Mollies are great starter fish, easily mixed with tetras or danios.

My black moor, Misha, is a constant source of pleasure for me. I came on the site to see how to best take care of her. Thanks for everything!

As with all gouramis whose mature size is around 4 inches- it is unwise to mix with the dwarf varieties. I have had horrible experiences with a homicidal gold gourami- who mauled and killed a neon dwarf gourami. Anything that is smaller, weaker, or in the wrong place at the wrong time is a potential target. In their defense they are beautiful and can be tamed. The ideal setting in my opinon for these fish is a 30+ gallon tank with one gold gourami, one pearl gourami, one opaline/blue/3 spot gourami, 3 LARGE bronze corys, and lots of hiding spaces. I have heard that the females are less tempermental but you may want to confirm that with another source. Also- if you have a good fish dealer- they will be able to inform you which fish have a tendency towards violence and which seem to be calm.

I found out that female bettas can be colourful too. When i was breeding a pair, i saw and recognised the more colourful one as the female! It was a surprise for me and know i know that not only males can be colourful.

The plecostomus is an excellent cleaner for the aquarium, however, they can be very territorial. I have a 70 gal. tank with 3 discus and one 8 inch plecos. I feed him plenty, but he is so aggressive (always chasing and harrassing my discus) that I am forced to find a new home for him. Do not put your plecos with such mild mannered fish as discus.

I got 4 angel fishes 6 months back (2 White angels) and (2 black, white diamond angels). One of the white angels died the next day. Now I have 3 of them. The white one is 6 cms and the 2 others are about 5 cms. The smaller diamond angel is chased off by the other diamond angel. I do not know their sexes. They became aggressive. They ate away 4 small fishes (silver bars, I was told)when introduced into the tank in the night. But they are beautiful.

I bought a male to replace one that died. My daughter was very upset over the whole situation. She made the mistake of thinking the cat would ignore her fish same as her first cat. I was attracted to a very battered red male (he is missing the top half of his tail fin and one eye is damaged). His name is Maximus (The Gladiator).He has brought me many hours of entertainment. He flares for the ladies and would kill the other male or die trying if he could only get to him! My daughter ended up going out and replacing her fish as none from here ever made it there. The cat went back to the pound.

Basically I have been breeding guppies for the past 8 years and they never sieze to amaze me because I always have something new in my aquarium.To some extent it can be said that it is not exactly easy to breed them because you can get as many frys but the adults have a tendancy of eating them and before you know it all of them will be gone.Therefore I would preferably seperate the expecting mother from the rest of the fish and in my case I always make sure there is more than enough food daily so as to reduce the chances of the mother eating any thing consumables unnecessarily.The guppy list is endless ,but for me I think they are the most interesting pet fish one can keep due to their variety and adaptation in various communities.I just love the guppy family,GO GUPPIES GO!I have about 100 adults and fry of up to 120 per month(various types of the guppy family.

My Chinese Alga hardly noticable. He stays near the bottom most the time and feeds off the debris. I had two, but have not seen the other one in some time. Who knows what happened to him????????

Beng a beginner with aqariums,I purchased a Ryukin,and a Fantail.
I had no idea how fast these fish would grow!!!
I had originally placed each sepeately in 2 gallon tanks.Within weeks both were growing too fast and are now together in a 10 gallon aquarium.
I love them both and wish to breed them eventually.
Thanks for all the helpful info this site offered.
