Video of all my fish
 
I plan to get pictures as well but it's hard!

Yes, I know it's dirty with algae but I'm working on it :) Just got an Oto and two Zebra Snails... although I suspect one is dead :(

YouTube - fish

Couple questions:Can anyone tell me what type of molly I have (i forgot) and the type of cichlid? My brother picked out the cichlid.Also, that little baby fish in the beginning - I have no idea what it is at all, it came in the bag with my zebra snail and oto lol.

ok the molly looks like a marble molly and the fry looks like a guppy fry (i have plenty and they look the same). question though, the molly looks pretty tore up is the beta nipping on it? i was under the impression that beta's tend to be fairly aggressive.. please correct me if i am wrong because that is the only reason i haven't gotten one for myself as of yet and i have my children keep them in tanks by themselves. (no not in those horrible two ounce containers they sell them in!! that's just cruel!) .....

My molly has white/transparent colors that end at his tail so it's just an illusion you see in the video, his tail is in perfect condition.

Actually, the molly and betta in my tank are like best friends, they follow each other every where and get very close to each other, often touching scales as they pass by. It's pretty cute lol.

As for aggressiveness in betta's, it really depends on their personality. I've had a few of them and all have got along well with my other fish. I've never even seen my current betta flare up. My other bettas would flare all the time at their reflection in the same tank.

oh thats cool thanks for letting me know.. as i said i have very limited knowledge regarding beta's..... i must say i love the vid of your tank..... how's the fry doing??

I can't find the fry lol, he's disappeared before though and came back I hope it's just hiding. I'd like to see it develop!
