  2. How many guppies can I keep in a 10 gallon?

    How many guppies can I keep in a 10 gallon? No other fish, just guppies(All males or all females so they don't breed), as well as a couple snails. I don't want to do water changes more than weekly since I usually just do tank maintenance over the weekend.

    Hai So, one of my grandparents female fancy guppies look not well. She's really skinny and really long. And a chunk of her gill is missing. She's acting fine, but doesn't look like it.

    Hi everyone. I’m absolutely baffled as to what is going on with my fish. I have two tanks, one for guppies and one for guppy fry. I bought two new filters to put in my tanks yesterday, so I kept the original filters in the tanks, and just added the new filters as well. Anyway, I noticed a few...

    Guppy has a white bump

    Hi there, I have just noticed that one of my male guppies has developed a white growth on his head. He so has been getting bullied by the other 5 guppies and his tail has started to become tattered and frayed. Any idea what is wrong?

    Hello. Avid guppy lover.

    Hello, I got a guppy pair last October and have loved all the babies my big girl has produced. I separated her from the male soon after her first (unsuccessful) litter but true to guppy ways she produced 4 more litters every 30 days. I now have several tanks separating the females from males so...

    Stocking 57L

    Hi I am new to the hobby and have just purchased a 57L tank. I’m hoping to gradually build to something like: 6 panda corys 4 or 5 guppies 2 or 3 amano shrimp Maybe 1 nerite snail Probably sand substrate. Does that sound reasonable and any tips on plants? Cheers.

    Guppy still pregnant after giving birth?

    My Guppy gave birth to 6 fry around a week ago. The fry are doing very well and all have survived so far. But I swear my guppy is still pregnant! Is this a normal thing for Guppies? She still has a round belly and I swear I can see some fry in there if I look closely near her gravid spot. You...

    Female guppies are actually males..?

    Hi! I was sold a trio of guppies, specifically asking for two females and one male. The bag they came marked in was '2 f, 1 m'. The two 'females' are a good deal larger than the male. I've had them for a few weeks now and recently noticed the females displaying at each other which was funny...

    Help!! Why are my fish staying at the surface?!

    I have 6 fish in my tank, 3 guppies and 2 balloon mollies. However, since last night, I’ve noticed they’re all swimming around at the surface of the tank. Particularly the guppies. I’ve got no clue why because I have a pump that sprays bubbles so I’m sure there is enough oxygen in there for...
