    Fat guppy?

    I have a very healthy 200l tank with a variety of fish who are all doing well. I've noticed that one of the ten guppies is very fat and I'm very concerned. I've had him for almost a year. I originally thought the guppies were female but it turns out they're all male, so he definitely isn't...

    White poop from platy?

    I have a question, my female swordtail eats a lot. She is about 3 inches long. She is rather fat, I'm not sure if shes pregnant or just overweight. I rescued her from a friend, she was living in a very small tank with a single plastic plant and two other very unhappy fish. A guppy and a platy...

    possibly gravid brilliant rasbora?

    Found this plump brilliant rasbora this morning and wondering if it's gravid, bloated, or possibly something else? It is breathing more rapidly than others, has red spots, and occasionally hangs out towards the top of the tank. Otherwise, it seems to be swimming fine; albeit more slowly than...

Please let me know what to do, I’m pretty new to the fish keeping life. I know my tank isn’t clean was in the process before I noticed the fish! They were my first...

    Odd looking Tiger Barb (Mouth Deformity)

    A couple of month ago my friend had to move and gave me his tiger barbs. I had already had tiger barbs so I knew what they needed. One in particular looked very ugly and had a big belly and my friend said that the fish had that belly since it was a baby. I let it go. Today in the morning it was...

    Fat and pale siamese algae eater

    Can someone tell me what is happening to this fish? It's acting normally but is really fat and pale. The other ones appear a bit fat as well, but not this bad.

    Help: Why Is My Fish Really Fat?

    Hi,    One of the fish in my garden pond is really fat and has been like this for about 3-4 weeks now but it's getting worse by the day. I don't know whether it's pregnant or there is something wrong with it. Not sure what kind of fish it is. It doesn't move much and sometimes faces down the way...

    Fat Or Pregnant Molly?

    So I bought a Molly from my LFS maybe 2 months ago, she's now looking quite large, but not huge and fairly square. I don't have any male mollies in the tank( community including a plecy, angelfish, platies and Pakistani loaches) though I have read they can store sperm/eggs. Can anyone tell me if...

    Are My Fish Fat? (Overfeeding?!)

    I started my tank about two months ago. I have the fish for... 4-7 weeks. When I bought them, they were "normal". Now, the molly (if it's a molly), my guppy and my tetras seem really fat compared to how they were. Until about two weeks ago, I thought it's ok, but now they seem to be a little bit...

    Hi guys - new to this forum and to fishkeeping. We bought our first tank in January this year (2012). We bought a 30L BiOrb (not the round space helmet looking one). It has a rock base (not sand) and various ornaments and plastic plants. We have a heater and use the air filter that came with it...
