    Tropical Fish Diseases
    So like two or three weeks ago one of our Zebra Danios was found at the bottom corner of the tank not moving, when it tried to swim it like twitches its head and zips forward. Like it can't control its head. We have two - what we think are females- and they both looked fat. We thought maybe...

  7. Adding new danios to help current danios, even if the new ones probably won't last?

    Cyprinids and Atherinids
    I have a small tank (10g) with some danios and otos. Currently the pH in my tank is very low.

I only have two left now, along with 2...
