    Don't worry they will ready up whenever they feel like eating... And according to Me feeding large amounts is not good.... Sometimes starving is a good way to secure healthy appetite

    You can buy a garlic extract and soak a worm in it for about 2 min then try to feed it to the catfish worked with mine had the same problem
    I have found that hand feeding them when they are babies works as they age they are able to feed on live fish ect.

    i would not even think about it or they will die if you do they need a heater all the time that is mostly why you can't take them anywhere

    I have 2 hatchet fish in a 75 gallon planted tank. After reading this I'm going to get more. I took my heater out after a malfunction where I lost most of my fish. My aquarium has been without a heater for four years with no problems. My water is in perfect balance and the temp stays at the lower end of normal in the winter. With that said my aquarium is heavily planted which may be a factor.

I just added a peacock eel into my 50 gal yesterday and was of course expecting her to hide but she hasn't. Our rocks are a little bit big so she couldn't dig at first but we got finer rocks for her. She's not even interested in the floor of the tank, she just swims up and down in the corners all day and night. I'm worried she's too stressed. I have caves in there and lots and lots of plants and floating plants but I'm so worried I'm over-stressing her. Help :(

    I didn't see your question earlier, I sure hope your eel is good now. It did sound like it was stressed so hopefully is comfortable in its home now.

    I have two eels with 2 massive kidding guarami, 3 colored pleco 2 blue 1 green/yellow n a,massive pictus catfish. All they do is hide but I just put them in to be fair. They are 6 to 8 inches in length already. I love them because I've segregated all predatory fish, I took my electric blue Jack Dempsey n put him solo in a pimp 20 gallon with a blue pleco so there's no animosity in my tank. Any suggestions on another swimmer thst is gentle? 120 gallon tank with 210 gal offiltati on please let me know if you've got any ideas price is not an issue

One of my blue acaras died about a month ago. Should I replace him/her or will the other one get along just fine on his own. Tanks mates are a couple of larger scissortail rasboras and three corys?

I gambled and put a sub-adult convict cichlid in with a new 4 inch (palm-sized) labiatus I bought locally. It was really stupid of me, and cost the convict its life, though it seemed like it was holding its own. I'll no longer try to keep anything with this one, and wouldn't have attempted it if I'd known better, but it was a juvenile RD. Splendid colors! Highly intelligent cichlid. Not good with plants or unsafe for fish tank decorations. They grow fast on pellets (hikari medium)...I don't plan to live feed, too risky. I'm using sand as a substrate (50 pounds in a 55 gallon tank). LED lighting makes his reds pop. I have some terracotta pots for hiding/territory. Keeping the tank around 80 degrees. Sporadic lighting. For filtration I've got a 500 GPH canister and that's it. Bioballs, sponge, poly-floss, lava rock, puragen...Seems to do fine keeping the levels A-OK. I clean it once a month or two months. I feel bad about that convict. I really liked that fish.

Having wet feet on subject of discus I paid dearly in learning; firstly a bare bottom is real good for water quality; make sure you have a night light to comfort these delicate animals, put in live plants in mesh baskets add a weight. it is totally for show off to have a total bare tank for show off these timid discus. they will be much ore happy with some kind of hiding spots like plants and some driftwood.
