My friend just got 4 red eyes to go in her 30 gallon with 4 zebra danios, 6 harlequins, and 7 platies (whom i raised). Does she have anything to worry about? Would it be possible to bump up the schools to 6 each?

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. :)

I would just watch them, if you notice them picking at other fish add a few more. You might have the same problem with the danios.

Sorry for the late reply XD

Gonna add fire eel to my list of wants. They might get up to 3 feet but they kind of curl up a lot so they don't need as enormous a tank as their size implies.

You and Olimpia need to start your own aquarium! I'd certainly come visit it!!

PocketExpert Guide 500+ Tropical Fish. That's not the exact title, though. I can't remember the exact title, it's long.

One of the ways I've found a lot of fish is going to an online fish retailer like liveaquaria and looking in the oddball sections. Lotta strange stuff in there. Also having a friend like Olympia helps, too!
