    Second guppy prolapsed in one week

    last week my weakest guppy prolapsed and was so skinny and weak I euthanised him. Today one of my most vigorous guppies has the same, it got progressively worse but he was acting normal. Until I fed the fish and he near enough exploded. I’m finding guppy keeping quite distressing at the moment...

    Fin rot, I think not?

    I'm not sure what's going on with my guppy tank. The parameters are perfect: no nitrites, nitrates are extremely low, no ammonia, the pH is like 7.5ish, I keep the temperature at 78. I do a water change once a week, it's a 10 gallon I take out 3 gallons and replace it. I use API stress coat plus...

    Why is my male guppy so fat?

    I've had this guy for about 8 months now and lately he just has been getting so fat. He eats micro pellets or flakes once a day and also nibbles on algae wafers on the bottom. He doesn't behave sick or injured. My water parameters are fine and I always do weekly water changes. Is this normal or...
