My perennial favorite is probably Botia almorhae - though any of the community suitable botiine loaches are awesome. Siamese Algae Eaters kept in a group of 3 or more behave much the same way, and they are creeping up my list. I also have a relatively new Senegal Bichir who is quickly becoming my best buddy.

The favorites out of the fish I own are my kribensis and dwarf puffers. Of the two, the kribensis are definitely the better community residents.

Other favorites include some of the Malawi cichlids, Jack Dempseys and Jaguar cichlids, apistos, red line torpedo barbs, congo tetras, and giant danios.

Ugh....too ugly to be worth the tank size :) I say some kind of rasbora or a whole gaggle of cories (if you're gonna do em, get a bunch cuz they like having a group much more than just having "one or two"). However, if they're gonna be Bala food then there's no point wasting the money.

Full grown? Wow...I've never seen them for sale over 3" and I've seen some as small as 1.5". Still had great colors even that small. However, they still sell for about $30 a piece for the 3" ones and I think about $17 for the smaller ones, so I don't think I'll be getting any of them anytime soon.

Anyone ever had them? Any reason they're so expensive?

Yeah, these guys were about 5-6" each and absolutely gorgeous. But at $50 a bit too expensive for me!

Not sure why they're so expensive but I think it might be that they're all wild caught.

Somebody needs to spring for the $360 bucks, get a dozen and start seriously trying to breed them.

Those are some seriously pretty fish - like an SAE dreaming it was a Neon
