I purchased 3 parrot fish that were entirely black. As they have grown, one is almost white, the other orange, and the third black and orange. They continue to change colour.

I have had Oscar's on and off for 10 years. A friend of mine normally takes the adults once they have outgrown a 50gallon tank. She owns a 150gallon tank and they love it. They are very intelligent fish, have a hearty appetite, and always seem to keep busy. Most people want fish to be lively colored and Oscar's are not the first on their list. I however think they are brilliantly marked, the albino's, the orange specks, all of them offer a variety of color. The best thing is the personality though. They always seem to "spring" clean, and when they are really hungy they pick up a mouthfull of gravel and throw it at the tank. Gee how appropriate. But I wouldn't trade them for the world. Make sure you read up on them before purchasing one, two, or a bunch. They do grow rapidly and quite big. So be prepared.

I have a 4-5 inches long one and it is a beautiful orange, and has kind of an orangish white fade to the bottom. I still cant tell what sex it is. it is super agressive towards my other fish and it is in a seperate tank! He loves frozen krill cubes. i have him/her in a 55 allon tank by himself and he is still getting use to it. They are MAJOR diggers... well mine is. I dont really have any advice except feed them three times a day.

Al was about one inch long when I bought him, now he's about four and a half, I think (I'm bad at judging such things). Very shy, will swim and hide under the tree stump decoration. I have a small school of Neon Tetras in the tank as well and have had no problems between the species (that I've seen). Fin rot withered down Al's pectoral fins and added a split in the middle of his tail, but that doesn't seem to have bothered him. I've occasionally seen him stuck to the glass or nibbling algae growth off the outside of the tree stump, so he's doing his job. Even though he's so shy that I rarely see more than just his head in the entrance of the tree stump, I still think he's very beautiful and would definately add a Chinese Algae Eater to any future fish communities.

I have a 30 gallon tank with a small bala shark, a couple congo tetras, and a couple other small fish. there is also a blue gourami. i recently added a gold gourami and all its been doing is picking on the blue one constantly! it rams its sides and tries to bite its fins when feeding and chases it all around when not. its strange because it doesnt pick on any of the other smaller fish. i read that the males have longer pointier dorsal fins and from this gathered that the gold one is male and the blue one is female. perhaps that is why. someone else said that golds are known to be more aggressive. whatever the reason im scared hes gonna kill the other one : (

Since I was small I have had guppies. Now I've 4 males and 7 females in my 10 gallon tank. I recommend if your going to breed them you get many plants for your tank, they could be real plants(make sure they're not poisonous, becuse both the adults and the fry might eat them). The plants are for the fry to hide from the adults. If you decide to have plastic plants it is ok because they won't make the water so dirty.

I have two goldfish. Pinchy is the lionhead and Fat Tony is the black moor. These are my first fish and they are such easy pets to look after and very entertaining to watch. I got them both about 5 months ago. Fat Tony did a Nemo the first day I got them and got stuck in the filter - I pulled him out and he lived! He's eye is a little more outwards than usual though! Since I got them they are feeding out of my hand and let me pat them and pick them up. Both breeds are absolutely gorgeous, would recommend to anyone.

my name is rebecca and i love my little fantails so much. i had a tank of 10 goldfish, fancy and comets. i had to seperate the fancy from the comets. i dont care what anyone says fancy tails need to be with fancy tails because compared to other goldies these are the gentle ones, slow unbothered little guys, i didnt know that comets would kill my fancy tails. so i thought, i love them dearly, and went out and bought them a special tank. the one survivor from the whole ordeal is now with 2 new fancy tails living happy AND not in FEAR :) good luck and kisses to everyones little fishys :D
