The Betta is my personal favorite. I keep my bettas in one gallon aquariums. One thing you should know is that you should clean their tanks or jars every three days, especially if the tank is small.

i have 2 opaline gouramis, a male betta, 2 tiger barbs, and a plecotomus and they all get along great. once in a while my betta chases my gouramis, but so far i havent had any problem at all with my gouramis being "aggressive". they are very fascinating fish.

I have found these little fish to be great for my tank. Some do get agressive when older but not all of them. I have one larger specimen (approx 5cm long) which although it doesnt clean much algae now, it pretty much leaves the rest of the community alone. The tank consists of Plattys, Glowlights, Neons, Black tetras, 1 peppermint bristlenose, Bronze & Sterbai Corys, Emerald Cats, plus three smaller Chinese Algae Eaters. this mix does work well as the smaller eaters keep the tank clean and they are more interested in chasing each other than the other fish. I definitely advise removing territorial fish but basically they are lovely to watch and do a good job in cleaning the tank. I have also found some of these fish do remain active in removing algae even when growing larger. Just keep in mind the fish you intend to keep with the algae eaters and seek some general advice but overall they are a great addition to a tank.

I live in Melbourne Australia and I have to say I love my orandas. they are just so pretty and delicate to watch. I have two large gold ones and one large black and white one living with eight young orandas of different colours in a 250 litre tank with every conceivable up to the minute gadget on it. they bring me much joy just to watch. I find it very soothing and I find feeding times fulfill my maternal yearnings.

I got my first betta a couple of months ago, and for christmas i got a tank with a divider. Yesterday I got another betta. He is a beautiful, blue with red bits on his fins. I called him Whinfred. I like watching them flare at each other. Bettas are a really good fish and if you want a fish get a betta.

I just got my first larger size aquarium, ten gallons, and I put a Red tail shark, a guppie, and two black skirt tetras into the tank. After my shark decided to commit suicide, there was a small opening near the filter he jumped out of (oops!), I went and got a Blue Gourami and a plecko. At first everything was fine and dandy but then I came home one day and the Gourami had killed the two tetras. The guppie seems to be ok though. I think its best to keep the Gouramis away from the little guys.

My girlfriend was feeding my black moor, and the tank light fell in; shocking my girlfriend and blowing the light bulb out in a flash. My black moor did not seem to notice the electricity that was passed through the tank. So I unplugged the light, moved my girlfriend made sure she was ok and expected the worst of my fish. When I saw the fish swimming around regularly, I fed it.

I am currently have a baby pleco in a 5 gallon tank. I plan to have a bigger tank when it grows up..However I am having trouble specing it I have noticed that it has a shield infront of its eye and 2 fins on the side it is tan with black spots. its very cool. I hope to find out what species it is soon.

I have a pictus catfish that really enjoys neons. The pictus is like a vaccuum cleaner, it tears around the tank devouring anything it can fit in its mouth. Amazingly it seems to be able to fit anything in there. Because the neons sleep on the bottom, 1 appears to go missing every few days at the same time the pictus appears bloated.

I have no problems with the neons themselves, but they make expensive food.
