I think my cories are gonna have babys! I see eggs on the glass of my tank. I love them so much, I can't wait till I'm a grandma! They are very strong fish. I had a bunch of fish and they got sick and died, and my cories had no clue what was going on. They seem very happy!

I have had my tinfoil barbs for about a year now and they have quickly grown out of my three foot tank to my bigger four foot tank with a big pleco, angelic catfish, a big leprinus, black ghost knife fish, a large polypterus, a lemon-fin barb and a silver shark. both of my tinfoil barbs get on well with my other fish Except for feeding time, when they all get alittle bit tense over getting all of the food for them self. I feed my tinfoil barbs flake, bloodworm and cokkles with some live food every now and then. I dont tend to put plants in any more because every time I do they rip them out and eat them. so I just stick with bogwood and rocks. You have to be carful when you have the lid off of your tank because the tinfoil barbs jump, which I have experienced a few times before. I will be getting another tinfoil barb soon because you really need to keep them in a school rather then singly.

I have a 45 gallon tank with 4 danios, 2 tiger barbs, 6 tetra, 1 angel, 1 blue gourami, 2 plecostomas, and 2 fiddler crabs. they live quite happily except when i added a dwarf flame gourami. the big blue bully took care of him but other wise all is well.

I had recently purchased three Electric Yellow Cichlids, (2 inches), two Albino Oscars, (1.5 inches), and a pleco (3 inches). After reading how peaceful the "Yellows" were supposed to be, and being told that because they are the same size as the Oscars, they would all be fine in the tank (29 Gal.). Well, not true... my "Yellows" managed to kill one Oscar, and totally de-fin the other....which I am about to have mercy on the poor fella.... So beware, sometimes the most aggressive fish, become victim of the so called peaceful fish.

The info here is very helpful to us newbie aquarium hobbyists. We just started our 20 gallon high tank with three Black Tetras. At first they were reserved and confined themselves to an area of cover. We are one day into this now, and they are more comfortable, alternate between hanging around the plastic leaves and darting around, occasionally nipping at each other. We are told to wait at least a week before adding more fish. We had a false start dealing with a chain pet store before we wised up and visited a real fish store with expert advice.
