    Help!! White Eyed Female Betta

    Pregnant Swordtail... I think?

    So, this isn't my first pregnant fish, my first fry, or anything. I've successfully bred guppies and bettas. In fact, this isn't really even my tank. My boyfriend has a 10 gallon community tank, where we've determined he's got one pregnant guppy, and now what LOOKS to be like a pregnant...

    Male Red Elephant Ear Plakat Betta

    I have a male elephant ear betta that was given to me as a rescue, but I don't really have room for him. I have his tank with all his supplies, but I've put him in one of my own tanks so his tank is currently empty. He can come with all of it or not, it's up to you. I just want him to go to a...

    Cloudy Tank Water

    So my boyfriend's tank is having an issue, and I don't know what it could be. He had a 5.5 gallon and recently moved to a 10 gallon, like not even a week ago. It hasn't stopped being cloudy, and we've tried almost everything we can think of. -He's got sand, so we turned off the bubblers to see...

    Betta Flaring At Other Fish - Community Tank

    So before you go all "bettas are supposed to live alone" on me, this fish is pretty special. He's been housed with corys, cream-coloured platy, panda tetras... And he's been 100% fine with them. Never flared, never chased them, would eat along side them like no problem. However, we recently...

    Help! Random Baby!

    I felt really bad for the fish in my mothers tank, she had two neon tetras, two black skirts, and one Cory catfish. So last night I went out and I bought four neon tetras and another Cory catfish for her tank. While I was floating the bags in the tank, I noticed in the neon tank that there was...

    New Starter Tanks (Cichlid & Freshwater)

    Hello, i've been here before and i'm not new to fish keeping. I've had a 10gal fish tank for 10 or so years, with no issues. I have had many betta fish (not that they all die, i've had a bunch at one time and eventually they passed on). At one point I had guppies, ottos, and platties (which...

    Monster Poop

    one of my black skirts has a ... Well, he has a massive poop coming out of him. Can fish get constipated? He's not looking too good, I think it's effecting him.

    Alright, so I'm most likely going to be moving to the uk for school, in about a year and a half. I've got a betta and a bristlenose Pleco that I'll be taking with me, and I have no idea how to move them, as I would give them away but if I did give them they would most likely be dead within a...

    Fed Mosquito Larvae To My Betta

    I have a puppy pool in my backyard for my puppy, and since it hasn't been really warm out I haven't emptied/cleaned it out in a while. My puppy doesn't touch it unless it's cleaned, so it's all good there.   The thing is, the puppy pool now has mosquito larvae in it. I remember reading somewhere...
