    Re: Feeding Garters Shrimp? Possible?

    I don't think any of my fish would let me pet them :P

    I have:
    2 Male Betas
    1 Female Beta

    1 Platy
    2 Black Skirt Tetras
    1 Fancy Guppy
    1 Plecostomus (algae eater)
    2 Sword Tails

    That's my freshwater fishy collection
    Thamnophis Sirtalis - Charles

    Similar to mine. Throw a gourami in there, they won't disappoint.

    Nope. He's 3 times their size but is the nicest fish in there. The littles one picks on everyone. (tiger barb, they're freakin mean) the gourami doesn't. His name is Bud.

    I had Kissing Gouramis that I had to take out of the tank because they were nasty!!!! Yes Tiger Barbs are nasty little fish but very pretty! I think we are getting off topic again!

    It was my understanding that touching and/or rubbing a fish, disturbs/damages their slime coating which isn't a good thing.

    Yeah, i started thinking about that and i try not to touch him too much..... never do it anymore. It was just cool seeing such a calm fish.

    I had betas that would leap out of the water and take brine shrimp off of a stick.
