    I have three swordtails and one of my females is being mean to my male. My tank has been set up for about a month and is a 36 gallon. Anyone know why they are being aggressive?

    After our male swordtail died a few months back, we did not get another male, and one of the females has grown a gonopodium and is now growing a sword. We have gotten a bigger tank and want to get more swordtails, but can we get a real male now, or will it fight with the sex-changed male...

    Day 4 of the 7 day Melafix antibacterial treatment course and I would say the fin rot has certainly not progressed, and maybe there is even a little healing of the tail fin.

    I have a cycled 10 gallon tank with good water parameters. Added the first fish: a male and two sunset swordtails a week ago. One of the females died after 2.5 days--appeared to be severely constipated. Replaced with a female tuxedo swordtail which was doing fine for the first 3.5 days until...

    Hi there again~ Okay, so I already posted a thread that was "Maybe pregnant platy?" and got some really good responses. Well, I have another issue with that silly little platy. She got thinner again, but the fry aren't anywhere to be found. So, last time I posted a video of my platy Hiedi, she...

    I got two swordtails @ Petco about a month or two ago. The lady assured me they were both Female, as I didn't really want fry. A couple days ago, I noticed a sword-tail on one. Dosen't that mean its a male? And my other female suddenly go very fat. Is there a way I can know for sure that she it...
