Care of Fish

Parent Category: Fish
Fish are fascinating creatures to watch. Keeping them in an environment that makes it easy for us to observe them is a challenge with many questions. Ask your questions here.
one gallon is 4 cups of water u can do rest of the maths
The width of females are wider than males, and the male's barbels(whiskers) are also larger.
pretty all types of cichlids do. they might like laser pointers, like a cat does
They do not show certain actions that inform you that fishes areabout to lay eggs. The fish's abdomen will get bigger, and the malefish can get aggressive at times. Gold barbs scatter their eggswherever they please, being egg-scatterers.
Yes, you can! It also depends on the accessories that you have inyour tank. Research the required items/temperature of water foreach fish. :) Hope I helped.
... if the guppies are big enough ;)
About 5 to 7 years in the wild.
That depends entirely upon the species. Some species are actually impossible to determine unless you catch them in the act of breeding.
A carnivore snail will eat meat or eat other snails and a herbivore snail will not eat meat and will only eat vegetables.
no!, as their name suggests they live in salt water.
Of course they can all fish have gills which allow them to breath in water.
mostly smaller fish like mollies guppies snails and otocinclus
yes.you can teach angelfish tricks like play dead,stand,ect.(and some more tricks)
Not so easily, but it's extremely hard to breed as well the fish have no gender unless you put two in a tank they will sort it out themselves usually the larger clown fish
keep in mind some fish change gender after matting so it would behard or rare
Mosquito Larvae, aquatic crustaceans, worms. They will also eatflakes, algae granules, bloodworms, crushed pellets, brine shrimp,or baby shrimp.
It is about to die or it is old or weak
Keep them in their own large tank with only a few inches of water.Try to feed them a variety of foods. Change half of their water.Add about 10 degree cooler water to trigger the hatching. Bewarned, they will eat their own eggs/tadpoles. I hope this helps.
No they just get weak
Because they are still newborn
I think they come from krill,right i don't think so
When they cant swim and they don't eat wait or is that a gubby
FIrst of all that is gross and second of all nothing really if youactually cook it if you dont it is like if yo ate worms
I suppose it would help if there was at least one completesentence, And also if they mentioned how many kilograms motheractually bought. But to read the question it makes no sense.
You can get them at local hermit crab ( pet stores ).. You can get it at stores that sell hermit crabs.. ~~. Commercial brand foods for hermit crabs aren't good for them. Feed them a variety of food that you would eat. Food that you buy in the store has harmful preservatives and does not have enough...
From 1 to over 150, depending on the size and age of the female.
Some fish have only a few offspring, some lay tens of thousands of eggs each time.
The babies were too large and they got stuck at delivery time?
How long does what last? The tank lasts as long as it isn'tcracked, The filter lasts as long as it is cleaned, and you must doefficient research on the specific fish you have in mind for itslifespan. And by the way, this site doesn't count as efficientresearch.
im pretty sure that not all crabs eat hermit crab food. unless that u mean that do all hermit crabs eat hermit crab food? then the answer to that is yes. all hermit crabs eat hermit crab food.
Cichlids will do the best eating something like New Life Spectrum (also you may see it listed as NLS). It can be a little bit more expensive than the crappy flake food, but if you want to see good color and health go with NLS. ALSO!! NLS provides alot of food per purchase.. so you dont get robbed on...
yes they can eat a lot, scrup, crackers, but its better just togive them the fish food
when they get scared they move fast.
Other goldfish, bottom feeding fish (minus the Chinese algae eater)and some live-bearers. There are some others too so do some goodresearch to find them. :)
I recommend doing a 50% water change once a week. That way the algae/bacteria doesnt get over the limit causing diseases to your fish but still helps the fish survive. Fish need Algea and bacteria to survive. So I wouldn't do a full tank clean to often. But make sure your tank isn't close to direct...
it really depends on the size of your tank and the capacity of your filter....i have a 10 gallon tank and a 10-20 gallon filter so i clean mine once every 2 weeks...if you want your tank to remain crystal clear all the time, clean it once a week....mine gets a little bit cloudy by the end of 2 weeks...
First of all, dory fish is not a kind of fish. Dory is a hippo tang. They are a salt water fish just like in finding nemo.
\nGuppies can take up to two weeks.
what species of fish? every one is different. some are very easy like guppies, some are a little more challenging like tetras, and some are completely impossible such as oscars. if its a goldfish, you can't sex them until they're over a year old and only during the spawning season in spring,...
In most cases, no. I cannot name any exceptions myself. However Ido know that the Molly fish is a freshwater fish that can live insaltwater.
The fry inside the eggs will likely die and if they do hatch, theywill probably die in the first few days or weeks.
No, I wouldn't recommend it. Bettas can be very aggressive, hencethe name Siamese fighting fish.
Flying fish live in the bottom layer of the ocean.
There are a number of meanings - Yin-Yang, Male/Female, Day/Night, Water/Fire, Sun/Moon. It all stems from philosophy of taoism.
Gouramis are beautiful! Their color depends on the type, but theyare all pretty similar looking otherwise. They are tall and thinand have wide dorsal and pelvic fins but a relatively small caudalfin. They have a superior mouth and two long feeler-like rays atthe front of their bodies.
