    Betta ID?

    What Betta is this? It was sold as a halfmoon but it doesnt look like a halfmoon to me, possibly a veiltail or a delta?

    Female bettas..

    Can female bettas live alongside other fish (eg Guppies?). I've heard they can live in groups of female bettas, but don't know about living with other fish.

    Brine Shrimp as food

    I'm considering making a brine shrimp hatchery to raise brine shrimp and feed them to my fish, but I don't know anything about hatching them, raising them, tanks suited to them, etc. If anyone has any knowledge on brine shrimp, please shed some light about it to me!

    Guppy Tail Emergency!!

    I was mid way through a water change when my curious Male Fancy Guppy decided to see what was inside the tip of the siphon - he ended up getting sucked back in so I immediately stopped the siphon and he got out safely, but not unscaved. Sadly about half of his tail was ripped off :-(. Will it...

    Feeding while away

    I'm going away for 4 days soon and I wasn't too concerned about my other fish, as I knew that they could go for a while without food, but my 2 female guppies have just dropped a total of 17 fry. How should I go about feeding them while I am away? Would it be ok to just put some extra Java Moss...

    Pleco Fry

    Guppy Food

    Is it ok to feed guppies Mosquito Larvae/Chopped Earth Worms? Or is it better to feed them brine shrimp/blood woms. I'd like to feed them food that is extremely rich in nutrients to hopefully produce a decent amount of fry.

    Pregnant Guppy

    How far off do you all reckon she is from dropping her fry? I have a decently planted tank and plan on netting out the fry into a breeder box, after about 2 weeks I plan to move them into a 10L-15L for them to grow big enough to not be eaten.
