I have a community tank with a shoal of Paracheirodon axelrodi (cardinal tetras), three Corydoras sterbai, a Chromobotia macracanthus (clown loach), and a few others. Next acquisition is planned to be a few Pangio kuhlii (kuhli loach) or a shoal of Hemigrammus rhodostomus (rummynose tetra).

I'm also digging on Corydoras habrosus and Corydoras adolfoi.

I'd encourage everyone to learn the binomial nomenclature of the fish that they keep. It's interesting to learn why they received the name that they did, and it removes any doubt as to what fish you are actually talking about. Interestingly, most African cichlids do not have common names.

I own a ten gallon that houses a Male halfmoon betta and 3 albino corys.

The other tank I own is a 55 gallon which houses 3 angel fish, 2 kissing fish, 2 opaline gouramis, 1 giant diano, 1 killifish, 4 tiger barbs, 5 emerald green cory cats, 1 pepppered cory cat, 1 rubber lip pelco, some tetras too.

*I know it is over stocked and I know that once my kissing fish get bigger I'll have to rehome them. The tank has been running for over a year now. I would not of mixed this fish but I had a 40 gallon that broke and had to do an emeregency buy of a 55 gallon. But to my suprise I have had to causulties.

I have pictures under the aquarium tab above my avatar.

I have a 6 year old 15 gallon setup with 6 Black Skirt Tetras, and 1 remaining Cherry Rasbora and an Apple Snail.

Tomorrow for my birthday I'm getting a 50 gallon tank which will be a normal tropical community tank.

I've always liked figure eight puffers. Do you like them?

Well, besides the bettas I have listed in my signature...

I have (in order of size [biggest to smallest]):

-Pearl Gourami (SilverSand)
-Comet(?) Goldfish (Sarge, Birdo "Derpasauros", Ripkin, Fancy, and Tomato [their names change a lot, since they were initially feeder fish])
-Glass Catfish/Ghostfish (Dragon)
-Amano Shrimp (Calligraphy - he's been sick for about two weeks now, very slowly getting better, but he can't walk due to twisted and broken legs 8C)
-Guppies (The-Feather-Tailed-Guppy-I-Call-Neon-Tiger [aka Tiger], Feathers "Divetail", Tera and Sera, Cerberus, Lemonade - Africa, SpeedRacer, and Phoenix died)
-GloFish (Robin - Batman died)
-aaand I have six baby guppies. Their Mom is Feathers, but I have no idea who the father is. >>

Can I count my turtle Samm, too? :D
Though, he'd be the biggest of all my creatures. >>
