i have a tall 29 gallon tank.
i have 2 gold gouramis and 1 blue gouramis..i believe 2 are males with 1 female. also i have several random feeder minnows as well.
i have maybe 2 small lillypod lookin plants from my outside pond in there also.
i use 2 in tank whisper filters along with a bubbler.
i've had this tank since like last year sometime.
i keep the light on durin the night (cause i don't like the dark =P) and turn it off durin the day..it doesn't have any natural light really.
my ph was around 6.8 to 7.0 last time i checked..and though my amonia had been high i did a 20% water changed to fix it.
i added a little tiger oscar almost a week ago and he acted fine for about three days...but then he started just layin on the bottom not eatin and swimin backwards and all..i got my water checked and found the amonia problem..and did my water change but my oscar still continued to act weird. so i moved him to my sisters 10 gallon tank and he is doin fine now.
the oscar had fought some with my gouramis..but only for the first day..they got along fine after and none of the fish did any damage to one another..my oscar won the little battle..he had my goumramis pretty whiped..even the big grumpy male.
all my other fish in the 29 gallon tank are fine..they never acted funny @ all.
the 10 gallon tank has sevral feeder minnows and one of those little lillypod lookin plants
it has an old filter..idk wat kind
why wont my oscar do well in my bigger tank?
i'm plainin to wait a little while and make sure he is healthy and then try and put him back in my bigger tank..idk
i plan to get a bigger tank for when my little oscar grows...but if i can't keep him in a 29gallon tank how am i suppose to keep a 55 gallon or more tank goin =[ it would break my heart if somthin happened to that little fish...
