    Brackish Water
    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. There is lots of information, supported by video clips, that I am sure will amaze even the most jaded...

  3. My Male Fancy Guppies' Tails are Deteriorating

    Tropical Fish Diseases
    Hi I have a 30 gallon tank set up with a filter and a heater set at about 78 degrees. I have all fancy guppies in there and that's only 10. I bought a few new ones (still makes it ten) yesterday and today I came home to find that there are three of them with loss of color and the tails are...
  4. Guppy Breeding, Day by Day

    Livebearers
    So as some of you know, I breed guppies. it's like... my thang. I used to breed wild guppies, my roomate found out, bought some guppies, asked for my help. Fast forward 2 months later - he doesn't care about fish TOO much (He likes them, helps keep them on a feeding schedule, assists in water...
  5. Tropical 20 gallon tank overstocked??

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    Hi everyone! I am new to this amazing website and also fairly new to the fish keeping hobby. I have a question about the number of fish I have. I have a 20 gallon tank and am wondering if it is overstocked or overcrowded. Inhabitants: 1 sunburst platy 2 gold twinbar platys 2 red wag platys 3...
  6. Snail eaters in a small-ish tank.

    Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    Hi all, Long-time lurker, first time poster. I'm a beginner fishkeeper who recently set up a 70L planted tank for my four guppies and, as I suppose should be expected, a snail snuck its way in on one of the plants. Plucked it out, but just found another one this morning - It has begun. My...
  7. Baby guppies, but one dead female, to replace or not to replace?

    Livebearers
    I lost my favorite female, but I now have babies! Sadly, the half black yellow that I loved and had the most hope for great babies from is the one that died. She just kept getting bigger and bigger, and stayed that way, and then she was dead. I assume she probably just couldn't deliver...
  8. Advice? Possibly getting my first dwarf gourami!

    Anabantids
    I have a cycling 10 gallon tank, and my original plans were to get about 6 male guppies. But upon further research and looking at awesome fish, I think dwarf gouramis are super cool fish. I'm thinking about getting a single dwarf gourami and 3 male guppies. I have never had fish other than my...
  9. Stocking Question: Male only tank of Endlers and Guppies

    Livebearers
    Hey :) I'm using AqAdvisor for my 13gallon tank. It's dimensions are 24.25 x 16.625 x 8.375 (measured from outside; so when I type it into AqAdvisor I put 24 x 16 x 8) Here's a link to the tank I bought: Aqueon » 13 LED Widescreen Aquarium Kit | Products Anyway I'm currently cycling it. Just...
  10. Male guppy making loops. Is he happy or sick?

    Livebearers
    Hello everyone! I am super new to this forum and any forums in fact, so if I am posting in the wrong thread or something let me know! Anyway, I have a fully cycled (I believe) 10 gal (I am also relatively new to fish keeping, roughly 1 year) with 3 fancy male guppies, 2 glowlight tetras, 3...
  11. New Tank!! Suggestions for guppy tankmates?

    Livebearers
    Just bought an awesome 29 gal hex tank... So pumped to get this stocked! Waiting a week or two depending on how fast cycling goes... My 55 gallon has been set up with plants since 2011 and currently there is a constant new addition or two of red cherry barb babies, usually after a largish water...
  12. Guppies "hand rubbing" behavior

    Livebearers
    Hello, I've been running a small aquaponics setup for a few weeks now, using guppies and ghost shrimp. For a while now I have been trying to get the guppies to eat out of my hand with mixed success (they don't fear me but the flakes and blood worms float out of my hand.) Recently I've noticed...
  13. Columnaris

    Livebearers
    From what I can tell, my tanks have a columnaris issue. It looks like strain two, as they appeared to die of hemorrhagic septicemia at first, but now they just die with very little warning aside from lethargy. Is there any good treatment for columnaris? I have kanaplex and furan-2 coming soon...
  14. What would you put in a 46-gallon bowfront?

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I'm playing with my stocking calculator. Considering a betta sorority, or a large group of male guppies. Maybe mollies. I am cycling, planting, and establishing my tank first, so it will be a while before I actually buy fish. :) What would YOU put in a 46 gal?
  15. Guppy stocking

    Livebearers
    How many male guppies are ideal for a 10-gallon? How about a 20?
  16. Can I keep a tank with guppies of all one gender?

    Livebearers
    I don't want to deal with fry. Can I keep all-male guppies or all-female together? Not a mix?
  17. I don't want fry - can I house guppies in groups of one gender?

    Livebearers
    I'm loosely considering guppies for a 10 or 20 gallon. However, I do not want to deal with fry. Will an all-male group live together OK? Or an all-female group?
  18. Science Fair Project help: Guppy, Endler or Molly hybrid

    Livebearers
    My son is doing a science fair project. He is trying to breed a hybrid. Here is the link to the project idea. The project calls for male Guppies and female Endlers. The problem is that I need pure strain Endlers. I have only been able to track down juveniles in our area. The project has to be...

  20. Putting Together a Planted Aquarium

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I've only recently joined this site and this is my first post, so I suppose a hello to all of you is in order. Hello! Now, I have a 30 gallon tank and I'd like to plant it, heavily. I hope to remove the external filter I have running now and possibly replace it with some form of sponge filter...
