Our fish is now missing his tail fin. It would appear that one of the other fish in the tank has nibbled it away. Can he regrow it? I have temporarily removed him from the tank.

I have just bought 2 kissing gouramis and I don't know if they are male or female. How do I figure it out?

Also will they eat each other?

In last 4 years till now I've been breeding the famous Siamese fighting fishes
I've thinking if the fry are hatched and guarded by the male and then after 5 days the male is moved to another places. The question is what kind of foods that increase in fish grows?
Besides that I've also have 3 big Siamese fighting fishes, humugousaur is the first male siamese fighting fish, he've been my pet for 4 years, big chill is the yellowish betta's, as the second, and the last, is horus a red black colored betta he is the most aggressive pet that I've ever had.

I got two of these a week ago, and they are so full of beauty and personality. I had a laser pointer and I was using it to play with my cat, but when I shined it by the tank one of the paradise fish chased it! Now I play with him using it too!

I've had my Betta for two years now, but from what I know, they are usually sold at one year or older, so I'm assuming my male Betta is three. He has long fins on top and on the bottom of his body that are a sort of metallic purple streaked with a kind of magenta. He has small purple fins on the sides and his scales are light pink with a few purple ones. His name is Aragon, because of my favorite book, Eragon. He has lived longer than I thought he would, outlasting my brother's fish who lived for six months after he received his blue Betta. I've just kept him in small tank that holds just about one or two gallons of water I think. I feed him three pellets a day, and he still lives! He doesn't require much care, other than cleaning his tank once every two weeks. He is good for beginners, him being my first fish.

I have just inherited 2 adult kissing gouramis and they were placed in water not treated. I went to the pet store and the sales person said I needed 30 gold fish to treat the tank. The tank is now cloudy and several of the gold fish have died and my gouramis are swimming at the bottom and do not seem to be eating. I am not happy and would like to have the situation fixed asap. Please help me.

    Im not sure if you mean a whole new tank setup by water not treated. Generally goldfish make alot of wastes. If you have goldfish I was told they should be alone and never use them for cycling a new tank. They also don't need the tank temp as warm as the Gouramis do. How big is this tank and is it a brand new set up? If I were you i'd take the goldfish back to the fish store. Read about changing the water in your tank. I'd leave the gouramis in that tank alone. Do a partial water change. Feed the fish sparingly. Also get a Freshwater test kit and test your tank. My guess is it is a new tank and its going through cycling. There is not much you can do when it is cycling but feeding the fish sparingly, doing partial water changes. When you do the water changes try not to disturb the rocks at the bottom of the tank. That is where all the bacterial grows that the tank needs to function properly. Just skim over the rocks but don't move them about. Also the filter pad shouldn't be changed for a long time. IF you need you can rinse the filter pad in the water that you remove from the tank but that also hold the beneficial bacteria for the tank. Hope this helps you in some ways. Try a different fish store..seems you were given some wrong info. Or call a local pet smart or petco for some help over the phone.

    You should NOT have 30 goldfish unless you have a huge pond or something. That will make the pH drop like crazy; hence all the dying fish.

    From what I understand Goldfish are not good to have with other fish. Gold fish are very dirty and can poison other fish.

    I'd take the goldfish out, clean the tank, and if the water needs to be treated get some water treater (stuff you pour in the water).

Yesterday (new years day 2009)I bought a rainbow shark, 2 tetra serpae and a gourami opaline. I already had a lonely guppy so I thought I would buy some. I put them all in a 10 gallon tank with plants and a ship. My rainbow shark loves the pirate ship, all he does is going in to the left side of it then comes out the other side. Anyways the petco people said, "these fish won't hurt your guppy." My guppy was a little scared at first then adventured down in to the bottom to the ship. not the smartist idea for him because I feed them. Then I saw he wasn't out, so I turned the light off. Then went to bed for 2 minutes, got up and looked at my guppy, because he was out. His whole back fin was all bit up and now this morning he is dead. I want to know what fish bit his tail. Is it the gourami fish?

    aww poor thing lol, most likely the gourami or the shark, both of these can be quite aggresive, especially for a tiny lone guppy,try a female pearl gourami or personally i think honey gouramis are best. I have also leant the hard way i used to just go by what they say at the pet shop, but trust me dont. they really have no idea what they are talking about, half the fish that they say are community fish are not. the best thing to do is research what fish you are going to get before you get them, i know it sounds long to do, but just go to the shop, note down a few fish that you like, come back and research them and find out the friendliest ones, then go buy them. personally id use a 20 gallon for a gourami of that size, most people dont give a shit about cheap little fish, but i do lol,anyway sorry this has been so long lol but hope it helped!

    My opaline did the same thing to my female betta. Then I moved my male in since she needed to be in the other tank, which the male was in, he bit him up too. The female died a couple of days after and so did my male. The opaline doesn't bother the false Siamese algae eater, zebra danio, or my harlequin rasbora. Whoever reads that these fish are compatible with betta fish should not take their chances. It is most likely the gourami in your case since they can be aggressive to colorful and/or long-finned fish such as guppies.
