    Is there a way to lower timidness in Piranhas?

    So I have heard that Piranha's are usually very timid in nature but was wondering what ways there are to counteract this other than adding more fish. Can interacting with them or having a certain environment do anything to change their timid nature?

    Splitting Up The Oscars (a story)

    For those that appreciate the behavior of oscars: As I have posted before I have 4 oscars. They grew up together since they were about 1.5". Now they are about 7" and I have moved them to a larger tank. The tank was not what I ordered. It's smaller than expected. (Which is a whole other...

    Baby Sun Cat Behavior

    Hey, I have a baby sun cat in a 40 gallon tank (will upgrade when he grows older). I did a water change today, and rearranged the rocks/decor, although keeping them in the same general area. PROBLEM: The sun cat keeps "freaking out". Swimming frantically against the back glass wall. Other days...

    Gar Behavior

    Hello MFK, First time posting but have used MFK as a resource for quite a while. I did search but could not find an answer to this as it pertains to my setup: My Gar (sold to me as a Florida, I believe it is a spotted) goes through periods of pretty aggressive glass surfing. Swimming top to...

    (I'm sorry if this is a repeat thread). Hey guys, I know there is a ton of stuff on Google about care and details on these wonderful little floppy discs, but I would really like to hear what everyone can say about their behavior from personal experiences. I've noticed some cues my pup will give...

I rehomed a discus from my girlfriends house which is the larger one, I went out and bought another one at my LFS.

I put him in my temporary 20 gal tank that already have 2,5 - 3 cm black tetra, which there are 3 of them and one leopard bush fish.

    Poly being ostracized?

    My smaller female moke (moke 1)has been sitting in the left hand corner of the tank almost all day today. I saw her on the right side of the tank for a second. But the larger moke (moke 2) had the smaller mokes finlets in his mouth again. Moke 2 is so gentle, so it’s very bizarre. Over the past...

    CK Needs Live?

    I recently bought Hikari sinking carnivore pellets for my fish. My juvenile pbass like loves them and eats them before they hit the ground. My pleco will try to eat them if they sink. However, my CK will not eat them. He's looking thinner than normal, and I don't want him to starve. I also don't...

    Black Ear Shark Catfish Twitching?

    So this morning, I noticed my black ear shark catfish was twitching while swimming. He wasn't going crazy or anything; he was swimming very slowly, and every now and then he would make some jerky movements that were definitely not normal. His mouth would open whenever he twitched; it almost...

    CK scraping on the ground?

    My CK, who I've had for around a month, has survived all of the water changes that occur during the first week of a new tank setup. Recently, he has started scraping his side on the ground. And before that, he developed a small bump on his left side. The fish store I bought him from told me that...

    Black Ear Pangasius Going Nuts?

    So I've had my black ear pangasius for a little while now, and he is starting to gain confidence as a member of my tank. However, at random times, he'll go absolutely nuts for no reason. He will swim from one side of my tank to the other at lightning speed. He'll hit the glass so hard I can hear...

    Nocturnal-only pleco?

    Hi guys- I bought a small pleco a while back-around 2 1/2 inches long-and he enjoys staying in the one cave (so far) in my tank. However, that's all he does during the day. He NEVER comes out. The only time he came out was the day I put him in my tank; he also only comes out at night. Is this...
