    Hi everyone. I'm not sure what's wrong with my cardinal, just introduced some new fish a couple days ago, and now he's just sitting in the bottom corner of my tank, and his color is lighter than the other cardinal in the tank.

    Hi, for some reason my clownfish has just stopped eating. I have had him for about a month and a little less than a week ago he stopped eating completely. Also, he seems to be breathing heavy as his mouth has been rapidly opening and closing. Other than that however, he swims around as usual. He...

    I introduced a One Spot FoxFace to my DT 8 days ago. When introduced, my Tomini Tang chased it around, gave it a couple tail slaps to show some dominance I guess. After a couple days things seemed to settle down. A couple days after that I noticed my Tomini wouldn't come out of one of the caves...

    I bought a maroon clownfish today at the lfs and it is not looking too hot. The other fish in the tank are fine. It was swimming in the anemone in my tank and looked to be ok. The last hr or so it has been on its side and looks like it is trying to swim. Any help would be awesome.

It was around 10am and the lights go on around 8. The temperature is...
