I have a 20-gallon aquarium with 7 Neon Tetras, 3 Pristella Tetras, and 2 male Dwarf Gouramis. They all seem to get along well. The Neons make a beautiful school of fish!

We have a boy Dusky, named Deui (Day-you). We bought him as a friend for our for our girl Gold Capped conure. Deui has proven to be a real fun bird. He is very sweet and loves to be on my shoulder. His favorite activity is chewing on my ear lobe... Deui is a great eater too.

I have a mandarinefish ever since I started my aquarium, and it is one of my favorite fishes. The mandarine fish is really easy to keep, is quiet and fast and you can find it one day in one place and the next day in the opposite place. It is great.
If you have any doubt, do not think twice and contact me at

Lion fish are the coolest fish you will ever own. The small ones are not as active and do not move very much.

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.
