I bought three of these fish called 'mixed fruit tetra' from Wal-Mart before I knew they were dyed artificially. (Had I known this I would not have purchased them.) I have them in a 10 gallon tank and they are an absolute joy. Only fish in the tank with a few plants, decorations, heater, gravel, and filter. They are extremely clean fish, and they eat very little food. 10 gallons is PLENTY of room for these guys. Warning! These fish will jump straight out of the tank if they can, just like the article said; keep your tank covered! These fish DO NOT like LED lights or tank bubblers so don't waste your money. They seem to prefer simple cave decorations and plants, nothing too fancy for these guys. VERY easy to take care of and the tank requires very little maintenance once established. The fish are very playful with each other and are fun to watch.

    Sounds like the common disease known in it's short form as 'ick'. You can get medication at any pet store. All medication is different, so you'd want to read it very carefully. There are ick guards you can use, too. But you don't want to use those unless you have to. Keep the water clean and the fish fed, as well as unstressed. Big enough tank for what you have. It'll cut the risk down

    If you have a tank full of fish and even if only one fish gets spots that look like grains of salt you probably have ick. To cure ick turn up the heat to at least 86% the ick will fall off the fish ,but they are alive now to kill the ick dose tank heavly with salt tha will kill the ick await a few days and vacum the bottom and do a water change.

yes hello, i went to the local petsmart and bought a hatchet fish for my sons 3rd birthday party. He loved the fish so much he named it Barkley the sock. Sadly Barkley died 4 days later. Best pet experience of my life

    Seems like you didn't do your research before buying the fish.

I am looking to buy a red tail blue botia loach. I have shop around and can't find any for sale. Wanting one around 2' to 2 1/2'. Also do not want to spend an arm and leg for one. It needs to be reasonable. Hoping to find one. Thank you.
