• Balloon Molly

    • Molly fishes are one of the most desired fishes by hobbyist who have small or medium size tank there are verities available and they are live bearers and they give birth live fries unlike other fishes who lay eggs molly are easily bred and at times can pose difficult situations on account of large number of fries based on their fins and coloration they are broadly divided in four categories 1. Poecilia which means (many colored), 2. Sphenops means (wedge appearance ) 3. Latipinna which means broad fins and finally velifera which means sail bearing. the most common is the short-finned molly, these can grow up to 3″ or longer depending upon care and upkeep. Mollies have been inter bread to create large varieties.
    • Average life span of molly is about 3 years and if adequate care is taken they can live longer. Mollies requires clean water and prone to ich, fungle and other diseases males are relentless in their pursuit of a mate so it is advisable to keep three female to every male. mollies are brackish water fish and it is advisable and to keep them in brackish environment. though the molly can survive in fresh water condition but there are chances of high mortality rate if brackish condition are not mate. balloon mollies have compatibility short a life span on account of their body shape. while keeping balloon molly it is advisable to keep constant care and conditioning as they are not immune to fluctuation of water parameters, mollies are generally omnivorous but their diet should consist of high herbivorous content.
    • Mollies are not suited for over stocked tanks and the aquatic condition have to be maintained to avoid any fluctuation which may advisorly affect the health of mollies it is recommended that weekly water change to the extent of 25% is done. and in case a larger aquarium the partial water change can be affected every 2-4 weeks. good filtration is also essential in maintaining the water parameters. however strong filter is not recommended as they may increase the water movement. it is recommended that one teaspoon per gallon of salt is added to maintain salinity which would improve the overall disease tolerance capability of mollies.
    • They are active swimmer it would be appropriate to have mollies or other members of the life bearer family. another important aspect to kept in mind is while selecting or choosing tank-mates for mollies is their capability to adjust to brackish condition. mollies are fin nipper but they themselves have extensive fins therefore it is advisable not to keep fin nipper like tiger bard as tank mates.

  • Mono Angel Fish

    • Mono Fish is also known by its other names like Silver Moony, Moonfish, Mono Argentus.
    • The Mono Argentus is a disc- shaped fish with a flattened body, similar to that of a freshwater angelfish. minus the feelers. Mono Fish can reach up to 11 inches (27 cm) in the wild. In the aquarium they will generally not get much bigger than about 6 inches (15 cm) with a life span of about 7 – 10 years. The body coloration of the Mono is a shiny silver with light yellow coloring on the dorsal, anal and tail fins. There are two vertical black bands, one extending through the eye with another just behind it that extends across the body and along the front edges of the dorsal and anal fin. Juveniles have a brighter yellow dorsal fin.
    • The Mono Fish is suggested for a more experienced fish keeper as they must be kept in strongly brackish or marine aquariums. A great deal of experience is need to successfully house these fish, but for an experience aquarist they will present no particular problems. To successfully change water conditions as the fish ages can be a challenge. In addition to a good sized tank, the only other requirement is clean, well filtered water. If you are up for that challenge these fish are easy to feed and will take a variety of foods.
    • The Mono Fish is an omnivorous species. In the wild they feed on a variety of plant matter, detritus, and insects. Although in the aquarium they will eat dried foods, they really should be fed a varied diet consisting of fresh or frozen foods such as brine shrimp or blood worms. They can also be offered some vegetable matter such as algae, blanched lettuce and spinach, and boiled peas.
    • Some Mono Fish will survive for awhile in pure freshwater but they really are brackish water fish. These fish are also greedy, fast growing feeders and produce a lot of waste. They need quality water conditions and so a powerful filter is essential. Their tank should be cleaned weekly and have at least a 30% water change done. For substrate use a fine gravel or sand. A high efficient undergravel filter will work well to keep the oxygen level high in the tank. A efficient canister filter will work well with these aggressive, messy eaters. Monos need plenty of swimming space and driftwood, branches and roots make good decor and an area for the fish to entertain themselves.
    • A schooling fish, the Monos do best in groups of 5 or more. They are relatively peaceful fish, but they do squabble within their ranks. Fish kept in pairs or even trios rarely work out, as there is no room to spread out aggression. These fish develop a hierarchy within their school, with the largest fish being more dominant and feeding first.They are lively and rambunctious, but they are peaceful with their other tank mates. They may eat small fish and shrimp and they are easily intimidated by large or aggressive fish. So be sure none of their tank mates are likely to ever grow to be much larger than the Monos will, and also be sure their tank mates aren’t bite size. Never include Monos and freshwater Angelfish in the same tank. Angelfish have two ‘feelers’ in front of the bottom fin. Monos natural clean each other and when they see an angelfish, they try to clean the feelers off of them. It is said that Mono’s think Angelfish are also Monos and don’t understand that their feelers are suppose to be there. Good choices would be larger mollies, as well as Archerfish, Scats, and brackish species of Gobies.

