No sex in the champagne room!
I have a 50 gallon freshwater aquarium that's been going for about a year and a half. Most of the fish in the aquarium were given to me by the old aquarium owner (that was part of the deal :). With the fish she gave me, 4 of them were platies. I started with 4 of them and within about a year they multiplied to about 50! I finally had to give them away as I could see I was running into a real problem. So now I have some space and I am looking to stock some more fish. I have some potential fish in mind, but I want to make sure they won't breed like crazy! Can you guys tell me if these species will keep the hanky panky to a minimum?
Gouramis will do a good job at taking care of any fry. Just watch how many you get as they can be territorial. IMO stick with 1 or a group of around 4 so aggression is evened out. Be careful around dwarf gouramis, they have a tendency to die for odd reasons, like no reason at all.
OK thanks for the responses! I was getting worried because I read that the danios are quite easy to breed. I definitely plan on getting at least 2 gouramis of some sort, so hopefully they like to eat the eggs!
In my personal experience, gouramis can be nasty fish...both attitude wise and cleanliness wise.
