Thanks ... for all  the help and knowledge he gave to us , in building our hobby to a great success. We couldn't have done it without him. And Thanks to Nevin for having the best fish, healthy and beautiful  and every order is sent with great care.
 
I would recommend to anyone who loves fish, To buy there fish from you guys. Just wanted you to see two of our 21 tanks. These our two of our med. tanks. I have to straighten up the big tanks before I let anyone see them. To many breeding huts right now, they look cluttered. We have babies by the tons right now.
 
Have a wonderful day,
Sue from Wisconsin

It seems that all the HOB filters I see have suction tubes that only reach a few inches down into the tank.  Wouldn't it make more sense and be a much better cleaner if it went down to the bottom where the solid waste sits?  Do you think it would help the filter work better by extending the tube down to the bottom?
 
 
 
Reply. Hello. Yes the siphon tube should extend to the bottom of the aquarium to draw the water from the bottom of the aquarium up to the surface, and most new Hang on the Back (HOB) type filters include an extra piece of tubing with instructions to cut that extra piece of tubing, and use it to extend the siphon tube to the bottom of the aquarium.

I got my first fishtank 2 weeks ago and realized I knew nothing about freshwater fish, other than information relevant to saltwater fish (my husband has a 100-gallon saltwater.
 
I learned more from you website than 2 complex fish magazines and a dozen other websites. Keeping the language simple is your biggest strength, and I will be back. PS send me a catalog if you have one!

Hello! You have a wonderful site! I have been researching fish for my new aquarium for a few months. I thought you would like to know that your site was the most helpful in deciding which fish would be compatible.
 
I have a 72 gallon bowfront aquarium that has been set up for 1 week. I'm using a canister filter but was wondering about the biowheel. Is the canister enough?
 
I do not have any fish yet. I'm thinking of getting 6 Angels, 3 Great Danios, 6 Rainbows, 5 Gouarami, & 4 Clown Loaches.
 
Can you forsee any problems with this combination? Also, does it matter in what order I introduce these species into my tank?
 
Thanks for your help!
Wendy
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Wendy. Thank you for your complimentary comment about this web site.

Canister filters are antiques. They are expensive to buy, difficult to maintain and to keep clean, and they do not contain as much oxygen as a filter with a BIO-Wheel. We strongly recommend filters with BIO-Wheels. Click here to read more about why BIO-Wheels are essential.

I recommend that you get two Penguin 330 filters for your Aquarium. Go back to the store, where you bought your canister filter, and ask if you can exchange it for the Penguin 330 Filters. You won't need the canister filter, if you get the Penguins.

The fish you have chosen are compatible, but all Danios and the Clown Loaches should be kept in groups with at least six fish of that species.

The Great Danios are probably what we call Giant Danios. I would recommend that you get at least Zebra Danios instead. Giant Danios might irritate your Angelfish, and the Zebra Danios probably won't. Click here for more information about Danios.

You also listed five Gouramis, but did not say which type of Gourami. I would recommend Dwarf Gouramis. There are several color varieties. Most people prefer to keep just the males, because the females have less color. Click here for more information about Dwarf Gouramis including pictures of males and a female.

Angelfish and Clown Loaches do not always do well in a new aquarium. Danios usually do very well in a new aquarium, and we recommend Danios as the first fish in a new Warm Water Aquarium. Click here for more about Warm Water Aquariums including information about getting one started.

First off, your website is quite informative and interesting.  You seem to know a lot of the answers where fish are concerned.
 
Here's my question: I have a 35 gallon hexagon aquarium with the Emperor 280 filter system.  I'm interested in the spectacular female betas pictured at your website and the adorable ghost shrimp for a little cleanup.
 
How many would you recommend of each for an aquarium this size?  Also, are they both hardy aquarium critters and will they get along like it says at your website?
 
Thanks a bunch,
Tammy
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Tammy. We're glad to read that you are making good use of the information about fish on this website.

Click here to see a picture of Brooke's six-gallon Eclipse aquarium with twelve female Bettas. So your 35-gallon aquarium could probably hold even more, but I doubt you'd want more than twelve. Your aquarium could also hold at least twelve Ghost Shrimp.

Both Ghost Shrimp and Female Bettas are hardy fish and are compatible with each other. Click here for more information of Ghost Shrimp including a video and a picture.

