    Can someone help?

    So it's been about 20 years since I last saw a pregnant platy. Can someone please confirm for me that I am correct in thinking this girl is carrying babies? And if so, any clues as to how long she may have left before she births some tiny fry?

    Trio of Neolamprologus Caudopunctatus

    So, when I was at Fishtoberfest I picked up a trio of N. Caudopunctatus (Red Fin Shell Dweller). They have been in the tank for less than a week. I added the Rift Lake salts according to directions on the container. They are set up in a 29 gallon, and I am hopeful I have at least 1 m/f pair...

    Should I breed out this Guppy Strain?

    Does anyone find these two appealing? I’m trying to decide if I should breed out a strain of these. They were a really random coloration out of all the cobra tailed ones I have. Unless it was the other female who spawned these. Idk I think a feeder male mustve crossed with one of the cobra...

    German Blue Ram female is hiding

    I've kept fish since I was a kid but seriously started looking into it about 3-4 years ago. I've got experience with tropical community and betta tanks but I'm quite new to owning GBR. I recently got a GBR pair (2-3 weeks ago) and since day 1 they've been absolutely amazing. They're still quite...

    My lfs had two more of their firemouths pair off and breed. Here is the pic I caught of them. This is the 2nd pair so far from that shipment, the first was sold as a breeding pair and the customer also got all of the fry.

    How to Breed Sterbai Corydoras???

    Hi everyone, I have a 75 gal tank I would love to get some Corydoras for. It will be at 82-84 degrees F so I probably get Sterbai Corydoras. However I would really like a big school and I noticed their relatively high price. I have a 20 gal tank that I can pretty much modify in any way and I was...

    Help me build my dream planted German Blue Ram breeder tank

    I have never done a planted tank before but have been reading about it and want to go all in on a 10-20 gallon for my desktop. I work from home and can, fortunately, do whatever necessary to keep up with routine maintenance. I am a chemist and like to stay on top of chemicals, water changes...

    Are these neon tetras mating??

    Hi! I have never been breeding fish, and that wasn't my intention either. I was just keeping 10 neon tetras in my aquarium, and I from what I read online, neon tetras needed special conditions to breed. But then I saw this, and I am wondering if they are breeding after all? If so, what do I do...

    Is my Kribensis still breeding?

    Hi there, I recently bought my kribs a coconut and straight away they took to it, spending a couple of days digging it out and guarding it. The female then spent about 2 days in it constantly apart from when the male chased off other fish, she would come out to guard it and then go back inside...

    Breeding Zebra Danios Glofish + Tetras in clay pots

    Hi there. I’m a newbie in this. I keep my fish in huge clay pots —there to get rid of the mosquito larvae— but now I’ve got into it and want to breed them. Guppies and Swordfish aren’t a problem at all but I cannot manage with Danios and Tetras. I know these two do it through eggs so I keep...
