Anyone has experience with those ?
The LFS has them, they are very pretty schooling fish but quite pricey.
Could they fit in a community tank ?
I can put them in the 40 gallon tank with the yellow labs or in the green terror tank as dither fish (if this works)

I have never understood all the threads of "what fish should I get?" Pick a fish you like ,learn all you can ,get set up ,and get the fish.....why so hard to do? :huh:

Denisoni fish grow to be about 10 cm big. They school, and need between 6-10 individuals to be happy. Males can be aggressive, and will fight with each other. Sensitive to poor water.
Likes water a bit cooler than most tropical fish.

Too big for a 40 gallon if kept in a school, too active for a tank less than 120 cms, and too different in their aquarium setup requirements to go with yellow labs.

oh I see what we are on about no they grow huge like Nina say 10/12cm and like to be in a school. They are nice though I have been tempted by them before.

The green terrors are doing fine , Broccoli the male has been cured of his bloat, they stopped breeding a while ago and I don't know why, they aren't eating much and the growth is really slow they are in their hiding place most of the time. Bakli the female (when not in her hiding place) is always busy rearranging the tank decoration.

It is not about being undecisive but about correctly setting up the tank, in a small country where you have limited choices and shopping online is not an option things are hard, I looked at different fish stores for each specie suggested here and couldn't find it, some stores have nothing but sick goldfish :S
When you suggest a specie I can't find I just have to look for it.
I was expecting a veija synspilia and a severum for my tanks after weeks of waiting they never arrived so I had to make new decisions went african and I am having trouble finding those guys

Im glad the GT are happy :)

I did mean to be rude to you Toni I just meant you have a plan and then change but I totally understand the lack of supply thing. Its same here I have an idea look in to it and the fish are either way too expensive or Im unable to find. Many people on here run through loads of ideas before ending on the right thing.

An example: :)

I went out to buy a GT and ended with 2geos and 2rainbows as they didnt have GT. ;)
