I have 4 of these wonderful fish. 2 have have stripes towards their back end. Why? Also 1 has gone missing. It sounds impossible but I can't find him in the aqurium any where. Does anyone have an idea where he is? I love all my fish very much. It wasn't a cat, none of the other fish ate him, and I didnt see his body in my net or close to the aquruim. Thanks

    Almost every week at least one person writes in that they can't find a particular fish. Most of the time, the fish magically reappear. It also seems that most are found to be just find behind the filter. I have no idea why but this happens frequently. Good luck and I hope you find yours.

    Killifish are notorious for jumping out. You need a lid with little to no gaps around it.

    these killis can jump out flip around alot so he could have fliped along way from the tank.
    to stop this you should get a lid.

    The stripes indicate the sex of the fish. Male or female.

I have 2 small fantail fish: a red one and a grey spotted one. They grey seems to suffers from swim bladder problems (in the evening it swims on his side and he struggles to reach the bottom of the tank). So just to help the grey fish, every morning I feed them a soft boiled pea and later on in the day, just a few soaked flakes of fish food. My question: is it enough for them? They haven’t got any other source of food (plastic plant as decoration). I am worried that in order to keep the grey one well, the red one is starving or perhaps both of them are hungry. Thanks.

Hi, I have just acquired two Rice Fish , I think Medaka, and think I have a male and female. I am wondering what temperature of water is best to encourage breeding. Now that we are moving into July I am hoping this is a good season for breeding them. I am quite chuffed at the prospects of increasing my collection. The main reason I took to them is because they can withstand colder temperatures even in the winter here in the UK. I have a small, lily pond inside my garden greenhouse (lower walls of wood) where it is submerged into the ground about 20 inches. I may leave some fish outside over winter as the pond is quite deep and protected. I will likely place a clear cover during the coldest months here in the UK. My pond rarely gets a thin layer of ice in winter so I think they will be fine. The other reason I like these little fish is because I have tried goldfish in this pond but they came from a very large, fast swimming group tank and so jumped out when put in a smaller environment. Of course they are so much larger than Rice Fish. I love how calm Rice Fish are. Hope you all have fun with yours.

Can anyone help me? I have 2 bubble eye goldfish and they are at the bottom of the tank barely moving but still breathing, they at times float around the tank but they actually don’t swim the water flow just pushes them around. I’m really concerned and not sure on what to do.

Has anyone ever kept the Needle Nose with Tiger Barbs and Clown Loaches? I am wondering if they would try to eat the Tiger Barbs? My Barbs are rather on the large end so I was wondering if I could add a trio of Needle Nose with them? The tank is 75 US gallons.

Saved one of these from my Science teacher of all people. It had been in a miskept tank, and looked rather dull when I received it. Survived a walk home from school, and placed into my 20 gallon planted with Tiger Barbs. It recovered very well and saw its gray turn into gold within a few days, the barbs left him alone as he was 4 inches and they were 2. Lived out his last months in a nice planted tank, so I'm glad he found his way to my tank. Very forgiving and hardy fish indeed.

I've had my two bleeding heart tetras for about a year now. I chose the hearts because of how beautiful they are, they immediately caught my eye! When I got them, they were planned to be tank mates with my female betta. They all surprisingly got along, but recently my female betta passed. My bleeding heart tetras, panda and pocky, seemed kinda sad and wouldn't swim around after my betta died, so I went out and got 5 neon tetras. everything seemed fine the first day, but each day after, one would disappear. Only one neon tetra survived and it's in a different tank now. But after I rearranged Panda and Pocky's tank they are more active now! Their current tank mates are 6 ghost shrimp and one snail. They are very nice to the shrimp, thankfully. These guys are very beautiful and relaxing to watch. They're aggressive to smaller fish, but they haven't hurt any shrimp so far!!
