    Help! Guppies Staying on Bottom and Refusing to Eat

    About two weeks ago I purchased three male guppies. I put them in a 3 gallon tank with a interior power filter and preformed a 25% water change about every 2 weeks. Everything seemed to be going just fine until yesterday one of them got stuck in the filter and died. Now I am starting to notice...

    Colder water for guppies?

    I have 5 guppies and they are living in a 70l tank. I have a 200l already set up, with no fish in it. I have done lots of tests and the water is exactly the same as the 70l (uk). The guppies are currently living with 3 rosy barbs (rehoming them soon). I didn't realise rosys were so aggressive...

    Guppies staying at the bottom?

    All five of my guppies are staying at the bottom of the tank, they havent lost any colour. I've only noticed them doing this today, I have a feeling I've over stocked the tank. I am trying to set up the 200l as quickly as possible but things are taking a while to arrive. Is there a way to...

    White Bump on my Guppies Head

    Does anyone know what this might be/how to treat it? I noticed this white spot on my guppies head a few days ago. I quarantined her and added salt. She is still alive and swimming, however, the bump hasn’t changed size or shape. Any help would be appreciated.

    Guppies at top of tank

    Hi, I have a cycled 15 gallon planted tank. Today I added 6 guppies that I bought today. After 4-5 hours I added in my male Betta from my 5 gallon tank. Now my guppies are at the top of the tank (not dead.) Is it possible that I’ve added to many fish at a time? Is there anything I can do?

    Too many guppies

    A couple months ago, I got 20 free normal feeder guppies from someone on facebook. They were not a problem at first and my betta eats most of the babies, but they poop a lot and steal all of the food. I posted that I had some guppies I didn't want on facebook but nobody wanted any. What should I...

    Why do my fish keep dying

    Hi, I seem to be having an issue with my tank and so far every fish I’ve got has died after a few weeks. I have cycled the tank, checked all levels are ‘good’ and the only issue I can think of is that our water is hard with a PH of 8. I have had two bettas (not at the same time) but after...

    Is my pH too high? Help please

    Hello :) I have a planted 24l tank with four male fancy guppies. The pH in the tank is 8.2, I have read that guppies like it between 6.8 and 7.6. I have a bottle of API pH adjuster, it says 1ml for 38l but it doesn't say how much that actually lowers the water by. I know that sudden changes in...

    Bent spine?

    Hello! I have been keeping guppies since May 2021 and my first batch of fry are now juveniles/semi-adults. I remember when they were no bigger than a grain of rice!🤩 Anyway, I have noticed a couple fish have an interesting body shape. They are wonky and not the smooth torpedo shape like the...
