I have a pond (small) that initially occupied with different tropical fishes, but they always disappeared maybe because birds, or other.
A few month ago I decided to take a different approach and bought 1 plant (Anacharis)
so the fish could hide from predators, well it didn't work for the fish, so I moved the ones I got left with to my 20 gal tank, now I have so many Anacharis that I wish there was a way to use them and not kill them, Let me know if there is other use for the plant, thank you (Florida)

my betta keeps stalking my coreys , its worse when i feed all the fish in the tank i give the other fish flakes and the coreys wafers, he will also pinch there food [ last picture] i had one of my coreys for a few years along with the danios , tetras etc .. i bought my betta along with the other two catfish around 6 months ago, i dont think he actually attacks them but he will stalk them no matter where they are in the tank , is this something to be worried about and would he attack them at a later point , should i seperate them any advise would be great , there is some photos i have attatched to show his behaviour thank you

    Woah... nice looking betta! As far as aggression is concerned, Ive never seen a betta go after any other fish except female bettas. Id chalk it up to interesting behaviour and not worry about him actually harming other fish. Keep an eye out though!
  • Rebecca Gardner - 2014-07-26
    thank you david for your reply , i have had bettas in the past before this one he was lovely royal blue colour, he wasnt at all a bother this one though his oddly strange, he spends his whole time just stalking my catfish , well all i can hope is this is him just being curious, i have got an hospital tank anyway at present it houses my black skirt tetra, was not sure if the tetra would start nipping at the bettas tail or vice versa so thought best to remove him to seperate tank, anyway thankyou once again x

    Woah... best photo of all. Beautiful fish

My turtle, Tuck, has been with me for about nine years. I was forced to remove any out of water basking areas and rocks because he continuously ended up on his back. Somehow he managed to, at one point, flip himself upside down on a rock that was surrounded by water. Why or how is he doing this? (He seems perfectly happy and healthy in a completely aquatic environment.)

Would it be a good idea if I were to get a sixline wrasse with my two tomato clowns, African red starfish and snowflake eel? I've always wanted one and I also might add one or two Niger triggers to my tank. I have a 55gal. Please answer soon I'll be on next at about 11:00am tomorrow please answer before then. Thanks.

Our rescued Chion is the sweetest little guy. He's skiddish around strangers and barks as a protective measure. Learns super fast and is eager to please. High energy, loves walks and car rides.

I have a senior Chug rescued from a local Shelter. This baby started off very happy and very playful. After a week this poor baby has stopped being playful and sleeps constantly. She is not eating, and she continues to get sick not long after eating, but it is not food she is spitting up, it is bile. I have taken her to the emergency room and they said her blood tests show no problems. Please anyone, can you give advice to someone who knows nothing about caring for this little girl, she is so precious, and I fear I am losing her quickly.

    Possible food allergy. Will be a challenge but try starting with various forms of nothing but sweet potatoes for minimum of 10 days to see if any positive result. Resist temptation to add anything to make it more appealing!

    Pancreatitis...serious
  • KATHY - 2014-07-27
    Try asking or taking her to the shelter where you got her. I would think that they would be familiar with her health, eating habits, etc.. Its at least worth the phone call, right? Best of luck with your Chug ... Hope all works out alright!!!

    I know how you feel. When I first started getting cichlids I put a Dempsey in with some other community type fish. DOH! I guess I was being optimistic but of course it didn't work out. Now I only keep Dempseys singly or in breeding pairs. That first experience though was not pleasant, especially since the fish store guy kind told me how naive I was.

Hello I have 2 young veiltails (about 6 cm) in a 18 L nano tank, it has an air pump and filtering by gravity (with activated carbon). Can I care for those fishes in that tank? Thanks!

    Two of these fish should be fine in an 18 Liter Nano Tank. The general rule is for every inch of fish you should have 1 gallon of water. These guys usually only get to be a little over 2 inches when full grown and so that tank should be just large enough to accomodate their full grown size. I wouldn't add anymore fish though.
  • JustMe - 2014-07-26
    Two fish of this type need at least 151L as they can grow 6 inches each and are huge waste producers.

I have two large tanks and over the years I have bought nine botias that were sold as Botia Kubotai (polka dot botias). It turns out five are polka dots, three are histrionicas, and one is a botia I have never seen before. It is in-between the size of an polka dot and a yo-yo. Approximately, 4 ½ inches. It’s coloring is almost black with a pattern in a dark grey with one small yellow area. It snout is shorter like the polka dot, not as long as the yo-yos. Anybody have any ideas? I’ve searched everywhere and I can’t find one that looks like it.
