Which fish turned out to be better than you expected ?
When I was little my friends had a kuhli loach and I was so envious, and every time I go to the LFS they are out- I have wanted a gentle and non predatious bottom roaming fish for my Myanmar hex tank I'm doing (probably for tiger dario and those green danio/raspboras I can't remember- I have to keep the bioload so low! We'll see how aquabid goes, lol). Do you think stripey wiggle noodles would be a good choice, if I luck out and they're actually in stock once?Donovan Jones said:Kahlil loaches and pygmy killies. The former because stripy noodle go wiggle
The latter because they look so simple but are extremely intelligent and ravenous
What's their tank mates ?Fae said:Surprisingly a female betta in my community tank. Not sure what I expected, but I didn't expect what I got! She is so friendly and energetic and interesting. So much personality, and never has any problems with any other fish. Compared to my angry boi flower who kills any shrimp prettier than him in his 5.5... lol
I think part of it might be the way I picked my female betta. All the healthy ones with nice colour I pulled out from the rest and sat them next to each other to gauge their reaction to other fish. The more calm ones I then help up to a big tank full of tetras. I went with the one who seemed the most okay with other fish. Seems to have worked but dang I didn't expect all the spice and good moods too
I don't have any apisto anymore .jake37 said:I'm really happy with my hongsloi. They aren't super-red like coralbandit but I'm pretty happy with them. I also have a special liking for nijsseni and nannacara. I can't vote on gold rams yet since mine seem to die after 9 or 10 months. After i move and have a better environment for them I will be setting up a tank with 10 or 20 various rams.
I'm also really happy with my lemon BN. He finally managed to talk the clown loach into switching places with him so now he hangs out in front every day. Probably waiting for me to give him a treat.

Good looking fish that constantly moved and schooled on the top of the tank. Never got big. They were about an inch long. Made the mistake of starting discus and they just couldn’t take the warmer water. So I moved them into my 90 and before I realized my golden wonder ate them all .
I love my bluegills. I caught them when they were tiny babies a number of years ago.Mudminnow said:Not many people seem to keep U.S. native fish, so when I first collected a few (back when I lived in a state where all you needed was a fishing license to legally do so), I didn't know what to expect. But, they are awesome: shiners, sunfish, darters, mudminnows, etc. I really miss being able to collect and keep my own fish. But, keeping them was definitely better than I initially expected.
Sorry just saw this now, but if you're still interested the community is tank number one if you click on aquarium details by my name on this postKevinthebreeder said:What's their tank mates ?
