    Neon Tetras Fighting

    Yesterday I noticed my 2 neon tetras having a bit of scrap. Today I noticed one of them with a damaged fin. Is this normal behaviour ? Or could this be down to the fact that there is only 2 of them ? I did start with 10, about 2 years ago. but sadly lost 8 of them over time. Also i have...

    Electric blue rams acting weird!

    I’ve had these 2 Electric blue rams for just under a month and they are swimming closely together in a weird pattern, head butting each other and squaring up. I asked for a pair but I'm guessing they are both males. Can someone try and gender these and explain what they are doing. Thankyou

    In my 55 gallon aquarium I have 2 siamese algae eaters (I now know I need more, but the store I bought them from said it'd be fine to start with 2; I'm currently stuck searching for a few more in the middle of winter with no local fish store or aquarium club). The 2 I do have, however, have been...
