I just got one of these fish and it is getting along great. For those with problems keeping two....try getting a third or fourth. It is said that when you keep two, the one will dominate the other, but if there is more they will settle down.

I have 3 silver mollies and 4 black mollies... all the females seem to be pregnant -I am buying a net for them and we ll see what happens. I have acclimated them to be saltwater fish. I have not lost a one... they are all doing great... and they all seem to know when I m there they all swim to the front when I m there and to the top when I open the tank to drop food in... they are such piggies... I have 2 male (black) and the rest are all females so I could have my hands full and may need someone to take some of the fry when they are big enough...Petco or Walmart???

I have two bettas (a male and female) and they are great starter fish, easy to take care of, all you need to do to keep them alive is feed them and clean their tank. I recommend getting them a 5 gallon tank or up because they tend to be depressed in smaller tanks. These fish in most cases are good comunity fish (exept if you have more than one male) and Id recommend them for tanks with tetras, small gouramis or other comunity fish.

I have two plecos in my tank. They are awesome cleaners, very hardy, and are a great addition to any tank. Mine are about 4.5 inches long and Ive had them longer than any other fish in my tank. They get along great with other fish (because theyre always eating they dont even notice other fish!).

I have two male cinnamon dwarf gouramis. They are different then red fire gouramis but oh well. They are great fish and get along great with my two bettas, my tetras and my plecos. I recomend them for tanks with small to medium comunity fish

We have had our Giant Gourami for some time now, and he has rarly caused any problems, he seemed a little down at first but now gets on with my two other dwarf gouramis.

He is a great addition to our tank, and is great fun to watch.

Id recommend one to anyone with a large tank, as he grew very fast!

The African Butterfly was my favorite of all fish. Easy to care for, wonderful to watch. When I purchased this beauty the fish store gave little information in caring for it. I had him for a month when I found him on the floor about 3 feet from the tank one morning. Doing research (after the fact)I found they will always jump out of the tank. You must keep the back of the tank covered they will leap through any opening. They glide up to 6 feet in the air in streams. I wish I knew this before hand, I would still have my beautiful butterfly.

I have 3 pangasius and they were execptionaly calm when I kept my tank at 78 degrees. Recently I raised it to 82 and their behavior has changed dramatically. They now are swimming around like crazy, lots of fun to watch and they are extremely healthy.

They eat anything they can fit in their mouths (which is a lot). Mine ate a Panaque nigrolineatus ("Royal Plecostomus") when it was younger that was about half its length, a VERY expensive meal. Anyone thinking of purchasing one of these monsters remember this: red tailed cats are voracious and should only be kept with fish that are at least two thirds their own size. Also do not keep them with agressive cichlids as they will pester them and chew their barbels off. All in all they are great if you have large aquaria to keep them in, and they enjoy ground beef heart so their not all that expensive to feed (though you should supplement their diet with live food whenever possible).

I have 2 flame gouramies and 2 powder blue gouramies in a 100 gal tank with other fish. They seem to like the pellets and not fear my 11 inch (non-aggressive - he pays little attention to the other fish) Oscar, I have not seen any actions that I would consider aggressive. They have not injured nor chased any of my clown loaches or painted glass. I have really enjoyed these fish.
