    I need help

    I have a u1 in my shrimp tank. I found there was quite a large circular hole down the middle of the sponge so put some media in an organza bag and popped it in there. It cycled nicely and I've had no problems with it since Sent from my HTC Desire 626 using Tapatalk

    Can fish survive a 1-month period?

    I would imagine it would depend on the tank but I wouldn't recommend it. Are you planning on going away? Sent from my HTC Desire 626 using Tapatalk

    Thinking Of Breeding Guppies

    Also they can drop anywhere between 20-200 fry at a time so bear that in mind! Sent from my HTC Desire 626 using Tapatalk

    Thinking Of Breeding Guppies

    I actually do breed these, as a side job so to speak, so may be able to be of some help. When putting the males and females in together you will want 3 females to each male otherwise he will harass the single female and she can get stressed and sick. When thinking about selling them on you...

    Hi there, Need some advise plz. Large fish with swim bladder

    Hi Ruby, have you got the number for the ammonia levels? Unfortunately Nick is correct in saying that the tank is overstocked. I wouldn't keep more than 1 fancy goldfish in a 60l tank, and in fact I'd be aiming more toward the 100l just for the 1. The reasons are that they get big, like 8...

    Fancy Guppy Eggs?

    Agreed, that fish is definitely male so was never pregnant. Female guppies have a triangular anal fin. I've never had experience with lesions but from reading other people's I would treat with an antibiotic to prevent infection and hope it heals Sent from my HTC Desire 626 using Tapatalk

    Sick Guppy

    Oh, and to help prevent the females getting harassed too much you could add an extra couple to spread the attention and make sure there's plenty of things to break the line of sight in the tank Sent from my HTC Desire 626 using Tapatalk

    Sick Guppy

    Males will harass the poor girls just because they're frisky little fellas. Have you tested the tank for ammonia/nitrite? It could be that this girl is weaker than the other fish and felt the spike harder. I personally would keep her isolated as she may get bullied while she's vulnerable, I...

    Sick Guppy

    I agree, definitely female. They have a triangular anal fin whereas males don't. Along with water parameters have you added anything new to the tank recently? Sent from my HTC Desire 626 using Tapatalk

    Peacock tank

    I haven't narrowed down the ones I want just yet, might look to go for the more blue variety as my other tank is oranges and yellows. Going to have a read up on the haps and see which ones I like the look of. What about plants? I have Amazon's & various moss types in my other one Sent from my...

    Peacock tank

    Just to double check, would that be 3 groups of haps? I want to go slow with this one to make sure I get it right. I don't mind too much on the colour front, I want to make it as natural for them as possible Sent from my HTC Desire 626 using Tapatalk

    Begginer, Help

    As said, this happens in newer tanks. I've spent the morning wiping it off the inside of my livebearer tank after it went through a mini cycle. Wipe it off gently and keep an eye to see if it comes back, if so it could be an organics imbalance Sent from my HTC Desire 626 using Tapatalk

    Has my albino lost its whiskers?

    Hi, it does look like they've worn down. This would be because you have a gravel substrate and corys need soft sand to sift through for food. I'm not sure if they will grow back sorry Sent from my HTC Desire 626 using Tapatalk

    Peacock tank

    Hi guys, I'm thinking of setting up a tank for peacocks and just wondered if anyone has any advice from previous experience. I'm thinking a 55g with sand substrate and lots of rock scaping, what about plants? Our water is hard here so I'm working with 282ppm for gh (based on info from water...

    betta body rot (i think?)

    Tap water contains a lot of minerals which are essential for the aquarium whereas the cycle is there to ensure that it can deal with the waste they produce so the fish don't get ammonia poisoning. Doing your water changes removes excess nitrates and remineralises the tank [emoji4] Sent from...
