    How will I ever know if my fish are dead?

    Hi I’ve recently set out my African cichlid tank in a way that there are rocks everywhere for the fish (ocean rock). If one of my fish die for any reason while in or behind the rocks, how will I ever know? And also won’t this just cause ammonia without me even knowing? Advice please?

    I am a TERRIBLE fish owner- A lesson learned

    I have an Aqualear filter for my 29 gallon tank. I recently lost a number of fish when (I think) my assistant forgot to treat one if the large buckets of water - a number of them just dropped dead at the same time. Only the Pleco's survived. I ordered online (for a fortune) a number of...

    Was my guppy fish suffering from disease?

    Hi, I’m wondering if I can have some opinions on what really happened to my female guppy! I bought her 3 days ago from a fish store and was told she was carrying, and would give birth to fry soon. However, upon observing her for the past two days I must say I was wondering whether she really was...
