Cinnebuns Posted January 30, 2022 Share Posted January 30, 2022 New month = New chances at spending money on fish!! So my first question is regarding filter setup for split 10-gallon. I have had this cycling for what seems like forever because my guppy has yet to drop fry (see further down on that). One benefit of having some more time is I now have the funds to buy some sponge filters. My question is if I'm better off (money and filter wise) running 2 sponge filters, one on each side, or keep the HOB filter running with a sponge running on the other side. Also I assume the aquarium coop nano would be the correct size? Now onto this frustrating fish I call my female guppy. If you have seen my previous posts you will know I'm coming up on 2.5 months and NO FRY. Twice she got very large and then lost all the weight. I'm assuming she aborted the fry. She is now alone in a 5-gallon with limited sound etc to diminish her stress. At what point do I give up on her? I intended to get other females eventually but I wanted to start with just 1 so I could learn some things before getting too into it, but coming up on 3 months and no babies is making me wanna give up on her. My male is a beautiful mutt, almost looks red dragon, so I would love to breed him but I can't if the female keeps holding them! Any ideas? Pics of the divided 10 and male with the female about a month ago for reference. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
