I currently have some Yoyo loaches and although I love them they got much larger than they were slated to have grown. My biggest one is over 6 inches long and very active. He or she is intimidating to my other fish and I probably would not purchase them again. I also lost my Gypsy King Tiger Pleco yesterday and would not replace it as it also was too big for my tanks. (but I did love him) I replaced him with a Clown Pleco, I had lost my Clown Pleco during a water disaster earlier this year when our town's water supply became contaminated and I was not aware of it until I changed the water in my tank and it killed my fish. We (the whole town) were without water for a week.
What has been or is now your favorite fish of all times since you began keeping fish?
oh that's a tough question...there are 3 fish that hold a special place in my heart.
One, is Oscar, he was a common goldfish
that my hubby moved from the front fountain to our community tank when i was doing mosaic on the fountain. he was the first fish to capture my heart and my fishie imagination. sadly he died when he went back to the fountain.
Two, is Frannie, she was a beautiful resuce commet from a spoiled tank on a job my hubby went to. he brought her home. her BIG fan tail and sweet face captured my heart. when she died, i cried for days.
Three, is Angel, my beautiful white betta
who live only a short week or so. this was my dream betta and he touched me deeply from the moment i saw him. his rapid passing, during a difficult time in my life, symbolized that even small pleasures are unavailable to me in this dark time.
my current favorite fishie is my baby betta Patriot.
and my current heart break is my ailing betta Royal Blue. he is really struggling and it breaks my heart every day to see him suffer:confused:
sorry, i couldn't pick just one....:(
TPBM: if you won an all expenses paid vacation to anywhere for 2 weeks, where would you go and why?
