I have 4 beautiful jellybeans {pink,blue,orange,yellow} sad to say green and purple died. My four fined friends are not friends themselves.T hey are very territorial and always trying to push each other out of the favorite cave. I bought these fish because of there beautiful colors but they are always hiding. when people come over they always ask if there is anything in the tank. I thought it was beacuse it was a new enviroment. Here I am two years later still waiting for them to lose ther shyness. I have heard they are very entertaining and active.Just my luck I pick the reclusive ones. But when I can find them I still think they are beautiful.

i have one of these comical fish he is over 26" and no problem with small fish even tetra. i have had him over 20 years and he was 12" when i got him. he loves lettuce, cucumber, grapes, etc, etc, and will eat whole prawn in the shell. he loves attacking you but it is all show. they are soft and very inteligent. i tried to put him in a large pool in my conservatory, he did not settle so moved him back into his tank. his name his derek although he is a she. would not recommend for beginners to keep them due to size and very long life.

my name is paul wiiliams and my fantail is posiedon. yes i know its rather odd to name a fish however, posiedon is very special to me as he has helped me become very relaxed when needed most. see, i have heart problems and posiedon knows this,for, somehow, he swims very near to the glass whenever i have had a heart attack and only when i have one. otherwise he mainly stays near to the back. it is possible for a fish and his or her owner to communicate through some weird sense.

Bettas are one of my favorite fish!! I am a huge animal lover, especially fish! I have a 30 gallon goldfish aquarium, and 2 one gallon betta tanks. The tanks have a clear divider in the middle, so you can have one one each side and watch them flare and freak out when they see each other!! I named them all from song lyrics/titles from my favorite band, Aerosmith. I have two blue ones(Baby Blue, Beelzebub), a white one with red fins(Kitty), and a purple one(Sweet Emotion). They are very easy to take care of, and they get so excited when I come into the room! I reccomend bettas to anybody who is a beginner and for any fish or animal lover out there!!

I personally love lionheads!! I have one now that I have had him (im assuming)for about 3 years. His name is Squeegy and he is extremely active. He has grown to about 5 inches long, and does not look like he is going to stop growing any time soon. I have noticed that he is quite fond of fresh peas, and is a pig when it comes to feeding time. I highly recommend this type of fish for anybody who loves goldfish. Lionheads are beautiful and they are funny to watch and raise.

I love these little dudes!! They are so adorable!! But, I had an unfortunate accident with mine. One morning I looked into my aquarium and saw that "Bubbles" had become sucked in the filter bottom. His bubble was stuck and he could not move. Now I love goldfish and I could not just kill the poor thing, so I ended up breaking my filter bottom to get the little dude out. He only lived for about a week after that. But they are hardy fish and very funny to watch.

This profile finally gives these wonderful fish justice. It should be pointed out that there are several species of banjo cats, but a great profile nonetheless. I have kept several of the banjo cat species, which vary greatly in body shape and color. A great and hardy fish, I would recommend these fish to just about anyone looking to "spice up" a tank.
