    As someone who bred them, and with all the tiny tank cleaning that requires, one thing you learn the hard way is to put a spare net over the sink drains so that when the damn fish makes a break for it you have a chance!

    Gorgeous! I love them all! I am particularly fond of shellies and badis.

    The shellies were a blast. If I decide to set up tanks again I think I'll pretty much have to do them again.

    The Badis were cool. I had them in a tank with dwarf corys (of which I have only horribly blurry pictures that you can barely tell there's a fish in it).

    At various points I've had Angel fish (I had one bigger than my spread hand when we bought the house, but he didin't survive the move *sigh*), puffers, and all sorts of random fish here and there as they caught my eye.

    Here's my figure-8 puffer, Otis. I can never get a clear shot of him because he is ALWAYS frantically moving. He's 7 or 8 years old now, in a brackish setup.

    I would love to get a salt water tank at some point.

    Hector Well-Known Member has been awhile. Loaches are dead, silver dollar rehomed, danios all ko'ed, and cichlid fry all disappeared. Male jewel that was paired with the female started aggressing towards her and nearly killed her. All she wanted to do was lay eggs lol. The only jewel that has a tank mate is the one with the female midas. I need to get a funny video of those two.

    Oh and Petco is having their $1/gal sale going till 7/16. It includes the 10G, 20G High and Long, 29G, 40G breeder and 55G tanks. We picked a 55 gal up today (only 55 gals left at the store we went to).
