    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...

    Cory fishes not eating, swimming near surface

    Hi, I am quite new to the hobby and slowly built the first tank over the last months and I am a bit concerned with my Julii corys. Since 3/4f days 4 out of the 5 we have started behaving in a really strange way, spending all time either sleeping on the top of leaves (close to the surface) or...

    Ram Bloated and Sitting at top of tank

    My female Mikrogeophagus Ramerizi is looking very bloated, and she’s only sitting at the top of the tank with her body tilted towards the surface. All other fish in the tank are fine.

    Fish Breathing Heavily

I've got 3 X-Ray Tetras, 3 Red Platys and a Pleco.   Yesterday I 'renovated' my tank - added some new plants and some more gravel to stop them from uprooting. I took about 80% of the tank's water out so I could do...

    Surface Agitation - How Necessary?

    Hi I am still setting up and not yet started my cycle. Waiting on a test kit which I might get tomorrow. I have my filter (fluval U2) set up. At the moment it is completely submerged and I have it set to the middle spray bar. This obviously creates a slight current in the water and if I...