Hi,
 
My name is Matt and I have had fish practically ever since I can remember. However, since I have started graduate school, I have been unable to have or care for fish.   I am planning on taking it up again slowly, as my money permits, so I have been doing research here on the net.  I've read about the Bio Wheels and it seems to be the way to go.  I have several questions/comments.  First, is it cheaper to buy a filter from Wal-Mart and then buy the parts to make it into a "BIO-wheel" filter?   And if so, how much cheaper?   I haven't been able to find the price list for the needed parts and I don't have either a Wal-mart or a Pet-smart in my area (about 60 miles to get to them).   I figure if the price is comparable, I'll just go with the Bio Wheel from Pet-smart.
 
My second question/comment is this; why is it that your company doesn't sell aquarium hardware such as the biowheels or the biowheel replacement parts needed to make such modifications. It seems to make sense that people would buy such parts/supplies while also purchasing fish to save on shipping costs.
 
Finally, before I go, I want to say that I have found your site very informative.   Even though my family has quite a bit of experience with fish and aquariums, I have learned very much in the past few days I've spent reading at your sight.   I guess I knew and understood what is now that "old ways" of doing things.  However, I feel confident that my future aquariums will be more successful and more enjoyable.  I also think it is great that I can now get detailed information on care for specific fish.  In times past, I have found such information hard to get and often harder to trust (sometimes due to ignorance of pet store staff and sometimes due to the urge to make a sale).
 
Thanks for your time, energy and efforts to inform us all,

Reply. Hello Matt and thank you for your complimentary comments. We are always glad to read that what we write is helping someone.

If I were buying a filter for one of my aquariums, I would buy a Penguin Filter. They come with a BIO-Wheel. Wal-Mart does not sell Penguin Filters, they sell AquaTech Filters, which are very similar to Penguins, but the AquaTech filters do not have BIO-Wheels, and BIO-Wheels are essential.

Click here to read more about BIO-Wheels.

I think it is a little bit less expensive to buy an AquaTech Filter at Wal-Mart and add the BIO-Wheel, but surely it would not pay for your time. If I already had an AquaTech Filter, I'd try to find the parts and add a BIO-Wheel. But if I were buying a new filter for my aquarium, I'd buy a Penguin Filter.

We don't sell any equipment or parts at AquariumFish.net, except the Fish Bowl Kit. Click here for more information about that kit.

We are fish-people, and we concentrate on the many thousands of fish and hundreds of aquariums in our facility. We feel that selling equipment would be a distraction, and we would not be able to do as good a job with the fish, if we also sold equipment.

Thanks again for your complimentary comments about AquariumFish.net.

hi there i just happened across you site tonight and think it has been the most helpfull to me so far .. i do have a few questions.
 
i have in the past purchased freshwater flounders but have had no luck with them, i cant seem to find any information on raising them. what kinds of food water type, how big they get, compatability.etc.
 
I was also told that flounders are ok to have in a freshwater tank when they are small but you must put them in saltwater when they are bigger .. (is that true?)
 
i have both freshwater and saltwater tanks. and have tried them in both . they seemed to be ok in the saltwater tank but they got eaten before i could tell for sure (lasted about a week). any info would be very helpfull.
 
Thank you,  
Doreen
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Doreen. I'm glad you find AquariumFish.net to be helpful. Freshwater Flounders do best with some Aquarium Salt in their water. Click here for more information about Aquarium Salt.

Freshwater Flounders can adapt to freshwater, when they are small or large. I had two for a long time in my tank in total freshwater.

They do best with the smaller grain sand, not the larger gravel that most stores sell. They love too eat live foods like brine shrimp and Live Black Worms. They can grow up to 2" to 3" in most tanks, but in the wild they can grow to be 5" to 6".

 
 
picture of a Freshwater Flounder taken at AquariumFish.net.   Here is a picture I took in one of the aquariums at AquariumFish.net. This picture shows a nice Freshwater Flounder about 2" long and in excellent condition. If you look closely, you can see it's two dark eyes near the bottom left of the picture.
 
 
Freshwater Flounders are not raised by fish breeders but are collected in the wild mostly from areas with brackish water, and they seem to blend well with most community fishes. Click here for more information about Brackish Water Fish.

We hope this information helps you.
