    Livebearers
    So I added a new male swordtail into my 10 gallon tank, only previously habited by my male platy and Oto. The days after I added him, both my platy and the swordtail kept having horrible fights, I can't exactly separate them so I just hoped for the fights to stop. It has calmed down relatively...

    This morning I woke up and could only see one of my marble angelfish. After a bit of looking, I found the silver tucked between the Java ferns in hiding. Fearing it was sick, I proceeded to feed the fish and begging monitoring. After a couple of minutes, this silver slowly came out to eat and I...

    Livebearers
    I'm cycling a 20 gal. I'm about 2 1/2 weeks into it. I started with 1 female betta and a week later added 2 platies.
