    Would it be fine in 76 degree water with bettas?

    Sakura may be giving me her rummynose though as she is tearing down a tank, maybe, so I think shrimp might be a better option. I have also heard cherry shrimp will eat hair algae.

    Haha! You called it. I'd put my 3 goldfish in there and add another 2. I actually plan to upgrade my 55 gallon to a 75 when I have the space and money. As for oddball fish I'm really not too sure as a lot of those need large tanks. What about some killifish? Not very common and males are just gorgeous. I've been looking into the loricariid catfishes recently; maybe you could do a river setup with a loricariid catfish in the substrate. Do you have any native fishes small enough to fit in that tank? Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I was caught in the transit systems of the western world for 24 hours.

    Thats the hard part I like them all! I will see if any of the petstores around me have any blue platies as those are super nice looking. I saw Petco had female cherry barbs so I may get them and a few males.

    I neeed to check if my LFS has any amano shrimp, I dont want to order them online as shipping and almost retail value suck for the wallet. I am gonna see about getting my light hung and put higher so the tank wont be getting huge amounts of light causing alage.

    I don't know which on I want is the problem. The plagues I wouldn't mind them giving birth, as the other fish should eat them, which will be good food. Do any of those eat or nibble on hair algae as well?

    I could also do a bigger school of neon tetras or rummynoses.

    Hey how many female platies do you think will be fine in my 15 gallon? I want some more fish to look at, I'm not sure if I want cherry barbs or platies though, input?

    Actually I haven't been out that way.
    South to Peterborough or Belleville or west to Toronto. Napanee, Ottawa and Kingston are places I haven't really gone shopping.

    I've heard conflicting things, too. says it's exclusive to dwarf gourami. I've seen some sites caution against buying honey gourami that have been housed with dwarf gourami as honies can pick it up. I thought it might be a virus specific to gourami, but then I found an article in PFK that talked about a scientific study in which Murray Cod became infected with the virus after sharing the same water with dwarf gourami (do a search for dwarf gourami virus; it's the first article). Seriously Fish also claims that it is transferable across species but doesn't provide a source. So to be honest, I don't really think anyone knows for certain. I just know that I don't want it in my tank, so I'm going to stay away from dwarf gourami.

    Thanks for your message, Olympia! Things just got massively busy, and back pain has been keeping me away from the computer. :( Hopefully I'm back now, though!
