    I have a new tank been up for a week added the fish I asked the guys at the store and said to do water changes once a month or should I do it once every 2 weeks it’s a predator tank please help me

    • TankTerrors says:

      You can do them as often as you’d like really. It’s all about keeping nitrates low, the more densely stocked your tank the faster nitrates will rise. If you have live plants it can offset it slightly but tanks with large predators can use water changes even weekly depending on stock load.

    Dear Sir,
    I have 4 Arowana’s (Silver 9-10 inches, Golden Pearl 5-6 inches, Red tail golden 10 inches and Golden High Back 8 inches) and 5 Tin foil barbs. The problem is they don’t get along with each other very well so I had to put a partition glass between my RTG and Golden Hback but my Silver Aro and Golden pearl are getting along well. So what should I do to have them all together set without any partition glass.
    I have a 7 foot L shaped tank, 46 cm Width, 40 cm Height.

    Best regards,

      Sometimes fish don’t get along. You may need to sell or move one or more. Arowana don’t always get along.
