Golden Fish - 2005-04-21
If taken proper care, Gold fish live longer than 20 years. Goldfish are cheap but their life is not worthless. Gold fish require a lot of space for growth and are messy creatures so consider giving them a big home or keep few in small tanks (rule of thumb 5 gallons per inch of fish). Be kind and provide them good home. I hope people treat thier fish like they want themself to be treated.

The first Leporinus I brought home is snow white w/blk. bars. I took a second one home the following night and the two swam side by side with mouths open before going at it with scales flying. I brought a third home the next night, and neither showed this behavior towards it. I suspect the first two are males. They still spar, but no out and out fighting. These two seem to have a bit more black edging on dorsal and rear of anal fins. They also have a bit more color on their pelvic fins. They pay attention only to each other, not their tankmates, which are gouramis, headstanders, bleeding hearts, kissers. They are in a 125. They need their own kind to interact with, and lots of room. They love meaty foods, but also love halved cucumber and zucchini held with an elastic on a rock, and spinach and romaine lettuce on a veggie clip, and algae wafers.

We have three tiger barbs in our 55 gallon aquarium. We did have 4, but one was a little bit smaller than the mouth of our knife fish. They are definately one of my favorites. They try to attack your hands while your cleaning out the tank and if you get one it is a good idea to get more than 1 because they will attack your other fish if they dont have partners.

I had black moor fish years ago. I had about four of them in the same tank with other goldfish they get along really well with other fish. I loved them very much. I named one of them pepsi and the fish used to go by the filter and do fan dances lol and they would come up to the side of the tank if you tapped on the glass. I have a cat now so she would probably go after them if I got any more.

I have a lion head. He was cute but he got aggressive and seems to have killed my fish. When I put other fish in with him he starts butting them.

My Texans are now on their second batch of fry. I rescued about 50 from the first batch and they are doing fine in other tanks. The second batch has been left in the tank with the parents. They take them out on "walks" every day and dote on them. The tank is full of other cichlids but they are nowhere to be found. They hide in the rocks and bushes until I throw in some food. Then they dart out and commence the feeding frenzy. The Texans have all their tank mates completely dominated. Its been two weeks and the fry are still there. Im guessing that in a few weeks they will mostly be gone unless they can find a place to hide in the bushes as well.

I just recently got my first betta fish..it is so cool! Every time i come into the room and put on my light it swims around all fast and gets really excited. Once i got him home he was eventually transfered into a big fish bowl and was very excited and would swim non-stop around the bowl. I would recommend this fish to anyone.
