  • The compatibility of a species has to do with how well the fish will do in a community setting. (
  • Some species of fish are better able to handle changes in aquarium water parameters than others. (
  • As a novice freshwater aquarium hobbyist, you are likely to make some mistakes while you are still learning the ropes so it is best to choose a species that can handle a little variation. (
  • While breeding ability can be considered a benefit of certain freshwater fish, it should not be your primary concern when selecting a species. (
  • Damsels are hardy, lively, and colorful marine fish, but the territorial nature of many species belies their relatively small size. (
  • Unfortunately some hobbyists, especially those new to the hobby, don't realize how territorial some species are and how important it is to consider the order in which they should be placed in the aquarium (i.e., first fish, in-between additions, or the last fish to be added). (

  • As far as reef fishes go, they are probably the most widespread family, having species in every tropical sea in the world. (
  • After becoming an expert on water chemistry, aquarium mechanics, and the biology of various fish species, I assembled this glass-walled environment and watched its aquatic community flourish.I had maintained this miniature ecosystem, home to seven fish species, for nearly a year-but how well did I truly know it? (
  • Alarmed, I have observed my fish in this position, but fortunately the 'sleeping' behavior is completely normal for the species. (

  • Causes: the Causative agent of this disease is Cryptocarion irritans, which is a kind of analogue of the freshwater "ihti", parasitic on tropical marine fish. (
  • Tropical Fish Disease Identification with pictures and cures. (
  • Most of the time, troubleshooting by frequent water changes and avoiding fish stress will prevent serious outbreaks of disease in the tank. (
  • Healthy fish can actually cohabitate with some disease organisms at low concentration without becoming symptomatic, but when fish are stressed by sudden environmental changes and overcrowded conditions, their immune systems don't function well and they become far more susceptible to disease. (
  • Perhaps the most common disease of pet fish. (
  • The swim bladder disease in fish is not lethal on its own and it is rather a symptom than an independent condition. (
  • For the intricacies ofwater quality, diverse fish anatomy, nutrition, and the multitude agents of disease,consult the many excellent information sources listed in the references. (
  • If just one fish in the tank looks unhealthy or even dead, this means the rest of the fish in that tank will also be potential carriers of disease and you risk losing the fish. (
  • The reason for the quarantine is to make sure that the disease does not spread to other fishes. (
  • This can affect the water quality of the aquarium and lead to disease caused by high ammonia levels, high nitrite levels, low dissolved oxygen content, low pH and other incorrect parameters. (
  • Black spots on goldfish is a result of poor water quality being that the ammonia level in the aquarium has spiked. (
  • When the ammonia level in your tank increases it causes black spots to appear on the goldfish body and black tips to appear on the tail, pectoral fins and dorsal fins. (
  • It causes discomfort in your goldfish and high levels of ammonia can kill your goldfish. (
  • Now don't mistaken black spots on goldfish being ammonia burn all the time. (
  • Check your water quality often to ensure that you don't have black spots on goldfish and ammonia burn to happen. (
  • Tap water does not have GOOD bacteria for breaking down fish waste/ammonia. (
  • I hope it is enough for you to help me, I am not able to know the nitrate, ammonia, etc. levels because it is really difficult find aquarium specialized shops in my country, usually they just sell fish and fish food, I will however try to find a water test kit a soon as I can. (
  • You should also update your filter level below what is goldfish the size of the tank as much ammonia and excrete much need oxygen dissolved in water is recommended. (
  • The digestion of proteins by fish results in the production of ammonia. (
  • Ammonia is highly toxic to fish, hence they must eliminate this waste product from their bodies by excreting it into the water. (
  • If levels of ammonia in the water get too high, the fish will be poisoned. (
  • Ammonia can be found in the aquarium in two forms, these are free ammonia (NH3) and ammonium (NH4), free ammonia is more toxic than ammonium and the ratio of free ammonia to ammonium depends upon the pH, temperature and salinity of the water. (
  • Results with all of these have been excellent with the following notes: Sea Salt is rich in carbonates and will raise Total Alkalinity and pH which may be undesirable if there is a significant Ammonia accumulation or your fish are adapted to an acidic pH. (
