Hello !
No need to feel bad about telling me about the Rosy Barbs! I appreciated your concern and the advice was good, so others reading that blog might pick up some good info! I hope you get your algae problem under control, because before I finally purchased those Rosy's the black hair algae had covered just about everything in that 20 gallon tank. Your picture of your African tank is beautiful! Leaving you a vote.

That fish in the middle picture on the bottom of this page is just beautiful. I had an Oscar and convict tank a long time ago. Had one of the prettiest Jack Dempseys too. I had them a long time. The Oscars (2) got about the size of a dinner plate. Then I had an algae bloom. I fought it for months. I then tried some treatment, and it killed all my fish. I enjoyed the set up, but after that I was ready for color and activity in the tank. I sure have that now. I bought that pleco yesterday and now I haven't seen her since I put her in there. She is so small. But I know she will grow up big for me. I had mollies years and years ago. I kept getting ich in that tank when I had them. I was looking at those dalmatian mollies yesterday, but made myself walk away from them. I don't have luck with swords either. I lost 3 females. I finally gave my male to my boss. She had the 2 females and lost her male. She wanted to pay me for the fish. I told her that maybe someday if she got little ones I would take a pair or trio back from her. She said deal. I don't have room for the swords now anyway. I also had a piece of slate in my hand yesterday. Was thinking of setting up a tank to see if I could get my blushing angels to spawn. But when I saw these pretty guppies, I put the slate back. It is so fun to see a little gray squirt and a few weeks later see the big tail and beautiful colors come out. I have to do water changes today in my tanks. (My plants need watered) lol I hope you have a great Sunday. I'll talk to you later. Vote

hello african friend
yeah i am with you africans rock aye, i love mine and thanks for the noticing of my cichlids wow were some of mine hard to get i had to order special and breeders around to get what i have, honestly all are still too young to breed i do have some shellies that have bred for me like my neolamp multifasciatus and neolamp brevis just hatched some fry, my frontosa are still immature at 2 years old 5 to 6 inches should be in 2 years or so for them to me mature enough to breed wow they take there time to grow as well but for a fish that lives for 25 years i can understand why it takes a long time aye, now i have been in the hobby for 21+ years i am more patient now, take care buddy i hope your weekend is great..><}}}">

Thought I would come check this page out tonight. Another beautiful tank. I am green with jealousy that you work in a fish store. I always though that when I grew up I would work in a fish store or a green house. Those are my two passions. How many tanks do you have up and running at your house? I see that you have been a member of the Fish Channel for a long time. It is odd that our paths haven't crossed before now. My husband says I have the gift to gab.LOL Well it is nice meeting you and I will check out another one of your pages tomorrow. Leaving you a vote.

A little bit of Algae
Saw your cichlid setup and had to drop by. A little bit of algae is a good sign. What kind of cichlids do you have? I have prolific convicts (pink and grey) and red devils. Drop by sometime.

take care.

I like this tank
I really do, you have some fun worlds my okie-friend! So I got some new pics up and the killis tank on site if you get a chance, let me know what you think. I have a mini and ugly shipwreck in the killis that the leader digs playing in so it's here to stay. So I put the bubble stone in one side so it's extra tacky, the way we like it! hehe, hope all is well in your wonderful world, don't work too hard, you need your strength to get that 75 going!

hey hey hey
You are gonna laugh cuz the new tank has the clown skull and crossbones from the t-rex tank that when it won someone said was no bueno!hehe. I am also seriously considering putting a small t-rex or triceratops skull ornament in there, hehehe, no fooling, I am gonna do it when I get some play money! Good to hear from ya and so glad to hear about that salt tank, I am the last person to say hey is there too many cuz no, there is not, but in our little apt I got tired of buckets and 10 gals across the house to haul, not supposed to be doing that kind of lifting and it was becoming apparent as to why. So I have 3 tanks in one area now and that python no spill has been put to dern good use as a result. Oh, in the killis tank as yet to be photoed I have a little ship wreck that I shall put the airstone in for extra funny tacky!

I agree
I agree On the colorful rocks and decor. I like natural habitat looking things. Not shipwrecks or blue and red rock. Small river rock is the way to go.

no b-words for us, girl-
as my boyfriend so diplomatically states, I am not a *B*, I diplomatically remind others with my straightforward vocal discrimination after assessing the situation and putting forth a new way for them to look at what they are doing and opt for a more aesthetically pleasing decision in their endeavor so that they may not suffer from the dreaded morning after "OMG, what have I done?" syndrome. I love my man, he has the biggest vocabulary and knows how to use it! I like your style, very much, and wish you well on your quest today at the store to help those who can't help themselves!!!!
