    Why is my Tetra Glofish so huge compared to the others.

    My purple glofish is like unnaturally huge compared to the other tankmates. Is she eating too much? I don’t think she’s pregnant…

    Lemon Tetra Lost Control of Movement

    Hey everyone, I have had this lemon tetra for about 6 months and everything was fine until about a week ago, it started swimming in circle and spinning and such, it only did it for about 5 minutes so I wondered if maybe it had just hit its head or something. It was acting normal for about a week...

    Consider all as group of 6 are gold tetras as nippy as Silvertip ? Are bloodfin tetras nippy? I know all tetras can be nippy kept in small numbers, however I'm talking about in general. Are black line tail tetra anymore nippy than any other? Are they as nippy as silvertips?

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and looking from some advice. I have a lone tetra in a 30L freshwater tropical tank. He has been on his own for probably about a year now. I had 6 of them in there but in time (5 years or so) the other 5 died and with lockdown and the rest of it, I didn't get a...

    Can I add these fish to my 55 gallon?

    Ok so, I used to have a 10 gallon tank for a few years, but I recently (like 3 months ago now) got a 55 gallon. It started out with 5 Harlequin rasboras (plan to get 5 more) + 1 bristlenose pleco + 4 Kuhli loaches (all these from my 10 gal). Then I went to my LFS and bought 12 Longfin zebra...

    Is something wrong?

    One of my daughters glow fish has what appears to be a small raised bump on its bottom fin. It’s the same color as the fish. It seems to be eating normally and the last water change was almost a month ago. The other two fish do not have a bump. It’s kinda hard to tell since I can’t get a good...

    Why is my Rummy Nose Tetra's head white?

    Hi all, I have a freshwater tank with 6 rummy nose tetras and a betta. I noticed today that one of my tetras has a white head. He isn't acting funny, but I'm worried that this may be a disease or infection and I don't want it to spread to the other fish. Water has no ammonia, nitrates, or...

    Hi all, I’m new to fish keeping but I’ve been trying to educate myself as much as I can. I’ve set up a SuperFish Home 40l planted heated tank and was wondering what fish you would recommend and how many. I’m leaning towards neon tetra as they seem the easiest to take care of and lovely and...
