I enjoy these fish very much. I have three tanks, one in which 5 large parrots live with a couple of large cat fish. One with medium size parrots that love to swim in formation. A tank with small parrotfish who also hang together. They love frozen brine shrimp and come to the front of the tanks when I feed.They also like premium flake food and will eat the algae tabs I put in for the bottom feeders.

My Giant Gourami attacks all of my other fish including the catfish which most fish tend to ignore. The problem is getting worse as it grows, so I have separated my Gourami from the other fish. I hope my Gourami grows to be less aggressive as I hope to open up my tank in future.

I have two platys in a 20 gallon tank along with 12 other fish.The platys will stay to themselves out in the open water and are great community fish. For fun they will chase each other around without nipping fins. They are very colorful and come in many different shapes and sizes. They should be kept in tanks with tempuratures between 72-78 degrese. They will eat everything such as flakes, tablets, and live, but I suggest flakes and maybe live as a treat. Overall I think platies are community fish that can be kept,in a tank with almost any other types of fish because they are so peaceful.

I have two dwarf Gouramis, 4 lyretails, 3 tetras, 2 platys, and 3 catfish in a 20 gallon tank. i have plenty of plants and hiding spots for my fish. The Gouramis are a little timid at first but once they get used to the tank they are wonderful active community fish. once in a while the gouramis will be aggressive towords each other but they are usually very peaceful fish.They are very easy to take care of and will eat from all sections of the aquarium. overall i think Gouramis are very easy to manage and very calm and peaceful community fish.

well.. i have been keeping mine for like about 5 years and it is about three feet now.. i bought it on my birthday, but anyway this fish is not so hard to care for as long as you got space for this fish. And also this fish grows really fast. My fish got into one and half feet in less than one year when i first bought it. in addition you can also train this fish to eat pellets because mine do. But it is easier to train your fish when it is still a baby fish, once the fish get big, it is really hard to change their diet.
well, this is what i feed my fish: pellets, feederfishes, insects (crickets), shrimps, pawns, beef heart, chicken meat...etc well my fish, my "dragon" just eats about anything that is meaty.
O yea, really important at nite, remember to cover your fish tank really tight and have something heavy to put on top of the cover; because this fish can jump really high and it is a very powerful jumper.
okay guys, have fun keeping with your "dragon" fish because they are really interesting and fun to keep and watch.

I think that mollies, platys and swordtails have very low defenses against mainly fungus and fungul parasetic diseases and proper precautions should be taken to prevent these diseases. This site gives valuable info. to novices in the fish hobby Strasser Sankar

I love my Shubunkins. They are outside in an old minnow vat that I have converted into a water garden. I still have the original 8 that I bought approximately 2 years ago. I just discovered a new addition this week.
