  1. Question Sharky not eating anything.....


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello to all the enthusiastic fish lovers ,

    A problem came up to me and I am here to seek your help.

    I have shifted one Irediscent Shark to a new planted tank with 7 Guppies , 1 Plecko , 2 Red Tailed Sharks and one Snail ( don't know the exact name of the snail ) , few weeks back ( around 2-3 weeks ) , my problem is, The Sharky is not having his food ( Means not in front of me at least and I guess he doesn't know where to find the food !! ) till the shifting was done. but he is in active condition ( wonders how if he is not taking food ) .
    kindly tell is it possible that shark can live energetic without having food for so many days ? Or he is taking it in my absence ? All other mates are happy and playful ( except the Pleco .. he is such a serious fellow. )

    All other water condition is perfect with filter and heater and plants.

    Waiting for your replies ,

    Thank you.

    Size of tank is he in? I assume he will be feeling cramped.
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    The two red tails are probably being overly aggressive with it, and not allowing it to eat. Eat will eventually die, within 1-2 weeks most likely if that is the cause

    This fish will eventually need a large pond to live in. They can grow several feet long.

    Yup, that's a monster fish that should not be in the mainstream pet trade.

    Tank size?

    Errr...just looked at your profile. Is this correct?

    Aquarium 1:
    I have a 30 gallon fresh water aquarium with fantaoled goldfish , lionhead goldfish , plecos , shark....recently have a fry of goldfish.
    30 gallons for 2+ goldfish, plecos (common ones?) and the monster shark. You're mixing temperate and tropical fish too by the way.

    That is a VERY nice tank...I'm assuming they have a way built into the backside of the tank to change the water since there is so much of it, or is it self sustaining?

    20 gal tall -3 paskai's rainbowfish (neons and blue eyes), 8 rasbora het, 1 nerite, 2 pc driftwood 1 with narrowleaf java fern, 1 anubias, grasslike background plants, star shaped foreground plants, 2 mossballs

    10 gal shrimp tank planted with java fern on driftwood, star shaped foreground plants, mossball, dwarf baby tears. cherry, ninja, algae eating, and ghost shrimp. And Cherry Shrimp babies

    OP's in India, they do things differently there.
