Default What fish to get next? MISSING FISH RE-APPEARS!!!!

My fish are doing really well, have had them a week now.

Only thing is as of yesterday one of my tiger Barbs are missing, no idea where it went, one of them looked kinda sick, lighter colored than the other two when i got them, and it is now just gone

Cant find it anywhere in the tank.

So I have a ghost shrimp, some sort of snail that makes the odd appearance that came on one of the plants, my pictus catfish and the two tiger barbs.

What fish should I get next?

Should I get another tiger barb so the two I have dont fight?

I have no idea,

died other fish ate it

died other fish buried it?




I looked last night and was moving the plants around with my net and I cant find it anywhere,,,,,,

I think I might get another two tiger barbs so I will have 5 as it seems the two now are like trying to bite eachother and I was told to keep an uneven number of them to stop fighting.


Just need to know what other school fish thats non aggressive I can get that wont just get killed by my current fish....

I don't understand why you're having so much trouble with tropical fish. Do the people at the fish store know anything, or are you going to a giant petco or something like that? when I was like 12 and had a fishtank, I would go ask the guy who ran the shop all kinds of questions and he was very helpful. those guys should be able to tell you which are aggressive, which co-exist naturally, etc.

god Damnit Sean.... *sigh*


i like to consider my self a fish keeping expert, i have 4 tanks, a 10 gallon, a 2.5 gallon, a 30 gallon and a 150 gallon tank.


your last fish thread i read and i knew they were going to die.

so, since pictus cat fish are fuggin awesome, i will help you...

first of all...

what size tank do you have?
what kind and how many plants do you have?
what kind of light do you have? incandescent or florescent
do you know the PH of your water?
do you know the ammonia level of your water? any ammonia is bad FYI
what filter are you using?
do you have a heater? if so how many watts?
what kind of substrate do you have?
What are you feeding them?
do you have any bottom dwellers ( except for the pictus? )



Lets start with that.
