i only recently bought a female and male pearl gourami, but already they are one my most active and peaceful fish in my 180 litre tank. theyre kept with a rope fish, a red-finned shark, 10 columbia, 95 tetras and about 4 danios (the rope fish ate the other danios). they both get along great with all the inhabitants and an absolute bargain of a fish.

We have two black moors, Miriam and Keef. They live with a goldfish named Daisy. We just love our black moors, they hang in the tank floating around. They use their little fins to walk along the bottom of the tank and with the sun on them they are the prettiest little things. So placid and happy, we just love them. We called one Miriam cause we were not sure if it is a girl or a boy and Keef cause our favourite saying is "My names Keef" We just love them to bits....

I have had several different Gouramis and think they are very hardy and beautiful fish. But, I have a very aggressive "killer" blue Gourami on my hands. Over the past year and half he has tormented and caused the death of at least 10 fish. At one time I had him in a separate tank, but it broke, so back he went with the other fish and in the past month has killed my Gold Gourami. Things seem to be okay for now, but I have several hiding places for all the other fish. He is very much the king of the tank.

I have kept Silver Dollars for about three years now, they are a very nervous and shy fish and do better in numbers of three or more. They are a wonderful fish to keep and have had no problems apart from them eating every plant in my tank! Need to feed them plenty of veg such as lettuce. Have kept them with medium Tetras and angels and all are fine. Best to keep them in a larger fish tanks mine are in a 55 gallon tank.

I have two gold gouramis. I had them in a 10 gallon tank with my two goldfish and an African Dwarf Frog. They didnt chase any of them, but one of the gold gouramis got very territorial and started to beat up the other one to the point that i never saw it because it was to scared to come out! Anyway now i have them in a much bigger tank with an electric yellow cichlid and a brown knife. They dont bother each other anymore besides the ocasional chase and the one that was getting beat up so bad is now the one that is doing some of the chasing!! I just hope that all of the fish will do fine with the discus cichlid that im planning to get and im getting rid of the yellow cichlid because it is just too aggressive with all of the fish that i have. He even killed his mate!!!!

I have had my redtail for about 5 months, and am really intrigued by him. He eats like a horse. We feed him smelt, feeders, and pellets. I discovered one morning that my full-sized Jack Dempsey was missing in a haze of filmy water that was once crystal clear eight, hours prior to the discovery. Make sure you keep your tank stocked with feeders at all times or you will surely see a disappearing act in the morning. I highly recommend this fish, as he truly is a conversation piece.

Be careful with Chinese Algae eaters. They will occasionally nibble algae, but once they discover the wonders of fallen flake food, they will prefer that over algae. Chinese Algae eaters also tend to nibble on other fish when they get bored. They are particularly fond of the slime coatings and trailing fins of my angelfish and betta. If you are looking for an interesting fish to eat your surplus of algae, you would be better off trying to find a Siamese Algae Eater. He looks similar, but not the same as the Chinese Algae Eater. My Siamese Algae Eater, Sludge, does a great job with all the algae that pops up in my planted tank.

I first bought 15 feeder goldfish at 5 for a dollar 3 years ago. The nice lady at the pet store gave me one extra. They were only about an inch long. In the past 3 years 3 have died but the rest are between 5 and 6 inches long. They seem to be growing too fast but that is probably only because I have kept them in an outdoor tank. I guess you could call it a tank it is actually a huge tractor tire that is approximately 450 gallons and is directly hooked to a well and has water available anytime. There is a faucet thing underwater that is tied to a plastic float. All I have to do is push the float down and water comes out. The tank is about 4 foot across and 3 foot deep. I keep them there all year round even in the winter. It freezes about 2 inches solid every year about every day in the winter. I am only 14 years old so I`m out of school during the winter because of snow so I have this sledge hammer to bust the ice gently so not to scare the fish. The tank doesn`t have any sort of filtration just when I dip out about 10% of the water every day.
