List your Species!!!

So, I'm curious. What species are you keeping now? What have you kept in the past? Breed any of 'em?

Tetras: Red Eye, Neon, Black Neon, Cardinal, Glowlight, Diamond, Pristella, Black (High finned), Flame

Catfish: Corydoras sterbae*, C. panda, C. metae, C. trilineatus, C. aeneus (albino)*, C. pygmaeus, Ancistrus sp. (Regular* and Albino), Rubber Nosed pleco, Otocinculus vittatus, Clown Pleco, Banjo Catfish

Cyprinids: Botia kubotai, B. almorhae, B. striata, Pangio myersi, P. kuhli, Nemacheilus sp. (masyae or pallidus), Cherry Barb, Harlequin Rasbora, Glo-fish, Siamese Algae Eater, Weather Loach (regular and xanthic)

Livebearers: Guppy*, Platy*, Swordtail

Anabantids: Leopard Ctenopoma, Betta splendens (male only), Pearl Gourami, Blue Gourami

Other Fish: Threadfin Rainbow, Praecox Rainbow

Other Aquatic Critters: Mystery Snail, Malaysian Trumpet Snail, Pond Snail, Eastern Painted Turtle, African Dwarf Frog, Ghost Shrimp, Amano Shrimp.

The critters I no longer have are in Italics. The ones with an asterisk * I have bred and raised fry.

Not bad for a year of fishkeeping after a quarter century away.

So Jump in. What do you have? What have you had? What have you bred?[/i]

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom

Do I have to list mine? The list could run over 150 species I must admit.

Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to  2
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.

There is absolutely no way I could do that, My fingers would be bloody nubs, my beard down to the floor, and I would be a moldy corpse sitting in this chair and I still probably wouldn't be finished with my list.
