I have read many comments regarding the Peacock Eel and would just like to mention I started mine off in a 350ltr aquarium at a size of 5cms. 18 months later he is the best specimen I have every seen at just under 40cms long. I feed him on a mix of flake, frozen bloodworm but his most favourite food taken from my fingers is frozen whole mussel meat. He shows no sign of a growth slowdown and just wonder how much bigger he will grow; any idea ??

A sad morning. Lost my last Australian Rainbow fish overnight. Hadn't been doing well for the past week or so. Had it for over 15 years, so I should consider both of us lucky. Lost the tank mate over 5 years ago due to a heater malfunction.

Hello. I just started my first aquarium about a week ago. I'm sad to say that I was not educated properly before I added fish to my tank as I only thought you had to get the temperature right for them. Well all of the fish I added to my tank died in less than a day, so I started doing research online. I waited several days before I added new fish. I brought home a test kit to be sure that it would be safe for new fish to live in. So I added 2 male red swordtails. One looks totally fine but he sits at the bottom of the tank a lot and I haven't yet seen him eat. The other one moves more, but he appears to have the clamped fin? But last night after I turned the light off to the aquarium, his fin flared out more. Today, neither of them ate any of the food I put in for them this morning and aren't moving around much. Someone please help! I really hope they're not sick and we're gonna lose more fish!

    Hey add 1g aquarium salt to every 10L of water to your tank. Fishes my be suffering from initial bad parameters. The salt will help them feel better.

    Have you researched the nitrogen cycle? Likely your tank hasn't cycled.

Telescope eyes protruding: 3/4 of the inch is NOT 20 cm, you probably mean millimeters. Telescopes born in our fish tanks had large eyes since couple of weeks old, you could tell from start even when we were still looking at them with a magnifying lens.

I have one stonefish which I have had for about 6 months. I have kept him in freshwater and have not seen him eat, but he must be eating because he is still alive. I have him with other fish... red tailed catfish, banjo, and spotted raphael. I feed him goldfish

    Is this fish still available??

    lionfish are nocturnal and they hunt at night so if you have patience turn off the light and sit and watch him and you'll see him eat if you feed them live feed feeders

    I've had my FW Lionfish for about 7 months and I have trained it to eat off feeder tongs. It really likes muscles. I just wiggle it in front of it him and he sucks it in. Because there all harvested from the wild it takes some training and patience but it will happen when he becomes hungry enough.

I have had my stonefish for about a year and have kept him in freshwater the whole time. At first he was a rather picky eater but now I'm feeding him small comets. He gets about a dozen a month and it seems to keep him happy. He is a very vocal fish and when I am running a vaccum or some such thing he has often voiced his disapproval. He is a fascinating fish to watch and moves devilishly fast compared to what I was expecting.
good luck

    I just got a freshwater lionfish. Do u have any specific advice on how to keep him healthy? How often should i feed him? Anything else I need to know?
  • art - 2017-12-05
    I had a freshwater lion fish a few years back and they kept dying. I became frustrated and upset because losing any fish is like losing a child to me.. Could you give me advice on how to setup/and cycle a tank for these beauties, as well as what products you use, as well as any maintenance tips.. I want to try again. Thanks.
  • Tim Buchanan - 2018-01-20
    This fish is a Brackish water fish so maybe that's why they keep dieing.

    You really shouldnt free fish,you could have rehomed them.Also considering they are very tropic they most likely wont survive.
