    It was well under 500 and he gave us 4 tanks, 2 huge 2 smaller, fish, filters, decorations, chemicals, and food. So it was a huge deal, but it is going to take us a minute to fix the mess.

    And you aren't the first to inherit a "mess" LOL - I've read real horror stories of the conditions of tanks people pick up - really neglected ones with really poor stocking - but you are doing great asking questions here.

    Once again, compliments for trying to do the right thing. MY last post was intended to be helpful, I fully realize you will need time to deal with the situation.


    that's some kind of cichlid, I'm rubbish at those.

    looks very familiar but the name won't come to me.

    This seems to be a colour morph of the common pleco

    this: looks like a sailfin pleco to me. probably Pterygoplichthys gibbiceps but that whole genus is tricky to identify without proper pictures with the fin raised. Doesn't look very healthy though, bit thin. These guys at that size enjoy just about any kind of vegetable (rinse well, blanch or nuke in the microwave, weigh down) and twice a week a bit of frozen seafood. Incredibly poop machines!

    The angles are a weird colour mix but look healthy enough. Once they're rehomed feed a frozen pea once a week. looks like an African leaf fish to me, Polycentropsis abbreviata. That's a challenge. Acid water lover, not that big but quite carnivorous, can easily try to eat fish half it's size. no clue, sorry.

    All in all it's a beginner's fish collection composed with little regard to compatibility. Good luck sorting that out.

    That is a ctenopoma or bushfish.It looks to be full sized and is a great fish for medium to large community tanks.It is a labyrinth organ fish,that will eat small fish.Large algae eaters are very impressive looking fish,but are nasty and territorial.

    you mean? You're probably right. Slightly bigger and a bit less agressive but still a carnivore.

    LArge algae eaters agression is often (but certainly not always) related to bad care. Cramped crowded tanks, no hiding places, bad diet.

    Ours seem fine but I want to take most of them and find them a good home as they are over populating the tank.

    in case it hasn't been identified yet the golden, elongated fish at the tank bottom appears to be a golden chinese algae eater (gyrinocheilus aymonieri).
    grows to six inches and acquires a nasty attitude.
