    New to the planted tank world and looking for some general help. I kept saltwater reef tanks for years, recently went on vacation and everything went wrong lost all the coral and fish. Since I was starting new, I decided to try out the freshwater planted tank world. I have always loved the look...

    I got 4 male guppys and had them in quarantine for a week. They ate everything I gave them, colored up nicely and are very active. I put them in my 5 gallon tank last night which already had 2 amano shrimp and 3 nerite snails. They had a couple hours to explore the tank and eat some algae before...

    Ok, folks. My introduction to this forum may end up getting me promptly kicked off this forum, but here goes. I'm here because I got a guppy by accident two days ago. I teach introductory environmental science to non-science majors, and in our unit on nutrient cycling I have my students set...

    Hi New to the hubby. When I started my tank I bought 4 guppies and it seems they are dying of the same cause, but one at a time (with nearly a month in between). The only change in fish I can explain is: My guppies are black. If you look closely at the healthy guppy's eyes some kind of white...

    Hello, I am new here and while I have kept fish (African cichlids) in aquariums in the past I was hoping to start a new project, a paludarium. I have done some research on them and I am hoping to keep one that is relatively self sustaining, for example I was hoping to keep the prey for the...

    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!

    I'll be receiving a bunch of this fish sometime next week around wednesday or thursday and was wondering if anyone was interested in trading some plants or shrimp? These fish are really tiny livebearers perfect for planted tanks. Will have about 10 trios. Wanted to post early so I can prepare...

    So I have had my heavily planted tank for a month or two. The tank is 40 litres and the water quality is fine (i even went to the pet store to get a second opinion and they said it was perfect). Firstly, i had 6 guppies which ALL pasted away from swimming side ways and slowly sinking to the...

    I live in Daytona FL so my weather is quite mild. I have a 35 gallon heavily planted pond with a solar fountain and a 100 gallon per hour spouter, so it is quite circulated. I have a small group of fancy guppies and fry in the pond but the dragonfly nymphs are keeping the population low. I also...

    I got some Blue delta guppies from the last auction and they have since had many babies, so I'm looking to thin out the herd. Attached are some crappy pics, they are all juvies, as old as 3 months as young as a month. If any one is interested, a dollar a guppy or trade for some cool plants, or...

    This is my first freshwater tank. First aquarium ever, actually. My current setup and fish community goals are below. I ended up doing a semi-successful fish-in cycle with the zebras and golden Danios. I started out with Dr. Tim's One and Only but had better cycling results after using Tetra...
