I placed it in my fry tank and I now have 5 water wisteria plants. 3 large and 2 small. I love them and want to move the three large ones to my 29 gallon. Will they start to die when...

    Molly having fry and... laying eggs?

    I have a female chocolate molly who started having fry tonight. I added lots of hiding places and floating plants for the fry. One of my males seemed to be harassing my female so I was keeping a close eye on her to make sure he didn't stress her too much. I noticed every time she had a few fry...

    Question about water changes

    I'm just wondering, whenever my LFS or any pet store asks me about water changes when I get my water tested, they freak out when I say I do 75% water changes weekly. I always do 75% weekly water changes because I thought it was good for my fish and they all do well with large water changes. Why...

    So my brother keeps a betta in a 3.5 gallon heated and filtered tank. He was the one caring for the fish. He feeds omega one betta food. He is supposed to do 75% weekly water changes.

    dying platy :(

    I have had a panda platy for just over a week now. I had my water tested. 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 8 nitrate.

    assasin snail

    I got some hitchhiker bladder snails on a plant. I have found quite a few in my 29 gallon. I really don't enjoy small snails in my 29 gallon since I hatched mystery snails once and since then I hate having small snails in that tank. I thought about getting an assassin snail but would that harm...

    bladder snails

    In my 10 gallon fry tank I found 3 bladder snail hitchhikers. I don't really mind them and I personally find them pretty cute. A few days ago I found 2 bladder snail egg clutches. I left them alone and tonight I noticed both of them are gone. Have the eggs hatched? If so why can't I see any baby...

    water changes

    I change 50% of my water weekly. I went to Petco today to have my water tested. It came back 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and 8 nitrate. The person testing my water said that wasn't good and was surprised my fish weren't dying. I was told not to do weekly 50% water changes but to instead do a 20% water...

    fish game

    I thought of this game and I don't know if it's already a game or not but I thought I would share it. Someone takes a picture of a fish it can be a fish you own, one from an aquarium, one from your LFS or any where you find a fish but then crop the picture so that only a small part of the fish...

    baby fish

    I have about 20 molly fry and a bunch of cory fry who are 2 months old now. They are all big enough to be given to my LFS and I need to give them to my LFS soon so I have room for the other 61 molly fry I collected a few days ago. I have just grown so attached to each of them and I feel so bad...

    Liquid Fertilizer

    What kind of liquid fertilizer should I get for my 29 gallon tank? There are so many brands and types that it's a little overwhelming. I need one that won't hurt snails or scaleless fish. Thanks in advance! I already use Seachem root tabs for my root feeders.

    color changing molly

    I have had a female dalmation molly for 5 months now and last night I was watching her and thought she looked different. I got on my phone and looked at pictures of her from the first few months I had her. She has completely changed color since those pictures. Is this normal for some mollies?
