  1. General Freshwater
    Hello, I'm pretty new to aquariums/fish. I have a 10-gallon tank with 1 male molly and three females. The tank has been going through the cycling process - and I do water changes daily. The ammonia is pretty low (.5 - 1.0). I realize it needs to drop to 0 and was recommended by the pet...

    Hi. I just got my first aquarium, and I put in two black molly fish two days ago. This morning I found that my female gave birth. I googled it and I was told to separate the big guys from the little guys so that's what I did. What do I feed the babies? Do I need to do anything different? Any...

    My male molly (black) and female platy (Black and Orange) mated. They had fry and I was wondering if they will gain color? It's been three weeks and I thought they would have gained color by now. Theyre pretty much a peach color. I bought a platy/molly mix fry and it was white. Do all...

    Hi all! Joined recently and now I have a reason to post. I've had my balloon belly molly for about 2-3 weeks now. I've been cycling the tank with the fish (I regret it) and have been doing very frequent water changes to keep the ammonia/nitrites at bay. 10 gallon tank, bio wheel filter, 78.3...

    Hello! I am Alissa, a 13 year old girl. I just bought a new tank from Petco. Unforchunetly, I am having many issues with the tank and my fish for the reason alone that Petco neglected to give me valuable information that would have kept my fish alive. :( No one told me about the Nitrogen...

    I just purchased my creamsicle molly two days ago, and ever since I got it, it looks like it's head has been dusted with pollen. There are symptoms of ich on the tailfin, and two of the other fish I purchased at the same time are showing ich symptoms as well, my plecostamus and my red platy. The...

    Hello people, I have intensionally bred beta fish before, and was sucessful until realising that I needed a tank to filter the water because regardless of changing the water the food keep developing fungus and the fry eventually couldn't survive. ~ But that's for anther time. A recent surprise...

    Our Dalmatian Molly had about 15 fry a week ago. Only one died, and now they're looking all fat and adorable in their breeder net. I know that we ought to get a nursery tank for them.
