My Fish Keeping
When and how did you become involved in fish keeping?
I was always into the whole fish deal. I love fish and aquatic life. However, my mom would never buy me a fish. A few years ago my aunt [not really my aunt. she's been my mom's best friend since she was 14] gave me her daughter's old tank because she didn't want it. So that's how I started! I knew absolutely nothing and the five fish that came with the tank ended up dying.
What kind of fish do you currently keep?
These arent all in the same tank lol
4 Dojo Loaches
12 Guppy Fry
1 White Koi
2 Neon Tetra [i think]
2 Serpae Tetra
1 Shubunkin Goldfish
1 Tiger Barb [i hope it didnt die D:]
1 Blue Crowntail Betta
What kind of setup?
Two freshwater aquariums. 5 Gal 20 Gal and a 1 Gal fry tank.
What was your most challenging fish keeping experience?
Taking care of fish at my moms. I live with my dad and my fish keep dying. I don't think my mom feeds them. I've been trying forever to try and get them to my dads. I think I'm finally going to be able to get my aquarium here!
What advice would you like to share with the FishForum community?
Don't let your mom take care of your fish! Also, if you are new to fish keeping be sure to cycle your tank. It'll save you a lot of heartache and money. You wont lose your fish that way. Also, be sure to research the fish you're getting so you don't get a fish that eats other fish and put it in with a community tank!
What would be your dream tank?
A huge aquarium taking up an entire wall in my bedroom. Probably freshwater. I'd fill it with live plants, sand, rocks, and other happen yum yums. I'd also get lots of loaches of every variety! Especially Dojo loaches because i love the little buggers.
What do your friends/family think of your hobby?
My parents support it. My actually just bought me a 30 gallon tank the other day. My girlfriend is into the whole fish thing but not cleaning the tanks and stuff. So she buys the fish i take care of them lol

Nice showcase, Ramen. It appears one of my favorite films is also yours. IMHO, Tom Cruise was robbed by the Academy for not even being nominated for his performance in the film "The Last Samurai".
And to think I really thought your first name was Ramen! LOL
@ Auntie: well it practically is. even my family calls me Ramen lol ive had teachers in high school call me Ramen. Friends. sometimes i dont even answer to my real name because im not used to it lol and yes Tom Cruise did AMAZING in The Last Samurai. I watch his other movies and im like "he had short hair?!" but shoot! As if they'd rob him like that right?! that makes me sad D:
@ Lupin: i know right? XD i also forgot to mention my X number of Ramshorn Snails. ive counted over 26 egg clusters split between two tanks. Im going to have a lot lol and yeah i love me my Dojos! i wouldnt mind getting some clowns but i dont think i have big enough tanks, or some Kuhlis. they have such pretty designs. they dont sell them in my city though, and clowns are like 17$
i love my Pong Atari shirt in that picture! lol too bad im losing 2 - 7 though D:
I tried listening to your song, I like the music, I'm just not into the screaming, I have kids for that. I wonder if I recorded them if I could make a buck or two?
You know, looking at all your piercings makes me question my own courage.
See ya around bud,
Hey - it's nice to put a face to your posts, I always enjoy reading yours. You have a way of saying things that makes me smile.
I recently got my first loaches. I messed up and got one each of a dwarf (sid...something) and a butterfly loach. Then I read they both need company. Oh well, will get them friends, I still have space. Really enjoying the butterfly, I love the way he moves.
I'm getting better at holding the unplanned purchases, but......
Nice to meet you!
nice to meet you all!
@ Sue: AWW! i try to give everyones the warm fuzzies and smilies! smilies make the world go 'round; RAWR!@#@#%R$#ETYTGRFWSGHAD Also OMG LOACHES ARE AMAZING! i love them! <3 they are all "hi im cute!" and im like "omg nowai? you are so cute! here have a bottom feeder pellet you love so much!" then they are like "ZOMG! OM NOM NOM NOM" and i just watch! :O
@ Krine: lawl! yeah i have 10 piercings and two tattoos, i think i forgot to put pics of my tattoos though *FROWN!* but oh wellz! <3
as for the screaming yeah i guess its an acquired taste? lol i listen to other stuff with more of a metal vocal like Slipknot and Lamb of God too ^^
i love heavy myoosiq!
See? That's so it, right there!! I saw your message, I'm laughing out loud at work and my employee is all "are you on the internet again?" Way for me to set an example, right!
I put an algae pellet in for my butterflies last night, but my cories and the big river piggies (dwarf neon rainbows) were all over it. I was yelling at them that it was Scooter's, but they were in this wild feeding frenzy and paid me no mind at all. I haven't used algae pellets before, I really didn't expect that reaction. Every fish in the tank, except the loaches, was crowded around it.
I did get a second Butterfly. Buzz. When he went in the tank, he circled it over and over. He did laps for hours. He settles now, but only on the glass. On the rare occasion he lands somewhere else, it's never more than a touch and go. If he needs more than algae, I don't know I'll ever get it to him between his refusal to sit still and the river piggies apetite.
Scooter is better then twice Buzz's size. They have names for now, but I suspect as Buzz grows up, I won't be able to tell the difference. Scooter voted I name him 'mini me'
So, what are you studying?
business, more specifically accounting ^^
its real easy and fun!
i bought me some Kuhli's the other day when i handed in my resume D:
i cant help myself when im in a petshop i gotta buy loaches! its an addiction :(
Accounting is real easy? OMG You are carzy. I should have known.
I'm in Acctg 112 this symester and still can't get the hang of when to debit and when to credit. I have to take on line courses, because I travel for work periodically. Last semester I e-mailed the prof asking how to get this straight. She answered 'Yep, that's the hardest part". Real helpful.
Aside form that, I was pretty proud of myself when I was able to all the bond stuff last week. I'm studying business too, part time, but am interested in suppy chain management.
Do your loaches ever run up and down the glass? Mine have been at it all day. I have a terribly cloudy tank, but all the other fish are fine and I tested the water and everything looks OK that way. They're funny to watch, they keep doing laps around the thermometer, but it's odd for them, so I' a bit worried. I have water warming to do a big change.
Do you have any butterfly loaches? They're quickly becoming my favorite.
