    I'm finding this most peculiar, the male keeps moving eggs from the leaf litter to the sponge filter and the female keeps moving them back. They've been doing this most of the morning, moving them back and forth. Is this a harmless domestic disagreement or something more? It is day 3. Youtube...

    Hey everyone, Happy Friday! I could use a little advice about a situation that has developed in my 75 g community tank. Two of my sub-adult angels (bodies about half-dollar size) have paired off, claimed 1/3 of the tank as "theirs", covered the green intake tube of the Eheim 2217 with eggs, and...

    So my Neon Tetras just started spawning really randomly, and it looks like it got my Green Neon Tetras are spawning, too. I've never had fish spawn before.

    I originally had a male blue ram in a 45g, then introduced a female. Quickly after noticing aggression I moved the female to a 10g, and then put a gold ram with the female in the 10g. I just discovered about 100 eggs tonight and am wondering if I need to put the male in the 10g to fertilize...

    I have a planted 15 US (gal) long-- My GIANT peppered catfish was caught spawning this evening while I was adjusting some plants. I noticed a number of eggs fall into the gravel, and a couple were turned into an omelette by a neon tetra in perfect position when the eggs spurted out. Assuming...

    My albino cory is popping out eggs all over the tank (55 gal)... they're on the plants, glass, equipment... everywhere. BUT my giant danios have caught on and have started gulping them up just as fast as she's laying them. What should I do?

    so i've had these fish for about a month and a half, and i've found them to be quite charming fish. however recently, i've noticed some interesting behaviors exhibited towards intraspecifics. there's a lot of strutting and sometimes nipping between individuals, and sometimes while doing this...
