Does anyone think it would be a good idea to add an Oman to my 55gal tank that consists of two tomato clowns, a snowflake eel, and an African red starfish? If not what clown fish, and if no clown fish what fish?

    Tomoato clowns don't do well with other types of clownfish because of being territorial and aggressive, so I would recommend against adding an Oman.

I have a 300 gal cichlid tank. jeweled, electric yellow, electric blue, calico, convict, and fire mouth.. I only have 1 actual pair of fish which are the jeweled, but my electric is on her 2nd set of babies :o) Can an electric yellow cross breed? I'm really not sure what it could be breeding with in there, because as I said, one of each kind of fish. I really don't have a great knowledge of fish. I kind of stepped into owning them by accident, but I must be doing something right, I have only live plants, and lots of rocks for hiding, and apparently a breeding pair, Can someone help me? If you know if they can cross breed, can you let me know. The babies are all different colors. All are very similar to their mother, ( all a base color of a creamy yellow) but some are dark, some are striped, others just have the black fins. Thanks so much...

    Hi yes the yellow can cross breed with many other mbuna cichlids but if I had to guess I would say it is breeding with the electric blue.

    I do believe they can cross breed. I have a male and female yellow lab, and three snow whites, two females one male, that are breeding, one batch is all yellow, so I know the yellows breeding. The albinos fry are pale yellow with blueish fins and black tip fins like the yellow labs, very cool looking. My big male yellow lab just started turning grey on the lower half of his face, looking sick in a way but acting and eating healthy, he was so sharp looking, flawless all around. Now this started about three weeks ago after my heater failed and brought the temp over 110, surprised all my fish survived other than the three yellow peacocks... Could this colour change in the male lab be from that, him almost dying?

although beautiful and hardy...My suggestion for stocking levels is 1 fish per gallon of water. Also, these fish have the most amusing habit of rummaging around in the substrate, by working gravel in and out of their mouths searching for anything edible.These are hardy fish which can tolerate a lot, but please dont use that as an excuse to mistreat them.

    1 gallon per fish is not sufficient it must be at least 15 gallons per fish.

    They get pretty big though so make sure that you have a big enough tank and know what you're doing with it.

So I planted some Water Onion bulbs a couple of days ago and on some of the bulbs there is some white cloudy stuff starting to appear and I wasn't sure exactly what that was? Should I remove the bulbs? Is this dangerous to my fish? Any information would be helpful and thank you in advance!

    The white cloudy stuff is probably mold?

Is it normal for a pleco to stay on its back for 5 - 6 hrs? I thought it was dying, then all of a sudden it went nuts (swimming, jumping, diving).. now it follows me when I pass the tank..

    That doesn't sound exactly typical, but it sounds like he is doing fine now. Just keep an eye on him to make sure you don't see any other signs of illness. Also do the recommended water changes (about a fifth of the tank once a month) and check the water quality and temperature.
