Hello from NY

Heres what I got:

1 very large pleco
1 fantail goldfish
3 golddust mollies
2 mickey mouse
4 neon tettra
5 female betta
1 male betta
2 catfish
4 mickey / golddust hybrids
1 black mollie
1 white mollie
3 silver fish with black spots
3 golddust / black mollie hybrid

These fish all seem to get along in a 46 gallon bow front
I have 2 different types of filters on here and a couple of live plants

See my profile pic to see what it looks like.

If anyone wants pics of a certain fish, let me know

Hello, thanks for joining us. Unfortunately, a goldfish really shouldn't be in a tank with tropical fish, as they like cooler temperatures.

Hes been there 5 years! See this is why people need forums like this. Had I known your info, I wouldn't have kept him in there... The pet store kid said it would be fine. :-(

Hi and welcome!!!! Yes, i will second the goldfish situation. Goldfish are a coldwater species of fish and the rest of your guys are tropical. Take the advice from the lfs with grain salt- most of us on here have gotten misinformation from a lfs in the past. Just make sure you do your own research first & you will fine!

Hi and welcome!
I agree with RedSea and jlk. The goldfish needs a new home.
You have a couple of other issues with your stock list too.
IMO you are over stocked.
The pleco is probably a common and they can get to 2 foot long. He will need a new home.
Neon tetras need schools of 6+ to feel comfortable and not feel nervous. Keeping too small of a school will result in the fish being stressed.
There should be only ONE Betta in a tank male or female. Females are a little bit more tolerant of each other than males. I would get them out of there ASAP. Very stressful environment for them.
What kind of catfish are they?
Mollies are quite dirty fish (poop alot) so IMO you have too many if them too.
Over crowding can lead to poor water conditions. Both can cause stress and stress makes fish more susceptible to disease.
