    Is This A Rasbora?

    I could also move my neon tetras into my 20 gallon tank. That only has 2 guppies and 6 skirt tetras in it - plenty of room. They're the ones who I think would be at risk.

    Is This A Rasbora?

    It seems to think it's a Harlequin. I wonder if it has been with them forever and has no idea it isn't one. The only LFS I have is Petco and Petsmart. I suspect that if I bring it there, they will sell it to someone who may have a much smaller tank than I do. I do have small fish in that...

    Is This A Rasbora?

    It sure is odd that it wound up in my batch of Harlequins. LiveAquaria must have stocked Two Spots at some point and gotten them mixed, or their supplier did.

    Unexpected Twist In My 55 gallon

    After more reading I realized I do not have room for a school of Twospots even if I could find them for sale. So that is no longer an issue. Colorful fish I know I can find locally include gourami (dwarf & regular), mollies, guppies, and some Cichlids. Which of these would work best with what I...

    Is This A Rasbora?

    I looked at some other online photos, and yes, I really do think you're right. It's a 55 gallon tank so unfortunately, no, I don't. Is it even okay to keep a single 6" fish in a 55? Right now it seems quite happy, regularly schooling with either the cherry barbs or the Harlequins - very active.

    Is This A Rasbora?

    Goodness, Twospot rasboras are nearly impossible to find for sale! Have scoured the internet and nothing. Live Aquaria doesn't even have them - which is ironic given that's where this guy came from. Anyone know a good source?

    I Don't Understand...

    So much for that theory. I'm sorry about your fish. I lost a Betta unexpectedly years ago and I think it was from a water parameter issue. They are more sensitive to it than I'd realized.

    How long did you have him before he died?

    Is This A Rasbora?

    Ah, ok. I'll see if I can find a place that can get some in for me. Tough to find a day to sit at home and wait all day for them during the school year.

    Is This A Rasbora?

    Thank you! LiveAquaria must have gotten them mixed up. I'm assuming they're ok living together? Will having just one of one type and 5 of the other cause any issues?

    Is This A Rasbora?

    Is this a Harlequin Rasbora? It looks clear with a few black spots, different than the other ones who only have black in the back. I ordered 6 and this one is different to the point where I wonder if it's a different type of fish? It's bigger than the other 5 (not in photo). When I got them I...

    Ratio Of Cherry Barbs

    I ordered 6 cherry barbs from LiveAquaria. I didn't have the option to choose sex and silly me thought they'd know to include more females than males, but they sent 3 of each. I'm realizing that this may not be an issue while they are very young, but may become one as they grow (not sure how...

    Thanks for any ideas on this.

    Male Guppy At Top Of Tank

    Thanks. Then maybe I won't rock the boat. The tank has filtration for more, but I almost hate to disrupt a good thing.

    Male Guppy At Top Of Tank

    I forgot to update. The guppy died 2 days after posting this thread. The other 2 guppies periodically kept checking on him almost - circling up to see him then darting off. I think FeederGuppies was right - probably just old age. I checked him over after I removed him from the tank and saw no...
