    @Lucy-licious how silly of me to forget that?!! LOL

    here are the fin kids


    Spot is shy and won't come out of his cave (you can barely see him in the pic below). I got him as a playmate for Big Guy when he lost his best buddy a couple of months ago. What was so sad was that Big Guy was the first one sick and the one who died was trying to take care of him - but then she died So I'm waiting for Spot to get a little bigger before putting them in the same take so Big Guy wont eat him!

    Big Guy is very shy too, he's trying to hide in the plant, but you can clearly see him LOL

    Fin Diesel is very much in your face, especially if he thinks you have food. He's already jumped out of the tank. He's still a baby and I've had him since earlier this year.

    No oscars or cat fish. We have koi some of which we have shown, fancy goldies that we breed and show, and breed albino long finned bristle nosed plecostomus.

    That's pretty cool! I've never been to a fish show and never realized until recently how popular koi were.
    Do you know much about porcupine puffers? I think they are brackish or saltwalter. I was thinking about getting some of those until Herman's breeder told me she spent over $20K trying to maintain a saltwater tank.... so I'll stick with the catfish LOL I dont really know how to take care of them, my husband does.

    I dont know much about the fish other than the ones we have. But, I think puffers are generally considered aggressive.
    Im an advisor on a goldfish site tho.. LOL

    I have what I think is a goldfish, named Goldie. She is a "survivor" of the group of feeders we got for Big Guy LOL We just let her hang around because she was never eaten. I think Fin Diesel may be biting off her scales though... she might not even be a goldfish, but she is goldish looking.

    @elearn, we maintain a 75 gallon salt water tank and have for almost two years, we have a porcupine puffer in our tank named Pork.



    We also have a Northern something or other puffer, damsels, a snowflake eel names Snow, lol. Anyway we have about 13 different kinds of exotic fish all aggressive. It is beautiful to look at like a piece of art. VERY expensive to get started, just with the live rock. But this last year has been easier, just cleaning, water change outs and cleaning.

    P.S.----This is Not a picture of MY Pork, it is just a picture of what he looks like. They get real nervous when I take pictures, I have some somewhere I am going to go look through my files.
