  1. AHHHH!!!!!!!! Ok so my boyfriend has a fishtank in in computer room and he is going 2 have guppies... so ne way I have set it up had it running for 2 weeks half filled with water from my fish tanks and 1/2 filled with new water (with ager etc of course) I 1/3 changed the water b4 I put em in... i bought 4 guppies (2 M 2 F) and a plant and added to the tank saturday afternoon... they looked great and happy all weekend swimming around and were VERY happy 2 have a small feed not having 2 compete with so many fish.... This morning (monday) I was rushing out the door and was just going 2 turn on their tank light and saw one was dead and 2 I dont think will last the day!!!... I know the water should have been changed or something but I was already late 4 work as I had 2 bury the dead one.... I have small guppies which I have had for ages in a section of my divied fighter tank and they r happy... (used 2 have a house mate with a tropical tank and he didnt care about the babies so i used 2 save em grow in in my fighter tank and put em back... I have about 3 left from once he left which I plan 2 add 2 this problem tanbk once it is right) I think maybe they got cold? They have a heater but it was a big frost this morning and the room they r in is off the garage so I dont think it is insulated like the house... he really wants a guppy tank out there and it was looking nice when they were all happy! WHAT SHOULD I DO??????????
  2. I dont know if it is a pleco.... spose it could be they r just called cat fish round here and sold as tropical... I think the goldfish tank will b 2 cold 4 him
  3. Hi... I am moving house and putting all my stuff in storage untill the end of the year... ne way where I will b staying I dont have much room.... ATM I have 2 tanks one tropical (almost empty) and a goldfish tank. I was wondering if it would b ok to put the few tropicals in with the goldfish as I dont have room for the tropical tank. I have a handfull of guppys in there and a bristle nose catfish. Can I ad the heater 2 the goldfish tank or wont they like that much? Also would they eat the guppys??? Im all ears :listen: ne one help me out? JAW
  4. Ok how weird is this... no males guppy but babies!!!.... Well there was a male but he died a few days b4 she last gave birth... so obversly guppies can get pregnant again when they r already pregnent!!! How wierd but cool is that! I am just hoping that some turn out like the father... i saved 1 from her 1st lot and 4 from her 2nd and all 5 of them r geting the yellow tail with the black dots on them... not i have some wich r small still from another lot... there r a lot of them... and now the new bubs... now r they all going 2 look the same? Cause that is kinda boring!... the male was black with a red tail and i want one of the young ones 2 look like that... the mother is like a clear sort of peach colour with a yellow tail. The 3 biggest ones have just become big enough 2 go back into the main tank so thats good as it is pretty bare (out of the 6 guppies i bought i only have 1 the female left!) No there is nothing wrong with the tank dont worry there was white spot when i got the guppies but that was a long time ago now... iw as just glad it fluked in being a male and female that suvived and now i have lots of guppies!
  5. ahhhh!!!this is terrible! How horrible!!!! Y do these things happen 2 my fish! I am feeding them tropical fish flakes which i know is not the best 4 them but they can kind of eat it if they try. i had a black more with moth rot but i cleared it up and it was neva cottony... howeva althogh he did get better his mouth was deformed and eventunatly he diede even though he lived happily for about 8 or 10 weeks with no signs of ne thing only he got 2 lazy 2 eat as it was an effort 4 him. I dont know whee in canberra i can get special medication... what is it called???
  6. I have 3 female fighters who were all happy till the newet one grew up and i think may actually b a male :angry: (darn pet shop)... ne way one day all of a sudden became agressive and atacked the other 2 really bad ripping off all fins and many scales... ... ne way the fins r groing back but both of them had this furry mold sort of stuff on their mouths wich looks really gross... I have added prima fix and multi cure... ne way seems 2 b going away... the girls have shrunk though as they rnt eating much... n e way one of then and i presume the other has a gapping hole where her mouth used 2 b and it looks pretty awful...poor thing... this sux what can i do? Obversly she is not with the other f/m what eva it is and will NOT b going back in there but what can i do 4 her now? Her mouth has been eaten away!!!!
