The fish at the left side in red color with a black triangle is a harlequin rasbora(rasbora heteromorpha).
Harlies are mistaken by beginners for "tetras", but they are actually rasboras.
Tetras=characins(family)
Rasboras=cyprinids(family)

If you're unsure of which one I'm referring to as harlequin rasbora, this pic will show you that.


This pic shows a Diamond Tetra(Moenkhausia pittieri).

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.

i like the fish.
how come you only have one clown ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Nice tank! I love how you made the plant grow into the rock
You should get a background for your tank :)

um i'll answer these questions as best as i can...

i only have 1 loach cos it was given to me by a friend and that's all i have at the moment... didn't buy anymore cos my silver dollar is getting a little aggressive so i'm just leaving them at the moment cos all the fish have worked out their pecking order.

the silver dollar is probably about 10-12 cm big (about 4/5 fully grown)
the loach would be around 8 - 10 cm big
and the sharks...
2 of them would be close to 12 or so cm in length (had them for a while now)
and there are 3 smaller one approx 8 or 9 cm

not sure on what the plant is... sorry

I am pretty sure if u've only got 1 bala shark that they tend not to live long enough to get HEAPS big (i saw one in a shop a little while ago that would've been close to 15-16 cm).
They are a schooling fish so if you have two or three the tend to eat much more.


i'm still coaxing my lancer out of its little cave for long enough to catch a clear photo


here is a very blurry pic of it's head..... SORRY!

Hi Bret,
I can't identify your "black lancer" due to blurry pic but we'll gladly wait until you get a clearer pic.:D

I do believe the plant you have growing onto the rock is an Anubias

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.
