    Fish are only the on bottom

    Hi this is my 180 gallon tank. I recently picked up 4 C. Myersi and 5 Red Head tapajos. They are active and feeding but they only hang out at the bottom. They look fine and colorful. There's plenty of surface agitation so im not sure why they are at the bottom exclusively. Thanks!

    Nocturnal catfish help

    I recently bought a false jaguar catfish and he is absolutely wicked looking. The only problem is he never shows himself at all. It is frustrating.

    Is this fungus? I have dealt with fungus before but have never had it this severe. I've had this fish for about 5 days and I've been treating him with meds for about 4 with melafix, putting in salt and turning the heat up. Any ideas what to do? Does it go away

    Has anyone had success with mixing Central/South American and African cichlids? I know many are purist and only have fish from the same regions and some same exact lakes...BUT if water parameters are ok and feeding is fine has anyone done this successfully?

    Hello Fellow Fish Lovers, A little background to explain my situation. For the last year I have been testing a "no water change" 220 liter aquarium for a company.
