    Cyprinids and Atherinids
    I've got a 20 gallon tank, cycled, with all nitrogen levels very low. PH is 7.5 I had a pleco, female beta, 4 livebearers and 7 zebra danios. About 2 weeks ago, my zebra danio's started dying one by one. Every other day I'd find another dead one. The rest of my fish are doing fine, and I have no...

    I have 1 balloon molly, 7 harlequin rasbora, 7 neon tetra, 1 swordtail & 1 assorted male fancy guppy (~ 1.5") in my 36-gal tank.

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I recently added some Red Phantom Tetras to a tank with Zebra Danios. As expected, the Danios keep close to the surface while the Tetras have colonized the middle and lower ranges of the water column. I'm feeding them flakes at the moment, and have discovered how voracious the Danios can be...

  8. GloFish and Zebra Danios not getting along.

    Cyprinids and Atherinids
    Last week I got 5 glofish, and 4 of them died. I let my last fish be alone for about 4 days, but felt like it was stressing him out so i got him 2 regular zebra danio tank mates. One of them is rather large, and the other is about the same size as my glofish. I'm assuming the large one is a...

    I started my first aquarium (freshwater, 55-gal) in January of this year. At that time I had six zebra danios. After a couple of months I saw that this one was getting picked on by two others.

    My 10 gallon aquarium has been set up 3 months ago, and originally been cycled with 2 zebra danios.

    Has anyone had any GloFish accidentally reproduce?

  19. Two New Plants & Three New Fish - problem?

    Beginner Planted Aquarium
    Today, since Mustard (the survivor) hasn't had any tankmates, my dad's girlfriend decided to buy for him three new fishy friends. I thought I could only have 1 of those fish in a 2.4 gallon tank, but the man at a specialty fish store said I could have around 4. It seems like a good idea since...
