I have a new set up and thinking of getting a pair of fire mouths. I would like a community tank but I am unsure what type of fish I could put with these. Could your offer me any suggestions please?

    Use the fish finder tool to see what would be compatible and adequate for your tank. Just go to the index at the top of the page (just right of the picture) and click on 'Enter a Freshwater Aquarium'. After you fill in the info, you will be able to select compatible fish.

My female blood parrot is hiding under the filter and I'm starting to worry about her, she laid eggs 5 days ago and has been digging holes everywere and going around checking on the holes and then spitting eggs into the holes, only a few eggs turned white, the rest were tanned colour but didn't notice the black dot on them, her and the male ate the bad looking eggs last night and now she won't come out from under the filter, she's not stuck, I'm to scared to go into the tank and chase her out in case she stresses out and I get bitten and fish slapped. Help?

    Your female sounds fine, but it always amazes me, the interesting behaviors that animals display when they are in breeding mode. I wouldn't worry though, just let nature take its course (the female is doing what she deems necessary). And yeah... maybe keep your hands out of the aquarium unless you need to remove the eggs or do other maintenance. That will help reduce any additional stress on her.

My Red Devil is about 5 to 6 months old and is about 6 inches. Ever since I moved him into a 10 gallon tank by himself he's been very inactive. The reason why I moved him is because when he was kept with my other fish (Albino Tiger Oscar) he was constantly picking on the Oscar even though they are about the same size. He was very active back then. Now, sometimes he eats and sometimes he doesn't. He usually just hides under the filter. What can I do to help him be active again?

    He needs to be in a bigger tank, but the first thing I would make sure that the water is ok. Ammonia, nitrates, make sure these are in balance but he really needs to be in a 55 gallon aquarium.

    I agree with the previous post about a bigger tank and checking the water. Have you tried cat fish in the tank with him as a companion? Or feeder fish? They will like to hunt. He may have lost his will like a caged lion.

    Well that is exciting! We got our Altum from a wholesaler, gosh back in the late 90's, and it was very hardy. It had it's own tank initially, but didn't need any medication as it acclimated well. We then moved it into a fairly large community tank and it continued to do just awesome.

    A silver arowana would be a good tankmate.

This pretty fish has grown immensely since we first got it, about 8 years ago, and it has developed much more red, especially on its head!

    Wow, very cool! Ours is about 10 years old now, and has also gotten more red, especially on the head too.
