    Corydoras not eating and breathing fast

    Hey, I've had this panda cory for 5 month and today I noticed that it doesn't want to eat and I think it's breathing very fast but I'm not sure. It's in a 40 l tank (10g) with an air pump. The aquarium is full of plants so I don't think there can be a problem with ammonia or anything else. Also...

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this website so please be patient with me! About 4 months ago my father bought 4 platy fish for our tank (along with a Plec, a few neon tetra and a betta) (I know it's not recommended to keep a betta with platys because or their tails but they get on fine).

    Fish Breathing Heavily

    Hello, new to this forum.   I have a 19l tank which I've had for about 5 months. I've got 3 X-Ray Tetras, 3 Red Platys and a Pleco.   Yesterday I 'renovated' my tank - added some new plants and some more gravel to stop them from uprooting. I took about 80% of the tank's water out so I could do...
