Advice column all about aquariums by J. Hotelling
I have a little one gallon bowl with colored rock and bought one
bottomsucker. This fish has been in the tank for one week. Seems
happy. Moves around. I have fed him goldfish food, very little, once a
How do I care for him and change the water?
A Bottomsucker can be many different things. Your fish will probably
enjoy food that is in pellet form. I suggest you go to a local pet store
and tell them your situation. They will suggest a good food for you.
Probably a spirulina or brine shrimp based pellet.
In regard to water changes, you should change the water once each week for
the first six weeks. After that, change your water (50% each time) once
every two weeks. Depending on what type of fish you have, he may outgrow
your bowl very quickly.
I hope this answers your questions. Happy fishkeeping!
