Suggestion on how to improve this web site: get pictures for all the fish on the sale list. sell to canada if you don't already.

Reply. Hello Chatelle, thank you for your email. We are adding more pictures to this web site.

Yesterday one of our crew members, The Big Katuna, took pictures of a Calico Ryukin and a Red and White Ryukin. These are fancy types of Goldfish from Japan.

Click here to see these new pictures. These two new pictures now give us a total of 506 pictures on this web site.

We have taken most of these pictures right here in our own facility, so you can get a good idea of what our fish look like.

We apologize that we haven't gotten photos of all the fish taken yet. But we're working on it every week.

We haven't been able to ship outside of the U.S. Here is a quote from another page in this website.

"For various reasons that are beyond our control, we cannot ship outside of the United States. We apologize for any disappointment that this causes people living outside of the United States.

"In particular this has disappointed people living in Canada, but we are unable to ship to Canada, and we do not foresee shipping to Canada in the future."

I have been at this site everyday for the past couple of weeks ever sence I discovered it. Hope you don't mind that I keep sending questions to you. I'm going to try and ask all my questions in this letter. I am keeping two inch long black piranhas, (I think), and a spotted Sailfin plecostomus in a 25-gallon eclipse model tank. My piranhas look just like the ones on the home page of the site "www.piranha.org" and they also look just like the Silver Dollar pictures on your site.

How can I be figure out what they really are? Also, I found that my "piranhas" are picky eaters. They only seem to like live food, (I've feed them blood worms, brine shrimp, and they have eated some fins of feeders,) and are very relutant to try frozen, (cichlid food), or freeze dried foods, (mimi-krill). What can I feed them to maximize their natural color? Furthermore, I read on your site that a you can tell that a plecostomus is happy and healthy if its fins are spread.
 
I find that my spotted Sailfin plecosomus often has its Sailfin claped to its body. The water is a consistant 79 degrees. He has only been in there for about a week or so and has no place to hide from the aquarium light that I keep on about 4 to 7 hours a day. Could this have anything to do with it? If not, what could be the problem and how can I fix it. Thank you, on behalf of my fish and myself, for all the help you have given us on this new aquarium.

Reply. Hello again. Thank you for your emails. I enjoy reading every one of your emails, and I want to compliment you on your concern for your fish's well being.

I wish I could just somehow tell you that your Piranhas were the such-and-such subspecies of a particular species of a certain species, but I can't. I usually can't exactly identify the fish in my own aquariums.

Your Piranhas may have come from a slightly different location than some other Piranhas, and it might not be clear to a scientist right there in the jungle, whether your Piranhas are a new subspecies or even a new species of Piranha.

To make things even more confusing is the fact that the scientists change their minds from time to time, as they obtain new facts.

By the way, Silver Dollars are rather closely related to Piranhas, and sometimes it is difficult to distinguish them from Piranhas.

Piranhas often arrive as stowaways in shipments of wild Silver Dollars, so both Piranhas and silver Dollars probably come from the same waters.

Today I was looking at some dogs in my neighborhood, and I thought, "Dang, if I didn't know for sure that they were all dogs, and that they are all the same species, then I might wonder if they were subspecies of one species or even different species."

Some of the dogs looked much different that some of the other dogs.

Many years ago my brother and I were frustrated by a similar situation, when we were importing wild fish from Lake Malawi, every shipment had some fish from a new location in the lake, that might be many miles from the locations that we had previously gotten fish from, and the new fish didn't look quite the same as the previous fish.

We were confounded by an expanding number of unidentified species and subspecies.

Then one day, after many years, all this frustration just evaporated out of my mind. I decided that what I wanted to do was take the best care of the fish that I had in my aquariums.

I would do my best to accurately identify them, but I wouldn't be frustrated if I couldn't identify them, because identifying them was just beyond my ability to figure out exactly what species I was looking at.

I also realized that if I came close to identifying the new fish, then I could start by giving it the same care as a closely related fish that I knew about.

In this way I was able to give most fish very good care, and that was really my goal. It was not my real goal to know the exact scientific name of every fish.

Though I am not against the attempt by scientists to name are catalog all the species.

For example, most of the Piranhas seem to require about the same care. When we imported some Wimple's Piranhas, we noticed that they looked quite different from the other Piranhas we'd previously imported, and the behavior of the Wimple's Piranhas was quite different too.

It turned out that the Wimple's Piranhas needed a different sort of care.

But I didn't need to know that in advance, because I could guess it might be true just from looking at them and seeing that they looked and acted quite different.

I hope you get my point. I'm not trying to be unfriendly or brush your question off. I'm just trying to tell you how I deal with this situation of not ever really quite knowing the exact name of some of  the fish in my aquariums.

But I am more determined and more focused on giving all my fish the best care that I can give them, suing what I do know about them and their close relatives.

I recommend that you try feeding your Piranhas some pieces of white fish that you can often buy in the super market for human consumption.

Here is a trick. Don't feed your Piranhas for a day. It won't really hurt them. Their metabolism is slower than ours.

