    Okay so this is probably a bad idea but I’ve been considering hatching my mystery snail’s eggs. We bought her from a pet store on the 24th and a few days ago she laid a clutch of eggs. I just wiped it off and threw it in the trash, not wanted to have 30 little mystery snails swimming around...
  2. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    Hello all! I have bred a pair of bettas, and it is the second day after laying the eggs and they have already hatched. I have fry now that can not seem to stay in the nest, and the male puts them back into the nest when he can, but the ones that fall all the way to the bottom lie there...
  3. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    I know it sounds horrible. One of my Mollys gave birth, and I have tried to give away my babies for free. But leaving in Canada doesn't seem to have as many outlets like USA does. I still have like 30 babies in a 37.5 gallon tank, with the about 10 of my adult fish. They are getting bigger and...

    Hey, I was hoping this would have been a better platform...but I guess more so if American. I live in Calgary, and two of my mamas gave birth. Some are 2 weeks old and some were just born last night. I need to get rid of them soon. My tank is only a 37.50 gallon, So if there is anyone in...

    This amazing high definition video takes an up close look at the miracle of birth. You will see a gravid female guppy ( technically it's a female Orchid Endler ) giving birth to her 37 babies.

    One of the best ways to improve the growth rate of newborn fish is to give them ample supplies of healthy live foods. Microworms are a great choice for feeding small fry. These roundworms are a free-living (non-parasitic) nematode that is also known as the sour paste nematode. They are very easy...

    One of the easiest ways to improve the growth rate of newborn fish is to give them ample supplies of healthy live foods. However, most live food cultures can be difficult to keep going over the long run. One exception is the vinegar eel. These creatures are incredibly easy to raise and feed to...

  13. Fish Breeding
    I was looking at my community tank a few days ago and spotted a few baby platies hiding under a filter so I netted them and plopped them in a breeder net. Then I scooped up a handful of plants and dropped them into the net for the fry to hide. A few days later, I took out the platy fry and...

    hello I am about to get my first fish tank as I am very interested in this hobby. I would like to know if these fish/invertebrates are compatible and if this tank would be overstocked. I will be getting a 50 gallon tank. with a school of long finned danios (I believe I need 5?), a school of...
  15. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    I just started this fish keeping hobby about a month and a half ago. I received a 14 G hexagonal tank from a freind complete with heater and 20G filter. I have read a lot of stuff about cycling, testing the levels etc. I started out the tank with 2 neon tetras, 2 platies, and a guppy. A few...

  17. 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...

    Okay. So I have 15~ platy fry who are around ~2 or ~3 months old now. Some are really big, almost as big as a CPD. Some half the size as their siblings. I have them in the 13 gallon they were born in, with a school of Celestial Pearl Danios. In my 60 Gallon I have 8 Platys (one is a...

    I have a 13 gallon and a 60 gallon Freshwater Tropical. The 13 gallon has 6 CPDs, and 16+ platy fry. I had accidentally purchased a female platy, and once I saw she was about due, I put her in my 13 gallon with the danios. She gave birth and then I returned her to the store; once the platy...
  20. Livebearers
    So one of my platies gave birth last night to 7 fry in a breeding trap and this morning I moved them into the fry tank with the last batch, who are 4 weeks old. The weird thing is that they are nearly identical in size, and some of them are bigger!! I read that platy fry come out about 1/2 cm...
