Hi all I have a red devil that has been sitting on the bottom of my tank for the last few months. He comes up for food and comes over to have a look when I go up to the tank. Otherwise he just sits upside down on the bottom of the tank! Can anyone tell me what to do to fix this or is it to late for him?

    That is really strange! Because it's been going on for so long, and he is eating and active when he wants to be, makes me think there may be nothing physically wrong. But it's still really strange:)

Mollys are very cool fish. You can make your own combinations by breeding them. For example get a marbled molly and breed it with a Orange Balloon Molly and the outcome will be cool. Buy a couple and keep the male ratio to one male for two females because the male will chase females and somewhat exuast them.

We bought one to help clean the tank. The pet store guy said he would hide most of the time but this couldn't be farther from the truth, he is all over the place! I hope this is a sign that he loves his new home! He is leving with 5 Zebra Danio's, 1 Rainbow SHark, 2 Bala Sharks, 1 Cory Cat, and 1 Pleco. Love this guy he is so cool!

My daughter has an eel, when is a good time to feed them since they hide all day? I haven not seen he/she eat yet. We were told to feed it either blood worms or flake food. Have been feeding it flake food because that is what the other fish eat.

    I would also try some brine shrimp. Doubt they will thrive or even eat flake.
  • Jeremy Roche - 2012-03-25
    Early morning before lights go on or at night. It will learn to eat around your schedule eventually.

    Drop bloodworms wherever it hides at dusk. These Eels won't accept flakes I have had spiny eels and never once have they accepted anything but bloodworms and tubifex worms.

Why are my puffer fish floating on the water surface? They are not dead, they've been acting like this ever since I removed the bubbles. Please help me.

    You removed the bubblers? Why? It might be that they are not receiving enough oxygen through their water. In addition to that, it could be any number of things. How large is your tank and how long have you had the puffers? They may have not acclimated to the tank yet or if the aquarium has not cycled enough it may be too unstable to help fish thrive. Also, puffers do somewhat better in brackish water as adults, so you may consider adding salt depending on their age.

I just bought a silver tipped shark at petco yesterday and now im really worried because I was told that they get about twenty four inches and that they will eat any fish thats smaller then him. I really love this shark but I dont want him to eat all my fish in the tank. He;s only about an inch or two now but should I return him??? I have swordtails, platties, mollies, yo-yo loach, rainbow shark, and tetras. I am doomed right? This fish will eat all my fish when it gets bigger right??? Please help me before it's too late for me to return the shark. Thanks Dave

    My Silver Tip Does Fine With The Other Tank Mates In My 29 Gal. They Include Swordtails, Platties (3 Really Small Ones), Indian Ghost Fish (With Are Like Tetras) Danios, And Also Ive Had A Few Little Guppies In There. They Did Fine. And My Silver Tip Is About 5 Inches. =) For Everyone Els eI Havent Had Any Killings Yet So I Think They Would Do Fine With Smaller Fish. He Also Has A Few Other Same Size Fish He Swims With.
  • Jeremy Roche - 2013-05-25
    The biggest issue you may have is tank sive.  They can out grow the tank depending on size.  They are not very aggressive fish and do well most of the time with smaller fish.

    I have 2silver tip and 4 tiger barb went missing my sharks r only 3 inches
  • Toni - 2013-08-20
    Do you know what might cause my silver tipped shark to swim using only his tail fin? He won't use any of his other fins. I'm afraid he might eventually die. :-(

Hi I have a 40g with a edjd that I bought in April of This year. He/she is with two pictus catfish, rainbow shark, and a male and female brislenose Pleco. I was wondering what would make a good tankmate?

    Try this Fish Finder application. You can enter in all your tank parameters, and it will give you suggestions on fish! It is pretty neat.
