    BIG problem with Ammonia

    If its going down then thats good. I also didnt fred my fish for two days to minimise further ammonia build up. This worked as my good bacteria wasnt fighting against added waste. Continue doing water changes, dechrolinate your water, stall feeding fish (this wont harm them).

    Figure 8 puffers in a 55 gallon

    Alot of people recommended just 1 because they can kill eachother but it also depends on the size of the tank i guess. I would honestly recommend 1 per 10 gallons or like 40 Litres. For your 55 gallon tank i reckon you can get away with maybe around 4. Also would be good to even out the male and...

    Figure 8 puffers in a 55 gallon

    I used to have 1 in his own 80L tank. I tried bumblee gobies that seemed to do fine. Once i started adding other species such as mollies i found that my puffer started getting stressed and a bit aggressive. Due to figure 8 puffers water conditions not many fish are able to be suitable tank mates...

    Angel Fish red line? Would love some help!!

    Sorry the picture wont load. But with my experience your fish could be stressed, especially if its hiding. About the red line im not to sure what that represents but i would try separating it in either another tank or in a breeding box and see how it goes. If its still not looking good nor...

    Peacock cichlids cross breeding???

    The scientific name for them is cynotilapia afra. There blue with black stripes going downwards and a bit of orange on there head. So any similar cichlid will cross breed?. So for peacocks all females look similar is that why they will crossbreed
