Well my big male angel has bullied his two bros to death and has bullied all my home grown guppies to death so I've decoded when it dies or gets too aggresive thats it for angels (just like that time with the SFF).

My mum wants a load of guppies.... byt i want something slightly alteranate to the common guppy... I'd get out my 3 gal if I wanted more, I suggested Rams but she said they are "allright" you see.... it isn't all my choice on fish :( even though its my tank.

So can I have suggestions that fall in to these catagories (not all of them :D)

Small-ish as in 6inch max
Pretty (she likes pretty and pink)
easy to look after
not very aggresive

:D:cool-1:

got neons and loaches but I'm trying to stay away for livebearers you see if you get 2 you end up with 20. And i dont like just having males or just female because in my experience they just bug eachother. Thanks for your suggestion though.

Don't know if they are your thing, but Pearl Gouramies tick all your boxes and are magnificent when they get big - especially the males when all the fin extensions grow out - be yoot i full fissshh.

Heres some pics, the pearl lace variety is the one to go for...male has all the extensions and at 4-5" they look absolutely gorgeous!
