I have two male cherry barbs and I have two female cherry barbs. These fish get on most tropical fish and they are very placid. The males are darker than the females and are more attractive. They swim around with the neon tetras, zebra danios and glow light tetras. So I recommend that you get these gorgeous fish.

I have two Zebra Danios and they are lovely fish they are always chasing each other and having fun. They get on with my neon tetras, glow light tetras, my lemon tetras and my cherry barbs, my guppies, my honey gourami and my horse face loach. They are lovely fish to have so I recommend that you have them in a community tank.

I brought 12 of these a few months ago, 6 flame red and 6 honey, the 6 flame red started to deteriorate after about a month, loosing most of their colour to a faint pink, i have since lost all of these apart from 2 (those 2 still very dull and weak) but the 6 yellow honeys couldnt be doing better. 3 are showing vibrant breeding colours and look perfectly healthy. so im not sure if the flame strain is a bit weaker or didnt like my water conditions, but i would deffo recomend the yellow honeys variety, lovley fish though very active and peaceful.

    I have one adult flame dwarf gourami which is a little territorial. My 2 dwarf honey gouramis hang together and seemed to have paled in their color. I have one royal neon blue dwarf gourami which always comes to glass on tank when I walk up, even when he has already eaten.. He seems to like me. lol. I have 2 young powder blue dwarf gouramis which hang together.All of them are males since the fish store did not keep females. So far no fighting. All eat well and were shy when first added to the tank.

    I have one Honey Gourami in my tank and she is a lovely fish and gets on with everyone in the tank. We have a female Gourami in the tank and she sometimes bullies her. We used to have two Honey Gourami's in our tank but one died but we don't know why. But these are lovely fish and I recommend that you have them.

I have two loaches. One dojo and one brown. I noticed a couple days ago a slight discoloration in the dojo. The next day it was larger. After 3 days, there appears to be a hole in his face that is just getting bigger. I had the water tested and took pictures to the pet store. They have no idea what it is but suggested anti bacteria to put into the rank. It's not helping. Anyone with any ideas what to do? I've had him hot 2 years and I'm afraid I'm going to lose him

    I've had him almost two years. Sorry about the spelling. Auto correct. Also, I had a brown female and a year ago the same thing seemed to happen. Only with her, her entire upper part of her face seemed to rott away. I did a complete and extensive cleaning to kill any bacteria in that tank. Now a year later, it seems to be happening again. Please help me try to save this one

    It could be pathogenic and so anti bacterial products may not be effective. Instead you can try using a bio-filter safe furan product like Furan-2, along with some epsom salt.

Pepper loaches are active fish and are out all the time,either digging,cleaning,or just chilling.I keep them in a heavily planted 35 gallon with:2 African Brown KnifeFish,1 Female Rainbow shark,1 Male Betta,1 Iberian ribbed newt,2 corydoras cats,1 synodontis cat,1 banjo cat,1 BN Pleco,1 Kuhli Loach,1 Yoyo loach and 1 silver dollar tetra,60 gallon filter,airstone,2-3 green cabomba,willow moss,hornwort and duckweed.I will soon be adding 2 Spotted Raphael Catfish.Overall a great fish and the alternative to weather loaches in a tropical aquarium.I reccomend keeping weather loaches first as they are very similar in food,behavior and care.

I kept mono's in my fishroom before, but not for many years. Yesterday, I came across a deal in my local fish store that I could not pass up. I bought 12 small mono's for a very low price. They are about the size of a quarter dollar coin and all appear healthy and active. I'm now in the process of moving some other fish out of a 125 gallon aquarium and rearranging it to suit the mono's. I'll keep them in freshwater for now - my well water is very hard (12 dGH) with a pH of 7.8-8.0. I'm considering adding a large group of mollies for dither fish, and maybe some small synodontis cats for clean up. I'll probably plant part of the tank moderately heavy with vallisneria which will hold up well to the mono's nibbling and even to the addition of low salt levels later on. Today I fed the mono's some raw boiled zucchini and later some live brine shrimp - already they are VERY eager eaters and their schooling behaviors are delightful! I'm looking forward to watching these guys grow and thrive in their dedicated system and hopefully will enjoy several years of their presence and activity in my home.

I have a male peppered cory catfish that has been breeding with all my females. I watch the male chase the female if his choice, and they successfully breed. After the females places the eggs on the tank walls, I carefully remove them and place them in a well circulated container. After about two days the eggs show no signs of life and grow fungus. Is it possible to have A sterile male? If not, what could I be doing wrong?

    Hard to say what's going on, it could be possible the male is sterile. If the eggs are firm, then they are probably not dead. Fungus grows on dead eggs. The best fungicide for eggs is methalyne blue. Some people also add Red Cherry shrimp to help keep things clean in the grow out tank. Also to help prevent its growth make sure the tank water isn't stagnant (has adequate aeration). 
  • Kim healey - 2014-10-12
    I know my tank is clean and the water temp. Is ware it should be and the PH levels are also correct. I have a standard filter outside the tank, with oxygen, and I also have a slow but constant currant in the tank. My Corey's are happy and healthy enough to breed constantly. Every other day I wake up to multiple egg clusters all over the tank. But after 2 days they stay that white clear color, from what I've read means there not fertile and then the fungus grows:/...
