I have a pregnent goldfish, I've put it in a aquarium net breeder and but I don't know what to do after that when the eggs are going to be there.

Reply. Hello Fr??ic, we do not recommend putting female Goldfish in an aquarium net breeder to lay their eggs.

Female Goldfish must spawn with male Goldfish, who fertilize the eggs.

Hello. I've had a beta since last January and he's been doing really well. However the past few days he has not been swimming around at all when he used to before, and he's only spending his time down at the bottom of the bowl. He isn't eating as much either.
 
I don't know if their is anything I can do for him. He always had so much personality compared to other Betas and now he doesn't do anything. If you know what's going on or if there is anything I can do PLEASE let me know! He's the neatest fish!
 
Thank you,
Miranda Bayard
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Miranda. You should immediately give your Betta all six steps of the Recommended Treatment.

This includes: clean your fish bowl, clean the gravel if you have any (and you should), change 20% of the water, add the correct amount of Quick Cure, add the correct amount of Aquarium Salt, and increase the temperature of the water by 4 degrees F.

Hello, I just want know what are the chances for my Guppies surviving from 7 gallon pot with lilies on it . It's more like a miniature pond?
 
Mario C.
 
 
  
Reply. Hello Mario, I assume your pot is outside, since it contains lilies.

Right now it's late spring or early summer here, and as soon as the temperature of the water in the pot warms to 70 degrees F., the water will be warm enough for the Guppies.

Guppies need a temperature of at least 70 degrees F. The ideal temperature for Fancy Guppies is 78 to 82 degrees F.

But they can adjust to 70 degrees F., if the temperature is lowered gradually.

Click here for more about Guppies.

If your Guppies are now in an aquarium and the thermometer reads 80 degrees F., you should not take them outside and put them in the pot with water at 70 degrees.

This temperature change of 10 degrees would be too great a shock for the Guppies.

Some people would put put the Guppies in a plastic bag and float it in the pot for an hour or so to equalize the   temperatures.

But a 10 degree change in temperature over a period of one hour can shock the Guppies too.

A better method would be to turn the heater in your aquarium down a couple of degrees. Let your Guppies adjust to the new lower temperature for couple of days.

Then turn the heater down again. Repeat this until the temperature is within 2 degrees of the temperature of the water in the pot.

Then move the Guppies to the pot, and they should not be shocked by the move.

I caution you to be sure there is nothing in the pot, or lily, or soil, or anything else that is contaminated and might poison the Guppies.

Click here for more about avoiding contamination.

I have assumed that the other fish in your aquarium can adapt to the cooler water.

You should also be cautious and not put more than a 3 or 4 Guppies in the pot, because the pot has no filter and so is limited in how many fish it can contain.

Be sure to remove 20% of the water from your pot twice a week and refill the pot with fresh water.

Hi, I have some comments and then two questions.
 
Question 1: I have a ghost shrimp in a community tank (small tetras) that is full of eggs and has already released several. What do I need to do to protect those eggs and see that they grow to be adult shrimp?
 
Question 2: I recently bought a female betta from a local fish store that was brighter in color and had larger fins than the female bettas that you sent. Are the bettas you sent fully mature or will they fill out as they grow? (Incidently, the store bought betta developed ICH two days after I bought her and died two days later.)
 
Comments: I appreciate the quality of fish you shipped to me. I have bought several fish from local pet stores and my survival rate from them has always been around 80%. The majority of those deaths occured a day after their warranty period expired. Also, the majority of illnesses that I have had to deal with came from newly introduced fish from the local pet store.
 
Of your fish, I had three DOAs (due to a postal error, my shipment made it 48hrs after you sent it so I can't blame you for the DOAs) and all of the remaining (forty odd) are healthy and exciting to watch. I was skeptical of buying from you online originally but you definitely have proven yourself with your quality.
 
Thanks

Reply. Hello Marc. There are many species of Ghost Shrimp. A female of the species we have attaches her eggs to the underside of her abdomen.

