    Dead Molly

    3 Guppies dead, is this a disease?

    So two nights ago I realized that one of my guppies had died. I didn’t see anything wrong and I figured that it was just of old age or something since he was an old fish.

    shubunkin is sitting at the bottom of tank

    Hi everyone, My shubunkin goldfish has swim bladder. I’ve read a lot about treatments and solutions already. How would you feed him if he doesn’t eat the peas? Would you hold him out of the waters and force feed? Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks!