  • I have a pair of fantails who also got black charcoal-like smudges on their bodies and fin edges during tank cycling, when the ammonia and nitrite levels got out of control. (
  • Your fish could have scraped itself on something sharp in the tank, or if you have a new tank, it may be recovering from ammonia burns or some other water quality problem during cycling. (
  • In conclusion, it seems that the black smudges or marks on the fish were caused initially by ammonia burn. (
  • The situation changes when the fish are stressed, or the cuticle is being affected by adverse water quality such high ammonia/nitrite levels, inappropriate pH or other toxins. (
  • Fungus also attacks fish that have been weakened by shipping, rough handling, exposure to ammonia and nitrite, improper netting, and malnutrition. (
  • The hana fusa or white pompom oranda is an elegant pompom with a dorsal fin. (
  • B. Blackmoor Similar in shape to an Oranda, this black fish has bulbous eyes that project from the head. (
  • There are double-tailed goldfish which come in many colors. (
  • Breeders aimed to produce the highest quality of colors and shapes ever found on a goldfish. (
  • However, the fish actually comes in different colors. (
  • Down this far, red colors fade and darken, and this red striped fish turns almost to black and white, like a zebra. (
  • However, solid fin colors are, and ideal physical trait to the goldfish show judges. (
  • The common goldfish has been a staple of modern fish keeping drawing countless thousands perhaps millions into the hobby, and why not, with their bright colors and engaging demeanor they easily capture the hearts of fish keepers. (
  • Anyway, personally I think yellow is one of the most amazing colors for any fish really. (
  • [14] Goldfish have four kinds of cone cells , which are respectively sensitive to different colors: red, green, blue and ultraviolet . (
  • The colors are only intense when the fish is fighting or breeding and tend to be washed out at all other times. (
  • Their bright colors make them popular as a great choice for freshwater aquariums. (
  • Discus fish have stunning markings and bright brilliant all-over body colors. (
  • These popular Betta Fish (also known as the Siamese Fighting Fish) come in a large variety of fin types and colors. (
  • They are available in monochrome colors, but a Betta displaying 2 or more colors with its large elegant flowing fins is unmatched when it comes to other freshwater fish. (
  • Yellow-green colors make up the main body and blue dots cover the fins. (
  • The Ranchu goldfish can have an average lifespan of about 10 - 15 years. (
  • The Ranchu has a broad back and tail fins that fan out almost horizontally, whereas the Lionhead's back is slightly flattened and tail fins fan out more vertically. (
  • The Ranchu Goldfish can come in a variety of colours and patterns, with the most familiar pattern being bi-coloured often presenting as red with white or gold with white. (
  • Bloodworms are a big hit with most goldfish, and Ranchu goldfish are most certainly no exception. (
  • Just be mindful to take caution when providing your Ranchu with fresh food because some of them may contain parasites that could easily cause your goldfish great harm. (
  • Ranchu aquariums are best set uo with a lid to avoid evaporation of aquarium water as well as keeping the goldfish inside the tank. (
  • Fish are not the only friends your Ranchu will have. (
  • They should have a solid uniform growth and be spherical in shape.The body of a true pompon goldfish should look like the body of ranchu types without a dorsal fin. (
  • The ranchu has a prominent arch in its back and downward pointed tail fins. (
  • This is a necessity if you plan on keeping your goldfish healthy and living a long life free of black spots. (

  • Females are pink with white bellies, while young sheephead look quite different: they're bright reddish orange with large black spots on their dorsal and upper tail fins and a long white stripe. (
  • These eels have a long, slender body covered in yellow slime and no fins to help them slide in and out of narrow crevices. (
  • I've been looking forward to having fish in there for so long, that now I'm flabbergasted as to what I should put in there. (
  • The Electric Blue Jack Dempsey is a rewarding specimen for the aquarist as it is moderately easy to keep as long as the aquarium is maintained. (
  • They can be relatively easy to care for as long as you understand the basic requirements of goldfish and you implement them. (
  • Also occasionally feed the fish snails to prevent its teeth from growing too long. (
  • Axolotls are fairly long-lived, surviving 10 to 15 years on a diet of mollusks, worms, insect larva, crustaceans, and some tiny fish. (
  • A goldfish that is properly cared for can live for well over five years (40 years plus max) and grow to around 12 inches long, 32cm (4 inches average, 10cm). (
  • In addition, these fish are hardy and live long enough. (
  • Breeding aquarium fish has long ceased to be a children's hobby or adult hobby. (

