Hi,

I heard of a fish called the ornate ctenopoma/orange bushfish/ansorgi and from the pictures I have seen it look like a large betta but it apperently isn't realated. I was wondering if anyone knows where I could by one of these because they aren't on ebay and I don't know any pet stores that sell them. I would really like to get one for christmas or my birthday so please help.

    The only place I know to get them 'ctenopoma/orange bushfish/ansorgi' commonly called the Orange Bushfish is in a tropical fish store.

I have a female opaline gourami with a female blue gourami. It was smaller than the blue one but more aggressive, so it was the under dog of the tank. Now, my opaline defeated my blue gourami and took most of the territory. They still fight daily but my tank is big and there are plenty of hiding spots. The funny thing is that it won't attack my cherries and doesn't attack back when nipped by my mollies. It just tries to swim away. It does go for any new fish for a couple days though. Its still an awesome fish!

    She just wants to be top dog and makes sure everyone knows it. Sounds fun.

Hi all, at the beginning I was having a red fighter which always seems so dull and stays at the bottom of the tank. So I bought one more betta (a blue one) and kept the two tanks adjacent to each other. After then, both the fighters rebel each other on the opposite faces of the glass wall, all the time without any rest. Will this continuous fight make the fighters so tired and lose massive body or any trouble to its health?

    In a way, yes. If you keep two bettas together it is bad enough but when you put both of their tanks near each other they can waste all of their energy and be too tired to eat and do other stuff as they most likely won't sleep because they will be staring each other down the whole night. What you can do is get a large tank (30 gallon+) and keep them together but you would need many other fish with them so they don't target each other (ex. guppy, platy, danios, etc.). Hope this helps.

    Hi betta joe. I believe what you need to do to breed them is get the king betta any female betta from a pet store and put the male betta in a medium size tank (5-20 gallons) before the female and hope for the best. Keep a close eye on them just in case. For the babies just put stuff only they can get into. Good Luck!

    Listen, I know that my question has nothing to do with bettas but I thought that since snakeheads could 'breath' air I thought labereth fish would be a good section to put my question in, sorry.

    Paradise fish, while they are not as aggressive as Bettas, they still have the aggression, and it is advisable not to place two males together in the same aquarium.

    You placed the bag with the water and fish inside the tank and let it sit for a couple of hours before releasing the fish. Right? Someimtes a change in temperature - but rare and wouldn't think this was it. Just a precautionary thing to do. My guess is that somehow the female was sick or ill or just a coincidence. There is really no way to know but I would check the tanks temperature, PH etc just to be sure. I am sorry. It seems strange though. I'd ask the fish store.

    Did you check the water? If the water is fine the move may have stressed her out. How long was she in the tank before she died?

    The simplest way to tell (that my pet store told me) is look at its dorsal fin. If it kinda ends in a point down his spine,it's a he, and if it ends more rounded,it's a she.
  • bill - 2011-09-26
    The males dorsal fin will reach and almost touch the tail fin, the females dorsal will be shooter and rounder, they will both change colors during breeding and the male will get extremely aggressive to any who enter his nesting area.
