All i got to say is there's more to 'em than meets the eye! this fish turned out to be very curious and energetic. Unlike other butterflyfish we've had, it ate heartily and aggressively with our clown and damsels and didn't swim away when I get up close to the glass. He's not as pretty as other butterflyfish, but this fish is a joy to own. Can I send in my own pictures fo this fish? I got a cute one!

It's cruel to keep a Yellow tang in a system less than a 1000 liters.

    Especially for their long term environment! Juveniles can be kept in a smaller tank, but eventually they will need adequate space.

    Mixing species of clownfish is not suggested. Clownfish are extremely competitive and aggressive towards other species of clowns, and some even with their own species. The Ocellaris Clownfish is the most peaceful and you can keep several of this species together. Some of the other clown fish can be keep in pairs, like the Tomato Clownfish and the Clark's Clownfish, but others like the Maroon Clown will do best kept singly.

    Well really you can put as much as you want just keep some distance from each other

    Dont listen to the above people that talk about clownfish needing to be kept several females to one male. That is impossible considering clownfish biology. The largest specimen will always be a female and all others will be males. The largest male will be the breeding partner, until the female dies, then he morps into a female and the chain continues...

I work as a project manager in ornamental fish Pudong Mount Sinai in Egypt. We would like to introduce the idea of farming ornamental fish to salt water, such as butterflies, as well as angels and the question is: Are there countries that have succeeded in these new ideas? Please provide me with the sites electronically. Were they successfully cultivated was it economically profitable, and what is the length of time required by these fish before the sale? Thank you for your cooperation with me.

Hello, I just got my Emperor angelfish, I did the complete acclimatation process, but after a few hours, it is breathing very fast and hiding. My parameters are fine. It is an adult around 5 or 6 inches. What can I do? I read that more than 80 gill per minute its a red flag!

    Hmmm. If you are sure your parameters are fine then maybe your fish simply is used to different water conditions. It may be that he simply needs some time to acclimate to your tank. I would give it some time. Watch for other physical symptoms to determine if he is sick. Also make sure he is eating and swimming normally.
  • Jeremy Roche - 2013-03-06
    What else is in the tank?  Maybve something in there causing stress?  Any way to test the water that it came from to seem if it is all the same or close?  temp change?  When you do you acclimation do you use the drip method?

Our Flame Angel was not aggressive, but a very nosy fish, it checked out every aspect of the tank at least 1000 times! This is a note for anyone going to buy a flame angel, they are not the brightest fish ours got up in a big plastic wrecked ship and apparently couldn't get out. It was found dead in there, the water was checked and in perfect condition and the other fish were all fine. The angel was doing great one minute and then found dead in the ship. We think it might have gotten up in the ship and couldn't find it's way out and stressed too bad. I would not recommend any decorations in a tank with one of these except natural elements. We have since removed the ship and no other problems have occured with our fish since.

Hello, I am a professional aquarist at a large public aquarium. These rays usually get too big and need more space than a typical home aquarium can provide. They also tend to do well in the beginning of there stay in home aquariums but usually die an untimely death. They will breed in capitivity if they have enough space and we supply local wholesalers and other public aquariums with the T. lymma that breed here.

There are ways to take pressure off the animals that are popular in the aquarium trade. Only buy animals that are hardy and will have enough space in your aquarium. Just because a fish store is selling it doesnt mean it is a good choice for anyones aquarium. DO YOUR HOMEWORK and be a conscientious aquarium hobbyist.
