if these fish was in a lake i think they would be verry easy to catch, there is not 1 thing that i have put into the tank he will not eat ink grapes and raisens, but i have found doing this ends up in me doing a BIG water change 4 some reason (so no more fruit and veg 4 this guy)

thanks 4 the reply Shane

Hi Shane, sounds like perhaps your guppy had dropsy.

I was considering silver dollars, but I read somewhere that they have a tendancy to rip plants to shreads, so please let me know how you go with yours.

Katherine :)

You have another tank?
I never realized Shane has other fish. I always thought he owns only cichlids and catfish.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
