I voted Guppies because they look a lot like bettas IMO. They have longer caudal fins in FANTASTIC colors and patterns! <3 I saw one at Petco today that looked like a leopard! <3 GORGEOUS! <3

My Ghost Catfish cannot be replaced. :)

Yes, he's a schooling fish, but I have just one. >> Dragon.
He gets along very well on his own though... and I like knowing he's Dragon and I don't confuse any others. |D It's not like they have easily-spotted distinctive marks... all Ghost Catfish are completely transparent, so yep. <<

Yeah I have a leopard guppy, he didn't like the two other males I had... so he killed them >.<

OP, I have two girls named Thelma and Louise too! However, Thelma is a betta and Louise is a platy =)

....Just keep swimming...

I like the Tetras and miss mine I like the brighter ones like the neons and black neons, active and pretty to look at in just about all tanks, Also my other favorite would be the Danios I like the zebra ones the most... Or the glo fish they are the same as a zebra danio just modified to have the neon colors.

My Fishies:
Mushu
Osiris
Sonic
Violet
Oscar
Buddha - R.I.P
Buddy - R.I.P
Velvet - R.I.P
Gwen - R.I.P
Rainbow - R.I.P
Ruby - R.I.P

YEah I've heard people say not to have glo fish in with bettas but they are just zebra danios, they are just fine. Mine get a little nippy and chase each other but that's it.

....Just keep swimming...

You can actually get him to eat? Ghost catfish are supposed to stop eating in groups smaller than 4, and eventually die of starvation and stress related causes.

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

He ate when I first got him, and he hasn't stopped. Hyper as all heck when he sees food. (He especially loves bloodworms. Not that that's relevent right now, lol)
I've had him now for nearly a year.
And there were only two others at the Petsmart anyway. I think somewhere I said he was the only one, but yeah... the other two didn't look so good. D:

I dunno, maybe he's just the oddball.


I also have a GloFish (that's a schooling fish too, right?) that's fat and happy. By himself. But he did have a group, my Pearl Gourami just ate those ones. >>;;

Cories! Guppies, Mollies, and Platies, while somewhat social fish, do not really "school". Or do they?
