Raphael catfish are not edible.

I got a 3" spotted raphael catfish yesterday, and I wasn't going to put a net anywhere near a fish with sides lined in saw teeth, so I tried to take it out of the bag with my hand. The second my...

All of them should be fine, aphids aren't toxic. I'd imagine they might have a bit too much sugar to be fed as a primary part of a fish's diet, but your guppies and betta will go mad for all the...

On Aqadvisor, up to about 115% is fine. Once your tank has had a few weeks to get the bacteria built up, you can add a bunch more fish, since all of yours are so small. Maybe a centerpiece of some...

It should be OK with the serpaes. It isn't as happy as it could be, clearly, but unless somebody comes along looking for a solo bleeding heart, it'll be alright.

Which salt-and-pepper cories do you mean? Corydoras Habrosus, the tiny little guys who get maybe 3/4" long, would fit very well. You need at least 6, preferably more, and they need room to move-...

In a tank that size, you're limited to either dwarf or pygmy cories, both of which are too small to hurt it. Also, they won't hurt your shrimp.

I don't think it can really be termed an intelligent behavior, though. If it's a species-wide behavior, more than likely it's purely instinctive. A bird isn't intelligent for building a nest or...

Betta sororities tend to collapse in very messy ways. B. splendens were bred to fight each other to the death on sight, they are not fish that you can keep together. They don't stake claims and stay...

Pretty much all fish will eat baby shrimp, excluding only otocinclus. Tiny fish like microrasboras will eat babies but can't kill adults, so they're your best bet. Outside of that, spotted blue-eye...

Catfish subscribe to the "I'm not here YOU CAN'T SEE ME" school of avoiding predators. You may have a strain that's just especially prone to that?

Go for two batches. You might lose a few if they're newly imported, and 50-60 green neons is a very reasonable load for a moderately planted tank. A huge school of neons would look great, and they're...

Even the smallest of the dwarf gouramis need a bit more space than that, they're intelligent and need exploring space. 5g might work, as long as they have lots of places to poke around in.

Less than 5g is probably a bit too small for even chili rasboras, though. Shrimp are your best options for tiny tanks.

Unfortunately, just about all of your fish need a larger tank than that, or will when they grow to full size. Your otos should be alright, but you need at least one more.

Also, your fish (excluding the rams) are all schooling fish that need more of their own kind. Your...
