    Wolf fish compatability

    Picked up a 265g the other day, 7'x2'x2', going to be housing some bichirs, a florida gar, a lima shovelnose, a female parachromis motaguense, and possibly a spiny eel, something like a dayi. Could a red wolf fit into this mix? Red wolf would end up being the smallest fish in the tank, and most...

    Stocking A Monster Tank

    We are about to build a 750 gallon monster tank. It will be 10 feet long, 4 feet deep and 30 inches high as planned. Acrylic if we can swing it. Glass is too heavy and the risk of breakage spooks us. I could use a bit of help with part of the stocking. We already have most of the fish...

    What kind of bichir?

    Pet store said fathead. (Weeksii) But also had ansorgii and lapradai in the same tank. I think it is one of the later two. Doesn't look like a fathead to me. But maybe I'm wrong. Or maybe its something else entirely. Sorry for spelling and not great pictures. It does have the little tufts on...
