I bought my Striped Raphael when he was only about 1-1/2 inches long. I have now had this fish for 12 years. He is now 8-1/2 inches long, not counting his whiskers. He is extremely inactive, except at feeding time. His favorite food is the Hikari Tropical Sinking Wafers. He cannot wait for them to sink, though. He comes to the top of the tank and catches them on the way down. He will even take them from my fingers. His eating habits are often very irregular. Sometimes he will go for two weeks without eating anything, but occasionally he will eat 8 wafers in one evening. He also sleeps in very strange positions. More than once I have thought he was dead because he would be floating upside down and motionless under something in the tank. Lately, he sleeps standing on his tail between the heater and the corner of the tank. He has been a great fish and never bothered the other fish in the tank. For 10 years his best friend was a very active Angelicus Catfish, who recently passed away. They seemed to have opposite personalities, but they always stayed together.

A unique and interesting fish. Fun to watch swimming due to their jet propulsion system. Despite their reputation for being virtually immobile they can get active at dusk when accustomed to the tank. Make sure you cover part of the tank with sand for them to bury in.

I love having platies. They are wonderful to watch and comes in various colors and sizes. They are easy to breed and easy to tell apart. I have two platies at the moment. A male and a female that are currently living in a ten gallon tank with other fishes.

Bala shark was one of my first fishes. It is a very peaceful fish. I would advise it to anyone new in this wonderful hobby. It has the apperance of a shark but that is all. It can be stressed easily though.

My mother has two albino cories and I believe she still has her emerald still. They are a very hardy fish that have all grown up in a 10-gallon tank for a little over 5 YEARS now. I recommend this fish for any tank - Beginner and Seasoned - as this fish is a joy to watch and an excellent tank cleaner. I have yet to purchase my own cories as soon as my new 29-gallon tank is better established.

I have a specimen of Agamyxis pectinifrons that I received from a friend. Its about 5 years old and about 4 inches long. Its living conditions were pretty poor when I got it (tough fish), it now resides in a 240 gal. tank and I never see it. In doing some tank cleaning I removed a large rock from the tank and didnt return it until the next day. This fish was clinging to the rock but I did not notice. It lay on the floor for 25 consecutive hours in no more than a tablespoon of water, only what dripped from the rock. When I found it I returned it to the tank and it was fine! More than a week later the fish is healthy, has perfect fins and seems to have suffered no ill effects of any kind.

I have a Chinese Algae Eater in my tank. He is cute and fun to watch! So far he hasnt climbed out even though there is a space big enough for him to try! He keeps the tank sparkling clean, and doesnt really bother with my other fish and they dont bother him either. (I have tiger barbs, gouramis, and a lg. angel).
