About Me

  1. The person that was taking care of this fish no longer works in the office. What type is it so we can try to find a home for it?
  2. Hi, Can anyone tell me what kind of fish this is? It was in with a shrimp order I got in October, and it was so tiny I almost didn't see it. Now its about the size of an endler. Thanks in advance!
  3. Is there a diffance between a celestial pearl danio and a galaxy rasbora or is it a case of two common names for the same fish?
  4. Hello, New forum user here, never done this kind of social media before so please forgive me if I screw it up. This is my 55 gallon tank, set up in May, 2020. I moved fish from some of my other tanks to stock it with corys, pencil fish, SAE's, one pearl gourami, flame tetras, emperor tetras, and bristlenose plecos. I also took all the plants and decor from tanks I've had for ages, so no new stuff other than substrate (eco complete) and mechanicals (heater, etc.). In June, a little baby fish showed up. He was obviously different because he has vertical stripes! I have no other fish that look like him in any of my tanks. He's been doing well, he's gone from hiding in plants when he was small to being out and about now that he's grown. He's currently about 3" long, and very fat! He's bigger than most of the fish in the tank now, except for the SAE's, pearl gourami, and papa pleco. I have no idea what kind of fish he is, or how big he'll get, or if he'll become aggressive with my other fish (so far he's been fine). So, any ideas where he came from or what he is? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!
  5. Not sure what type of guppie this is. any one have any ideas
  6. So I ordered some green fire tetra from my local fish store, all 10 of those are perfectly fine, but I got this random tetra that's so much bigger than the rest of them and unlike the rest of the tetras that I got, this one has not colored up and behaves so much differently than the rest of them, so my question is what is this? An adult female that's just really pale or a completely different species? Update: When it passes by, I see the faintest of blue stripe down it's body.
  7. These fry are much smaller than my normal guppy fry and they also are blue and seem to have allot of shimmer. I've only ever had guppies in my tank, it could've come in on a pregnant females but doesn't look like my other fry? Thoughts?

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/y3sksyd1hn9pfxs/20210102_095245.jpg?dl=0I recently bought some guppies to breed. I wanted to know what strain of guppy is this female guppy?
  9. Hi guys, I'm sure there are lot of beginners that often see a fish in a youtube video that catches their eye, but unfortunately you don't know the name. I would like to start this thread (I think there's none?) so people can come and post a screenshot of a fish and have it identified by the more knowledgeable people, that way we can keep these requests in one single thread? If an admin thinks this is sticky worthy, cool! I'll start, I saw this tetra in one of cory's videos, anyone knows which one is it?
  10. These are my guys. They are gorgeous derps waging wars on bubbles at the surface. About a half-dollar body size. This was their aquabid listing: https://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/auction/closed.cgi?view_closed_item&fwangelfish1600636791 Listed as "Blue Marble wide fin angelfish" In person, they have pretty obvious pearl scale to me - it looks like they are made of tin foil in spots. They look basically like this: https://www.angelfishcanada.com/angelfish/Philippine-Blue-Marble-Pearlscale-Widefin-Angelfish-p138324847 Did the seller just leave off a few words in describing them? I don't know much about types of angelfish yet. Also - how much larger should I anticipate they will get before potentially pairing off? They are in a community 75 now but I plan to move pairs out, just thinking through when I need to have more tanks available.
  11. I'm having trouble remembering what this guy is. Any help would be great.
  12. Can someone identify this fish for me? Thanks!
  13. I bought 6 rainbow fish the other night that were labeled Bosemani but it was right next to the turquoise tank. Did they sell me turquoise rainbows? https://i.imgur.com/761hgtC.jpghttps://i.imgur.com/GZI1AhC.jpg https://i.imgur.com/A6yGGro.jpg
  14. 6 months ago I bought 6 juliis. After about 2 months I could only count 5 just figured there was a death I couldn't find. One of the 5 died about 2 weeks ago so I thought there were 4 left. Today I decided to remove the last decoration that wasn't a plant, a big dragon. That opened up some room to spread out the dragon rock. As I did that I found the missing fish. It is half as big as the others. Now I wonder if this is a julii and the others are false or vice versa. Since this one does not school with the others should I move it to another tank? Its hiding in the rocks still. This was the best shot I could get. Other picture is of what the other 4 look like
  15. We didn't see the differences when we picked him up, he was all alone in a tank by himself in the corner, as were two others, so we foolishly "rescued" all three. And when we got him home and got a real good look, we didn't think he'd make it through the night. He seemed smudged and his eyes were sunk in! But he did, then a week, then a month, and more. He's doing well with our other "rescued" false jullii now regrowing their barbels in a quarantine tank. He's active, but not as strong yet, and has remained smaller. Anyone know what he is? I've looked at pictures online of different corydoras but haven't yet found something that seems to match all three of his "racoon" mask, the large bluish dots near the tail fin along with his dark dorsal. And that's ignoring his odd little eyes. Someday we'd like him to have his own kind to swim with, if we knew what to look for. Much appreciated if anyone has suggestions.
  16. Hi all- I'm hoping somebody can help me positively identify the species of these two guppies. Thanks in advance! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŸ
  17. Hello, I bought this Pleco off Petco a few months ago, I have since forgotten what species it is. Can someone tell me what species you think it is. I do recall its max size was less then 7 - 8 inches. I thought it was called a butterfly Pleco or Salfin Pleco but the images look similar to me . Thank you.
  18. I think it's fun when I get the chance to help identify a fish. I would guess others on here get similar satisfaction from it. Feel free to post a picture (doesn't have to be yours) of a fish or plant. If you would like help identifying give us as much info as you have on it. Or if you know what it is and you want to give others the chance to give their best at an ID feel free to post a pic to see if others can get it. This can also be a chance to learn about new species. I'll start can any one ID this fish. I'll give you a hint it's a US native
  19. Hello all! First time post here. I recently bought three fish thinking they were otos. Have I been bamboozled and are my poor nanos about to be eaten? Happy thanksgiving!
  20. I went by my las today and they had these super cool looking fish. I have never seen them anywhere before. Anyone have an idea what they are?
  21. Finally got ahold of some multifasciatus. My friend/owner of a lfs was able to get me some. Since he was doing me a favor bringing them in and giving me a break on price they were left in the bag from the vendor and given directly to me. When I got them in the breeder box for acclimating/inspection I spotted a hitchhiker in the group. The pictured fish. It's eyes are much larger and noticeably different. My guess was an ocellatus but have no idea. Looks like a tiny Pike. Anyway thanks for your time. S1
  22. The essentials, because it's late and I am so, so tired. Set up a 36g, added 2 juvenile goldfish (lionchu and oranda) in on October 1 Set up a 12g in early November(? probably November 1), intending to keep and breed rice fish, when I can afford some. Added the plants the goldies were tearing up around then. I'd intended to get a good light, but then life happened and the tank went more or less ignored until today. I was planning to ride out the ammonia spike from the substrate and have a little fishless cycle. A few days ago, I added an onion plant from my aunty's tank into the 12g, because it was too tall for her aquariums. She is breeding guppies for her outside ponds, but I'm 90% sure the onion plant came from a 10g with no fish. This evening, I noticed at least four fry swimming around the 12g. One isn't doing well; it's floating in the current of the sponge filter, but the other three-ish seem healthy. Ultimately I'd like to know if these guys are guppies or goldfish (I'm thinking goldfish? Maybe??). And if they are goldfish, is a lionchu/oranda even...healthy? Viable?
  23. From the last live stream, what is this silver fish with the black/yellow striped tail?
  24. I have been looking around but can't find anything.
