    I think Shakespeare has a line somewhere about "not trusting people who dislike dogs" and I'm pretty sure Mark Twain (who was a huge cat fanatic) has a similar statement about cats. As a past dog owner and current cat fanatic myself (I have four) I wholly agree.

    People say "don't your cats bother your fish?"

    Nope. They just like to sit on the aquarium lights and keep their tummies warm!

    You rock. I love your contributions to the forum and more often than not agree wholeheartedly with your views. I also like your quotation by I. Kant. I think Ghandi expressed a similar view about a culture being jusged on how well or poorly it treats the dogs in the streets.

    BTW, having unsuccessfully tried to read "The critique of pure Reason", I have to say I like the quote you selected better than anything else by Imanuel Kant!

    Ropefish could easily do a 55 gallon, for 2-3. Well, I guess most people say it's improper, but they aren't active, and they don't need to keep their bodies straight like knives. 55 gallons is good for a single bichir.. but again the width of the tank is the same as the length of the fish. All personal opinion with tank sizes once you start getting up there. I've heard everything from my tank is horribly overstocked to horribly understocked (if that's even possible). 75 gallons is a great tank size to start with these guys, that's basically what mine are living in, the 90 gallon is just 4" taller, doesn't really do much for these guys.

    No clue, actually. Just gonna go with the flow. I can expect 1" a month growth from bichir, so it's really not that bad.

    Yes, I really gotta pick up the pace on this baby. Really need those congos growing, as well as the buffalo heads.

    I'm not posting photos till it's done, sadly. Just a personal choice. Hopefully by the end of the week I'll have some congo tetra in there, who knows.

    A gulper catfish could probably manage- look em up. Sooo cool, but they are no tank mate fish, gah. I think they can eat fish three times their size- they grab the fish by the mouth, and let the fish do the rest of the work, swimming forward, right into the gulper's mouth.
    Gotta figure out my rock formation today. :)
