For sexing the fish, what it says in this profile is true. Also, a male's dorsal fin is noticabely larger than that of a female's. These means the male often tends to keep the fin semi erect.

I got a silver tip shark about a month ago and I have it in a 5 gal tank. The fish mostly just sits in one corner of the tank and doesn't do much. why? is it because he's stressed or lonely? and how often do I need to clean/replace water in the tank. new at this fish thing.

    It sounds like you fish is very unhappy, probably because the tank is way too small. If you check out the aquarium setup section for this fish, you'll get an idea of what to do to keep him not only healthy, but happy:)

    Make sure you have the right amount of salt in your tank. They are brackish fish

    Your tank is way too small,as the Silver Tip Shark-Catfish needs a 55-75 gallon minimum.

My red oranda is about 3 years old. It has developed a fleshy protrusion on its body near the base of the tail. It is flesh color about the size of a pecan nut. It has not had any effect on the orandas activity. Can anyone help me on what this is? Thanks

    It could be a variety of things.  More of a description would help.  Could be a water quality issue or maybe parasites?  Start with the simple thing first and test your water.

I have an adult male Electric Blue Jack Dempsey, I recently took in a rescue fish its a Kissing Guorami we had them together for about a week before we had to separate them due to my Kisser fish trying to kiss Mr. Jack her lips had bite marks and feeding time was not fair to the Kisser due to Jack not letting her get any food... So my question is what would be a good tank mate for the Kissing Guorami I don't like seeing her all alone! Any suggestions? There both in 40 gallon tanks

    The Kissing Gourami can get aggressive when it gets big. See the social behaviors section on this fish's page to get a good feel for companions. One thing you'll read is that keeping them with other fish that are aggressive brings out their own aggression, which is probably what happened when you tried to keep it with this type of cichlid. Most large cichlids are pretty territorial.

    The male has a concave trailing edge on his anal fin, the female's is straight. The male also has an extended filament on his anal fin which the female lacks.

    The Ropefish suggested tank size is 50 gallons, so you are really close. So I'm guessing it would probably be okay though the tank will be pretty heavily stocked. You may need to do more water changes to keep the water quality up. It is pretty peaceful fish, as are most of your others, but I'm not sure if the loach might get aggressive with it. That could be a concern.
  • Knife Fish Lover - 2014-11-19
    The puffers have been moved to a 10 gallon brackish and the loach is never aggressive.

    They are cool fish, they are one of the candidates we've been considering for a 125 gallon tank we have as well. You're in a good place, as Archerfish are bred in captivity in your country too.
  • kye turnbull - 2013-05-15
    It's good because I can catch my own fish from the wild, especially the ones that aren't in the aquarium trade! I wild caught my tandanus when it was about 5 cm long.
