Oh, we had some of those when I was little! My parents didn't know anything about fish, and my cousin who worked at a fish store recommended them to us, I think she just got a crash aquarium course from another ignorant employee. They were in a 55 gallon community tank-now I know why the other fish disappeared once they got big! They were also extremely light sensitive and would go wild if it were turned on or someone simply walked by the tank. They would zip around and bash their heads into the glass, then just float with their nose in the corner for a while. We thought that they would kill themselves someday. Now that I am older and know about fish it makes me so mad that stores sell these fish knowing what will eventually happen to them. It's awful :(
