The other fish thread

Here we can talk about other fish, invertebrate, and other aquatic animals we own besides Bettas!

I have

1 Cory Catfish
1 goldfish
1 Pleco
5 Ghost Shrimp
3 Snails

And will be getting 2 African Dwarf Frogs!

Rather than ADFs, BettaMiah, shouldn't you spend the money on some more cories to boost the school? They are social fish. :) Social fish in groups = less stress = less chance of getting ill, and cories are pretty susceptible to stress.
Not meaning to be rude, just offering some constructive criticism. :)

I have 3 panda cories (I would have four, but every time I have had four I've lost one, so I think the Fates are trying to send me a message), 10 gorgeous ember tetras and my RCS. I love to watch them trundling around, landing on my other fish then jumping off in fright, crawling over my hand during water changes, walking upside down on the surface to eat floating food...I love my shrimps. And their 6 million offspring.

I don't love my snails and I want them to go away.

I have a boat load of other tropicals, my list is in my signature. The swords are my favorite, Danios were my first and my dwarf Gourami Ryu has the most personality. I wish I had big tanks full of tropicals. So many option with them!

I had a community tank with 3 angels, 10 rummynosed tetras, 5 golden barbs a family of bristlenoses who kept breeding, a rainbow shark and a siamese algae eater...they all died because the tank smashed in an earthquake...and now I only have bettas.
Fir my new tank I'm debating between african cichlids or an awesome planted tank with discus and rummynose school....

I have 5 imported guppies (bluegrass and albino full platinum) and their four fry.

I also have some Clown killifish, which I house with my albimarginata pair. They are around the size of a large fry, and the males are always sparring and chasing the females around.

Eventually I plan to start up an Australian native biotope using Pygmy Rainbowfish and Spotted Blue-eyes.

Cool! Does anyone have saltwater fish?

And I can't get more Cories for now. I don't have the room. But I will eventually. For now I guess Kia will just have to keep thinking she is a Goldfish.

Unfortuanately I bought them when I knew nothing about them, so right now they are in a 14 gallon tank but in a couple of months my uncle will give me a double filtered 55 gallon for them and mature filter media.
