Oh MAN!!! O.O

So sorry to hear about BOTH of your 'white boys.' (and the power out, cuz' those just suck, regardless of fish)

What a bummer! Wilders hold the same fascination for me, too. I just can't help but think of this animal. . . just a short time ago. . . THERE!!! Really blows my mind to think how far some have come to live with us. Amazing. . .

I hope you find a new one of the right size to get along with the others. . . I think!??? Kind of nervous, they seem like targets! You and your aggressives! *shakes head* I don't know what I'd do if one of my (tiny) fish decided to jump and hit the tank lid - much less if it were PUSHED OUT OF THE WATER BY A TANK-MATE!!! Yeeeesh. Brutal!

Cichlids are amazing and fascinating things. . . but I think I'll stick to the bitty dwarvish ones. Like rams! I do SO love rams! Congrats on those pretty new blues! Nothing wrong with a peaceful community, Agent! Glad to hear you gave peace a chance - and LIKE it!

Who else lives in this tank, I really can't keep your tanks straight to save my life (good thing it isn't a requirement that I do, neh?)

Gotta admit, I'm amused by the dinner-time poop fests. Assuming you're cooking dinner for the humanfish hybrids you have there? Mmmmhmm, I always wonder where those veggies go - I'm quite sure they don't eat them that quickly! Looks like another case closed to me! ^.~

I guess I'm not allowed to demand more pics just yet, right? Too soon? *bees patient*

Honestly I'm a little mad at myself about the wild white boy(I just love how that sounds lol). I had just seen him when I stopped in to chat with the store manager. I seriously considered buying him that day which was the week before the power out but decided to think about it * Bad Marie! I should always listen to my inner voice*. He was murdered by a tank mate while I was in Baltimore


AH yes.. my pretty peaceful tank( Don't worry Chesh, I have trouble remembering exactly what I have sometimes ). That is the home of the electric blue Rams, bronze corys, albino corys, julii corys, Zebra loaches, Thread fin Rainbows, a male "Bettadora", and the last group I keep thinking I'm sure then I second guess myself they are either Angelicus Botias or Yoyo loaches... last week I was sure they were Yoyo's this week I'm leaning towards Angelicus dunno

The Rams certainly are interested in my cooking but I still am not sure how to take it when they poop while watching my food lol

Adorable and gorgeous! I don't have soft, low PH water, so I can't have them, but I sure can admire yours!

Aww . thanks! I do move pretty fast..but not too fast as to screw up anything. I used to drive my x husband crazy when I had to finish something I started at the expense of sleep and sanity lol. Good thing sanity is not in my plans .