  7. ok so 10 gallon is 40L or 4?... I think 40 sounds better.... Well we have a pretty empty 2foot tank... It has 12 tetras 5 bristlenose one albina catfish and one guppy although I have many of her babies on thir way 2 being alowed back into the tank... would it be ok 2 have the girls in with them? would I need 5 or would the 2 bashed up ones be ok with lots of hidy places from each other and other fish?
  8. So in a 40L would u just have the 5 females or would u add other small fish 2?
  9. Yeah the 2 older ones have no fins at all left!!! They r in a divided spawning tank floating in the trop tank... i dont want 2 put them in vases as i prefer 2 keep them in a heated tank
  10. well that didnt work! __________________ I......I...............I......I I......I...............I......I I......I________.I......I I......I...............I......I I___I_________I___ I OK full stops r nothing just 2 keep it spaced... I and _ are glass im not good at this! edit: this sux it looks right in edit oh well c the 1st side... its a miror image of the other side!
  11. Im not sure about gallons.... I think it is about a 25L tank... the girls section is much bigger though __________________ I I I I I I I I I I I I I I________ I I eg of divide I I I I I___ I________ I___ I
  12. I have a tank i have divided into 4... 3 males (although i only have 2 and the 3rd section is currently guppy babies) and one 4 females.... NE WAY... I had one female... got 2 more 2 go with her and she got pop eye from the stress and died.... One female became dominate so i got another female 2 balance it out... she was younger and smaller and all was good... untill yesterday!!!! She is bigger now and decided she wants 2 b boss and has toally mamed the other 2! So they r in floating spawning tanks in the trop tank... They look shocking! I have added some multicure 2 prefent them getting ne thing since they have tawn fins (what is left of em) and missing scales and all sorts of terrible things! Is there ne thing i can do 2 prevent this hapening again or should i just keep em separated?
  13. Well its all 2 late 4 him now... when they give up on them selves what can u do... i have cleaned out the tank and the other 2 r fine... although on a none related point my fantail has sort of like growths on his tail... dunno what it is he looks all helthy... its not white spot as the other tank had it and it looks different ne ideas?
  14. No they r in a section of my divided tank... i scopped em out one by one as the mother gave birth.. hence 2 say i was distracted 4 many hours staring into the tank... lucky 4 me it so happened when i was home watching!!!
  15. I clean the tank with a vac 1/3 once a week sometimes every 2nd if i am busy. Water seems fine... what he had was mouth rot... one died from it but i saved this one... but it distored his mouth giving him a puckered look making it hard 4 him 2 eat... he has been fine ova the mouth rot 4 months but the distortion unfourntatuly remailns...
  16. I had a calico fain tail that constantly changed colours his black would turn from small brown dots 2 black ones 2 having much black on him and back 2 the start in a number of days... u could c changes ova night
  17. My black moor had mouth rot and eva since he has had a squashed mouth and doesnt eat 2 much... it was always an effort 2 eat and lately he just hasnt bothered... i wasnt 2 worried but now he is getting weaker and is sitting on the bottom... he has had the mouth problem 4 months and has been fine but now im not so sure... poor baby. i have added prima fix... ne thing else i can do he isnt interested in food
  18. Its only on plants.. gravel is cleaned by my catfish... it isnt as furry as that in the pic is is just single long strands that r thinker than that furry one... if that make sence
  19. There is a black hair like algea growing in my tropical tank.... unlike other algea the suckign cat fish dont seem 2 eat it... it is growing on all the plants... should i be worried? All fish r happy and everything else is ok..
  20. Yeah finally thy breed they must b happy... i have saved ova 20 babies... they r so cute!
  21. Thx Jen... Lets hope so... It just sux last yr i had no trouble with my fish and now i have moved house and there is always something wrong! One of my flat mates just thinks i waste my time... but i love my babies and when they r all fine they really r relaxing... unfournunatly when they r not they r a bit of a stress!...still love em though
  22. she died.... yeah she was stressed because of me adding new females 2 the tank... one day she was fine, the next she had one huge eye, the next she was . poor thing. Ok I have been talking 2 others from Canberra and we think maybe there is some bacteria in the water at the moment. Many ppl have had problems with their fish. I mean we have 3 tanks here and all 3 have a problem atm!!! Mouth rot, popeye and whitespot
  23. Ok it is actually primafix which is 4 backterial infections which is what popeye is yeah???? How long do u think b4 i might c changes???
