Wow, Black Tiger Badis from your LFS, lucky you! Species only, or a peaceful nano community?

Sounds good. What temp is the tank? Keep an eye in the temp because i tried my trio in 22C and they spawned when i first put them in but after a week they all go fungus and died but then so did alot of other fish in the tank so i cant be sure on the reason but just keep watch.

With me being a massive Gourami fan, I was rather please when I saw some stunning Colisa Fasciata.I haven't seen them for around 10 years in my LFSs so I was rather please. And they were a bargain at £3 each :shout: :drool: And I saw their spectacular cousins, Colisa labiosa which were also great. I really wanted to buy both species but I have enough Gouramis as it is :-(

i noticed someone mentioned... PETS AT HOME, THOSE WORDS ARE A SWEAR TO ME

i never ever ever ever ever ever ever buy from pets at home. infact whenever i go in there i send all their customers down to my lfs down the road. awful place. stock comes in on a tuesday all the way from up north to bristol, 3 hrs journey, the lights go off for an hour, and the fish are on sell a manager told me this! && they wonder why hald of their fish are dying or covered in white spot!!

UGH P@H is a disgrace, everyone i have been in has been terrible, oh and also jc aquatics in taunton were bad in my experience. gave my old community tank fin rot. was not happy!!

P@H offered me a job on the aquatics and i told them to stick it as i would be forever improving their tanks and warning people off!!

sorry for my rant :)

While you are perfectly entitled to your opinion on P@H, your post is not in the spirit of this thread, which is supposed to be about fish you saw, bought etc. ;)