It is not recommended to allow Axolotls (mexican walking fish) to come out of water as you will force them to metamorp into salamanders , this is not good for the axolotls health ,the stress alone can kill them. If they do survive the process their life span is severely shortened as is the...
They keep chasing each other because they like to have fun and theylike to not have energy.
1 tablespoon of aquarium salt per 5 gallons, so slightly less than 1/4 tablespoon.
I will tell you in a few steps how to take care of goldfish (I take care of them in a 5 gallon aquarium too!) below: How to Take Care of Goldfish: . First, get your 5 gallon tank. . Wash your tank thoroughly. Do not use soap! just clean it with running, clean, warm water. . Assemble your filter,...
if its a 20 gallon tall, commonly 24" x 12" x 16 if its a 20 gallon extra tall, commonly 20" x 10" x 24" if its a 20 gallon Long, commonly 30" x 12" x 13" measurements are length x width x height in inches exact measurements may vary slightly depending on the manufacturer due to glass...
Alot of times when a betat fish is happy you will see something like spit bubbles at the top if it's angry or upset you wont see these also you might see its side fins around the head go forward
Water would flow into its cells because it is in a hypotonicsolution... and it would die.
The female will become very round and swollen with eggs. The male will develop white spots called "tubercles" on his gills and pectoral fins.
\nDanio fish like to swim on the top, and they like to swim back and forth all of the time( mine do)
Goldfish cannot live properly in a 5 gallon tank. Goldfish need 20 gallons for the first fish, and 10 gallons per additional fish after. It's not simply about their size potential, which is big, but the fact that they produce a lot of waste. Guppies and goldfish are not compatible as they have...
Yes. It's possible. But you must wait until the female is ready tomate once again for another season.
Usually the filters you can buy will specify what size (in gallons)the filter is meant for.
Your guppy could be very old and is life is probably catching up tohim. His final days might be coming. I may be wrong too. Your guppycould also be sick. Have you been cleaning your fish tank? Have youbeen feeding him too much food? These are questions you could askyourself when questioning your...
just leave 2 mails and 1 female guppy in the tank with no other fish in the tank at all times. -Shocker . There should be 3 females to one male. If there are too many males, the females will get stressed out. I would recommend a larger fish tank than a half gallon. Maybe a 10 gallon tank. Remember...
My snails lived up to 9 months. They were eaten by the Angelfish.
Mermaids have the upper bodies of women and fish tails.
Not to humans but will probably attack some other fish
Depends on the fish. If its a Goldfish, Zebra Danio, cichlid, betta or others like them then yes, but mollies, platys, Guppies, and many others are live bearers and the fry are born free swimming. meaning that A) you can actually see them and they look like fish, and B) they are born able to swim...

no a fish has the memory spam of 3 seconds if it tells itself to stop eating it won't remember to do it
:) Veggie matter! :) Whether in pellets, flakes, or just rawvegetables (best) it doesn't matter! A Fightn' Fish Fact- peas(with their outer shell removed) are goodfor the swim bladder! ;)
This is for betta fish cause they are the only fish that can stay in a bowl but you can use it for other fish not that you should put an other fish in a bowl : When you first get the fish clean out the bowl (make sure there's no dust or anything). How to clean the bowl the first time: At the...
Like most other creatures, an axolotl will flee when in danger. When cornered, they will bite/snap at their assailants.
x-ray fish are called x-ray fish because you can see through them
yes because like the bottles the glue wont get out so it wontdamage the water so the glue around the fish tank wontdamage the fish
The African dwarf frog can indeed live with fish in a five gallonaquarium. BUT BEWARE!!! dwarf frogs may eat your fish small enoughto fit in it's mouth. so i recommend Platy and live-bearers ascompanions.
To my knowledge, live bearers! Have fun! ;)
No, they do not.
I do not believe so. I have never heard of or seen this occurring naturally. No, this is not possible, guppies can only mate with other guppies. Actually, yes. The offspring are all sterile males. So you can't get any further fish from the mating. Do not be missled. Guppies and Mollies are...
My Angelfish love to eat ghost shrimp.
No, they are not acceptable tankmates. Guppies are tropical fish and require higher temperatures than are likely to be comfortable for a goldfish. In addition, the goldfish will eventually grow large enough to swallow the guppies.
yes, but you should plan on keeping more than just ONE tetra.Tetras are schooling fish, and they probably wont breed in yourtank(they may, but they probably wont), so i recommend at leastfive.
I have a pet fish and they do make sounds. I once leaned against the glass and heard quite sounds don't worry if you can't hear them. :P They either make, PlopPlopPlop or better yet, BlopBlopBlopBlop
The male first inserts his gonopodium into the female's cloaca, and fertilizes the eggs internally. Guppies are live bearers, so the female gives birth to live young that immediately fend for themselves.
all fish that labyrinth organs. (Bettas, Gouramis, Corydoras, etc.)Though many other hobbyists argue against keeping fish in bowlsbecause of the lack of space and cleanliness. But from my research,Ive found that if you change a fish bowl's water once a week, thefish would be fine. But I personally...
They are tropical fish. But are found to be more tolerable of temperature. If the surounding air temperature is kept reasonable and therefore the bowls water is kept a reasonable temperature then it is possible, but most of these types of fish grow rather large in time.
Sailfin mollies are near the bottom of the food chain. Some predators include the giant water bug, large mouth bass, raccoon, American alligator, and the bull frog.
