    WOW! what size tank? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]
    Darn snails...there is a snailacide now, you can get it at petsmart... I'm not sure if it is safe for the fish though, it is probably dangerous for any invertabrate [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/ghostface.gif[/img]

    That's a pretty funny list, DKiM128.

    etc. LOL

    Wow. A gold nugget pleco. Do you know what L number it is?

    My main aim in aquaria right now is breeding. I'm trying to find some new fish to breed. I'd also like to get into killies... not a lot of room around here, and they don't need much. 8)

    My next goal for breeding fish are Cherry barbs, then Rummy-noses or Neon, and corys. Gotta get me some cories that i like, first, though. I'd also like to try bettas.

    My main tank is one that i 'inherited' when i moved into the new apartment. It sits at the second floor landing and is a 75 gallon beauty. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Only thing in it when i got it was a huge pleco, huge cichlid, and one smaller cichlid who was living on the run to avoid being eaten. That and gravel full of black sediment that obviously hadn't been cleaned in years. I moved the old fish out, cleaned, pulled out the nasty, brittle fake plants, cleaned, added plants and my light strip from my 55 gallon, cleaned, and then moved everything from the 55 gallon to the new tank. The 55 is now my lowland terrarium.

    I have a little 10 gallon in my room as a breeder and separate plant tank.

    I haven't had java moss grow well for me since i added the brighter PC lights a while back, but there are still fugitive strands winding their way amongst the stem plants. I can send you some plants. Are you interested?

    I have 8 goldfish in my tank now. I started off with 10 back in 1994. Over the years I lost all but one of the original 10 feeder goldfish I started with to cycle the tank. (the original plan was to stock it with cichlids, but that never happened). Today I have 1 of the original feeders still alive an well in my tank.. and 7 of 10 of the 2nd batch of feeders I got in '98. All of them now live in a full 55 gallon tank with only undergravel filtration (UG filters are powered by 2 Aqua clear 201 powerheads 1 utilizing the Venturi airflow system.. thats it.. no backfilters, or air pumps of any kind)

    i don't think this topic should be called grow list as we don't grow fish , we raise them , fishlist is a better name [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] . heres my list :

    silver arowana
    3 male bettas
    utricularia
    duck weed

    thats it , if you think thats little , then you have raised a arowana yet , and the bettas crap alot , and everything else is growling like a weed .
