    What's wrong

    My white guppies, Marshmallow, is swimming in one spot on the bottom of the tank, uninterested in food or tank mates. Any ideas what could be the matter? Tail damage is old from a case of fin rot which was treated and seemed to start growing back slowly.

    What is this? Is it harmful? How do I get rid of it?

    This white stuff showed up the other day, I think it was maybe the day after a water change? Does anyone know what it is or how to get rid of it? I first noticed it on the plants (none of the plants are new) and now it seems to be on the substrate too. My tank currently has 3 old guppies (I...

    Injured male guppy.

    I have a male betta fish in a 11ish gallon tank and today I bought 2 male guppies to put in there with him, there's plenty of hiding places and live plants so I thought it would be fine but I've come home and one of the 2 has his dorsal fin bitten off (I'm assuming) and his tail is shredded...

    Needing help A.S.A.P!

    So I have a small shrimp colony in my 30 gal. I was wondering if I could house Cherry Barbs and some Fancy Guppies. If so, how many of each do you think. My tank could be considered heavily planted, my filter is established well, and I have a good amount of experience in the hobby. Thank you.

    Guppies, unsure of behavior and sex?

    I'll put a little background first, as I am sure it would be asked: Recently, on Valentine' Day, my wife and I bought two Guppies (labeled as Cobra Guppies in the store), and a cherry shrimp for a small 3.5 gallon tank for my 4 year old, to see if he would like fish. We had the tank hidden...

    Male or female guppy?

    Hi I'm just wondering how to tell if a guppy is a male or female? I got two guppies from the pet shop today and was told that they are both males. After taking to a friend she said that The lighter (pink/white) coloured one is a female. Thanks in advance!
