Wow, that's a big fish.

So my botias are coming Thursday and my leporinus are here now. I'm kind of worried they will be problem fish. Some people say get 2 and it cuts down on finding nipping. Any ideas? Should I skip these guys or what?

edit: I went to look at them and saw them, literally, ripping up 3 black ghost knifefish's fins. Definitely a no go

I grabbed 2 more emerald green corys to complete my shoal. They are happy

Also, I thought my lobster got killed since he molted last night. Nope, I found his naked *** hiding in a hollow log.

Found another reef setup. I'm picking it up tomorrow. I'm paying $800 for a 180 and a salt 75, both are complete.

I can't wait. So much aquaria! My fish will have tons of room to swim around and explore pics to come of course.


There was a ****ing amazing bamboo shark at the lfs today. I'm sad I couldn't ever own one though

Awful picture, but it's beautiful none the less. If I had space, I would definitely make a pond setup bug enough for this guy and a ray (if that's possible). Maybe I'll man cave out my next house.

i prefer fish to snakes. i used to have a few snakes but havent kept any in a while. i prefer turtles to all that stuff though.


well, and dogs. it would not be fair to the dog if i had one now since i am not home enough. my grandparents have owned a kennel for 50 years so i get to dick around with all kinds of dogs whenever i want. they board a few wolves there too occasionally (honestly do not know why people own those, they are awful pets, especially if you are stupid enough to keep one in your home).

my place used to be like a zoo, i had all kinds of herps and fish. now i just have fish and 2 turtles.

my 5th year in college i had my south african giant bullfrogs down at school. i fed them mostly frozen mice and would keep them in my mini fridge freezer. the one night the girl i was talking to at the time was over and she went in there to get a bottle of vodka. that was soon followed by a **** load of screaming and loud noises. i ran up to my room to find a bunch of frozen mice all over the place and her about to puke. i guess she saw the brown bag and got curious lol.

Pom and westie will live forever.

So I'm getting ready to go get these tanks and it occurred to me. How the **** am I going to get a 180g tank into a uhaul with just 2.5 people (previous owner, me, and my wife)?! It weighs like 300ish lbs, which hopefully won't be too bad for that many people.

300 lbs should be no problem for 3 people.

its just sort of unwieldy, outside that it should not be that bad

Well, hopefully he doesn't have it in his rape dungeon or anything like that. Maneuvering it up stairs would suck.

I've seen a lot of people on MFK use those suction cup handles to move huge tanks.
