NEW FISH... and some new pics of the old ones

Yes i bought some new fish!!! The Petco JUST opened and they had some great deals and i just couldn't help myself... lol, of course they didn't have much of a variety yet..
I got 2 kissing Gouramis (ive always wanted them) and 6 Albino Tiger barbs. I know i need to keep an eye on them with my angels, but so far they aren't bothering anybody... and they were 99cents a piece! I was gonna get 8-10 but they only had 6 left! LOL. And i got a Gold colored snail.. they called it something different but im pretty sure its an apple snail... hes in my betta tank.. I really want to name him Gary but JC already has that name.. lol
EDIT: heres my pictures!!!


1- kissing gourami

2- Serpae tetras

3- my entire tank now... slowly adding more silk plants

4- gold snail

5- gold snail in betta tank

6- Angel pair

7- blurry albino tiger barb

8- another angel pic because they pose so nice

Yep, angels grow FAST!
It's probably because they eat like pigs!

i kinda noticed it hadn't come out yet, and when i took a closer look the body is part way out of the shell and the trap door isn't on it... ERG that makes me soo mad.. and it didn't retreat when i scoooped it up and well yeah, its definitely dead

My buddy had a pair of kissing Gouramis that terrorized everything in this tank after they reached full size (I think his were almost 9 inches) and he had to get rid of them.

yeah ive heard they can get pretty rough as they get older, but I really like them and ive always wanted a few. My mother in law had a full grown one but it never caused too much damamge. Plus I have a semi-aggressive aquarium so all of my fish can hold their ground pretty well. No aggression issues yet! And they haven't eaten my plants but they have picked on the java fern a little bit.

My two angels are still pretty small at the moment. Probably for the best though, it'll take longer for them to outgrow my tank.
