I would like to order some fancie guppies and I was wondering if I could send in a money order, insted of using a creadit card, because I'm only 16 (to young for a credit card) If so how would I go about it? Would I e-mail you my order, than send a money order in the mail? Then you would ship my order to me? If so how much would shiping and handaling be to mail some fish to Spring Lake (Muskegon is close and it's on most maps, if that helps), Michigan? ...
 
Thanks
Martha
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Martha, First let me say that, since you are less than 18 years old, we strongly encourage you to discuss your fish ordering plans and your email to us with your parents.

If they give you permission to proceed, then email us your fish order. You can add up the costs, and we will check your figures. When we agree on the amount, you should go to the post office and buy a postal money order for the amount of your order.

The post office will charge you an additional fee, which I think is under $1.00, for the postal money order. Write "AquariumFish.net" in the space on the postal money order, and mail that postal money order to us at our address, which is at a link at the bottom of each page on our web site.

When we've gotten your emailed order and your mailed postal money order, we will email you notification of the shipping date and the approximate time and date of arrival.

i cant seem to get the video of the mollies swimming on my computer. i remember seeing it before so im not sure whats up with it. ive included the URL of the page that the movie clip is on.

I was told that you could keep bettas, white clouds, mollies and guppies all in a pond if they werent with other fish. I understand that they could not stay in the water through the winter, and I should add that my pond is heated, the average temperature is about 80 degrees.
 
If I took all the fish inside for the winter, do you think they would do well? I am really more concerned that they would live a good life rather than that they would survive. Thank you very much, and congratulations, your site is the best Ive looked at in a long time.

Reply. Hello Kayleigh. Thank you for reporting the bad link to the video of the Black Lyre Tail Molly. I fixed it. Click here now to see it.

I'm enthusiastic about your plans to keep some fish outdoors in your pond. With the energy crisis here in California we wouldn't want to heat our ponds though.

I have kept Cichlids, Killifish, Bettas, White Clouds, and lots of Livebearers outdoors in ponds during the warm months. Of course I didn't keep the Cichlids with the other fish in the same ponds.

One key to succeeding is to move your fish outdoors, when the temperature of the water in your aquarium is about the same as the temperature of the water in your pond. I've tried to keep the temperature within 2 degrees F. So when the temperature of the water in my pond gets up to 70 degrees and the temperature in my aquarium is 72 degrees, I can move some of my fish into the pond. Click here see my little pond in a barrel.

Last year I had some White Clouds in my outdoor pond, and they did great down to 55 degrees F., but at 50 degrees it got too cold for them, and I moved them back indoors. Click here to read more about that adventure and about my White Clouds.

Your livebearers wouldn't survive down to 50 degrees like my White Clouds did. You'll need to bring them back inside at about 70 degrees.

One caution, your Livebearers will grow to be a lot bigger in your pond, and they will reproduce. So you will probably have a lot more fish to bring back indoors than you put in the pond. Of course this will depend on a lot of factors, but it is something to think about.

Another caution, some people have reported problems with fish eating birds. But it has never been a problem in my ponds, and there are some gentle ways to deal with the birds. There could also be problems with other animals, but there are probably good ways to deal with those animals too.

I appreciate your complimentary comment. Thank you.

I didn't find anything wrong with you site, but I was interested in any info you have on fresh water sting rays. I could not find any on your site.
 
 
 
Reply. Hello. We have a page about Fresh Water Sting Rays. Click here now to go to our Search Page and enter the phrase "Fresh Water Sting Ray" with or without the quote marks (" ") it works the same.

I just went to the Search Page and entered "Fresh Water Sting Ray". After a few minutes there was a huge list of links labeled "Document Title". Click here to go to the first link in that list, where there is a list of all the videos on this web site, and you'll see that the second video on the list is a link that is titled "Fresh Water Sting Rays".

Click here now to follow that link and see the page in this web site with information, a picture, and the video of Fresh Water Sting Rays. Incidentally we do not sell Fresh Water Sting Rays because they are illegal to import, own, or sell in the State of California, and our facilities are in San Diego, California.

At this web site, AquariumFish.net, you can buy fish, and you can get information about fish. Most of the fish shown are fish that we sell and can provide good information about. But a few of the fish we sell, we don't have much information about yet, and the Fresh Water Sting Rays are an example of a fish that we do not sell, but we do have information about.

I'm glad you didn't find anything wrong with our web site.

hi
 
i was browsing for more information on betta when i came across your site. i read through the various sections that are of interest to me and i must agree with most of the feedbacks on your site: your site is very informative indeed, and very generous on advice.
 
i looked through your site but couldn't find the answer i need so here are my questions, regarding betta fish.
 
i have a betta fish and since he is so colourful, i assume he is a "male". he is deep red in colour with iridescent sky blue. actually i didn't start out with betta fish. i actually started out with a lotus "pond". i wanted to plant lotus and so i did. two round earthen ware pots , each about 1 feet or  1 1/2 feet in diameter.
 
