    Fat Female Honey Gourami

    I have one female and two male honey gouramis. I know this because one has become a pair and are constantly "flirting". Recently i noticed that the female is pretty fat. The male is not courting her and theres no bubble nest. I cant tell if its eggs, overeating, or parasites. Shes also...

    Help!! White Eyed Female Betta

    Help! I noticed tonight that my female betta has these white spots on her eyes... Everything I looked up said that it was because of bad water quality, but our water quality is fine... any other reason why she might be like this?? She's also more pale than usual, but looks otherwise healthy...

    Pregnant Swordtail... I think?

    I know nobody has answered, but I'm bumping this up because I'm very confused. She was looking very boxy, and we could finally see the dark black spot. We put her in the breeder, and in the morning there was just lots of poop, she wasn't boxy anymore, and the black spot was gone. We put her...

    Pregnant Swordtail... I think?

    She looks less "pregnant" now... perhaps she was just bloated?

    How do you get your Otto cats their algae wafers? My endlers are pigs!

    I have a 5 gallon with not so great filtration, and the algae wafers are usually all fully eaten in a day or two, so it shouldn't gunk up your tank. And well, your endless might be eating a lot but you still gotta feed your other fish!

    Help! Betta fry not eating microworms

    That's very strange. All of mine have taken to eating microworms. I know you've done your research and everything is probably correct, but I'm going to ask anyways. What size is the breeding tank? Did you test the water, if so, what is it at? (Nitrates, Nitrites, PH, Ammonia). Have you been...

    Betta Flaring At Other Fish - Community Tank

    That's what I'd figured, he's been separated and now lives with me until we can find him a good home. I wasn't sure since he didn't seem to be doing any other breeding behaviour.. I guess by adding the female, his hormones started acting up which would explain why he started acting the way he...

    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...

    How do you get your Otto cats their algae wafers? My endlers are pigs!

    I've had otos with my bettas, and my bettas have always loved algae wafers. I usually put in 2-3 wafers on opposite ends of the tank (one on the far left, one on the far right, and one in the back). That way, the other fish will focus on one or two, and the otos will be able to have one all to...

    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

    I've put sand in my own personal tanks before. It's possible that he put the water in too quickly, I can't remember, but shouldn't the filter have filtered it all out by now? If I had sand and there was some cloud in the water, I just ran the filter and it usually cleared it within a few hours...

    Companion for my betta?

    It depends on the betta, honestly. I've had bettas who've lived peacefully with cory catfish, otos, snails, guppies, tetras, and sometimes even as big of fish as mollies. But that was a rare case and I've NEVER seen a betta live with that many fish before. This guy was special. And even then...

    Cloudy Tank Water

    I'll take some filter media from my own tanks. I have about 4 of them hahaha. And all have always been healthy tanks. We'll try that, and hopefully it'll work. Thank you so much for the info!

    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

    Okay, thank you. We have coverage in the tank already, so maybe it will be okay. We've introduced other fish to the tank before and he didn't flare at them, so I just think it's odd he's decided to just go along and attack this female at random. But it is what it is, we will separate them if it...

    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...

    Betta Breeding Problem

    Was gone all day at work and came back home at 10pm to find that he's made an even bigger bubble nest but still chases her away, yet she still seems interested in him. He's not hurting her, just chasing her away. I took her out (hopefully that was okay) and will maybe start floating her again in...

    Betta Breeding Problem

    Alright, so I followed all the instructions. I've got a 10 gallon tank, about 6 inches with water. Bare bottom. Two live plants, and an area for the female to hide in. Heater at 26-28c and a filter (that is currently off). Male has built a bubble nest from the bubble wrap I put down to help him...
