  • Does anyone regret buying a certain fish?

    Just wondering if anyone had any regrets buying a certain fish for your tank?

    My biggest fish purchase regret: Zebra Danios.

    They were just nippy and aggressive with each other. I kept buying more hoping they would chill but nope...never again. Thankfully I found someone who wanted them.


    Another were Black Neons. I didn't see them, they blend way to much that they were practically invisible.

        Platies! We bought them when we didn't know a lot a of fish because it was a variety we were familiar with. The males harass the females and are probably the culprits behind my BN pleco's fin problems. The red wags are too dark and blend in to the background and of course the constant threat of fry.

          Hmmmm can't say I regret any fish I bought Snot was and is a monster but I love him and he will be tested in the big tank again Thursday if he misbehaves though he will be going to a new home...... unless our plans to move come through and I can upgrade him

          I sometimes regret getting eques cories instead of adolphoi because they are so shy but when I do get to see them I do love watching them snuffle they're just so skitty

            Guppies. Those boys were always fighting. Constantly. It made me anxious. I also regret my honey gourami who is a bully and my two peppered catfish who are gigantic and lazy.

              Zebra danios. Imo they are psychotic. I still have one left and I think he will live forever just to annoy me. And the red serpae tetras. Very pretty but very nippy.

                Guppies, mollies, rainbow shark, blue emperor tetras..and while my zebra danios are actually really calm little buggars, they're just kinda meh in my opinion.

                  Pike livebearers. They kept eating each other until I finally sold the last of them off.

                    Hmmm my green cories and the tetras, but my reason is stupid. They were both an impulse buy, the cories I was gonna get neons and the l lady said a 40 wasn't big enough for their activity level (I didn't believe her but since I'd done no research prior, I opted to be safe). Kinda wish I'd gotten orange von rio tetras instead of my gold pristella tetras since I want gold rams in the future.

                    *shrug* I still love my green cory wolf pack! they weren't my first option though, so it's no biggie.

                      Ohhhh, let's see...

                      I recently (a month or so ago) bought two long finned blue danios, thinking they would school with my zebras. Instead, they picked off all but to (I had like 8 or something) and then moved on to bullying my male Platy, who later died, ripping up my goldfishes fins (and teaching the platies to do the same!!), and then to terrorizing eachother when I moved them to a tank of fish bigger than they were. There's now one left, and he's working on my last female Endler (the second mysteriously disappeared durring the tank swap the other day....) and the male Platy in that tank, as well. I' surprised he's not picking on the betta....

                      And one of my recent goldfish purchases, a calico comet (it's supposed to be a Shubunkin, but someone missed that memo when breeding them). He is not the one I picked out. This is why you always stay at the tank and make sure you get the fish you want. I didn't even realize until I got home. Clearly put a little too much faith in Petco that day LOL But he is in the pond now, probably loving all that space. And when I finally get around to weeding out my goldfish collection (cause lets face it, I need too!) he'll go to my friends pond.

                        Oscars! They kept biting me cause they'd get too excited when I was feeding. Drew blood every time!
                        Also Platies! I bought some from Dillon *glares* and they multiplied like crazy.

                          Glad I'm not the only one with that problem! Only, I was like 5 at the time. That fish knew that if he jumped at me, I'd have a heart attack and drop more food in in haste of NOT getting my hand ripped off!
