if these fish was in a lake i think they would be verry easy to catch, there is not 1 thing that i have put into the tank he will not eat ink grapes and raisens, but i have found doing this ends up in me doing a BIG water change 4 some reason (so no more fruit and veg 4 this guy)

Hi Shane, sounds like perhaps your guppy had dropsy.

I was considering silver dollars, but I read somewhere that they have a tendancy to rip plants to shreads, so please let me know how you go with yours.

Katherine :)

yeah i will do, i have had them in the tank with the real plants 4 about 2 - 3 weeks and have not seen them mouth the plants once, but its still early days :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

:shock2: You have another tank?
I never realized Shane has other fish. I always thought he owns only cichlids and catfish. :mrgreen:
