I have a huge problem... here is some background: I have been breeding Kribensis for a long time but today I have noticed that one of my batches male that is 8 months has a black and red face on 1-side! does anyone no what it is or should I get rid of it before it infects the other fish?

    Off the top of my head I don't know what the heck it is. But... I would isolate the fish (quarantine/hospital tank) until I resolve what is going on with this fish. That way you will be avoiding a condition that could affect other tank inhabitants. Better to be safe than sorry:)

    That happened to my oto. Died after 5 months.

My male yellow lab has been chasing the female lab and has stressed her. I've learned now I need more females to share the stress. I have her in a hospital net. What else can I do to stop her from dying...thanks ..scott

    How big is your fish tank? Best to have 3 or more females to 1 male yellow lab.
  • Wendy Dawn - 2014-03-30
    I recently had my 4 lb oscar die in my tank. I had 2 electric yellow females and one male, as well as a Jack Dempsey cichlid and a pleco. The one female is blind as a bat and now my male is also chasing the other female to her death. She's looking like she has fin rot but I assume it's the male ripping her to shreds. These fish are at their full grown size and if I introduce more females to the mix they will be too small to withstand the rest of the fish! Have you found any other solution Scott?

My Bubble Eye fish, Bub, is kind of odd. He hates being in our 10G tank, and prefers our fish bowl which is like 1G-1.5G. He is full of personality, and I'm pretty sure he recognizes me when I come to feed him, or just sit and watch him. The thing is, I've read many times that they like to be towards the bottom/floor, which Bub does on occasion, but he's more fond of chilling at the top. He's healthy, and very playful, so I'm not sure if I should be concerned or not. He's been doing this pretty much since we got him, back in Dec. 2013. Any thoughts?

I have three lionheads, one black, one orange, one gold and black. Also a black moor and a calico. They are all adorable. I am concerned for my big orange, as her head scales are growing down over the top of her eyes and she will soon be almost blind. Can the scales be cut back without hurting her? Does anyone know if there is anything I can do for her? She's my favorite!

    I don't know if they can be 'cut back', that sounds a little intrusive to me. It may just be her genetic makeup. These fish are breed for a number of things, with a large cap being one of them. I hope she will be alright, but I don't know that you can physically alter this. Perhaps another reader can give you a better idea.

    I currently have two lionheads in a 28 gallon tank. They are both about 2 inches. I'd like to add one more but I am concerned about stunting them. They are so adorable, just like all the others say.

I have an Osphronemus Gourami which is now 37 years old. Has anyone got one older? He lives on his own as he has tended to eat other fish in the past that have been put in his tank. He is playful, recognizes different people, eats vegetables, fruit, worms etc. but loves chocolate cereals, walnuts and cooked egg yolks.

    That's a really old gourami! I like the variety of food you give him :)
  • sheila - 2014-03-27
    Hi Jen I have an albino giant gourami. I got it like 5 years ago and it has gotten so big, it is now 19 inches OMG. It is very playful but aggressive at times. I give it pellets and sometimes a snack like jam and veggies. I have it in a 55 gallon tank, will it survive or can I buy a pond because another fish tank I can't afford, but I want to keep my pet.

I got a Midas cichlid about 6 months after I started my 75g tank. It was the smallest fish I had by far, now it's full grown and definitely the Alpha fish in the tank, he even chases around my 15 in Pacu. It almost killed my green terror, keep a close eye on your tank with this fish. Great fish.

My Ryukin is about 1/2 now. And just rating today he can't keep swimming or up in the tank. He tries to stay level but he sinks to the bottom and lays upside down. Can someone help me with what's wrong with him? ): Please and thank you!

    Swim bladder is a common problem with the ryukin goldfish. Jungle used to make a pond fungus eliminator that was great for this issue. Unfortunately, Jungle products discontinued this product (which came with alot of upset from breeders and hobbyists). frozen peas that have been thawed and fed to the goldfish seems to help some.
  • Kathryn - 2013-09-15
    Try feeding him shelled green peas. Works best if you thaw frozen ones. Do this for at least one day, or until he starts swimming right side up.

    I own 2, a calico which is over 6 inches, the other a red about 4 inches. I always notice that the calico always starts acting strange and sluggish when the filters need a good rinse. After I clean the filters it's back to normal. The other day I thought I was losing him, he was just staying towards the bottom and not swimming straight. The other fish was getting underneath him and holding him up because he could not swim right or stay up. I quickly cleaned another tank that I have and got it ready for him. I put both in there not wanting to separate them. He has been fine ever since. I think the water he was in was the culprit. It looked clean in the tank but wasn't. I was so scared to lose him, I've had them for about a year now. The smaller one never has these problems. Now I am making sure the water is kept really clean. Hope my experience helps you. It's worth a try.
