial bacteria, but its not so bad as to cause disease breakouts, just some stress. Since your tank setup it still fairly new, i would try reducing the amount you take out so you give the bacteria time to...

    Thinking Of Getting A Black German Shepherd

    I've heard of several bad behavioural problems(since volunteering with multiple animal rescues) with german shepards but really it could happen with any dog, so it's all based on a dogs history and past.

    Pregnant Platy

    Usually within 30 days they will give birth to around 20-40 fry depending on the age of the platy. Have floating or surface plants so the fry have somewhere to hide or other fish, including the parents, will eat them quick. The female will have a large belly, almost squarish. Increasing the...

    Typically you want nitrates present since that shows a sign of beneficial bacteria, so thr 0 reading of those isn't good. Could also be from over feeding(when was your last water change?).

    Kids Right's, Fish Rights...

    I started fish keeping at 17 and i had a 30g and 10 gallon and took care of them with pride but my mom also raised me to treat all living things with respect and great care. It all depends how the kids are raised and learn to treat living things. I've met some very messy, uncaring teens then...

This could be a cave, bush of plants or elsewhere where she feels hidden. She will stay still there until she has some, them swim around a bit then stay very still...
