2 inches.:) They're not nippy compared to those vicious serpae tetras. I avoid serpaes, black skirts and red-eye tetras as they can be nippy although I have the most problems with serpaes among the three.:)

Try black phantoms and rosy tetras. I'm waiting for my tetras. I'm getting too impatient already.

I do. I forgot a set of pics featuring the phantoms. They're so addicting.

Here goes the pics...

I have never had red phantoms before. I'm definitely going to post more pics of red phantoms. Can't just satisfy myself into posting more pics of phantoms.


And then there are Silver-tipped tetras, diamond tetras, cardinal tetras, neon tetras, black phantom tetras, lemon tetras, glowlight tetras and emperors on my plan. I've had some of them before and I'm looking forward to keeping them again.:) I'm still a little leery about neons considering they are the ones I have trouble keeping.

I would love to keep Congos again but they are far too big and who knows what will happen to my red phantoms' fins with their big gnashers. Congos are so lovely and they just love eating insects on the surface.

Will try uploading others later if I can.:)

Female Golden Pencilfish


Male Golden Pencilfish
The most dominant pencilfish shows the full colors.

Golden lines are not seen in males having colors like these.

Other male...colors not fully shown..


Green Arowana
He bit my finger which is so painful. I was about to give him a cube of bloodworms but this one is so impatient. He consumes about 20 mollies a day. Right now, he's about 10-12 inches in size. I love to touch his back.



Don't get carried away with the background. It's only a plastic roll. I'm thinking of changing it to black.




I used flash as the arowana tank is dim.

Kuhli Loach

You can't actually see them. The picture shows 3 of them however but you can barely notice them.

Penguin Tetra
The leader of the group.:) He often eats a lot of insects falling to the surface.

Er..excuse the white ones which are calcium deposits which have been stuck there since last year although they're now in the process of being removed.

Red-tailed Rasbora
Also known as Rasbora borapetensis. I have 8 in the pond. This one has been evading from being caught as I wanted to move him to the pond but since he has been in my tank for long already, I guess I'll keep him.
This one is a bit blurry. Lately, he has been becoming very easy to photograph. Unlike last year when he tends to evade camera shots.





The ventral fins on the left are those of my male gold angelfish.

Siamese Algae Eater
He's 5 years old.


I'll take more pics soon.:)

No, I haven't. I'm eyeing my vacant pond to be used to breed mollies.:) As my other pond has 3/4 of its space covered in Elodea densa plants, then I can use those to provide food fro my mollies who can search there for microorganisms. My mother also made that suggestion last Saturday and I agreed to do so. I was no longer interested breeding mollies but since my aro is demanding a lot, then I'll do so. I just buy three large plastic bags full of mollies every week. The supply is increasing with the aro's demand for food.

Thanks, Daz and Cam for the comments.:)

Edit: I forgot to add that the aro's filter has been clogging frequently unlike before. I guess I'll buy a new filter. Daily water changes is not enough to eliminate his wastes.

Here's an update:
1. Giant Ambulia added.:)
2. Cardinal tetras to arrive soon.
3. Black neons did not arrive on shipment. Just when my lone black neon is about to be delighted to see his new companions.

As for the pics, no, I haven't touch my camera again.
