Hi after thousand's of glanced sites I have found one that gives me all the necessary information., I enjoy your site!
 
I would also like to comment on a problem. I have a 10-gallon Tropical Fish tank I have done your visual and smelling test and the water is crystal clear and the tank smells pretty good in it there's a beautiful very peaceful male beta, 4 glass crystal fishes from wish one just disappeared leaving me with only 3 I also homed 2 small alga eaters who also disappeared
 
I don't know what's wrong the water quality looks good the other fishes do not show any diseased problems also are very peaceful among themselves and I have not been able to spot any body parts of the glass fish who measured about 2.5" and the other two alga eaters who measured around the same size do you think maybe they have burry themselves under the gravel? I am fearful that any day from now the remaining fish will also disappear.
 
Thanks
Armida
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Armida. Thank you for your compliment. We are glad to read that you are making good use of the information on this web site.

Glass Fish and Algae Eaters do not burrow under the gravel. Of course, your gravel should be at most 1/4" thick, so these fish shouldn't be able to burrow deep enough to be out of sight.

Click here for information about Glass Fish.

The explanation that occurs to me is that your fish jumped out of your Tropical Fish tank. I'm sure you will be very sad, if you find them on the floor behind your tank.

If you don't find them, maybe your cat found them. Cats will eat fresh fish or dried out fish. If your fish dried out on the floor, they may have been swept away or sucked up by the vacuum cleaner.

This all sounds terrible, and I hope it didn't happen. But you should be sure that your Tropical Fish tank has a good cover with no holes that the fish can jump through.

Seems I'm having a little hard of a time with my Redtail Shark ... seems he is controling the tank with the other fish ... if they get to a certain part of the tank, he chases them back to the side they came from ... and at feeding time he chases them so they can't eat all that much ....
 
any sugestions to cure this ... the tank is a ten gallon ... he is a year old and about 3 inches long ... the biggest fish in the tank ... the other fish are neons and red cherry barbs ... but he doesn't mess with my dwarf puffers ...
 
thank you ...
Wayne Puffer
 
I know ... last name is like the fish ... heard it all my life ... thats why I have the fish now ...
 
 
 
Reply. Hello, Wayne, here is how I approached your problem. Click here to go to the page about Redtail Sharks (RTS), where I read, "Appropriate home. An aquarium with at least 20-gallon of water, ..."

Your RTS's territory covers your entire aquarium. You need need a bigger aquarium so your RTS can have his territory and the other fish can have some space too.

Click here for more information about Neon Tetras, where you can read about compatible tank mates.

RTS are not compatible with Neons. RTS usually are compatible with Platies and with Puffers.

I can honestly tell you I can't think of any improvements, you need. I can't believe you shipped to me in Wisconsin from Calif. And they were the healthiest fish I have ever purchased. And your info. is the best.
 
I checked out every site on the net, before I decided where to buy my fish. You won by a landslide. I rate you as a A+++++++
 
My first aquarium was a cow tank, my uncle raised perch in. I was 6 yrs. old. I have love fish ever since. I had fish tanks years ago, but it was not until I came across your site, I decided to have fish again. Its been 25 yrs.
 
Thank You

Reply. Thank you, Sue, for your compliments. All of us here appreciate reading positive comments about our web site and about the fish we have shipped.

I grew up on a farm with a cow, and those big cow tanks make good aquariums and good ponds.

Suggestion: get some exotic fish, don't just show the good comments peolpe send you. get pictures for All your fish, get better prices, don't email peolpe having 1,000 links ..................................
 
 
 
Reply. This is one of the very few negative comments received at AquariumFish.net. I don't feel too defensive about your comments, but I don't think they're justified.

Pictures? We don't yet have pictures of all the fish we offer for sale, but there are now 483 pictures on AquariumFish.net, and we add a few more each week.

That seems like quite a few, and pictures of fish are often difficult to take. The Big Katuna, a member of our crew, has recently started taking some great pictures of some of the fish in our aquariums.

Click here to see some of his recent pictures.

Exotic fish? We've recently added Abramite Head Standers, Royal Clown Knifefish, Large Red Cap Orandas, Spotted Sailfin Plecos. (L001), Vampire Pleco, and many others.

Click here to see the pictures of these fish. Click here for the prices and links to more information. All of the fish mentioned in the previous paragraph and many more of the fish in this web site are surely exotic.

Prices? We try to keep the prices of the fish and the price of shipping as low as we can. But we definitely do not believe in cutting corners.

We buy very good fish ... we call them Premium Fish. We have well-trained people working in our facilities, and they take very good care of our fish.

We wait until the fish are fully acclimated, before we ship them. All of this costs a little bit more, but we love our fish, and we like doing things right.

Comments? Now we don't show just the good comments people send us. We have your comments too. ;^)

hi i have a 2" bronze goldfish, a 1.5" black moore, a 1.5" golden orfe, a 2" mirror carp and a 3" weather loach in a coldwater setup and i was wondering if a male betta would be compatable
 
yours hopefully

Reply. Hello Jack. I have kept Bettas with Goldfish and other cool water fish many times. They usually get along well together.

