I purchased one oranda two years ago. At the time, I didn't know anything about them, except that he caught my eye as I went by the tank at the pet store because he was beautifully marked and seemed to be asking to go home with me. He was about two inches long and is now about 8 to 10 inches from nose to end of tail. His tank is right by the end of our sofa and if I don't feed him before I sit down for the news he comes to the end of his tank and stares at me with his nose right on the glass. He does many funny things and I love him a lot. My son has named him Fat Eddy.

The opaline Gourami, I think is very aggressive because i had two of them in a long 20 gallon aquarium and the bigger one attacked the smaller one. So I had to move the smaller one into my 10 gallon aquarium, but it died. So I would suggest to anyone wanting to buy one of these fish, you won't be able to put smaller fish in.

I am sad to say that my pet "Sharky" died yesterday 8/9/05. I had him for.... are you ready?.....22 years! He was about 1 inch long when I bought him and was almost 12 inches when he passed on. I kept him in a 20 gallon long aqaurium with his only other roomie a 15 year old Rafael catfish. He probably would have grown bigger in a bigger tank but he was big enough for me. After a proper, respectful grieving period, I am going to restock the tank with lots of small peaceful fish like neons, guppies and angels. Farewell Sharky, I will miss you! :(

I bought two "3 spot Gouramis" and mixed them with my goldfishes. But from what I've learned from this site, the "3 spot Gourami" is somewhat of a bully. Actually my two gouramis are always chasing each other until now, and I did see them harrassing the my precious goldfish. Now I'm considering purchasing another tank for these gouramis ... I don't want to take any chances.

I put a few of these in my pond, now there are hundreds. The pond freezes in winter and these guys come back to life when it thaws.

I have a Ryukin calico goldfish we call Greta (for Greta Garbo) because she has eyes that seem to have a blue shine to them and black lips like she's ready for Hollywood! She's a real beauty and quite a charater. We got her around Christmas and she has totally doubled in size. What a fun fish!

These are some aggresive fish. i had a pair in a tank. i went downstairs to feed my other fish and when i came back up the snail that was in that tank was eaten. The pair are the only fish in the tank for now and they look very good in a well planted tank. i personally like the fish with lighter coloured plants, green looks great, but i have a black plant and they blend into it. I would really recommend these fish to everybody. very nice fish, look great, and love to eat.
