My Tank

I have had a 100 gallon tank since early '95. Had many different types of fish. My current setup is very entertaining.
I always start out with a pleco while the tank gets settled. Then I added a Red Devil and a month later a Midas. Red Devil turns out to be a female, Midas a Male. I get fry all summer long.
One day my youngest daughter who likes to fish with a net comes home with a largemouth bass and a catfish. I add them too. This was last summer. The interaction has been interesting. The Midas is the uncontested ruler of the tank but as the bass grows he sure is a tough guy. He will give the Red Devil a run for her money. She does not back down but soon will be overtaken in the pecking order.
I sure do like the bass but might have to let him go. He is truely a wild animal and survival of the fittest...well his instincts are still pure.
Just thought I would share.

Jeff

Hello Jeff & Welcome to our forum.

Glad you joined to share your tank stories and I support the idea of letting him go, I think that would be a wise decision for the tank.

i think a little side note of what that fish was going to do would have been a help,
i wouldn't have watched it. :(
nice bass though.

I apologize if I offended anyone. I have spent the last 23 years in the Marines and I am not the most politically correct person (far from it), but in the interest of maintaiing my presence here I will play nice.
