I have about a twenty gallon tank filled with two pink convict cichlids, two pink kissing gouramis, and guppies. my cichlids which are female and male are picking on my gouramis why are they? and why are my cichlids digging holes when they are new in my a tank? does that mean they are spawning?'
And my guppies had babies a while ago should they get there color by now or des it take a while?
by the way I love this web site its the best info site on fish I have ever been on its the best!
well I hope you can email me back with all the answers. PLEASE EMAIL ME BACK
Reply. Hello and hello Kurt, I appreciate all your complimentary comments. Thank you.

Shipping and handling is $34.99 on each order to one address. If you buy one fish or 100 fish or any other number of items from us, the shipping and handling is the same $34.99 for each order.

If you order now, and then order again next week, you pay the $34.99 twice. Of course it would be smart to plan ahead and get all the fish in one order, and we recommend you do that, or combine your order with a friend and split the $34.99 charge.

We had an order that filled several boxes and cost us much more than $34.99 to ship, but we still charged the same $34.99, and the customer was very happy and said it was a great deal.

We also had a customer buy one Ghost Shrimp and pay $34.99 to ship it. We thought spending that much money on one Ghost Shrimp was weird. We actually sent a couple of extra Ghost Shrimp free, but still thought it was weird. The customer wrote back and said the Ghost Shrimp were really cool and worth it.

Your Pink Convict Cichlids have probably formed a pair and are now defending their new territory in your aquarium, and their new territory might be bigger than your entire 20-gallon aquarium. So the Pink Kisser can't get out their territory, and they will methodically pick on the Pink Kisser, because it is still in their territory.

Male Guppies begin to color-up, when they've grown to be about 1/2" long. Most female Guppies never get much color and remain gray or tan, but a few female Guppies get a little bit of color in their fins.

Thanks again for your compliments.

i added some white clouds to my one gallon tank with a betta. i observed them for ten minutes. the betta kept trying to nip the white clouds. so i removed him. is it normal for bettas to do this when a new fish is released. i would like to put him back in. i thought it would make a nice display.

I love your website.  I have recently stated buying betta fish.  I would love to purchase some of the different colored male and females but I am concern.
I had 3 female's die in a 24 hours period and I'm not sure why. Maybe you can help.  I had them in a 10-gallon tank with a heater set at 80.  I have live plant and some rock and marbles in the tank with them.
I also have several sucker fish.  I'm just not sure what I did wrong.  I have 2 other females that are doing just fine.
Thank you so much.

I have a question on mating betta fish.  I have a male that is ready to mate but I can't seem to get the females interested. I've been feeding them live worms and shrimp for 2 weeks and they still don't appear ready to mate.  What am I doing wrong?
Reply. Hello, hello, there are many things that could have killed your female Bettas. One of the most common is changing too much water a one time.

Do not remove and replace more than 20% of your water in one day. Changing more that 20% of the water can radically change the chemistry of the water and adversely affect the fish. Even if you add water condition, changing more than 20% of the water is risky. This is just one possibility.

Let me tell you my situtation first, aggression is low in my tank, I have a large male golden zebra that doesn't chase the other fish to bad but I have had fish die recently and don't know why.  Anyway, this is what I have
1 golden zebra 4 in
1 clown cichlid 2 in
1 kenyi male 2 in
1 orange blotted 2.5-3
1 cobalt zebra 1.5 in
1 mut african 1.5-2 in
2 pleco sucker
I realize some of these names are generic but I'm not good with the latin ones.  I think I have all males. the kenyi was turning yellow when I got him but shifted away to blue but I think its due to my golden zebra domince.
I have a 55 gal with two biowheel 330 and to much gravel so I'm getting rid of that. I want to get a bunch or femals and want to stay with the mumbas. How many more fish do you recomend and what type and  do you have females and can you be sure they are female.
Mr. g.
Reply. Hello, you have two Plecostomus Catfish and six Cichlids that are members of the Mbuna group from Lake Malawi in East Africa. The strongest Mbunas will kill the weaker ones, when you have less than about 15 of them in the same aquarium.

First click here and read about the Mbunas. Next click here and read the story that I wrote about the group of Mbunas living in an 80-gallon aquarium in Giselle's Restaurant several years ago.

You probably learned a few new things about keeping Mbunas by reading those two pages. You need a bigger aquarium. A 55-gallon just isn't quite big enough for a group of Mbunas.

You need an 80-gallon aquarium, and you need about 40 Mbunas from which you will remove about 20 by the time they become full grown in a few years.

Two Penguin 330 filters will be the right filters in an 80-gallon aquarium, and as you said, you'll want to remove all or most of the gravel, so the gravel is no more that 1/4" thick.

You'll also want to get a bunch of rocks that are safe for aquariums.

Click here to read about a method I've used to put big rocks in an aquarium with very little gravel and avoid cracking the glass bottom in the aquarium.

I have just started keeping freshwater fish in my aquarium, but do not seem to be able to get the water as clear as it should be. I have 2 filters working in the tank which work by bacteria, for a lot of the time the water is clear, but I have great difficulty in keeping it that way.
I change 25% of the water about every fortnight. The water was nice and clear for about a fortnight there, but when we changed it last week it has gone very cloudy and doesn't look like clearing can you tell me where we are going wrong please. hoping to hear from you soon.
Thank you.
Reply. Hello Ramona, avoiding cloudy is a very important skill that new aquarists must learn. You are right in saying that bacteria are the key to clear water.

You say you remove 25% of the water and replace it with tap water from the faucet about every forth day. I would recommend you decrease that amount to at most 20%, and do it every day, if your water is cloudy.

Click here to go to another page in this web site that thoroughly discusses cloudy water. First, how to get rid of it and make the water clear up. Then there is also an explanation about why the water is cloudy.

Hey, I want to throw a question at you even though I get a lot of useful information from your site. After much movement and change, I have two Pink Aeneus Corydoras and a Rainbow Shark in a ten gallon tank.
My question is; Can I put Neon Tetras in my tank with my Rainbow Shark? and if so, how many can I and should I put in there, considering the three fish all ready in there?
If I cannot put Neon Tetras in my tank, I would like to hear your recommendations on what else would be good to put in my tank.  Any and all help and information on my questions and this subject matter would be most appreciated.
Thanks a bunch!
Reply. Hello Mookie, Neon Tetras are not compatible with a Rainbow Shark.

The Neons are compatible with the Pink Aeneus Corydoras Catfish. Click here to read more about compatible tank mates for Neon Tetras, where you'll see the Cory Catfish listed.

If you get Neons, you should get at least 6, because they are a schooling fish, and they will not be comfortable with less than 6 Neons to school with. If you get the Neons, you'll need to move your Rainbow Shark to another aquarium. Click here to read more about the Rainbow Shark, where you'll find out that your Rainbow Shark can grow to be 9" long and will eventually need an aquarium with at least 50-gallons of water.

So I recommend that you find another aquarium for the Rainbow Shark and put six Neons with you Cory Catfish in your 10-gallon aquarium. I hope my reply helps you.

You note on your site that rainbow sharks need a piece of pipe to swin into and I was wondering if  PVC pipe is safe for aquariums? If not, could you tell me what type of pipe you use? Also, do the sharks like to swim through it or should I close one end so they can use it like a cave?

Thanks ..
Reply. Hello DragonFly, I agonize a little bit over answering this question, because we have used PVC pipe in our facilities for a long time.

But of course it is not labeled for use in aquariums with fish. Now days I recommend that you buy a cave or some pieces of artificial driftwood that are labeled for use in aquariums.

You can buy lots of different ornaments in stores that sell pet fish and from some of the online stores that advertise on this web site.
