We have a juvinille malawi cichlid born in our tank (species unknown) exhibiting some strange behavior. S/he stopped eating several days ago, has what appears to be a swollen jaw, and is now beginning to look emaciated. Otherwise, its behavior appears normal. I realize it may be difficult to...

I came down this morning to find a dead Yellow Lab. I instantly thought it was the tattered beaten up one that I've been trying to catch and isolate for the past few days....but no...she is still swimming around and keeping out of trouble. It was a perfectly healthy (until this morning) Lab. It was...

Jack Dempsey color changes??????? by Cookie
I bought a Jack Dempsey cichlid from PetsMart last week. At the store, he was yellow with a black lateral line. When the lady netted him, his yellow changed to dark gray, and he got black bands on him. Looks just like a convict. I have had him for a week, and he still hasn't changed back to yellow....

I have been selling a few of my "Electric Blues" to a LFS for very little money. I tried another today and he looked at my fish and said they weren't electric blues. He noticed there were "dots" on the side of some and said they must be a hybrid with a peacock. He then showed me his Electric...

Jack Dempsey (Fresh water or Salt water fish) by Ms. TNT
I added salt to my water. I was told at the store this would be good for my Jack. Is this a fresh water or a salt water fish? Should I remove the salt? I never had salt in it before.
