I have a blue gourami in a 10 gallon tank with a yoyo loach, a glass fish, a black tetra, two platies and one swordfish. I have had them all together with no problems for the past month and a half. The blue gourami is growing bigger now. In the past two days it has attacked and killed both of my platies who were at least half its size. It chases the swordfish, but I have put in extra hiding places and it seems to be okay. The black tetra is the same size as the blue gourami, but the blue gourami still chases the tetra. The tetra is a lot faster than the gourami though. I will not be putting any more small fish in the same tank as the gourami.

I am a huge fish lover and about a month ago i got my first betta. He is a beautiful red male with long fins. When i come into the room, my betta notices and starts swimming around happpily. Bettas are probably one of the best fish to have.They dont eat much, require not too much space and are beautiful!

I had two of these to start and they lasted a long time until they died a few days ago (stress from moving). I bought four more to replace them and they seem to be doing well with the other fish, although they love to nip at each other.

They are quite easy to care for and I had several who managed to breed. They get along well with the other fish but my serpae tetra love to nip on them.

I took Clide, my silver arowana, to the vet (university veterinary hospital) because he was not eating and had a bulging right eye. Think twice before you do this because he thrashed so hard in the tupperware that he lost the feelers on his lower lip and several scales, as well as had a bashed up nose, and was mad at me for a week and would not let me feed or pet him for a week even though he would eat when my daughter fed him. Arowanas are very smart fish and definitely recognize different people and remember things. He is ok now though.

A friend gave me two adolescent brichardi because they were nipping the fins off of her other two brichardi. I put them in my community tank and they quickly became very bossy. I removed them from my 100 gallon & put them in a 10 gallon tank, gave them a conch seashell and boom within 2 weeks they had at least 50 tiny babies. She keeps them in the shell the first few days after they hatch. Nearly two months later Ive got around 200 babies; five fry or so. Incredible parents and beautiful fish.

I am going to have to get another tank as my red flame gourami is bullying all the other fish..even other gouramis. I thought these were a peaceful species! My other gouramis are hiding because of him. Bummer.

Love these fish. my Lemon and Red Eyed Tetra hangs out with them. BUT BEWARE, you should have at LEAST a 150 Gallon Tank or they will start to freak out and will hit the side of the tank and could break the glass. they are VERY strong and fast so dont get them if you have a small tank, and they freak out easily. not very good for kids because they could scare them. they should be in with at least 3 other fish or the above could happen.

nice fishes. i love them when they all swim together, an irresistable view. i had three and they are still carrying on, but i think im going to buy alot more. i think 10 or 15 is pretty good on a tank with other fishes like black tetras, guppies, and mollies