  • It is similar to the common goldfish, except slightly smaller and slimmer, and is mainly distinguished by its long deeply forked tail. (
  • The Albino Long Fin Pleco is found in the rivers and tributaries of Paraguay and has extremely long flowing fins. (
  • However, now Angelfish are mostly captive-bred and with selective breeding, now you can find various colour patterns and long-finned varieties of these fishes. (
  • As a forager rather than a hunter the Goldfish has a long and streamlined body, but not one that is suited to overly speedy swimming. (
  • These have been bred for a long tail fin, which in larger specimens may be half the length of the whole body. (
  • The fact that they have a long lifespan and are easy to take care of makes them one of the most popular freshwater fish. (
  • Being native to subtropical regions, the Taiwanese Bitterling can tolerate cooler water temperatures much like goldfish and other members of the Cyprinidae Family. (

  • The art of breeding the finest specimens of goldfish first started in Asia and was later picked up in Europe. (
  • Wild caught specimens originate from Central America, Guatemala, and Southern Mexico but hobbyists usually will be buying a farm raised fish. (
  • Wild caught specimens are even more aggressive than captive raised fish. (
  • The fins have a tinge of orange on the tips with some specimens having a red dorsal rim. (
  • 10 gallon complete setups with gravel and adding fish later should not cost over $ 75 dollars. (

  • Starting this hobby does come with some choices, however - namely, the type of fish you are going to use to stock your tank. (
  • When you are trying to decide which fish to stock your first tank with, there are several things you need to consider. (
  • Considering that many freshwater fish prefer to be in schools of at least six fish, the price of adding fish to your tank can really add up. (
  • However, our list of beginner fish does limit fish to about under a foot at adult size so that your beginner fish will not outgrow your starter tank. (

  • Do not buy fish float on the surface or have to work at getting to the bottom of the tank. (
  • If there is a sick fish in a tank the others may be sick as well. (
  • If you do find a fish in a tank with others that are ill treat the well fish as you would the sick ones which you did not purchase. (
  • When you bring colorful freshwater fishes into your home tank, you can notice that the visual appeal of your tank will go up by several notches. (
  • The Green Terror Cichlid, too, is one such fish that can bring life to your tank by just being present in them. (
  • If you are an aquarist, it is recommended that you get the green terrors to your home tank, only if you have considerable experience in handling aggressive fishes before . (
  • You have to keep these points in mind when you are creating the ideal ambiance for these fishes in your home tank. (
  • I used to have a large tank full of goldfish. (
  • Bubble eyed goldfish deflate I am new to this whole fish tank stuff. (
  • I have 5 different fish in the tank with it, do you think he got attacked? (
  • It's best when asking for help to give all the info you have, for instance the different fish in the tank so I can gain a better understanding of what the situation is. (
  • Or another thing it could be cause by the fish being severely stressed, was your tank cycled when you placed the goldfish in there? (
  • Also goldfish are pretty messy and require a fairly large tank. (
  • I suggest you set up a Quarantine tank to move this fish out of the tank and separate it from the other fish. (
  • And you may need to keep a heater in the tank in the winter to protect them from colder temperatures because they are not as strong as the common goldfish. (
  • If you keep a tank for your goldfish, you can create a tightly controlled, ideal environment for breeding. (
  • That means a 100-liter tank should move 1000 liters per hour, in order to compensate for the waste these fish produce. (
  • I am going to switch my 3 guppies, 3 white cloud minnows and 4 inch goldfish into the tank. (
  • I was wondering if I could put just one angel in the tank with the other fish I have. (

