you have some true monsters, they are stunning you have done a good job with them they all look fat and happy :D
have you grown them all on? or bought big?

Both the Oscars are a year old. I bought them when they were a little smaller than 2". The Jag I bought when he was about 4" for $40. The Clown Knife I bought big 4-5 months ago at 15" for $55
I bought the big pleco large at 16" for about $10.

Thanks for the kind words. It has taken a lot of work to get this far. Within this year I will invest in a 300g tank. I'm afraid that the Clown Knife will out grow the 150g within the next year or two. Plus I really want a Arowana!

Tidy, but I've seen that backing somewhere before, where? its hand drawn :?

Thanks everyone!

The background I made about 9 months ago. I used cardboard, several pieces of large drawing paper taped together, and oil pastels. It took me about 6 hours, I wanted to take my time with it. I enjoy it being unique and colorful, even though I really like the look of a solid black painted background.
You probally saw it on
Or I am a moderator there helping people with their oscars.

I love this site! Everyone is very friendly here! :D
