We have kept Phantoms many times. They are easy going interesting fish. almost playfull. Our small 9 gallon tank has been fine for them until recently. We added 6 tiger barbs and 2 weeks later 6 neon tetras making 21 fish including the 6 phantoms (we refresh 2 gallons of RO water every week). The Phantoms have now become rather shy hidding at the back behind some wood and grass.

Hi i have 15 tinfoils for about 4 years. Its really cool to see them in my 95 gallon tank. They enjoy chopped liver,which isnt expensive at all. None of my tinfoils have ever died.I recommend that people should get these fish. They arent hard to take care of.

I have one in my tropical. I have only had it for a few weeks but already it has kept my rainbow shark in line. I originally had two but one died not long after getting introduced. The one fish is managing fine to keep a 92 L tank clean but getting fat.

Have had Dorothy for 3 years and presume she is getting close to her full growth. Sure hope so as she is now on her second aquarium and will go into a 5 gallon tank soon. She ? acts like all the ones written about and does give me a chuckle. Her aquarium sits next to my stove on the counter, so she is the first thing I get to interact with in the a.m. with coffee.

I have been breeding this species for a while now. I love them and believe them to be one of the best tropical fish available. The fish are quite agressive but (normally) only towards each other and it never gets too nasty, just a bit of chasing and nudging etc. I notice when I remove a male for breeding the other must re-arrange the ranking order in the tank (Who is most dominant etc) and so when the breeding is over and he is re-introduced there is always a lot of flared fins and tail slapping etc, this only last an hour or so and I have never seen any fish become injured due to this, one of them always seems to back off before it gets that bad. My advice is dont remove them too quickly, watch them and you will see the violence stop as soon as the Alpha male is decided and the rankings are agreed by the other tankmates. After that you will just see the highest ranked fish chasing the others from time to time and they always run away. Good Luck. Steve...

QUICK BREEDING TIP: I have noticed I get better breeding results from choosing a male that is not very high in the ranking order (The one that always runs away and doesnt fight). This is because he will spend more time on the nest than the high ranking males. They normally spend 95% of their time chasing the female and only 5% building. The lower ranking male tends to ignore the female for longer periods of time and puts the nest toghether quicker and better.

(Dont get me wrong he does still chase the female away etc as this is natural).

Steve...

Today I bought a medium sized comet and a medium sized blackmoor. I added them to my tank which was already home to a redcap and a shubunkin. My comet which is yet to be named is very crazy as he was jumping around in the bad desperate to be free. He/She is really slender and beautiful. I enjoy watching my 4 fishes swimming around.
