Normally I wouldn't care too much what my bichir eats but I really love these curious little guys...and that says alot because I'm rarely fond of non aggressive fish..or anything, pet or human in general lol.

Dang dude. I should ship fish from here to you( Xbf is airplane mechanic for UPS so I get good deals shipping* free*.) I'll have to sift through receipts but I think they were a leeetle expensive ...maybe $10 each. But that because they weren't in my fav LFS this time. That store has amazing fish and what they don't have they can get their hands on for me. Most expensive fish if I can recall were 2 out of my 70 or more fish I own. Ornate bichir of whom they contacted the breeder and asked them many questions was maybe mid to uppers $20's and my black calvus cichlid which was $32 which was shocking because I can get most anything even F1 malawi cichlids for 5 or 6 bucks. I love my store! They at one point jokingly offered for me to buy the store and I swear the thought has crossed my mind!

got fish

hunted down some threadfins today and got six. From what I can tell looks like 1 male and 5 females(one pregnant female). They seem a bit confused by all the swimming space but all looks good. Just want more male threadfins. The tank is super active today and I've added some bright pink plants. Juliis aren't hiding in their cave anymore but have confined themselves to one small section of the tank to swim around in...are they normally more shy then other corydoras?

How soon can pictures be demanded? Is there some sort of social etiquette? Like the fish have to be owned more than five minutes?

Depends how exciting the purchase is. If it's really exciting it's totally socially acceptable to demand pics with fish still in the store bag.. then pics of acclimating it then videos.lol (like I did with my bichir)

OK you wants pics do ya? Here ya go! (couldn't get really good pics of the threadfins because they swim around investigating the tank so much)





this is the male.. he looks amazing in person..especially when he shows off his odd shaped top fin


Bright pink plants!



the green cory thinks I can't see him lol



I love loaches..they're so weird

*OMG Agent is back and updating*

Hey all!
So yea I've been missing in action a bit. So I've sadly forgotten to update anything that is going on and can't even recall what I've posted. so here is the final stock additions and updates to at least this tank (well Maybe another few electric blue rams ..we shall see as I am waiting for more quality ones like the one I have). So here we GO!
I have added four Zebra loaches, Still not sure if my 3 angelicas botia are in fact that or yoyos..(chime in please if you think they are one or the other0) Threadfin rainbow addition is doing great.. have 10... 3 of which are male. Beta still thinks he is a cory, Upped my Julii corys and they are a lot leas shy now. and last but not least I finally added an electric blue ram. A very tiny just short of an inch one. Not sure..think it's a boy.. but don't care either way. Want more but I haven't seen a lot of good ones lately.

Despite what was said.. the theadfins are the most bold in the tank.. seriously wasn't expeting that. The males keep flashing fins at my bettadora and luckily he just looks like" what are you doing?!?!" then swim back to his cory buddies.
Pic fest!
plants exploded in there and I don't even understand why..but hey..they like it


Loach tree!. they love this area

I swear this zebra loach has always freaked me out.. I promise he is alive on the rock..just sleeping. Weird loachy behavior



enough for the moment. Ill get better ones later. maybe one day I snap a male rainbow while his is showing his fins!

Corydora tank upgrade..tankmates?

Doing a water change last night and got "attacked " by one of my little ekectric blue rams haha
He wasn't pleased that I was taking his water away. They always attack my hands and the python during water changes

Tank is doing beautifully

Actually yes.. I was thinking about your issue with pics when I did it.. Wasn't sure if it would work . I copied the video from YouTube and got the link for the pic off photobucket after loading it from my phone .. Try it.. Should work for you too
