We have had the same 10 fish for the last 2 years. When we moved last year, we placed 2 plecostomus and 8 neon tetras in large jars and moved 622 miles north. The next day, we found our fish tank broken. So DAYS later I went to walmart and purchased a replacement... it had missing pieces! So I mixed and matched the pieces together and gave our fish their new home.
Just yesterday... one of our plecostomus fish finally gave in after a long illness. He is survived by his friends plecostomus and tetras 1 through 8.
