I have 3 red tail botia loaches and would like to find a home for at least one of them. 4 1/2' long The other two are 3-3 1/2' long. I will give away to good home. Keeps my tank clean but getting too big for my tank.

    I had a red tail botia jump out of my tank and was thinking of getting another to replace him. We called him Kramer, because he was a bit of a spaz. Where are you located?

I just purchased my fahaka puffer, was told he is very agressive and grows 5'' but if raised with other baby fish it may do fine with all of them growing together! I have a 125 gallon tank includding my globe puffer, 2 peacock cichlids, tire track eel, 2 african cichlids, 3 tiger barbs, electric blue jack dempsey, 2 feather fin catfish, jeweled cichlid, 1' plecostomus, blood red parrot, they all get along beautifully! No problems at all! We will be upgradeing to a tank twice the size eventually ;) p.s researched when I got home to realize he grows 18''.

    Adriane, just get a separate tank for your puffer. As he gets bigger it's very likely your other fish will randomly become victims of nasty bites or viscous predatory attacks. I love my fahakas but only put fish with them that I would be ok with losing.

    Yeah, this is what's going on with me! 75 gallon tank. 25 African cichlids Fahaka Puffer, 2 clown loach. Noticed fins being nipped never seen it happen. Must be the puffer. He is at 3 inches. Been feeding clam, mice shrimp. Trying to figure out what size tank I should get and what filter. For the long run.

    Yeah,,, I just got 3 tiny little FP.... learning a lot.... but they all 3 stalk together! I have 2 baby Oscars the slightly larger than them as well as 4 cichlids same size, the 3 will soooo slowly stalk one fish at the same time,, and the crazy part is, if they see me, they will hide around the corner of decorations and wait for me to leave to begin their hunt again... all this behavior in one day! Anyway, I have a 75 gal to transfer to in the next few days temporarily and will choose my favorite and give or sell the rest so there is no issue. Then as they grow will definitely go tank shopping haha! Such characters these little fellas are!

You guys forgot the fire eel is probably the best looking fish of all the spiney eel family I have actually had a peacock and the fire eel together in one tank. I think the fire eel said something to him because shortly after I found the peacock in the filter. :(

    also my half banded spiney eel i found in the filter

    I have a 40 gallon breeder with 2 sponge filters on each side of the tank lots of vegetation and 5 special eel hiding "holes". 2 eels, a fire track eel, and a peacock eel. They get along great and do not argue over territory because there are lots of hiding places to choose from. We use the sponge filter so that there is no way to escape or get injured.
  • Jason - 2018-03-07
    These eels like filters ie caves holes etc. I knew to look right into my internal filter when I could only find my fire eel and one of the spineys, lo and behold he is in the filter just loving it like a cave

Wonderful to own, not quite as easy to breed. Finally caught a birth on film, only to lose all of the fry. Their personalities are amazing and they do "see" outside the tank to the entire environment.

Archerfish can be kept in freshwater. In their native waters, Archerfish have been found in pure freshwater, miles from the brackish estuaries. If they die in a freshwater tank it is mainly because they are fed an improper diet and not because of the water. They cannot survive on flake alone and need insects in their diet.
