fish gal 1 - 2011-02-02
Hi I just finished establishing bio filtration with 1 female sword tail, I added a male flame dwarf gourami and she keeps biting them. If I add more swordtails will she calm down , or will they just join in and hurt the gouramis?
Also if I add more gouramis will she back off?

I was thinking of breeding her but now I'm not sure will she just become more aggressive?

btw I have them in a 24 gal tank.

I have 2 dalmation mollies. From what I can tell, one female and one male. I got a silver molly, but the female dalmation chased it, and killed it. Both when I got them were a silver/tan with black spots. Now the male has turned almost fully black with some blue, green, gold scales, and his tail has turned from white to a dark orange, almost amber. The female looks like she is getting a little big, I was wondering how long a gestation period for the females takes.

    Males have a gonopodium. It looks like a pencil but in most males it appears long. If your female always kills your's m/f molly then before adding a new molly in tank you better let your new molly (inside the plastic bag) float inside your tank and then feed your's molly's in the tank. After 10-20 minutes open the plastic bag and feed them in the bag (keep the bag open during they eat) after they eat take an net in your hand & pour bag water in the net & ensure your fishes do not fall on the floor (do not pour bag water in the tank bcos in the fish shop there is always diseases in the water if you want your's fish to get disease then pour the bag water inside your tank) if you want to contact me then type purushrut@gmail.com.

Hello fish lovers. My name is Maerzad Nazha. I've started taking care of my fish when I was in preschool. At that time I failed to take care of my fish (before the celebration of my birthday) until I found this site! Now I'm 12 years old. I've found everything from this website(Animal-World). It makes me happy now. It's full of information that I need. Now I have a bigger fish tank. I will never lose the kindness this website gave me...

    Hey Maerzad. My name is Tara Potter. My story is almost the same as yours. I had my first fish when I was quite young and they never seemed to live. Up until I found this site, I really didn't have much luck with fish. Although I am a total animal lover. So I kept trying. I have had many many fish. When I first found this site, I had just won some goldfish at my local fair. That was when I was 6. I still have those fish because of all the tips I found. I am 12 almost 13 and I am now an experienced fish owner. I am very pleased with this site. I am hoping for many more years of happy fish keeping with helpful tips from this site.

Want to try something fun? Raise your very own created VARIATUS PLATIES!
After you set up your 20 gal. tank, and it is well established, buy 1 male swordtail and 3 female platies. After they breed and have babies the babies will be what is known as VARIATUS PLATIES!
I like to experment by buying each fish a different color so each baby batch is different colored. Then you can male/female pairs of the raised fish off and breed to each other for even more interesting colors and shapes. You'll always have fish, and you'll get some beautiful ones at that! Have Fun!

I have four sailfin mollies. 2 dalmation and 2 gold, my male gold is not doing well. I really hope you can help. For the last week he has been swimming at an angle and he uses his body to swim instead of his fins, his body moves from left to right to swim. I am really concerned. I don't know what to do?

I'm trying to persuade my parents to get me a molly but they wont budge. But I also want to figure out if mollies can breed with other types of mollies, you know like an inbreed. And I heard that these are the easiest fish to breed. Is this true and can they inbreed with other mollies?

I have two tanks. A small one gallon( it's not even a full gallon tank) and a five gallon tank. I have four guppies in the five gallon tank. These fish are beautiful and fun to watch. I love to see my guppies. I say a guppy is the best fish to start out with if you think gold fish are boring.

How will I know if my silver molly is pregnant or if it's just a silver balloon molly?

    The Gestation period of a Molly/live bearer is about 28 days so you should know by now if it needs the number for the CSA.

I have 2 female swordtails, I got them from a pet store, one was pregnant and so far I have only seen 1 baby fish... Did it eat the others? Do they give live birth all at once or every few days until the babies are ready? o_o I've already put the baby in a separate place away from the mother..

    It's a good thing you put the baby in a separate...
    This morning my S.T fish gave birth to a total of 9 babies this was every 10 minute, while giving birth she then started hunting them and eating them, I managed to save 6 of them and separated them.
    The Female Sword tail looked hungry but would not eat flakes so I fed her blood worms, and she just kept on eating and eating.
