    Breeding Sparkling Gourami

    I'm a newbie who has had success breeding one generation of sparkling gourami. The sparklers are now breeding again in my 106L community tank. My hunch has been to remove the fry after 3-4 days, when they go from vertical to horizontal and begin to move, on the assumption that they would soon...

    Cory egg care for a newbie

    It's all go at my house. I have 6 medaka (rice fish) fry, a baby pencilfish, lots of baby least Killifish – hard not to – and now my corys have laid eggs - either for both the elegant and the false jullii.

    1 fry came with shrimp - is it a guppy?

    I went to the local fish shop yesterday and asked for 4 amano shrimp to add to a 5L. Due to social distancing, and the tiny shop, they asked me to wait by the checkout while they caught the shrimp at the back of the shop. This means that I don't know what fish were with the shrimp. When she came...

They lived in a tank with 7 kuhli loaches and some otos. They had been...

    Filters for fry?

    So my guppies had babys.... About 20 so far, I dont want to overcrowd my tank so was going to have a separate one for the baby's to grow without being eaten. Any suggestions on a filter that's safe? And best setup for guppies ?

    I have fry! What now?

    I've been getting a bit frustrated with the tank and was doing a clean this evening, saw some detritus blowing about, looked closer and it's actually fry! They are Anomalochromis Thomasi and the parents seem to be doing a good job keeping the rest of the tank inhabitants away. I have 5 adults...

    Fry in the Stream

    Most of my plants came today so could help starting this journal. I'm converting my bare bottom fry tank into a mini aquascape, and for a change I've gone for a stream/river look. I've ordered some lovely looking sumatran driftwood that look like fallen branches and roots. A mixture of java and...
