Thanks y'all. I just purchased a Chinese Algae Eater along with 4 goldfish for my pond. My pond is about 3' around and is made of concrete.

I released the fish in the pond yesterday but I couldn't find my Chinese Algae Eater (Hop Sing) today. I was worried because a turtle was in the pond. He's gone now but I thought he ate Hop Sing. But y'all make me feel better because I do have a cave in the pond and I did see Hop Sing going in and out of it yesterday. So I'm confident he's in there. He'll probably come out tonight. :)

I have 2 Blue Gouramies and 2 gold gouramies along with mollies, angelfish, and silver dollars. In a nearly 50 gallon tank, all are doing well. They like to swim and feed with my other fish and don't chase them around the tank. Right now they are only about 2-3 inches long. I think most people having problems with gouramies are putting them in tanks too small. Then need plenty of territory and will be less aggressive. Mine have done wonderful this way.

I just recently purchased 5 silver dollars for my aquarium. These fish seemed a little skiddish at first but have settled in nicely with my 4 angelfish, 4 mollies, 4 gouramies and 2 catfish. They are still a little jumpy when someone gets too close to the tank, but they are easy to care for and their constant activity makes for a nice addition to my tank. I can sit forever and watch them. Even though all 5 of mine appear to be males there is no aggession among them.

Yes, I just got rid of mine last night because it was eating my shark. Actually it was on my shark's back and eating him, yelk. They are pretty aggressive. I went to the fish store to find out what I can do and they said it could be because I have no Algae at all and to put some Algae wafers in the tank. I did but it didn't work, it almost killed my shark. Thanks

Hello,

My grade 10 class has been working on an aquarium project. We have 6 marble hatchets and 3 corydoras catfish. 4 glowlight tetras were added as a mid swimmer in our 20 gallon tank. The glowlights were added on Thursday, seemed to be doing swimmingly on Friday, but all four were mysteriously deceased by Monday. Tank levels were ammonia 0ppm, nitrites 0ppm, nitrates 5ppm, and phosphates 0.5ppm. The only thing we could figure is that they were sucked into the filter. However, they were rather large glowlights so it shouldn't have been a problem. But as a warning, be careful!!!!

The serpae tetras are very beautiful fish. I own three of them right now. I will probably add more soon. They get along great with other tetras. My serpae tetras have a very high metabolism. They are constantly swimming around.

I just got two Moors today. I named the one "Fools Gold" because he has a scar on his side and you can see a gold color underneath. The second I named "Road Rage" because he goes crazy around the tank and reminds me of my husband when hes driving. They are in a tank with an upside down catfish named "Dude". They are really quite neat!!
