Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

I picked up a small jack dempsey(2in long), a small pike cichlid(2.5in long), and a tiger oscar(2in long)...got them with Dick the bullhead until they get bigger...everyone gets along perfectly and they all hangout with Dick all the time

Bullheads represent the cookie monsters of the rivers around here...hungry, hungry, hungry

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

ok gang i went to petzone that is moving to a much larger building down the road and they know me in there quite well...they gave me a 5inch bass and 20 giant danios for nothing, so now i have them and am getting a 120 gallon tank for him and dick so he can grow big and healthy. THe danios are the feeder fish because they are not getting a shipment till next week when they move...

Him and Dick swimming


The Danios swimming towards the surface to avoid Dick at the bottom


Dick is hiding towards the surface being sneaky and using camoflage

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

bullyhead, thats an AMAZING bass. he will be a sure showpiece and something to be proud of once he matures more. hell, him and dick will both be amazing! lol.

susan, i guess that counts... lol. actually, that would be awesome if i ever got my hands on some cory eggs. where did you get them?

Calling aquariums and fish boring is like calling a hott model ugly.

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

thanks shotgun, and congrats on the new kids haha susan...ya i cant wait till they are moved to the 150 gallon tank and if anyone wants to know how to acclamate nocturnal fish to daylight fish, i stumbled acrossed it with Dick haha...I left the aquarium light on overnight for a few nights with just him in it so it was laways bright and finally he got hungry...after about a week of this he now is on the same schedule as everyone else in the room, awake at day and when its lights out, its lights out for everyone...idk if it was the healthiest thing to do but it deffinately worked and now he is more sociable with people...by sociable i mean that bullheads are very curious fish and now when someone walks in he swims over and watches you and everything...its deff more interesting now

*edit*
oh ya i know i said 120 in my post, but i got a great deal on a 150, so im super excited

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

dont know if this counts, but i set up a fairy shrimp tank about a week ago and just saw a single tiny fry in it a few minutes ago. i have no idea what it is or where it came from, my best guess is it came in as an egg from my community tank when i seeded the fairy shrimp tank with a few tiny pieces of plants to promote insuforia. ive decided that if it makes it in the fairy shrimp tank, im gonna name it Mystery.

You show me a man who can reliably grow algae and I will show you a man who can reliably grow fish.
