  10. feeding my betta mosquito larvae

    Anabantids
    Has anyone here ever fed their mosquito larvae to their Betta ? They love it, and it's fun to watch them chasing the larvae all around the tank. I put out several containers of water in a shady area near my home every year to allow mosquitos to lay their eggs in the water. I check it everyday...
  11. The Electric Blue Jack Dempsey ( ebjd )

    Cichlids
    I thought that it would be fun, though a bit scary, to hand-feed worms to my 8 inch long Electric Blue Jack Dempsey. He is everyone's favorite fish, but he's a bit of a bully. So, he lives in a tank by himself because he eats anything that goes in with him. It's a great video that I am sure you...

    Ancient Fish
    Here is a video of my Polypterus delhezi eating worms. He's only a juvenile about 5 inches long, but he's really cool and has a big appetite. Right now, he's in a 29 gallon tank by himself because he ate all his guppy friends ! Does anyone have any ideas for tank mates that won't hurt him. I...

  17. Suggestions for feeding my female bettas?

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I have three female bettas. One Crowntail and two Veiltail. I am currently feeding them each three pellets in the Am and three in the PM. This seems a bit much from what I have been reading though. Should I cut them back? ( Note I will eventually be buying them brine shrimp as well) They are...
  18. Odd Behavior?

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    My female Crowntail likes to feed off the bottom. Now she eats when she is up top with the others, but after she will go along the bottom and eat off the gravel. Is this abnormal? The other two don't do it, just her.

    I have a 125 gallon tank stocked with assorted African cichlids. They average about 2-3 inches in length right now and there are currently 12 in there. Every week I change out roughly 20-25 gallons. Is this sufficient? Also, I have been feeding them once a day but notice that they always...
