We have 29 gal tank. We have two blue ones. One of them has started just laying on the bottom of the tank, and it's color has darkened. It doesn't seem to be guarding anything. Just sitting on the bottom. Any ideas as to why?

    Not sure if this is the same problem, but I had 2 small goldfish and a pleco in my 30 gallon. I got some new goldfish from Petland (TERRIBLE DECISION) and they all got sick. They started out sitting at the bottom of the tank with the pleco, so we thought they were copying him and was kind of cute, but then they started dying and the disease became more obvious. They all got ich, velvet, AND fungus from the Petland fish. Now all that's left is the pleco. Long story short, he may be sick with one of these diseases. And NEVER buy anything live from Petland! Hope this helps.

    Sometimes things die and just not your fault. Is he in a bowl? It would probably be better if you put him in a tank with a filtratin system and he had more oxygen in the water and more room to swim around. A bowl looks neat but not really great enviorment for a fish. The bowl is primarily for decoration.

Hello, I live in Cambodia and have a betta. As you can imagine, no pet store, no source of decent food for him. He won't eat pellets. I have been zapping mosquitoes and dissecting horse flies (he won't eat regular flies) for a month now. He likes mosquito larvae when I can find them. However, this is very time consuming. Any suggestions or recommendation as to an alternative food source or how many mosquitoes he needs per day, would be appreciated. I don't relish the thought of breeding mosquitoes on purpose. What about baby guppies?

    Hi JustMe,
    Baby guppies would definitely work, however guppies grow up to be very beautiful, so if you can get your hands on some feeder fish (like White Cloud Minnows) they would be the better option. But otherwise baby guppies would work.

I have only one.. :P I think he's silly. He loved to play around with my other goldfishes, but now they passed away. -___- After they did, he got kinda lonely. He just stopped being all hyper and hid in the cave. I have gotten a Rainbow Shark now, and my Gourami seems more happy and social and they swim side by side to each other.. But I was wondering if that's gonna be safe in the future as my shark grows..?

    Most likely, your gourami and rainbow should be fine together. Rainbow sharks are generally bottom dwellers and can get aggressive towards other bottom dwellers (i.e. other rainbow sharks), but should not have too much of a problem with other community fish, including gourami's. If you are concerned, then over time I would just keep an eye on them and make sure fins are not getting nipped and torn and that no fights break out.

I have what I believe to be a pregnant Golden Gourami and I am unsure what to do with her. Do I just leave her? I don't really want to go through expense by buying another tank. Can anybody advise on what I need to do or what will happen if I just leave her be? Thanks.

The shelf life of GIANT GOURAMI differs from condition to condition if provided with neat & clean water & a good diet twice a day it can live up to years & viceversa

Believe it or not, I have a blue gourami in a tank with all ciclids. And the funny thing is he USED to bully my flowerhorn when he was smaller, which now the tide has turned and he should have been nice to him. Because now my older and bigger flowehorn gives this guy hell. He swims around for his life, but he doesn't harm him, just likes to show him who's boss now!

I had a kissing gourami for about two months, however the day that I bought the fish, it stopped kissing! I contacted the people at the local fish store that I received the fish from and they said that kissing gouramis kissing, is actually a bad thing! I do not know what to believe, but I do not believe them. This fish is now dead, and I do not know how it died. But while I had it the only problem I encountered was that it ate my plants. It was once standing 15 inches, but only standing 7 inches when i removed the fish.

    The plant poisoned the fish. Remove the plants.

    The reason the LFS said it is a bad thing is because it is a sign of aggression. The fish that are 'kissing' are trying to dominate one another either for territorial or breeding rights. In an uncomfortable or unhealthy environment, they are less likely to 'kiss'. It is unlikely that the plants killed the fish, plants will usually help increase their comfort level.
