Re: Updating caresheets #71
As a suitable hardy fish for a beginner I think the paradise fish should get a caresheet. I would be very grateful.

Re: Updating caresheets #72
While I disagree on this being a suitable beginners' fish, your wish is my command

Re: Updating caresheets #73
Oh really? I thought it was a simple species to keep on it's own? Instead of a goldfish like a subtropical betta.

Re: Updating caresheets #74
Have a look at the caresheet for the reasons it's not considered a beginner's fish.....that doesn't mean that as a beginner you can't successfully keep them, just that they have to be understood, and fall outside the normal expectations for a first tank

The more usual starting point for beginners is a mixed community, for instance....definitely a no for these. Usually beginners have smaller tanks, so the limited number that can be kept makes them less suitable too.

Re: Updating caresheets #75
Fair enough! I did read through the caresheet and I see why, thanks for making it.
