    7 week old Endler feedings

    I have 10 Endlers that are almost 7 weeks old now. How many times a day should they be eating? When they were born I saw several times a day so I have been doing 3 times a day but don’t know how long to do that for or if that’s to much? Thanks!

    Does my Red Rili Shrimp have a disease?

    So a few days ago I noticed my shrimp has some yellowing under his shell. At first my thought was it’s the fish food but after looking at it I guess that’s not possible because of where it is? Maybe this is a silly question but I just want to make sure he is ok and doesn’t have a disease.

    Cardinal Tetra pregnant?

    So I have some tetras that’s I haven’t had for long and one is looking pretty fat... lol from what I see online it’s hard to tell the male and female apart so I don’t know if it’s a female. And if it is a female I also read it was hard for tetras to spawn in a normal tank?

    What type of snail?

    So I have a tiny tank I have been wanting to shut down since it’s empty but I did notice a snail in it so I let it run. I don’t see any other snails and it’s been in there at least 2-3 weeks and it’s grown fast I think. Does anyone know if it’s a good or bad snail? If it’s good I’ll save it and...

    Good or bad snail?

    So even though I tried hard to keep snails out of my tank.. I see that two have made it in. I have been keeping them out because I just don’t know if they are bad or good.

    Endler male/female ratio

    I have a small tank just 3.5 gallons and had no intention of breeding. But when I wanted to buy another livebearer to add to my existing male red fire endler the store would only sell me a pair. So now I have 2 males and 1 female. Will this be a problem to have the 3 together in one tank?
