Recieved my fish in great shape, early this am. They are happily swimming around in their aquariums. I am quite pleased with the choices.
                                      Thanks   G.Simons
Reply. Thank you for sending us an email. We always enjoy reading that our fish have arrived safely and are in their new homes. Glad to read that you are pleased.

I have two ten gallon tanks and at first did what most amateurs do. When I purchased the first tank I went out and BOUGHT FISH too early. I got the results expected. Cloudy, stinky water and sick fish.
Finally I decided enough is enough. It took a big water change, reduction of feeding and reduction of fish. The water doesn't smell like it did and is clear.
However, it smells like FISH. Please don't laugh but is it supposed to? My daughter says I am too obsessive about the tanks.
I have another two gallon "baby" tank, with Mickey Mouse Platies and six baby Lyretail Mollies. They are thriving. My fish seem very healthy and "hungry" all the time.
I am just concerned about the smell of the water. I would appreciate any help you could give me.
Also, I would like for you to know that when I have questions, I always come to your site. It is in my "favorites".
Reply. Hello again Gaye. For a long time I've said that good fish water smells like good garden soil.

Your email mentioned that your aquarium water smells like fish, so I smelled the water in some of my aquariums, and I agree with you the water does smell fishy.

Click here for more information about using your eyes and nose to test aquarium water.

It's important to smell your fish water, it should smell like fishy garden soil. If the smell changes and smells like garlic or cigar smoke or something else strange, then you have a warning that something has changed in the water chemistry.

What to do? Clean your aquarium and change 20% of the water. Repeat changing 20% of the water each day until the water smells like fishy garden soil again.

family="SCRIPT"I was thinking of ordering some neons. But I know that they are not that hardy of a fish. If the unfortunate happens that it is doa, do you send me a new fish free of charge (including shipping) or would I have to pay for the shipping of the new fish?
i did read the policy of returning the fish. So I do understand that.
Reply. Hello again Debbie. I think Neon Tetras are hardy, but they are small and fragile.

There are only a few fish that are compatible tank mates for Neon Tetras. But Neon Tetras usually ship very well, and can live for 10 years.

Click here to read more about Neon Tetras.

We do replace DOA fish, but you would pay for the shipping. Of course we hope that you will order more fish from us from time to time.

If so, we will replace the DOA fish free in your next order. Let me emphasize that the percentage of DOA fish is very small.

what would be the price of the mostly black crowned male betta?
Also are the green bettas a dark almost emerald colored green? Or a light pale green?
how much would shipping be if I just wanted to order some plants( say two plants) from you?
Reply. Hello again Debbie. Once in a while we have a few Crown Tail Bettas in our facility.

We also have thousands of other types of male and female Bettas.

Please call us between 9AM and 3PM PDT, Monday through Friday at 1-858-270-1182 and ask to talk with Josh, who can tell you if we have any Crown Tail Bettas available.

hey i emailed yall about 2 days ago about my fish that i have ... i have a 1 foot oscar, a 7 inch red devil, and a 8 inch albino cat ... u told me that yalls oscars were too small for my fish .. i was wanderin if u could tell what fish yall do have that could go in my aquarium with my fish ...
thank you
Reply. Hello again Daniel, I read your email carefully. Really we don't have fish that will go in the same aquarium with your fish.

We might have a few catfish that are spiny enough to survive in your aquarium. For example, White Tip Sharks Cats might survive.

Click here to see them. Synodontis catfish might survive too.

Click here to see them.

To find fish that are big enough to go in your aquarium I recommend that you look for "trade ins" at your local fish store. I have a nice fish store near my facility.

I was there the other day and saw a couple of gigantic Catfish and several big Cichlids that had grown too big for their previous owners, who had traded them in to the fish store for some smaller fish.

Some fish stores also have a trading board where people post fish that need a bigger home. From time to time I see some great deals posted.

We supply mostly young fish that ship best at a size from about 1.5" to 3".

Fish that are larger than 3" are usually more difficult to pack and more difficult to ship.

