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.

Hello. How is everyone reading this? In a nutshell, we have a Pleco, who's been with us about 6-7 years. Also in the tank, are 2 Zebras. It was a happy family until I decided it would be a great idea to add 4 more fish to the party. So we bought 2 Angel fish and 2 Tetras. Turns out, my significant other was right (as usual). It was a very bad idea. Undenounced to me, the Pleco is very territorial and was perfectly happy without the added fish. Within 2 days, both Angels were dead. After some research, we found out that in distress and anger, if you will, the Pleco sucked the slime off the Angels in an attempt to kill them, which it did. It did the same to the other 2 Tetras. But unfortunately, and very much so, the new fish were diseased with either Ick and or Flukes (a type of worm). The Pleco is still alive but barely. I've taken pictures, close up, and we think its more than Ick, meaning it seems to have that as well as something else. Hundreds and hundreds of white spots, small and large, all over as well as what look like tiny worms, clear in color. There are lesions also and we see red. Maybe its blood, we don't know. The Plecos eyes are covered with this infection too, in, around and on its eyes, eyelids. We bough LifeGuard, 4 tablets per day and it doesn't seem to be working. We've also read to submerge the fish in salt water for about 40 seconds, then return it to its tank. Sea salt is preferred but table salt will suffice. At this point, we will try that later today, then give the fish a few more days. We have 1 more day of the LifeGuard tablets anyway. If that doesn't work, I'll dig a small grave in our backyard with a tiny grave marker. My significant other gave me a grin when I said I wanted to do that. I know its just a fish, and its actually his not mine, however, I have grown to become a bit attached to it and wanted to try and save it. Any ideas, suggestions, advice that may help would be appreciated. Course, I'd have to receive it fairly soon. :) :) Have a nice day and thank you in advance, Tracey

    hi i just got done saving my pleco that he is 14 years old . my husband brought goldfish at walmart they were sick and i didn't see it until it was to late . i remove all carbon filter and treated the tank with api fungus cure for 4 days and then melafix for one week and i did a lot of water changes. i also used aquarium salt half a cup . i have a 30 gal tank . i also did a total water change because i put ram shells in my tank last year and they took over. i think that didn't help my tank or fish i notice that George was not eating. when i clean the tank i place the fish in a 10 gallon tank for 6 hours with one teaspoon of table salt for each gallon of water. that was about half a cup and then i could small the salt and because pleco don't have scales i take half of the water out and replace it with fresh water they did great. the goldfish had black spots in him and they are gone . they are both doing great . i broght all my stuff from pet smart pet store in Kenosha. good luck i hope u fish is doing all right. i also would get a book call AQUARIUMS FOR DUMMIES . the best 20.00 dollars i spent.
