heck Canadian, I've seen some that are up in the 'K' category.
I like fish I really don't have to putz much with, aside from the standard water changes and gravel vacuum.

I see the Bosmani, I think I even saw a madagascar rainbow. they move so quick it is hard to identify them.

Thanks, I am disappointed they ate my beautiful plants, but they are cool fish and add a lot to the aquarium. The guy who sold them to me knew about the plants in my tank, argh. I should have researched more prior to purchase. They were just so big and cool I wanted to believe I could add them to my tank when he said I could.

My ropefish is out more lately, and yesterday I saw the small spotted catfish we added to the silver dollar tank. He was swimming all over the tank. That's only the second time we saw him in over 6 months.

I haven't been, but I have a whole bunch of those that my bristlenose never ate, so I can try them.

Those banded buggers eat everything I put in the tank and STILL eat my plants. I knew it might happen after I bought them and then read up on them. Oh well, they're really cool. I'll try different plants. Hopefully I'm not stuck with all fakies now.

Have you tried the hardy plants like anubias and java fern? I've had great luck with goldfish not eating them. And goldfish eat everything...