when i first started seedling the lotus (from lotus seeds), i had a problem with mosquitoes larvaes. you see, i live in malaysia, and ours is a tropical climate, more like equatorial climate. it is either sunny the whole day or sunny half day with rain/thunderstorm for the rest of the day. this is for the whole year. average temp is around 24C-28C (don't know the conversion to farenheit). because of this, we have an abundance of insect life, one of which is mosquitoes. since it is against our local laws to be breeding mosquitoes (intentionally or unintentionally, mosquitoes lay eggs in containers of still water), from the beginning, i decided to get some fish as a means of biological control of the mosquitoes eggs problems. i asked around and they recommended the betta fish, well known for its "durability" in situation of dirty, murky water with little oxygen. this sounded great to me as my main intention is to keep lotus, not fish.
 
after my lotus plants had sprouted and grew for about two weeks, i bought a betta fish. cute little guy, deep red shot with iridescent sky blue. by the time, i put him into the lotus "pond", the pond water had aged for about 3 weeks already. the usual ecosystem in the pond: a bit of algae, a fine film of algae and other microrganism in the water, some elodea for making oxygen in the water, and of course my lotus plants. they cover about 40-50% of the surface of the water. i read this is good because they provide shade from the sun.
 
i noticed that my betta like the sun, when i put him into the lotus pond, he was happy and he kept swimming around, flashing his tail, showing off. he was curious and he would explored every inch of his new home. prior to this, i put him in a 1.5 gallon fish bowl and he liked it only when i put the bowl at the porch, not under direct sunlight but still get sunlight. he loved this the best. and he grew to be able to recognise me when i called to him. he loved to come up to the surface to investigate whenever i go near.
 
today marks the 4th day he is in his new home. he had no problem adjusting to his new home except for the fact that the edges of his tail and fins looked slightly "black", either "edged in black" or looked "burnt"!! but his iridescent sky blue colours showed up only after i gave him some sunlight.
 
however today, something happened. it was raining this morning , not heavy, consistent small drizzle. i checked on him twice, within 45 mins apart each time. after the second time, i went in and then about 30 mins later, i went to check on him, just in case, his pond overflowed and he got washed out. and he did get out!! i was frantic. i searched for a good 10 mins for him before i found him behind some flower pots nearby. how he get there in that direction, i don't know. but i caught him and put him back into his pond.
 
he didn't swim much and he kept his pectoral fins closed to his side, never opening them. i thought they were torn off when i tried to recaptured him. later on, he used his pectoral fins but only the right side, not the left side. i thought this was strange. he kept mostly to the bottom of the pond, and all his tails and fins drooped!! i was alarmed but there was nothing else i can do for him besides keeping watch on him. only after 3 hrs, did he swim around and then, mostly at the bottom, and he didn't seem to use his pectoral fins that much. prior to this, he was swimming around, flashing his tails and fins and whatever. this time, he seemed moody and "fearful". that is how i describe. prior to this, he loved to swim round, here and there, over that stem, under that aquatic plant, but after that "incident", he kept mostly at the bottom, occasionally moving around.
 
i left him alone and went to tend to another "pond" in which i kept a group of fish, called "ikan longkang" in our malay language but literal translation means "drain fish". this is another type of fish which is supposed to be of hardy constitution. word has it that they could live in almost any type of water condition and not die!  however my group of "drain fish" kept dying within 24 hrs!!  thinking that this "pond" water is not right, since it only aged for 3 days, i transferred one of this "fish" to the betta's pond.
 
wow! i thought the betta was almost dead but he flared up and chased this poor little fish around until i managed to get the little fish out. it was only then i saw that his pectoral fins are intact but he seemed to favour the left side.
 
is he wounded? or is he just still under "shocked"?? my friend said that due to his time out of the water, he could have suffered structural damage to his body since he no longer has water to support his weight. is this true?
 
now it is almost midnight, almost 12 hrs since the incident this morning. i checked on him just now and he really came up to the surface to "Greet" me. really, you have to see this to believe it. but then he went back down below and just stayed in one spot.
 
i am worried. is he sick?? why is the edges of his tail and fins "ragged" and looked "burnt"??? i believe he came to me in this condition just that i didn't notice it. he mostly swam around with tail and fins dropping, all bunched up together, until i placed a mirror outside his fish bowl. it was only then i get to see his tails and fins flared up and i saw the ragged edge.
 
what can i do to "Bring" him around back to his usual curious cheerful self? also, after the episode where he chased the other fish, can i assume he is not sociable and very territorial? i thought of introducing a female betta fish as a company for him but now i'm having second thought.
 
also, second query (yes my first query is long-winded, with lots of side story). this "longkang fish" or "drain fish". they're smallish, the male being smaller than the female. the males are very colourful, almost like the male guppies except that this fish doesn't have a large flowing fan-shaped tail.
 
do you know what is the actual name of this fish?
 
hope you will reply. as i may not be free to check your website all the time, would you mind replying directly to my email address?
 
thanks

Reply. Hello Ashley. Thank you for your wonderful email that came all the way from Malaysia!

Your Betta is lucky you found him just in time to return him to your pond. There is no way to tell what may be wrong with him. You'll need to watch him and report back to us on what else you see. We hope he just bruised and scraped, and that he will quickly recover.

I don't recognize the names "longkang fish" or "drain fish", so I can't help you identify the fish. But you make them sound very interesting. We would love to see some pictures of them, and pictures of you in your garden.

Thank you again for sending us a very interesting email.
