Hi all,

I thought I best join this lovely site since its held a few answers for me in my google searches...

I'm a new aquarist, well, 9 months in. I have two smallish tanks holding a few guppies, two of whom appear pregnant and will soon to multiply!

I've had to "refresh and restart" my bigger tank which had some sick fish in it so I'm cycling it now with the two pregnant ladies, but doing frequent water changes so they don't get too stressed. My ammonia seem to be holding around the .25 mark and I'm 3 weeks in. The girls seem happy compared to being in the other tank where the boys were constantly at them. Ugh males.. Ha

Nice to meet you all!

Thanks for the welcome!

Re the endler guppies.. I have two plus a standard male guppie - so I'm not quite sure what I'll end up with from the females. Can they cross breed?

Kez.

Hi, welcome to the forum I had thought it was possible for cross-breeding.

Thanks again for the welcome!

Finally, tonight I measured nitrite in my tank that I've been cycling (fish in) for 4 weeks.

I had to completely clean and refresh my tank after a store bought fish apparently brought in a disease.. Killed all my fish, then, proceeded to kill the replacement fish! So have been developing a new cycle, and I'm an impatient person... Lol
