just thought i'd say a proper hello and welcome to the wiki! we love new contributors hehehe! there's only so many fish that we know about, so the more cooks the better! if you need any help with anything just jump on any of us and ask, we've also set up a sparkly new forum, the link is over there on the right underneath "site help", it's a bit sleepy being that only 4 of us are registered so far! --Cat 07:01, 25 March 2008 (CDT)

i disagree about the comment with the neon tetras being in a trio. they may shoal with similar tetras (glowlights or black neons) but really would be happier with their own kind. with this being a "beginner fish" i wouldn't want to encourage others to keep this in a trio, especially as they may put them with any other tetra, neons would avoid tetras like black widows and would be shredded to pieces by serpaes (as my brothers were). --Cat 06:28, 26 March 2008 (CDT)

Maybe I should have been more specific then becuase there are obviously differnet sub-catogories within tetra and they are certainly fine with other similar shaped ones like cardinal, black neon, glowlight etc (Adam2307 06:33, 26 March 2008 (CDT))

good plan batman. i just don't like leading people astray! --Cat 07:48, 26 March 2008 (CDT)

Hi Adam, unfortunately my internet is broken at home at the moment so i can't do any uploading. Don't worry about the copyrights or anything, upload photos and we can edit them and add things afterwards ^_^. I'm not sure what you mean a link from the main page? I've added links in both the platy species pages and linked it back to the glossary also. --Cat 09:34, 7 April 2008 (CDT)

re: latest update - you don't have room for a clown loach, and they need to be in groups of 4-6 or more. --Cat 20:53, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

surely it would make more sense to get another polka dot than force a lonely clown loach to be friendly with alien loaches? and to have to have a future upgrade to a 6ft tank, which you may or may not be able to provide in the next few years? there was an excellent article in practical fishkeeping recently with someone keeping adult clowns in a very large tank, there was about 10 of them or maybe more, i've never seen happier clowns! any fish will make the best of a bad situation, but it's not really fair on the poor thing. --Cat 09:14, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
