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).

The picture on this site does not do this fish justice!! I have 2 of them and they are absolutely beautiful....like green jewels. I also have 2 "regular" tiger barbs and when I added the green ones to the tank, they instantly took to each other and began schooling together. PS...I also have a large Angel, 4 pink kissing gouramis, and 2 blue gouramis. Tiger Barbs dont really bug the other fish as long as they have friends of their own kind and lots of plants :)

I`ve had two of these fish for twenty years,they go for long periods without eating,then they will eat for a period of days,then stop again.They will eat any small fish they can swallow at night when the fish settle down to sleep.

I have had bad luck with fish, but bettas are very hardy. Also they are not messy like goldfish. They have a lot of personality, (for a fish) and mine will even take food from my fingertips. I have had three--two females and a male. Now I am down to one. My male died of old age, and I lost a female in a cat related tragedy. If you look around you can get some very pretty females--mine is brilliant red. She lives in a five-gallon tank with a ghost shrimp. (Which by the way she gets along with fine once the novelty of "something-new-to-follow-around" wore off.) Ivan is quite right, just because they can live in a small container does not mean they should, they should have at least a gallon. In all these are great fish, definitely one of my favorites!

The chinese algae eater will stop eating algae but eat old fish flakes at the bottom of your tank when older and will start gaining weight and slowing it down.

My fish is really cute. He is a slow swimmer, he likes to swim forward and then backwords. But he is really cute so it makes up for his lack of swimming ability.
