I have a texas cichlid which is now about 7 yrs. old and 10" long absolutely beautiful. blue dots all over him. looking at him I would describe him to be velvety as opposed to scaley. one heck of a dog like personality. he lives alone in a 100 gal. tank and he will follow me back and forth along it. sometimes i think he wants me to rub his belly.

I have 5 in a 30 gallon tank. They are all within 6 to 7.5 inches (their max size is greatly reduced if they are in a smaller tank.) I have had them for about 7 years now. They have grown hand friendly and will try to nibble on it every time I do something in the tank. They will eat any food whatsoever. Frequent water changes are not critical in my opinion. Sometimes I would not change the water for months and they did fine. I used a small canister filter (fluval 104) and the water stayed clear except for some waste on the bottom. They are extremely hardy: survived two moves, power outages, not being fed for a week, etc, etc. They seem to be somewhat intelligent, but not as intelligent as predatory fish. For example: I have been feeding them floating cichlid pellets for years, and they still have difficulty picking out the ones at the corners of the tank (even though they see them and circle around them).

I bought them because I wanted to have large fish with big eyes that were hardy and did not need too much looking after. They totally lived up to those expectations. However, after 5.5 inches, they started looking more like food than pets (this is a comment that I often get from those who see them for the first time and I agree). They are vicious plant killers, it did not matter whether I fed them cucumbers or not, they would still go after plants for the sport of it. This is the biggest problem with these fish. Do not hope to have any live plants if you are getting them (unless you are putting them in a pond :)). Also, they will eat a smaller fish if they can catch and swallow it. If it doesn

I have a little bookshelf tank around 2-3 gal. I just put one eater in and in one day has cleaned every bit of algae off of everything! He is very very active and likes to swim in circles. this is by far one of the most fun fish I have to watch!

I have kept bubble eye fishes and strongly recommend them to all fishkeepers. They are fascinating fish and give plenty of enjoyment. Have only had two problems:

1. Acquiring different coloured species

2. Bladder problems which result in dropsy and swimming problems.

I have three 3 tiger barbs and 2 Moss green barbs, I have found them to be really good with the setup ive got (3ft tank with 1x Blue acara, 1x Red forest jewel 1x Bristlenose catfish 1x Bunblebee catfish, 1x Clown loach and 1x Pictus catfish) They pay alot of "attention" to new tank mates for about half and hour then get bored of them and go back to chasing each other. The one I believe is the girl, is the biggest at about 6cm and is the ruler of the others. I have found them a great fish to watch and keep and would recommend them for most community setups (but not with neons oh no not with neons:( ).

My black moor Shadow is sooo cute, he swims up and down in his tank all day and all night, it is like he does not rest. Thanks for all your help in taking care of him.

I dubbed my fish Milton because his big eyes look like big nerdy glasses on. He (i like to believe he is actually a "he" because a girl named Milton would be tacky!) lives in a happy environment filled with colorful rocks, a flower, and a lily pad. He eats like a pig and has a very weird habit. He swims to the very top of his water and gurgles the water. Yeah i know...that sounds really weird! He makes noise splashing water around then he swims underwater and blows bubbles with the air he sucked up. I could sit and watch him all day.
I love my Black Moor!

I HAVE 3 SILVER ANGELFISH AND ONE SOLID BLACK. THE BLACK ONE AND THE SILVER ARE RAISING THEIR SECOND BATCH OF FRY IN MY 38 GALLON TANK. I ALSO HAVE 2 ALGE EATERS ( SUCKERS) THE BREEDING PAIR ARE MAKING ALL THE OTHER FISH STAY IN THE CORNER OF THE TANK. THE FIRST BATCH OF FRY DIED AND WAS EATEN BY THE MOTHER CAUSE I MOVED THEM IN ONE OF THOSE NET BOX THINGS YOU HANG INSIDE THE TANK FOR SMALL FRY, AND SHE ATE RIGHT THROUGH THE NET. 3 WEEKS LATER I NOTICED ANOTHER BATCH. THIS TIME I DECIDED TO LEAVE THEM WITH THE PARENTS AND THEY ARE BEING VERY OVER PROTECTIVE.I ALSO NOTICE THAT SOME OF THE FRY ARE STARTING TO SWIM ON THEIR OWN BUT THE PARENTS WILL PUT THEM IN THEIR MOUTH THEN BACK ON THE LEAF. SO BEFORE LONG ALL OF THEM WILL BE SWIMMING, CAN THEY GET SUCKED INTO THE FILTER TUBE OR EATEN BY THE OTHER ANGELS CAUSE THE PARENTS CAN NOT KEEP WATCH OVER ALL OF THEM.
