I fell in love with the bright orange pair I have as soon as I saw them, what made me smile the most was their interaction with me. These fish are so friendly and sociable, my friends are fascinated with them. They are around about five inches at the moment and live very happily in my community tank, although they used to be alot more fish in the tank.
I havent replaced them as my two parrots are getting so big there would be no room left for the little guys!!.
Currently I have angels, tetras, catfish, clown loaches and a rope fish all living together quite peacfully. When I first brought them I found it very difficult to find any information on keeping these fish, but I have treated them no different to my other fish, they eat catfish pellets, tropical flakes, bloodworm and their own kind of cichlid food.
I would not hesitate to recommend these fish to anyone, they are very well natured and have a cheeky kind of wit about them, which makes them a conversation piece most dinner times.

I had 2 of these little pinky orange heart shaped cuties but sadly both died due to bad advice and a parasite they had when i got them. But for the 8 weeks i had them before they died they were a pleasure to watch and like little people, very nosey and very playful especially when i was dusting the outside of the tank. I intend to get some more when i get a bigger tank.

LUCY I hear ya sister. ive had three suckers climb out of my 10 gallon tank through a 4x1 inch space. what happened in my other experiences. more catastophe- it sucked the scales off of its tank mate- wounds which quickly festered and grew fungus and the fish died. After killing all my other fish- the little demon climbed through the tank and on to the hood, right next to the light switch. The image of its dried out body practicaly mocking me still haunts me today.

Hi, I have an irridescent shark/sutchi and i dont recomend it to beginners because he gets frightened very easy, but if you show him who is boss when you are cleaning the tank and let him get used to you he will go to the other side of the tank and wont flip out.

I like going to this site for answers to my livebearer questions.I own 4 swordtails,if you include the baby fry,1 large female guppie,and 30 of her fry.People say livebearers are only for beginners,but I like having fish that are easy to breed and tell apart.I could not imagine having a tank without atleast 2 livebearers.I would like to see more pictures or swordtail colors on this site.I enjoy seeing some of the vast color types!Thanks!

This is the exact site I was searching for! My first try searching for information about Black Moors-and I got it! I have two Black Moors and I really love them. They are very friendly fish. Every night before I got to sleep I lay on one side and observe them for about 5 minutes and then I go to sleep. Thanks again for creating this site.

I put my arowana with about 20 small feeder fish and it can gulp one whenever he feels a bit peckish. Oscars and other large fish will make good tank-mates with it.

I have gotten 2 lion head fish and 2 black moore. They are so cute and I love them a lot. When I bought them they were in the same tank so I figured it would be fine to keep them together. They are all very active and seem to enjoy each other. Their names are (lionheads) R2 and D2; (black moors) Yoda and O-bee. They make great entertainment for everyone who sees them!

A hardy, pretty, and underrated fish. Looks great against a blue background. Sometimes they school and sometimes they explore on their own, at all levels of the tank. Bloodfins are supposed to be about the easiest tetra to keep. Mine adapted to my aquarium in no time. Their fins are a quite nice red.
