I had a couple of rainbow fish in my 40 gal tank. I really loved them. One day they were just gone!!!! I searched for them and they were not there. I was bummed and went into my bedroom just to see them happily swimming around in my wife's 90 gal tank. I must admit they seem better there. They are such beautiful fish.

I have a couple of clown loaches for my bottom of the tank fish. They are fun to watch. I got them originally because I had a snail problem. Loaches in, snails gone. After a couple of months they was not a single snail left. Silver dollars are pretty nice fish. I got 4 of them a couple of years ago. When they grew bigger than 2 inches after about a year I put them in my wife's tank.

LOL!


Someone gave me an old blood parrot years ago, I enjoyed it for the time I had it. After reading this thread and thinking about it, I went out and bought one for one of my larger tanks. So far he seems to be doing well, shy until I drop in frozen blood worms. He goes crazy for those. You have to be careful of tankmates for them though, since their mouths are deformed they can't eat as quickly and easily as other fish.

yeah ive thought about parrots with long finned Rosie barbs, always loved Rosies, bet they'd do well with parrots. fast enough to avoid being nipped, long finned slow enough to not outcompete slow goofy parrots. :P
