the other inhabitants are other swords, platys,a serpea tetra,
red tailed shark,two placostomus,neon tetra.
i have noticed as i have put a couple more swords into the tank that the red tail shark is more aggresive.
however not all the time.
i woke up this morning to find a swordtail dead floating on the water she had a round red mark on the side of her body and so it would appear to be skin like white tissue hanging from her body. with observation i have found a a large white platy with similar symptoms the white marks however...
i havent seen her poop for a little while. she stays in the bubbles all day and i fear she is not eating. ive noticed a small grey/ white patch underneath her left fin. i read about shimmies and that said they rock back and forth but she just literally stands nose up in the water.
i havent put...
i have one silver swordtail who has been acting very strange.
she stands upright between plants,rocks and on glass shaking from side to side rubbing her body.
is this normal or is there something i should no about?
i am still here believe it or not ive just been working very hard and now have...
ive a problem with only my neon tetras and my 2 placostomus
(i think thats how you spell it) for no reason the tetra lost all their colour they went white. and for the other they aint looking too good neither now and then they go a very red colour and they look sick :what: :what:
oh please dont say that i know its a pain in the a*** but i do like swordtails and platys they are so cute,ahhhhhhh
i am only a begginer fish keeper so perhaps i will end up being a midwife ha ha ha :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
in your dreams mate.
the fungus on his back is only small at the moment but i can tell you he hides away alot and has lost quite a bit of weight and i havent seen him eat for a while. :what: :what:
the temperature of the tank is 78 degrees. oh my god!!!!!!
the problem is that the filter the frys have at the moment is no good so we were going to buy a new one. we are going to change the gravel as a bit more is needed. but the water is accessible.
there is going to be new gravel and i hope this is not going to be a problem and the water is going to...
i have just bought a 3ft tank which is 18inches deep and the tank they live in at the moment is only 13 inches deep i was wondering if this would be o.k for my frys as they are growing now and i wanted to put them in a new set up is this safe?
i have three swordtails that are male two of them are acting very angry and bullying the third swordtail they are not letting this poor fish come out of his corner if he does he gets whacked, any ideas? he has just recently got a fungus on top of his back i guess this is because he is severly...
i was wondering if i could use snail chemicals with the fry i have just recently seen them appear i would like to get rid of the nuiscance but dont want to harm the fry any suggestions? :what: :what: :what:
i was wondering if anyone had any reccomendations of plants i could put in my tank perhaps some nice big bushy ones that could create lots of hiding places for my fish as they are beginning to get bullied.
