I have a specimen of Agamyxis pectinifrons that I received from a friend. Its about 5 years old and about 4 inches long. Its living conditions were pretty poor when I got it (tough fish), it now resides in a 240 gal. tank and I never see it. In doing some tank cleaning I removed a large rock from the tank and didnt return it until the next day. This fish was clinging to the rock but I did not notice. It lay on the floor for 25 consecutive hours in no more than a tablespoon of water, only what dripped from the rock. When I found it I returned it to the tank and it was fine! More than a week later the fish is healthy, has perfect fins and seems to have suffered no ill effects of any kind.

I have a Chinese Algae Eater in my tank. He is cute and fun to watch! So far he hasnt climbed out even though there is a space big enough for him to try! He keeps the tank sparkling clean, and doesnt really bother with my other fish and they dont bother him either. (I have tiger barbs, gouramis, and a lg. angel).

The picture on this site does not do this fish justice!! I have 2 of them and they are absolutely beautiful....like green jewels. I also have 2 "regular" tiger barbs and when I added the green ones to the tank, they instantly took to each other and began schooling together. PS...I also have a large Angel, 4 pink kissing gouramis, and 2 blue gouramis. Tiger Barbs dont really bug the other fish as long as they have friends of their own kind and lots of plants :)

I`ve had two of these fish for twenty years,they go for long periods without eating,then they will eat for a period of days,then stop again.They will eat any small fish they can swallow at night when the fish settle down to sleep.

Hi, I just wanted to comment about Wet Tail, and how the Dry Tail is not very effective at all. Wet Tail is a very fatal disease, and even with the anti-biotics that the vets give out, I read that 80% of them still die. My little one has Wet Tail right now and I am really hoping she will get better. Anyway, I just wanted to comment that if a hamster appears to have this disease, then the first thing the owner should do is to take the hamster to a vet, RIGHT AWAY. Hamsters can die within 48 hours of when the symptoms have begun to show. Thank you =)

tallulah is the name of our very lively healthy clown tang. (although maybe borris is her name ...how do you know if its a male or female ??) anyway , royal of the tank it is. Likes to hang out with clowne fish, and isnt scared to tease simon, the banded shrimp. Likes to shelter in the biggest cave, and will makes her head turn black when feeling territorial. Extremely fast swimmer , loves her food and has a good sense of humour.

A common misconception is that this fish is a slow swimmer but it can keep up with just about any fish, especially when an attempt is made to catch it. They can dart from one end of the tank to the other in a flash. I have had several and they do seem prone to ich. Freshwater dips and keeping the salinity low, around 1.020, seem to help a lot.
