    Hello wonderful people! Anyone who has kept multiple African Dwarf Frogs will probably understand the annoyance that is sexing them. I tried and tried to find mature frogs, but every store, online and in-person, sold them as babies, meaning I couldn't sex them until AFTER I bought them and had...

    Does anyone know if you can breed an Orange shrimp with a Green Jade? I also have a Black Rose, didn't know if that could also be a candidate. I haven't been able to find much information on the cross-breed, or even if anyone has done it. I know the Green Jade shrimp originally came from Orange...

    I'm working to stock a 29g planted community tank and have been contemplating adding shrimp for a while now. Currently, there are aout 15 MTS, a bunch of ramshorn and bladder snails, 2 nerites, a mystery snail, a school or corys (6), and a school of lambchop rasboras (8). The plants...

    I have an odd question for you guys. So, I have a 150 gallon axolotl tank with a matching sump (it was originally a reef tank, so it's got all the bells and whistles). I would like to breed crystal red and dream blue shrimp as food/also display animals in other areas. Obviously a breeding colony...

    I noticed the angels were super aggressive last night. Found these little guys today. I never had any intention on breeding, but while keeping the eggs/fry to term isn't a priority, I'm also not interested in going out of my way to destroy them. Getting another tank is out of the question...

    I've had ghost shrimp reproduce in my tanks before, but have never noticed this... My females appear to be producing the little green eggs where I would think their brains would be. Is this how their egg production starts? Anyone with more experience breeding shrimp, please advise.

    Hello, about a week ago I added a male pearl gourami to the tank of my female and for some reason did not consider they would breed. Now, she is gravid, and I don't have the accommodations to care for the fry. If I remove her from the tank, will she reabsorb the eggs? Would a local chain store...

    Hi, I just wanted to tell you guys a weird story that happened many years ago. We had a few serpae tetras, one of which kept getting fatter. Instead of laying eggs, one day the tetra was dead, the belly ripped open, and 1 baby fish was swimming around. Perhaps a cm long. No eggs, no other...

    Quick question, do apistogrammas gain more color/patterning with age? I ordered a young pair of triple reds and am wondering if the male will gain more coloring and patterning as he matures. They are a little over an inch right now, here's some photos: https://photos.app.goo.gl/dBv3enRzhUwh8AqC7...

    Hi, So my Amano gave birth to one zillion healthy looking larvae. I need to transfer them to brackish water, but I have no idea how to make those water. I read that salinity of anywhere between 20-32 is OK. But can I just take tap\RO water and add table salt? epsom salt? or do I need to buy a...

    Hello, I have guppies and one in particular is huge and she's been this way for months. Is there a way to know exactly when she's about to have the fry? Or is there a way to somehow induce this poor fish? Thanks!

    Hey there! I have a 10 gal betta tank and picked up 2 ghost shrimp today when I bought a new aquarium plant. When I got home I realized that one of the shrimp is definitely a female with eggs. I have no experience, or desire really, to raise a batch of baby ghost shrimp and will be gone in 3...

    Are there any shrimp anyone would recommend to put in a planted tank that already has cherry's in them?

    Hey guys, can you put a pair of apistos and a pair of rams in the same tank? Would they be able to breed? Thanks!:smile2:

I let my mom know ( who would be caring for them) and told her that nothing should happen until i get back. Today, However, she called me frantically...

    Hey all, I have some Kribs in a 20 long. 3 Females and 1 Male. I have a few clay pots. The male stays in one and the females hide in other pots and plants. The male has been digging out this cave for about a week now. I haven't seen any dancing or females checking out the cave. Is he simply...

    So I have been pining over these shrimp for some time and I have finally got my hands on them. (Video of my shrimps https://youtu.be/Wc6zArLw8LI ) I was wondering if anyone else has tried these guys and what advice they might have. I have scoured the net for information and have become very...

    Hello all! So I have a male and female ram in my 15G heavily planted with stones driftwood etc. Now these two have never been in a fight and have always been two peas in a pod always swimming together. A couple months ago the females spawning tube was out, and she was cleaning a rock as the male...
