    Hello, I have a 10L filtered and heated tank with two platys. I set off a mini cycle about 2 months ago and have been battling to get the ammonia sorted since then. Every time it goes down it last for a couple of days then hits 0.25 again. At the moment it is 0.25 and I am doing water changes...

    Hello, I have a 10L filtered tank with two platys and false plants, that has been running for 7 months. I did a large clean of my tank about 3 weeks ago, including a lot of the gravel and I think I set off a mini-cycle. One of my platys was clamping and looking a bit quiet so I tested the...

    Hello, I got two platys three days ago and they are settling into their new home. The tank is fully cycled and all the water parameters are fine. Yesterday morning I noticed that one platy had a white edge down one of its front fins, and the fin was much smaller than it should be. The other...

    I have a 5 gallon tank that has 2 adult female platys and a number of fry from both. I had a male in the tank but he passed a while back, shortly before the fry were born. Now i have a semi fat female, i assume she isn't pregnant, and a really skinny female. I worry about my skinny female, it...

    I haven't noticed my pregnant fish ever being aggressive but shes due to drop fry any day now and she keeps chasing the other fish. Is that normal or will this probably be a permanant problem?

    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...

    My platy gave birth to about 23 fry three weeks ago. They are in a breeding net inside my ten gallon tank (with my other fish, and where they were born). I am keeping them in the breeding net until my new tank is fully cycled. Anyways, the baby net they are staying in is getting pretty dirty...

    I have a female "marigold metallic Blue Hybrid" Platy that I bought from a breeder 4 months ago. She is one of two and was possibly pregnant when I bought her (breeder was unsure and couldn't guarantee anything.) The past 2 days she has been staying at the bottom of the tank most of the day...

    My Platy is very pregnant (I just got her from a pet store a few days ago) and as of last night I can see the babies eyes in her tummy. She's been nipping at the other two platies today so I put her in a top fin breeder net that has fake plants in it that goes inside the main tank, and so far...

    Hi, I'm a novice to the hobby and I joined the site recently to get some stocking advise. This is my 55 Gallon tank that I am gradually stocking. So far it had 8 zebra danios and 8 red platies. Eventually I would like to add a small school of bleeding heart tetras (my wife's request), and...

    Ok, so I have a 29G that will have four female Platties and 5 Black Kuhli Loaches, but I think this is rather understocked. Does anyone have any suggestions of what kind of fish(es) I could put in? Also, I would like the fish to be peaceful, so no semi-aggressives please. Thanks for the help!

    I had a pair of beautiful little platies when I had first started my 5 gallon tank, they stayed together for about a month, then the male suddenly died. About a month ( give or take) after his death, she gave birth to 6 little fry. Sadly, only three survived, but they are now very healthy happy...
