I have 2 blue gouramis that are about 3 inches long. I have them in a 75 gallon tank with a 8" fire eel, a 4" fire eel, a 4" albino claw frog, a tapajose sultan pleco about 4", a common pleco about 5", about a 6" carupo knife fish, a 5" ghost knife fish, 4 silver dollars, a 4" and a 3" angel fish, and a 12" pacu. The paco is a recent addition but the blue gouramis don't seem to chase anything around the tank but each other. I recently discovered that I have a male and a female gourami. Of course even the silver dollars aren't much smaller than the gourami's either. I believe that size is an important factor because even when I put feeder fish in their they don't go after them

I purchased a Black Moore about 4 months ago and I couldnt love a fish anymore then I love her. Her name is Eowyn' Yuna. My tank is built around her and everything she likes. She loves alot of attention. When she comes to the front of the tank she is always looking for love. She gives me a kiss through the glass every morning and night. You can say for the first 2 weeks I slept by the tank just to make sure she was ok. She is in a tank with a Pleco and live plants. Ooo I almost forgot a Mixed molly to. I recommend a moore to anyone that loves a show of the fins and color. Remember they give lots of love too.

I got 2 Angelfish, 1 gold and one a black marbled/gold angel. I just got them 4 weeks ago, and the gold angel grew a few inches. They like dried tubifex worms, as well as granule. Their tankmates are 3 mollies, 4 platies, 1 Spotted Rafael catfish, Chinese Algea Eater, and 2 Black Khulii Loaches. They have not gotten aggressive at all and are extremely placid and swim up and downwards and spin while going up.

We have 2 Jack Dempsey, got them both a few months ago at roughly an inch and a half each. Now the one that was slightly bigger is getting really big while the other one hasn't grown much. The big one chases the little one a lot so the little ones always hiding. We've been unsuccessful adding any fish to the tank. They do have amazing color, though!

Well, I am hoping to purchase some Black Moors soon as I understand they are very easy keepers and would look good also with the two Calico Fantails. Just a quick thought though.....I am a knowledgeable Betta Splendens breeder and one should NEVER, EVER keep Bettas and Goldfish together. For one, a Betta is a tropical and Goldfish a coldwater. The second thing is that Goldfish are much to aggressive to be housed with Bettas simply because Goldfish are pigs and eat everything in sight and as a result, are bullies, esp. towards smaller fish, also if your'e able to keep them together, it means you tank arrangements are MUCH TOO cold for Bettas....Bettas are actually quite unhappy if kept under 70 degrees F.

I'm new to the world of Shubunkin's, but am already a fan. Wish I'd had these as a kid. We have five: Marilyn the prettiest who's mostly white with red and grey, Charlie who's more orange than any other colour, Fred who always looks grumpy, Doris who's named so for no other reason than lack of imagination, and Betty. Bossy Betty Blue runs the roost & I think she's a Bristol, as her tail's rounder than the others. I agree with previous comments, they're very acrobatic swimmers and great fun to watch. I love 'em.

What I thought was a peaceful fish was swimming around my tank yesterday with a little rummy-nosed tetra in his mouth!!! These fish are great, and fast!!! and remember to keep a lid on thier tank otherwise you will find out how high they can jump! Im hoping the little fish incident was a one off!

My male flame honey gourami would pick on my female dwarf, so I had to move her to a ten gallon. HE gets along with the female honey gourami and he even leaves the guppies alone.

My Jack Dempsey was one of my favorite fish. It was dark all the time had lot's of shiny blue scales across it's body, face, and fins and had a bit of red on the tip of it's dorsal fin. It just looks awesome when flaring against my other cichlids. A very tough and cool fish!

Hello everyone in the aquarium hobby business. I'm a proud owner of a 200 gallon Oceanic Show tank will the following fishes: four blood parrots, two silver arowanas, three silver scats, two silver dollars, three clown loach, five red tail sharks, three rainbow sharks, opaline gourami, golden gourami and a plecostamus. Everybody is approximately the same sizes except for the plecostamus and silver arowanas. The water chemistry is as follows: pH-7.4, nitrite-0, ammonia-0, nitrate-10. Feeding includes freeze-dried blood worms, Omega One super color floating pellets, and on occasion as a treat frozen Hikari blood worms. Water changes are accomplished by doing a twenty-five to thirty percent of water every month. Filtration Emperor 400, four Ehiem 2217 in line, four 2215 in line, 3 Maxi-Jet 1200 and 3 Maxi-Jet 1000 for circulation. Additionally using Tetratec DW96-2 to run a 48 inch. bubble wand. Temperature is set at 82 degrees farenheit. For lighting I used four 10,000K and two 50/50 bulbs. Decorations consist of clay pots, African drift wood anchored down by slate, tall long artificial plants, and many hiding places too. I hope you enjoy reading this.
