Re: 10 great community fish - suggested by PFK #21
yes neons and guppys would be fine together, but i would be 100% sure you want guppies befre you get them. as they will breed, which is nice and a novelty to begin with, but you may just become over-run... as you may find them difficult to rehome just something to bear in mind.

Re: 10 great community fish - suggested by PFK #22
Ah! That might not be the best idea then since we are quite limited for space and i don't know any other fishkeepers that would give them a home!!!
What about japenese fighting fish with neon tetras? I really like them but im aware they don't mix well with alot of fish cos of their temperaments, but from my research neon tetras are non aggresive

Re: 10 great community fish - suggested by PFK #24
would not reccomend barbs to begginers as they are fin nippers. i would reccomond the following:
pearl gourami
corydoras catfish
neons
zebra danios
angelfish

Re: 10 great community fish - by PFK #26
well if I had to give a worse fish it would undoubtedly be the silver shark sold small and on a recent visit to the london aquarium i was such an eye opener to see such huge specimens which were of actually a normal size for the species

Re: 10 great community fish - by PFK #28
yes it should be fine to have same sex shoals of live bearers i would actually recommend it as better then the alternative of overpopulated tank with no shops wanting to take them

Re: 10 great community fish - by PFK #30
males are in general the brighter an more flamboyant coloured in guppy's

swordtail's the male has the sword and plantys are much the same

and molly's also the same as far as colours go


you can tell live bearers apart by the males have a tube under the base of the tail where as femails have a fin

but a word of warning don't mix males of one specese of live bearer like swordtail's and platys/molly's with femails of the above as they can interbreed coursing deformity
