My new babies got here this morning!!!! I'm so excited! I got about 14 convicts and I got 3 others which I'm not quite sure what they are. They are my bonus babies as he called them. Maybe you guys can help me out. Here are some pictures of the new members of the family. They are so tiny, they are just adorable!

The last pic is an albino cory catfish. They like to be in a group of at least 3 but preferably 6 or more. They are cool little cats and will swim around almost all the time looking for bits of leftovers. They like leftover foods as well as shrimp pellets and algae wafers. I have 6 of these little fish and they are very peaceful I did have them in with my guppies and they never bothered the fry I moved them cuz the guppiggies never left over any food for them and then ate the shrimp pellets I put in for the cats...lol. They are now in my 36 gallon with 3 cherry barbs and 10 glowlight tetras and doing great. Easy to look after and lots of fun...good luck. ( ps if you already knew this then disregard this post...lol)

I didn't know what they were, so thank you for telling me. Should I leave them in the tank with my convict fries? My community tank has to pink gouramis in it, I'm afraid they would try to eat them. x

You should be able to buy algae wafers from any pet store or even walmarts pet dept.
