Both parents should protect the eggs and fry, and don't seem to bother the adolescent fish either. However, it's perfectly safe to remove both parents once the fry are free-swimming and eating,...

Congos can be semi-aggressive, at least the males. Mine pick fights with other fish with impressive finnage, such as male mollies and swordtails and angelfish. Your betta could be at risk for...

That sounds like Hyella azteca, or the mexican amphipod. They are common hitchhikers on live plants, especially mosses. The consensus is that they're harmless, though I've heard accounts of them...

I couldn't agree more. My fish will eagerly eat just about anything I put in their tank. I could drop a ball of bread in there and I'm sure they'd devour it, doesn't mean it's healthy. With certain...