  • If you do not move the fish in a big tank, then you need to find a place to live or to the Petstore. (
  • It is not an aggressive eater and may end up getting bullied by other fish when you introduce food into the tank. (
  • If you overfeed the fish, the uneaten food remains in the fish tank and begins to decay. (
  • Make sure that the tank has ample plants and caves for the fish to hide. (
  • Use plastic plants, as the brackish water in the fish tank will not sustain most living plants. (
  • They do best in cooler water around the low 70s.Goldfish are however social animals and would benefit from having a tank mate. (
  • It is not a fish for a community tank but it can easily hold its own in a larger aquarium of mixed African Mbunas. (
  • [12] At the time, a goldfish named "Goldie", kept as a pet in a tank in Folkestone , England, was measured as 15 inches (38 cm) and over 2 pounds (0.91 kg), and named as the second largest in the world behind the Netherlands fish. (
  • Bettas tolerate all other fish well and can be put in a community tank set up. (
  • Do not only check the fish that you are interested in but also those that share its tank. (
  • In fact, any fish that is non-aggressive and can tolerate an aquarium containing water with high temperatures and low pH/hardness that the discus is accustomed to would do great with discus (read more about the tank requirement of the discus below). (
  • Violet Gobies should not be in a tank with aggressive fish such as Oscars and tiger barbs. (
  • New tank cycle was started and fish were doing fine. (
  • I put the fish back into the big tank with clean chlorine free water. (
  • Be sure to try and figure out a general diagnosis before dumping a lot of medication into the tank, as some meds are toxic dyes that can kill with overdosing (especially to sensitive fish such as tetras and scaleless cats), and some, such as antibiotics, will wreak havoc on your biofiltration and throw your established tank into a new cycle. (
  • Think about when you're feeding your fish at home, do they swim to the top of the tank when they see you? (
  • Think about when you add a new feature to your tank or a new fish. (
  • They are often sold very young, but they grow large pretty quickly and need a large fish tank to house them. (
  • A fish floating at top of the tank but not dead yet (even actively moving around) can be confusing to witness. (
  • Relocate your pet fish to a hospital tank immediately after noticing the odd behavior. (
  • They have the temperament of Rams and will not usually dig up the plants or rearrange the decor in your aquarium, nor will they harass other members of a community tank. (

  • Fish tank in the cake. (
  • I don't think I could eat anything that had been assembled around a fish tank. (
  • If the outside of the tank is covered with lots of dried-in water stains then the store is probably not taking care of the fish. (
  • So we'd advise not buying a fish from that tank no matter how much you are tempted. (
  • This is because fish behaviour in a store tank can be very different once it's in your own tank and settled in. (
  • The pair should be separated for spawning, as the eggs are quickly eaten by other fish in the tank despite attempts by the parents to protect them. (
  • By this time, people outside the imperial family were forbidden to keep goldfish of the gold (yellow) variety, yellow being the imperial color . (

  • The pectoral fin spine can be serrated. (
  • Pectoral fin. (
  • They are situated in between the anal and pectoral fin. (
  • My own preference is the pectoral fin muscle, as the drug seems to be quickly taken up with little or no "blowback" in which the antibiotic comes out of the site as the needle is withdrawn. (
  • If you are using multiple injections over a period, it is best to alternate the pectoral fin muscle used. (
  • Intramuscular injection made into the pectoral fin muscle using approx. (
  • Behind rigid, mother-of-pearl gill covers, the narrow pectoral fins rotate freely, allowing the fish to maneuver, stop, and swim in reverse. (

