I have two fantail fish( I got them both from the same place on the same day) When I got them, they were the same size a year and a 1/2 later and the one fish is tiny and is floating up it stays on its back. The other fish is really fat it doesn't sink to the bottom I know that's really bad, I tried to separate them in the tank, but it was unsuccessful I don't know what to do I have been moderating them daily I'm not sure what to do.

I have 2 black moor gold fish. ONe of them is sick. He is about 10 years old. he has a couple of tumor like growths on his body and his eyes are greyish and cloudy. He has lost his balance and is upside down a lot. Now he's just laying on the bottom of the tank. I can get him to swim around if I gently prod him. I started treating the water with an all in one bacteria solution yesterday. Has anyone seen this kind of thing? I'm really attached to this little guy and wish I could help him.

I bought an orange fantail goldfish and was able to keep it alive in a medium size glass fishbowl without filter and bubbles for a couple months I changed the water once a week and put in water dechlorinating chemical. I noticed that the goldfish was growing and got a five galllon tank for it and some bubbles. I got one more goldfish to keep it company and still changed the water once a week. I lost both goldfish after one year after I moved. After I changed the water, cleaned the tank, and put in the dechlorinating chemical, one fish died than the other. I have not been successful with goldfish since.

    To treat the water for chlorine is one thing, but that does not deal with monochloramine or chloramine found in many city waters. A dechlorination chemical does not remove chloramine from the water. So basically you are giving the fish a chlorinated water to live in, which then can not tolerate. That's why they are dying. The differnce between the two chemicals is chlorine is a short term solution whereas chloramine is a long term solution for dealing with bacteria in the water. Chlorine poured into a bucket/ pail or drum from a garden hose can pretty much off gas the chlorine in a hour or two without treatment if the water is constantly stirred, whereas chloramine will remain active chlorine in the water for upwards of a month. So you need to buy a chemical specifically for chloramine. If not you are giving your fish a chlorine bath. If you are going to test your tap water from the city your test equipment must specifically test for chloramine, a chlorine test will not show or test chloramine levels.

    Since your trouble started after you moved, I suspect you have a problem with your new water source. Do you have a freshwater master test kit? It is helpful to know the ph and levels of ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate in your source water before you add it to your aquarium.

Would it be ok to keep a FeatherFin Squeaker in a 55 gallon tall tank with 1 Yoyo loach (I lost the rest to skinny disease), 1 Banjo Catfish, 3 Johanni Cichlids, 1 Synodontis Nigritis, and 1 Upside down cat. Could i get a Featherfin squeaker, and two Peacock eels as well??? Thanks! -???

    I'd upgrade to a 75 Gal tank before adding anymore bottom/mid dwelling species. also, I suggest getting half-banded spiny eels instead of Peacock eels since while both are not true eels (they are both spiny eels) peacock eels tend to be territorial but half-banded spiny eels don't mind the company of others of the same species. (Also, peacock eels can reach lengths up to one and a half feet long while half-banded spiny eels get 7.9 inches long. both have a diet consisting of only freshly frozen meaty foods and live foods (freshly dead ghost shrimp are fine too), they will not eat flake foods and rarely will eat processed foods like wafers and pellets (most will not though).They both REQUIRE sand or very fine gravel (sand with a slightly bigger particle size) due to their delicate skin (technically they have extremely small scales that are very delicate and sensitive) and their habit to bury themselves when they are stressed/feel threatened or are hiding from the light but are too lazy to find cover. featherfin squeakers (as well as banjo catfish, corydoras catfish,and some other catfish like: those in the syndontis family which featherfin squeakers and upside-down catfish are a part of) also do much, much better in sand (the ones I listed technically require it to be at their healthiest). So what i'm basically trying to say is, upgrade to a 75 gal (even bigger if you want more fish) then maybe get a featherfin squeaker and 2-5 half-banded spiny eels.

I found this website and enjoyed your information on the Striped Raphael Catfish so I thought I would submit a comment. I no longer have a receipt of purchase but a long-ago boyfriend found 2 of these cute bottom feeders at a pet store and brought them home for my tank. The smaller one lived 15 years and at some point I changed my 29-gallon (long) tank to a 10-gallon one to accommodate two remaining fish until their end. The store is long gone, as is the boyfriend. Family members have since passed and I have moved (with my catfish) several times. A long-time buddy remembers visiting my tank years ago. Every so often, she and other acquaintances ask me, 'Do you still have THAT fish?' Yes, I do; just the one. 41 years later, 'Catnafish' and I continue to get together for regular aquarium water changes as I wonder, at age 66, who will live longer? Just wanted to share this with you and your readers.

    Greetings, Dillon. I realize you came across my comment awhile back but I don't stop on this site often and here I am responding months later. I still have 'Catnafish,' my striped Raphael catfish. Although I don't turn the calendar page on any particular date, I have her from age 25. I am now 70 so here in 2020, she's 45. She is very hardy and has handled extreme tank situations. I have no other fish. I've so enjoyed many fish during my hobby adventure and many equipment changes during the years but when she goes, the tank will be shut down. She's been one of my favorite aquarium tenants and, of course, the longest lasting. I highly recommend this hardy catfish character especially for the cute factor. To all fish hobbyists reading this site and learning the hobby, I say 'Enjoy your hobby adventure!'

    Really cool to see others with long-lived Raphael catfish. I have a family member who's Raphael Catfish turned 50 this year.
  • Dillon - 2019-10-10
    So this fish is 44 years old?
  • Dillon - 2019-10-10
    So you have had this "Catnafish" for 44 years now? I'm sure that it was already a year or so old when you got it.

    I'm sorry my comment read 'anonymous.' I was sure I placed my name in the proper blocks. (sheesh) (Eydie)
  • Eydie A Reed - 2019-07-13
    I'm sorry, Bertrand, I just decided to come back to this site and noticed your note. Yes, "Catnafish" is still with me. She's a hardy one, for sure. Thanks for asking.
  • Eydie A Reed - 2019-07-14
    Yes, Bertrand, my catfish is still alive. Yesterday, we experienced a leaky aquarium and quickly set up another tank. Hopefully, she will continue to thrive. Thanks for asking.
  • Bertrand Sant - 2019-02-08
    Hi Eydie! is the catfish still alive today?🤗
  • EYDIE - 2020-12-19
    Jan, that's so cool! Who would imagine that a tropical fish in a home environment could live as long as this. Let's check in from time-to-time and see how our hardy fish are thriving. (Eydie)
