(1)I have bright pink gravel and my neon tetras don't seem to mind it at all. They don't hide in the shady areas. I think if they are given an aquarium with half bright and half dark, they may choose the dark side, but I have a feeling they do get used to a tank with bright gravel very quickly. (2) When introducing larger fish (even a little bit larger) the neons tend to be intimidated. I think it is best to make sure the neon school is always more numerous than the other schools since the neons are peaceful and easily intimidated.

I wanted to write this about my I.D Sharks. I love these guys. they are very challenging fish to keep. One of the two has had Ich, fungus, bumped his nose really bad into the side of the tank in a mindless flight and now he has developed some bacterial ulcers. He made it through all of this. A great fish to have...very hardy to have survived through all this! I bought them when they were just babies and they are now 6`` long in a matter of 4 months of ownership. I love them so much when ever I sit in front of their tank they come right up to me and swin in front of me...always being sure they keep an eye on me to make sure I am watching :) Very adorable. They were very nervous at first but now if I put Cichlid pellets in the palm of my hand and than put my hand in the tank they will feed from my palm...provided I don`t move at all. I definately recommend these guys to anybody who is able to provide alot of care, proper housing and attention the most important one. You have to catch diseases when they first start, hence, the attention part. It is sometimes difficult to see things on their bodies since they are so multi-tone. Overall a fantastic fish to own. Would do anything for them personally :)

I love my platys! My husband brought a couple home from the fish store one day as a gift after my current fish died. After a couple of weeks I noticed fry, but they disappeared! I added some hatching grass and a couple of more rocks and now they are reproducing very quickly! So much fun! I will be taking one pregnant female and one male to my work so the kids can watch the reproductive process in action! I cannot wait to see their reaction.

I got my 3 bala sharks about a month ago in my 55 gallon. They were about 1/2 inches long. Now they are about 2 inches and they love to eat blood worms. They live with a raphael catfish, a male and female red tailed shark, five algae eaters, four blackskirted tetras, a small catfish, and a goldust molly.
I love my bala's and can't wait to watch them get big.

Hi People, I bought 4 Silver Arowana averaging 4-5 inches. My tank size 4x2.5x2 and tank mates are 4 Leporinus, 2 Green Terror, 4 Oscars.
Surprised I guess. Well many did not recommend my combination but my risk was worth while. All the fish live in harmony and I am surprised to note that all are growing very fast. The secret I guess is I have two filters, keep the tank very clean, feed the fish twice a day. Well my next venture is building a 5 foot tank for Black Arowana's. My advice to any who wants to spend money on fish or have their own tank, please dont unless your comitted and you love what your doing. However if you really get hooked on this hobby let me tell you, you will never regret it.

Hello there. Betta Fish are one of my favorite fish.This site helped a lot with my question regarding the lifespan of Betta Fish. i have had my betta Kalan for 7 months and it's really neat to learn different facts about bettas online. Kalan is Greenish Blueish and reading this information it tells me that he is a male.
Well thats all for Now, Bye and Thanks!

My mom purchased a Black Moor and it likes to follow the other goldfish around the tank. The Black Moor, along with the other fish has chosen the bottom left side of the tank as their hang out spot.

2 days ago I got a Black Moor goldfish and my brother Malcolm got a Fantail. These are the first fish we have had and they seem to be getting on with each other. My fishes name is Shark Bait and my bro called his Gumpa. Today I thought he was blind or something because he wouldn't eat his food, except I did some research about the fish and found out that it usually waits at the bottom for the food to drop down. Now I am happy and oh yeah my brothers fish, Gumpa, is really small and cute. not saying mine isn't ok, they are both really cool. C'yall.
