Damn! If you ever decide to sell any tanks let me know! I need a 55 for my 3 Reds...
What size are your piranha? My reds are 3-4" and the baby is about 1.5-2"
How big is your oscar? That's my next fish, if my bf will let me get another tank!!!
captain Highliner....garlic roasted here....
We actually had Reds also but we gave them away to a guy
we know who is trying to breed them. They were pretty big.
I'll upload some pictures in a minute. The Piranhas are all
babies still. The one in the 25 gal is maybe 3-3.5", the one in
the 33 gal is probably 4-4.5" and the one in the 55 gal is 5"
but his body shape is longer, so he's still pretty small. The
Oscar is like 8-9" IMO... everyone says he's bigger, but I've
never measured him.
Here is a picture of my Oscar and one of the Reds we gave away!
i've got a 30 gal with
4 blind cave fish
a albino plecko
4 cherry barbs,
and a 10 gal tank with a siamese fighting fish....
the cave fish are my faves they got no eyes and they grow like crazy.... i've had two of them for over 2 years now and they're almost 3" in lenght...
I hope to get back into it someday when i have some more cash, but I use to have a few tanks..
1 25 gallon with assorted cichilds (1 LARGE green sevrum, 3 mating pairs of black convict cichlids, etc)
1 40 gallon tall with a mating pair of pigeon blood Discus. My all time favorite.
My two buddies work down at Aqua Creations, and have about 600 gallon combined of salt and freshwater tanks. dedicated rooms and whatnot, it's incredible.
Those Reds are really cool, what do you feed them and how often?
Yeah man, im thinking about starting a 90gal saltwater, but it is really expensive to get a saltwater tank up and running.
yeah, for a nice 90 gal one you're over 2 grand...
We fed them about 6 goldfish a week, and 2 large shrimp each every night.
Our fish tend to get overfed
Makes them happy and fat... Mine are like that too! Your oscar was beautiful! I found some at the Cole Harbour Pets Unlimited. They have black and albino tigerskin oscars, 2 for $40, and they're about 3-4" already. I'm dying to bring 2 home to join the zoo, but until I have an addition built or move to a bigger house, I'm at my max, I think. :'(
He's my oscar too
I've had every type of Tank goin except for Cichlids! never was much into those! I'll just look at my buddies & there tanks for that! I plan on setting up a beauty of a plant/community tank once I move! Fish are teh win!
NO... you gave up all rights, remember?
33 gallon with upsidedown catfish,tiger oscar,jack dempsy,dwarf rams..
bettas in bowls..
I'm NOT paying child support!
55 gal with african cichlids
50 gal... all cichlids.. all savages
Everyone gets cichlids
but they are really cool fish.
i used to have a reef ... and then i moved here... and fish are crazy expensive...i worked at petsunlimited in dartmouth for 4 years a long time ago..ive had crazy fish . now i got nothin .. im gonna start a new one soon tho.. self sustaining i think. with south american chiclids .. the peace full ones...like german blue rams and kribensis. ive always loved big schools of cardinals ... and rhino plecos... as well as royal farlowellas and every type of cory dora going. those placid fish with a well live planted tank = awesome
cory's rock... be sure to wink back at them, if not it's bad luck
have a pond with like 30 goldfish in it. does that count?
no .. carp suck
I've got 3 tetras, 2 cherry barbs, 2 clown loaches, 2 dwarf gourami, a black molly and a red-finned shark. I need to get a few more though, because my tank still looks bare.
I prolly know you then! I know Jimmy & Zeb for ever now!
What size tank?
I've got a 33gal loach tank. 5 clowns, 2 or 3 striata, a black kuhli, a histronica, 3 dario, two fat yo-yos, a clown plec, a whiptail cat, a banjo cat, a couple stupid black skirted tetras, and a couple of angel fish.
Anyone have some extra plants they want to get rid of? My plants died off in the last couple years.
My fully planted 27gal Hex Tank now currently houses the following:
9 pearl danios
5 scissortail rasboras
6 assorted corydoras
2 clown loaches
2 zebra loaches
3 shy female bettas
2 really nosey paradise fish
1 featherfin catfish
1 leopard pleco
1 spotted suckerfish (mr. wiggles)
2 dwarf aquatic frogs
1 enormous apple snail
Many live plants
I love relaxing and staring at the tank...Best piece of furniture in the house.
I have a 29 gallon with a 10" Oscar in it,he looks almost identical to Boots oscar,I also have a 10-12" pleco in that tank(yes I know the tank is too small,bigger is coming in the spring). I also have a 10 gallon with a goldfish and a pleco in it,the goldfish was a feeder that my kids and wife decided to save. My wife has a 1 gallon with an African aquatic frog in it.He's about 3-4 years old and is about the size of a toonie.
On a side note,if anybody wants to see a pretty cool oscar.There is a shop in Bedford place mall and they have a big fucker in there that will actually let you pat him.He lays right over on his side and sits there and lets you do it.He's pretty cool,mine goes apeshit if you try that.
