As a testament to how hardy the kissing gourani's are we moved ours cross country from Virginia to California in a 2 gallon tank that we set up every other night with a air stone and he's doing really well!

I have 3 firemouths that were in a 29 gallon, but now they're in a ten gallon, and they're going to be in a 55 for the rest of their life in a few days. They are a little more aggressive than people say they are against small fish, but they get along great with my dwarf cichlids. Im separating the silver dollar from them because of their aggressive tendencies, but i must say, they are funny when they coast back and forth with their gill plates and team up with other fish to "rule the world"

I have a ten gallon tank with five jack dempseys. There are two that are big and black and three that are light brown. When I first got my dempseys, I asked the pet store what can go in the tank with them. She told me oscars, so I bought two. I put them both in the tank. My dempseys started swiming around them and I went back to the couch to watch t.v. After awhile I went over to feed them and one was dead. In the morning the other was dead. I told my boyfiend that we really got some mean fish as they did not give the other fish time to swim around the tank. We have had our dempseys for three months and I love them so much. I will be getting a 30 gallon tank so they can have more room to swim around in. My boyfriend will lay in front of the tank and watch them for hours. Right now I don't which ones are male or female, but soon I will know.

I have a 75 gal tank with a gold gourami, 12 tetras, couple of bottom feeders and one large angel. I added a blue gourami and all was fine until the blue gourami out grew the gold gourami. It is now a marathon around the tank with the blue gourami chasing the gold. I am going to have to remove the blue guy as he has become much too disruptive.

We have had good luck with these fish. We have so many babys we had to get another tank. We have a 20 gallon and just purchased a 40 gallon. We put three in the new tank and have already started getting new ones. They seem to breed like guppys. We have had over 100 babys that have grown up. With these 2 types of tanks you cant go wrong

I'm not sure who the actual breeder is, but I know that the red tailed catfish has recently been bred in captivity. They are a little more expensive because they are so hard to breed. I picked up my red tail for thirty dollars as a 3 inch juvenile. The ones that are bred in captivity are 40 dollars. My catfish is now about 18 inches and is kept in a 300 gallon tank. i am planning on setting up a 500 gallon tank for him soon. I keep him with 6 oscars, one of them is an albino fan-tail and one is a blueberry oscar(its blue)

I own a 300 Oceanic Show Aquarium with a three inch red tail giant gourami, two nine inch silver arowanas, two four-five inch silver scats, four three-four inch parrot fish, and a six inch pleco. All are doing fine with each other and my key diet when feeding them are pellets and freezed dried bloodworms which they enjoy. My Ph is at 7.2, Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0, and can you believe no Nitrate 0. Temperature is at 82 F and four filtration I personally am using eight yes eight Ehiem canister filters as in line. I used Ehiem 2215 straight in line and than the Ehiem 2217 as well by using different bio medias to clear my water. My lighting system I went with six 10,000K, two actinic blues, and two 50/50 lighting system.

Buying my Raphael was a great experience for me. I noticed it in the pet store and I had it confused with an algae eater. I thought it was a different type of algae eater. Getting home and putting it in the tank I stopped and pranced at it. I noticed the long whiskers, the tail, and as well as the mouth. I asked myself several questions and wondered why wasnt it sucking up anything from the ground or moving. Finally, I noticed that it was just a peaceful Raphael Catfish. It does not harm anybody and it allows the other fish to be around it and move it and etc. I have only had it for a week and i hope to keep it as long as the rest of the stories i've read. Its a great fish to have and to have experiences with.

My Silver Dollar is in a tank with a rainbow fish and two blood parrot chilids. He is doing great. HE tripled in size in about three months! I didn't know they grew so fast!

I love guppies! But since they breed like rabbits and the males will pester the females I would advise that you get at least twice as many females as males.
