    I'm actually not sure if where I got her from qualifies as a chain store, so she actually probably healthy and just got harassed. I did get my males from PetCo though, I don't know where they get their stock from. But had to separate my females from my males until I get more females. I didn't...

    Is This Tank Okay For Live Bearing?

    :( theres a few that are lively but most of them are not. My males must have been harassing the female in the tank, poor girl.

    Is This Tank Okay For Live Bearing?

    Hello everyone, I've been preparing for my blue Fancy guppy I bought from Pet Quarters to give birth (she was pregnant when I bought her).

    Betta And Ottos.

    OKay, that's what I had thought too. I was asking anyway because I've heard of people having just two ottos for a 55 gal and similar. would there be any other way for me to get algae out of her tank IF it becomes a problem? (I have a 28 gallon bow front with 6 Otto cats and 4 Fancy guppies)
