    Oscar Fasting With Other Fish

    And it's gone! Thanks for the advice. He ate a few pellets just now and pooped so I think we're good.

    Darn. Mine are probably 8 months max. Got a while to go...

    Oscar Fasting With Other Fish

    Today it's almost gone, so I think I'm just going to wait it out. It's just a little bulge now. He's been doing fine this whole time, so hopefully it'll be gone by tonight. I won't feed them today and it should go away.

    Oscar Fasting With Other Fish

    The thing is though that there's nothing coming out, it's just the lump. Is that still a prolapse? Much confusion.

    Oscar Fasting With Other Fish

    Will it heal? I'll try the plant food but if there's meat in the area he'll go for it. It looked like it had gone down slightly earlier but then he ate all those bloodworms like an idiot.

    Firemouth Cichlid Fry

    Congratulations! I'm jealous...my fire mouths just fight all the time. And they are like two inches long and dull. How long did it take for them to get that big?

    20 Gallon Stocking Advice

    Def agree here, didn't think of that. Neons could be really nice, they're finicky though. Harlequins could be cool too.

    20 Gallon Stocking Advice

    Guppies maybe? It is pretty stocked. Are you having aggression issues with the betta and the gourami (just something I've heard because they're both labyrinth fish and they have a similar body shape). You could probably do some corys, they really liven things up. TBH there's not much else you...

    Amazon Puffer And Tiger Bars

    First off, more tiger barbs. Second, both fish species are jerks and so they should be fine together. Hopefully more experienced people answer LOL.

    Oscar Fasting With Other Fish

    So I have a maybe 3.5-4 inch oscar in a 75 with a bunch of other fish, there will be changes coming but for now everyone's happy. The one thing is, he seems to have some kind of a lump near his vent and I want to fast him for a few days to see if it goes away. Pic (not mine but identical...

    Chain Pickerel With Koi?

    Sterlets look cool. Pacus? I've seen those kept with koi. Then again most of my experience of pond fish is from Youtube and they try all kinds of stupid stuff. I think I'll stick with koi and goldfish to start. Thanks for all your help!

    Chain Pickerel With Koi?

    Oh well. Darn. I just saw them in a video and wasn't able to find much info so I came here. That kinda sucks. And it was a grass pickerel in the video jjohnwm. From what I was able to find (which tells you how much info I had) I thought chain and grass were the same pickerel. Rats. Are bass...

    Chain Pickerel With Koi?

    So I live in New England and we have chain pickerel here and I just found about them! I'm also building a koi pond in the next year, hopefully. My question is, if I bought 3-4 inch koi from Petsmart (I'm not interested in showing or anything, just in cool fish) and put a baby pickerel in with...

    Oscar Feeding Problems

    And he's eating! Yay! He just waits for everyone else to go away and then the cube gets waterlogged and falls down to where he is and he eats. Perfect!

    Oscar Feeding Problems

    I think he only took a bit out of one because he was trying to establish territory. He was bothering my fire mouths when I first put him in. Those things are like three-inch tanks. They're ferocious. There's no way he can eat one, he just wants to see what the pecking order is. And just BTW they...

    Oscar Feeding Problems

    I don't really have a place to put them right now...my other tank has angels in it and they have a bad history with angels, and frankly those angels are a lot more valuable to me then those tetras. He literally couldn't care less about them right now. None of them fit in his mouth, though I had...

    Oscar Feeding Problems

    I tried Hikari Gold cichlid pellets but they float and he's on the bottom all the time, and then I tried API sinking pellets but he just ignored those. Both fit in his mouth easily. He's probably just acclimating, I guess? My fire mouths took three or four days before they would eat and now...

    Oscar Feeding Problems

    I will be moving the tetras but he's still pretty quiet. He completely ignores the cichlids. I'll also be buying another tank pretty soon, may put him in there when he gets bigger. I know how big they get, he's in a 75 right now, but he's ignoring everything and I figured I had at least three...

    Is There Something Wrong With This Red Phantom Tetra?

    Mine have black markings on the sides and heads. I can't tell but I think that's how yours looks? It should be ok.

    Is This Fin Rot?

    I'm guessing nipping too. One of my angels was nipping the other and the spot looks like that. Both fish are perfectly healthy, just where the bites are is now a little white spot of tissue on the end of the fin. It's scar tissue, basically.
