    Abusive Guppies?

    Well, to start things off, I have great news. My molly fry is growing exponentially and I've started giving it little bits of brine shrimp when the others get a frozen tablet to feast on. I've also found another baby in the tank, an orange one that resembles a platy and it's now in the breeder...

    Fish Won't Stop Chasing Reflection

    Very Odd Question About Sailfin Molly

    I've had my Black Sailfin Molly since 24th Dec 2012 now and it shows some rather odd behaviour. Basically it chases my platies around for ages trying to eat their poo. It's not nipping at them or showing any aggression, it just seems to be after their waste. Is this normal as I've not seen any...
