We have two large iridescent sharks we are looking to find another home for. Our tank is too small and they are very large. Do you have a big tank? Do you know they can grow 3-4 feet? Where are you located?

So I purchased a peacock eel, and after reading some posts, mine is nothing like any of the others. He/she does not bury himself/herself in the rocks, and I have not seen it eat anything either. Any ideas??????

    What foods are you using and what time of day?

    I feed it freeze dried bloodworms once in the morning. Also it is all over the tank like it is looking for something. It is very active all the time. Just now I found it 'playing' in the bubbles. Is this wierd???

    Try feeding it frozen blood worms, I know it sounds weird since it won't eat the freeze dried ones. But I have peacock eels in both my tanks and neither one likes the freeze dried ones but will eat the frozen ones. Take a cube of frozen blood worms and used some warm water to break them apart and then put some in the tank. That is my best advice.

    No, it's not weird that your eel plays in the bubbles. I'm not sure what joy they get out of doing it, but mine does that all the time.

    My eel loves blackworms and when we can't get blackworms we dig some worms in the garden and put them through a wet roll oat mixture for a day .

    Do frozen blood worms. Pet smart has them ($6 for 30 cubes ) I have a 10” peacock eel and he loves them. The other fish will feed on them as well. I prefer to thaw a couple of the cubes in water and then put them in the tank once a night, Otherwise they tend to get stuck to the filter inlet tubes if they thaw in the tank. He took a little while to acclimate to the tank, but since then hes been extremely alive at feeding time as soon as the worms hit the water. Hope this helps.

I seems like most people have issues trying to get these guys to eat. I have tried frozen tubiflex worms, shrimp pellets and minnows. I have not tried any freeze dried food such as bloodworms. One thing that I do know is that my PEACOCK EEL loves "EARTHWORMS"! Trust Me! Mine will feed right out of my hand and will beg like a puppy dog. I hold the worm with a pair of tweezers as it hits it with its lighting strike.....TRY THE EARTHWORMS!

Mine is currently 35 years old and I have another that is 26. They are both in the same 90 gallon tank. They live peacefully with my torpedo barbs and my blue & rainbows.

I have had my Cichlid for around 6 months and it has been alone the whole time but today I found babies swimming around. Anyone have an explanation?

    You most defiantly had a female and she was already holding fry or eggs when you got her. Cichlids are Mouth brooders which means they hold their young in their mouth for a few weeks till the young are old enough to be on their own.

    I have a 75 gallon mixed Cichlid tank. Have one male and two female Kenyis. The male is bright yellow and the Tank Boss...moves sand and rocks after every water change. So I noticed one of the females kept hiding and didn't eat for a while. Now she is out eating and swimming around. I have now discovered at least two baby Kenyi hiding in the sand caves under the rocks. Any advice on how to keep them safe until I have time to get a new tank? (They are so cute!)

    Just to let everyone know, i did successfully trim my Amazon Puffer's teeth. It's funny, they were shy of me before i did it and now they are always at the front of the tank when i look at them. It's like we've bonded lol

    Hello. If you add live purple rock they will trim their teeth by chewing on live rock. Hope this helps.
