I have shubunkins in my community tank with fantail golfish, Red Caps, Bala Sharka, Golden angels and Honey Gouramis. They all live peacefully, no ones ever attacked the other. Infact my shubunkins seem to be the most peaceful of the lot :) I guess you only shouldnt be keeping them in cramped tanks with other fish.

I had shubunkins years ago with fantails and blackmoors they were all fine together never had any issues.

(Angels and Gourami should not as a rule be kept with coldwater fish though)

Not really,it is a regular complaint where i work that straight tails(goldfish,comets,shubunkin)have killed fantails by constant pestering !
Its a suck em and see u might get away with it you might not!!
In my experience mostly not!
Keep good water = Keep good fish!!

Looks like we have another angel fish situation, some can work together others can't. Keep a careful eye on things and see what happens.

its all gone well so far, the moors and shubunkins aren't really together much. My shubunkins are always looking for food haha, and my black moors are either swimming near the bottom or near the top, not really swimming round the whole tank.

do shubunkins, goldfish, black moor and other types of coldwater fish get territorial?
because they sort of stick to they're own part of the tank.

Not much of a change in the tank but i'd thought i'd do a big load of pictures.

I had a go at aquascaping, but i don't think it looks brilliant. I need some light and bubbles appearing from somewhere.
Hopefully the moss will take over the tank aswell, i think it would look good if it covered all the sand.

And if possible can anyone sex these fish by the look of them?
