Bought two of these fish. For the first two weeks one would chase and nudge the other around the tank non stop. I thought I would have to end up returning him but after some time he settled down and the two of them got along great. Unfortunately one of them just died the other day and the remaining Opaline looks devastated and lonely. After I removed the dead fish the other kept frantically searching every inch of the tank looking for his buddy... makes me so sad!

Hi, I've had a giant for about 30 months now. It eats anything I throw into the tank for him; veg, banana, pellets, blood worms and even cooked rice.

Have you heard these fish "talking"!... I keep a pair of these fish in a large fish bowl. At night when the room is quiet, you can hear them make all kinds of noises. You can also hear them chew their food when you feed them! Since I got them last year, they have been my favorite fish.

I've had my betta for almost a year now and I'm happy to say that he is alive and well. I rescued him from WalMart in June of '08 because I wanted to try keeping an aquarium again since when I was a kid it had been a disaster. When I got there, all the other bettas looked sickly and did not look like I would be able to save them. But then, after looking for a couple of minutes, I saw my betta and he looked like a fighter! He was cramped in this little cup but still looked like he was determined to stay alive and not die there, so I took him home and gave him a name deserving of his fighting spirit; Guerrero. He was in a one gallon tank for a while, but now lives in a 2.5 gallon tank all by himself. He looks really happy and his fins and colors have recovered from his ordeal and now every morning I check up on him and am proud to have met the little guy!

I've recently become an avid aquariust and it was love at first sight with gouramis. My first pair were Flame Red Dwarfs then added a pair of Powder Blue Dwarfs. There was a bit of nudging at first but it now looks more like games of tag and they get along just fine. Recent additions are a pair of Blue Gouramis (Three-spot) a pleco, emerald cory cats and leopard cory cats. They make a beautiful, colorful scene to watch and each have distinct personalities while co-existing peacefully. In a seperate tank I have a pair of Gold Gouramis. They are constantly bickering back and forth and "kiss" while shoving each other around the tank. One female, one male. I thought perhaps another pair of fish would lighten their mood so I introduced a pair of Pearl Gouramis and a Clown Pleco. Hah! I no sooner had put the Pearls in and had to remove and transfer them to the larger tank. The Gold Gouramis were very aggressive/belligerent towards the Pearls. It was like watching a wrestling match when they are thrown upon the ropes! I'm thinking when the Pearls are all grown up I'll let them have a re-match...or perhaps their larger Blue cousins would like to have a few minutes go at the Golds. The Golds are beautiful but also seem to have a more "boisterous" attitude. I would incorporate with caution.

I have recently bought 2 kissing gourami's, and just before 2 blue ones, which are doing fine. One of the blue gourami's is very big and I found some eggs under my pump, but they didn't last long. I have also gotten 10 young fry from my molly's which are all swimming around the tank with the other fish and that take no notice of the others. Even at feeding they share the food.

Since I was little my house has always had a betta in it. As of right now there are two, mine and my mothers. I have to tell you, my betta Senior Pescado, is one of the best fish I've ever owned. I bought him in the fall of 2005 and he's never been better. I had him in a small bowl when I first bought him, but have upgraded 5 times since then. He's much larger than other bettas I've had or seen. Soon he'll be celebrating his 4th birthday with me and I still can't believe he's here and so alive and happy!

I have a 36 Gallon Tank with 6 Tiger Barbs, One Red Tailed Shark, 1 Golden and 1 Blue Gourami. The Gourami's leave the other fish alone although the Golden Gourami Constantly chases the Blue one around. I'm considering possibly getting another Larger Blue Gourami so its two blues vs. the one aggressive Golden one. Or at the very least I'd hope the Golden Gourami's aggression would then be split between the two blues giving them time to rest. I really feel sorry for my Blue Gourami though.

I've got 2 and one lost an eye and swims crooked like its dying, pitiful thing, but he lives on and seems to be doing well.
