    Hey. So I recently purchased some new additions on a trip and after being transported for 10 hours in a lunch bag cooler filled with heat packs and newspaper on my lap they were home and today I put them in the main tank. Initially I had thought I accidentally got two young males me mind has...
  3. Cyprinids and Atherinids
    When I began adding more rainbows to my bigger 56 Gallon tank about 4 months ago, I read a lot of conflicting information of what the female to male ratio of the fish should be. My goal was really to diversify the types of rainbows I had the most I could with the space I had. I read in some...

    I have raised fish on and off for a few years, but recently decided to get back into the hobby. I purchased 5 female guppies and an African Dwarf frog and set up my 10-gallon aquarium for them. Every one was happy, but now some are picking on each other a bit. I'm not worried that they will...

  7. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    The LPS sold me these as a Male and Female, but I'm not convinced on the female... SO any of you clever lot out there be able to give me a hand on this one? It's not a problem if they're both males, they have plenty of space and places to hide and they get on fantastic. The Male is quite...

    I asked for 3 Females and 1 Male... not so sure that's what I got. Pretty much 100% sure this one is a male. Here are the 3 I'm not so sure about.... The very last one I'm thinking is a female. The other 2 have really pointy, although not so swooped dorsal and anal fins... but the...
  15. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    There seems to be a lot of conflicting information when it comes to sexing adult cichlids. I have a tank full of jewel cichlids and I wanted to try to sex them... preferably without venting them. Does anyone have information about sexing this specific species of Cichlid?
