    Pregnant guppy

    Would it be too stressful to remove a pregnant guppy from my tank and rehouse in an empty tank with just water? I understand many babies could be lost as guppy and other fish will eat them, but I have a store that will rehome survivors - should I let nature take its course or separate mother...

    Aggressive Rasbora

    My mother has a tank with 8 Scissortail Rasbora. For two months they have been fine, but one in particular has turned super aggressive and keeps attacking the other Rasbora. Last week she lost a Rasbora due to a vicious attack, but we are unclear if this was the aggressive Rasbora or another...

    I have neon, purple emperor and Columbian tetra living together - and never had any problems. They live with 1 guppy and have never bullied him - they've treated him like part of the family. I was told not to keep a single guppy but he is happy as Larry.

    Female danio glowlight - aggressive?

    Yes - Celestichthys choprae is exactly same image. My tank will only squeeze two - any more would overcrowd tank. Someone had 6 but 4 were killed by other species and the shop won't take them back, which is why they asked me to take them. If they are not aggressive are they likely to turn in a...

    Female danio glowlight - aggressive?

    Does anyone keep danio glowlight with guppy fish? Are female danio glowlight known to nip at fins and tails, particularly guppy? I have been asked to house two but not sure if they will bother my guppy.

    Can any suggest a fish species for my tank mates

    I tried this technique but as soon as i removed tank lid and tried to squirt they swam to the other side of tank to hide. This may be because they are new and still settling into tank?

    Can any suggest a fish species for my tank mates

    Do you know any feeding techniques for baby fish? My neon tetra are tiny and the breeder told me they may only be a few weeks old. When i open the lid to feed the bigger fish eat the food - and the babies don't come out from hiding.

    Can any suggest a fish species for my tank mates

    I wanted floating plants because i was told it will make the tetra feel better, but my local store has been out of stock. I will try amazon, as i understand there is a good seller.

    Can any suggest a fish species for my tank mates

    I do have plants but 5 are new and I don't know if they will do well, previously i had plants that died. My fish sometimes get stressed if I put the light on and i put them first. My new plants are slow growers and may do better with less light.

    Can any suggest a fish species for my tank mates

    I have built my tank up slowly - if I added another 6 danio and 8 tetra in one go do you think i'll get problems with bacteria - should i top up bottled bacteria? Tank is a few months old and has been ok so far.

    Can any suggest a fish species for my tank mates

    The tank is 112 litre tank - 90cm. I have sand substrate. I think I have been lucky because they all get on together and I want to avoid aggression so a colourful but friendly. I don't know if I could put another shoal due to size.

    Can any suggest a fish species for my tank mates

    Definitely soft water. PH is currently 6.8 My mother got an anglefish and he attacks the other fish - too aggressive for me and I don't want to risk upsetting a happy tank. For the same reason i don't want to risk betta and i hear barbs are aggressive as well. Rasbora could work.

    LED light but my fish are a funny bunch - sometimes I can turn the light on for as long as i like and other times they don't like it.

    Correct - you know your plants! And you explained why these plants survived and my others didn't - not enough light. Sometimes the fish didn't like the light so i didn't keep it on, which is why some plants died and these are fine. Probably best to get more of the same and not too many floating...

    I have purple emperor tetra and guppy. How much time would you suggest is appropriate daily, baring in mind i'm building a plant based tank - and do floating plants block light to planted plants?

    Thanks - i'll let you know when i'm ready to enter tank of the month! I think you are right - they are still exploring new tank and enjoying a bit more space. Hopefully background will help and they will get hungry.

    Water is good and i'm monitoring as it is new tank. Here is a picture - it looks empty because i didn't transfer a number of rotting plants from old tank and I need backdrop that fits. I'm going to get more plants today and hopefully backdrop. Any ideas for best tetra plants and tank build for...

    Fish training

    After joining here I learned my tank was too small for my young tetra when they get bigger - and I upgraded tank and transferred fish. In my old tank, if I lifted the lid the tetra would immediately come for feeding. In my new tank, if I lift the lid they do nothing and if i put food in it...
