    Ram Bloated and Sitting at top of tank

    My female Mikrogeophagus Ramerizi is looking very bloated, and she’s only sitting at the top of the tank with her body tilted towards the surface. All other fish in the tank are fine. Could this be because I’ve started using frozen foods more often, or those little tabs you stick on the side of...

    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?

    Rehoming Necessary?

    I was told a while back that my gourami choice was not the greatest and that I should reconsider it. About four more gouramis later, I realize I might have a small addiction to the little fellas Now I'm wondering, is it really that bad? Here's what I've got: -2 Snakeskins (one is a nice 6...

    Gourami Help!

    Hi.   I have a newly set up tank - RIO 125L JUWEL. I have had it doing a fishless cycle for 3 weeks, adding purebomb aquarium balls on two occasions. Today I added fish at 4pm (10pm now) - 2 pearl gouramis, 2 pink kissers and 2 blue male dwarf gouramis. The fish were transported all of 2 minutes...

    Electric Blue Jack Dempsey Growth Journal :)

    Hi I know I've started a similar thread under the name ebjd journey but it seems this is a more appropriate place to put it. I purchased this fish in late March 2014, I saw one of the local importers put an ad up on facebook,I've always dreamed of owning one but could never find them in my...

    Tough Little Rams

    So when I was researching blue rams before I picked up my first pair about a year ago, I read they were sensitive, skittish, and easily bullied. All in all a frail delicate fish. After breeding them in a 10 gallon, I decided to try some out as members of a 50 gallon community.   They were the...

    Blue Phantoms And Zombies?

    So I'm thinking about merging tanks. But the main thing I'm worried about is how my L70 Zombie pair and my L128 Blue Phantom males are going to get on together. I also have 2 L260's, although they aren't very big at the moment - the largest is barely 2 inches. At the moment they are all very...

    My Bettas And They Finally Have Names!

    I finally named these guys Kratos and Hades! Pretty much guess they came from God of Wars game series and the names do seem to fit them both.    Here is Kratos. A blue veil tail. (Pictures don't do either fish justice they are much prettier.)     Here is Hades. He's a red spade tail.     and...

    Jack Frost

    I love looking at pictures of different animals - and especially bettas as I can't think of a single one that isn't beautiful.   I figure I can't be the only one that likes looking at pictures just because, so I am sharing the pics I've taken of Jack. My children named him Jack Frost because of...

    My Neon Blue Goby Won't Eat!

    I bought a neon blue goby from Jack's Aquarium about a month ago. Hearing these guys are herbivores I bought some green seaweed for him(did not like that the first ingredient in any algae wafers was fish meal...). I have yet to ever see him eat and it looks like he is getting thinner. Should I...
