    Pregnant Mollie Won’t Give Birth

    My orange sailfin is very pregnant, ballooned up and swims slow. She has been looking ready to pop for 4-5 days now but every morning I expect to see fry she is still the same :/ Any ways to induce pregnancy or help her along? Or should I just keep waiting it out?

    Did I sex my dwarf gourami correctly?

    Hi all, I have been trying to get my gourami to breed for about a week now. I followed all instructions I saw online: Keep male separate until female gourami claims the territory and knows hiding spots, Put floating objects in the surface of the water, keep temps at around 80 degrees F or a...

    Why does my Dwarf Gourami look like this?

    It’s almost like the skin is being sucked around his organs, his head is even slightly caved in. What’s going on? Sorry if photos aren’t great.

I cannot house my barb in the community because he is very aggressive, but cramping him into this 10 gallon is no good especially since he doesn’t have any other fish living in...

    Is my Alernanthera dying?

    I am not sure, but it seems like the leaves are yellowing a bit since I received the plants in the mail. If so how do I stop them from dying? EDIT: The undersides of all leaves are bright red, it’s just the tops that are yellowish.

    Did I plant everything right?

    Hi, I just started my first ever planted tank. It’s a 30gal, I got everything including tank, filter, LED hood, 100w heater and gravel on the side of the road for free. The only things I have bought so far are the fish which I owned previously in another established tank, and the sand. I say...

    What kind of moss is this?

    I recently acquired some moss from a local creek I visited. I put it in a small jar to wait for all the parasites to die out (probably for too long, the discoloration hopefully doesn’t mean it will die soon), and everything i saw in the jar has died so I took the moss out and washed it...
