I have 5 Otos in my tank and two of them have recently began chasing each other around. I've had all of them for close to 8 months and haven't seen this before. One isn't dominating the chasing, it...
Nevermind, I chose to run and do it now
Ammo: 0 ppm
Nitrites: 0 ppm
Nitrates: 20 ppm
Everything checks out, my ph is higher than the norm, but that is what my local...
Im planning on checking first thing tomorrow morning. I'm not near my tank now. I'll post an update when I find out.
Ok I have 6 platies 4 sunburst 2 red wag. Well the one red wag died of old age last week and now the other red wag seems depressed or sick or something. They have been together for almost 2 1/2...
Haha, I just went to my fail safe petco (super clean and further away than 3 others by me.) They always have great looking fish and a ton of variations of platys. Best part is that they had a...
Like I'm interested in trying it, but like you mentioned, I don't want it to get out of hand. I may just stick with the males. I had two beautiful blue youngsters but they got eaten by my enormous...
I have a 36 gallon bowfront and 3 male platys (two recently died of old age). Is there a point to breeding these things? I do have fish that will eat the fry (2 killies). So should I breed them to...

Appreciate all of the help. I will take it step by step and see how it goes. Worst case I drain everything.
One last question, will I have to recycle my tank? I have two filters on it right now...

Splendid, did you leave your fish in there while moving it?

Yes, I need to paint the wall :). Would you say like drain 2/3 of the water? I was also planning on getting some furniture movers (the object, not people) to help move it.
Also, should I save the...

I have a 36 gal bowfront with matching stand. I need to move it like 2-3 feet away from the wall. What is the best way to do this? HELP! Haha

I think they are otocinclus eggs. They are in groups of about 6-7 in 3-4 places on my glass in my tank (and 3 on my snail). They are the size of #2 pencil lead in diameter and the only thing that...

I have 5 male platies (yes, they are all male) and usually two of them will always be swimming SO close together. They also like to do this with my serpae tetra and the tetras get freaked out by it....

And it isn't like he is getting picked on by the others. I guess this is just his new hobby haha. He always follows them, never leads the group of tetras. Like you said, I think there is a screw...

Ok this is weird, for the last week or so one of my six platys has been schooling with my group of six serpae tetras. Every once in a while one of my other platys will chase him out of the school as...
I have two golden killies in my tank and they are normally a very bright yellow. Today my bigger one has two dark lines on each side of his body going from his head to the tail. I have never seen it...

Awesome, thanks for the responses guys! Now what is not awesome is me moving this thing haha. So will I just put all of my tank water into buckets and then put the fish temporarily there? I also have...

So I am planning on painting soon and have my 36 gallon bow front almost right up against the wall. What is the safest way to move it like 2 feet away from the wall?
I have 5 emerald cories in my tank (36 gallon bowfront). I used to have three and about 1 week ago I added two more. The two new ones are very active and always exploring the tank. One of the older...
It is probably a hybrid of a tiger platy and another type. It has the colors of tiger platy, but not the markings.

Yeah, I was excited.

100% sure. They usually do this like twice a year at most. Pretty rare.
10-06-2012, 01:06 PM
No I haven't. They have been out of stock ever since the first time I saw them. I'm running over there today to check again.

I read the white ones could get up to a foot. So no go on those guys haha.
