I suppose it could be just that the warmouth doesn't think dominating the angel is worth the trouble. He'll chase the longear, so he's not submissive, but I guess he might just not care too much...

Seeing what appears to be cleaning behavior in a fish that doesn't clean.

Lately, I've seen something a bit odd. My angelfish will slowly approach one of my sunfish, and the sunfish will respond by tilting itself head-down and going pale. The angelfish will then closely...

Given that they live in a geothermal environment and are extraordinarily endangered (less than a hundred left, I believe), I don't think anyone has any.

It could be possible that you have a psycho fish. If he'll beat up any other checkers that you put in, he must not want any more checkers, so it may be best to just leave him on his own unless he...

Other evil checkered barbs? They'd probably be calmer with more tankmates, and if not, the numbers will distribute aggression.

Floating plants will help, but if you have anything less than a complete hood, you're eventually going to come home to find that some of your fish have ended up on the floor.

Their pectoral fins are quite wide, and I've heard of them jumping and landing 5+ feet from the tank because their fins actually give them a tiny bit of lift. I assume this is meant to let them leap...

Nerites lay eggs, but the eggs can't hatch in freshwater. They're noninvasive. They also come in quite a few varieties- you can get them yellow, brown, and black, and you can get striped ones, ones...

They stick to the surface and pretty much never swim down. As long as you have floating food, they're fine, and they ignore everything below their level. They jump, though, and they WILL find any...

There are no plecos that are small enough for that tank. All are too large and messy. Get a couple of nerite snails instead, they'll clean the glass.

You are most likely going to need a much larger tank to keep that clown loach. They get at least 10" long and should be kept in groups of at least 5.

Pygmy or dwarf cories are probably your best bet, pandas need a bit more space. Corydoras nannus also look a bit too big. You're trying to stock a very small tank, honestly, your options are limited.

Since they're captive-bred, perhaps ask the breeder what he's keeping them in, parameter-wise. I'd assume something a bit less acidic than their wild habitat, though it does vary somewhat depending...

That's a bit like trying to train crocodiles not to eat zebras. If they're well-fed, maybe they won't, but the second they get a craving- boom, casualty.

Eventually you end up with a bunch of mud-colored shrimp. You can if you want to, sure, but the resultant mutts won't be very brightly colored. Some will have subtle nice colors, though.

Rainbows are best kept in large tanks and reasonably large groups. They're kinda large and they're very, very active. They charge around and will probably scare your other fish.

The question still stands: why did you let the tank get so disgusting?
How did you not know that the heater was in there? Why don't you know what kind of cichlids those are? Is that even your tank?

If you lose them in a year or so, don't be concerned about disease- they aren't very long-lived in the first place. They look to be adult size, they could be fairly old already.

They'll have shortened lifespans (higher temperature means higher metabolism), but if they're doing well, you can keep them where they are.

White clouds mountain minnows. Coldwater fish best kept in goldfish-temperature water in groups of at least 6. Best give them to someone with a goldfish tank or just coldwater fish.
