    By the sounds of it you have too many uncompatible fish in tanks that are too small. Do some research on your different fish, check their minimum tank size, water requirements and suitable tank mates. You may need to rehome some of your fish or return them to the pet store and purchase more compatible fish and remember not to overtook your tanks. The overall outcome for your fish will be so much better. They will live longer, happier lives and will be less likely to become stressed and contract diseases. Good luck

    Plecos grow large and should be in large tank. I have never kept one before but i think they need to be in 75 gallons or more. Also fancy goldfish should be kept with only otheir fancy goldfish in 40 gallons or more. Also goldfish should NOT be kept with tropical such as beta. You are better off putting the Betta in a regular5 gallon tank of his/her own with a small snail or 2 shrimp is you want variety.

    Hi gema :) i need some help. :(I witnessed my pleco attacking my fantail goldfish is that normal? I thought they are normally peaceful fish who get along with other fish. This happened when i gave it a algae wafer to eat and the goldfish wanted some of it. Now both my fantails have white fuzzy fungus on them :(I i poured some melafix into the 20goldfish gallon tank I have them and my baby betta in( btw the betta is in a breeder container attached in the tank. Also I already removed the "aggressive " pleco out and placed his bad butt in the ten gallon tank wit the other pleco and a tiger barb and a older betta. Hope they will be ok *__* anything im doing wrong? Please help me
