Hello everyone I am new to this forum and I have a couple of questions and a few fish I want to identify if possible.
I am also new to Aquariums as a whole as this is the first tank I've owned after buying it from a friend and my interest in tropical fish has grew from there, so if I sound like too much of a novice, that's because I am one
I have a Juwel Trigon 190 Aquarium which consists of Malawi's and two other fish that I would like identifying, it has been set up for around 8 weeks now and I have had the water checked at my local Aquarium store and all is good according to them.
When I bought the tank from a friend he also included around 6 Malawis with it but I was told the size of the tank required a lot of more fish so I went out and bought another 6, sadly I have had a few fish die on me since starting the tank which is now starting to worry me as I actually went out yesterday and bought 5 more Malawi's and 2 have them have died already? The one's that have died have been a orange and a white colour (I will post pictures below) which I bought to add more colour to the tank, and now they have died within 1 day, could there be a reason for this?
I have taken a few pictures which will give you an idea of the set up, I would also like some advice on how to smarten the tank up because I am not a fan of the cheap ornaments and fake plants and rocks etc, even pictures of peoples own set ups would give me a lot of ideas.
Also since I have this tank I have not done a water change or filter change so if I could get some advice on how to maintain my tank that would be great.
Here are the fish:
(these are the two fish that have died since yesterday?!?)
There are a few more fish which look exactly like number 3 & 7 so I thought there was no point in taking even more pictures, plus it's hard to take good pictures when they're constantly moving
I have also noticed the white spots on the fish number 9 (need to know the name of this fish and number 5 please) is there anything I should be worried about? If so, what can I do to cure it?
Help and advice would be great as I'm a beginner and I need to start learning from somewhere!
