    I don't like the shape of rainbows. I love their colours and scales.

    I promised myself not to go back to Guppies

    Im worried that later today it might turn yellow. Do i turn co2 down or wait and see?... Still very nervous not to gas my babies

    Also film is back keep in mind did 40% new water yesterday. Took out the skimmer due to co2 any other solutions or how can i get rid of it?

    Juat following what you and a few members told me and it seems to work. Might need a stronger pump to increase the flow.

    Got it from n1 petworld R100 for 5l.

    Only personal preference. Their colours is nice and like i said their scales but Their body is bulky compared to their heads like peacocks.

    Other nano fish straight body with head. Like neons, guppies...

    Interested in Spotted blue eyes

    Also had goldfish in a bowl with no filter. Ages ago. First serious,, tank was a 3ft with commets, tatras, rosy barbs, plastic plants and colored gravel. No cycling.
