    Breeding behaviors in female-only tank

    Hello world! I've been watching my Honduran Red Points fish do some stuff recently that I thought some of you might find interesting, so here goes -- My largest female, Zinnia, and my largest male, Rhaegar, successfully spawned about three months back. As soon as fry were free swimming, dad...

    Male angel not fertilizing the eggs

    My female angel just laid eggs again, but the male is doing nothing! He's just watching, hanging out in the top corner of the tank. A bit over a week ago they spawned in the community tank and he fertilized them just fine. Now they're in a breeding tank, and his spawning tube isn't even out. Is...

    Angelfish laid eggs but hungry fish try to eat them!

    I got my first angelfish about a week ago and they've been laying eggs today! However this is a community tank and I have a lot of hungry fish that would want to eat their eggs. I can set up a 100l tank with water and filter media from the big aquarium. I really don't want to disrupt it all tho...

    Male Ram attacking Female after eggs were eaten overnight

    I made some posts about my GBRs spawning recently. Basically this morning I turned on the light and all the eggs were gone (corys ate them most likely). But now the male is seeking out the female ram and chasing her - I can distract them with food and they leave each other alone for a few...

    Breeding/Raising Bristlenose Plecos

    Finally got eggs from my bristlenose pleco pair. Dad's a long finned normal colored young adult. Bought him at the pet store when he was tiny, only 6$. Mom's a full grown albino short finned female I received from the pet store owner. They've been flirting and digging pits near the caves...

    Electric blue acara behaviour

    I need help or any tips or advice after the larger female spawned. The eggs are on the red rock. The behavior got worse after the the female spawned but started 3 days ago since I transferred them to the 90 gal tank. I purchased the younger male at a LFS in hopes of finding a mate for my...

    Breeding, Fighting Angelfish

    Hello peoples. I have four black and white striped angelfish, they were great fish together until they broke apart into two breeding pairs, each pair lays eggs about every two weeks and they're always fighting. The fighting isn't cool so unfortunately I have to get rid of one pair. My LFS will...

    Breeding Mollies

    Hey everyone, I have a male/female pair of mollies in my tank, and I'm curious as to how easily they breed. Do they need a breeding process or will they breed on their own? Are there any telltale signs to look out for that shows they'll spawn soon? Also, if they do breed on their own, how will i...

    Honey Gouramis -What Is Missing?

    Hi everyone.   I have a lovely pair of honey gouramis (named Honey and Sugar), had them about six months now.   My question is - they display, they dance (where they look like they almost wrap), they are always interacting and clearly like each other! My male is always in his breeding colours...

    Help! Panda Cory Pale - Normal When Spawning?

    So I just did a water change (about 10% every 4th day) and like clockwork I noticed my two adults have spawned again. Left a clutch of about 6 eggs and still at it. I noticed they have both gotten pale since yesterday. The male more than the female. Has anyone ever noticed or come across...

    Filtration Question - Spawning

    I have recently had an explosion of spawning in my 20 gallon long freshwater tank. I found a free swimming panda cory (approx 3-5 weeks old i think), 12 more panda eggs, and about 6 free swimming zebra danio fry. The tank has an aquaclear 50 hob and a backup sponge filter and lots of plants. I...

    Angelfish Spawning Diary

    It's been about a month now since my Angelfish decided to spawn for the first time, they've spent a lot of time reconditioning themselves and this morning I spotted them cleaning several Anubias leaves in the tank with their papilla on display - naughty. I knew they would be spawning sometime...

    Is My Pleco In Danger?

    I have a almost 4 inch bristlenose pleco that I have always believed was a male, but quite recently he's gotten REALLY fat! I heard plecos can get constipated (?) and can die from it so I have started to worry! Maybe he is a she though and she's just full of eggs???   He/She is about a year old...
