Armatus is the true payara where as this species is a much smaller(usually less than a foot) relative.

I have over 37 fishies in my hugomongous tank. I only have 1 marble hatchet and he loves to eat spaghetti sauce flakes. I purchase them at my best friends store. It has dehydrated tomatoes in it. My fishies do NOT eat mosquito larve OR bloodworms. These fishies go with the flow and don't really need special attention. I believe it is a true waste to buy mosquito larve or bloodwoms. All my marble hatchets that I've had have lived at least 4 years. My daughter brought her favorite one, 007 to college with her. He is still living in her dorm room. Oh gawrsh I miss them so much. Anywho, these fishies are the easiest fishies I have ever had. Also, they don't really need to be in groups of 5 or more. Just one can live on it's own, like my elderly grandmother. DO NOT WASTE YOUR HARD-EARNED MOOLAH ON EXTRA SPECIAL CARE OR FOOD! I'M TELLING YOU PEOPLE IF YOU SPEND EXTRA CA-CHING ON THESE FISH YOU ARE INSANE! Thank ya'll sweeties.

So I love the cudaaas lol i have had 7 in my life. Now I raise them from 3 inch babies in a 36 gallon bow. From then around 5 inches I move them to my 46 bow front and at 7 inches they go in my 6 foot long 2 foot wide 2 foot tall 180 gallon tank and even though they say don't put them in with aggersive siclets my siclets are super aggresive and I worry more with the sicclets then the cudas or my red bellies. The sicclet is a very teritorial fish who love to lay eggs and become more vicious and territorial non the less I have 4 8 inch red tail barracuda between 3 and 4 years of age in my 180. Never mind the siclets my red tail barracudas are so fast and such strong swimmers I reccomend the type of 180 I have at minimum for them and keep up with there environment aka water ph acidity nitrates nitrites and such and they will do fine. Just don't add smaller fish because they veiw them as prey and cause there death do so much damage anything without armor won't survive long. A few plecos a couple oscars and some siclets make a perfect enviornment hope this helps you

I have had two wonderful leporinus! Unfortunately my first one jumped out of a bucket during a water change but I had him about 6 years. His character was just WONDERFUL. He was basically the 'peacekeeper' in my tank. I had him in a mixed mbuna cichlid tank. My next leporinus has basically the same personality. If he thinks any cichlids are starting to fight, he basically gets in the middle and 'breaks up' the disturbance. My rating: 5 stars!!

I have 5 of these lemon tetras in a community tank.with a roseline shark and 3 germanram cichlids. The tetras are fun to watch and constantly hang out with a female German ram. Planning to buy 3 or 4 more lemon tetras

Can I put Black Tetras with Green Barbs? I have 3 Green Barbs and do not want to get more. My tank is only a 15 gallons. What fish can I put with these Barbs?

    Barbs and larger tetras will normally do ok together depending on size. Barbs tend to be a bit dominate if larger. Gaint Danios and platys are normal great additions. Can also put in catfish. Anything fast moving in usually ok. No angels or gouramis. Be careful not to over crowd your tank. Barbs like to be in schools so I would probably add a couple more.

Why have 2 of my silver dollars got black spots on their side and their tails gone black?

    Is it the edges of tail that are turnong black or the entire tail?
