im glad to here that you like north American natives to there is a place were I have been were there were all kinds of sunfish such as banded, bluegill, red breasted, mud, green, and I think if there is such a type im not sure it looked just like a red breasted sunfish but it had orange instead of red and I was able to go in the water with a net and put bread in the net and I was able to net them with ease they were not afraid and there were other kinds of sunfish that I have never seen but they were not big do to the water being very acidic im not sure but I was told that because of the water being so acidic that it stunted there growth the water was crystal clear there were also a yellow perch that I seen but all of them stayed away from me when I was in the water lol except the sunfish one other place I went to there were a lot of bluegill and some of them were very big and would bite me if I stood still and there were some very large trout I know it all sounds to good to be true but because of the places I went were not populated by people I think that was the reason the fish were like that and the reason there were so many all of the places I went to were I seen the fish were kind of far in woods and I had to be carful because there were a lot of bear from what my father in law told me he is kind of like Rambo at least I think so he was in the military and seen action and was also a police officer and loves nature thank you for the reply I hope I did not say to much just love native fish talking about native fish gets my memory going of some good times.

Sounds like an interesting place! The sunfish you can't remember the name of sounds like a Pumpkinseed (the sunny I grew up on, not realizing there were other kinds! Haha). Very orange breasted fish, and it also has a red spot on the ear tab (that black spit at the top of the gill opening).

Hey girly, I'm a little bit behind, but I'm so glad to hear things are going so well in there, and the numbers are looking good! I think it's time for another photo bomb! How are the plants doing now? Any sign of the mysteriously vanished package? Inquiring minds want to know! :D:D:D

Three cheers for cycled tanks and 90's music! *dances*

Three more for native fish, and catching them yourself!

A belated welcome to the forum, Lou! You should start a thread on the native fish topic out on the freshwater board - could be fun to see who else has had similar experiences, and input to add to this fascinating convo!

Heya Chesh! Was wondering where you vanished off to :P I've got some photos that I might put in my Webs and Wigglers, but I'll be sure to get some pictures for here! I have to go to work in a little over an hour, but I think I will try and get some when I come home.

Plants are doing AWESOME. Wisteria, some swords, ludwigia, and my lilies are going absolutely nuts right now. I'll be trimming and spreading out the wisteria soon (I'm so glad its doing well, its one of my favorites but always seems to melt in my other tanks).

I've got a feeling that the last of my shrimp never were sent. But, ah well. I ordered 35 from another dealer at a better rate, and I think I'm going to set some of them up in another tank as a breeding project.

I'm here!
I get lost sometimes. . . but I always find my way back, eventually!
>.<
I'll check out the photo thread, can't wait to see some new shots of those babies and their new home. . .

Bummer about the shrimp! Thrilled that everything else is going (and growing!) well, though!

Some pictures, as promised! The rest I took will go in my photo thread.

1) Both of my baby bn plecos in one place. I adore the one with the bigger/more noticeable spots, but they're both just so cute XD

2) When I first got my floating plants, they covered maybe 1/3 of the surface of the tank. After about one week, it looked like this. A thick covering on the top that was difficult to break through XD I even trimmed it out several times, and it still looks like that. I have no idea what to do with all my extra floaters!

3) Cories are supposed to love eating shrimp. Yet this daredevil doesn't care. He's too interested in the stuff that gets stuck in the filter to care about his mortal enemy on the other side of the tube XD

4) I fed everyone last night, and threw in a few bloodworms for a treat. This Amano decided to feast on one. It was hilarious watching it swoop down, pick one up, then swim away as fast as it could possibly manage. I wish I had gotten a picture earlier when it still had 90% of the worm hanging out of its mouth XD

I got in my 35 new cherries today! Some of them are so SMALL. I got a bunch of juvies in there. Only one DOA, but the dealer includes two extra juvies to cover any DOAs, so I'm still good. They actually weren't supposed to get in until tomorrow at the earliest, so when I got back from work, I was amazed to see the package sitting in the entry way. Not to mention, it wasn't stolen XD

Wow! Talk about a special delivery! Good thing the temps and everything were okay for them to be left like that! I'm assuming they must be in the tank by now - how's everything going?

Yup! They're in the tank! :D I'm assuming most of the little ones got eaten, as I haven't seen them anywhere since the first two days XD But I fully expected that. I at least have a few egg-heavy females, and most of the larger ones appear to have survived!

I'd post more about the tank, but I'm actually in a bit of a rush this morning. I'm driving back to my parents today for my sister's birthday, and I've got so much to do this morning. Hope to have more to say at the end of the weekend!
