I have what I believe to be a black spotted spiny eel. I’ve had him for 5 years. He’s about 2 feet long. He lives in a 120 gallon tank. I have a Fluval FX-6 canister filter. I use 6 bags of carbon and the rest is mechanical filtration and a 100 gallon Aqueon filter that sits on top of the tank with 2 carbon inserts. The tank also has 2 power heads hooked up to a under gravel system and a large air stone and a wave maker that shoots water right down where he hangs out so I believe the water has more then enough oxygen for him. His tank mates are 2 full grown tin foil barbs, one green terror and 4 plecostomus. He’s eaten 2 tiny red worms in the last 6 weeks. He refuses to eat and has heavy breathing all the time (panting). I’ve tried cooler water, warmer water, aquarium salt and API general cure with no good results. I don’t know what else to try. Now that I think about it in the years past he has had times of heavy breathing but not continuously. I never figured it to be a bad thing because he was always eating. But now he doesn’t eat and the breathing is very heavy. On the outside he has no scratches or scrapes or puncture wounds and there’s no signs of ick or any type of white fungus anywhere. His outer body looks normal. I checked the water with a test kit and everything seemed to be fine. I also took a sample to my local pet store and had the water checked and that test also came back normal. No problem with the water. If there’s anything you can suggest it would be greatly appreciated. He’s a beautiful eel and I don’t want to lose him. I sent some pictures and a small video with this email.

pH – 7.6
Nitrite – 0
Nitrate – 80 – To me it looked close between 40 and 80 but the girl at the pet store said 80 so that’s what I’m going with.
Ammonia – 0

The tank has been set up for 5 years. Size 120 gallons. Last water change 1 week ago. Water source tap water. I do use water conditioner when doing water changes. Regular water changes every 4 weeks. Water and filter change every 6 weeks. Water parameters were checked today August 24th. I used a liquid test kit. Temperature 82. Tank mates 2 adult tin foil barbs, 4 adult plecostomus and 1 adult green terror female small. Like I said in my original email the eel has always had periods of heavy breathing but not continuously like this and has never refused food. That’s all I got for you. Please help.

I purchased 4 wild online they were placed in my 75 gallon with two gold Rams 18 Cardinal Tetras and 8 Discus Jouvies. They are rarely all seen together each has an area the defend (But only from the other 3) they have no fear of the Discus, Cardinals or Rams. But chase one another away. They are about 2 months in my tank, and were only 3/4” in size when they arrived (similar to Cardinal Size) they are now each about 1-1/2” but one ( hoping a male) is approaching 2” Personally I find them mesmerizing to watch. And along with my Discus are a great fish.
PS not taking anything away from my Cardinals or Rams…….
It’s a great Hobby …May your Fins be clear and water remain perfect…

Help, have yellow that is holding but she is the only yellow in the tank. Other tank mates are an albino Kribensis, breeding pair of Kribensis and 8 Frontosa. (Large tank) I’m confused as to what she could have bred with 🤔🤷🏻‍♀️

I have a male and female eastern gray squirrel for a new home. I prefer rehoming them together not as a pair. They are hand tamed and hand raised from birth. You can text me via (323) 859-7851 for more info. Thank you!

Our Panama Yellow Front is 34 years old, my dad pick him up when he was two years old when he was stationed in Puerto Rico. The original owner purchased him as a hand raised chick thinking they purchased a Yellow Nape. They keep him for two years and then they started having kids, twins to be exact and they were forced to sell him. I believe my dad paid $800 for him back in 89, he's moved all over the US and always been a healthy bird. He's hooked on YouTube Amazon videos now, dad set him up his own 19 inch tablet and he gets to watch his buddies all day long, if you forget to turn his tablet on, he will let you know.
