Hi Andy,


Good to see you back!


A retired biker huh? I had a Rocket up until recently, needed a new bathroom so alas, sold to the highest bidder it was  :(



The previous owner was a fish expert, but he sold the site to the current owner who admits he knows nothing about fish which is how I ended up as a moderator.


I do know that they look super pretty and may have even learnt a thing or two since perusing, I am of course passionate about keeping this all going and keeping it up with the times. Sue and other mods are of course excellent custodians and are all super helpful to the people who use the resource, a fact I'm sure we are all grateful for  :cheers:

What's going on at Thinkfish / DownTime
« on: November 06, 2018, 11:06:13 AM »
We recently had a period of downtime.


This was caused by a network failure with our hosts.


Apologies for the temporary loss of facility!

Think you know your tropical fish hobby?

Become part of Thinkfish lore!

Check out the list of the sometimes obscure and common questions that people ask and see if you have an answer!

Most answers should be pretty straightforward and will be moved to here https://forums.thinkfish.co.uk/extended-faq-new-q-and-a's/ after a moderator has had the chance to review things. However, in the event that there are differing opinions then it might need to stay here in this thread a little while longer. 

Once we have an agreed settled answer, we'll then credit those who participated/debated the finally agreed answer.Some have simple yes and no answers and could be grouped together and some require a bit more depth and explanation and some are just stupid (but people ask them).

The questions are generally of the form can, how, what, where, will, which etc.Go ahead, pick one for yourself and give it a go!

Just copy a question, paste it as the subject of your post and answer away!

Extended FAQ New Q and A's / Can tropical fish change gender?
« on: October 28, 2018, 01:11:06 PM »
Can tropical fish change gender?
Thanks to @Sue  for this answer!

No. This misconception arises because all fry look female. At puberty, male fish begin to change appearance. Late developing males retain their female appearance for a longer than usual time, and the owner is convinced that the fish is a female which has turned into a male. This delayed puberty is well known with swordtails.

There are some species of fish where subordinate males take on female appearance to avoid being bullied by the dominant male. These so-called sleeper fish may look female but they are male, and never take on full female colouring. If the dominant male should die, one of the subordinate males changes to typical male appearance. An  example of this is cockatoo cichlids, Apistogramma cacatuoides.

Not at the moment no, it's a useful add on on three fronts.


1. I like how it will surface old threads for indexing and increase the footprint in search engines.

2. We can optionally split new responses off in old threads and effectively start new ones, especially if the advice has changed substantially.

3. It may entice old users back into the fold via notifications too.


There are a lot of useful existing threads here which just fail to see the light of the day, so hopefully this will help surfacing good stuff.

We are looking for high quality pics of snails you might have in your aquarium to update our snails page.


Please post them here and I'll upload the best ones to this page https://www.thinkfish.co.uk/fish/ornamental-aquarium-snail.html


High res closeups will work best, along with the name and type please.  :cheers:
