  • Goldfish bullying other goldfish?

    4 fish in the tank. The same 2 are picking on the same 1 constantly. The other one isn't bullying or being bullied by the 2 goldfish. They are chasing him around the tank, trying to eat his flippers, bludgeoning him with their bodies... What can I do to stop this??

  • Reused Infected Fish Tank??!?

    Best answer: Bleach the insides of the tank by filling the tank all the way and adding 1/4 cup of bleach per gallon. Let it sit for 24 hours, then rinse and let dry COMPLETELY. Then rinse again and dry completely again, and then you should be good to go for a refill. Good luck!

  • Help me!’ I put live aquatic plants in my fish tank and they all died.?

    Best answer: No the plants didnt kill the fish. NO DO NOT take the fish out of the tank! Your tank is not cycled if you have zero nitrate, in their lies the problem. So leave the fish in and do a fish in cycle. Taking them out will stress and kill them, they need stable temperature and stable environment. get seachums prime... show more

    get seachums prime and seachums stress guard and use them both twice a week until the tank is cycled , and with all new water, then just with all new water.

  • Do only goldfish become too lonely?

    My 16 year old daughter has an Oranda who grew up with her. It hasn’t seen any other animals since at least 10 years or more ago. It’s always been extremely healthy.

However, since I ve gotten them, one of them seems to be a bit aggressive and jump at the other one? What I mean is, he runs into him intentionally and chases him around the tank, nudging him, etc. The other one hides in the corner constantly and won t eat as much. What do I do? I feel horrible for that one fish, but I don t want to traumatize the other one.

    I currently have a 75 gallon tropical community setup with a variety of fish including some ram cichlids. I would like a larger tank and would love to stock the following even though I know it is probably not feasible * 6 discus * 12 cardinal tetras * 2 German blue rams * 2 blue balloon rams * 2 gold rams * 2 angelfish * 2 bristle nose plecos * 6 Cory cats Give or take and possibly some tiger barbs although I know they are fin nippers so they might not do well with discus. Also possibly some striped khuli loaches or bichirs. Could these fish co exist together and what size tank would be needed? I was thinking anywhere from 125 gal to 350 gal.

    My fish have ich. I had purchased some fish from a local store, who were evidently sick. I lost 2 of my cory cats already. I moved my betta fish to a smaller, qt tank. He s doing much better, but my issue is he doesn t have a heater in there. The reason I moved him in the first place was because the feeder guppies (which I rehomed) were nipping at his fins and freaking him out, and I wanted to treat him separately. I ve been treating him with aquarium salt and a medication that isn t safe for the cories. I did buy some medication I can use on the cories at half dose, starting tomorrow. Would it be better to put him back in his regular tank, without finishing the treatment I ve been giving him? Until today I ve been able to keep his little tank warm, the temperature dropped outside and it s gotten pretty cold in my room. I don t have a second heater, just the one in his main tank. But I m also afraid if I move him back, he ll get worse again

    I have a small 20 litre tank (aqua mode 300 - semi circle shaped) and I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions on what I could keep in here and the numbers of them. I am currently struggling as I am not familiar with many fish that can cope in a tank that small. I was considering filling it with live plants and getting a colony of cherry shrimp, but I heard they breed quickly...is this true? Is there any way I could get just males or just females or would this not be okay. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated, thank you.

    Nearly all my fish died within the last week. I have a freshwater tank. My fish, after the last cleaning, started staying near the bottom or swimming vertically at the top. I got the water tested but there was no problem. I changed the water again and nothing changed. 10 of the 16 fish died and the others are still looking miserable. Most of them have gotten red streaks along their whole body. We have a filter system and nothing seems wrong. Is there something I forgot? What is happening
