Fish I Got Rid Of (6)

Common NameScientific NameReason
1 Agassizi Dward CichlidApistogramma agassiziiOne died and the surviving one started having the same behavior as the one that died. Before died I decided to trade it in
1 Kribensis CichlidPelvicachromis pulcherWasn't eating and hid from other fish
3 Pentazona BarbsPuntius pentazonaThey were red when I saw them in the store with dark red rocks, but changed to dull pale with my white sand substrate.
1 Gold GouramiTrichogaster trichopterusMoved him to another tank in a net breeder and the rest of the fish started being more active. I think they were afraid of his size
