Yeah, they look pretty blah, the cherry barb males are cute though.. The females look like they have stress stripes lol! If I get platies, I'll get mickey mouse ones :3

My rasboras are much more colorful than my Danios and Tetras... but not my Swordtails. Nothings as bland and blahh as a Tetra lol


The orange you see, that glows :)

Personally I would recommend the rasboras (harlequin, not regular) as they are the sweetest fish in my tank.

I don't care what Fish Stores tell you, Danios are a semi aggressive fish HAHA Mine pester the crap out of all my tank mates to the point they keep getting stressed and sick. I have one, she's loving called someone I cannot say on a family forum... urgh. You need at least 6+ of these to make them halfway peacefull lol

Our LPS has Mickey Mouse Platys for $0.99 right now, usually they are $6ea. STOOPID me bought Red Eye Tetras instead, and now I have no room and there are not many platy's left :( I love them, tetras not so much!

A school of neons are flashy but they're touchy nervous fish. Kinda like fishy chihuahuahs. I read somewhere that they have super sensitive hearing so you can't have them in a tank near loud noises like TVs or computers etc.

Your harlequins shine because you take good care of them. I must be thinking of the pet store harlequins I saw last night who looked very dull. Very unhappy. I also heard they have gold harlequins now.

Fighter: When I first got Goldi she looked exactly like a female cherry barb.

Is that so? I'll check out if they have rasboras here then, if I like them in the store I'll buy them.. Google makes them look very blah lol! I heard that swordtails and bettas don't mix.. Otherwise my lfs has pretty tangerine ones right now.
I'd rather have the platys than red eye tetras any day XD
Maybe my danios were all subdued by Handsome's awesome hugeness or something and behaved..

Lol! Goldi does look like a barb XD

Your danios were all subdued by Handsome's awesome appetite, that's what.

Definitely! The tetras aren't as subdued though..
I finally see the image you put up Pitluvs, they do look pretty! Like glowlights :D They must colour up when you bring them home, like bettas..

I have 2 females and a male Danio, I figured the male would be a bossy one because of the females in the tank. Nope.. my golden female is the problem! Little Piranhas I tell ya!

I have 2 adult (1m/1f) H Rasboras, and I picked up two juvies a few weeks ago. They are SO tiny!

Ya female swords have bright colors, and males have a long fin. My black male has a blue iridescence, which makes him shimmer lol Not good with Betta.
