Adding New Fish...

Jim's post (and Anne's -- waaaay down the board, about her *small* B. sids being "terrorists") brings up an interesting point...

Adding fish to your existing community tank can always be an adventure. Just because you have heard from another source that a certain fish is "peaceful," doesn't mean that *your* experience will be the same. Each of us has a different mix of fish in our tanks, and just because one person has had success with a certain species doesn't mean that we will.

It's always interesting to watch new fish that are added to an aquarium. Some make themselves right at home, while others almost appear to become "temporary fish food," with the other fish checking them out and taking exploratory nips.

It's always an adventure adding new fish.

Any thoughts out there about this?
