Freshwater tropical fish to Put together

Keeping Snakeheads in Aquariums

Snakeheads are known by many names, including Frankenfish, Channa and Monster fish. They are popular aquarium species, but require large aquariums since they grow very big. The largest Snakehead species can become up to one metre long, and the other species will also reach a considerable size which can make them hard to keep for many aquarists. If you do not have a very large aquarium, you must make sure that you buy some of the smallest Snakehead species. You should refrain from buying a Snakehead if your fish food budget is small, since they need a lot of food, preferably live fish. Adult Snakeheads are territorial, and will often prove impossible to keep together unless the aquarium is large enough for each individual to claim its own territory.

The different Snakehead species will all have their own requirements, but all Snakeheads prefer planted aquariums with plenty of hiding spaces. Plants are important if you want your Snakeheads to spawn, since most Snakehead species are plant spawners. To make the setup safe for the Snakehead, you should secure all decorations firmly and place the rocks directly on the glass bottom of the aquarium. Do not keep your Snakehead with any fish that could be considered prey. Any fish that is smaller than 2/3 of the Snakehead's size will most likely be eaten. If the fish is too large to swallow, the Snakehead will simply eat chunks of it and consume it that way.

Feeder fish arent taken care of very well

by sibelover

Throughout their lives. They normally are kept all packed together and are under tremendous stress which in most cases causes them to get sick. I was told by a fish wholesaler not to put feeder fish in a tank with my fancy goldfish because they will stress out the other fish and transfer diseases. Plus goldfish creat so much ammonia that you cant keep as many in a tank as you can with tropical freshwater fish. I would only keep 2 in a 10 gallon no matter their size(within reason, obviously large goldfish need more room) and make sure they look healthy when you buy them, if they are laying on the bottom of the tank or are swimming funny dont get...
