  1. My male is making a bubble nest and I’m not sure if my female is pregnant

    Breeding Betta Fish
    I recently got 2 female bettas. I put them into a large tank with my make betta. Turns out one of the females was attacking him and eating his tail. I then separated them into the same tank but now with dividers. My male has begun to build a bubble nest and I’m not sure if my female is pregnant...
  2. How do I know when guppies are ready to "pop"

    Other Fish
    I have two female guppies that came to me pregnant, and I realized I have no clue what to watch for to know when to remove them from the main tank. I've never had live bearers before. What will they look like? Someone mentioned them being "square"-ish. Here are the two girls about 2 weeks ago...
  3. Prego, Parasite, or Just A Fatty???

    Other Fish
    So I have two corys in my tank. One is an Emerald and the other is an Albino. I don't think two different kinds could mate but my Emerald has a round tummy (I don't have a good enough picture to show sadly) I've done a little research and those two are the big reasons it could be so, along with...

  6. Molly pregnant for too long

    Other Fish
    On Christmas, I got 3 mollies and 2 platies. One molly was a boy, the other 2 were girls. Immediately I saw the boy mating with one of the girls, and assumed she would get pregnant. Her stomach was getting bigger slowly, like I would imagine a normal pregnant fish would get. Her due date was...

    A few days ago I brought home a few Mollies, 2 of which were girls. One of the females was slightly larger, but was still normal looking compared to her previous tank mates. That one is a gold molly and I am kinda excited if she is pregnant. I'm not sure if I have identified the gravid spot...

  13. Guppy Fry Care???

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Hi sorry for posting in the betta section but I feel I will get more responses this way, it is important. As with betta care sites, many of the guppy sites have conflicting info when it comes to fry care. Are there any betta lovers out there that have knowledge and experience with guppy...
