I figured I'd share my dads beautiful salt water fish! :-P Some of these pictures are old and some are new. They aren't that clear because they LOVE to move all around. :roll: I hate taking pictures of them.lol Some of them have names. The blue angel (blue with white stripes) is named Bob and the rasp (orange, green and yellow) is named Harley. :-P Oh and the third picture of the little yellow guy, we named him Motor Boat.lol Some of them my dad still has and some passed away.

That's quite the assortment of fish! Just curious, what size tank is this and is the mandarin still alive?

Yeah, most of them he doesn't have anymore. Unfortunately the mandarin died a while ago, but he had him for a couple months (I guess they're really hard to keep). It's a 68G I think? I took the first 10 pictures a year ago so he's had all different assortments.lol

There are some pretty interesting looking fish there!

***sigh*** so beautiful.

it really makes me want to rethink my plans for my 45 gallon hex. i'm rehoming everyone in there to a 75 gallon when we move in a few months. i know i won't be able to have ets for too long.

not sure i'm brave enough to attempt the salt water just yet tho.

cowfish!!!! i love those lil guys my dad had one when i was a tyke i would get a saltwater setup just to have one lol and i'd prolly add some seahorsies =)

Yeah my dad didn't have any trouble with his big tank probably because he was more experienced. But the smaller one that he bought originally for salt water fish he had a lot of trouble with and had to take down. I told him he should get the small tank back up and running and put just seahorses in it. :)

Seahorses are just as tough (if not tougher) to keep alive in captivity than mandarins are!
