Wonderful website, shame I can't buy fish from you. Should be compulsory reading before setting up a fish tank. We have a killer in the tank. We have now lost a small Plec and a small red platy to attacks, but who is blame? We have a seventy five litre tank, with two internal, 3 stage filters, well airated, but with no plants at the moment.
 
The tank in it's current setup has been up for about 8 months. We have a bit of a Nitrate problem as our source water has quick a high concentration, but are slowly sorting this out by following the instructions by on your site with the assistance of a Nitragon ion exchange.
 
Apart from the water being a bit hard we do not seem to have any other problems with the water. We use Stress coat as a water conditioner and aquarium salt has been added to the water. Having problems keeping plants due to the nitrate causing algae problems. The tank contains, 1 kuhli loach, 4 clown loach( 3 - 4 inches), 3 green tiger barbs, 3 zebra danios, 6 rasbora harlequins, 7 glowlight tetra, 1 female red platy and a 6 inch sucking loach.
 
The danios and the tiger barbs seem to chase there own kind around the tank, but I have not seen them attack other fish. The rasboras and glowlights seem to stick together down one end of the tank. The platy seem quite happy swimming around. Since reading your site, we have found out that some of these fish are not really compatible with each other.
 
Any suggestions on improving the quality of life for our fish will be gratefully received.
 
Thanks in advance Gill H.

Reply. Hello Gill. Nitrate, NO3?, is usually not too great a problem. I would recommend you keep it low, but it is the nitrite, NO2?, and even worse the ammonia, NH3, that is very bad for fish. Click here to read little about the ammonia cycle in aquariums.

For many years I watched Neon Tetras, Glowlight Tetras, and Harlequin Rasboras in aquariums with Barbs, Platies, and other similar fish. The small Neons, Glowlights, and Rasboras never seemed to do well for a long period of time. I also noticed that they stayed near the ends or corners of the aquariums.

Then I began to keep them together in aquariums without Barbs, Platies, and other similar fish. The Neons, Glowlights, and Rasboras stayed in the middle of the aquarium and lived for a very long time. For example, some Neons lived over 10 years, which never happen when there were larger fish in their aquarium.

Hey!
 
    I love your web site! I am really into mollies and livebearers and I am going to be breeding them! I also just found a baby Danio in my 29 gallon tank (Well it came from the danios of course!) I am really greatful for your information about feeding baby fish now I know that it will be eating!
 
    Just a tad about the fish bowls! I hope you mean Anabantoids that you can put in fish bowls! Otherwise I highly recomend an airstone! Most fish have to breathe!
 
    I have a few questions about breeding Bettas! Can the Females be kept together? And do you think I may be spending all my money on bowls for the Males?
 
    I would really like if you could email me back! Just hit reply! Your site is so awesome I may never find it, beacause I may be to busy to look for it! I will be drooling over the Male Bettas! They are beautiful!
 
Thanx!

Reply. Hello Eireann. I appreciate your complimentary comment. Thank you.

You mentioned the word "Anabantoids" and you probably meant to correct my use of the word "Anabantids". I had checked in my gigantic dictionary, and it listed "Anabantid" but not "Anabantoid", so I used the word "Anabantids". But I have seen "Anabantoids" used elsewhere.

I do not recommend airstones for fish bowls. Instead I recommend keeping fish in fish bowls that can live in fish bowls without aeration. Bettas, White Clouds, Ghost Shrimp, and African Dwarf Frogs all do well in large fish Fish Bowls without aeration. Click here for more information about Fish Bowls.

Yes female Bettas are often kept together in the same aquarium. Click here to see a picture of several female Bettas living together in the same aquarium.

Why did my female have only three babys? Im only 9 years old im not a beginner a breeding guppies any more !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
 
 
Reply. Hello. Many times a female Guppy will have just a few babies, or perhaps your female Guppy actually release more babies, but the other fish in the aquarium ate her babies. Click here for more information about using a Net Breeder to protect female Mollies or Guppies and their babies.

I have a question regarding feeding my betta.  I just brought him home yesterday.  I picked up 2 types of food from the seller, they are Omega One-Betta Buffet Flakes and Hikari Betta Bio-Gold pellets.  He acts like he wants to eat.  However he will take the pellet into his mouth and blow it out.
 
He did the same thing with the flakes...he would rip off a piece and then blow it back out.  I cleaned the water of the food debris.  He is here in my office with me ... temp is around 74 degrees.  He seems to be adjusted to his new bowl, (not a peace lily thing) ...  Do you think he is ok and can you tell me why he blows his food back out?
 
Thanks,
Aundrea

I just added two Ramshorn Snails to my aquarium.  The pet store said that they would eat algae and left-over fish food and therefore did not require any additional food. Is this true or should I give them any thing else so that they will have a nutritional proper diet?

Reply. Hello Anne. Here is what I do. My 29 gallon aquarium has an Eclipse Aquarium Hood, and the filter siphon tube is at the bottom of the aquarium on the left-side at the rear. So I feed my fish at the upper right, which is as far from the end of the siphon tube as possible.

I feed several small pinches of food, and I wait after each pinch for the fish to eat all the food that I can see. After I finish there are still some tiny bits of food that settle to the bottom.

Then the fish and Ghost Shrimp begin to search the bottom for the bits of food. But I think they don't find them all, so there is a small amount of food left for the my Snails. The Snails seem to get enough food, and by eating the tiny bits of food, the snails help improve the water quality in my aquarium.

I think your Snails probably get enough food in your aquarium.

Hi Its Justin M. I have a couple questions about bettas and guppies first and for most will female guppies eat their fry just wondering also i heard if you fight your bettas and they are wounded you can put salt in the water to heal the wound if it is true let me know how much salt to put in dependig on the bowl size cause one time my betta khaseus got all tore up by some barbs and where the fins grew back they turned black
 
also is it against the law to fight bettas if so tell me cause im fixing to start raising bettas and the ones that try and hurt the females or eat eggs or just wont breed i was thinking about culling them out by fighting cause i frankly dont have enough room for a bunch of ... bettas only good ones or i thought about just selling them i dont know also i just want to say i love youre sight.
 
hope you can help me.
 
Sincerely,
Justin M
 
 
 
Reply. Hello again Justin. Adult Guppies will eat baby Guppies. We recommend you put your female Guppy in a Net Breeder, before she releases her babies. Usually she will not eat her babies for a period of about 48 hours, after she releases them, and the Net Breeder will protect the babies from the other fish. Click here to read more about the Net Breeder.

You say that your Betta has wounds, so I recommend that you give your Bettas the Recommended Treatment. Click here to read about the six steps of the Recommended Treatment, which includes adding 1-Tablespoon of Aquarium Salt to each 5-gallons of water. If your Betta is in a Fish Bowl with 1 gallon of water, add 1/5 of a Tablespoon of Aquarium Salt to your Fish Bowl.

Yes I think it is illegal to fight Bettas in all of the states in the U.S., and in our culture such laws are appropriate, because most people think it is very cruel to needlessly have Bettas fight to the death or to be badly injured in a fight with another Betta. In our culture we enjoy taking good care of our animals.