    Venustus

    • Description : Venustus  is also called by its other names like Giraffe Cichlid, Giraffe Haplochromis, Venustus Hap, Kalingo. The Venustus is a good sized cichlid with a stocky elongated body and a large mouth. They reach up to about 10 inches (25 cm) in length, and sometimes grow a bit bigger in the aquarium. This fish has a life span of up to 10 years. The male can range from a solid gold with a blue face or be all blue. But all will have the “giraffe” patterning faded in the background and a yellow to tan stripe starting at the nose and running along the top of the dorsal. Females and juveniles are a lighter beige coloring with the brownish “giraffe” spotting being more pronounced. The female has a hint of gold on the head area, an anal fin that is yellow on the bottom half and a tail fin that is clear on top and yellow on the bottom half. Her dorsal fin is tipped in a lighter color too. The juvenile looks the same as the female but their background is a little lighter, almost a silver white color. All cichlids share a common feature that some saltwater fish such as wrasses and parrotfish have and that is a well-developed pharyngeal set of teeth that are in the throat, along with their regular teeth. Cichlids have spiny rays in the back parts of the anal, dorsal, pectoral, and pelvic fins to help discourage predators. The front part of these fins are soft and perfect for precise positions and effortless movements in the water as opposed to fast swimming. Cichlids have one nostril on each side while other fish have 2 sets. To sense “smells” in the water, they suck water in and expel the water right back out after being “sampled” for a short or longer time, depending on how much the cichlid needs to “smell” the water. This feature is shared by saltwater damselfish and cichlids are thought to be closely related.
    • Fish Keeping Difficulty : This is a good fish for both the intermediate and experienced cichlid keeper. It is an fairly aggressive cichlid, and not a community tank specimen. It cannot kept with fish other than cichlids. The aquarists must be willing to do frequent water changes and provide appropriate tank mates. It is susceptible to Malawi bloat as well as the typical diseases that effect all freshwater fish if the tank is not maintained. In the proper setup it will easily adapt to prepared foods, breed readily, and the juveniles are easy to raise as well.
    • Foods & Feeding : The Venustus are omnivorous, but in the wild they habitually feed on fish so can be considered a piscivore. In the aquarium they do best with a high protein diet. They can be fed live or frozen food, freeze dried krill, pellets, and other high quality foods for piscivores. Occasionally feed mysis and feeder fish, though feeder fish can initiate hunting instincts and cause more aggression. They need herbivorous foods as well to balance out their diet. Young up to 3 to 4″ can be fed flake, but after that flake is too messy and will foul the water. Adults do best when fed frozen foods twice a week. They will eat to the point of their stomach being distended, so be very careful to not overfeed.
    • Aquarium Care : Malawi Cichlids will deteriorate under poor water conditions. Water changes of 10% to 20% a week depending on bioload. Malawi bloat is a typical disease especially if over fed and there is a lack of some herbivorous foods that are high quality.
    • Aquarium Setup : A minimum 70 gallon tank will work when small, but because they grow quickly and have an aggressive nature, 125 gallons is suggested. They do fine in either freshwater or brackish freshwater but need good water movement along with very strong and efficient filtration. Poor water quality will ruin their eyes. Keeping the ph above neutral is important. They can tolerate any Ph above neutral, but a ph level of 8 is best.
    • Social Behavior : The Venustus Cichlid is not considered to be a community fish. They are voracious predators, but they are only moderately aggressive accept when spawning. They do best in a species specific tank or with other cichlids. Some aquarists report severe aggressiveness, which could be due to inadequate housing. They should not be kept with Mbunas (smaller rock dwelling cichlids). Some have put them with others of there same genus, though in very large systems to promote the spawning colors. The Venustus is best kept in groups of one male and several females. They will shoal together if there are quite a few (6 to 8 adults in 125 gallons). They will attack and kill any other males of the same species in the tank unless the tank is large. If overstocking is used as a form of aggression reduction, care should be taken to do several partial water changes a week. Do not put this fish with peaceful cichlids
