I'd be tempted, but I know that I'm too much of a softie to keep the more agressive animals. They really are stunning, though - and fascinating, behaviorally-speaking. . . I'm more than happy to watch and learn from across the screen!

Thanks, Jaysee - always good to hear what's going on over there! Got anymore eye-candy for me (I/E photos!)??? I'd love to see the villain in question!

Rainbow?? It was a congo tetra The bichir will be going in the big fish tank, when I return. For now it's in a quarantine tank.

Yeah, aggressive fish are a much different fish keeping experience.


This coming week I'll be going to the good fish store, on my way back home. I've got 4 quarantine tanks open!

Yeah, they are pretty neat fish. Very personable. They are sexed by the anal fin, but to be honest I've never cared to find out - not important. When I need to know, I'll learn

New fish!

For the new 125, a tiretrack eel, a red tailed tiger loach, 2 more silver dollars and 2 more pictus cats, to make 8 of each.

For the 90, 6 upside down catfish.

Bichir is now in the 125. The SDs, pictus and eel are being quarantined together in a 29, the upside down cats are being quarantined in the 20 long, and the loach in the 20 high.
