hello i'm Sinead, new to fish keeping i recently got a 155litre tank for my birthday..and so far we've got
3 upside down catfish
1 black ghost knife fish
2 black lyre tail mollies
1 black molly
5 neon tetras
and i think 3 shrimp (not too sure what kind!)
so far so good, apart from the hiccup we had with a pair of african clawed frogs! they were sold as dwarf frogs! they ended up eating 5 of our neon tetras and killed our male betta :( so this morning they were brought back to the shop. all our fishes seem happy and healthy, now the remaining 5 tetra seem a lot more relaxed!!
i've been getting all my information from here so i thought it was about time i joined :)
Welcome to the Forum!!! We're glad you found us! How long has your tank been running? We want to help you be successful with your new tank, so don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have. Are you testing your tank regularly? Fully cycled?
I'm sorry, I SO do not want to jump all over you for your stocking list. Please take a minute to read up about your Black Ghost Knife. It is going to need a much bigger tank! Just an fyi.
Thanks for joining! Yeah.. .your knife fish is gonna be a beast!
A quirky beast!

quirky indeed, he's getting quite brave now, i'm going to start trying to hand feed him soon, he loved the blood worm earlier on!
Knifefish are extraordinary animals. They use electric fields to navigate and find food. But... you will need at least 90 gallons (~360 liters) to keep him as an adult. And, he will eat all your otherfish. Best wishes to you and your fish!
hello and welcome aboard,hope you'll be very happy
here with us. :-D
welcome to TFK.... sometimes the best lessons in life come from the mistakes we make... and we ALL make them... sorry for your loss... a little study before stocking can go a long way to the sucess of our water borne friends..
