I have been playing musical tanks with my fish to find the right combinations. I have 8 neon tetras, 6 black skirt tetras, a black phantom tetra, 4 platies, 5 mollies (plus one baby that hid when I got rid of the rest), a betta, and a blue gourami. In addition I sort of breed snails. Knowing I have to watch what I put the gourami with is why I am playing musical tanks. He gets along fine with the mollies and the platies, but chases the tetras. I am leery of putting the betta and gourami together. So I had the gourami with the platies and all the snails in one tank. But I just found out that the gourami nips at my snails tentacles, and I just can not have that. So now he is in with no snails, the 4 platies and my neons. Seems to do ok with the neons because if he gets close to them, they are faster and go to the other side of the tank. As he gets bigger, I will be taking all the small fish out of his tank. But beautiful fish, and I can not wait till he is full grown :)

I bought my Black Moor, named Piglet, a month ago because I instantly fell in love with their cuteness. My Black Moor is very active and friendly, trailing behind my female fish wherever she swims in the tank. When I first brought him home, he ate a full algae tablet in less than 20 minutes once he found it. He chews his flake food, spits it out, and then eats it.

I have a blackmoor called squirt with 2 comets. they get along with each other and like to hide in the trees and decorations. Most of the time squirt swims near the top with his little tail waving around. the 2 comets swim down at the bottom, but sometimes squirt comes and joins in. They like to chase each other around the tank. Squirt is a beautiful fish and likes to follow my finger when i put it against the tank.

I recently bought three Black Moor - Google (one very protuding eye), Monkeyfish (coz he is cheeky) and Bob (who I have now renamed Pyscho Bob due to the incessant chasing of the other two fish). I am completely mesmerized by them, the television doesnt get a look in anymore!!

Serpae tetras are great little fish, and they go well with many types of other fish. Right now, I have five of them, three dwarf gourami, and a synodontis eupterus (a bottom-feeder type of fish) in my thirty-gallon tank. They are doing beautifully, and I plan to add more soon.

We have just purchased two beautiful red cap oranda and named them Jensen and Jason. We are a little nervous about looking after them properly as we are newcomers to keeping fish. However we are keeping our fingers crossed that they survive and grow into strapping lads.

I bought a Redcapped Oranda about a month ago and meticulously cleaned his tank and properly adjusted him to the new water temperature, but one morning I awoke to find my poor fish dead. He was absolutely beautiful and I was heartbroken to not be able to watch him grow.

We have a Kissing Gourami that we have had for 16 years, he likes to be alone from other fish and recognizes us on sight. He gets mad and splashes if we do not feed him immediately. He about 5-6 inches long and we purchased him for our daughter when she was 15, she is now 31. He has been very enjoyable.
