Its brilliantly colored colours often attract admiration from its owners but danger from its other tank mates. I have personally caught Tetras red-handed nibbling at its tail~! I honestly believe that Guppies are best kept with its own species. A dozen or more males will look really mesmerizing. Best to keep 1 male & 2 females, or 2 males & 4 females, for breeding purposes and provide driftwood for the babies to take refuge at, or have the babies transferred to another tank.

I bought 2 pairs of platies (Marigold Wagtail) and realised it was best to put each pair in separate tanks. The males tend to be aggressive with each other. I kept a pair at a quiet corner of my room, and occasionally fed them with tubifex worms and bloodworms as a treat. A driftwood, a simple filtering system together with pebbles were provided. Many many months later, the MOTHER platy is still around -- though the FATHER is dead -- which proves that platies can have a long lifespan too, and really grow to 7cm.

Am so obsessed with them! I have tanks with only cories as they are so enchanting.

The more cories there are, the better! Avoid driftwoods with holes as they do get stuck -- mine did! Albino cories looks very classic and when you are feeling down -- they cheer you up by winking at you. Extremely gentle and loves company from other similar sized species. Breeding proves difficult though... A must for all community tanks~!

Must feed them on a variety of food.

Avoid keeping them with sensitive fishes (discus, etc), and away from sunlight.

How long before you are able to distinguish the male from female swordfish fry? So far I have about 20 fry but all look like females, does it take awhile for male tail to grow?

I have 16 of these lovely parrots..... in my 4feet aquarium.I do not know much about fish when i got them about 18 months ago, but I loved their splendid colour and charm.... They love to play around and sometimes even tend to exhibit group kinda acts... like when they gang up against my poor chiclids which lastest about a week.... CAUTION they can be hostile when new species is introduced in their old habitat. A friend of mine says that i should have mixed them from the beginning... I do not know but now they all alone ALL 16 of them...

I have an individual kept with Neon tetras and other small fish. It has never even looked like eating them. Great community fish, although it does tend to batter itself if there are no plants in the tank.

I have had a Jack Dempsey for a while now. They are quite aggresive to my Red Devil and 4 blue Acaras. Though he is quite friendly to my two firemouths. They are beautiful fish that need intense care.

Not for the average fish keeper. You need a large tank to keep this bad boy.

Very good fish, active and good cleaners of algea and leftover food. They like clean water and warm temperatures, Buy more than one because they get lonely. Very hardy and doesnt develop any diseases. Very strong, if something happens to your tank they will be the last to know because they are very strong and can withstand a lot of stuff.

Like the INFO says, this fish is unusual and cool. When someone looks at you tank they are most likely to say WHAT IS THAT? The fish is not very active in the day, provide a lot of plants and hiding places where they could hide. During the night when most fish are still this fish will most likely go around for food. get only one because they get big and take up space, but on the other hand they dont move much, and are a great addition to any aquarium!
