Is 10 fish in single aquarium is good or not

 Are there any fish missing? Is a dead tropical fish decaying unnoticed behind your aquarium decor?

Almost all Blind Cave Fish found in stores today, can be traced to the original 75 delivered to Dallas Texas in 1936. As Jordan continued to experiment, he found, quite unexpectedly, that the new species was unusually suitable for the aquarium. It reproduced spontaneously without difficulty and adapted itself with the greatest of ease to practically every thinkable aquarium condition.
I wonder how you got the wheel spinning in the aquarium. Where did you get the fish?

While they are generally considered monsters that will chomp , a few species can make great fish. Other more aggressive species such as the , and will sometimes be so aggressive that it is necessary to keep as the sole inhabitant of the aquarium. All will require large tanks, with good . - Infusoria is often recommended as a first food for aquarium fish fry.

Aquarium Fish Care While On Vacation Tips - What to do?
Time for vacation! You've been working hard all year long and it's finally time for that well deserved vacation. Ah, just to think about it gives me the vacation fever. The time is drawing near and you suddenly realize - what the heck am I going to do about the aquarium and fish care? Who's going to feed the fish? What do I need to do to get my fish tank ready before I leave on my trip? There are several things to keep in mind and we'll try to help you get things in order before you leave so you can have a stress free and relaxing vacation not worrying about your fish and your aquarium!Another option is to use one of those plastic pill boxes that are composed of small boxes corresponding to the day of the week. You put in the amount of food that day's container that you'd like for your friend, family member or neighbor to give to your fish and then you don't have to worry about them overfeeding and polluting the aquarium water.Fish can go for several weeks without food. Some believe they can go for 3 or more weeks even. Yes, this is true believe it or not and your fish will be fine while you're away. Your tank may even look cleaner when you get home from vacation since there should be less wastes in the water from the lack of fish food entering the aquarium and less wastes being produced from fish eating that fish food.Filtration is what allows us to keep fish alive outside their native habitat. It helps clean the water so that the fish can live for extended periods of time without constant maintenance. Aquarium filters accomplish this for us.Fish produce waste as a natural part of metabolic functions. These wastes need to be processed; otherwise they will accumulate to dangerous levels in the environment. Filtration helps accomplish this in aquariums. Ammonia (NH4) is the primary nitrogenous waste product created by fish. In elevated amounts under certain conditions, ammonia will burn sensitive tissue areas on fish, such as fins and gills. Nitrites (NO2) are another waste product created by fish that is harmful in elevated doses and inhibit oxygen transportation to the bloodstream. Carbon dioxide (CO2) from fish respiration is yet another waste product that can be lethal if not regulated. By properly monitoring and managing the water characteristics through filtrations and aeration, these toxic waste products are prevented from causing harm.Understanding the Nitrogen Cycle
Biological filtration is by far the most important for keeping fish in an aquarium. From the moment fish are introduced into the aquarium, they begin releasing ammonia, their principle waste. If allowed to build, this ammonia can kill fish by burning the gill tissues and preventing them from taking oxygen. Beneficial aerobic (oxygen-loving) bacteria help us filter the water through biological filtration. Essentially, waste laden water passes over bacteria, which consume the waste and convert it into less toxic compounds.
