This shark is a good shark to keep although it needs a very large aquarium. At full size this shark needs 58-68F water as it will only live 2 years in warm water (ie. 80F)

    This guy doesn't just need a good size aquarium = he needs at least a 400 gallon aquarium just for himself. It is a large investment and undertaking for a novice.

I have had a Flagfin Angelfish for about a year now in a 70 gallon FOWLR; no problems whatsoever. Took live foods to get him to eat and eventually got him to eat frozen and now eats all food types even pellets. Very friendly fish and is always out swimming in the open.

Hi, I live in Burnaby B.C. Canada and I find that the mandarin goby is bi-far more expencive than its counter part and its counter part is far more abundant than the mandarin. I am talking about the "Psychedelic Fish". I have also been told that these and Mandarin gobys are very very hard to keep. I have a 100 gallon tank with about 200 lbs of rock and I usualy do 20-40 gallon water change every 12 days and he love the fresh water,hes right in their when I just top off the water my tanks temp id at 80 degrees. I got him 5 months ago and he has more than doubled his size since I have had him. But what I need to know is,is that will a Mandarin and a Psychedlic live together and NOT fight when crossing each others paths?

I have a stingray and it's been fine and now it has stringing stuff coming off it. I didn't know if it was growing or just dying? Thanks for any info I can get.

    Hi Andrew, I hope this helps. I think the reason why he's eating your newly added chromis is because any new small fish you're putting in makes him think it's food. Or if not, he could be territorial. I think if the fish were there before the ray, it won't eat them.

I have a purple firefish that is so funny to watch! It spends a lot of time swimming in the powerhead current trying to catch particles of food that float by, or "bickering" with my yellowtail blue damsel. Nothing serious, just fun and games!

    If you have more than one in a 15G or less they may fight. And they don't stop until there is a victor.

He is very fast and cool. He unfortunately died while he was with many other fish :(

I have a breeding pair in my reef and has been laying eggs all year long, but just don't have the time or patience to try to raise them unfortunately.

    What you can try to do is sell them or donate them. Try to know the Aquarium or person before you donate them. Frys (Clown fish babies) are REALLY hard to keep. But, you should at least keep one or two. Because if the adults die you have two more that grow up fast!
