Customer Comments

 

I recently ordered a tiger fish from a local pet store and they said they are shipping it in brackish water but I was planning on keeping it in a freshwater tank, what should I do?  I was planning on making my 10 gal. tank into a brackish water tank temperarerly and slowly reduce the amount of salt I put in the tank until it is completely fresh.
 
Would rock salt work, or should I go buy aquarium salt?  Also, I already have platies, mollies, and swordtail in the tank, will they be harmed by the salt?  I'm not worried about the tiger fish eating the other fish because it is only going to be 2" long.
 
Thanks
Jason H.

 
 
 
Reply. Hi Jason, Siamese Tiger Fish (STF) do well in aquariums with or without Aquarium Salt. This is explained on our page about the STF. Click here to go to that page now.

You say that the STF will be shipped in brackish water to your local pet store, so it would be best to add the same amount of Aquarium Salt to the water in your aquarium. This is usually about 1-Tablespoon of Aquarium Salt per each 5-gallons of aquarium water. If so, you'd add 2 Tablespoons to your 10-gallon aquarium. You might ask your local pet store how much Aquarium Salt they would recommend.

Mollies, Platies, and Swordtails are all livebearers and prefer water with about 1-Tablespoon of Aquarium Salt in each 5-gallons of water. So they will do fine in the salted water. Click here to read more about Mollies, here for more about Platies, and here for more about Swordtails. On each page scroll down to the paragraph labeled "Appropriate Home" where you'll read that these fish prefer salted water.

I recommend you use Aquarium Salt, which is sold in most stores that sell pet fish. Click here to read more about Aquarium Salt, and about why we recommend using it, and why we do not recommend rock salt.

Here is a note of caution. At 2" your new STF may be too small to eat the Mollies, Platies, and Swordtails. But the STF has a huge expanding mouth, and so it may surprise you by eating your smaller fish. If the STF arrives at 2.5" or 3", it will surely start eating your other fish.

STF are caught in the wild and not raised by fish farmers. So the available sizes vary depending on what can be caught. The wholesaler shipping to your pet store may not be able to ship a STF that is exactly the size you order. Lists of fish from Tropical Fish wholesalers are rarely accurate in the sizes that they list. You should think about what you will do if the SAE is bigger than 2".

What else besides goldfish will a silver datnoid eat? Do they like ghost shrimp? Also how big do you think one would get in my 60 gal tank? I have alot of filtration. 1 emporer filter, 1 hot mag and a fluval 300.
 
Thankyou!
Rick
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Rick. I feed Guppies, Live Black Worms, and Ghost Shrimp to my Silver Tiger Fish. Click here for information about Ghost Shrimp, and click here for information about Live Black Worms. Incidentally, we do not sell or ship Live Black Worms.

My Silver Tiger Fish is only 3" long now, and will have to be fed comets as he gets bigger. I have him in an aquarium with a Peacock Bass that is 6" long and a Gold Tiger Fish that is 8" long plus a few other cichlids. In your 60-gallon tank, a Silver Tiger Fish might grow up to be 10" to 12" long.

We do not recommend the Hot Magnum Filter or the Fluval Filter that you have in your aquarium, instead we recommend filters with BIO-Wheels. Click here for more information about BIO-Wheels.
