we had to get rid of our tiger barbs because they were tearing fins off other fish in the tank, especially the swordtails. they were attacking the other fish. we left them to see if they would settle down but when they killed a guppy we had to take them back to the shop.

I have two red wag platys, one male one female. They had sixty babys all in one ten gallon tank and they are getting bigger by the day.

I have a new black moor. I didnt name him quite yet since I got him yesterday. He shares the tank with a gold and white fantail gooldfish and a regular calico goldfish. They always hang out in trios. My fantail nips and pushes at the side of my black moor trying to get him to go to the other side of the tank. The calico goes to the other side of the tank to try to show him its ok to go up there! It is VERY funny to watch! I only have one problem with my black moor. When ever i feed them, the fantail and calico eat but not my black moor. I think that he is just a "scaredy fish" because he wont even go into the neon rock i bought! They are ALL just funny to watch together!

I have had tanks from 20 - 40+ gallons and tall to long. Pearls are my favorite for sure. I have come across an aggessive male or two, but they are the exception not the rule. Likewise, I have seen some quite shy. Typically, they are great community fish and real beauties. Feed them some worms occasionally and watch their colors come to life.

I have kept common and comet goldfish for 18 months now. I have been very happy with them, they are hardy, grow quickly, and are interesting fish to observe. They will also grow very quickly if properly cared for, mine are 3-5 times larger than when I first bought them. The most important thing to remember when keeping this fish is the water quality, just keep the water quality high and the goldfish will do very well.

Pardon my french, these fish are not all they are made out to be!!!! Sure, they are pretty, but attitude? ARG!!! These fish are not ALL peaceful and serene, I actually bought a quite violent and tempermental one, which happened to kill a guppy of mine, and to this day has been after my platies. I love these fish, they are beautiful, but the one i ended up with was ANYTHING but timid.

I have one dwarf male gourami and one female yellow gourami. The yellow female never stops attacking the dwarf gourami. I have 3 platies in the tank as well and one of the female platies is also chasing the dwarf gourami. I am worried about the dwarf. It seems that this fish is extermely timid even for community tank. I would appreciate any comments.
