I got three leopard danios as the introductory fish for my kid's 20g high community tank.

Very pretty fish and extremely active!

Talking Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

A couple of days ago, I was contacted by a local aquatic club member to adopt a blue paradise gourami from someone moving to PA. Since my 55 was a little low on stock, I figured I would give the little guy a good home.

Then came the familiar itch... (caveman grunt) "Tank need more fishy!" So off to a couple LFS! I came home w/ 1 gold mystery (Apple) snail and 6 small to medium Angels. I have to look again, but I know I have 1 small, all-black angel (starting to look like a half-black), 2-3 medium Altums (1 may be a marble), and 2 medium golds. I really wanted a Koi or Marble Angel, but this will have to do until MTS pushes me to finally buy the 90g!

There's also the 28 Euro that I just took down that I could put a breeding pair into. It still has 4" of water and all of the gravel. I want a Koi angel so bad, I'll breed and sell as many fish as I need to get one... or two! ;)

In another week or so, when the bioload levels off, I'm going to add another 3 diamond tetras to the 4 I already have. Then I think the 55 will be fully stocked.

Aquaholic since 9/2009, and I don't plan on going to AA!

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

Just put two *tiny* albino cory cats and six black neon tetras in my quarantine tank. I hadn't planned on adding to the two black neons I took in, but at 62cents a piece, I simply could not resist!

current tanks:
20gal: one small fancy goldfish, 4 mystery snails
10gal: many mystery snail hatchlings & 2 female guppies
55gal: 4 juvenile blood parrots & 5 giant danios, 2 gold tetras.
55gal: 10 mystery snails, 1 CAE, 7 guppies and 6 cory cats
wishlist: 75+ gal for BPs before they get big

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

Bought a 80G tank from a lady this weekend and it came with multpie residents:
1 Jack Dempsey
1 Featherfin Catfish
1 Leopard Pleco
1 Blood Parrot
1 Blue Gourami

I added
1 Red zebra cichlid
1 Chisawasa cichlid

The Featherfin has Lateral Line Disease and the Jack Dempsey has popeye in one eye which kinda sucks but they are both beautiful and basically fully grown. Plus they had nowhere else to go. Just have to deal with it. Any suggestions are welcome.
