    I would say 4 auratus need a least a 55 gallon tank, and the smallest I would say for one by it self is a 30 gallon.
  • Anonymous - 2016-11-11
    Way, way too small. Not to say they wouldn't be alive in a 10 gallon, but that it is not recommended for them for good reasons. The store I work for suggests 29 gallons for just one of these.

so a little back story. I have a 265 gallon aquarium that i have 2 12 inch oscars a 10 inch and 7 inch jaguar cichlids that are a breeding pair a pacu and 6 silver dollars. well i wanted to add more fish so i set up my 30 gallon aquarium and put in there a Texas cichlid 2 lemon oscars a golden nugget pleco and a black ghost knife fish. well they were fine when i went to bed. i wake up this morning to find the Texas with the black ghost knife in his mouth swallowed about half way. so me being pissed off ( mind you the Texas is about 3-4 inches as well as the black ghost was too) because i got the Texas for free and the black ghost was 20 bucks. i took the Texas and threw him into the 265 gallon aquarium with the big guys basically survival of the fittest i suppose either he will survive or be dinner himself. MY other fish have all grown together since they were an inch big and have never once been fed live fish, so i assume they will not eat him maybe bully him out of their territory but not eat. ( its a new set up for the 265 so they really haven't got a territory down pack yet.) I may return him if he makes it through the work day till i get home tonight. i don't want to deal with more fish death due to eating each other. what do you guys think? if i kept it and the Texas got bigger do you think he will be an issue among the other tank mates?

    Nope..nevr do that frnd..both wil fight crazily
  • Wolfman - 2020-03-17
    You know everyone keeps saying blackbelt cichlids are moderately aggressive but on YouTube some people got 1 single male in a tank to make it like they are extremely aggressive. By when I say I'm putting a single male blackbelt cichlid in with a male (LARGEMOUTH BASS) then people want to say blackbelt cichlids are not that aggressive. WHICH IS IT.

    My dad got rid of mine. We only have one tank, so we had to combine mine, my dad's and my brother's. My red devil killed my dad's turquoise severum, and he was pissed.

I raise and show chinchillas and, with attention, they do get along with other animals. I have one who sits on the back of my Seal-Point Himalayan cat and they watch TV. A cat and a rodent. Who would guess. I have one chinchilla, "Buddy" featured on YouTube "Buddy the Chinchilla Playing Dead" who is a certified therapy animal and goes to nursing homes, hospices, schools, etc. They can be wonderful pets with enough attention.

    Hi Linda Clark,

    It's me, Rhonda Elliott, the owner of the Peace Corps chinchilla, Zoey, that you are caring for. I tried emailing you at your cascadechins email address but it didn't go through. So hopefully, I can connect with you this way. It's been about a year since I was last in the Seattle area, I really miss Zoey. I'm sorry I haven't been able to email you until now. I hope she is doing fine and treating you and your other chinchillas well. If you have taken any recent photos of her I would love to see them. I really want to see how she is doing. I miss her soooo much! I hope you are also doing well and staying healthy there. I have a little over another year here in the Philippines. I keep myself pretty busy here with work. Anyways, look forward to hearing from you. Take care!
  • Linda Clark - 2012-04-05

    I don't even know how I found this. I've only been on this website once. I have looked high and low for your e-mail and could not find it. I don't know how to soften this, but Zoey passed away a few months ago. I'll look at my calendar and let you know the date. Okay, I can now almost see the tears in your eyes. She was everyone's favorite the way she would lay unside down on her wheel. I don't know what happened. She was always very healthy and loved in my care. She was fine one day and the next I noticed she didn't come for her treat. I picked her up and held her in my arms. She was lethargic. I think she may have had a stroke (not uncommon in chins). She did not die alone, she was in my arms and I told her that her Mom (you) loved her so much. She went quickly and peacefully. I am so sorry. She was a great chin. Please e-mail me at My heart hurts sending you this e-mail. I will find any pictures I have of her and keep them for you or attempt to send them to you. Let me know what your e-mail is.
    I am so sorry!!!!! She definitely loved you.

    i love chinchillas
  • Caz - 2015-05-26
    Awww that is such a sad story. At least the little chin was well loved and had a good life.
  • Zoey - 2018-02-19
    Are chinchillas meant to be pets our are they captured?
  • Joshua Alderson McDonald - 2020-03-10
    Chinchillas are bred worldwide. I don't think there any captured chinchillas being kept as pets.

Cichlidophilic - 2020-03-08
I had a juvenile jaguar about 2-2 1/2 inch in a tank of about 145 liter with an Oscar, green terror, an ornate bichir, convict, panda parrot, 4 silver dollars and a pleco. I know I am going to land myself in trouble later when they grow up. Now the Oscar is dominant but no fighting had erupted so far except when the convict/ panda parrot couple is spawning. This is one of my six 145 liter tanks. All tanks are fully occupied and each has its own problem. Blame it on my over-enthusiasm in collecting cichlids.
