hi everyone nice to meet fellow fish keepers
I've been keeping fish now for around 15 years and find it every relaxing but really only got back in to after setting up my son fisrt tropical tank around 3 three years ago (he's 12 now) he's got his tank set up for rainbow fish .
anyway after i set up his tank and doing water tests for 6 weeks and finially getting to the point where he could start adding fish i'd decided that i was going to sell my ten year old thick bar tiger fish(datanoide) and and 15 year old oscar which i loved but i decided to to keep my 9 year ornate bichir which was pushing close to 18 inches
here's a list of what in my tank now.
A black lancer catfish round 6 inches (well i do have a breeding pair but when they aint breeding fight like cat and dog so the other one is in my son tank)
L 114 Leopard catus pleco around 5 inch (still a baby)
L190 royal pleco just starting to get a bigg boy 6inches
saddled bichir about 6inch
pike cichlid 5 inch
2 drawf snakeheads (guacha)
and finally newest additon to my tank a texas cichlid
oh how could i forget there is one other fish that i kept but it stayed at home with dad my big old koi angel fish which i'm surpised is still alive after 13 year the only reason i had him back my dad sold his last week.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
