is this normal for guppies
I recently added guppies to my tank on Saturday and noticed that today 2-3 of them are at the very top of the tank for periods of time. Is this normal. All of my water params are fine, 0 nitrite, 0 ammonia and 10 nitrate.
One of my danios died yesterday after looking limp, a little crooked and not active, now one of the guppies looks the same way...........
guppies are top dwellers,so they should spend most of their time at the top.
they'll travel about the tank,but that's mainly where they stay.
I have experienced this "limpness" with female guppies after they give birth. I don't know why it happens but don't worry. The guppies this happens to usually turn out fine.
well since this post was initially started 2 males have died and 2 females look the same way. they have not given birth so I dont know what is going on?????????
hmm perhaps have a word with you LFS where you bought them from,
perhaps they have a dodgy batch !!
Definitely as 4 of the 6 have died, so far the remaining 2 look ok. I will be taking the dead ones back to petco for my money back. I wont buy any more fish from that particular store:evil:
it's such a shame that these days guppies are so weak,guess that's why
they get the name millions fish. :(
I have good quality guppies. They are superior to the other guppies, and untouchable to diseases. Well at least that is what I would hope, so I don't get any large outbreaks... Come and take some of my fry! :-D
