    emaciated rainbow tetra swimming weirdly

    What’s with this fish? He’s been like this for a week and he got better so we didn’t think much until today, where all of a sudden he’s much worse. I’ve been trying to feed him but he’s not eating at all. I suspect worms so I dosed the tank with 1 tbsp of aquarium salt per 5 gals. Any advice?

    Is she pregnant or bloated

    Hello again Family! My tetra is huge but I’m not sure if she’s filled with eggs or just bloated. Now if you look at the background those are all OLD dead eggs from some time ago. But when that took place, she was no where near this big. Also, I do have a male tetra in the tank with her.

    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…

    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?
