How Many Fish Do You Have? Which Fish Will You Buy Again?

I will tell you mine, you can share yours. I bought a 22 gallons fish tank and then 120 gallons and have been keeping fish. I have been more inclined towards having community fish aquarium. Aquarium stocking is not a discussion here. Discussion is about how many fish species currently do you have in your aquarium and what is in your wish-list? What fish you will buy in future? Good, bad experiences with aquarium and fish? Let me share mine.

22 Gallons Fish Tank

Its a cold water fish tank with temperature set to 26 degree centigrade.

One white Koi
One Shabunkin
Two fantails (Goldfish)
One Oranda (Goldfish)
One Red Cap Oranda (Goldfish)
One Common Pleco
One Sailfin Molly

7 fish in 22 gallons.

120 Gallons Fish Tank

This is warm water tropical fish aquarium with temperature set to 28 degree centigrade. Fish species include:

4 Denison Barbs
2 Red Wag Platy
4 Zebra Danios
6 Mollies (2 males)
1 Dwarf Gourami
1 Dwarf Flame Gourami
1 Black Ghost Knife Fish
1 Common Pleco
5 Skirt Tetra
4 Tiger Barbs
4 Bala (Silver) Sharks
4 Mono Sebae
1 Kuhli Loach
1 German Blue Ram
1 Albino Rainbow Shark
3 Yellow Finned Loach (Dwarf Chained Loach)
2 small Catfish (ID to identify yet)

That makes them 45 fish in 120 gallons.

I am happy with Silver sharks, Denison Barbs, Zebra Danios, Orange Finned Loach.

If I will have to start over, I will keep following fish.

Silver Sharks
Denison barbs
Clown Loach
Corydora

I also want to get cherry shrimps, snails and clam.

I will mention my wish-list in coming posts.

Goldfish respond a bit and recognize me. Black ghost comes out at night. Orange finned loaches are funny. They have got funny moves and are really really fast and active. Mollies, Platies and Zebra Danios remain at top of the tank. Gouramies remain at top of the tank. Pleco is growing very fast and sucks whatever it finds in aquarium. Tiger barbs – I won’t keep tiger barbs in community tank again because they seem to be not compatible not even with each other. They school but they have notorious repute. Mono Sebae sometimes get along but sometimes one chases other. They are gorgeous though. Rainbow Shark has its territory under one of the aquarium filter and it stays there when it takes rest. Orange Finned Loach also hide most of the time.

Anyways, what have you got in your aquarium? What is your wish-list?
