Sigh, I wish I had room for a huge community tank. Kuhlis sound like a lot of fun and I'm glad you suggested them as betta-compatible tankmates. I think kuhlis get overlooked as tankmates for some reason.

That's an awesome pic, did you take that yourself? Are those the cheek spines I've heard about or are they barbels/whiskers?

No I got the pic off the net. They have barbels, whiskers around thier mouths and horns or spines on thier head. The spines are tiny and hard to see.

I will be picking up 2 or 3 in a few weeks to keep my betta company.

Ive got about 8 male fancy guppies with my 4 girls. All was fine till this afternoon at 12 when I turned the tank lights on. I immediately noticed a few torn fins on 2 of the girls (fortunately nothing major) and one with a few scales missing. But it seems like Queen Inara (she is definitely the culprit even tho I havent seen her misbehaving since she is the only one with out a mark) decided to play tag with all the fish in the tank and a few of my poor guppies lost a few pieces of their tail fins to her. Only 2 of the guppies tho seems to have gone under attack. For now the queen is in a breeding net and Im letting the others relax.

I've heard stories of male guppies hitting on female bettas. One even caused a betta to plaster herself to a tank wall for hours just to escape his unwanted amorous attention.

See I havent seen the guppies even look at the girls. But then I noticed that it is Inara that is a bully. So she is in a time out in the breeding net. Still trying to get out and try to attack the boys and girls in the tank. Maybe in a day the others will have made peace and she can go back. Ironically she was in the bag (we get our fish in bags half filled with water and oxygen) with Kaylee for a few hours and they had no issues. Also no trouble the first few days, she just turned a bit aggro over night!
