  1. Fish Videos
    This is the largest fish in the fish room, and he has a real attitude problem. He eats or kills anything that I put in the tank with him. However, everyone is amazed at how pretty he is. He is now a member of my family. https://youtu.be/QQSsx6DGXsA

    Setting up a 29 Gallon freshwater, and was looking to put in two pairs of dwarf cockatoo cichlids, which my LFS told would work as long as it had enough hiding places, and wanted to fill up the tank with some dither fish. Cardinal tetras are a personal favorite of mine, as are glow-light and...

    My betta was staying in the same place overnight and I was worried. Today after I came from school and fed him he was in the same place that he was overnight. When I moved his net for water changes, he just started moving like nothing. When I showed it to him again up close he flared. :razz:

  13. Cichlids
    Hello to all, I am wondering if anyone can provide some insight on mixing chemicals and medicine. I ask because I believe my roommates green terror cichlid has the ich or Saprolegnia Fungus (See pic below) and I do not want to over-treat the tank. The green terror is in a 40 gallon hex tank...

    Hey guys, I'm planning on eventually getting a pair of these pretty fish for my 20 gallon long. Any suitable tank mates? I was planning on getting 6 tiger barbs to start, and I heard they are much less aggressive if you keep them in shoals of 6 or more. Is that right? Any other ideas?
  16. Cichlids
    Hi there, I'm new and this is my first post but I'm sure there will be many more. Any way... My questions are about pike cichlids. I have a 40 gallon tank, I know that's a little small for most pike. The tank is custom (36'' long 16" tall 18" deep) so it's not as tall but it's bigger front to...

    Can you guess me? Calling Cichlid identity pros! ;) I've been keeping fish for over 6years but I'm rather new when it to some cichlids(I've just kept rams, severums, convicts and keyholes before). I work at a humane society and these fish were left outside our building in a small plastic tank...

    So Oscars are supposed to be these really aggressive fish? Mine gets bullied by the othercichlids in our 100 gal. He has quite a few nips in his fins, but he's very healthy. He's about 6-7 inches. But he never chases the other fish or anything. Is he just an exception to the rule? And he's a...
