    Female betta tankmates

    I have a 30 gallon tank with 12 celestial pearl danios, 12 harlequin rasboras and 6 kuhli loaches, can I add a female betta? I understand that CPD are very shy fish and I don't want to stress them out by the betta being there. I also don't want the betta to be stressed by all the small fish...

    Missing Danio

    My second last remaining Zebra Danio has been dying over the past four-ish days and I thought he was under a piece of wood. However I have looked everywhere and he just is not there! This happened about a year ago and I never found a corpse. What should I do?

I grew up around fish tanks so I have basic knowledge but wanted to join a community of more experienced fishkeepers who can help me to identify issues and give information to resolve those issues. I am a huge animal lover of all...

    How long is the danio going to live after this incident?

    I took a bit of time to re-gather myself. Please don't laugh at what I did but I was panicking. I have danios. They jump all the time, so I had my lid closed. I was doing a water change and went to get water. Meanwhile, I forget to close the lid, and a danio jumped out despite the water level...

    70 Litre High Stocking Ideas

    So I currently own a 70 litre high tank with approximate dimensions of 60x30x(40 or 50?), which is around 18.5 US gallons. The tank is currently holding 9 platies without a heater, though I do have one available if need be. As I’m planning on getting rid of (rehoming) 4+ of the platies due to...
