good to hear! as I said, i've never owned one! in the lfs they're all in a tank together, so maybe they get territorial when they get bigger. maybe a fight for female kinda thing? I don't know? or maybe its just the minority of bullies that gives them a bad name? it only takes a couple of wrong uns to tarnish the species as vicious!! i'd love one, but i'm a bit wary until I hear more positive stories about them being friendly!!Mine haven't really started getting territorial, yet... but they're still small...
OMG that's awful! well, that's def put me off angels! i've not heard of one peaceful one yet. every story about them ends in disaster!!once your angels are adults, they are carnivorous!!! I know. my dad had an awesome tank with 2 angels, and they ate EVERY SINGLE fish in there, and then 1 ate the other, and finally died!!!!
i've heard a lot about angels being territorial and will kill other fish and nip fins and generally be bullies of the tank. however i've not heard anything bad about gouramis....yet! I think they prefer to be in a male and female pair. i'm considering getting some. just waiting and researching still as not read enough about them to decide where would be best for them to go. i've heard loaches wouldnt get on with gouramis, but that's cos the loach will attach to the side of the gouramis flat body and eat holes in them . also I think with gouramis, should they try to breed, will build a bubble nest and get protective of it, so can be a little hostile to the other fish, but not sure on the level of agression??? :-\thanx for all your GREAT answers guys I'm now worried, do angels eat other fish or was that a SUPER BIG one??? Are gouramies EVIL too, ive read on sites that they're generally pretty peaceful! ???
guppies are fab! peaceful and fun to watch...they love dashing through the bubbles..... and so many colours to choose from!!Get guppies and cory's. They are so great together and fun to watch because they both do some weird things sometimes.
i've seen pics of bubble nests on here. I think its the male that makes them. he make loads of bubbles on the surface which looks like a raft. look pretty cool!Thanx again guys!!! ;D !!! All the information was so helpful !
I think I'll try some angels, guppys and gouramis, maybe some corys to help clean up ! I'll also put a few zebra danios or tetras in when I get the young angels.
Anyway, can someone fill me in on what a bubble nest is for a gourami, I've heard about it with some fish but i'm not sure exactly what they are ???. What size are they? What do they look like?etc. Do gouramis eat their babys?
