If there are males and females in the same tank they're breeding!!!

What kind(s) do you have? Females could already be preggo if they were recently purchased...

Have you bred guppies before?
***************************************

Did pwc on OEBT tank, watched a couple of them swim and hide. Pwc on 37G and pwc on recovering betta tank. Watched the fish a little in all the tanks to see how everyone was doing.

Yesterday, added a M & a F Fiddler Crabs into my 72G. They have driftwood to crawl out on, and I will be getting them a cork /or other island to bask on next week. It will be interesting to see if the mystery snails crawl up there and lay eggs and if the crabs want to eat the eggs. Adding some salt to the tank to help them along. Guy I got them from at lfs says his are 3 years old like that in his aquarium. My daughter fell in love with them. In a few weeks if they seem to be getting along in the tank, I will likely get a couple more females, otherwise back to the lfs.

Moving my 9 Blue Tetras over to the 72G today from the QT.
They love chasing each other at lightning speed, they are really going to love the 48" of horizontal racing room!!

Whelp! Another 50% water change on my African tank. All is clear and looking good!! I plan on stopping Friday. So that will be the massive water change and hopefully all will be ok. This is day 13 of ich battle. No losses so that's a good thing.

Now I wait....

Bagged

2 Tiger Barbs
3 sepae tetras
2 black skirts
2 angels
1 red paradise gourami
1 banded/striped lepernascus I think

All being taken to a new home.
I'm not sure if I'm keeping the juvenile convicts I have. I'm thinking the peacocks and electric yellows will be better

Mixing tetra, barbs and angels with cichlids? Your tetra and barbs should ideally be in schools. Tiger barbs are nasty little things look out. But id be more worried about you cichlid mixing and your tank size.

Put a marble sized mystery snail in my crayfish tank to work on the algae, and I'm pretty sure he got grabbed by the momma cray within a minute. I was hoping it would be big enough to make it. Guess not.
Sorry 'bout your snail. Crays will attempt to eat anything!

Yup. I mean, I have tons of snails. I'm just disappointed that something's not in there eating the algae. But I'm going to be moving the cfl that's in that tank to my 10 gallon. It's just too much light for the 5. Algae is kind of overwhelming it, and the plants that I put it in there for have been devoured.

You mentioned yellow labs and peacocks too? Mixing tetra ect with africans is a bad idea.

I never said I was keeping any of the tetras. All I have now is the convict cichlids. I am planning on getting some in the new tank I have.
