I have a 30 gallon tank, with 11 shark/catfish. 6 of the black tips
and 5 of the iridecent 3 of the 11 are almost 7 inches long.
I can not get over how fast they are growing.
I also have in my tank, 4 Angel fish, 2 Kissing Grouramis, some pink & blue tetras, some mollies, 2 loaches, 2 bottom feeders, and 4 bottom feeder catfish.
At Xmas I am going to be getting a 55 gallon tank to put them in.
I found all the stuff on this webpage very useful.
Any ideas as what I can put in the 55 gallon tank to make them more comfortable?

I inherited a 70 gallon tall tank from my mother in law and there were two Serpaes in it at the time. After the initial move one was obviously stressed and became ill. Within about a week it was healthy again (Used an ick treatment), and after a month his fins were back and bright(they are the long finned variety). Ive since added 6 more in groups of three, the first batch was bought from a new LFS whos water quality was admittedly poor, the second from a LFS the has a great reputation, the first three died, the last three are thriving. A very beautiful community fish with a lot of personality and not the least bit shy. They will nip fins but are not overly aggressive. I definitly recommend the long fin variety.

i have a goldfish that is a foot and a half long with two firemouths that are also a foot and a half long. I used to have another firemouth and an oscar that were around 8 inches long, but my goldfish swallowed them. I know it sounds hard to believe, but its true!

Guppies are beautiful fish which add alot more than just a fish to your tropical aquarium. I first bred them 3 weeks ago, I bought a pregnant female and a breeding trap and within 5 hours in my tank the female started to give birth to 86 young. Only 9 of the fry were eaten, after 8 weeks I walked to the shop that I bought the female from and sold all the best looking ones for $1.00AUS each. the others were put back in my tank.

WARNING be carful not to put males and females together as they will breed extremly fast (not that thats bad, just be carful)

Lydia, to be honest swimming upsidedown is a sign of swim-bladder disease. It is NOT fatal, but I reccomend treatment.

Lee, You can get either flakes or frozen foods, both of these sink to bottom quite fast

When I first got the 10 " shark he would not eat. It took 2 months for him to relax enough to eat with the light on when I drop in sinking discs. However it still has a damaged nose from when it banged into the glass when I first brought it home. It healed some but there are still 2 spots that are raw and dont heal.
