My mom got her ears pierced from a friend in college who "borrowed" her doctor father's piercing gun. They numbed her ears with ice and after one lobe, she said, "Forget it, just pierce it without numbing it." Holes are still there after 30 some years.
Schooling fish like rasboras and tetras are sometimes used as "dither" fish for shy dwarf cichlids but even so, the schooling fish need to be fast and have a place to hide.
What the heck is a "miniature" goldfish? Someone had two in a 30gal, along with two feeders, two bottom feeders, and two very stressed betta girls.
EDIT: Yes, but it wasn't known as AIDS back then so hence AIDS still didn't exist. The virus did but the virus we know as AIDS didn't. *splitting hairs*
