  1. General Freshwater
    I have a mummichog (killifish) that has recently become very fat in the abdomen and I'm not sure why. Is it pregnant? sick? trying to fit in with the all-goldfish school? or just getting fat? It's diet has been constant for the year or so that I've had it. He seems to be ok other than a change...

    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...

    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?

    So I have this tank just sitting on the floor in the bedroom and I can't possibly think of what I could house in it, as it is only 1.5 gallons! Does anybody have any suggestions on what I could keep in it? A frog? Snail? Shrimp? Right now I own a goldfish [Ronald] and a pregnant guppy...

    Hi!! I just bought a female guppy as an addition to my 14 gallon tank. I think she may be pregnant. The more research I do, the more positive I am. However, I am not sure how far along she is. I read the dot before her tail has to be very black. It is, although I'm not sure how well you can see...

    I have a pair of Albino Corydoras; I've had them for just over two years now and the female has laid eggs several times. When I first got them, they were the same size, and eventually the female got a little bigger, but otherwise looked identical to the male. But in the past couple of months...