On the second day they'll be real hungry, then put a small piece of the white fish in their aquarium. Carefully watch your Piranhas.

They will probably eat the white fish. If they don't eat it, then take it out of the aquarium with a small net, and a couple of days later repeat this whole process.

I predict they will eventually eat the white fish. The Piranhas in the small video on this web site had just finished eating a large amount of white fish, when I filmed them.

Click here to see them in the short video now.

Now about your Plecostomus. I think you have good intuition about the light. Most Pleco. are nocturnal and don't enjoy lots of light.

So your new Pleco. may be feeling some stress from being exposed to too much light. Four to seven hours of light each day is too much light for a Pleco.

Generally I recommend that most people turn their aquarium light on for a while in the morning, when feeding their fish, so they can carefully observe their fish, and do the same in the evening.

Have the light on for a total of an hour or two a day, and always be sure that all your fish have several darkish places to hide, where they can go to relax.

i see thet you are in the United States and i live in Canada. how much more would it be for me to order fish from you. you have very good prices except that it would be more for me.
 
i am interested in getting a black koi (maybe a few others), a female oscar, a female gourami, an eel, and some dalmation lyretail mollies. i probably won't get all these but i am interested in these particular fish.
 
is it possible that there are some Canadian fish breeders that you know of if it is too expensive for me to order from you.
 
thanx,
chatelle v.
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Chatelle, for reasons that are completely beyond our control we cannot ship to Canada or anywhere else outside of the U.S., and we do not foresee shipping ourside the U.S. in the future.

We do have lots of nice Black Koi and all the other fish that you listed, and we apologize if this situation is frustrating to you. We don't know any fish breeders in Canada.

I have just got my first Vegetarian Cichlid. I was wondering what would be the best thing to feed him.

Reply. Hello Joanna. Actually floating flake foods and various pellet foods all contain lots of vegetables. There are also various green flakes and pellets with an even higher vegetable content.

Finally there are some algae flakes available too. I suggest you look for these foods and carefully read the information about the ingredients on the labels.

Suggestion: more searchable information.
 
Comments: I came to your site looking for aquatic plants for my 2 fire bellied toads. I have read that the toads like pothos plants, but I don't know what other kind of plants they might like. I was hoping to find out this information from your website so I could buy these plants. Can you help me?
 
Thanks

Reply. Hello Mickey, I have limited experience with these toads. I too have heard that they do well with Pothos.

Spathodus should also work. What you want is a semi-aquatic plant. These are plants that live in the water but grow out of the water. I believe this is called emergent.

You might go to a store that sells ponds, and see if they have a pond set up. I often see pond set up in stores that sell them.

In these ponds I've seen Mondo Grass and other semi-aquatic plants in pond set ups. These plants might work for you.

Of course you'd want to be certain that none of these plants is toxic to your toad.

Some of the fish I was interested in did not have pictures to go with them. Pictures of all the fish you sell would be great.
 
I have a saltwater aquarium, a brackish aquarium, and a freshwater aquarium. I have a lot of trouble finding fish for my brackish aquarium. Some of the fish I would like to add to this aquarium are knight gobies, figure eight puffers, bumblebee gobies, spotted puffers, green scats, and an anablep.
 
A few of these fish I have found available on your website, and I was wondering about the availability of the others. This is a great website! It is very informative and fun to browse through.
 
Thanks for all your help!

Reply. Hello Tara, thank you for your reminder about the pictures. We are trying to add more pictures.

We don't sell Bumblebee Gobies because they are wild fish that  don't ship well for us.

Click here to read about our decision not to offer fish that don't ship well for us.

We also don't sell Anableps but we might sell them in the future. They are wild fish that do ship well, and the way their eyes extend above and below the water is very interesting.

We do have a picture of an Anablep. Click here to see it. You can click on that picture to see bigger image of the same picture with more details.

We appreciate your complimentary comments. Thank you.

can a female and male live together in a 3gal tank?
 
Robert C.
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Robert, I have carefully watched male Bettas and seen that their territories usually vary from about 24" to about 36" in diameter.

If your aquarium is at least 48" long, the female will be able to leave the male's territory and not be bothered by him.

But some male Bettas are more energetic and aggressive, and they cannot be kept with other Bettas even in a very big aquarium.

So you could try putting your male and female in the same large aquarium, and then carefully watch them to see how they act.

You should put them together on a day when you can watch them from time to time.

You can also float the female in a fish bowl in your aquarium, and see how the male reacts to her. I hope these ideas help you.

hi i just got a pacu and would like to now if they would be ok with african cichlids also i know that they are ok with the Neotropical ones which i just ordered from u guys recently, i was just wondering if they would be any different with the africans.
 
thank you

Reply. Hello Tina, click here to go to the page in this web site about Pacus, where you can read about compatible tank mates for Pacus.

I've never kept a Pacu with African Cichlids, so I'm hesitant to give you advice about something I have never done.

Keeping African Cichlids and Pacus together might work. You could try it, but be cautious and be sure to watch the fish carefully.

Combine them on a day, when you can observe them from time to time, and separate them, if things go bad.
