    My betta has had a swollen belly for the past couple of days. He's still swimming around, wanting to eat, and overall acting pretty normal.

Today as I...

    What to do with bloated male guppy

    This is what happens when I try to ensure that my otocinclus' get fed. This piggy (and his four endler friends) gorge themselves and now this guy seems in a pickle. Seems he can't poop. The only way I can make sure my ottos get fed is to distract the fish with a small piece of algae wafer or...

Well, almost perfect, since we had only 4 small fishes...
