    Hello PawTalk, Iv had fish as a teen (Guppies, gold fish, mollies, angel fish & barbs) I found these fish messy and uninteresting to watch. I have a 10 gal tank which I plan to start a "fishless" cycle before I start making a "community". Have looked at the different types of sharks and was...

At closer inspection it looks like there is a air pocket in his abdomen(closer to the tail than head). it looks pretty clear and see-through. he is swimming decently, looks like he wants to eat, but doesnt. He is breathing about 3...

    I am wondering if there is a species of fish that are scavengers and will eat fish poop.Gross I know. I was thinking this,because I have goldfish and they are quite messy fish in general.It would be neat to have a scavenger fish that could live with the goldies and would eat poop...it would...

    :( I have a 30gal tank- the water is pea green! i believe that the main reason for this would be overfeeding the fish and too much organic matter in the water...is that a possibility? Also, is it true that you need at least 2-3watts per gallon of light? i was thinking about getting a 60watt...

    I know I've thought my betta had fin rot but not I'm positive its not his coloring. I treated him a while ago with Bettafix and had no success with it at all. I've been cleaning his water once a week 100% and putting stress coat and blackwater extract in there. It's a 10 gallon with a filter...

    Well I guess the setup didn't go so well because one of the goldfish I have is black and I can see a whitish film on him. I couldn't find him this morning as he was hiding in a decoration. I had the petstore test my water and they said the PH high and to buy a reducer, that and the amonia was...

    I noticed today when I fed my 4 bettas that my gold and blue male Oro was swimming on his side. He is still very fiesty, I think this has just come up in the last day or so... he ate, which only after he ate did I notice he was on his side, or I wouldnt have fed him. I went ahead and fed him...

    Do any of you aquarists here keep fancy goldfish? I would love to get a black moor and an oranda someday, but I know they need a huge tank to grow in and require a lot of cleaning. They certainly are beautiful fish though and I'd love to hear your experiences if you have any to share. :)...

    A few days ago I noticed a small marking on Keitaro, right above his eye. It looked like a scar and I figured he'd injured himself. He was eating and swimming normally so I didn't worry too much. The next day it had spread a little and turned white. I think it's infected or maybe some kind of...

    I want to a carnival, and I saw that they had like 10 dead goldfish. felt bad for them, so I took the four that were alive, and took them inside. I made a little rescue. :D I had applications, and found good, caring homes for all of them! :) I took the last one home for myself, and named his...

    Well, I've started to use my new digi cam, and thought I'd start with the fish. Now, please forgive me as I am still learning to take tank pics. (and forgive the spots on the tank, we just did water changes). First is Snowy, a snowball pleco (we just got him!) Then here's Slate & Marble...

    Hi again, I have another question on my betta fish. Do you guys know if it is normal for them to have well it looks like bumps on their head. They look white and they are in a cluster. Is that normal or should I be worried? I notice it on some and none on other betta's. Please tell me my betta...
