    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...

    Hi everyone, sorry if this isnt the right place to post, I’m looking for some advice. My variatus platy has been avoiding food for 3 weeks now, and prefers to stay at the top of the tank, near the bottom or swimming up and down the sides. When I say avoiding, I mean it literally swims in the...

    Surprise globra danio hybrids

    Hi there just thought I'd share these little beauties with all you fishy folk. I had the pair of adults in quarentine and when I moved them to my community tank I noticed some fry in the other tank. Their colour and patterns are still developing but they look better everyday.

    Neon danio hunchback

    So I’ve had this neon danio for maybe a month now and it was always tiny and looked so skinny. And now recently I noticed it’s getting a hunchback. I seen things online that say it could be a birth defect and he is probably in pain. I feel so bad and not sure what to do. Any help would be...

    Danio has a white patch

    Does anyone know what this white patch might be? It doesn’t look like ich. Is it a fungus? I recently (today) adjusted the temperature by 1 degree higher and didn’t notice it before that.

    Evil, Evil Zebra Danio's

    I have (or had) a group of seven that delightfully schooled very well. So much and at such speed that the rest of the fish in the tank just had to get out of the way. They are described everywhere as "peaceful schooling fish". Buried in a book I read that they are also known to be fin...
