I have had my Leporinus now for about one month and have lost several fish since I have had them. I have lost one Gourami, one Gobie, two Bull sharks, two cory cats, and one cherry barb. I do not believe anybody when they say they are not aggressive. The two I have are aggressive. I love to watch them though. I will definately keep them, but try different things with them to see if I can calm them a little with other fish.

I just recently got my first Silver Arowana. He is about 8 inches long. Despite what everyone thinks, i have learned that he can live quite nicely in a 75 gallon tank with some African and South American Cichlids. They are just a bit big for him to eat and they are staying away from each other well.T he Arowana was fed crickets for a month before i got him. It wasnt very hard to switch him to frozen foods, however he likes about 10 crickets a day with a bit of frozen food. The Cichlids wont touch the crickets but they love the frozen stuff, so that has been the only problem. Feed the Cichlids some Bio-life pellets while feeding him on the other side with frozen and a cricket or two for dessert.

I just set up a 55 gal community tank with 3 opaline gouramis, 3 rosy barbs, 4 serpae tetras, 7 zebra danios, 4 leopard corydoras, and 2 clown plecos. I started with 2 gouramis but the one was very agressive with the other, though not to the other species. I added 1 more and everything is great now. They definitely are cool fish.

ive had a silver arowana for about 4 months or so. i started feeding him wax worms that i had for my gecko and moved him onto shelled shrimp. hes never had live fish under my care and as such has never developed an intolerance to any fish. hes currently around 8" and shares his 100 gallon home with several species of fish including neon tetras. it seems as long as u never feed them live fish and they are raised with live fish they dont seem to be predatory. a good amount of food curbs this and this can be applied to fish such as smaller sharks as well. so next time ur looking for something a bit bright experiment with some small fish in a nice number and see if they stay. u might be surprised. they are also great at grabbing those little particals of food that escape the arowanas jaws.

I loved my Betta, but he died a couple of days ago. I cried forever. His name was Sooner, because he was rad and was always so hyper and happy. He lived for two months. He was a Christmas present from my B.F.F

I just got a red-capped oranda today and I already love it. The last fish I had was a Betta.

I have 3 of these, and contrary to what is stated above, they are eating my hornwort plants. They do not seem to be bother any of the other types of plants though.

I have purchased a total of five algea eaters since I started my aquarium endeavor. They are so cute and I love watching them. Sadly, two have died; one because it got stuck in a treasure chest I had as a decoration, and one from what I can only assume was old age. They are really great at keeping algea away under the waterline, but cannot reach much above it. Watch them if you ever have to take them out of the tank for any reason, they like to leap out of the fishnet and any container you put them in.

I HAVE 12 LIONHEADS AND 1 BLACK MOOR IN A 60 GAL. FISH TANK. THEY ARE FUN TO WATCH AND FEED. THEY WOULD SWIM ALL OVER THE PLACE AND SOMETIMES LOOK LIKE A SCHOOL TOGETHER. THEY LOVE TO KNOW THIEE SURRONDINGS. I HAVE 4 ORANGE OR RED, 4 BLACKS, AND 4 OTHER COLOR. THEY ARE STILL SMALL BUT FAT. THEIR HEADS ARE DEVELOPING TOO. THEY ARE NOT FOR BEGINNERS. I HAVE LOST 2 DUE TO ILLNESS, AND HEATED WATER.
