I have two fifty gallon aquariums. The first aquarium houses three Severums [Heros Severus]: two greens and one yellow, an Albino Chocolate Pleco and a general nameless Pleco. I have tried to keep plants in this tank but between the severums and the plecos, they become tasty snacks. The severums also have the hobby of interior decorating which is not good for any plants, live or artificial.
The second aquarium houses two Pearl Gouramis [Trichogaster leerii] and one very badly behaved Red Tailed Shark [Epalzeorhynchus bicolor]. I do have plants in this tank and they seem to be doing pretty good. The Red Tailed Black Shark fish loves to gently graze over the leaves. He also loves chasing any other fish that he sees.
I also have three cats: Cleo, Pudge and Sammy. They are as badly behaved as the Red Tailed Shark is but I love them anyway. I have a Golden Retriever named Buddy who is the most well behaved dog in the world. I lucked out with him.
I used to have a pond with huge ancient goldfish I won in sixth grade at a carnival. Those fish lived for a good eight to ten years in an outdoor pond until I adopted a dog (who is no longer with us on this planet) that loved water and fishing. I came home one day to all of the large goldfish spread out in the middle of the backyard. He did not even have the decency to actually eat the fish.
