I have a clown triggerfish, a picasso triggerfish, and a panther grouper in a 10 gallon tank and they are doing fine so far! They never fight and when they do it seems they are just playing. They are great fish!

    I hope you're joking... that's just wrong and incredibly cruel. None of those fish belong in a 10g tank! By now, I'm guessing all three would have either died from ammonia poisoning or killed each other... do a little research before buying fish; what you're doing is called animal cruelty.
  • Steve - 2010-10-18
    These fish should never be placed in a 10 gallon tank. This tank is way too small. They definitely would fight.
  • Mike - 2010-12-12
    Really???? In a 10 gallon??
  • chris - 2011-01-10
    For those fish you need at least a 100 gallon tank. That's wrong.
  • Hew Janus - 2011-02-09
    You need to do a lot more research into what you are buying and what its needs are.
    Saying you have had one of these for ages (7 months) is talking rubbish.... they can live anything up to 25yrs. get to 20" and become more and more aggressive as they get older. As they mature the become very territorial, and will fight and kill any other fish in the tank. They need at least a 200 gal Tank. And they need mental stimulus.
    Learn before you buy. As you are just wasting your money and killing a pet.

    I nano tank can be used for months to quarantine new large fish, I read an extra large angelfish or trigger fish need a thirty gallon. I tried it, they left out you need flow (circulation pumps), and skimmers rated for 150 gallons, I did twice that. Anything 5-7 inches can't survive in a 10 gallon (large to extra large salt water fish). I pet store in CT sold me a show size queen angelfish once in a 10 or 20 gallon, they where about to push it into a net, I told them they have to use a large jar or bucket (they seemed dumb and dumber). The type of fish is not the point, its the size, allot of the comments don't make any sense, you should post something meaningful and useful to other people based on experience and positive results. I just had to put a 4 inch Blue-lined trigger fish in a 10 gallon, it was attacking everything in its path, that will change quickly, its hard to get three fish the same size when ordering on the web, never happens, or the order is partially filled.

About 2 weeks ago, my goldfish started growing these bumps on his nose/ upper lip. Now there are 3 of them. He is about 7-8 inches long , shares a tank with another goldfish of the same size and a 14 inch pleco. They are in a 30 gallon tank with 2 filters, one for a 25-50 gallon tank and one for a 10-15 gallon tank. I haven't used chemicals in their tank since right after it was set up. They seemed fine until this growth a couple of weeks ago.

    If your fish is a variety that has a cap, like an oranda or lionhead, it could just be the beginnings of his cap.
  • Jana Beth Berry - 2014-02-04
    I dont believe he is, but I am not sure. He is at least a year and a half old now. I got him from the 25cent tank at the pet store. I am not familiar with those breeds of gold fish. Would it take this long to grow his cap?
  • Jana Beth Berry - 2014-02-04
    I just looked up the oranda and lionhead goldfish. He looks like neither one. He has a single tail and a dorsel fin. I cant figure out how to upload a picture on here to show what I am talking about.
  • Clarice Brough - 2014-02-05
    If you fish is eating an acting normal, I wouldn't worry too much. As far as the cap... The cap is known as a 'wen'. It can starts to show some as early as 3 - 4 months, but it really starts forming at about 1 - 2 years, and becomes full in about 2 - 2 1/2 years.

    A Black Ghost Knife can get aggressive with its own or similar species, possibly like those nice flowing fins of the angel! Making sure the tank isn't too small, these guys reach 20' in length, and that there are plenty of hiding placed all around the tank can help.

My Regent parrot, Milo will be 26 next month. Yes, I have had him the entire time. Anyone have a 'realistic' life span range for these birds? Everything I have read is 20-25. Well, he has surpassed that! Thanks!

    You rock! Your Regent is well cared for, and long-lived. I have read 25, and up to 30 years as an average lifespan for these birds.

    Hi Dave, You have done the right thing ignoring your vet, that is so extreme and should only ever be considered in dire cases. Once you take them in they become part of the family and that doesn't become an option. There are lots of treatments available and I found the best to be the natural ones. Our old English use to get sore feet as they tend to wee on them when they go and it burns the skin. Firstly try washing her feet often and drying properly. We also found antihistamine work to help with inflammation. Humans use a oat bath to soothe skin complaints so that may be worth a try?!? Soak oats in some tights in warm water then use that to wash with. Lastly you could try Manuka honey, it's expensive but can work wonders for lots of things for man & dog. You can try melting a tsp In warm water (not hot as you'll damage the goodness) and rinsing the area with it and also feeding it to the dog can sometimes help their natural immunity. I really hope one of those helps and if in doubt you can always contact a reuse center before you put a dog down for advice.

    Hi. I am so glad you did not listen to your vet.English Bull terriers are prone to a lot of skin problems and vets tend to want to stuff them with drugs. Our bull terrier is suffering from inter digital cysts which is common also in bull terriers. The vet recommended all types of drugs for this complaint which when we researched them they caused all kinds of problems in the long term. I think it is better to try more natural treatments to cure the skin infections that this breed suffers from. Firstly look at the diet you feed your dog as a lot of these breeds have allergies to certain foods and a lot of them do not get on well with grains in the commercial foods. I would try a more natural diet if that is possible and if you can get some pure salmon body oil not salmon liver oil. If you can obtain this add a little to the food each day, start it gradually then build it up to the correct amount for your dog. Again as the other person suggested try an oat wash, as this soothes the skin. Hope this helps,

I had a similar experience as Freddie - My husband and I were moving and I cleaned out the fish tank and put all of my fish into a huge tote to transport them to our new house. I had a pyramid in my tank at the time and I forgot about my spotted (I never saw him eat EVER and I would only see him if i had the tank light off - he would come out of hiding.) I put all of my decorations into a garbage bag and my grandparents drve everything to my new house in their van. I started setting up the tank and had it filled aobut half way and I was cleaning off the plants a bit. I moved my plants and in the bottom of the bag was my spotted! I panicked a little bit but he had enough water in the bottom of the bag he survived and is at his 3rd home now! (I moved across the country and had to leave my fish with my parents) LOL! It was a crazy story I had to share!

My golden dojo loach is about 5 months old. He is in a 46 gallon tank with a common pleco, rainbow shark, amd a dwarf neon gourami. The tank has a live plant (along with hiding places and rocks), filter, sand, and heater. A few days ago I noticed he sort of floated from his tail end but managed to keep himself where he wanted to be. An hour ago I noticed he was floating upside down at the top and breathing. I have been watching him and I notice he is trying to flip back right side up but can't seem to do it. I'm very worried about him and not sure what to do. I have a smaller tank with my dwarf frog that I could transfer him to but I don't want to make him more uncomfortable with the transfer. I also don't know if he's been eating enough. I feed them a very good amount but the gourami and shark seem to always be hungry and eat. I've caught the shark chasing him around the tank a few times but the loach doesn't have any noticeable injuries. Just a little pale. Please help me out. I love this lil guy.

    These are strong fish, but he sounds like he's very stressed, most likely from the tankmates A separate tank to recover would be good, and make sure there are plenty of hiding places, especially with soft whispy plants.

I have one of these, he lives with my orange toadfish, and I have actually seen him smack the toadfish in the face with his tail fin and the toadfish just sits there! He is a silly little fish and I like him a lot!
