    Help! My platys are paralyzed and sink!

    So I recently got 12 fry from a friend and they are about 2 months old, varying in size. I have 4 of the tiniest ones in a 5 gallon, the rest in a 20 gallon. About 3 days ago I noticed a few were missing and couldn't see them. I thought they were just hiding but then today I noticed some just...

    Baby fish?!?!

    i just bought fish yesterday and when I woke up this morning there were 7 little fish swimming away from my betta (for obvious reasons) I'm not sure where these fish came from or what kind of fish they are, one day is certainly not enough time for eggs to hatch. Can anyone tell me why? Also, I...

    Question on "Culling"

    I'm not quite sure how to put this really? I have guppies, and of course, WAY too many fry! However, I am attempting to grow them out, in multiple tanks, separating sex, feeding properly, correct water quality parameters (0/0/10), etc., so I can trade them for a small bit of store credit. I...

    Betta Identification

    Can anyone help me identify this little guy? I was thinking plakat but his tail is getting pretty long, so maybe veiltail? He’s only about 1.5 inches now and I’ve had him for over a month. Petco was selling him as a ‘Baby Boy’ but I’m not even sure of that. Any ideas or speculation would be...
