I have a case of 'tank bosses', not 'tank boss'. The group of penguin tetras rule the tank. The rest are just middle class I think. Lower class? I don't know what fish would be considered 'low class'.

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.

Well, until today my 6 inch female Texas cichlid has ruled my mixed cichlid community. However, I just picked up a 6 inch male green terror cichlid from the LFS. He's quite the beautiful specimen. They told me that they had to move him because he was beating up all the oscars. We'll see how things play out in my tank.

The big puffer fish in my tank was boss, until I made the mistake of putting a small cichlid in with them. Despite his really small size, that dang cichlid took all the best hiding spots and scared all my puffers to the top of the tank.

So I had to euthenize the poor little cichlid and give the power back to the puffers.

Why didn't you give the cichlid away, or to a LFS?

Because I don't hug trees.

j/k... I didn't actually euthenize him. I put him in a nearby retention pond, but seeing as how I already got yelled at for doing that on this site, I thought I'd just say "euthenize".

I don't hug any trees, not that there's anything wrong with that...

My LFS told me if it came to a a point that I didn't want any of my fish (I bought them all from them) they would take them back, and I would get a small credit.

I'm not sure what my fish store's policy is with returned fish. I'd be surpirsed if they'd take them back considering possible parasites or who knows what it might have picked up in a new tank.

Oh well... he's in a retention pond now so he's happy, I'm happy and my puffers are happy. As long as it doesn't somehow destroy Florida's ecosystem, I'm in the clear.
