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.

    Go to a pet DR. he may help.

    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!

It is now currently illegal to purchase, sell, or keep a nurse shark in captivity without a license issued from the federal government. Which means any nurse shark in captivity outside an endorsed aquarium or zoo is illegal.

Oh dear, just bought a 4 stripe damsel. Pet shop said it would be ok with other fish. I have not seen any aggresion as yet, but will keep a close eye on it and see how things develop. All comments on this fish are conflicting.

I have four of these in a 90 gallon tank and they can be tough to acclimate for sure. I would highly suggest having every single possible food type on hand before they arrive. Start with freeze dried mysis, brine, bloodworm, whatever else soaked in Selcon or the like. If they don't take this move to frozen mysis, brine, bloodworm, or whatever else you can think of. Use the freeze dried first since you can reconstitute it with the Selcon and get more nutrients to your fish, this is much harder with frozen food. The best way that I have found to get these guys to take pellet or flake is to mix the flake or pellet with whatever else they are taking first. After you have done this for a week or two space out your feedings a little bit. Don't starve them but make them hungry and feed only the flake for a day or two. Don't feed the flake too long by itself if they are not eating. Patience is the key with these fish, don't push them too hard and don't underestimate them. I had one stay under the sand for 3.5 weeks before she finally came out during daylight hours.
