    This is just a corner of my new tank. I have my Veil Tail Marble Angelfish in a community tank of about 30 Dalmatian Molly, 1 male betta, 1 sumo loach, 1 pleco, 2 goldfish, 1 balloon head gold fish, 1 octoinclus catfish and one cory catfish. There are some ghost shrimp in there as well for food if they choose, survival of the fittest I guess lol. So far everything is good and everyone is getting along fine. The molly school often, and the betta has more room than it did in the 10 gallon with a few molly I had set up before. I am planning on getting/growing water lettuce. Do you happen to know anything about that? I am new as of today and also don't know how to create my own thread.

    Hope this information helps!

    Sorry, past my early west coast bedtime, but goldfish, a lot of mollies...in what size tank was this? This is the same tank from almost a year ago? I'm thinking not...since this was from last year.

    I'm having trouble following after such a very long time...but yeah, it was kinda negative, if this was your thread & you haven't changed anything in all this time beside you user name. What fish are left? How are they doing?

    If this isn't your old post, start a new 1. In the upper right corner of each forum is a "post new thread" blue tab. Please use it to help us understand what you need help with.

    Tell us all about your tank: size, fish, water parameters, problems etc. We'll help if we can, but we need more info.

    I'll be nicer in the morning, I promise ;)

    Ally, welcome to the site! Crankiness and all! LOL! Sometimes it hard to sort what's going on..

    Interesting setup you've got going on there. That's a pretty heavy bio load, so hopefully you're keeping up on large weekly water changes.

    You don't typically see goldfish mixed in with tropical fish, because they're not really designed for long term exposure to tropical water temps.

    I have a pair of rescue platys in my goldfish 55g and have for some time. The tank remains room temperature which can range from ~65F to 80F in the summer. The platys do fine.

    I'll try to be nicer now, sorry again. Past both our bedtimes tonight & last.

    Maybe Joel (FreshyF) can start a new thread for you.

    My first thoughts, I see temperature incompatible fish, especially angelfish & goldies. What size is your tank? They all "seem" to be juvenile fish, but it's hard to judge size from a pic.

    How long have you had these fish? Have you tested for ammonia, nitrite & nitrate? How much & how often do you change water?...& that's just the beginning of questions! Not just me being a B!atch, we all need to know so we can help you...& we do want to help, truly.
