I recently added two gold gouramis to a tank where my kissing gouramis have been bullying all my new additions to death within hours. Not only did my golds hold their own, but the kissing gouramis have backed off on being so aggressive. Now I have 2 gold, 2 opaline and 2 kissing, and they all seem to be able to coexist with the other tank dwellers- 2 silver dollars, 2 rosy platys, 2 giant danios, bala shark, red fin shark and a pleco. Oh, and one annoying little tiger barb who refuses to die.

I picked up two red cap orandas. I am so excited to see the new arrival in my hexangonal tank in the living room. They are smooth and gracious fish. We sat for hours observing the newcomers.

For 7 years now I have had a community tank with Neons, black neon, and serpae. Up till 2 months ago I had a serpae for 5 years. At present I have a black neon 4 years old. Serpae are very hardy and comical, especially when young. Would recommend this fish to anyone.

These fish are very easy to take care of, and are not very needy at all. Great for beginners!! They have a nice see through texture. Truly a beautiful fish.

I love these fish however, I have had a hard time keeping them alive! I have had 5 of them. 2-Pac, Shorty, Busta, Spanky and Eminem. All of them died except Eminem. Em is about 4 inches long now and really fat. Its been about 1 and a half years now. People always comment on how ugly or cute or strange they look. I find them adorable !!!

yes there is parrot fish out there which have been injected which colour, but these are the ones which appear to have a horizontal line across the top of the body.
The parrot fish which are one complete colour for example blue or purple are given a colour enahncing food like the birds, canaries. for example the red factor canary if not given this food it looses its colour, but if given to a normal yellow canary it will start to show signs of red feathers which when the bird is breed the colour will be passed on to there chicks.
SORRY IT SOUNDS LIKE A LESSON IN BIRD BREEDING NOW.
The parrot fish which i keep myself and the ones i have sold in the aquatic business have never shown signs of problems. My first parrot lived to be 8yrs old and never got ill.

As Marcus Hargreaves already mentioned, these fish are brutal. My tinfoil killed my six-year-old angel fish after it knocked over the glass division.
