agreed xD

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

You could probably do 10 lambchops. That also may explain why they are so skittish, since they are the smaller kind.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

Also how heavily planted is your tank? If it is very sparsely decorated, a lot of smaller schooling fish are going to feel vulnerable and be more prone to skittish behaviour. '

Fish generally are a lot bolder when there is an area of thick cover they know they can retreat to if there is a threat.

i have the Harlequin Rasboras and they are crazy little fish. Originally they were skittish and schooled but after they had the tank to themselves for a while they just kind of took over had a hard time feeding the betta i had in there because they would snatch the food

After a couple months I finally added my girls for my sorority, and they've finally calmed down with 5 bigger fish.

Sorry for the really late reply!! D;

Thanks so much, guys! ;D I'm going to the LPS today to get some more lamb-chops. ;) I already have 5 of them with 4 guppies in the 10 gallon. How many should I get today? 2?

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)
