Hello to everyone. I am kinda new to the tropical fish scene and when i have a question, or something im curious about my searches bring me to this forum, so I thought it would make sense to join. The owners at the local fish store say we keep an odd, yet interesting tank. 5 different kinds of "freshwater sharks"(they look more like cats and suckers to me), gouramis, 2 kinds of cichlids, and a blue zebra lobster named Bob. Just thought of another question... is it odd to name fish? We do??
Hi Weezel Welcome to TFK! Ya lots of us name our fish. I didn't name all of them in the big tank but I did name my Betta Fishbert. lol.

I have to many to name but I did name one of my Lake Malawi cichlids Big Mamma as she was always holding it seems, she was about 7" as well
10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)
75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.
220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
Thats good to hear. Almost all the fish in the tank here have names. Jax, Fargus, Lil Miss, Moose, Art, Z, Sparky, Mr Miagi, Bulvoi, and Bob. Still have 4 to name, but the are kinda new so still learning thier personalities. Most folks laugh a bit when they hear our fish have names. I think its fun

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]
