Our pet "Peaches"...cancer in a fish?

We have a large approximately 7 inch peach colored cichlid named "Peaches". We were actually informed by a local fish expert that Peaches is actually a "he" but we were so used to calling her a "she" that we still do anyway. We bought Peaches from a pet store going out of business about 5 years ago, maybe 6 years ago. I don't know how old she was when we got her, but she hasn't grown much at all since that time. She has always been very healthy and happy, eating well and enjoying life in her 36 gallon tank.

Fire Eels and Blood Parrots

would a 55 gal tank be large enough for 2 blood parrots and a fire eel? I have done some research but am getting conflicting responses as to the min. tank size needed for a fire eel.

emerald corys

Last and absolutely final additions to my tank,four beautiful emerald Cory's, seem to be more active than the peppered ones, up and down the tank sides,(plus one tiny danio that came in the bag,shouldn't think Ill see that for long!) am thinking of taking some decor out, which do you think more important - multiple hiding places or a bit more space?

Wormwood

I am just setting up a new 55 gallon aquarium. I have a very large piece of wormwood (I think thats what it is) Anyway last night I soaked it in hot water in the tub. This morning the water was brown, as I expected because I've used this wood before. Anyway, is there anyway to treat this wood or "clean it" so that my aquarium water doesn't turn brown???? Any ideas???? Thanx for any input.... :)

update on fhs and junior

the flowerhorns and junior are getting along well. junior is a female. she chases the female fh around and is doing well in the tank. i am hoping that she will like the male. he is very nice looking and would make awesome fry with her. i will keep the best two and either give away or sell the rest.

new arrivals!!!!

I finally got my two new parrots, its nice to note that the pet shop filled a form in prior to selling the fish, wanting to know the tank size, how long it had been set up, how many fish were in and when Id added the last one, the first hour the little ones were chased around the tank,then my other two went back to fighting each other between the chasing and right now the new arrivals are holed up behind the filter where general fin and baby(no longer though) can fit, they've both been out to feed, so far, so good, possible names are Captain Jack(I think it may be male, looks like a bloke

come to chat? now

one or two?

I have two parrots in 55galls, Im looking to add another but would prefer to add two, I do weekly water changes, I know that its pushing it and it should really be 60gals but could I add two? quick answer needed as I want to make a decision by friday

Update on: Help! My fish has something stuck in its mouth!

Ok, my sister was as worried about my fish as I was so she asked her vet about it...he said he wasn't an expert on fish but bring it in and he'd try to get it out. The fish was so weak and i feared it would die either way so we put it in a container and took it in to the vets office. He picked it up and could see the black object in the back of its mouth but was hesitant to pull it out not knowing what shape it was so he used a probe with a camera on the end.

my parrot keeps chasing the oscar please help

i have recently brought a baby parrot fish about 3-4 inches and i put him in a small 17 inch wide fish tank for know with my 3 inch oscar and 5 inch plec but my parrot has been bashing the oscar and chasing him like hell. do you think if i move him over to a three foot fish tank with the oscar and plec will the parrot fish have territory and stop chasing my oscar. and what other fish would you recomend me with the parrot fish in the 3 footer tank.
