    Galaxy Rasbora

    Hey all, am picking up 8 of these guys on saturday. Has anyone got them or successfully bred them? They are going into a 100L planted tank with zebra danios and two gold panchax.... At least until the panchax get their own tank. Cheers. Darth.

    Hey all, just noticed my female BN has a red spot on her head, kinda looks like a suck mark, she is still doing everything she has always done. Eating great, water parameters are fine... Does it sound like 'hole in the head'? No pics sorry. It looks like the big male has bitten her but I dont...

    Preg. Zebra Danio

    Hey, I have 5 zebras, looks like 2 of them are female and full of eggs, they are massive(compared to the males). Only have dwarf green rush, an Indo fern and an Anubius in there with them, do they need particular types of plants to spawn?

    Breeding Advise...

    A mate and I are wanting to breed some fish that are hard to find here in Australia. Probably looking at some rasbora or something like that. 70L tank cleaned, new substrate in, thinking about using a cloned filter just to get a good start on a cycle. Plan set up a real natural habitat for...

    Well the new fish are in and the tank looks awesome, I have to stop and watch every time I walk past! So added to the original BN plecs were 7 harlequin rasbora, 5 zebra danio and 3 gold barbs. I was talked into the barbs but they are great, cruising around the bottom/ mid tank. Put a black...

    My First Ammonia Spike...

    Hey guys, just got a little darker than 1 ppm reading. Did about a 40% water change, all good now. Wondering though, I have an Ambulia in there that had a dead stalk on it, when I touched it it disintergrated. Cut it right back though. Could this be the mystery cause? Only got 2 BN plecs in the...

    New Bristlenose...

    Mate brought over a male BN today, once he settled into my tank he decided to dig himself a new cave under a corner piece of sandstone. The problem I have is that every time he goes in and out it is such a tight squeeze for him. Should I just leave him to it or introduce a new cave hoping he...
