I knew this fish was famous for nipping at fins, but I had no idea it would swallow my neon tetra whole... Other than that one incident, this fish is very active and interesting to watch.

It is possible to breed Rummy-noses...I've done it by accident! A very clean tank is essential--when mine bred, the tank was quite recently set up (the rummy's being my starter fish). The males start chasing the females around the tank, and when the female consents, they make for some vegetation and spawn. Ours laid eggs on our Water Primrose...unfortunately, they aren't great parents, and we weren't prepared for the grand event, so they ate all their eggs :(

My Leporinus fasciatus is a beast. I have had him for well over 2 years and is roughly 8in. I have noticed several large chilids and my african butterfly fish, as well as some tiger barbs disappeared. This guy is the killer. I warn anyone who wants one, it is a mean fish and likes live prey, it will not leave any remains, it eats everything of the fish.

To be truly honest my hachetfish have NEVER jumped or tried to jump out of the tank! The tank is covered but the filter has no cover.

I bought 6 flame tetras today, they are still adjusting to their environment, but are really beautifull.

I have 1 fully grown silverdollar in a 120 gallon fish tank with 1 albino Id shark, 1 salvini, 1 clownknife, and 2 golden tinfoil barbs. The silver dollar is very happy by himself. I had him with 2 silverdollars the same size, but he chase them around. so I put them in a 55 gallon tank. They are with some peaceful fish and are very happy. THANKS. ENJOY YOUR SILVERDOLLARS.

We loved the color and activity of our 4 serpae tetras, but we eventually had to remove them from our 30-gallon community tank.

The problem began when we went from 2 to 4 serpae tetras. They had behaved fine before, but now they began to nip the fins of the smaller neon tetras in the tank. The tail fins of four neons were basically bitten completely off before we realized what was happening, and 2 of them died. No problems since the serpaes were removed.

They are an interesting fish, but beware of their potential aggression toward smaller fish.

silver dollars are great. I've had them since the summer. they like to eat these sinking pellets that you would feed catfish like I once had. They along great with my other fish.which are a white cloud mountain fish, two black striped tetras and one very small fish about 1.5 cm. I keep them all in a ten gallon tank. My silver dollars are about 1.5 or 2 inches big. they are very happy.

I have a 14 1/2 gallon tank that has 1 Blue Rainbow, 1 Zebra Loach, 2 Swordtails, 3 Mollies, 3 American Flagfish, 4 Pristella Tetras, 4 Silver tipped Tetra and 3 Glowlight Tetra. The Glowlight Tetras are very active and colourful which is good. And they seem to get along with their tankmates(Especially the other Tetras).
