Am very new to keeping fish, my wife is the expert. Set up a tank with everything, pump oxyginating weed etc. Started with 4 Fantails but now down to 2, they had a fin rot problem. The two Im left with are fine though. The pet shop said don't put them with other goldfish as they would bite their tails. but they are now in a much larger tank than at first, with 4 run of the mill goldfish, the smallest at least twice the size of the others, and its not a problem. In fact the others love chasing their tails for fun and playing follow the leader.

I have had an upside-down catfish for about 2 years now,but it is not like the other upside-downs that I have seen. It is about 8 inches long, all black with a few white spots peppering the sides. He likes to hide in plants, and when he hides near the surface, he lets me put my finger in the tank and rub his soft little belly. He is my favorite fish, and that is saying a lot because I have 7 overstocked tanks at home.

I bought a Black Moor recently, later adding 3 zebra danios, 3 long fin white cloud mountain minnows and a gold weather loach. There's no doubt which is my favourite! When I was naming him, i thought, well he's black, so i decided on Sam, after Samuel L Jackson who is my favourite actor. He's such a lively fish, never still, always scavenging around for food on the bottom or hoping for a few scraps at the surface hehe. He gets on really well with all the other fish, although he does sometimes mistake the loach for food because its usually lying dead still on the bottom! typical loach!

All goldfish need room to swim. 10 gallons per fish is ideal, it breaks down the ammonia /nitrates, and cuts down the risk of ick, and other parsites! I love my ryukins they are so funny to watch. they have alot of spunk!

I've had Albino Corys as my bottom cleaners in my tanks for as long as I can remember. They're lively little fish, and have always been great tank cleaners. I've even put them in tanks with male Betta's with no issues. I'm also happy to announce that my current set of 4 are hopefully about to be parents (provided I can keep the guppies from eating all the eggs). I've never had them breed before!

I have 2 male guppies and 1 female guppy, boy do those males keep her busy! I suggest that if you are planning on getting guppies, think of getting either two males or two females, or watch out the babies will come!

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
