What a Deal -- I Think

Just bought 6 tinfoil barbs for $5 -- all 7" long or longer. What was I thinking?

Right now they are in my 180g, What do I do With These Fish?, tank. I'll figure out exactly where(and what) to put them permanently later. I never was a big barb guy. Still not. But I've got'em now. They are pretty good looking, for a silver fish with red tails.

You might have to provide them lots of greens. Barbs would love you for that. Any plants you place there will just get eaten.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I always used large tinfoils for target fish. They can take quite a beating as long as they have enough room to run.

They eat like silver cows and poop like crazy. good luck with yours.

If I would quit buying fish I could afford a good camera. The one I have now makes everything look like it has hair!!!!! lol But I think I've got to have at least two of everything. Do you think Noah had feelings similar to mine?

Quite possibly :D (and I'd love to see a fish with hair!!)

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!
