I've had a shark egg for 6 weeks and it did not hatch yet. I wonder if it is going to hatch.

Hey, I got a bamboo shark and today when I did a water change it started acting strange swimming in loops and I have to sit by the tank because it lands on its back. I'm hoping it's just something that will go away cus Bruce was just fine till I did the water change.

    Usually something like that is because of stress or the conditions of the tank. Check the water, temperature PH etc and make sure all is OK. Attached is Animal World Article which summarizes various diseases but also behavior things. Scroll down and look up symptoms and recommended treatment is there. OK?

    Well sad to say it died and my blue tang died and a camel shrimp died as well it was because I got a fish that was ill and had tb and fin rott and ich and I went by the instructions on the bottle and on the second day of treatment is when all hell broke out it was that nox ich treatment but my cc seastar, clown fish, damsel, snowflake eel, big camel shrimp, hermit crabs, sally light foot, all seem to be doing well. I'm just glad I didn't lose all my fish. P.s. if you get a fish that has a sunk in stomach and won't compete for food get it out it has tb which can wipe out an aquarium in days.

I currently have a baby bamboo shark. I haven't had it for much time, but this I know, they have an excellent sense of smell. I mean as soon as I drop the food in the tank, he knows. But I am trying to find him an owner because I can't keep him.

    That is a shame that you have to rehome this shark. I have 7 of these as I rescue them and they are housed in trios in 10000 gallon ponds. If you struggle to find a home for it you can use me as a back up. Please email me if you have any questions or need some help with it. Kind regards Karl.

I have my ray for a few weeks now. I can tell it was wild caught. After hand feeding it, it will come up and take food out my hand. It is still a little hand shy but I always try to feed by hand. The next thing is make sure the ray has food on the bottom of the tank for night time. The are pretty active at night and do eat it. The next thing is water quality. I use a protein skimmer and an inline UV light. I also have a sand star. And as far as the ray going after smaller fish and inverterbrates. The ray leaves them alone. I have ample spots in my tank for hidding and use over half the tank for him. I am looking at new tanks. I found one in my local aquarium store that they use for frogs. Its 80 gallons. It is the same size as a 125 gallon but the sides aren't as high. But the same setup as for the skimmer and uv light. And these animals are awesome to have as pets. Great for watching and great for the kids to learn about them.

Nurse sharks are not good for home aquariums. A Federal Permit IS required to collect them and have to be sold to a licensed wholesale facility. State waters there is a 54" size limit (in Florida). Then sold Pet Stores. It is a myth the fish only grows to the size of the tank.
