    Breeding behaviors in female-only tank

    I completely agree :) I’ll just have to wait and see how big they eventually get. More pics of of the two fish in the cave. Looks like they did lay about 30 eggs. The older one leaves the cave often and the small one takes her place and fans. Didn’t happen when the large female had her other...

    Salt Uses In Freshwater Aquariums

    What type of salt should be used for a brackish tank? Aquarium salt, or reef salt? And, should the base water be RODI as in a reef tank, or is tap best?

    Fish cut in half but seems fine??

    When my danio died, I believe he had had dropsy. No other fish were affected. His whole belly was swollen and he had some red marks near the head and gills, I'll see if I took a pic.
