    All of my guppies (mainly female) dying in close proximity of eachother

    I have recently bought some guppies from 3 different stores, and now the death count (after a week) spiked to like 3 a day... Any ideas? There are more males than females, and they had white "floof" fungi looking things on their bodies. I did find a male and female mating and still "attached"...

    What should I put in my 10 gallon tank?

    hey guys :) I have just bought a 10 gallon tank after my betta died and I wanted to try something new. I'm looking for suggestions on how to stock it. At the minute I'm thinking about livebearers although I would only get males because I'm not wanting fry. Guppies? Platies? Mollies? Endlers...

    Fungal infection (almost certain)

    This might been a more or less “she may survive but maybe not” thread, but one of my cobra female guppies started showing symptoms of an infection a week ago.I do not have much experience with fungus and infections but I have been treating the tank for a good 4 days with API Melafix (and ick...

    My weird Guppy!

    Good Morning!! I’m new to this forum and very excited to be here. I’ve been keeping fish for many many years and now only keep one thirty gallon tank. I have this unusual male guppy that has a triple swordtail. Has anyone seen a guppy like this?

    Guppy acting odd?

    One of my guppies seems to have distanced himself from the others about two weeks ago. I didn't really think anything of it, but hes always in one corner, in his own little world. He is still eating and looks healthy?

    Fat guppy?

    I have a very healthy 200l tank with a variety of fish who are all doing well. I've noticed that one of the ten guppies is very fat and I'm very concerned. I've had him for almost a year. I originally thought the guppies were female but it turns out they're all male, so he definitely isn't...

    Sick fish I saw at the store today

    Poor little guy looks like one of mine, I’d say it’s a bacterial infection of some sort, what do y’all think? I told the store, they’ll usually shut down and treat sick tanks.

    Thinking of doing a guppy tank!

    So, I’ve only kept bettas but I’m wanting to branch out. I have very hard water and recently learned guppies do good in hard water! So I definitely wanna try them I’m thinking of doing a 20 gallon, heavily planted tank. For stocking I want to do all males, because I don’t want to deal with...

    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...

    What is this fish?

    I recently bought this fish from Petsmart. The employee said it was a platy and ended up picking a random sku because she didn't know which breed it was. I was thinking it was a very large female guppy but she's a lit bigger than guppies I've raised. (2in. in length) The black spot seems to be...

    Is my guppy male or female?

    I have a difficult time identifying my guppies genders sometimes. Can someone help me identify this one? This is my first time on this forum so I hope this isn’t the wrong place to post. If you need a better picture let me know!

    Healthy Guppy Poop?

    I would just like to clarify, what exactly would be consider a heathy guppy's poop? I see things about unhealthy or strange guppy poop, but I don't actually see any healthy poop. I just want to make sure I know what is what.
