Current fish (includes all 3 running tanks): Polypterids, severums (of which I raised from eggs), gouramis, plecos (gold spot ones & a gurupa), loaches (zebras, yoyos, & a kubotai), macculocchi spotted silver dollars, an African butterfly fish, & Ctenopomas (a leopard & an ansorgii)

I stopped @ an lfs I generally don't visit yesterday, and found a tank full of gourami. It was a med tank, maybe 45g or so, and there had to be 25 gourami in it. . . I spose with that many, the agression issue doesn't find a target?

Anyway, they not only had opalines (for $1.99) but they had one lavender for $2.99. All were fems, though, so I didn't get any - that and none looked particularly healthy. Maybe the stress of the conditions made them all a little ugly.

30g long planted fw
1 blue gourami
6 rummy nose tetras
6 gold barbs
3 peppered cory cats
1 'maldito' cory cats=
1 yoyo loach
1 clown pleco
6 ghost shrimp

There are no coincidences.
