Hi, I have a Pangasius Cat (who only has one eye) and he was almost dead when I got him (purchased him from Petsmart where they said they only grow to 6"! HA! I purchased him because they were ready to throw him in the garbage can!). This fish took a day to unstress but is very healthy now. He was only about 2" when I got him and now is about 6 1/2". He used to dart into things and skin himself up until he got used to the surroundings. Was very scared when anyone walked up to the tank and now LOVES people! He comes over and stares at you with his one eye and goes into a feeding frenzy when he gets his green floating pellets. He is in a 55 gallon with a large pleco, a banjo cat, 4 corys, a spotted green puffer, and a pearl flowerhorn. Everyone gets along great. He will be going into larger tanks when he gets bigger and will eventually have a redtail cat as a friend when large enough. Good luck to everyone with their fish and happy holidays!

I have two Black Moors - Barry and Dave.

I keep them in a round bowl filled with luminous pink stones, an luminous pink castle and some of my own luminous pink bangles. Due to this they have become very colour conscious and only respond to me when I am wearing luminous pink which is nearly every day so I am ok.

I love my Black Moor. His name is Bubble, and he likes to keep my marbles at the bottom spick and span.

I have one Betta fish and i think they are awesome.
They come in a lot of different colors and they are easy to look after.
The one i have is dark blue and i have named him dookie.
So any way if you are reading this and you want to get a pet the Betta pet fish would be a great pet for you.

I must admit that I was surprised to find my male Red Flame being aggressive...no one in the fish store said they would be. I have had gold, blue, opaline, etc and they never were. I thought only the Kissing Gouramis were aggressive? He is chasing every fish in the tank. I have a female Red Flame and 3 Black Skirt Tetras too and I am rather irritated at it. One of my black skirt tetras tails has been chewed and he chases the female all the time. She stays hidden in the fake log we have until he chases her out again. He was chasing her away from feeding and the tetras, but not as much as her, last night. The tetras chase each other some too but not like this male. He is a big coward too, panics every time we come near the tank.

I currently have 1 Banjo Cat (male) who is about 5 1/2 inches long. I purchased him from a local pet store. The pet store I purchased him from had one other but refused to sell that one to me as they thought it was almost dead. They refused to listen about how these fish do not move much during the day (this place always has lights on and does NOT have places for these fish to hide) and they kept poking it and eventually threw it out. Im glad I atleast was able to rescue one of them! Most people do not understand these fish and I have heard of a few people flushing them or throwing them away (when the fish was perfectly healthy!!!). Its sad. Mine loves blood worms and will even go after them in the day time with everyone watching. They are very incredible fish and remind me of something you would find in a saltwater tank instead of fresh.

HI IM MIKE FROM PAIGTON i have a sutchi. i think these fish are great and they have alot of character. i have been keeping fish for about 5 mouths and im learning fast. the sutchi was one of my first fish. i dont recommend this because they are hard to keep as my first sutchi died. but i didnt give up i bought one a week later and had it ever since. sutchis are usually first to catch illness as parasites can attach themselves to them more easily. my sutchi is in quarantine with ulsers on his nose from darting about the tank but is recovering. he will go into my 6x2x2 ft. when hes fully grown ill have a 8x4x2 ft.

I have a 40 gallon tank. I have a flame, Pearl, Blue and Neon gourami, with neon tertas, daimyos, penguins and they seem to get along fine. The chasing goes on once in a while and so far all the gouramis are safe. I just had an initial problem when one of the flame gouramis would chase the other one. I provided a pot into the tank and it became a good hiding place. Another trick is to provide plants (Artificial plants from Tetra will also do). Most of them find a hiding place in the plants and they get a breather from the aggressive ones. This worked very well for my community aquarium.
