there is one thing that i see my cory do a lot... he will swim to the top of the water(which i thought was weird cuz he is a bottom dweller) and go back and forth along the surface on his side with one of his pectrol fins out of the water like a dolphin! then go to the bottom and back to the top and do it again. it is entertaining to watch!

oscars are pretty sweet. Mine is already starting to get picky though. He was eating pellets but since i gave him blood worms he doesn't want to eat them. He looks fat as heck when he eats a whole cube him self and he's only 2 inches long!

They're usually 50 cents to $1 at the LFS.

one of my severums I just got to add to my 110 gal. hes about 1 to 1.5" is all , and hes only got one eye. for some reason he warmed up to me SUPER fast (hes currently growing out in my female betta 10 gal with 7 female bettas). Ive only had him for a couple weeks and hes already eating out of my fingers :O

that is really neat! i live in the country and i have a pond in my back yard that has sunfish in it. there are about 3-4 of the sunfish that will come to the edge and eat a worm out of my hand. there is only 1-2 that will let me pet them as they eat but it is still so cool. :D
