I have 2 tanks, 2 30 gals. 1 tank has a 10 in. adult tinfoil barb, 3 Bala Sharks, 3 Albino Cory Cats and a Plocostomusumusums..... whatever. The Tinfoil Barb is a male, color and agressiveness tell me this, love the beast he will get in my hand if I put it in the tank. The other is full, 4 young albino Tinfoil barbs, 4 young Bala Sharks,, 3 albino cory cats and 2 Plocostomi (snicker)
I will be purchasing a 1000 gal tank before to long if the Barbs get as big as the one in the other tank.

I once had a umbrella, it was the best bird Ive ever had. I have asthma and the powder they give off made it worse. I have never had a bird since I got rid of him, but I have been saving up for a african gray for almost 2 years. I cant wait to get another bird!

Presently I have a 3 cm Banjo Catfish. I put it together with my 3 Marigold Wagtail Platies, in their breeding tank. I do not think this tiny Banjo will eat up the fries. This Banjo looks cool, but dead! it does not move around much, it looks like a little piece of wood, and its head and body does not have the same color! It seems to have been crossed by two different fishes! That is why this fish is incredibly unique for any Community Tank. Buy them tiny, so they can get accustomed with the other tankmates at a young age, as adult Banjo catfishes can be carnivorous.

I have misjudged this wonderful fish. As i noticed the shoal of Rasboras were frightened by my shoal of Black Neon Tetras, I misunderstood the fear for agression by the Black Neon Tetras. I was gazing at them and realised that the Rasboras must have been unaccustomed by my Black Neon Tetras (as they are new to the Coummunity) thus frightened, days ago. If one spends time noticing the activities of a Community tank, one can discover that there is beauty in these tetras.

It is always best to include some bottom feeders, to clear the bottom of leftovers, as I noticed they are often at the middle. They were a little aggressive with other Tetras. However, it is always right not to mix them with Angelfish & other bigger sized fishes.

Avoid adding them with other similar sized fishes especially guppies or other brightly colored ones. Have witnessed them nibbling the fin of a poor guppy. They do grow to a size bigger than some community fishes (like Neon Tetras, etc) so its best not to mix them with such community fishes. But a school of them in a tank will prove eye-catching for many hobbyists.

We have had our Timneh, Mya, for about a month and she is a sweetheart. She is around 7 months old and is already chattering and whistling up a storm. She is accepting of the whole family and we would recommend the Timneh. I had to do some talking to get my husband to buy a Timneh over a Congo but he definately has no regrets now. These birds are awesome!

we have recently bought a mitered conure and at the moment he is behaving really hostile to whoever approaches his cage. He is about a year old and i want to know if he will ever tame down and become friendly at this age or if it will be impossible. His behaviour is improving the more time I spend with him and he is becoming more used to human company after being in an aviary with limited human contact. I want a bird I can interact with and enjoy Can anyone help with taming advice ??? thanks

Pink spot goby is superb easy to keep fish. Watch out mine unfortunately jumped out of the tank overnight through a very narrow slot in tank and killed itself.
