    Sore lip?

    A few months ago, my mums friend had to move and couldnt take her fish. She had 2 platies and 1 guppy. They were in a tiny tank with a small plastic plant. I decided to keep them and they were very happy in a larger tank. I only have my female platy left now. But I was wondering, her bottom lip...

    Substrate is confusing.

    Hi, I have just got a 200l tank and I'm not sure what substrate to use. Some people say hydroton clay balls are best but others say the Seachem Fluorite is best. The tank I got comes with a ton of gravel which I would love to use but I'm not sure if it's good? I dont know the name of it as it...

    Strange Dwarf Gourami Behaviour

    So I've had a male and female Dwarf Gourami in a 60 Litre tank for 4 months and had zero issues, but the last couple of days I've noticed them on the floor of the tank and the female seems to just rest on the bottom almost panting. I thought that they were supposed to be mid to top dwellers in...

    Cuban Limia

    Hello everyone. I just recently purchased a couple female cuban limia fish from a petstore around me. I did some general research on them and was prepared for the buy. I’ve got my water parameters around where they like it as I am pretty sure that they are closely related to mollies. I guess my...

    Snail death

    So, a snail in my dad's tank died. It's been there for at least a year, I don't remember. However exact age is unknown since it was a river snail. I think that most likely one of the other fish ate it, but he insists it was old age. I highly doubt that because that's his go to whenever...

    Do pet stores carry such bad stock that you should quarantine?

    I've heard that you should quarantine new plants and fish. Is this accepted practice in the community? If so, pet stores are in the wrong for selling such dangerous stock enough to kill fish. If there's instances where they sell sick fish or harmful plants isn't that animal abuse and shouldn't...

    What fish would you like to eventually keep?

    These are mine. Angelfish. I like their body shape and the way it looks like they glide across the water. Discus. I've heard that these fish are very smart, and they look like colorful pancakes from their flat bodies. Pea pufferfish. It's cool that we can have freshwater small pufferfish as...

    For those of you that have read my other posts, I am not getting any more fish any time soon until I solve the situation with my current tank. This question is for the future down the line when I no longer face life threatening issues with fish. However, I will list all my current stocking with...

    So, this may be a bit of a random one, but has anyone had any weird / disappointing encounters at pet shops? The last handful of times I went into my local pet shop, I noticed a large amount of their fish were dead, so the last time I was there, I politely mentioned to them that I wanted some...

    help me.. please!

    Hi, I'm relatively new to keeping fish and although I haven't had any problems with establishing my tank (60L) - I've noticed that my filter (Superfish AquaFlow 200) is a bit too strong, and although it comes with a spray bar, it seems to be pushing air through creating lots of bubbles and my...

    Axelotle in container

    I went to an exotic reptile and amphibian shop. I saw some axelotles in Tupperware containers with some air holes in them. Is this normal for pet stores to keep axelotles like this? There was almost no room for movement and smelled absolutely terrible. Just wandering if this is reasonable...
