I have a 125 gallon tank and before getting a Red Devil I had a large Oscar(12in) large algae eater(14in)3 full grown Jack Dempsey.Got him from Petsmart. When I introduced my Red Devil to the tank(about 7 months ago) he was somewhat small, so I had to make alot of hiding places for him. As he grew, so did he aggressiveness. He killed my 2 Jack Dempsey and the last one is hanging on to his life. I have seperated him so he can heal. He had completely taken his tail off. I am still admazed how he is still alive. I love my Red Devil aka Leader. Now I have just the algae,oscar,pacu and a wounded jack dempsey. Although he has caused alot of commotion I wouldn't trade him for the world. Although I had two loses, I still wouldn't trade him for the world.

  • Samantha - 2019-04-29
    I agree I love my Red Devils . My first one died because of my daughter but this new one is still amazing even though he is a boy and the female is small compared to my last one and they won’t let me pet them like my old one but there just so beautiful . Couldn’t imagine going back to multiple little African chiclids vs my beautiful big red devil . There names are cruise and Penelope lol

I have a Dwarf Gourami pair. The male will chase the female a bit but otherwise they are fine together. The male is definently quite the show, he chases everything that passes the tank and attacks me when I clean it. He spits water at me when he builds a bubble nest and has jumped out of the tank on to the floor trying to get me! He is one lively little fella.

I've had six clown loaches for over six years now in a 70 gallon tank, but just in the past two weeks they all are obviously ill, three weeks after I introduced some newly purchased tetras. While I can't make out classic ich spots, I have started malachite green treatment, although two of the loaches already look very bad. Are there other diseases that so selectively affect loaches? All the rest of the tank inhabitants look and act normal.

I have bought 2 bgkf and I have a 125 gallon tank. Both fish have died within a day of me buying them. I have 2 red tips a black shark and a rainbow shark. My water always tests fine pH is 7.0. I am confused and disappointed. I don't know what's causing the fish to die. Any help would be nice.

    Could be the place you got them from. How did you acclimate them to the tank? They stress very easy so a slow acclimation is best.
  • Anonymous - 2012-05-11
    I allowed the bag to float for 15 minutes and than released them into the tank. They were active and found a hiding place. Next morning they were fine and a couple hrs later they died.
  • lauren - 2012-07-19
    Try buying them from a different place.
  • Fred - 2012-09-01
    Maybe cause there was two of them, they couldn't really identify anything cause they were both sending electrical waves that kept intercepting the others.

    i had gotten my first black ghost knife from petsmart on sale for 8.60 somethin like that anyway he died two days later also bought other fish and put them all togather i noticed an outbreak of ick so i treated with ick- out he must have died from that i took him and the others to be replaced and got a big run around like they didnt want to exchange for another id wasnt takin no for the answer now two days ago once i brought new one home along with others i exchanged but did not put them in the same tank since im battling ick from the outbreak from the fish i brought home that also killed my few others i had in the tank a few months before i bought the black knife and others from petsmart anyway i put the newer fish in i exchanged in a qaurintene tank 20 gallon just untill the ich clears from my 30 when i put him and the other fish in the qaurintene tank i noticed white spots on them so i put ick out in right away and the next day spots seemed to be almost gone but i lost the ghost knife , i geuss ill be takin him back and exchanging him im sure with alot of disagreeing i did call next morning to petsmart in benton harbor, mi and told them about the ick and they probley have it the guy said he diddnt but i know they do but he told me to pick up some thing called ick-attack by kordon wich cost 11.00 so before i exchange themim makin sure the ick is gone but other then that can someone please e-mail me on what i can do better or whatnot so i can enjoy the black ghost knife for a long time my e-mail is thanks and im sure ill get grief from petsmart takin back the ghost knife for the second time within 3 weeks but oh well its not my fault for the outbreak they will just have to replace him, so here is my story of my losses hopefuly no more after this woud be nice so i geuss im not the only one out here that has lost a ghost knife but maybe two wich i believe it the stores of there non knowledge of ick in there tanks that customers dont kow about or them for that matter, peggy

    I bought my first Black Ghost fish about a month ago from Petsmart and I fell in love, however about 2 weeks later I could not find it in the tank. I have a 150 gallon tank and I looked everywhere in the tank and cold not find it. No remains indicating he was dead. I just recently bought 2 more less than a week ago and they seem fine. You do have to watch the fish you get from Petsmart. I suggest not purchasing anytime from Thursday thru Tuesday as they get a new shipment in on Thursday and therefore you run the risk of disease and the fish being stressed out from the shipment. I experienced 2 bouts of ick from my fish there, before I realized it was best to have a quarantine tank set up for new fish and not to buy fish when they first get them in. I did however by my ghost fish 2 days later only because they don't keep them more than 2 days in stock due to the high demand. Thankfully my 2 have survived for 5 days today. Good luck!!

    Ick is due to stress. All fish carry the ick virus, it's when they are stressed it comes out. It's like a common cold for us. Immune system is down bam we get sick. To blame it on pet stores is ridiculous. It could have been the stress from being transported to your tank,or the stress of being shipped to the store. you should be checking the fish out before you purchase it anyways, never rely on someone else even if they claim to be 'experts.' When medicating you should use half the dosage because they are a scaleless fish they cannot handle a full dose.

    White spot is not carried by all fish! A parasite, ichthyophthirius multifilliis, it comes on plants, fish that have it, gravel or water! It's not in every fish!
  • kye turnbull - 2013-04-04
    Although you are right about the scaleless dosing.

  • A guy - 2018-06-26
    BGK fish does not go well with sharks. They are semi agressive and they always fight. They are probably too stressed, seeing that there were sharks in the tank which caused them to die
