I am getting angelfish and are red wag platies and mollies compatible with the angelfish?
We had one anglefish in our 30gal until we got our 55gal and we moved it over and have gotten 2 more since then. Our anglefish had a little problem with our catfish at first but after a few days they were fine. Since then we have had them with our black skirt tetras, red eye tetras, mollies and plattys and clown loaches. We have not had any problems except for the tiger barbs that we had to return to the pet store. I know a lot of people would not advise many other fish but we had really good luck with our serpae tetras in with our angelfish and they are known to be fin nippers too. I love our angelfish though and we are very soon getting another tank to get so we can have more together.I have a question. I know angelfish do best in single species aquariums but I really want some other fish with them. So far it looks like I m going to get cory catfish but do you know any other types?
You may want to start your own thread so that advice given to you is not complicating Truman's own questions and thread.How about 3 bala sharks, 5 tiger barbs and 1 African featherfin catfish? I've always wanted angelfish , I found some platinum angels today but not sure if the tigers would stress them . They are in a 55 gallon tank
Ask, don't hesitate to ask. Many of us here want you to be successful, and we will offer any advice we can to that end. We also care deeply about fish and want yours to be healthy and happy, like ours are.Yeah the guy at the store told me the balas would be fine in the 55 gallon but after further research found he was wrong I have arranged for them to go to a new home already, the guy that gave me the wrong info was a dog trainer and knows absolutely nothing about fish. I was afraid of the tigers bugging the angels so I figured I'd do some research and find out first. I'm fairly new to this so figured I'd just ask. Thanks

There are ways to seartch by common name, for those fish that have a common name (not all do). If you know the gourami are anabantids (and you should), run the cursor down the list of species threads and it will highlight the common name(s). Another method is to use the Advanced Search function, type in "gourami" and confine the search to the anabantids, or the freshwater profiles if you didn't know anabantids, and it will list every profile with "gourami" in it. It is pretty easy to find fish this way.*The fish profiles are so screwy I can’t check the spelling because I don’t know the scientific name to look it up. Thanks for updating the fish profiles from usable to I have to go somewhere else to find out about the needs of my fish because I don’t know or wish to know a fish’s scientific name.
Both these issues are well worth considering. Would you be willing to make a post in the Suggestions section, here: TFK.com Suggestions and FeedbackHey Byron:
I think you are right that I could have searched the site as you pointed out but that is adding more work to get the information. I don’t understand why you all desire to make everything more complicated. I read your source code and have to say you all are not using all the possible features of XHTML 1.0. why not use java script’s mouseover to render both an image of the critter and provide the common name on a mouse roll over of the scientific name?? your admin or web developer can do it in a few minutes. Of course you could use css3 which is supported by most new browsers to bring common name visible on mouse over and then fade it to keep current rendering. There are many options besides searching which provides the page stickiness and increased usability.
I have thoughts about the form design of fish profiles but I am sure you are not interested due to concept ownership.
Have you considered developing a slide show for new members who are new to the hobby explaining such notions as cycling, water changes, stocking ect. it might be better than a new forum that separates them from other more knowledgeable folks like yourself.