Dear AquariumFish,
I have been keeping fish for 7 yrs and I'm thinking about starting a cichlid tank. I have decided I am going to keep fish from Lake Malawi. Can you suggest any species of cichlids that are good and hardy for a begginer cichlid owner?
Reply. Hello. I recommend Mbunas, which are a group of fish that live among the rocks along the shore of Lake Malawi in East Africa.

Get a group of about 20 juvenile Mbunas at 1.5" to 2" long.

Click here to see several species. All the species of Mbuna Cichlids are pretty much compatible provided the aquarium is big enough and contains plenty of aquarium safe rocks.

Click here to read more about Mbunas.

I also wrote a small story about a group of Mbunas living in a beautiful 80-gallon aquarium in Giselle's Restaurant.

Hello, I was told that there were several plant types that could be grown in an aquarium along with a male Beta.  The idea is that the fish derives nutrition from the roots of the plant while the plant derives nutrition from the waste in the water from the Beta.  Have you heard of this and, if so, what plants are suitable?  I heard certain Lilies were good.

Reply. Hello Pete, I'd say it's possible that Bettas might eat a small amount of something on the roots, but not enough to survive on.

We strongly recommend that you feed your Bettas pellet food that is labeled for Betta Fish plus some freeze dried blood worms, which are actually mosquito larvae.

Both of these foods are sold in most stores that sell pet fish.

Click here for more about feeding fish.

Click here for more about Bettas.

We offer several types of plants. All of them are suitable for an aquarium with Betta Fish.

Reply. Hello Theresa. Tetras are not livebearers. Tetras lay eggs and at this time we do not have more information about breeding Tetras.

Hi, I'm a college student looking to get back into aquariums. I recently bought a 60-gallon acrylic tank with two external filters and a heater. I was thinking of putting in a small group of the larger cichlids with a small school of giant danio's as dither fish.
I was thinking along the lines of oscar's, green terror's, black convict's, and the jack dempsey. I found your website FULL of great information and plan on ordering my fish from you once I figure out a good setup.
I just don't know if I should buy pairs or just keep them as singles. Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated! Keep up the great work with providing great fish and great information!
Reply. Hello Nate, both Oscars and the Neotropical Cichlids, that you listed, will soon grow too big for a 60-gallon aquarium, even if you keep just a single fish of each species.

One Oscar could live for a while in a 60-gallon aquarium, but will eventually need a bigger aquarium.

A second choice might be Mbuna Cichlids from Lake Malawi in East Africa.

But based on our extensive experience with these fish, a 60-gallon aquarium is a little small. We recommend an 80-gallon aquarium for Mbunas.

Click here for more information about Mbunas.

A good choice for your 60-gallon aquarium would be Angelfish. They will do very well in a 60-gallon Aquarium. Angels are Cichlids, and you could get a dozen of them.

Raise them up, and let them form breeding pairs. They will breed in your aquarium without creating a lot of work for you, and they are very interesting to watch.

Click here for more about Angels.

My final recommendation is the small Cichlids from Lake Tanganyika. They do very well in a 60-gallon aquarium with lots of aquarium-safe rocks.

Click here for more about these wonderful little fish.

You mentioned using Giant Danios as dither fish. The idea of dither fish originated in Germany, as did the term dither fish.

The idea is to have some extra fish, such as the Giant Danios that you mentioned, in the aquarium to distract the other fish and lessen the aggression.

But Giant Danios are too small to serve as dither fish among Oscars and Neotropical Fish. Large Tetras such as Serpae Tetras and Silver Tip Tetras are good dither fish for Angels.

Click here for more information about large Tetras. Mbunas and the small Cichlids from Lake Tanganyika won't need dither fish in your 60-gallon aquarium.

family="SERIF"... how do I tell a male Molly from a female Molly?
Reply. Hello again Debbie. Usually you can look at the Mollies and see that the females are much plumper, while the males are slimmer.

But this will not always help you distinguish between the males and the females.

Male Mollies have a modified fin called a gonopodium, the females have a normal unmodified fin.

I don't have pictures that show the difference between the fin of the Male Molly and the fin of the Female Molly.

But Swordtails are closely related to Mollies, and I do have pictures showing the difference between the fin on Male and Female Swordtails.
