    Looking for someone who can identify my fish

    the owner of my LFS gave me three of these fish because he was renovating his store. I don't know what they are. They are definitely community fish. They respect everyone in the tank and spend most of their time resting on the bottom among the plants or laying on a leaf, sort of like a person...

    Problem Feeding Bottom Feeders

    My five bottom swimming rummy nose tetras aren't getting enough food...I'm looking for answers on how to feed them. When I feed my fish with the flake food I have, the tiger barbs quickly devour nearly every morsel of food before it reaches the tetras. I tried putting in some algae wafers...

    Can You Have More Than 1 Blue Ram In A 20g Long Tank?

    The female blue ram, still a child, looks terribly bored. I don't know the nature of blue rams and so I cannot predict how they respond to others. The 20 gallon long is relatively small and there is some concern that they will interact poorly with others of their own kind. I'm just wondering how...

    3 Spot Gouramis

    Based on my experience with 1 fully grown Gourami, 36 gallons is enough for 2 Gourami. I wouldn't get 2 males as they will end up becoming rivals and dividing the tank in half. GouramI are obsessive about protecting their territory, and the problem I ran in to was that instead of swimming around...

    Can You Tell Me The Name Of A Fish I Bought Recently? (pictures)

    Thank you Ram lovers for access to your thoughts and care guides and thank you for confirming it was female. It's easy to see why you all like Rams so much. They have an appetite that rivals Homer Simpson, giving them the nutrients they require for their phenomenal growth rate. They don't become...

    Driftwood Growing Fuzz

    I got scared bc it got stuck in the bristles of a little cory catfish and I thought it had a bacterial infection. Now I know it was just sucking on the wood.

    Identify What Killed My Gourami (pic)

    Sorry for making you look at the somewhat gruesome picture, but I needed your help. I think its hole in the head disease too..if it is this disease there lies the possibility that most of this tank will be wiped out. Three weeks ago I took apart the entire tank to move it up a flight of stairs...

    Can You Tell Me The Name Of A Fish I Bought Recently? (pictures)

    U guys are awesome and thank you for helping a poor soul from Falls Church, VA identify his fish as an Electric Blue or German Blue Ram. The owner of my LFS is vastly marine, hence the name Quantum Reefs. Marine is really his bread and butter, and he also gets some very beautiful fresh water...

    Identify What Killed My Gourami (pic)

    Unfortunately even with medication this little guy did not recover and in the end was euthanized humanely with clove oil to spare it any more pain. Besides the ulcer on the body it stayed at the surface sucking air and became bloated on one side. A few days after death the spine of a large...

    All I know is that it's a baby, non aggressive to other fish, and will make sure every morsel of food gets eaten.
