This beautiful fish is hardy and very peaceful.
I have kept even a small school of only two before and they
lived for quite a long time. Always out to show
off their pretty "lemon" color rather than hiding
as some other aqaurium fishes. Overall lovely fish
that is happy to live with other tank mates such
as platies, guppies and most other peaceful aquarium
fish.Lemon tetras will school tightly and they will appreciate a black background and
dark gravel. And as always, peaceful tankmates.
Best to be kept in schools of around 6 or more.

The Blue or also three-spot gourami is a brilliant fish.
I currently kept a small male in a ten gallon with
two corydoras catfish, one butterfly pleco and one
common pleco who will be moved to a fifty five gallon
pretty soon. My gourami gets along pretty well with
the other fish but sometimes he does get a little nippy,
reminding the corydoras that he is the ruler. :) ha! ha!
A very beautiful, hardy, interesting fish that fish
keepers should try out after they have got the hang of
the hobby.

I own eleven betta fish. They are truely my favorite
fish. Bettas are very responsive to people.
and sometimes can be tamed. Please dont keep them
in one of those side-by-side containers or anything
smaller then half a gallon. Its rather cruel and even
though people suggest it, the betta will suffer and not
live as long.

Hello, Bettas are probably my favorent fish.
I keep mine in large almost two gallon fish bowls which
recieve regular water changes. Bettas are very interesting
fish, each has its own personality. PLEASE never keep
bettas in anything less then half a gallon! Its a cruel
pratice though lots of people do it. Of course the best
home for a betta would truely be in a actual fish tank.
Ideal would be a five to ten gallon. Dont keep any fin
nippers with this species! :)
Marine.

Hi Kathryn,
I regards to your question, I have a 3 year old Sun Conure named Gazoo, about the only thing I can get him to say is "Hello" which he learned all on his own when he was about 10 months old. Beside "Hello" he has learned no other words.

From my understanding Sun Conures are not very good talkers, but I have discovered they are good at mimicing sounds, and they are a ton of fun. Although Sunnies are not good talkers, but like all parrots they are very intelligent, and the more you hang out with your bird the more you will appreciate their intelligence, whether or not he/she ever learns to talk much.

Best Regards,
Bill

I have a female gold in a tank w/ a female opaline. I also had another female gold before the opaline. The other gold died overnight (I THOUGHT from stress) and now Im noticing that the gold is charging the opaline. At first the opaline was hiding all the time. Now, she comes out, and flees when the gold charges. I had read that the females would be less aggressive towards each other, if at all. Now, Im concerned for my opaline. I have a 10 gal. tank w/ 3 platys, 2 gobies, one juvenile white lyretail molly, and a catfish. I would not put more than one gourami in a 10 gal. tank at a time.

I dont find these fish aggresive at all Ive had them before, for 2-3 years and have never found them aggresive. In fact Ive had them being picked on and or just left alone.

We have 2 of these fun birds. Freckle and Jeckle both came from the same breeding pair, and we believe them both to be boys. We have raised them since they were each 6 months old like our children. They are very lovable, smart and entertaining.
Unfortunalty our lives have changed and we are in a situation where we need to find them a new home. They are very loud and someone should have room for an aviary in their yard for them to play during the day.
We live on our boat in San Diego and find that the places we intend to travel will not allow us to take them with us. Please write to us if you are interested and tell us your situation.
