New, hi and some advice please

It didn't cross my mind about cycling - they don't like ammonia or nitrite at all, so it's more likely to be that.
Large daily changes I'm afraid.....

Hi all

Next problem ... I believe one of our neon tetras is pregnant. I’ve googled a pic of a pregnant one and it looks identical to ours about to lay her eggs.

We don’t know how this happened or how to look after them. Will this cause any problems with cycling the tank as it’s only a few weeks into the cycle? I’ll try our local pet shop tomorrow to see if they can assist, but anything I should do overnight ? Thanks

Ps also how do I stop this happening again in the future as I don’t want 50 tetras!

You won't get any neon tetra babies, trust me. Neons are egg scatterers and need specific conditions for the eggs and babies to develop - which you just won't get in a home aquarium (breeders need special set-ups to do it). So don't worry there Smile

If you don't want babies, avoid livebearers (guppies, platies, swordtails, mollies) - they WILL give you babies. Some other types of fish may give you the occasional surprise fry but the vast majority will be eaten in a community tank.

It's much more likely that your neon is bloated from overfeeding Wink Cut back on what you feed which will also help to protect the fish during the cycle.

Thanks for the peace of mind!

Will the eggs affect the water in any way if it does lay them? (M

Females will get gravid whether there are males or not. Wink
They normally drop the eggs anyway.
