New from Alabama/Long Island

Hi everyone, this is the only forum I am actually interested it. I have joined other ones before and never really gotten in to them. I am looking foward to meeting new people and leaning new tips and knowledge about my fish. I currently have a 30gallon with a blue crawfish named artichoke, peacock bass (lukanani) Mike Iaconelli, and a tiger oscar named tiger woods II. I have always been fascinated with life under the water and I think aquariums make people happy, I know taking care of mine makes me happy nways. Coming soon are pictures and soon enough maybe I will set up my web cam. Feeding time here gets exciting. If you read this, thanks and I look foward to talking to ya'll.

thanks for the tip about the crawfish/fish problem and as of right now the crawfish is scared of the fish cause he is smaller and the fish can not eat him yet. We purchased our fish at about 1" in size and plan to accomodate them to their size by buying bigger tanks if needed. The oscar alwasy ate minnows/grass shrimp and now goldfish.

Welcome to the forum!

The blue lobster will eat small fish that it can catch, but in your case you have the reverse to worry about as your fish grow larger. You wouldn't want them eating that expensive crayfish! Oscars need a minimum 75g tank, and peacock bass will need something much larger, on the order of 250g or more as they can grow to over two feet in length. The bass and the oscar may get along but both are aggressive fish so watch for fighting in the future. A good cichlid pellet (I like Omega One cichlid pellets) are a better staple diet than goldfish, which can cause numerous health problems. If you want to feed live feeder fish to your pets, I recommend setting up a second tank and breeding your own livebearers. Livebearers are generally a healthier diet than goldfish, and breeding them yourself ensures healthy, disease-free feeders and cuts back on costs.

with you saying that, i figure your wanting more knowledge about "your" fish and the best way to get that is if other people give you their opinion. its then 100% up to you if you want to follow what they say but dont jump on people for giving their opinion when it looks to me like you wanted it, you just didnt want to hear what they had to say.
