    New Tank Mate(S)?

    As I type this one of my beloved guppies is dying. I bought the poor guy and an adult and he was in pretty rough shape. I'm surprised he made it 8 months in my tank.   My plan right now is to fill his place with another male guppy, but I was wondering if there would be any other good tank mates...

    Plecos In A 10 Gallon

    I currently have a ten gallon tank with three adult male guppies in it. I've had the tank set up with fish for about two months now and it is starting to grow a large amount of algae. I was wondering if adding a type of dwarf pleco would be a good idea. I've read that the smaller ones...

    Identifying Types Of Guppies?

    It wasn't hard to tell their gender when I first got them, but I want to know: are they feeder or Fancy guppies? I got them for free because they were older fry.   They are rather plain looking, save for the male (and he sometimes has a black oval on each of his sides), and one female has only...

    Abusive Guppies?

    Well, to start things off, I have great news. My molly fry is growing exponentially and I've started giving it little bits of brine shrimp when the others get a frozen tablet to feast on.
