I am wondering if I could put micro fish in with my bettagirl in the 5.5?

I know rationally it's not a goo drove, but Aokashi has microfish in with her betta and her tank is small.

I just need to plant lots of stems, right?!?

:P yes you do and fast fishies but mine was temporary... I had too many males and they were pestering my poor female to no end D:
So I threw them in with Kuro and had him teach them how it feels to be chased all the time>.>

Oh...pacific had these 'lamp eyes'.. near the tanks where the neon blue rasboras are... any idea what species they are? Thought they were like mine, but my aunt bought some and they look more like rice fish- theyve got blue eyes, pale greyish body but the orange on the caudal fins. Very long bodies, sharp mouth

Uncle had begged me to give him my normans lampeyes..finally gave him 2 begrudgingly... told him about pacific, so thats why he picked em up..and theyre not even the same species. X( He bought 3 of the neon blues and unfortunately, MY lampeye- probably the male has ripped the tails off of the neons..hm. One already died, not sure about the other 2 today but they were not looking too good last night. Never thought of them as aggressive fish but the neons are half the size of him too.

My nano fish seemed okay, Ive always had a problem with some fin loss...and I attributed it to poor water quality...I have a very very very sad pygmy cory with absolutely no tail at all (every other cory is okay)... some minor loss on the clown killies, occasionally some on the lampeyes but they grow back fast. Now Im wondering if its nipping thats causing it. I dont see any other symptoms like fish being lethargic, sickly... just.. bad caudal fins.

They are lamp-eyed killies (Poropanchax normani) I think. Wouldn't that make them the same species that you have? I've never seen them stock Ricefish, but they usually stock the lamp-eyes.



I couldn't keep them alive. Two went missing the first week and I lost one a month of the six I bought at Pacific.

Really? They look completely different than mine, they DID have norman lampeyes a while ago, but this batch seemed different- especially the orange bars on the tails

Quick GIS, they look more like http://www.afcd.gov.hk/english/conse...8_ricefish.jpg sharp mouth, orange bars. Maybe they bought the wrong fish.

Mine do well, I think I have 2 or 3 that made it into juvenile stage from breeding- but I have a lot more fish in there now and fry are delicious.

Hm, it's possible I didn't look closely at them yesterday, though I think it would have looked out of the ordinary since I stared at every tank.

Since quite a few of us went on Sunday, did anyone notice the lampeyes?
