Sorry it took so long to reply, had a crazy week last week! My aunt had a huge calico fancy goldfish that was about 15. Her HUGE pleco is that old too, and is the last fish we're waiting to pass on. She's just not ready to part with it and isn't sure it would survive being moved and getting re-set up. I'm with her, plus I don't want the creepy huge pleco! I got spined in the palm of my hand some years ago by an 8" pleco that I startled when cleaning a tank, and wow, did that ever hurt. My aunts pleco has spines that give me the shivers when I see them, they'd go through my hand I'm sure! Ok, I doubt I'd touch it but still, accidents do happen! Did you get any new fish yet? I'll be ordering the albino bushy nose pleco this month from a LFS, cuz I always get b-day money to buy fish with. Other than that, I don't think I'll be getting too many other fins right now, all tanks are pretty balanced and I may get lucky and end up with my aunts tank before too long.

the sewer tank is just what is looks like, all fake and crazy so I don't worry about plant eaters. Actually, I never do, the only live plants I have are Java moss and fern and those grow quick and reproduce fast so it's never been an issue with either of my clown plecos in the 55. Besides, they all get their algae wafers a few days a week plus Emerald Entree is part of their regular diet. does your LFS feed the fish live foods so you'll have to wean to frozen? Interesting, most only do for a treat, not as a regular diet since most folks buying don't use live. I keep trying to get live worms from our one LFS but I don't normally get there on the day of shipment so by the time I arrive they are either out or have killed them already. Worms are tricky to keep if you don't rinse them daily! One of these days I'll set up my own worm station and grow my own but not until I finally get that big giant dream tank going. Besides, the family is already creeped out by the foods in the fridge and freezer, and they aren't ever too fond of a tub of live worms too, much less several hehe. I tell them it helps keep them from overeating, but I don't think they believe that. My son's face when I chop the krill for the dragon is hilarious, but then again, I don't touch the crickets or meal worms for the gecko so guess we all have our pet food limits hehe.

Happy Holiday!
and Merry Christmas a bit late ;). Sorry I am late answering your question on shrimp and Angelfish. Yes, my Angels will chase and eat cherry shrimp when I release some into there tank from my 50 (they breed like rabbits in the 50 so I try to thin them out and feed to the Angels). Some that I release don't get eaten and they are breeding and thriving in the Angel tank as well. it is planted enough with hiding places that they do OK together with the Angelfish keeping there numbers down. They don't seem to out right hunt them but during the release and if they swim about openly they will be eaten.

Hope you have a good week and Happy New Year!

I think they'd get along fine as long as you got them roughly the same size to start with, they could grow together. I think the only issue knife fish have other than if something will fit in their mouth is they use a weak electric sensing system and I have read you don't want to mix with other fish who do too cuz they get their 'wires crossed' so to speak and it causes territorial issues, but I think that would be a great combo in a tank! Well, I have a lot to do today so I can stay home tomorrow and prepare for the big weekend. Hope your day is a good one!

funny enough
I don't like the purple glofish as much as the others, and the blue are actually more colorful when I have the actinic blue light on, as well as in regular light they have a lovely bright yellow head and stripe all down their back, and the blue is like a blue raspberry candy. You don't see the yellow in the actinic light though, just a ghostly blue. They all move way to fast for me to get a decent shot of, but you can check out my video spazsewer, funny enough the blue don't show up so great in it, I think cuz the tank has so much blue in it already, but they are really cool. The purple don't really show much at all in either lighting. The red, green and orange show the best. Check out for some great pics and videos.
