    What Kind Of Goldfish Are These?

    Hi all, I was at a new LFS today just browsing around and maybe buy some plants and they had a massive tank with a bunch of "small goldfish" as they were labeled. I bought some plants and decided to buy these "small goldfish" Because they were $2 each... and there were HUNDREDS. I also saw in...

    Shaky Guppy Fry

    Hello   My two guppy females gave birth recently, the oldest had nearly 30 healthy guppy; a week later the second, a younger girl, had only a few, but I could only rescue two from the main tank since she was too fast to have her changed to a birthing tank.   For now, all the fry is living in a...

    When Can They Start Breeding?

    I've just started to get back into breeding guppies over the past year and I want to know as to what age female guppies can start breeding?   She would be a few months old and has already started to gain her Gravid spot. Still a little on the small side, considering her "mother" was a large...

    Kribs With Fry!

    I had a feeling there was going to be some breeding going on since the male was acting pretty aggressive and moving the gravel around. Really was not expecting it so soon! I have 8 fry already from about a month ago in a breeder in the same tank and growing dad by day. I can't tell how many...

    I have a 55 gallon tank with guppies, blood eyed tetras, danios, 2 yo-yo loaches, a school of neons, and one red wag platy. I was wondering what else I can feed my fish besides tetra color tropical flakes? I want a nice and health tank. Also, what can I feed guppy fry? As a future reference...

    Pregnant Molly. Help?

    One of the black mollies my LFS sold me was pregnant. I have no interest in keeping or raising fry and would like advice on what to do. The pregnant fish is also bullying every other fish in the tank, chasing them all over the place (no actual injury done yet, though sometimes it looks like...

    Betta Breeding Question

    I want to breed my two halfmoon Betta's. I have done all the bloodlines of both my female and male, I think the offspring would be quite good. I have asked the local pet store if they would like some Betta fish, they agreed.   Question is that, can I keep the male offspring together? (Obviously...

    This Is Gonna Sound Crazy

    So I've been monitoring my fry lately, and I'm unable to do frequent water changes since only my father is able to set up the siphon (I've tried, I'm not strong enough). So I've kinda been watching them grow, and up until now they were still kinda puny.   24 hours ago, I added some water into...

    Pregnant Swordtail

    Okay so here's the deal, my swordtail gave birth to like 10 fry yesterday morning, I had put her in the breeder box around 4am and I had taken the top off of the box and she jumped out around 6am and was swimming around normally and didn't seem like she was gonna drop the fry anytime soon, but...

    More Fry...

    So I thought I would keep you guys posted since the last posting rampage where I spammed updates (sorry, :P). Anyway, since then the fish got a 60% water change and I've really seen some growth but not sure if they've passed the effects of early stunting... I'm doing another water change...

    Swordtail Fry

    So I was originally keeping updates about the swordtail fry I have in the emergency section following the death of one of my swordtail adults, but since they're well over a month old now I figured I would move it to its own proper thread. Here's some footage (they're currently 41 days old, I...

    Panicking - Platy Just Gave Birth...

    Ok, platy just gave birth in community tank. I saw 3 fry - could be more that I didn't see. Then the platy kinda put herself into one of the plants, shook a few times and stopped moving. That was an hour ago. Now she's floating nose down but upside down in one spot-not moving her fins or...

    What To Do With Platy Fry

    I've got a bit of a problem. I added a new female platy to my tank about 6 months ago - she then had lots and lots of babies. It wasn't a huge problem because I would simply take them to my local Maidenhead Aquatics once they were big enough. HOWEVER... she's just had another batch (which I...

    Platy Fry Question

    It appears my platy gave birth last night. I don't see any live fry unless they are doing a really good job hiding in the floating plants.  What I do see is what appears to be dead fry and circular egg looking things that have an eyeball on it.  All of these are at the bottom of the tank in the...
