    Black Molly stuck in labor?

    I have a black Molly fish that gave birth to only one fish last week. I am home all day and have been keeping an eye on her and I haven't seen any other fry. She is acting the same as she was right before she went into labor. She's either wagging her tail fast near the heater or swimming around...

    Endler females give birth a few fry at a time?

    About a month ago, I got a few female cobra endlers from another state...two fully mature, two less than. The two mature ones gave birth to a handful of fry. I don't have any mature males in this tank. Now I see a few more little fry. I know they can hold onto sperm for several months, but...

    So we discovered during a water change 3 little fry - presuming they are mollies Weve googled how to save them (i know a lot have probably been eaten) and found a 'fry trap' using a bottle with food in and a small hole for them to get into but so far no luck 😔 Ive ordered a hatchery type...

    Help, Emergency fry tank setup

    So I’m in a bit of a pickle. I’m wondering if someone can give me some advice. I have a pregnant swordtail in my 20gallon community tank and I also have a pair of (what I believe to be) sunset thicklipped gourami’s, which up until yesterday were in my community tank. However a couple of fish had...

    Platy fry 2 weeks old

    Beginner’s luck? My coral platy gave birth to 35 little ones! They’re now two weeks old, very cute and still super tiny ❤️ I keep them in a separate tank, but how long is it recommended to keep them in a safe area? 8 weeks? Btw: I don’t plan on keeping them myself as my tank is too small for that.

    Very pregnant molly!

    Hi there, I believe my molly is extremely close to giving birth. I am just about to separate her from the main tank, but want to ensure it isn’t too soon. What do you guys think?

    Close call story with fry

    I was doing a water change when I noticed one of my platy fry in the bucket. I had already dumped out most of the water. I probably didn't notice him at first because water isn't the only thing that gets sucked out (Gunk, fish poop, my sand if I'm not careful). Since the bucket was nearly empty...

    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...

    Breeder net fail??

    So, I had several babies that were living in a breeder net for a couple weeks. Today after I had added a new fish, there's only one baby left in the net. Meaning the rest either escaped or died. But I didn't think they were small enough to fit through the holes for that to happen. I don't...

    Surprise explosion of fry!

    So I've been working on my newest project which is a 75 gal planted tank over the past few months. So far, everything is going absolutely wonderfully and apparently a little too much so! Currently, I have two adult gold gouramis (both male and female) and woke up the other day to an explosion...

    Hello! I have 3 female platy fish living with a male platy, and one of the females is very very large. Could someone please help identify if this is a pregnancy, and if it is when she will give birth? I have had pregnant fish but I miss the minnows and they get eaten :( The male is aggressively...

    Is she big enough to not get eaten or should I put her in the net?

    My platies had babies, idk if I want to keep them all but this is definitely one, I want to keep. Should I throw her in the breeder net for safety? I do have places for them to hide but despite this the fry are out in the open a lot. I would like her to free roam, so it doesn't slow her growth...

    Update on my guppy fry - now 3 months old!

    Here is an update on my 3-month-old guppy fry from my previous post. Because of their rapid growth, you can already see their stunning colors. Most of the males have long black tails and blue shine on the body area with a hint of orange. Others are completely black with a hint of blue on their...
