    for me, it will be 2.... a couple years ago, on a total impulse, I picked up 2 of some sort of Synodontis.... they have maxed out to 6"-8", pretty much hide all day, but when they come out, they are completely destructive.... destroying anything and everything in their path. One is a dark shade of grey with black spots, and the other, white with black spots. They each occupy their own side of the tank... I want to get rid of them, but each time it comes to me giving them away, I can't bring myself to doing it. I am not sure which type of Syno they are because I do remember puchasing them thinking they were of the smaller types of Synos... I will browse PC and figure out what they are and post sometime later.

    So what's your story, what do you have?

    Peacock Gudgeons. I have bought, and lost, 8 of them. Don't even want to think how much I've spent.
    My Xiphophorus clemenciae are going to follow if I cannot find a female replacement.

    Probably my clown loach. I love the little guy but I bought him several years ago before I knew better.

    Every male gourami that I've had - a blue, a pearl, and a dwarf. All of them have been bullies.
