Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

Do you know how many males you have if any?.......i wouldnt add anymore fish at this point, till you find out if your gonna have baby convicts in the near future........These are aggressive fish when breeding and raising young, crowding them with more fish is just gonna raise their aggression, especially towards other convicts, males or females.....Plus with 4 adults convicts and a pleco, your pushing the safety zone of your bio-load in your tank........try to sex the fish you have definitely have some nice looking females

well its always good to know if you have males or females with convicts, and the ratio of 3 to 1 is a good start.....more than likely your male is gonna select one of the females and start the process.......Just keep and eye on the mated pair and the other 2 females........Things could get really nasty....try to provide as much cover as you can in your tank and break up the line of sites in the tank........Great fish to watch the parenting process of....

Great deal on the tank setup!..........$100 was a steal......

Very nice set-up. I recently got just about the exact deal. A 55g with all equipment and stand.... My only problem being that it came with 2 Bala sharks that are at least 5 1/2 " long... I've not decided what to do with them, as I really think they have outgrown this tank... Any takers?
