Hi guys, I have 1 Payara Armatus about 5 inches & it looks fine in my tank. But I am just worried about his fangs, there is only one left. I do not know how that happened. My question is, will his fangs will grow back or what?

    They will drop their teeth as they grow, but it will grow back quickly so no worries.

I have 5 hi fin black Tetra's in a 20 gallon long tank.  They have used this tank as their home for almost a year now.  I am adding some albino cory Catfish and a snail today.  I hope they will get along with one another.

Hi, the 150 gallon is still on hold for me and now I only have 2 darters left no feeders and 4 mosquito fish. I bought a TRUE freshwater snowflake moray eel, which explains where the fish went, and I was wondering if it could go in the same tank as the pacu. Also, I have dicided not to include the smaller fish and I have 2 bluegill to take there place, can I do this without too many problems?P.S., yes it is a TRUE freshwater moray eel.

    The eel and the Pacu should get along nicely, especially in 150 gallon tank.

    The only freshwater morray needs brackish when older.

I bought 4 glow lights for my 7 gallon tank yesterday and they are so happy. I noticed two of them doing a mating dance for a little bit but there were no signes of eggs. it was wierd. I love feeding them because they dart through the water to get the food and it is so cute. I have one other guppy in the tank and she seems ok with them. she tried to nip them at first but has really calmed down now and has accepted them. Glo light tetra's are by far the best fish i ever got

We get neons by the dozens and we have to do it from time to time because they do not last as long as they should. Now I realize if we got the $4/each ones it would be more responsible, but the 50 cent/each ones allow quantities of 75 at a time. They do look so wonderful in large schools though. They share their 90 gallon heavily planted and filtered auto-c02 controlled tank with 9 Clown Loaches, couple pearl gouramis, dozen rummynose, handful of glasscats, handful of bleedingheart tetras, couple catfish and a handful of cories. Wish I could afford 75 of the $4/each ones! They are stunning.

    Your tank is overstocked.

I'm doing a fish project for school and I bought 3 white tetras. I feed them "tropical fish flakes" and have lots of plants in the tank. They seem to love it!

I have three of these that I bought because they were labled as black neons in the store and I wanted to give my existing black neons some school mates. When I got them, I thought they just had awful colours because they were juveniles. Then they grew into these beautiful fish that I had real trouble identifying until I found this site. A beautiful, peaceful fish with a voracious appetite for frozen brine shrimp. I just wish I had one good school of one certain type of tetra, instead two groups of three lonely tetras. How incompetent to completely mislabel a fish in a shop! How incompetent of me to buy them!

Lovely. It was ironic that I did not have any interest in any Tetras before. I thought small fishes were unattractive and dies within weeks. However, I was wrong. They proved hardy and impressed me tremendously with their flashy colors. I have twelve of them, and it is interesting to see their colors flashing again after the lights were turned on after total darkness. They almost appeared colorless. I noticed they do eat a lot. Remember not to overfeed. Just because they are tiny does not mean you have to feed exactly the way you do for bigger fishes! DO NOT add in other bigger sized fishes (Plecos, etc) as Neon Tetras sleeps and rests at the bottom and bigger fishes will simply vacuum them in.