  • Or rather, while some are infrequently traded, others are simply not recognised as being brackish water fishes. (
  • A book I've written, The Everything Aquarium Book , addresses the care of brackish water fishes in detail. (
  • If you have an aquarium or goldfish bowl, you need to have water test kits around. (
  • Even though your goldfish aquarium water may be crystal clear, doesn't always mean that your water quality is perfect. (
  • Never rely on clear water being safe for fish. (
  • Test often, perform regular maintenance such as water changes and have equipment working properly will be the first step to proper goldfish care and eliminating chance of black spots on your fish called Melanophore Migration. (
  • Bitterlings are very active fish that will also feed upon insect larvae and will help in controlling mosquitos in the water garden. (
  • in fact, you can just keep one goldfish in a bowl of water if that's what you want to do. (
  • They are freshwater fish so you don't need warm water with heaters and ventilation systems, which also means they won't expire if the electricity should accidentally go off. (
  • Guide to marine supplies, putting the aquarium together, cycling the aquarium water and adding fish! (
  • Floating is most often caused by the fish eating dry food which absorbs water from the digestive tract and causes digestive problems of which floating is an indication. (
  • Over time this will damage the swim bladder and the fish will be unable to 'hover' in the water (at this point the fish is called a sinker). (
  • Along the back wall are the power filter and heater, which maintain clear water at a constant 75°F. The pH rarely fluctuates from 7.0, an ideal level for a community aquarium. (
  • They are necessary to keep the fish balanced while in the water. (
  • Hi Ray, This is practically all I did as a graduate student (I guess I must have done something else to get my degreebut it didn't feel like it).You can raise daphnia in the water where you find them but this probably would not be ideal for aquarium use. (
  • Just rinse them after this and put them in water (some aquarium water would most likely be fine). (
  • If you live anywhere where there is fish-free, standing water there is a good chance you can find Daphnia or at least ephipia. (
  • Again, used aquarium water would probably have enough nutrients for fairly good algal growth. (
  • Bacterial diseases generally result from fish stress due to adverse water quality conditions, habitat clean-outs, predators. (
  • These fish are biologically programmed to begin breeding when the water gets warm and food becomes abundant. (
  • In the wild it is usually found in swampy habitats including brackish water marshes along the southeastern coast of South America as well as several offshore islands including Trinidad where this catfish is a highly prized food fish. (
  • The water conditioner clears the tap water of harmful heavy metals and chlorine (which are toxic to fish). (
  • Adequately house the fish and keep the water clean and queues in the week partial water changes regrowth. (
  • It is advised to find a filter which has a water flow between 4-5 times the volume of your aquarium. (
  • During the colder period the fish do not require much food and the water level can be allowed to fall without additional top-ups. (
  • Like other fish and many other aquatic organisms, goldfish breathe by extracting oxygen from the water that flows through their gills. (
  • Overcrowding and unhygienic water conditions will render fish more prone to infections. (
  • The careful and gradual process of introducing fish into a new environment without sudden changes in water chemistry and temperature. (

  • Yellow goldfish are very hardy and easy to care for, perfectly suitable for indoor or outdoor fish keeping, with an ideal water temperature around 70F. (
  • The front part of these fins are soft and perfect for precise positions and effortless movements in the water as opposed to fast swimming. (
  • Neon Tetra fish prefer soft, slightly acidic water for optimum health conditions, and avoid strong currents to help them swim easily. (
  • All fish have immune systems and will protect themselves when the water quality is excellent and consistent. (
  • If you see any of the fish with fungus like growths then move on because chances are it is caused by something in or left untreated in the water. (
  • This means that the population of discus is rapidly decreasing in the wild due to unsuitable water conditions and if the situation does not improve, this aesthetically appealing fish will soon face the threat of extinction. (
  • Some of the more common causes are stress, bad water conditions, live food that have been infected by the pathogens or already infected fish without quarantining it. (
  • If in doubt, be prepared to do a water change to relieve the fish of the osmotic stress caused by the salt. (
  • A weekly water change of atleast 25% is needed for this fish. (
  • Halfbeaks inhabit estuaries and other areas of fluctuating salinity, and, while sometimes kept in fresh water, are at their best in brackish water aquariums. (
  • They have a compressed body with a flat area from the dorsal fin to the mouth which allows them to move along just under the surface of the water. (
  • The fish shoots several droplets of water, quickly correcting any error in trajectory and aim to knock prey from the safety of the canopy to the water's surface where the fish devours its meal. (
  • indicate reduced swimming efficiency following adipose fin removal across multiple flow velocities leading to a hypothesis that the adipose fin may act as a precaudal flow sensor when swimming in turbulent water. (
  • We have to say at once that the group of the fishes represents in a generic sense, the first genuine and proper biologic expression of vertebrates, from which have later come the Amphibia, the first class of vertebrates capable to develop an amphibiotic life, that is, both in water and on the main land. (
