  3. Kribensis ( Pelvicachromis pulcher )

    Cichlids
    The Kribensis (Pelvicachromis pulcher) is probably the easiest cichlid to maintain and breed. In fact, due to their small size ( 3-4 inches / 7.6 - 10 cm ), hardy, adaptable nature, and ease of breeding, this fish is probably the ideal cichlid for anyone that is taking their first steps into...

    Has anyone here ever fed their mosquito larvae to their Betta ? They love it, and it's fun to watch them chasing the larvae all around the tank.

  10. Baby Columbian Tetra care

    Characins
    I just noticed there are two little tetras in my tank. They are about 1.5cm long. I'm surprised they survived to this size. They are hanging out by some bushy plants. So I guess they've hid out in there to grow up. My water quality is excellent in that tank, and they survived this long. So I'm...

Basically I want to selectively breed some guppies, but I can only have one tank. I'm getting a 55 gallon tank, and I'm...
  17. New to fishkeeping. Are we going to have fry soon??

    Fish Breeding
    A few weeks ago, we inherited a 5-gallon tank with 6 fish: 4 little guppies and 2 that are bigger ones we need help identifying. I noticed one of the larger fish has what looks like a gravid spot. All the other fish are bothering it non-stop. I isolated the mama to be in a breeding tank and she...
