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.

I have had my leporinus for about 2 or 3 months and it is doing great. Despite what this website says this fish is not only an herbivore. Mine, which is about 4 to 5 in. in length, eats juvie swords and guppies which I have all bred myself. It does eat algea wafers and lettuce also.

I started out my fish tank with one gold gourami and three medium sized tinfoil barb fish, all relatively the same size by now. My little gold guy is peaceful enough, nobody bothers with him and vice versa. My flame dwarf fish, tetras, and bala shark all quite content with them.

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.
