    You need to read up on fish! There's a compability thread in red in the Tank Set up thread.

    Cichlids belong with cichlids, freshwater belong with freshwater and gold fish with goldfish. All have different needs, requirements, water conditions, etc.

    That's why researching for yourself is so important. Fire eels get up to 18 inches long. Obviously, your tank would be much too small for one.

    The best thing to do is lots of research on the web on different fish and what is compatible, how large they get, etc.

    Fish grow up so what may work today will not work in 3 months.

    i forgot to mention that. They get big. They need bigger tanks for when theyre old. Mine was only 5 inches. I had no intentions of cramming him in there full size. Once my ghost knife and fire eel got big, they both went to good homes

    are you sure its neon tetra fry, tetras lay eggs and would usally have more then a handful of fry.they arent any records of breeding them either. my guess its platy or molly fry. they usally come pregant from the store and drop every month or so. they can have fry from 1 to over 20. plenty of plants will help the fry to survive, if you dont want the fry, leave the tank as it is, and they will probally be eaten. if the fry belongs to your platies. you will almost certain have fry every month or so.

    Actually the vast majority of neon tetras are from breeding farms, hence all the genetic issues with inbreeding. Breeding in a home aquarium take some skill though (or luck), since their eggs are very sensitive to light and fungus. It could be platy fry, but I'm sure woogie would have noticed the sudden decrease in size of one of the platies. Neons usually spawn after a big water change -> sudden decrease in nitrates. And most of the eggs/fry were probably eaten by the other fish.
    Foshizzle.

    fair enough. i wasnt sure about the breeding farms and didnt want to say anything. but as for home aquariums, i think its uncommon for them to spawn.the platies would have decreased in size, but the ballon mollies might not have been such an ovbious change. i hope they are neon tetras, if so well done for you, something your doing must be right for them to breed. maybe try to save just a few to see what they are. if they tank becomes overstocked, you can always sell them, if you catch 2 fry, and they survive to adulthood, they could replace the 2 you lost.

    Another option of a more ornate fish to add to your tank is a male Betta. They can do well in community tanks (mine is!) and they're pretty to look at.
    10 Gallon FW with Male Betta, 1 male Endler, and 5 Zebra Danios, 100 Gallon with Sevs, Acaras, Parrots and Loaches.

    Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming...
