Ah, these photos answer my prior question on tankmates. You take good pics. Have you ever thought of adding a background to your tank??

I keep meaning to pick one up, but I always forget. With 7 cats, 2 dogs, 5 lizards, 3 turtles, 53 snakes, 4 rabbits, a rat colony, a mouse colony, and only one tank, I tend to forget about the fish at the store.

You have that many animals?? All at one house?? :shock:
You've got to go to Off Topic Discussions and post some pics under "Other Pets"....

I forgot to mention. Apparently this guy is an anomaly. He never hides except a little behind the filter stem. It may be because he grew up to a 4" subadult in Petsmart because noone wanted him :( He was in a top tank so few people saw him and once he grew up, people only want the cute little babies. I had to take the little guppy sucker home.

i have one of those fish :3 its getting bigger and a suggestion! they like it when the tank light isnt bright they like it more along the lines a shade other wise they will be at hiding all the time. :/ so yeah just make sure to have live plants, low lighting, and warm temperatures. As for feeding if anyone else have a question feed it plankton mainly at night

A 55 gallon trash bag makes a great DIY background.

I have a trio of bushfish, 2 male and a female, I think, in my 110 with 2 Bichirs. I h\ve been informed by Mike Hellweg that sooner or later the larger bichir will eat the bushfish (and the smaller bichir), but I am keeping my fingers crossed and pumping a good supply of krill, silversides, and homemade beefheart preparation into the tank to forstall this.

I got these guys about an inch and a half long at Pestmart and the males are pushing 4" now, with the female lagging an inch.

53 Snakes? You may want to check with a professional about certain issues. (I keed).
