Do all fish eat other fish?
Fish eat a wide variety of things; however their specific diet depends on their natural environment, the eco-system in which they live and a host of other reasons. Some fish are sluggish scavengers and will eat whatever they come across, whereas other fish’s diets consist solely of eating other fish.
What fish are carnivores?
Some of the most common carnivorous aquarium fish are specific types of cichlid, arrowana, and piranhas. Live food and frozen food, like feeder fish, brine shrimp, mosquito larvae, worms, mollusks, and other invertebrates should regularly be offered to your carnivorous fish.
Do fresh water fish eat other fish?
Fish are opportunistic, just like other living creatures. If food presents itself in any form, they will eat it. Other times it could be a more peaceful fish, but it’s also just as likely that it’s not another fish at all.

Surprisingly, science has found that fish are capable of recognizing their owner’s face, even if the owner is standing by the tank with other people. Fish can develop an association between something they like, being fed, with the person who feeds them.
Can a fish disappear from a tank?
Even if the tank has a cover, if there are any openings, it’s possible for the fish to jump out. Unless you find them shortly after the escape, the fish will soon die and dry up. Any time you’ve noticed a fish is missing, the first thing to do is quickly examine the area around the tank to see if the fish jumped out.

Do all fish eat meat?
Like people, some fish eat meat, others don’t. But this isn’t a lifestyle choice. Fish are either omnivores, carnivores, or herbivores. Never, ever feed your carnivorous fish a diet only consisting of beef.
How do you know if my fish are fighting?
There will be visible signs if a fish has been attacked in the tank. Such signs include marks on its body and nips on its fins. A fish that is injured will shy away from the other fish to give itself time to heal. Territorial fish are likely to be aggressive toward fish of their own species that are of the same sex.

Should I let my fish fight?
