i got a silver dollar nice fish easy to notice with the aggressive face. i bought one 3 or 4 days ago and it seems nice. i was afraid cause of the the other fishes; gourami`s, oscars, chiclids, but seems he is fast enough to run and hide. still the parrot fish is fast enough to reach him but has become peaceful. im planning to bring a partner for that silver dollar. i think i got a male silver dollar.

Everything I read about the neon blue dwarf gourami states it as being a peaceful species. However, I recently put two males into close quarters and they began to fight in a way similar to Betta Splendens. I had to separate one into another tank after it was attacked repeatedly by the other male, which was flaring its fins and exhibiting a similar dominant behavior over the other.

I dont recommended this for the beginning fish owners. They are hard to keep alive and it is not pleasent to see them die in four days after you buy them. One of three we own is dead, one is dying, and one is lethargic. Be aware of these fish.

i got a balloon kissing fish. still not red, as it should be, but really cute. it has a nice charisma in the aquarium and is really tough enough to resist the other fishes

I have kept Leporinus fasciatus for about 5-6 yrs. I got a pair of them (2 really), not knowing how to distinguish the gender! ;)
I would strongly suggest that if soomeone purchases leporinus fasciatus, to get more than one. All of the aggression from this fish is between the 2 of them and in 5 yrs they have not harmed each other but seem to quarrel regularly. Many descriptions of this fish describe them as sluggish or lazy. This is strange because they are the most active fish i have kept and they are very long lived from the looks of it. I cannot stress how hardy they are.
My fish are under the care of my sister now, in a one hundred gallon. Almost every time she cleans the tank or vaccuums it, one of them leaps out to incredible distances. I am serious, 12 feet was the last distance last week. It seems impossible, but true!
Varied diet describes what they eat more than herbivoeous. The various descriptions of this fish are very old for reference and do not seem to ever get updated because they have been available in the hobby for decades. Great fish !!! mine are 7 inches each and they seem to do a crazy courtship-type dance that is tough to describe. No breeding here yet though!
But I sure hope they breed! :)

I have six salvinis, 2 males and maybe four females. one pair is quite a bit larger than the other four fish. Anyway, they are in a tank with convicts angels, clown loaches, and two red head cichlids.T he largest male is the dominant fish in the tank but hes no killer except with feeder fish and insects. When he gets his treats he is deadly. Right now the 2 larger females seem to have territories at each end of the tank. The adult male still has full control though. I will post more here when they breed. They are stunning fish. id reccomend them to anyone interested in keeping cichlids

my husband and i have a red tailed catfish named red. this is our third one. he is about 10 inches. red is a wonderful fish except for the fact that he has ate 4 arowanas,1 leaf fish, and 6 tinfoil bards that were about hand size. out of all three we have had, this one means the most to us. This is because we saved him from our amazon catfish which had him in his mouth up to his pectoral fins by the time i saw him. my husband got the catfish to spit him out and he is still thriving today. we keep him in a 180 gallon tank. we plan to build a pond in our back yard for him pretty soon.
