I have White Clouds and just love them. But what temperature are you keeping your tank? They like cooler water, I keep mine at about 72F.

You can get some very pretty platys, and they are rugged fish that breed like guppies. I enjoyed them when I had them.

Dude- before you put anything else in the tank make sure you ammonia test. If I recall this is a relatively new tank and it could be an ammonia spike that is killing your dianos- Don't put anything else in the tank until you can be sure you're not going to kill them.

After a long nap I decided I was going to rtuern them, get my water tested, but just get my money back. I beleve my snails will start cycleing my tank.

Good idea. Best to find out what's killing danios! They're tough little buggers. Not as tough as snails though. Maybe someone needs to start a business selling pond snails as tank cyclers. :)

I got enough damn Ramshorns, need some? :hihi:

I didn't know your tank was fairly new. The suggestion to let it finish cycling is a good one.

Have you ever seen those "Dwarf Sunset Platies"? Those little guys are pretty darn cool if you ask me. Petsmart has them for like $1 each. Says they can live in a 1g (don't try it!) so they must stay pretty small.

As for your White Cloud question, I've kept 4 of them together for about 9 months now. No problems at all *knocks on wood*. They even survived my cycle, which at the time I knew nothing about.
