Hi I have pair of kissing fish I don't know how should I care for them? They kiss each other for very rare and sit calm for the whole time is all normal with them? I don't want them to die.

Hi I have two red caps, they were fine when I put them in the tank but now they are floating in the corner of the tank. They are still eating and very responsive if you switch the light on. I'm treating them for tail rot at the moment but they don't seem to be getting better. Anybody help me what I can do please?

I have 3 very large redtails in a 12ft by 3ft tank they are very active and they are eating very well. I have just noticed recently that on two of them their gill plates seem two be curling, back on them selves. I've tested the water and the water is spot on. I don't want to lose them, I've had them a long time. Has anybody had this problem or does anybody know what could be wrong with them, or know anybody for some advice? thanks to anybody who can help me. carl

    I've had the same issue with mine. Only one gill seems to be curling, or looks inverted just at the top. It's not affecting the whole gill. Did yours improve? I've been looking for answers and had no luck so far. My fish is not distressed from what I can tell and my water quality is great.

So I set up a tank in my sons room, because we have a large community tank in our living room and a Mbuna Setup in mine and my wife's bedroom. Recently our large parrot fish which my son adored passed away and he didn't take it well. He always adored Red Devils, especially this one at our LFS that someone dropped off when she got too large. Of all fish he could of picked he went for a 9' female Red Devil. I was a bit skeptical @ first due to their reputation of being killing machines but she is a sweetheart and has a great personality towards my son, he even named her 'Red'. He understands Red can only live in solitary but he gives her a lot of attention and I can see them bonding.. I was kinda astonished that My son wanted the fish that someone basically threw out because she got too big and left her to waste away instead of picking out a kiddie fish @ 7 years old.

We have a Jack Dempsey Electric Blue fish who is about 5 years old. He stopped eating over a month ago! And no matter what we do, he won't eat. He must be surviving on algae or some type of protozoa alone. We treated him for Ich and he appears to have 'hole in the head' but he is holding on and we really want to save his life. He has been 'ill' for a long time. We can't get any of our local petshops to take him and heal him. Apparently we don't know how to handle this one.



Does anyone in the New York City area want to take him and see what you can do? You can keep him. We want to make him well and save his life. He obviously has a strong life force because he is still alive after much stress from no eating, medication, etc.



Please respond if you can help. Thanks so much.

Hi I bought a Shubunkin & a Comet goldfish last week for my daughter, they both have settled in well but in the last few days the Shubunkin keeps hiding behind the bush we bought along with the tank & it will only come out when I move the bush away. The Commet goldfish is so active it never stops swimming. I'm getting a little concerned for the Shubunkin please can some one help? Don't know if anything is wrong with it or should I just remove the bush? Regards Mrs Biggar from Wigan

    Place it in the other tank...don't let it be scared and bullied by others...do it soon...put in aquarium salt depending on the size of the tank...if it is continuously bullied, not a good idea...

    Place it into other tank...let it be alone...put some aquarium salt depending on the size of an aquarium...example 1 spoon to 28litres of water...add in vitamin complex...do it soon as possible...
