What type of fish is this?
Does anyone know what type of fish this is? I bought it and all of a sudden i started losing fish after a couple weeks one by one. I notice that he is very selfish with food and wondering if he is the one killing off my fish one by one or if bad water is the culprit. He grew double his size in the 2 months i had him.
Someone let me know his fish name so i can read more on him. thanks in advance.
Looks like a pike cichlid(Crenicichla) to me. Pike cichlids are predatory fish.:)
Here are the photos of pike cichlids.:)
I agree with Blue, You have an orange pike. They indeed will eat all your fish.
ok.. this fish is going to go down the toilet sometime this week. i kinda suspected him since he doubled in size and all the other fish are dead with eyeballs eaten out yuck.
why would you do that,
you could get someone to take him off your hands instead.... :D
Take this into consideration. Flushing a fish down a toilet is inhumane. Deep down the toilet, the fish encounters horrible ordeals with chemicals and other sewage wastes.:shake:
I would not blame the fish for what had happened.It is in their nature to be what they are for the sake of survival. My advice is next time you buy a fish, pls do a research and do not follow the advice of your lfs.:) Most lfs are not reliable these days.:shake:
:oops: :oops: :oops:
Yes, i agree with the others, do not flush it down the toilet. It is a cruel and inhumane thing to do. I'm sure a fish shop would be happy to take it off your hands. :)
Its a xingu III
Dont blame the fish because you didnt do proper research before buying a fish. You should take the fish back and since all your other fish are gone just take the tank down and give it to someone that will properly care for the fish.
