    SAE in need of a school?

    Imo roseline sharks are fine in 55gals. They do better when in groups of 3-5 but you can have one by itself.

    55 Gallon Tank Stocking Ideas

    I'm almost done draining the tank at the moment.. turns out this moss I put in my tank a few months ago spread ALL over my tank and I had to destroy it.. Luckily it didn't get into my filter and I will be able to save my helpful bacteria. This is tough work

    Would a pair of angelfish work with the cherry barbs and cories?

    55 Gallon Tank Stocking Ideas

    Any ideas for a colorful fish that gets to about 4-6 inches that is peaceful and is mid to top level swimming range?

    55 Gallon Tank Stocking Ideas

    Hmm, the porthole catfish looked nice. I am not a fan of either silver dollars or rainbows. I was looking for something active that doesn't need to be in a group. I like the roseline shark, but they are rare and fairly expensive =P.

    55 Gallon Tank Stocking Ideas

    Ok, so I have a 55 gal that I am going to change up a bit. I am looking for more of a community tank. I was thinking of getting a school of about 10 or so cherry barbs and maybe 10 or so cories. I also wanted a bigger, peaceful, single species fish to put in with them. Any ideas?

    senegal bichir questions

    I have had a senegal bichir for over a year now and he is only 6 inches long and about an inch in diameter. I feel him sinking pellets at night and sometimes even earthworms. The thing with the bichir is that it's eye sight is very poor so if you have any other fish that might steal his food...

    green terror tank buddy?

    From my experience, GTs tend to grow a little bit less than 12 inches. I've seen my GTs grow to about 10 inches and will do fine in a 55gal with tank mates (being other aggressive cichlids).

    Senegal bichir

    He seems to like the HikarI Gold Cichlid pellets that I got for my JD or shrimp and earthworms. If one gets to the bottom he will swallow it up. Only problem is I over filter my tank and the food flies all over the tank before it will finally stay on the bottom.

    Senegal bichir

    Well I just gave my bichir a piece of an earthworm. I cut it so the piece is about a half an inch long. Right now the bichir is trying to swallow it and the piece is bigger than his mouth. When he first bit it he did what looked like a death roll that an alligator would do lol. He is quite and...

    Senegal bichir

    I have been feeding him tiny pieces of shrimp because that is all he can fit in his mouth. The JD also likes shrimp so if the bichir doesn't eat it fast enough the JD comes over and eats it. Also is it possible for them to choke? I accidentally gave the bichir a piece of shrimp that he couldn't...

    Senegal bichir

    I don't have a problem with the food. The problem is my bichir is slow to find food and the JD eats a lot of the food. I've noticed that the JD doesn't like shrimp so that's what I try to feed the bichir. I have trouble getting it to sink because I have to cut it up so small to fit in the...

    Senegal bichir

    The pleco has 2 pots for caves and I'm going to add driftwood once I get it so sink. I had it soaking underwater for about 2 weeks and it still floats. =\

    Senegal bichir

    Currently I have a 55 gallon tank with a senegal bichir and a jack dempsey with a pleco. The JD and the bichir are both really small. The JD is about 1 1/2 inches and the bichir is about 2 inches. When I try to sink some small cichlid pellets I notice that if the JD doesn't already devour them...

    55 gallon tank

    I already set up everything I need for the guppy breeding. I'm going to call the the pet store to see if I can swap them or get store credit. My guppies that I breed are going to be food for my bichir and JD once they get a bit bigger.
