Need help with my Firemouths
I have 2 firemouths in a 30 gallon long tank got them a little over a week ago.They have lots of hiding spots in tank with three large caves.I ve started getting a little worried bout them because one is getting pretty agressive towards the other.The one that is getting picked on colors are a little more bright than other but i think it is due to stress because they were both the same color when i put them in the tank. I was just wondering if i should seperate them or just wait it out any advice will help thanks alot
need a little advice
Just got 2 firemouths a little over a week ago have them in a 30 gallon long tank 3 foot long.My question is that one keeps beating up on the other and not for sure if i should seperate them or wait it out they have lots of hiding spots and rock caves
30 gallon 2 firemouths striped peacock eel
29 gallon opaline gourami gold gourami 2 silver mollies
Do you know if you have a pair (male/female) or two males? If you read our profile (click on Firemouth) you will note that males are naturally territorial all the time, and if both fish are males one is going to be picked on continually in a small space.
BTW, I combined your two posts into this one thread, since the issue was the same. And, welcome to Tropical Fish Keeeping forum.
thanks for your help im pretty sure they are both males dont really know what to do with them right now i thought the 30 gallon long would be good for the two but i guess it might be too small any ideas on what i could i thought about putting one in my gourami tank but im pretty sure that wont work either
he will kill your gourami for sure
fire mouths are very aggressive fish and will prey on smaller fish
thanks for the answer the gourami are in a 29 gallon one gold and one opaline with two mollies i did try to put the more agressive firemouth in there and it didnt work they didnt like the firemouth at all keep chasing him all over the place i eneded up donating my other firemouth to a friend who has a 300 gallon cichlid tank so he will have a happy home. i kinda have a empty tank any suggestion on what i should put with my fire mouth in my thirty gallon long. thanks for the feedback
those black ruby barbs are cool just have no idea where i would find them lol
