    Guppy pregnant again?

    Female guppies will always have a gravid spot. Female guppies can also have multiple batches of fry from only mating once.

    Swordtails....beginners question

    Why not go with a group of male soward tails? They are usually prettier and not as large as the females (so that means you could have more) plus there would be no risk of fry.

    fish randomly dying please help

    Hi! i'm sorry you are having trouble with your fish dying :( As stated before a 20 liter tank is not enough space for any fish except bettas, which even then prefer larger tanks.

    Need Your Advise for my Sunburst Platy

You may not know this, but livebearers are cannibals and will eat their fry if they can catch them. So your best bet is to leave...

    Question about platies and swordtails

    Platy fry help!

    Inbred fry have a higher chance of deformed spines and death soon after birth........ that being said almost every fish you buy from the pet store is inbreed. That's how breeders make strains. It's just the way it works. If you don't want more fry then yes you should separate them.

    What size tank should I keep an African dwarf frog?

    I kept two in a 10 gallon tank and they lived for about a year. I had no idea what I was doing at the time because I hadn't found TFF yet. So I have no idea if my tank was the right size for them.
