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.

    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.

    The puffers have been moved to a 10 gallon brackish and the loach is never aggressive.

will my pangasis catfish be fine with Oscars?

    I wouldn't suggest it, these fish all get big. Oscars will try to chow on most other fish, even other oscars unless the tank is huge (200+ gallons), and pangasius are also very skittish fish.

About the breeding. This happened completely by accident. I have a albino bristlenose longfined pleco and an albino pleco and they just had babies. There are about 18 of them and they are about the size of half a pea. They are pinkish orange and I can already see the fins. I find this to be quite the experience since they are in a 35 gallon tank with a variety of chilids.

SURPRISE, SURPRISE ! I got up this morning to find baby Pleco's in my 55 gal. tank. I did not know they would reproduce in captivity, as all I've read says they don't ! So far I have counted at least 10 babies. I'm so excited; I sure hope they survive. I have guppies, swords,catfish, and 3 Pleco's in the tank. My Pleco's are quite young/small, only about 2 1/2 inches long. Just had to share my experience.
