    fish, oh my....I use to have cichlids (sp) there was one I can't remember the species but they are yellow with black top fins, but there are so many really cool cichlids, guppies of course, I love the cobra skin ones.  Neons and there's another, royal neon?  something like that they are bit bigger.

    hmmm, well, decide on the size and whether they are community fish or not, then go from there.  Bunch of small ones or just a couple of big ones?

    at one time I had a 55, 40 and 2 20 gallon set up.

    angelfish.....check out the breeders on youtube, some amazing fish.

    Angelfish are probably one of the ones I will end up getting, they're fairly good sized fish. I think I would like a few bigger ones with some small schooling fish. The tank is 10 gallons and planted, so I can get a fair amount of fish in there

    I use to have some guppy's and some molly. a fish turned into a couple hundred. I recommend guppy. It is so fun to see the thousands of color's they can be. Plus you can easily get them off Craigslist dirt cheap from someone who turned 3 guppy's into a thousand guppy's or petsmart

    Get some guppys they are the best fish in all of petsmart.Beats out those nean tetra by miles.Better then molly's which is saying a lot.Guppy's are awesome. you need some 2 inch albino catfish to clean your tank. They are  very hardy and only grow to 2 inches
