    Hi there, I own a feather fin syno about 7 inch long. I’m worried that he isn’t getting enough food.

    Crab [not super urgent]

    Hi, Yesterday I purchased a crab from a good aquatics shop (Sweet Knowle Aquatics) and they told me that this crab would be quite a peaceful community creature. So I got it acclimatized into my tank and out it in. I noticed that it was quite confident and would eat food really quickly - unlike...

I now have (some died) 4 guppies (1 female, 3 males), two balloon mollies (pair), two mickey platies (pair) and a yellow moon platy. Let's call him Yellow.

    Goldfish Are Not Eating Any Food

    This is kind of a longer story, sorry:   A while ago my LFS show orandas had a massive spawning and I jumped on this and purchased 8 oranda babies. I bought them and they were still brown/black and about a quarter inch long in size.   I bought them about a week ago. I split them up, I put three...

    Does My Violet Goby Look Like He's Doing Okay?

    Hi guys,   My violet goby was displaying some signs of ammonia poisoning, but I've been working pretty hard to combat that. I think he's doing much better now, and hasn't been going to the surface anymore. He's also eating regularly. I recently took this video of him, does he look like he's...
