  • Short Congo Video

    The Congos are in the 55g now and they are coloring up really well, the video doesn't do them justice, they look like rainbows in real life!!

      Thanks, they have come back great! They are still trying to find out who's the boss since I keep moving them but they don't damage eachother thankfully

        I've never really noticed Congos setting up any kind of pecking order really.

          I definitely notice them posturing at eachother and charging, I assumed it was a pecking order thing?

            Lol I called that playing. They're tetras, they're constantly bugging the heck out of one another.

              Oh, okay! The smaller tetras I've owned would do that for a time and stop. I like it! They are so flashy when they're darting around like that

                Now you are making me want a school of Congos!!! I've always been drawn to these fish. In fact was going to add them to the 125G, but got a great deal on the Australian Rainbows. Unfortunately, the rainbows colors are so muted they almost look like white fish. Been a disappointment, sad to say.

                Your Congos are very active. Bet they bring life to your tank!

                    They are great Dena! I have been waiting for them for awhile (almost a year!) due to various things getting in the way but I'm very happy with them I have seen the rainbows go either way, I'm hesitant for that reason, some end up beautiful while others end up looking like a bait fish kinda

                    These guys are super active! There is a 55 to 75 change out in my future!!!! Very inobtrusive and gentle fish so far, they don't bother anybody and respect the angels territories to the utmost. Another cool thing about them (aside from the coloring) Is their Snaggle teeth! Some of mine have them sticking out already, I love them!! I thus the beleive they can be scale eaters thus the teeth.

                    I'm also planning on splitting this school (10M) down the road as I have access to females at a good price so you may end up getting some from me!

                    They're an active bunch too Sarah!! My angels are pro's at that! Its my fault, I take too many pictures of them so they just assume I'm trying to get them

                        I think my Australian Rainbow are mutts. I've had them for 1.5 years. And their coloring is the same as my Silver Dollars!! Honestly, I think that's why I got them so cheap. Live and learn. The largest female is at least 4 if not 5 inches.
