I just got my balloons today. They are by far my favorite fish and I have been wanting them for a long long time. They are quite shy right now obviously and hiding in a corner.

These fish can live very very long. Regular kissers can live over 20 years. I have heard of someone with a pair that are 15/16" and 20/21 years old. The ballons are supposed to be smaller, maxing at around 8" or so. A large tank of at least 40g is needed. They are very intelligent fish and I'm looking forward getting to know mine better.

Hi I have a blue acara every time I put my hand in his tank he violently bites me just wondering if thus is the norm or it's unusual for them to do this he lives in a 30 gallon tank with other chiclids and comunity fish ?

    It sounds like he is very territorial. He is possibly feeling like there is a constant need to defend his space due to the other cichlids in the tank, and it may be that there is not enough space or hiding places for everyone. I would keep an eye on him, because a constantly high level of territorial behavior can be very stressful to the fish, and may cause illness.

    Hi Im very intrested ti here about your 30 gallon tank as I have just set up similar currently have 2 firemouth and was thinking off adding a pair of acara or festival but unsure if would be overstocking territorial wise any help or suggestions appreciated
  • Heidi - 2017-01-05
    Wow I have the opposite. My acara plays with me and his best buddy is one of the pea puffers in the tank. In a 30 gallon tank I only have him with two peas a bushy nose placo and a couple florescent black skirts and 2 cardinals. He loves his little buddies. I have a few videos of him playing with me. It is a planted tank and he hates the syphon though.

    I am a big fan of Blue Acara, and I have had them on and off for about 25 years. Blues are very docile... normally. On occasion I have had some aggressiveness towards me and his/her tankmates. I was attacked... if you could call it an attack... because my pair had just spawned and I didn't know it. And I have had a 'bad boy' who just wasn't right in the head... I'm not sure if tropical can be 'inbred' but he had some serious issues. Eventually he stressed out to the point he hid all the time and didn't eat. I had to isolate him and eventually lost him.

the size mentioned is wrong. i had a breeding pair of jags. my male was 24'+ and my female was 18'+. very aggressive fish, especially when breeding. the male managed to bite my cats tail. the cat never ate fish again lol

Lifespan 7-10 years... I got mine in my later years of elementary school (maybe grade 8). This thing is still alive and I am 28 years old now. That makes it around 15 years old.

    Yes, You need to separate these Cichlids. I have both Electric Blue Acara and Kenyi Cichlids, Separate tanks. The Acara will need a Large Tank they get much bigger then the Kenyi. Kenyi will have fry so best to have extra room for them too. I have (2) 75 gal tanks. They have very different personalities the Kenyi are more aggressive and territorial They don't want those Acara getting bigger then them because then we will see who disappears.

    Weight generally isn't a problem with theses fish. They may bloat if they are sick, or not getting an adequate diet however. Make sure you are doing regular water maintenance and providing them with a good quality and varied diet. You can read all about how to do that for the Platy Fish above, starting with the food and feeding, and then the care section following that.

    I have got a female sunset platy I don’t have any males and she is new to my tank two months ago she had eight babies and now she has had one more! Your platy will have more babies if her belly gets bigger or stays the same size good luck but don’t be fooled if she doesn’t have them straight away!
