I have had bad luck with fish, but bettas are very hardy. Also they are not messy like goldfish. They have a lot of personality, (for a fish) and mine will even take food from my fingertips. I have had three--two females and a male. Now I am down to one. My male died of old age, and I lost a female in a cat related tragedy. If you look around you can get some very pretty females--mine is brilliant red. She lives in a five-gallon tank with a ghost shrimp. (Which by the way she gets along with fine once the novelty of "something-new-to-follow-around" wore off.) Ivan is quite right, just because they can live in a small container does not mean they should, they should have at least a gallon. In all these are great fish, definitely one of my favorites!

The chinese algae eater will stop eating algae but eat old fish flakes at the bottom of your tank when older and will start gaining weight and slowing it down.

My fish is really cute. He is a slow swimmer, he likes to swim forward and then backwords. But he is really cute so it makes up for his lack of swimming ability.

I have kept these charming fish for about six months, and they are fun to watch! When I first bought them they were a dull off-white color, but as they matured they got slightly reddish tails, and the black, white and yellow markings on thier fins. They also co-habitate quite well with my harlequin rasboras!

I bought my raphael at a near by pet shop for about $5 at four inches. Now, eight months laters, he is six inches living in a 60 gallon with my two Red Devils and is doing OK

I have two of these in my tank and they are very beautiful and graceful. One does seem to pick on the other but there doesnt seem to be undue stress on the part of the "victim" as it doesnt continuously hide. They get on well with other fish.
I have:
6 Neon Tetras
6 White Cloud Mountain Minnows
3 Golden Barbs
2 Dwarf Gouramis
4 Corydoras Panda
3 Otocinclus Affinis
1 Siamese Algae Eater
2 Sunrise Mollies

They seem to make for a succesful community aquarium,

These are the most beautiful fish EVER! My Dwarf Gorami is a great little fish. Perfect for my 10 gallon tank!

We bought 2 orandas today, a red cap and a red and white oranda pom pom. Both are exceptionally beautiful fish. We have them in a hexangonal tank in our computer room as we already have an aquarium in the lounge. They are so soothing to watch, we would sit there all day if we could.

The common pleco displays sexual differences in males by small barbels that grow around the mouth when they are mature, females have larger stomachs. As many of you have found, they can grow quite large, leading to good resale value. I have a clown knifefish, an arowana, two young plecs and a rainbow shark. All are carnivorous, but leave the 3" plecos alone.
