Reply. Hello Arthur, We don't have any way to ship fish to anyone with an address outside of the U.S.

We have talked with the U.S. Postal Service, U.P.S., FedEx, and Airborne, and they all declined to accept live fish, animals, or plants for delivery outside the U.S.

We asked them to reconsider their decision, and they all declined our second request.

These companies gave us no explanation beyond saying that they have regulations that prohibit accepting any live fish, animals, or plants for delivery to an address outside of the U.S.

So there is no company that will accept our packages for delivery outside of the U.S. We do not foresee shipping outside the U.S. in the future.

We are also often asked if we have a store, or if we can recommend a store in Canada, in the U.K., or in any other country. But we do not.

We have only one facility, and we do not know of other sources in other countries that we could recommend.

We appreciate your inquiry and your interest in our fish, and we apologize if this information disappoints you.

Reply. Hello Randy, you probably can't tell the genders of your two Oscars, and if I were there looking at your Oscars, I probably couldn't tell their genders either.

Click here to go to another page in this web site with more information about Oscars.

In particular I direct your attention to the bottom of that page, where there is a discussion about determining the gender of Oscars.

Hi have recently purchased my first Betta he will be with me at my work office.  I am concerned about what kind of care I should be doing (food, etc) for him when I go away on the weekends and on vacation.  Your help would be greatly appreciated as new at this sort of thing.
 
Maria
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Maria, click here for more information about caring for Bettas.

Your Betta will be able to tolerate going without food from Friday afternoon until Monday morning.

But a three day weekend will be a bit too long without food. You'll need to make some arrangement to feed your Bettas at least every third day.

Click here for more about feeding fish.

I recommend that you find someone else working in your office, who is interested in your Betta, and show that person how to feed your Betta.

Then you'll have someone, who can feed your Betta, when you are out of the office.

thank you.

Reply. Hello Phyllis, thank you for your email. I wish I could help you and supply your grandson with all the details about the catfish that are growing in your lake.

But I can't. These details will vary depending on the water temperature, the available food, predators, and many other factors.

Different species of catfish vary in their rates of growth, and there are many species of catfish.

I have a suggestion for you. Ask around locally. There is almost always someone who knows a lot about the local fish.

There are often local fisheries and game wardens, who will know or they will know a professor at the local college, who will know all about these catfish.

I certainly think you are lucky to have your own lake, or even to live near one with interesting catfish, and if I were there I'd want to find out a lot more about those catfish.

Good luck in your search.

We don't have pictures yet of the Peacock Eel and the Zig Zag Eel, but we have these Eels in our facility. We'll try to take pictures of them, and put the pictures on our list.

Thank you for your interest in our Eels.

Dear Aquarium Fish
 
I went to your website but my connection is slow today and it was taking an age to get into your pages.  I am teaching English in China and was given four fish as a gift.  Three were goldfish and the fourth an unknown fish.  Unfortunately as they were living in bowls my unknown fish, originally called Frangipani whom I'll now call Pirahna, attacked and killed one of the goldfish. I think the space was too small for two or perhaps she's just aggressive.
 
I've bought a tank etc. for my goldfish and they are happy.  Pirahna is still alone in a bowl and before I leave China and give them away I'd like to buy another tank.  BUT I really need to know what kind of fish she is.  When I went to the shops I saw a similar fish that was silvery blue, very similar to the middle picture on your logo header, but they could only tell me the Chinese name.
 
Pirahna is in fact yellowish.  She has a thin silvery body with subtle yellow diagonal ! stripes.  Her dorsal fin is ovalish and her bottom fin  runs parallel  the full length of her body ending at an angle close to the tail. She has two long feeler fins below her head. She has bright yellow spots on fins and tail on a subtler yellow field.  There is a slightly purplish tinge to her head and fins.  She has a voracious appetite (maybe she's not getting the right food), is very curious and never seems to seek food on the bottom - unlike the goldfish.
 
She really does look like the middle fish in your home page photos.  What is this fish? Any other ideas . . . .
 
Thanks
Lyned
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Lyned, there are five fish that are shown across the top of this page, and middle fish is a Cobalt Zebra from Lake Malawi in East Africa.

The Cobalt Zebra is a type of Mbuna, which is a group of fish living in Lake Malawi. Click here to read more about the Mbuna Fish from Lake Malawi.

Could an Mbuna Fish from Africa be in China? If so, this is a very aggressive fish. Far too aggressive to live with Goldfish.

Hi
 
Thank you so much for your reply and for your excellent web page. It has often, in the last few days saved hours of work for me by providing good information and pictures. It is also easy to navigate. This is important as the internet is my only source of information in China.
 
I misled you about the identity of my fish and your excellent pages put me right.  After I sent you that mail, I looked again at the middle fish on your header and saw it is NOT like my fish and I now know that my fish is a male Gold Gourami exactly like the one in your catalogue.  This is great news as I can now work out the best environment for him. Luckily the weather has been hot.
 
I've also discovered after several more hours on the net (including your site) that my goldfish aren't goldfish at all (I'm a complete beginner with no fish experience). One is a red male swordtail. (I kept wondering about his rather fetching tail which is not yet prominent).  The other I believe is a female platy.  She has a white face and orange body and a triangular ventral fin.
 
