– Aquarium Oscar Fish tank mates are sometimes hard to find. Keeping Oscar fish with other fish is a formula you need to figure out. I talk about battling aggression.

Ok cichlid friends:Peacocks and haps start dropping pics an names of your fish please, it’s time for me to start deciding on what I like most An what I’m going to be looking for… there home is cycling An soon enough will be getting stocked….ON YA MARK GET SET GO!
Streamer meaning male maybe some males gets it them I have a firemouth that did it and a Dempsey and my flowerhorn is doing it. Males get extra fin material comes off as looking like streamers just fins growing longer have an older pic of my flowerhorn when he started to get them now they are longer but this pic is from two months ago where they where just starting to grow.
Well keep an eye on it if it doesn’t look right or grows white fuzzy stuff you can worry but if it looks like fin is colored like fin and adds to the beauty of the fin is all good it may happen to the outer corners of the tail fin as well.
I have a theory, and ladies, you might follow me better on this: after use of antibiotics we are more prone to fungal infections. I wouldn’t worry too much on this bit of fuzz and let his natural immunities fight it, or pull him and dab peroxide on the affected area.
What’s going on with my Jack Dempsey, he doesn’t want to eat nor moves from the back corner top of the tank, most times he goes beside the filter or the back and he looks dead but he’s breathing slow slow, what Can I do? (Water levels are perfectly fine checked them twice today).
If he’s “sulking” you probably just did a waterchange or you havent done any waterchange for a while, the parameters might be reading negative ammonia and nitrates but the pH probably fluctuated. These two fish have spent hours circling each other so I think they are getting ready to mate…should I take the female and put her in a tank alone when they are done…
I use my local river sand in my tanks.. I take precautions i strain the fine fine stuff out first, rinse till water runs clean then even boil the sand to make sure any live things are dead before adding.
It may still throw off your parameters where some of the sand will be sea shells.. Ive heard sea shells can throw off the ph balance no matter what you do to them but i may be wrong. Thats going to be your best bet.. Id run threw a fine mesh strainer so that theres no to much fine sand to get sucked into your filter.
acclimate the fish properly and you should be fine. I’ve seen people acclimate their guppies into full salt water.