Click here for more about Male Bettas.

Click here for more about Fancy Goldfish.

The fish, that you now have in your aquarium, can tolerate very cold water. But a Betta usually start to suffer, if the temperature of the water is below about 65 degrees F.

So get a thermometer, hang it inside your aquarium, and check the temperature every few days. Click here for more about thermometers.

We advise feeding your Betta a diet of BettaMin and Freeze Dried Blood Worms (FDBW) and feeding your small Goldfish TetraFin.

If you put a Betta in your aquarium, I would recommend you feed TetraFin first each morning, and make sure the Goldfish get plenty to eat. Next feed BettaMin and try to be sure that your Betta gets plenty.

The Goldfish will gobble at the BettaMin, and Goldfish should not eat a lot of food that is prepared for Tropical Fish or for Bettas.

Next I would feed some of the FDBW. Try to be sure the Betta gets some of the FDBW, before the other fish eat all of the FDBW.

I also feed almost all of my fish a few live Black Worms each day. Click here to read about feeding Black Worms.

Click here for more information about feeding fish.

Finally, always watch your fish a couple of times each day to make sure they are getting along well.

Click here for information about Signs of Stress and Disease. If you see that your Betta is showing any Signs of Stress and Disease, move it to a Fish Bowl and give it the Recommended Treatment.

Hello,
 
First, I'd just like to say this is the best website about fish I've ever seen or could even imagine!
 
I have one question. I have a one gallon aquarium that inhabits one male betta. I would like to add something to the aquarium and I'm wondering if a ghost shrimp would be appropriate. Would that be too crowded? Is there something else that would be a better addition or should I just leave the betta all alone?
 
Thanks!
Jean L.
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Jean and thank you for your compliment about this web site.

I keep Ghost Shrimp and White Clouds in the Fish Bowls with my Bettas. I like it that way. I also keep Java Ferns or Aponogeton plants too.

But I have large 1.5 gallon (6 quart) fish bowls. Click here for more about these fish bowls, including information about cultured gravel.

Even using this large fish bowl and following the advice given at the link near the end of the last paragraph, once in a while something unusual happens.

For example, sometimes a Betta has attacked the Ghost Shrimp or White Clouds. Very infrequently the White Clouds have nipped at a Betta, and one customer reported to me that she saw her Ghost Shrimp attacking her Betta.

For the most part these things do not happen, but once in a while they do, and I like it being a little bit unpredictable.

So I spend some time each day looking at my fish bowls. If I see there is a problem, I move one of more of the inhabitants to another fish bowl, an aquarium, or even to my pond.

The more I watch; the more interesting things I see. So I enjoy the complexity of having a Betta, White Clouds, Ghost Shrimp, and live plants in my fish bowls.

But the added complexity makes it more of a challenge, that you might not enjoy.

I also like to accessorize my fish bowls. Not so much putting stuff in my fish bowls, but putting things around my fish bowls. I like ceramic fish ornaments, silk plants, shells, and other such objects.

I recently saw a beautiful fish bowl sitting on a marble tile, another fish bowl on a mirror tile, and a third fish bowl on a glass cloud plate or tray. All of these fish bowls were very beautiful.

I have several times hatched brine shrimp for food for my fish but don't know what to do with them once they hatch ...
 
Steve
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Steve. I turn off the aeration in the hatching container and hang a small light a few inches above the container.

The newly hatched brine shrimp (NHBS) swim toward the light, and I carefully suck them up from near the surface of the water with a turkey baster, which you can buy in many stores.

Then I squirt the NHBS into a small container filled with salted water. After I've harvested enough of the NHBS, I turn the aeration back on in the hatching container and go on a trip around all of my aquariums and give all the small fish a small squirt of the water with NHBS.

As with all foods, be careful not to feed more than the fish will eat. Any uneaten NHBS will die in the fresh water in a few hours and foul the water in the aquarium. I think that should answer your question, Steve.

Lets back up now and explain that brine shrimp are small shrimp that grow to be about 3/8" long and live in places like San Diego Bay, San Francisco Bay, and Mono Lake in California.

They also live in eastern Oregon, the Great Salt Lake in Utah, and there are brine shrimp in China too.

Brine shrimp produce eggs that are very small and very hard. You can sometimes find them for sale in pet stores with instructions on how to hatch the eggs.

The instructions usually say to add 7 or 8 tablespoons of Aquarium Salt to a gallon of water, then add a small amount of the brine shrimp eggs, and aerate the water.

You can build a very nice brine shrimp hatching container from a 2-liter plastic soda bottle.

Clean the soda bottle, screw the top on tightly, cup off the bottom of the soda bottle, invert the soda bottle in some sort of holder, and put an aerator in the bottom of the bottle.

If the water is about 70 degrees F., the brine shrimp eggs will hatch in about 48 hours. If the water is warmer, the eggs will hatch sooner.
