Hi guys I'm new on this thread, and I noticed recently in my community tank my 2 guppies have been near the top often. Why are they doing this? I just did a water change, but they were doing it before too.

sadly, I've lost all of my see-thrus to a mystery illness.

Today it seemed to only be my male, but he was still chasing my female. :/ I really need to get a couple more females for him. After feeding, he's swimming about an inch deeper than where he was before. Sorry to hear about your see-thrus. :(

I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean very well... Guppies are top-level swimmers so they should be there fairly often. My boys are there at the top almost all the time, especially now that my betta has his own tank.

I mean that my male guppy's mouth was at the top of the tank a lot, and he was breathing sort of hard. Now, he isn't at the top as often.

Before feeding: water

After feeding: water

Ah, okay. It might have been just the need for a water change then?

Ugh. Speaking of water changes, I gotta kick my boyfriend out of bed so we can go buy a bucket from Ace so I can do a water change (- 3-) I have a gravel siphon so it sucks water way too fast for my pitchers.

Lol well I just did a 33% water change yesterday, and he had been doing this before also.

How often are you doing the water changes? I try to do mine once every... 6-9 days. (That's how it tends to work out.)

To be honest, I haven't done one in a little less than a month, but I'm gonna keep up on them now.

Yeah, definitely do your changes more often. I try to do them weekly, and that's with 5 guppies, 3 kuhli loaches, an oto, butterfly loach and a mystery snail the size of a kiwi. I should probably do them more often, but sometimes you can't.
