  1. Tropical Fish Diseases
    Just wondering if this is ich or fungus? (Pics below) My first thought was ich but there’s a few slightly bigger spots (like near his dorsal fin) that make me wonder if it’s a fungal infection. Or possibly both? Is there a way to treat it without isolating the fish? Currently my only spare tank...

    Hi, just over a month ago we bought four mollies, two males and two females. We didn’t know at the time about male to female ratios, and it wasn’t until researching about why the mollies keep fighting/chasing each other that we learnt that we should really have more females for that many males...

    Hello, I recently got some black velvet mollies as beginner fish, and they've been doing fine until recently. The older female molly has been chasing around and nipping at the other two fish in the tank, one being smaller{female} and the other being bigger{male}. I've tried rearranging the...

    Most tropical fish species that are sold as pets belong in a freshwater aquarium. Getting the temperature, lighting, and filtration in a freshwater aquarium from the very start might not be as straightforward as it seems, so it’s best to opt for hardier types of tropical fish, which can tolerate...

    I have a 10-gallon tank with 3 assorted mollies, and 5 Pricilla tetras. I wanted to see if other people thought this was overstocked, the tank doesn't look crowded and a couple of other places I've checked say its fine but I wanted to see other peoples opinions because if it is overstocked I...

    I just got a new Dalmatian Lyretail Molly, and the associate at the store told me it was male, but I think it might be female. I don’t know enough to say for sure, but it’s confusing because sometimes it’s anal fin is fanned out, making me think female, but then sometimes it flattens the anal...

    Hello all! I have a molly problem! 😂 We don’t know much about fish but have always had a 15-gallon tank with about 5-6 fish in it that have always done well and lived long lives. Our daughter is five and they’re her fish so we tend to just stuff that’s easy to take care of. We have had...

    Hey guys, I have 40 mollie fry in my tank with 4 adult mollies, 1 platy, 1 sucker fish, and 1 upside down catfish. I have another tank I am trying to get ready to put my fry in but my nitrites don't seem to be going down. It's at 0.25ppm at the moment and there's >1ppm of ammonia. I've tried...

    Hey guys, just wondering. I had 3 Platys now I only have 1. There is 4 mollies in the tank with her. Will she be okay? Or does she need fish of her own kind to be happy?

    Hello everyone, new fish tank owner here! I purchased a fish tank as a gift for my children, but seem to be having some issues. The tank i have is 70gal, with artificial plants and wood decor, gravel bottom. I have a 300w heater that keeps the tank at 78F, a air pump with 2 large air stones...

    Hi there, I’m new to this group and had a concern in my tank. I saw a few discussions here about this but didn’t really get an answer out of them and my situation was different than the others I’ve seen. So to start I have a 20 gal freshwater tank with rock and wood and live plants. I have a...

    I just noticed today that one of my mollies is having trouble swimming. He is active, and comes to the surface to eat, however his tail kinda droops down behind him, almost as if he can't move it. He definitely is working harder to get around. I have 2 other fully grown mollies and 9 babies in...

    Hi, here is my story. Yesterday i got a 24inx12inx12in tank equipped with a sponge filter and a pump for bubbles. I put in 6 mollies (2 white, 2 black, one white with black spots and one with a light orange hue and black spots). two are 3in, 4 are 2.5in. in length. Then i added 4 1in neon...

    Good Evening All. This is my first time seriously keeping fish. I bought a 10 gallon tank from petsmart. The full starter kit from Top Fin. Came with a heater, filter/pump, thermometer, and light. I put gravel at the bottom (off hand I don't know the total amount but it was the recommended...

    Hello! I'm planning my first 10 gallon freshwater tank, and I've decided I'd like to try to keep a few mollies. I'm new to fishkeeping, so thank you in advance for your guidance! My plan so far: 2 short-finned mollies (both female) 3-4 cory cats (pygmy maybe, to lower the bioload?) 3 amano...
  17. Introduce Yourself
    Hello everyone! I have been out of the fish keeping game for about 2 years now. I wasn't able to move my tanks with me when I moved from Florida to Texas, thankfully I am getting tons of tanks for Christmas this year! I got into fish keeping because I like everything about it, simply put it...

    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?

    I do not want to deal with babies! I'm wondering if it's OK to keep a group of all males.
