    Is she likely to pass on her big tail to her offspring?

    My new guppy! She dropped some fry today but unfortunately perceived the moment of each birth as snack time. Luckily a few escaped. Her tail is larger then the male she is with, I’ve not seen a female with fins so big before.

    Dalmatian Molly Not Swimming

    Help! I just set up a tank less than a week ago with 5 female mollies. I’m new to this but it’s important to me that my fish are happy and healthy. One of my mollies seems off. She doesn’t swim around and stays in the top corner near the heater. My other 4 mollies seem fine and swim around. At...

    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...

    Kuhli Loaches?

    How many kuhli loaches should I get? I only have one currently, I was thinking 5 more? I'm pretty sure mine is a male, I dont want any babies. Should I get more males or will that cause fights? Can I get females and have no babies?

    Anyone know how to stop breeding?

    Hello! How can I house 6 rosy barbs without them breeding? I already have 1 male and 2 young females and I'm getting 3 more soon. The male has been chasing the females around quite a bit and I don't know if he's trying to breed or make friends. I definitely don't want them breeding. Apparently...

    Is my pregnant guppy about to give birth?

    I have had this female guppy for about 2 weeks and she's been pregnant since day 1. I just separated her into a birthing container but am unsure if she's actually about to give birth soon. Her belly seems to have that "shape" I've read about and her gravid spot has gotten very big over the last...

    Guppy Female Endler Protrusion

    Hello again! Does this look normal on my female Endler guppy? There’s like a protrusion there on her belly closer to her head than her anal vent. I haven’t noticed any behavioral changes in her tho and nothing drastic has changed over the last few days so I’m not sure what could have caused it...

    Platy looks female... sometimes

    I know how to tell the difference between a male and female platy. But this platy confuses me. It swims around like its a male, but that anal fin sometimes moves and spreads open like a female. It's hard to see, but there is a bit of a web between the body and the anal fin. The web isn't as...

    Is my guppy pregnant?

    Hi, I’m wondering if my female guppy is pregnant, she looks pregnant to me, but I could do with other people’s opinions. I’m just a bit skeptical because the previous female guppy I bought ended up dying 3 days after I got her. I was told she was pregnant from the store I got her but I’m pretty...

    Pregnant or not?

    Fish with light yellow tail- is this slightly albino? This fish has been growing larger by the day lately and is showing a similar shape to my pregnant guppy. I can’t see a gravid spot, this is why I’m wondering if it is albino as I have searched on the internet about this. Any help would be...

    Am I underfeeding my female BN Pleco? I give her 1/2 of a sera spirulina tablet every other day. I put the tab in front of her and she quickly gobbles it up. I target feed her and make sure the cardinal tetra in the tank with her don't steal it. She always finishes it in under a minute, does...

    How long does it take for a female betta to reabsorb eggs?

    My female delta is gravid. I have seen her breeding bars and her ovipositor is more prominent. I have been fasting her five days a week for two weeks and she has yet to drop or absorb her eggs.
