I've had a small Chinese algae eater (@ 1&1/2inch) in my tank for two weeks. She was getting quite efficient after adjusting, but by the end of the first week I noticed she was also nipping at the larger Shubunkins (2), most especially the female. The Shubus are peaceful and just dodged her. But when I noticed after 12 days that the female's "flipper" fin was almost completely gone I immediately went on the net hunt. Apparently CAE's don't always wait to get aggressive, and now I have a "Nemo" with a lucky fin. Dodger goes back to be traded for something less interactive--lovely fish, but can be deadly!!

I have one Red tail Tinfoil Barb. He is the best. I am getting a 90 US gal tank this month because he is getting so big for the 20 US gal tank we now have. I have a Red tail Tinfoil Barb , Angel fish , 2 kissing fish , 2 pleco , Rope fish , Laetacara Dorsigera dwarf Cichlid , They all get along! The TFB will nudge a little at the angel fish but harmless. These fish are for anyone who is going to upgrade to a bigger tank. Like Toney the Tiger said,"THERE GRRReat!" Ps. They do love live plants.

I have 2 bala sharks and they are very fast swimmers and dont really bother any other fish but they do nibble plants. they have really shiny scales and look really nice when the fish turns.

I have a male and female cherry barb. They are amiable to each other, but don't appear to be really interested in mating at this time. The male is a very bright red whereas the female looks more brownish-red. The male especially likes to eat off of the driftwood in the tank. They really like frozen brine shrimp.

I have two adults (one is just touching 7 inches!! yup 7) and two smaller ones in a large well planted tank with plenty of hiding places. They seem more than happy with each other and other tank mates. Great at keeping the algea under control and fun to watch. Strangely attractive fish really, I wouldn't be with out them.

Love those Tiger Barbs...I have 11 in a planted 37 tall and it is like the music they live their life by would be circus music. What a show just a gang of goof-offs!!

they do a much better job of cleaning than Plecos, in my experience

this fish is great. mine are 4years old and are 4 inches. They share the tank with 6 goldfish and they never fight. But sometimes they bite the goldfish. Sometimes they try jumping of the aquarium, so keep it closed. They are going to keep my aquarium clean. Great fish, just keep 1 when they are big. tasfiq october 19 2005
