  1. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    I just noticed something on the body of my neon tetra, I wonder if it's infectious and I should isolate it from the rest of the school, or is it something like a wound he got from other tetras bullying him? because I observe that sometimes they fight and chase each other.
  2. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    I have a black skirt tetra that is larger than all the other fish in my tank and he is bullying all of the fish. I noticed that one of them has lost significant amount of his fin so I segregated the bully fish into a breeding net. Now there are two other fish that are hanging out side the net...

    I have a 5 gal. tank with a male betta and 4 neon tetras. When feeding I give the betta his food first, 2-3 pellets, before putting in the tetra flakes. He finishes his pellets and ends up eating some of the tetra food that floats around that the tetras haven't yet gotten to. This means he keeps...

    I just noticed there are two little tetras in my tank. They are about 1.5cm long. I'm surprised they survived to this size. They are hanging out by some bushy plants. So I guess they've hid out in there to grow up. My water quality is excellent in that tank, and they survived this long. So I'm...

  20. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I'm setting up a new 20g tank and when it finishes cycling, I'm adding in my existing 5 neon tetras and 5 corydoras. I also have some plants in the tank (not sure of their names). Is there any other species I can add to the tank? On AqAdvisor it says the tank's stocking level would be 53%...
