Texas cichlids have the same doglike characteristics as an Oscar if they are fed a good diet and given good water conditions. Mine is about 6 inches total and I have had him for 3 years. He is also one of the most beautiful aquarium fish available. My wife says it looks like he has green jewels all over him. Mine is not as aggressive as stated here, he gives a display (fins all the way out and shaking , as other cichlids do) but doesnt usually follow through with violence.

Hello, I also have a Male Betta, and just like my previous Betta he is in a 10 gallon tank with about 3-4 other fish. My previous Betta was in a tank with a silver dollar fish, an algae sucker, and a small gold fish. They all got along, while the Betta taunted the Dollar fish a few times, the Dollar fish did not allow himself to be bullied, and they both eventually got along. Now with my recent Betta, he lives with a chinese algae eater, a black moor, a ghost shrimp, and another fishy who I still have to identify. They all get along, the thing with a Betta is they are territorial, they tend to want space for themselves, a good cave or plant covering can supply that need in a 10 gallon or more tank with other fish as long as it is not crowded. So Bettas do get along with other fish, do not be fooled, especially by Walmart, whos employees ,who always seem so negative to begin with, tell you that you can not have a betta with other fish in the same tank. Space and a place to hide when they want to be antisocial is what the Betta wants. As long as you give them that, they should be alright. And remember to always research your fish.

I have had a jack dempsy for a while. he is in a 55 gallon tank and in this tank i have 1 6in buttycawfree, a 4 in buttycawfree, a 5 inch red devil, and a 6inch jack dempsy. I feed them spectrum food which i have found to be the best food on the market for smaller fish. If you have an aggressive jack dempsy and would like to attempt to tame it you should move it too a larger tank

Tiger barbs are my favorite fish. They are very colorful. I had 5 white clouds with 4 tiger barbs and 3 alibino barbs. They were peaceful with each other. On the other hand, I had 3 danios, and 2 died mysteriously. Now I have 6 tiger barbs and 5 serpae tetras. I feed them flake food everyday and shrimp as a treat.

A very hardy fish. I have had one for several years, he has been through a few tank changes, and has withstood high and low ph changes. Looks really cool, is easy to take care of and doesnt get too big like some catfish. He has even had some disease on his skin (my fault) and hes come back strong. He is very shy though, only really swimming around the tank at night when nobody is in the room.

I have never had a problem with the algae eater actually crawling out of the tank, however it did eat my ghost shrimp, kill my neons, and then kill another rather large fish. I have no clue how this little guy has killed my fish. I am down to two fish, and the eater, and I am worried to buy more. I would not recommend this guy if you are rather attached to your fish. I hear they are either extremely good, or extremely bad. Watch out for these guys!
