I have four Red Flame in my 55 gallon and they are always foraging on the Amazon swords. Very soothing to watch. They are also one of the first to the front for feeding time. They are housed with various Tetras, Danios, Barbs and Platies. Hardly never see them interact with each other. Each just busy picking away on the plant.

when i got my fish from walmart his back fin (the tip) was clear and kind of grey/black tipped. Since i have gotten him he has been acting quite healthy, but when will the color come back?

    I take it fin has lost its color? Maybe it is just changing as he grows older?

    What about if i bump it to 300g and 2 red bellied pacu.
  • Clarice Brough - 2012-12-09
    You should be able to, especially if they are raised together. The Red Belly Pacu can reach up to 30 inches (75 cm), but usually only obtains a length of about 12 inches (30 cm) in the aquarium. They are both large fish, but both are usually compatible with a similar sized tankmate. There are exceptions, sometimes the Giant Red Tail Gourami will get mean, but that's something you'd have to wait and see on as they grow.

Hi I get the feeling you all know what you are talking about. I have two male Bettas both in their own tanks. Can I keep females with them as everyone I talk to tells me I can't keep them together?! I know you can't keep two males together because they will fight. But I thought you could keep 1 male and up to 2 females together. Very confused. Any advice?

    You can keep the betta female with the male as long as you take her out after they breed or the male will kill her. And also only put her in if the male made a nest of bibbles on top of the water.

    A male and a female can only be together if you are breeding them, or have a big tank that is heavily planted. You can keep females together with the right size tank, and also you need to do research before doing this.

    Will actually be the opposite.  The goldfish will go after the betta.  Betta are peaceful except to other male bettas.  Goldfish release too much ammonia unless you have an incredible filter.

    With bigger guppies a betta would do fine.  The betta will eat any fry but the guppies would do the same.

I recently purchased a beautiful red betta from walmart. It was in pretty good condition too, nothing but a mild case of fin rot. But for some reason it won't eat anything but blood worms. So I've heard you shouldn't give blood worms to your betta alot because of the amount of protein, but at this point I have to becuase he won't eat the pellets or flakes. Does anyone know what I should do?

    Try adding some flake with a little blood worms or even brine shrimp.

Is it ok to use a blue light with kissing fish.

    It is fine to use.  Using different spectrum lights is best depending on light set up.

    P.S. I just got him. He is a bright red, with a flowing tale. He seems very active. I named him Jamarcus

    These fish do appreciate a well filtered and heated tank.  Many people keep them in the small bowls which is not the best situation for the betta.

I just brought a red and blue male... but my blue one is still at the pet shop.. just waiting for another tank.  I also am gonna get a female and see if I can breed them..:-) They are so beautiful. I have my red fighter (ninjah) in a tank with 2 gold fishes and he try and fights with them. I would put him in another tank alone but when they are alone they look bored and don't move. Thats why I've let him in there....