Actually I mainly wanted to thank you and let you  know the true identities of my masquerading fish.
 
Cheers from China.  You should open into China. They really need compassionate fishcare here!!!

Reply. Hello again Lyned, glad to read that you have solved your mysteries. I apologize for not being more help to you in identifying your fish.

As I read the description of the fish in your first email, I started to think Gold Gourami.

Especial after I read about, "two long feeler fins below her head", I thought that must be a Gourami, but then I said to myself, "No probably not, since I'm almost always wrong about these identifications by email."

But it does make sense, because Gouramis are Asian fish, and they are very hardy. Really they are very good aquarium fish.

Lyned, it was fun to exchange emails with you all the way to China and back again.

Please send me an email from time to time and report on the state of the aquarium hobby in China.

I'll post your emails here on these web pages. Good luck with your fish.

To All Involved With My Fish Bowl Kit Order,
 
I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that everyone survived the trip out to the midwest.  I was a bit nervous about the shipping and set up of the fish bowl, but all is well.
 
I was surprised to have received a burgundy betta instesd of a blue one, but you couldn't have selected a more beautiful fish.  He's a nice contrast to the ghost shrimp (all seven of them).
 
I do have a question about the plants.  They look a bit haggered and worn.  I'm hoping they will perk up in the bowl.  Will I have to trim the plants and/or the roots?  If so, when should this occur?  Also, what is the easiest way to remove the water required twice a week for the fish bowl maintenance?
 
I wasn't sure if I should feed the fish and shrimp upon arrival but I did.  There was very little food consumption.  Using your suggested feeding schedule, I will try some freeze dried worms in a couple of hours.
 
Thanks for your expertise and info on this experience!
 
Sincerely,
Michele W.
Livonia, MI
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Michelle, thank you for your email. We appreciate emails telling us that the fish, that we shipped, have arrived safely to their new homes.

We must have slipped up and sent you a burgundy Betta instead of the blue one you ordered. We try to send you the color the you request. Lucky for us you like the burgundy Betta.

You should have gotten an instruction sheet in the package with the fish that explains how to care for the animals, and I thought that instruction sheet advised you to wait a day before feeding the animals.

But I just read over that instruction sheet, and discovered it did not advise you to wait a day before feeding the fish. This was my oversight. I just revised the instruction sheet.

By the time you read this I hope your new fish are eating normally and getting a nice meal of BettaMin in the morning, and Freeze Dried Blood Worms in the evening.

Click here for more about feeding fish.

Trim the plants as you see fit, just be sure they do not completely block your Betta's access to the surface of the water.

I have a tiger dat and I purchased it almost a year ago and the fish has not grown at all. I feed it guppies, because that is the only type of food it will eat. I am wondering will this fish ever grow?
 
DAVE

Reply. Hello Dave, yes your Dat should be growing. In fact they grow to an alarmingly large size.

Perhaps your Dat needs more guppies or even small feeder comets.

This site is great and packed with wonderful information. I've been looking for several weeks now for detailed information on fish and the like and I have finally found it. I'm one of those owners that enjoys getting fish and learning everything about them there is to know.
 
I do have a few questions about the Ghost Shrimp though. I bought several for my varied tanks and some of them were carrying eggs. Do you have any idea how long their gestation is and what sort of care I would need to give to the babies? Can I see them when they are first born? Will the eggs still hatch after the parent dies? I also noticed that one of them got something that looks an awful lot like ich but I have been told since that they dont get ich.
 
None of the other fish in the tank got it but the puffer fish in yet another tank did get ich. I treated it for hte ich and it went away. I treated the ghost shrimp with aquarisol and nothing. It did spread from shrimp to shrimp within a matter of hours. I've also noticed many of the ghost shrimp in varied stores have hte same thing but no one knows what it is or how to treat it.
 
Would you know? Thank you for any information you can provide. I'll definitely be posting this link in our reef aquarium club so others will have access to this wonderful site.
 
Thank you again
Kassandra
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Kassandra, by luck I know a little bit about this malady that your Ghost Shrimp have.

It's not ick; it's a parasite, and it was studied a few years ago by a graduate student at Scripps Institute of Oceanography, which is just a few miles from out facility.

I believe the graduate student's name was Jiakun Song, and she talked to me a couple of times about this parasite, and even found it once on a few of the Ghost Shrimp that we had in an aquarium.

I can't remember the details, except there is no effective treatment for this parasite.

Jiakun was very interested in Ghost Shrimp and patiently explained to me about baby shrimps living on the underside of their mother's abdomen.

I was able to see the pink coloration of the eggs or babies on the mother's abdomen, but I have never actually seen the babies.

They are very small, even so they can be seen through a microscope, and I wish I had gone to visit Jiakun in her laboratory at Scripps and seen all the interesting stuff that she was investigating, while she studied the Ghost Shrimp.

bump on my fish
 
What's the suggested cure?
 
Dave and Joanne T.
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Dave and Joanne, what to do about your fish's bump depends on where the bump is located.

If it's on your fish's abdomen area, then it may be eggs in a female fish, or it may be food. Be sure you're feeding your fish the correct food.

For example, Goldfish do not have a stomach and cannot properly digest Tropical Fish food, so Goldfish must be fed food that is labeled for Goldfish.
