Paradise fish are NOT generally good community fish, and can be very aggressive. Paradise fish are omnivores, eating plant and animal based foods. They might really like a live plant snack. I don't have any personal experience, but had a dwarf gourami that loved to eat my live plants!

thank you for the reply!

i have actually seen no agression from my paradise fish. (just floating plants that are not supposed to be floating, which i have not caught him doing either)

he is kind of a loner but isnt agressive even during feeding time.

i had never seen or heard of paradise fish when i got him

i guess im just lucky!
