    They both are cichlids, but the buttikoferi is not in the same genus as the frontosa. It is more related to the tilapia you'd find in a supermarket.

    The erosions look like hole in the head to me. Typically a fleeing fish will be wounded on the tail end.

    Looks like a mature Heterotilapia buttikoferi.
    Big, aggressive species.

    Hard to say. More or less all cories have an elevated position in relation to other fish for me.

    If I had to pick, here are my favorites, in no particular order:

    1. Corydoras hasbrosus

    Agreed with Knightia/Firefly. Albino fish may just as well look like that because they don't have any pigments obscuring their blood vessels, but at this severity (especially if the condition has...

    Top one is a jaguar cichlid. Second might be a dovii.
    Third am working on, last one appears to be an auchenipterid catfish.

    I don't think belong in unheated tanks.
    They will survive because they are hardy, but all do best in higher temps. I used to forget occasionally to plug the heater back in after a water change. I...

    The differences could be due to the fact that most aquarium hygrophila is grown underwater, whereas these plants may only have recently been submerged.
    I think it might be H. Costata, which...

    Geographical location is important. I googled Tweeds heads and that is in Australia. This might be quite interesting. I am pretty familiar with most aquarium plants and some wild North American...

    Did it stop/clear up after some time? Freshly cleaned filter media will have lots of dislodged particles that come spewing out when the filter is turned on.

    goldfish are not too difficult as long as you give them enough space - they are pretty big compared to most aquarium fish.

    I highly doubt you could (or should) attempt to "cut" tempered glass with a heated knife (or anything for that matter).
    The vals - if they grow - will get quite messy in a 2.5 gallon. even the...

    If the fish won't eat, then don't feed it. clean water is more important to a sick fish than food. If it is a swim bladder issue, not feeding for a few days may resolve it although looking at your...

    Don't use the AC 50. There is no such thing as too much filtration, but there certainly is such a thing as too much current. An AC 20 would be a much better choice, especially with the flow...

    Some people have experienced a fish just randomly going berserk, but that doesn't seem common. Usually if there is aggression you will have noticed it long before an actual casualty occurs.

    Welcome to the community.

    Make sure you research the size of any species you find interesting. Your current suggestions
    all need (sometimes significantly) larger tanks than the one you have.
