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.

    To all people that flush in toilets or throw live Exotic fish in water ways.you are helping to destroy delicate ecosystems and bring a negative light on all fish keepers and breeder.Even the master keepers and breeders in this hobby/business.Plus you cause governmental Sections to start banning species of fish or now requiring permits to keep not cool.People like you shouldn't be allowed the great privilege to be able to own any Aquatics or be in this Hobby/Business.

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

My oscar fish is nine inches and I have hoplosternum littorale that is a 9 inches and syndontis ocellifer that is 8 inches and a common pleco that is 9 inches and they all eat the feeder fish but the pleco. My hoplo catfish begs me for food. The fish tank is 55 gallon.

Hi,, I have bought a pair of alounocara red peacock, ( Rubin ) and I joined him with other tank mates as,
2 lemmon cichlid
2 blue zebra cichlid
2 venustus
2 parrot
1 fontosa

Everything seems fine but the venustus seems to be upset with him. He can't stop darting on them,, although I have many hiding spaces and all that, what shall I do :(

    I included articles on the various fish you have in your tank. The Venustus has a predatory nature and it is recommended you have a 60 gallon tank when they are little and 125 gallon as they mature. They want a lot of space. Could this be the problem. You have a good number of fish. How big is your tank?
  • christopher price - 2012-03-05
    If I were you I would move the venustus to another tank. I have africans. I had 2 pair of orange blotch peacocks, 2 pair of deep water haps (pladichromis electra), a jewel cichlid, pleco,and a juvenile ruby crystal peacock. Guess what? All I have is a ruby crystal peacock and the pleco. The ruby crystal killed everything except for the orange blotch male and the jewel cichlid they died from my water quality. African cichlids are very agressive he's probably gonna tear your peacocks up. If i was you I would move them or the vunustus cichlid..

Good info until you said the Orinoco Altum is a cross/tank bred species. The Orinoco Altum comes from the Orinoco river basin......... That breed is not a man made creation that is a wild varation of fish.....

These fish are extremely resilient and a great starter fish, however the length that is mentioned in the facts about fish is of I have one the is 17 1/2” long. They love algae wafer temperamental accessionaly. I have had a 12” rope snake eaten by him because the rope snake was engaging on hi territory they have to have a place of there own. Very personable I have a chair beside my tank and when I sit in it he swims over and hangs out til I get up and he swims back under his tree. Will destroy any placement of decorations so I find myself fixing them weekly. All great fish like have a toddler but no screaming no chasing around the house and well feed once daily

I have owned 7 hatchet fish in the last year. 3 of them have jumped out of my tank to their death. I am finally putting a net over my tank, good idea :)

I have a pair of blue acara , I love these fish, I am a little confused over their sex. Is there a big difference in their size. The larger has a squarer head to its slope , however the smaller is more oval rounded like, it is also extremely more darker. Their behaviour to each other is somewhat confusing too sometimes very friendly , the next the larger just Persues the smaller. Can anyone offer any further advice . Thanks

    Males are larger with extended dorsal and anal fins
  • Wakeem - 2012-09-20
    How about the behaviour . Do they always chase each other around?
  • Johnc - 2022-07-08
    It's best just to keep one blue acara that way the stress level will be way down and the 1 fish will flourish. Only put 2 in there if you intend on breeding them.
