    Pet Fish keeps attacking the Filter Outlet

    Yeah, it's a jag :). I can't really afford to add more fish in but I think I can manage to do something with my decorations. Cheers.

    Pet Fish keeps attacking the Filter Outlet

    My filter [sump] is 500 g/h (2000 l/h) and he likes to ride it. (probably that's why he bit the outlet last time) I think I'm okay in the decorations department. I usually hand feed him pellets, and he goes crazy on the food (i'm quite hesitant to feed him live). [Also the airstone came with...

    Pet Fish keeps attacking the Filter Outlet

    He has stopped since, but thanks for the answer. He's usually stimulated by me or by watching drops of water forming on the glass cover falling down. I kind of act on impulse if anything is out of the ordinary so that's why I posted this. My tank is about 140 gallons (560 liters) with bare...

    Pet Fish keeps attacking the Filter Outlet

    So... I have a filter outlet, and my large predatory cichlid [really strong] likes to attack it, and locks onto it with his mouth. How do you stop a fish from doing something? How do you train a fish? That's all I want to know. (If he does this again)

    Fish refuses to eat food

    I'm grateful that everything has gone back to normal. I'll make sure to keep up my (new) water changing schedule and vary his diet (it would be great though if anyone could recommend me specific foods to try). I should have done this sooner but oh well, things happen.

    Fish refuses to eat food

    I'll sure do. I'll feed him tomorrow just to make sure but it seems like I did it.

    Fish refuses to eat food

    Guys he just ate (most of) the food. I think he's getting better. I'm quite happy and I have my hopes up.

    Fish refuses to eat food

    I have really good news everyone! After just 3 days of water changes, I went to get my parameters tested and my nitrates came out to be really low! I'm going to test if he eats soon (in about 2-3 hours is feeding time) [I hope he does]. - Until then - Your help was much appreciated. I'm still...

    Fish refuses to eat food

    The test kit I used was this: (now I know it has to be crap) And the test kit the assistant used was a JBL brand one. For the water conditioner I use sera's Aquatan. I change about 50% of the water monthly (but now I know that's not enough) And I cleaned the filter monthly too.

    Fish refuses to eat food

    The problem seems to be my nitrate levels (100 ppm). My ph is ~8.0 which is due to my tap water quality (I have asked about it and they use basic chemicals to filter it). The shop assistant aslo advised me to clean my substrate and my filter. I also added pothos to my filter to help me with the...

    Fish refuses to eat food

    Thanks a lot! I'll make sure to try my best (as always). I appreciate y'all. I have a filtering aquarium on the right side of the main aquarium, and it has my heater, sponges, wool, and biological media and then the return pump, and I clean it every 1-2 months. I used to feed him bloodworms (and...

    Also sorry if I use improper grammar or seem freaked out. I'm just a 15 year old foreigner who worries too much.
