  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 gallon tall - 3 paskai's neon red rainbow, 5 paskai's blue eyed rainbowfish, 8 harlequin rasbora, 2 blue ninja shrimp, 6 cherry shrimp, 2 nerite snail, 1 bronze cory, 1 peppered cory, 1 julii cory, 2 pc driftwood planted with anubias and narrowleaf java fern.
    Other plants in tank - 1 bunch anacharis, 1 bunch water wysteria, 1 package of B. Caroliniana, 1 Crypto Luten, 1 red wendii, Mossball.

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