    Oscar Nesting Behaviour?

    My 5-year-old fully mature Oscar has started an interesting new behaviour. He’s shoving gravel up one side of the tank and resting in the hole at the bottom of the tank (see pic). Went to vacuum the tank this morning and as I neared the depression he struck out and bit me! Never did any of these...

    Concerned About the Sex Ratio of Two Blue Rams

    Hello all, I've been keeping an aquarium for about a year now and so far, things have been going pretty well! But recently I splurged on a new tank setup and, after cycling was complete, decided to fill it with a bunch of neon tetras and a pair of blue rams. The local fish store (which has...

    So I had a 45 gallon freshwater tank . It has 2 electric blue acaras , 1 red severum and a pleco . My severum had been tormenting my EBA . I went to the local store and they told me my tank might just be too small. I found a great deal and got a new 70 gallon tank. I just did the transfer and...

    Help with Male Platy Fish

    I'm a new platy owner (and fish owner in general), and I want to make sure my platies won't kill each other. My roommate and I just got two platies to keep us company in our college dorm room, and we didn't notice that they were both male until after we had gotten the tank set up. They're in a 5...

    Buenos Aires Tetras- Aggression with Each Other

    So I have a 29 gallon tank. I only had 5 corydoras in it for a few months. I finally decided to get some buenos aires tetras. I got the 6 that was recommended to start with. While they were in their quarantine tank, they attacked one of the smaller ones. His tail got pretty much destroyed. I...

    What are my siamese algae eaters doing?? (Video attached)

    In my 55 gallon aquarium I have 2 siamese algae eaters (I now know I need more, but the store I bought them from said it'd be fine to start with 2; I'm currently stuck searching for a few more in the middle of winter with no local fish store or aquarium club). The 2 I do have, however, have been...

    Community Tank Advice Needed

    Hey everyone! I'm relatively new to this forum but was looking for some advice. I'm setting up a 55-gallon tank (48" x 13" x 21") and would like it to be a community tank. I've recently been really into schooling-tanks with many different kinds of schooling fish. For example, one fish keeper...

    Angels aggressive after mating

    I have a pair of angels that mated together in May and are now super aggressive towards one another. I'm not positive which is the male and female, but the one who hovered most over the eggs which I assumed was female is being bit and attacked by the assumed male. The pair hasn't had a history...

    Betta keeps killing snails

    My tank has a serious algae problem. The only place to put my betta tank was by a window, and now there is a constant film of algae covering everything. Now, I wanted to add a nerite snail to the tank to help eat some of the algae, but, after moving around for a day, he stopped moving and died...

    Blue Gourami Male to Female agression

    I am relatively new to keeping gourami, I’ve had my pair of blue gourami in my community tank for about 6 months now. Both make and female look healthy, colours are bright and they both come out to eat eagerly at feeding times. However, when they’re not feeding the female goes to the back of the...

    Aggressive Glo fish

    Hi everybody, I’m fairly new to properly managing freshwater fish/aquariums. I recently purchased a 60 gallon with 4 very young bala sharks (I’m aware they are going to need around 180 gal when they fully grow, this is temporary for them!) I decided to get a 4 glo fish to add to the tank because...

    Aggression all Around (platy)

    I have been having some trouble with platies in a 10 gallon tank. About four months ago I went out and got for platies just for fun because I was considering getting into fish keeping. At the time I did not know but I ended up discovering that two of the platies were male two of them were female...

    Male Ram attacking Female after eggs were eaten overnight

    I made some posts about my GBRs spawning recently. Basically this morning I turned on the light and all the eggs were gone (corys ate them most likely). But now the male is seeking out the female ram and chasing her - I can distract them with food and they leave each other alone for a few...

    Removing Eggs - Will it stop aggressive Rams?

    My GBRs recently spawned - but now they are stressing out all my other fish and actively seeking them out to chase them, even though they can't go anywhere. Will removing the eggs halt this territorial behavior until they next spawn?

    Pearl Gourami- Fin Rot from tail damage?

    My Opaline decided to turn on my poor Pearl and did a number on her tail. I’ve moved her to a separate tank to heal but now it seems like she is starting to get an infection on the left side. She is having a hard time swimming so I can’t get a good view of the left, but it definitely seemed more...
