My Tank
 
I have had a 100 gallon tank since early '95. Had many different types of fish. My current setup is very entertaining.
I always start out with a pleco while the tank gets settled. Then I added a Red Devil and a month later a Midas. Red Devil turns out to be a female, Midas a Male. I get fry all summer long.
One day my youngest daughter who likes to fish with a net comes home with a largemouth bass and a catfish. I add them too. This was last summer. The interaction has been interesting. The Midas is the uncontested ruler of the tank but as the bass grows he sure is a tough guy. He will give the Red Devil a run for her money. She does not back down but soon will be overtaken in the pecking order.
I sure do like the bass but might have to let him go. He is truely a wild animal and survival of the fittest...well his instincts are still pure.
Just thought I would share.

Hello Jeff & Welcome to our forum.

Glad you joined to share your tank stories :-) and I support the idea of letting him go, I think that would be a wise decision for the tank.

would you be able to show some pictures of the fish and the tank,
it sounds awsome.

Hi Jeff,

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you're pretty adventerous with your tankmates.

We'd love to see a picture or two of it.

Nice video, the bass sure seems like a hand full.

i think a little side note of what that fish was going to do would have been a help,
i wouldn't have watched it. :(
nice bass though.

I apologize if I offended anyone. I have spent the last 23 years in the Marines and I am not the most politically correct person (far from it), but in the interest of maintaiing my presence here I will play nice.:twisted:
