I had started out with gold fish in a 10gal tank and got a couple of platies. I dumped the gold fish and now I have two 20gal tanks with about 40 or more platies of different varieties.

I have been keeping these fish for the past couple of years. Bigest problem, they jump out of the tank - so keep it covered. They are vey fast and I have not seen any aggressive behaviour. I always purchase them in pairs - I have one about 12 inches long in a tank with large fish. They tend to be shy. Very interesting to observe. Raphael

These are truly beautiful fish! some are metalic green and others are really dark blue! As they are a different colour variety of tiger barb, they will shoal quite happily with normal tiger barbs and albino tiger barbs. When these fish are sexually mature, the males will show off to each other and their fins errect and show beautiful colouration, they scrap a bit to gain higher ranks in the shoal. In the community aquarium, it is best to keep at least 8 tiger barbs, so they will quarrel amongst themselves and will not bother other tank mates as much.

I noticed a lot of comments on the male flame gouramis being agressive and I would put my lot there also. However, it has only been against the two goldfish that we have.

My goldfish, Poko, is 11 years old and over 10 inches long. He is a really cool fish (although I am not sure if Poko is a he or a she, but I have always assumed it is a he). A while back he started getting a growth on his eye, and it keeps getting bigger. He will bump it on something every once and a while and it will fall off, but it will grow back, even bigger. I think it is some sort of tumor or something, but I have not found anyone who knows what it is for sure. I have tried different medications, and it will seem to get a little better at first, but it stops working after a while. A read in one book that things like this would need to be surgically removed... But I do not know anyone who would perform surgery on a fish!

I have five fish, the common goldfish is my favorite!!!!!!! He always puts on a show when I go to the tank. I think my fish can feel the vibration fo my voice through the water when I speak. haha.
