Fish Keeping
« on: July 14, 2009, 04:48:47 pm »
I know we have looked at cats and dogs but what about fish keeping. I am a mad tropical fish keeper and that is one of my main passions. I mainly keep Australian native species such as rainbows and hardyheads. What do you keep?

I used to have a small 5 gallon tank, but it got to be too much to keep up with, especially since I was going out of town a whole lot and the dissolving feeders never seemed to work right.

Xgsft, that is pretty awesome that one of your clown loaches has been laying eggs as they are pretty hard to breed in captivity with the vast majority being wild caught. I have a beta too and find they are great fun and you can train them. Zebra loaches are very playful too and bala sharks very attractive. I really like cardinal tetras too and you can now get the green neon and gold tetras.
Joeyn, yes many of those dissolving feeders are sadly very unreliable.

I had a saltwater tank running up until a year ago. I had a maroon clownfish, yellow tailed damsel, some shrimp, crabs, snails, and at one point a blue hippo tang (Dory) for over two years. I find saltwater tanks cleaner than freshwater tanks and the vibe they give off is also better for me. The only downside is that they are way more expensive, and thats why i haven't had any fish for about a year.

I have only only the simple starter fish tank with my best buddy Horace the black moor.

But after working in a fish shop for work experiance, I really wanted someone bigger and more exotic. And a jellyfish. But wither way it would be amazing, I so want a porcupine fish.

Jellyfish need special tanks, they're round all the way around and WAY more expensive. Jellyfish are also nice but a bit difficult to maintain.
