A unique and interesting fish. Fun to watch swimming due to their jet propulsion system. Despite their reputation for being virtually immobile they can get active at dusk when accustomed to the tank. Make sure you cover part of the tank with sand for them to bury in.

I bought my Striped Raphael when he was only about 1-1/2 inches long. I have now had this fish for 12 years. He is now 8-1/2 inches long, not counting his whiskers. He is extremely inactive, except at feeding time. His favorite food is the Hikari Tropical Sinking Wafers. He cannot wait for them to sink, though. He comes to the top of the tank and catches them on the way down. He will even take them from my fingers. His eating habits are often very irregular. Sometimes he will go for two weeks without eating anything, but occasionally he will eat 8 wafers in one evening. He also sleeps in very strange positions. More than once I have thought he was dead because he would be floating upside down and motionless under something in the tank. Lately, he sleeps standing on his tail between the heater and the corner of the tank. He has been a great fish and never bothered the other fish in the tank. For 10 years his best friend was a very active Angelicus Catfish, who recently passed away. They seemed to have opposite personalities, but they always stayed together.

I love having platies. They are wonderful to watch and comes in various colors and sizes. They are easy to breed and easy to tell apart. I have two platies at the moment. A male and a female that are currently living in a ten gallon tank with other fishes.

Bala shark was one of my first fishes. It is a very peaceful fish. I would advise it to anyone new in this wonderful hobby. It has the apperance of a shark but that is all. It can be stressed easily though.

my first rabbit ever was a beautiful little mini rex named coco because he was the color of rich hot coco. he came to me by the most unusual means. i was driving an ice cream truck at the time and a customer (around 12-14 years old) had him in a little box so i asked ta see him and fell in love. well apparently she had gotten him without parents permission so the girls mother jokingly said if ya want him hes yours. i laughed at first but seeing as how my fiance at the time had just had a miscarriage i thought he just might be what we needed to fill the void in our lives.
needless to say Cooco was far more then we bargined for he had endless energy endless personality and of course an endless appetite.
as we were so enriched by his presence in our lives we did the only thing we could we spoiled him rotten. sadly coco is in another home now with a good family though. but i still have one of his last offspring a solid black minirex-american dwarf mix aptly named twitch cuz shes a little bit jumpy most of the time and i love her to death and spoil her almost as much as i did with coco

I think this is a very wonderful fish. They come in all different colors and will breed easily. But if you are like me and breed your fish these are a good fish to start on. The fry are kind of hard to take care of but if you know how to do it they will probably live. They are very easy to take care of and live a while. My oldest one is almost 7 months now in a heated aquarium around 75 F and fed twice a day. He lives with a mollie, african dwarf frog, female guppy, tiger barb, red platy and 5 jumbo neon tetras.(in a 10 gallon tank)

    My female swordtails tail had a white spot on it she was pregnant, after she had the babies it went away and she is doing fine I use bottled spring water.. but I have a hard time having the babies live... they die on me. I have them in a separate little tank and feed them the flake food... how do I take care of the babies and keep them living so I can breed them?

    I think you might want to get a bigger tank for all of those, especially with a frog in there. In my ten-gallon tank, I have a pair of swordtails (the female I believe to be pregnant), and my marble angelfish.

This fish is by no means shy! If you check out any other site and look at his profile, it will tell you that these fish love people and will become very familiar with their owner. I love my little guy!
