We don't have female gouramis in North America, you need to special order them from Singapore or somewhere else in Asia.

Biokid, I really hope you didn't have more than one flame in your tank... They're like bettas. And mine never blows bubbles either.

Flame tailed guppies? I have two male flame tails and have never had a problem with them at all.

I let some of my biggest fry loose in the tank yesterday and they are fine with all the bigger fish. They're about 3-4 months old, I had them in the breeding net before.

Urgh big mistake, they were fine for the first couple of days, then I checked on them this morning and half have disappeared and a couple more have ragged tails from being attacked :( I put them back in the breeding net. They're about an inch, but my friend gave me his 5 guppy fry of the same age and they're much bigger and more colourful!
I think my double tailed guppy has gone too, one of the fry I put in the main tank :(
I have a 29 gallon tank with 2 balloon mollies, 2 female bettas, 2 platies, 3 adult guppies (had some recent deaths due to an ich outbreak) and all my fry of various ages. Going to be putting my cherry barbs and bristlenose catfish in soon too :D
