Oooohh...Dennisons would be nice! And you have the large tank they would need. Gorgeous, gorgeous fish. A bit pricey though but worth it and would look great with the Congos whom I also love.

What Rasbora did you get? Harlequins?
umm...I tossed my receipt out! I have clue ~ but I fell in love with them! I will look and see what a Dennison is!

When I look at this tank, guys, the fish are SO tiny!! But little schools every where! I am looking now, and the Rasboras I got have a black tummy, i think, and they glow!

Congos ~ I didn't see any of those I don't think.

And as far as the Discus go, Honestly ~ the only Discus I ever paid for I got at this lfs and its name was Ms. Pringle. You can see her on SD, Kymmie if you search me. She was my first and I kept her alone with an Angel Fish ~ had them for 2 years when I stumbled on to SD.

Is Kenny still there? I got all my fish from him. And Dan. I never paid. Who in the hell can afford them! It was good advertisement for them ~ I have met quite a few from there!

I love that fish. I almost went there again! Had to make myself keep.on.walking.

they are man-made freaks of nature. There, I said it.
Tell us how you really feel, woman! I checked out the Danios and I wasn't impressed. They were not all that cool looking. But ya know what I really liked, these fancy Guppies!!

Sounds like you got Harlequin Rasboras. Here's a pic of mine I had. Do they look like this?

I found the Dennison! I was going to get one! I can't believe iit ~ but it was much bigger than my tetras and I didn't really trust the staff.

It was beautiful!

Rummies and Harlequins look awesome together and both are great schoolers. I had them together when I had my 37 gallon and loved them.

Swordtails don't really shoal together as much as the others do. But it's nice to have a few. I have 1 male and 3 females.

I got my Congos at Capitol. I was just in there a week or so ago and they still had some. They're in the very back room by where SMUD used to be.

Okay ~ so tell me something. Do I have to be careful what I add to this tank now, since all these guys are snack size?

Yes, if you do decide to get Congo tetras get them when they're small. My adult Congos are around the 4" mark and will go after fry but they don't bother my full grown Harlequin and neither did they bother the full grown rummies when I had them. I haven't kept the Dennisons before but i suspect it may be the same thing with them. Maybe grow out the little fish you have first before you go for the bigger fish. Aahhhhh...I would go nuts trying to stock a 125 with community fish. So many fish I would want. lol
