I have two of these in my tank and they are very beautiful and graceful. One does seem to pick on the other but there doesnt seem to be undue stress on the part of the "victim" as it doesnt continuously hide. They get on well with other fish.
I have:
6 Neon Tetras
6 White Cloud Mountain Minnows
3 Golden Barbs
2 Dwarf Gouramis
4 Corydoras Panda
3 Otocinclus Affinis
1 Siamese Algae Eater
2 Sunrise Mollies

They seem to make for a succesful community aquarium,

These are the most beautiful fish EVER! My Dwarf Gorami is a great little fish. Perfect for my 10 gallon tank!

We bought 2 orandas today, a red cap and a red and white oranda pom pom. Both are exceptionally beautiful fish. We have them in a hexangonal tank in our computer room as we already have an aquarium in the lounge. They are so soothing to watch, we would sit there all day if we could.

The common pleco displays sexual differences in males by small barbels that grow around the mouth when they are mature, females have larger stomachs. As many of you have found, they can grow quite large, leading to good resale value. I have a clown knifefish, an arowana, two young plecs and a rainbow shark. All are carnivorous, but leave the 3" plecos alone.

My husband and I bought a redtail catfish about 3 months ago, his name is Thor, he is the best fish I have ever bought, he does not require much maintenance and he is very aggressive, he has ate many of his tank mates including angelfish, he had growm quite a bit since we have had him, we have him in a 55 gallon aquarium right now and are planning on buying a 220 gallon. They are a very easy fish to have and take care of as long as you dedicate a little time everyday to them. I would recommend a redtail catfish to anyone who asked me about them. It takes very little time for them to become a part of your family. We can interact with him, we can pet his head they are very smart catfish, and hopefully soon he will let us feed him out of our hands, they are great fish just to sit down and watch, we feed our redtail catfish live fish (feeders).

Actually, I have 2 male bettas and I either put a mirror next to their tanks or set their tanks next to each other. I have read on many different web sites that it is good for the betta to have company, even if it is just a mirror. But, my bettas are in a little tank, less that half gallon, and they have lived for a little over a year now. I have one betta, purple and yellow, that I named Spirit and the other ones name is Snuggles. I just thought that Snuggles was a cute name so I named him that. I keep my bettas by them selves, with no other fish or snail in the tank. It is though, ideal to have a small snail in the tank with your betta to keep the tank clean. Some of you say that bettas are the best pets to have and I think that is 100% true. They are so easy to take care of! DO NOT PUT TWO MALES IN THE SAME TANK UNLESS YOU HAVE A DIVIDER BETWEEN THEM! Females you can put together. And Wal-Mart, finally, is starting to carry larger cups for their bettas. I have heard that a male and a female betta should not be put together until they are ready to be bred. The male will attack the females, other males, and the baby fish (fry). And again, a betta is the best starters fish.
