The tank is a 60 gal with some live plants. I’ve got 2 penguin 350 marineland filters on...

    The best brand for fungus medicine that won’t kill my elephant snails???

    My fish recently had a bit of a stress with a water change after I left my tank a little too long before cleaning. My water is perfect but I think it stressed them out a bit.

    Are these Muppies or just XL Guppies?

    So a friend close to me bought some tanks that came with fish, which he didn't want. I said I would take them off his hands. Ot was a mixed lot of neon tetra and supposedly guppies, but two of these female are absolutely huge. I suspect they are actually a crossbreed, and therefore infertile...

    Guppy - sudden growth on belly

    Hi guys, New to the forum here. introduced 4 x guppies to a new tank (around 2 weeks since set up) today, and suddenly noticed one has a growth from the belly. Images attached.

    Betta eats a spider?? x'D

    Here's my beautiful betta. My son named him Goldie. 🤷‍♀️ This morning I went in to check on him and noticed he was investigating/pecking at something on the gravel. I was shocked to see it was a spider! A drowned spider and its abdomen looked crushed. I quickly took it out so my betta wouldn't...

    Fish identification

    I recently fished a peculiar fish out of a pond near my house. I’m not a hundred percent sure what it is. I think it’s a pumpkin seed, half of its tail is black so I put it in my mollie tank.

    Pink Zebra Danios with Rosy Barbs ?

    (Dont mind my bad English) I have 7 Rosy barbs in my 40gal tank who are 1.5 - 2.5 inches in sizes. They were living with a gourami(3 spot).

    Betta Compatibility for 40 gallons tank

    I got 7 rosy barbs in a 40 gallon all of them are of 2-3inchs in size with a 3 spot gourami. The issue is that 3 spot has grown too large so I am thinking of replacing it with a betta(male). My Rosy barbs have never nipped the fins of the gourami and 40gal seems right for this many fish. The...
