I bought two striped rafaels. One has a solid black belly, the other has a solid white belly. Evidently one is a female and the other is a male. Have had them in a 47 gallon tank for 6-7 months. They are now breeding. When the babies start free swimming they get sucked up in the filter. So if you are trying to breed these fish, they like it dark, no lights, they like coverage, a cave, plants. Leave them alone except for food and it just happens naturally? But I will change my filter for the babies sake.

i bought a leporinus a few months ago. he quickly grew large and is very aggressive. I only have one gold gourami in that tank with him. he has nipped off all the gouramis fins. i tried to put a candy striped pleco in the tank and he instantly attacked it. i dont think its common for them to be this aggressive.

I have a 75 gallon tank. My oldest daughter fell for the Opaline gouramis so I bought 3. These things chase themselves they chase my powder blues and my bala sharks. They are vicious creatures. It is always a feeding frenzy in the tank I feed them a variety of foods and they eat everything before any other of the fish get a chance. They eat like a highschool football team. I think a 3000 gallon tank to keep them under control......

I have two Ryunkins, and they are fantastic fish. I have found that mine love to eat frozen brine shrimp, but will eat flakes or pellets. (Hint: soak flakes in a small amount of tank water before feeding to reduce the possibility of swimbladder issues.) If you are thinking about purchasing a Ryunkin, be sure to have a large tank, as these fish grow rapidly. But, they make wonderful pets and are a fun addition to any household!

They are beautiful. Sono pesci bellissimi che consiglio a chiunque voglia avere nel proprio acquario un pesce inelligente e che mangia davvero tanto.Regala molte soddisfazioni. (Translated: "They are the most beautiful fish and I recommend them to anyone who likes intelligent fish in their aquarium that eat a lot. Regala many satisfactions indeed.")

Hi
I have 3 of those bloody parrots . Had them now for about one year and 2 month.And I lovvvve them. They kiss each other and play push away. At first I thought they would harm themselves but they are not. Although I must say that when I do my cleaning of the tank my bigger one comes swimming and nips me. Now everytime he comes to me I try to tough him and he swims away. It got to the point that he really hurt me. But I thought if I just show him that I can do that too he thought...well I better lay off. So now he comes up and just watches me while I do the cleaning. I also play with them. I put one of my fingers on the tank and go back and forth and they all follow the finger. Thats so cute.They love to eat but only once a day and love to make a mess. My kids call them plumpy, gumpy, and lumpy. So they are the highlight of our family.

Now im not here to get all all sentimental and mushy inside about the mollies but...i will tell you what i have...Well fellas....and gals.....I have a helluva combination in my 49 gallon tank I bought at Wal-Mart. So far I have bought 18-female-sailfin mollies for a whopping $40.00 A good price to pay on these is about $2.00 per fish. If you are paying more than that.....chances are you are getting ripped off so look around a bit........well anyways like i was saying...the tank looks really elegant with all these white sailfin mollies mixed in with BLACK angel fish....the contrast between black and white fish is really nice......

If u dont believe me....try it... =)

I purchased my black moor in 1988, and they are still alive in my 10 GAL aquarium. My moor lives with a calico fantail, and they are a pair of old goldfish (theres a difference between a week in a bowl or 16 years in a fish tank). They are supposed to be very long-lived, and should live another 20 years or so. They are very easy to keep, (unless you keep them in a bowl in which they wont survive long), and be careful when handling them, because of their delicate eyes, and dont overdose when treating ich.

I was amazed to find a site like this. Too Cool. I have one wonderful Black Moor, named Hercamer. He is a fish with personality, I am so attached to it, that it got me to thinking of what the lifespan of these fish are?? I have had mine for a couple of years. Does anyone know the lifespan of these fish??? Any info. would be super.......

Happy Fishes...