I think the eggs hatch and the baby shrimp ride around on the underside of the adult female for a while.

When a female Shrimp has eggs or babies under her abdomens, she will move her appendages to circulate the water under her abdomen.

I think these appendages are called swimmerets. This circulation will bring more water that is rich in oxygen and probably has bits of food for the baby shrimp.

The young shrimp may leave their mother to forage for themselves and return to the safety of being under her, until they are large enough to finally leave her and permanently be on their own.

I have not raised baby shrimp, but I would recommend that you move the female shrimp to a container of her own, where other fish and shrimp can't bother her or her babies. A one gallon fish bowl would be a nice place for her.

The female Bettas you got from us are very young. Perhaps three months old and not mature. Just starting to mature and gain color.

Their color usually intensifies some as they mature. Their colors also darken, if the gravel under them is darker. I often keep black gravel in my fish bowls, because the colors of all the fish darken.

I was glad to read that you have been generally please with the fish you got from us, and you are enjoying them.

I wish we could have avoided the delay in the shipment, and sorry to read that three fish died during the shipment.

We will gladly replace those three fish.

Hi, I need your help. I bought 3 mollies a couple of months ago and to begin with, I don't know how to distinguish between male and female. also, about a month ago I realized that one molly suddenly appeared to be bent (the latter half the fish was severely bent downwards) and the fish would just remain very docile at the bottom of the tank and then eventually died. I immediately scrapped down the tank, cleaned every thing and built it back up again. the other two mollies were O.K. for a couple of weeks and now I have discovered another bent molly in the tank. I don't know what to do? Please help. p.s. please hurry
 
Thanks
Ian.
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Ian, I have heard of this happening to Guppies, which are closely related to Mollies. The cause of this problem in Guppies has been verified to be dietary.

I recommend you feed your Mollies floating flake food and freeze dried blood worms, which are actually dried mosquito larvae. Both of these foods are sold in most stores that sell pet fish.

Click here for more about feeding fish.

I also feed my Mollies a few live Black Worms.

I have some fancy guppies and love watching them ..... but over the weekend i ran into a fan tail guppy ....... they look pretty much the same .......  what i wanted to know is the difference ..  and should i keep them in a seperate tank ?? the only big difference i can see is the fan tails have a black spot on them  like where the rib cage would be ....... where can i find pictures of the different species ???
 
thank you in advance for your response,
Rose
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Rose, Guppies are all the same species, named Poecilia reticulata. Click here for more information about Guppies.

Since they are all they same species, the different color varieties can interbreed.

You'll need to keep them in separate aquariums, if you do not want them to interbreed.

Hi, Love your website! Thanks for all the good info you post here. I have been looking for yellow and green Bettas at a reasonable price, and will order some soon. I recently started breeding Bettas and use sponge filters in the tanks with the fry.
 
I was reading your information and comments about guppy breeding and noticed someone was looking for sponge filters. The International Betta Congress (http://ibc.bettas.org/) sells sponge filters that can be ordered at the website. I have a couple of local pet stores that can order them for me when I need them even though they do not carry them as store stock, so it pays to ask. The sponge filters are also referred to as dirt magnets.
 
Thanks,
Kathy
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Kathy, thank your for your compliment about this web site and thank you for the information about the sponge filters.

The sponge filters may help raising baby Bettas in aquariums. I was never able to raise Bettas in aquariums, but raised lots of them with very little work in ponds.

Of course it only works during the summer when the water is warm, and the pond can't have anything that will eat baby Bettas.

Lately my molly as been bugging my female betta. she used to be a nice color blue now her color is fading. they have only been together for a few days and about a day ago he has been bugging her. Her fins don't look nipped or anything. Why is this happening? Should I separate them? Or will it pass?
 
Also how do I tell a male molly from a female molly?
 
Thanks,
Debbie
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Debbie, yes you should separate them. You can keep the female Betta in a one gallon fish bowl.

Like some people, some fish just don't get along with each other.
