I would love a striped Raphael for my 55g cichlids tank, do you guys think it would work? You're the experts.

And I found two black neon tetra fry in my 10g, there are no other fish in the tank since a bacterial disease killed all the adults. I searched for more fry but couldn't find any more.

I think it could work but personal opinion, this is a nocturnal fish that WILL hide when the tank lights are on. It's very very shy.

You can have mine... I'm trying to get rid of it because I don't like fish that hide constantly even though he is very pretty. Funny thing was nothing in my research mentioned just how much they like to hide.

If local, free. Pay to ship though.

What are you planning to do?


I am having a frustration with my Clownfish. I added in an additional fish and then it seemed the fish had acclimated well and then nowhere to be found the next day. This has happened 2 times before. This fish I added with darkness and watched it carefully and so instead of thinking it is a fish not adjusting, I think I have Killer Clowns.

So the dilema is keep them or replace them.

Also my RFA was hiding behind some rocks for the last week or so and then looked very ill while it was trying to come out. It restuck to a new rock more out to the open. I fed it in between this so don't know now what else to do for it; it seems unwell. I gave it a turkey baster/target feed to see if that helps. I think it wasn't getting much food behind the rocks. It did open a little and seemed to close after the feeding. It is one of my most favorite things in the tank. If it dies I will be extremely sad about it.

Water parameters are good and the temp is at 78F.

Hope the RFA finds the place it likes and colors up!

Honestly, I didn't do anything. I noticed it last night and I just left this morning. I had no meds and I didn't want to medicate a tank I couldn't be there to care for. If he is alright when I come back then I will quarantine and Medicate him.

Trying to decide what fish to take to the LFS to sell. I was just originally taking all my red delta/snakeskin fry, then I figured I'd take both my older guppies too, and my platies, which were a dumb buy, and now I'm thinking about taking up my peppered cories to trade for some Julii but I'm not sure if they have any. Thoughts?
