My other part of my fish tank family, the plecos. I think about selling the leopard pleco as it is always sucking on Gekkie.

Wow! Absolutely awesome, I love that giant gourami, he is an absolute beast. How do you rate these fish as tank mates, maybe I should add it to the list on the website of good tank mates if of course you have the room

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Your breakfast pic.

Is that a lutino oscar with black fins or is it just the camera?

This GG is a female and when I got her 2 years ago, she was only 4cm big. She grew up with oscars and she don't mind them. Some GG can get aggressive and will bully any size fish to death in a day or two, it is mostly GG males that will do that. Just remember that if you add a GG to an aggressive oscars tank, that oscar will end up dead in a day to 2 weeks. If a GG is kept alone in a tank and you add it to any fish tank, it will definitely kill almost all your fish within days. If you want a GG you need to house it with fish that will allow it to grow up without to mush aggression otherwise the GG will become a bully and payback will happen with you loosing your fish except your GG.

The strange thing in my tank is that the Giant gourami protects the lemon and the small albino tiger oscar the whole day.

most of my friend who are keeping GG always boast them as very good tankmate of an oscar... the only downside is, it grew up so huge that there is no more left for any tankmate LOL!

love the GG I miss mine loads he was great with the oscars and acted like one. I think they make great tankmates just need a huge tank to have both.

Nice Pics

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)
