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.

I have a lace cat and it ate my small frog, pregnant powder-blue dwarf grommie, a small shark, and it is going after all the rest of my fish. The only fish it seems to be getting along with is my siver dollar, and the sucker fish. But, over all they are pretty cool fish.

I had 2 male Opaline Gouramis that chased each other constantly. I found another home for one of them, and added a male Pearl Gourami, 2 Rainbow Fish (male and female), and 3 Harlequin Rasboras. Everyone seems to be getting along fine so far. The Opaline Gourami nipped at the tails of the Rainbow Fish at first, but seems to have settled down now. The 20 gallon tank now consists of 1 Pearl Gourami, 1 Opaline Gourami,2 Dwarf Gouramis, 7 Neon Tetras, 3 Pristella Tetras, 2 Rainbow Fish, and 3 Harlequin Rasboras. So far everything is going well.

These are my favorite fish! I have a 20 gallon tank with 2 Dwarf Gouarmis, 3 Pristella Tetras, and 6 Neon Tetras. It is a very peaceful combination. The Gouramis are quite tame, and come to the top of the tank looking for food every time I open the lid. Their orange and blue colors are quite striking, and they are very interesting to watch.

I have a 20 gallon aquarium with 2 dwarf gouramis, 3 Pristella Tetras, and 6 Neon Tetras. Everything was going along great until I went to a pet shop and the guy told me I could add 2 male Opaline Gouramis with no problem. BIG mistake! Although they are still young, one of them chases the other one constantly. They do not seem to bother any of the other fish, just each other. A friend of mine has an aquarium, and hopefully one of them is going to a new home SOON! The guy at the pet shop told me that Opaline Gouramis are not as aggresive as the Blue Gouramis, but I have since read that Opaline Gouramis are simply a color variation of the Blues. Hopefully no one else will make the same mistake that I did.

Black Mollies were my very first pets. I adored them so much then. They are still in my top favorite list. Black Mollies look very cool, with their jet black colors. Their fries are even cuter! Basically i fed them with tubifex worms & bloodworms daily. Their parents are really protective over their offsprings and I have never seen any of their parents eaten any yet, but do provide driftwoods or hiding places for the fries.
